Ral Partha 01-114 Thief Speedpaint

Recommended Posts

Beautiful job Rob, one of my all time favorite thief figures. I think I've actually painted him thrice, mostly in the same color scheme.  So with his hand, I think he's actually wearing a pair of long gloves.

That could be.  The left arm was smooth enough that I didn’t read it that way.  I think of ambiguous sculpting as being a modern thing, but I guess it’s always been with us.  ::D:  I start working from home today, so that’s two hours back in my schedule...I want to paint one of the other thieves next:

My favorite in the set has always been the guy with the big hat...

 

Anyway, here’s the first thief as based:

As usual, the varnish has smoothed out the appearance of the highlighting a bit, which is a help on this one.

 

For new people, here’s a scale shot...I was reminded as I started this how petite the old RPs are in comparison with current standards:

Hopefully this means we're going to be seeing the full set of four thieves in the near future!  Fun to see him against Sir Forscale, they were some pretty petite little guys.

      My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.

      Hello gents and gentesses!
       
      So today's miniature I'm going to have to show in edited form, as she's fully exposing all of her mammalian virtues.
       
      This one is a "female victim", from a set of the same name, sculpted by Dennis Mize for his miniature range "Children of the Night", sculpted way back in 1979.  I always forget to, but I should have taken a picture of her next to some point of reference, because she's a small miniature, 25 miniatures instead of the 28-32 of modern times.

      Here is here face:
       

       
      and here is a link to see the rest of her in Instagram:
      https://www.instagram.com/p/CAqKGQXnPgh/
       
      or if you don't have access to Instagram, another shot of her from the Lost Mini Wiki:
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/9/9d/DF-247_A.JPG
       
      which only gives a single angle of her front.
       
      In any case, a nice and simple figure to to, as it's just a girl and her skin basically.
       
      Here is the whole set, unpainted, so unedited:
       
       
      Crazy the things we were allowed to buy in the eighties as teenagers!

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      so I've been painting a goodly amount this last week or so, but it's been so cloudy I haven't been able to take proper photographs.  Today was the first day the weather showed a bit of sun, so got some photographs going.  Here is the first one I've been working on, the Drakonne by Bob Charrette.  I'm about 99.9578% that this is based on the dragonne in the first hardback Monster Manual, with a slight consonant adjustment to avoid any copyright infringements.  
       
      So looks lots of photos from lots of angles:
       

       
      Cross between a lion and a copper dragon as per the Monster Manual, so tried to do a similar color scheme.  
       
      Anyhoos, more to come soon, just got to get the photos edited and made presentable.

      And here is the second one I finished this morning, another Ral Partha figure sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the eighties.
       
      This one looks to be pretty clearly based on the Evil Queen of Disney fame.  I didn't want to give her exactly the same colors, so threw in some orange into the mix.
       
      I think this is another Ral Partha Import resculpt.   I added a close up photo, but realized afterwards there is a little fuzz or lint or something on the cloak, sorry about that. Adding it in anyway, sa I'm too lazy to retake the photos.

      Hello guys and gals!
      Here is one of the minis I just finished this morning, a Ral Partha Kindly Old Wizard, I think sculpted by Dennis Mize.  Sadly I forgot about the "old" part in the Kingly Old Wizard, and made his beard much more brown than a really old wizard would have I'm thinking.  
       
      This is one of the Ral Partha Imports that Dennis Mize sculpted based on some old Citadel miniatures.  So anyhoos, here he is, feigning friendliness!
