Thanks Glitterwolf!

Not being the nostalgic type, I would say that the miniature does not do the paint job credit.

I'm thinking that's a compliment Adrift, so thank you!  The nice thing is if you take a "less modern" miniature and apply a decent coat of paint, they really do end up coming out pretty nicely and there are so many older miniatures wandering around the multiverse, they really just need a bit of love and care.

It was definitely a compliment to you!

I love following your work and you are one of the top reasons I still come to this forum.

 

Is the dagger meant to be curved like that? It feels bent.

Thanks Beowulf! That’s very kind of you to say so!  
 

That’s actually the way the dagger came, it’s very crooked and odd.

Very good work making that rather complicated armour look realistic.

Thanks paintybeard! It was really the only complicated part of the whole figure. 
 

this gal has a male version that I’m painting at the moment. Also a very simple figure with the exception of the armor studs.

think that thief is 1995-1996.  I have, or at least had, it - but that stuff is still heavily disorganized.  My memory says mid-90s or later, for however much my memory may still be worth.

Here’s their page for range on the Lost Mini Wiki. The only bad thing is it doesn’t mention the years

 

http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Player_Character_Sets_(Male_%26_I'd probably have to wander around their catalogues to figure out exactly when they started being available. The good thing is you can still get them all at Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha.

Very nice job!

Thank you very much Warlady!

 

I ended up editing a nice close up of the face:

It shows all the little points of dirt, dust and debris, but it's nice to do a close up sometimes.

The skin has a wonderful warm undertone to it - lovely!

Thank you Iridil, it started out as olive skin and did washes and highlights from there!

      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!

      Hello guys!
       
      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!

      Hi guys and gals, 
       
      So just painted these two, which were pretty simple jobs being they didn't have too many things hanging off of them.  These are bugbears sculpted by Tom Meier, back in 1983.  I had always thought these were odd kind of figures, because my other concept of bugbears at the time were the Monster Manual version as well as the two Grenadier bugbears that were available at the time.  One of my future projects is to paint the Grenadier bugbears as well, plus some more recent Partha bugbears and I think I have somewhere the female bugbear by Reaper that I'd like to paint up.
       
      Anyhoos, these guys have these huge eyes that I really didn't know what to do with.  I thought of one color and not put in any pupils, but then changed my mind.  Hopefully green eyes look okay.  
       

      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      So for those who celebrate such things, I hope you all had a really nice Thanksgiving as well as a beautiful Black Friday!
       
      So I finished these a few days ago, but have kind of been a bit busy for posting.  They both have shields, but only one of them I had to worry about putting a "something" on the shield.  I didn't know exactly what to put on there, so ended up with a little green face with X'd out eyes. There was still space so painted a little triangle.  No great significance, just filling in some space.
       
      Being I was painting them too both at the same time and in the effort of saving time I ended up painting their footwear equal colors, hopefully nobody will think the less of me for it.
       

       

       
      These are two miniatures from Ral Partha, sculpted by Dennis Mize, that were part of their Ral Partha Imports range.   Partha originally was distributing some Citadel figures back in the eighties, but I think they either lost the rights to the miniatures or just decided to sculpt their own alternative versions.  In any case as a result, there are some Citadel figures that have a Partha version, mostly sculpted back then by Dennis Mize.  
       
      I was watching too around last week Anne's Twitch channel in which she mentioned she actually does some painting or dry brushing of static grass and I mean to try it one of these days, just haven't quite figured out with it yet if it's just a bit of random dry brushing or if there would be a method to it.  It kind makes sense though.  I found out years ago that if you used sand or rocks on your bases, it looks a lot better if you painted them as well, as the rocks don't seem to check with the whole miniature and base being painted.  
       
      So anyhoos, everybody enjoy your long weekend if you happen to have one, don't shop too much, and maintain some social distancing!

      Hello to all the forumites of this fine page!
       
      So just finished this set a few days ago, the Ral Partha Water Lords, sculpted by Jim Johnson I'm thinking in the nineties, even though as per always, I forgot to look at the date stamp at the bottom before I put them on their base.
       
      I can really only directly show one of these minis, because the other two are ladies with their aquatic lady parts floundering all over, so here's the first one:
       

       
      and here is then a link to the female aquatic elf:
       
      Female aquatic elf from the Water Lords
       
      If you were interested in seeing other angles (this is the one I put on the Lost Mini Wiki), you could check out on my Instagram account Moonglumsminis
       
      And here is the Water Elemental in this set, a really cool piece in my opinion, but once again, full of even more mammal parts than the lady elf:
       
      Water Elemental
       
      Also on my Instagram page is the back angle of this wet and wonderful woman!
       
      So it was very fun painting these guys, and I got to use a lot of my sea color paints from Reaper, which just don't get enough use these days.  For the elves, I wanted them to be kind of subdued colors, as if they were down in the deep blue sea, and then with the male elf's mount, I was kind of in a conundrum, do I also give him subdued colors, or do I do a more tropical color scheme to offset the pale elf colors?  In the end, I opted for the brighter tropical colors to give hopefully a bit more visual interest.  
       
      The whites I think as the highlights for the water come off "whiter" in the actual minis, wish that would translate a bit more in the photos, but I think they came out more or less decently.  
       
      Around this same time, Ral Partha also did some other "elemental" blister packs, they did a fire one, an air one, and an earth blister pack. They were all sculpted by Jim Johnson, one of the few sculptors I can never seem to find anything out about.  I'd previously painted a female djinn from the air set, but I think I'm going revisit them all to hopefully get them all done one of these days in the far-flung future.  And just as a final mention, you can get all of these elemental minis, the water ones and others, on the Iron Wind Metals web site.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and have a beautiful week of labor and painting (labor as work, not a week full of pre-partum pain)!
