Ral Partha Elven fighters, male and female

Recommended Posts

Great job!

 

You might already know this, but on Lostwiki Mini, you can actually download many older catalogues.

Ral Partha, Grenadier, Metal Magic etc.

They're visible on the bottom of the respective pages.

Might be useful for looking up SKU's / Sculptors etc.

Nice set of siblings!

I guess I never thought of their relationship quite like that, but now that you think about it, they could be brother and sister.

Thank you Glitterwolf!

 

Yup, the LostMini Wiki has some catalogues, also on the ralpartha.com site they have some as well.  When I get so inspired I'm going to try to figure out who sculpted these.

Very clean paint job, and a great color choice. You really brought those minis to life!

Thank you very much! jdizzy001!

Beautiful whites. A color I have problems portraying realistically in large areas. 

I think one of ways to get white to work is to usually start with an off white (their shirts started as leather white and I think the pants were either linen white or creamy bone, don't remember) then work down in washes from there and highlight with pure white.

Wonderful color scheme - very silivian but with the yellow it looks different. The staves are wonderfully done with the well highlighted dark - marvelous

Thanks, I wanted some little pop of color with the white, which is why I did that yellow inner cloak. I did think about just everything being shades of white, but didn't want it to be too bland.

Just checked and according to the Lost Mini Wiki, the sculptor was Jeff Grace!8EB74F10-B421-4C14-9220-0768F43E2929.jpeg.051a388014c5afb6be5f0de2c82621b0.jpeg

Thanks Loim! Crazily enough, I wanted them to actually be more blue than black but they ended out turning out blacker than blue.

Yup, love those matching yellow cloaks.  Beautiful job!

A set of his and hers cloaks, all the fantasy couples want them!

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.
       
      Technical notes:

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!
