Ral Partha Imports (maybe) pirate lass

Very nice! Great skin tones!

Thanks Lastraven! She’s a pirate and out in the sun all day so I figured she needed to be a bit tan. I think I started out her skin with Reaper’s Tanned Shadow.

 Were there any base markings on her?

 

Ah, a man who loves a mystery! So I forgot that I had a second copy of her. Here’s the markings on the bottom:BE723DDC-B058-49D4-AA34-46E50B0DB3E6.jpeg.b51e4db99ef7bfc880fe2df69a209a35.jpeg
 

Ral Partha Imports 1984. So now to check out that year’s or the following year’s catalogue!

Well, that'd put it squarely at the end of Citadel's non-slotta base figure runs. Been looking, but not seeing anything in the catalog. However, the Partha Imports 1984 catalog only had maybe 1 pic for every 3 figs.

Yeah the good old days when you couldn’t necessarily see a photo of a miniature before you bought it.

Is it just me or does she appear to be intently studying the tip of her sword?  Great work on everything, she looks very natural in that darker skin tone.  And there's nothing wrong with that sword!

She’s contemplating who she’s going to stick that tip into!

The contrasting colours really make her pop. I like the skintone and how you painted the white tunic. Not an easy colour. The NMM doesn't work for me, but it might just need a bright edge highlight to give it that metal look.

I totally agree with you on the NMM, I have a history of in my opinion at least of very hit and miss with metals.  Sometimes I kind of nail it but more often it's a bit wanting.

I've never seen her before! Really like the bright cloth against her tan skin - good old school stuff!

She's probably make a bit of an easy target with that bandana, but I'm sure she's thinking more about fashion.

      And another Shadowrun figure, the third figure from what was originally a three piece set of Elven subtypes.
       
      This dapper gentleman is a Wakyambi, which from what I read on line (haven't ever actually ever played Shadowrun or own any of the gaming books), he's an African Elf Subtype, tall and thin.  He was fun to paint, but his dingly dangly stuff eventually just made me cry for mercy in the hopes I would someday finish. His necklace and his little staff had quite a bit of details to it, as well has his funky monkey belt buckle.
       

       
      and here is the set in its entirety, not completely great focus, but it's hard to get three figures to focus nicely:
       

       
      So three more finished, I wonder how many more I can get done before I go to the great beyond?  Hopefully 50 or more per year for another thirty to forty years, but we'll see....

      Hello to all you bovine aficionados!
       
      So a while back ago I did a normal minotaur, Greek-type mythological beast with an axe on two legs.   This one is a little different, it's a Shadowrun Minotaur which has a bull's body and a "primate" face.  I think Jim Johnson sculpted it back in the nineties, as usual forgot to check for a date on the bottom.  Pretty straight forwards colors, and it's actually kind of a big and heavy model. Put him on an oval base because there was no way he was going to fit on a normal size circle one:
       

       
      Anyhoos, hope you guys all enjoy him!

      Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
       
      So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
       
      I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
       
      So here she is:
       

       
      and here is a close up of her eyes.  Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly.  From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology.  I never had these issues back in the eighties.

       
      Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres.  This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
       
      So back to the painting table!  Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!

      Hello Reaperholics!
       
      So I've had this one finished for a few days now, but I usually photograph one sunny days and the last few days have been kind of cloudy.
      I actually really enjoy the figure, once you get paint on her, you bring out more detail.  She's from Ral Partha's Shadowrun range. Her original set came with a dryad and another large elf subtype that I'm also working on. I have the dryad done, but I wasn't happy with her eyes so I'm going to try one more time to fix the eyes before I take final pictures.
      Anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!

       
      For whatever reason, I seem to always see magic flame as green, so this mini was no exception!

      Finished these off. Really easy to paint and enjoyed the process. Reaper Razig shown on right for scale.
