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!

      Good morning everybody and Happy New Year!
       
      So I actually had these painted since the very beginning of the year, but had to go out of town and couldn't get their bases finished until I got back.  So here are my first miniatures completed for 2020, four lizard men that Julie Guthrie sculpted for Ral Partha if I recall correctly in 1982-1983 with her series All Things Dark and Dangerous.  I've always really loved these figures and have had them on my pending list of stuff to paint, but finally got around to really painting them.  I painted each one in a different color because I wanted a bit of variety.  They did all start of though being covered by a good layer of Creamy Ivory (Reaper) and then I did washes on all that, and then afterwards chose the actual color and kept going.
       
      Anyhow, hope you guys like these guys!

      So as the year comes to a close, this is my last miniature of 2019.    I thought my figure from a few days ago would be the last but I got lucky enough to have  time to squeeze one more in!
       
      This one is a Dennis Mize figure from who knows what year, but pretty old, and she was sitting on my desk for months already primed and ready to go. Somehow the inspiration took me and I started working on her a few days ago, and in delightful old class Partha form, her lack of additional dingly dangly items on her person made her a pretty quick paint job, just herself, her armor, shield, weapon and a belt.  So got her done a few nights ago, got the base done last night.
       
      With this gal, one of my issues (as always )was what I was going to put on her shield, because I never know what to do, but in a moment of inspiration it occurred to me that she could use an enchanted shield to make up for her limited visibility due to her poked out eyeball that would have been under that patch.  So I made the the opposite eye open on her shield and voila, I've solved her limited vision issue!
       
      So my total for 2019 was 60 miniatures, the majority Partha, but a smattering of Reaper as well.  Did two Thunderbolt Mountain minis as well.
       
       
      Anyhoos,  Happy 2020 everybody and we'll certainly speak next year with all next year with new miniatures to share!
       
      Mark

      Good evening all!
       
      here comes another rogue, the male version of the female that I just finished a few days ago.  For both of them I did the same skin color, starting out with Olive Skin, but then the other colors I diverged. I was thinking, much unlike the earlier elves and half-elves I did, that rogues would be more chaotic and independent and wouldn't likely dress so similarly.
       
      I tried to give this guy that kind of reddish hair that you sometimes see with Afghan men on the TV, the ones that probably dye their beards.  Didn't just want a black or deep brown. Don't know if it turned out like I'd hoped, would welcome your opinions:
       

       
      And here are a few photos of them together:
       

       
      I also did different bases on them.  Upon hindsight, I probably should have done them both equally, but oh well, too late now!
