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.

      Good evening gents and gentettes,
       
      So finally got another one finished this afternoon. I was working on him for a while now and got done painting him two nights ago, let him cure, got his base attached last night, and then this afternoon on my lunch break (working from home for the foreseeable future) got his grass stuck on and photos taken.
       
      So with this elf, I didn't want to just do him in either browns or greens, so went with yellows and oranges with some leathery colors instead.  I also did his bow thinking of more of an ivory bow, so off white. There were a few other things I could have done with him, but calling him done. This one is a classic Ral Partha Julie Guthrie figure from her range "All Things Dark and Dangerous", from back in the eighties.  Most of them you can still end up getting still from Iron Wind, so that is a plus. Anyways, here he is, hope you like him!

      Am cracking on with some opposition to my orc pirates. These are the Razig warlord pirate minis. The bases are resin (they are meant to depict trenches but think they will work here). Have sprayed them all with Army Painter skeleton bone. Then a sepia ink wash all over for definition and a process of going through and colouring in. Am going to add a cannon as well. Am going for quite a colourful scheme, that will be muted by the pre shading and then dusted up with an all over drybrush of off white.

      Am putting together a skirmish game crew of Fantasy type pirates. Would be brilliant to match these with the Brinewind minis or the Pirates of the Dread Sea game when that comes out. These are all Reaper. One is a human pirate that I've painted as a half orc. Next steps are to include an orc toting a cannon (because magic cannons don't recoil and blow your arms off apparently) and the female goblin pirate from the warlord range. 
      Most of the minis came with a small plank base. I stuck them to mdf round bases and added bits of coffee stirrers to them. Then did a simple water effect using gloss mod podge over bright blue.

      We were basically on apocalypse watch at work today, so I decided to take my mind off it for a little while at lunch with a speedpaint (60 minutes). Over the weekend I prepared a handful of Ral Partha individuals, inspired by my recent trip to Cincycon, so I brought a group of four with me today.
       
      I tried this guy as a warm-up; it’s been a while since I painted a true 25 metal individual. I wanted to use lighter colors because I usually tend towards dark.  I hoped that the Heart Throb Pink over the Cinnamon Red would look faded.  It needs more blending to stand up to be photographed at this level of enlargement.  I’m also not sure what the extra layer of cloth at the right (but not left) wrist is suppose to be, so I painted it grey. 
       
      I will post a picture of him based, hopefully tomorrow.
