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.

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.

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

I really loved these sets. Great job on these.

The black on the staves is stunning.

 

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 to all you Reaperthalians!
       
      Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure.    I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
       

       
      my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
       
      I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.  
       
      I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
       
      Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!

      Hello all you Reapertoniks!
       
      Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?
       

       
      Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reapervites!
      So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.
       
      With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:
       

       
      Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!
       
      So enjoy!

      Hello all you Reaperlodytes!
       
      Continuing the work on some old school goodness, more Ral Partha elves from 1976 I think:
       

       
      These are all wood elves, and I've got some more coming, so I'm trying to get them painted in browns, yellows, oranges and greens.
       
      These are their two spearmen.
       
      Just like the Elven Princess, back in the pre-history of miniatures.  Super straight forward, a little awkward, amazing to compare these to Tom Meier's more recent figures!

      Good evening Reaperologists!
       
      So tonight taking a journey back to the past in the late seventies when Ral Partha was in its infancy, here is a Ral Partha Elven Princess, sculpted by Tom Meier.  A simple miniature from a simple time, it shows how far miniature sculpting has come over the years with an early Meier sculpt. Take this one an compare it to his more contemporary works, from Dark Sword Miniatures for example:
       

       
      More oldies coming soon!
