It's a great day in the Cretaceous Period, hot, humid and just a bit oppressive. The raptors* have gathered to discuss hunting strategies.
Of course there may be disagreements about tactics...
And who gets to lead the pack during the hunt...
Sorry for the fuzziness. Still getting used to the new light set up in the photo booth.
*Including a pair of Wizkids Deep Cuts raptors
And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020!
So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy.
His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits.
My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash.
Winter Salutations to you cold weather Reaper ptarmigans!
So I'd mentioned in a previous post how Ral Partha Legacy, a sister company of Iron Wind Metals, has recently opened up and one of their ranges they have acquired is Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures. So here is one of them a Wood Elf Lady:
I really love these miniatures. I'm used to painting Ral Partha stuff, but these are quite a bit different, as the detail is so fine and detailed. The eyes and some of the jewelry is so small and hard to paint. Even though they are 30 mm, they are quite realistically proportioned so lots of the details aren't exaggerated.
Anyhoos, hope you enjoy, and if you've got a few moments check out the Ral Partha Legacy page!
Hello again Reaper Message Boardonians!
So here's another piece of old school goodness, a Ral Partha Charging Barbarian, sculpted by Julie Guthrie way back in the delightful eighties. This one was originally in one of the Partha Boxed sets, 98-015 Bezerkers, and now is sold individually at Iron Wind Metals.
Pretty quick to paint as he was unencumbered by too much armor, clothing or general stuff. My biggest challenge with this fellow was to figure out his hair color. Blonde eventually won the day.
Anyhoos, please enjoy!
I'm not sure if this is the place to put this and I don't think it's permissible to put links to other web sites, but just as some general information, Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, that was a company that Tom Meier had founded quite a many years ago after leaving Ral Partha, are once again available, and being cast through a subsidiary company of Ral Partha, called Ral Partha Legacy. They are working on releasing some classic Partha for their Chaos Wars game, other miniatures that were previously out of production, and of special note, miniatures from Thunderbolt Mountain. At the moment on their site they have all their 32 mm elves, orcs and goblins, as well as their smaller 25mm Arthurians and a variety of other historical and fantasy miniatures. Worth checking out, some very nice pieces out there!
