Ral Partha Houri with Dagger sculpted by Dennis Mize

Recommended Posts

Very good work on such a tiny mini.

And I think the eyes look good, the lipstick is awesome!

I like how you pay attention to detail like the fingernails. The skin tone and the shading on her white ceremonial dress are stunning. Beautiful work.

Thanks Glitterwolf! Lots of my lipsticks are really dark, so this was more of a light bright pink to match the clothes a little bit and her nail polish.

Thanks Metalchaos! With her dress, I really wanted to give an illusion of transparency which I don’t think I achieved, but it still came out okay I think.

I actually like this miniature a lot, even though the proportions are a little weird.

 

I see what you mean about the proportions.  

 

Here is a link to what might be the original inspiration...dates all the way back to White Dwarf #13. Russ Nicholson is the Illustrator.

 

Can't show it inline; might break the forum rules.

But compare the figures: each one is female, human, similar scant outfits, armed with dagger.

Thanks TGP, I never knew that drawing existed and I'm pretty sure that you're correct.  Here's the original Citadel version of that miniature:

Citadel-FA-FA20.jpg.86b2a9414d011202bc052228e22e3c38.jpg

 

With that original drawing, I would have loved to have painted it so transparent, but I feel my skills just aren't there.  What I really want is to hunt down this Citadel version to also paint, it's a really neat little piece.  

 

I've got actually some Citadel figures here at home, maybe 15-20 lying around,  that I want to little by little start painting, just have to start doing them amidst my other little minis.

I think you managed to get a nice feel of transparency. The fabric seems silky.

You're just being kind, but I appreciate it in any case!

      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!

      Hi guys and guyettes!
       
      So continuing on with some Dennis Mize Children of the Night dinosaurs, here is the Monoclonius Agathaumas:
       

       
      He went on a long, oval base because he was just too big for whatever circular ones I had. Tried to once again stay away from a green or grey color scheme. Not a very dramatic pose, just a dinosaur kind of hanging out, but I think he's pretty swell as far as dinosaurs go.  Not a triceratops, doesn't have those wonderful long horns on his head, just little nubs.   If I get so inspired, I'll go look up his name to see what actually is known about this particular type of dinosaur and where he lived, et cetera.
       
      Back in the days of my youth, the seventies, we as kids really loved anything related to dinosaurs and cavemen.  But those were back in the days of pre-pre Jurassic Park, we had more Harryhausen as our main provider of cinematic dinosaurs, and whatever books we could get at book stores.  
       
      Speaking of seventies dinosaurs, has anybody visited the Flintstone Park in South Dakota and is it still there?

      Hello sentient painting creatures!
       
      So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
       

       
      from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
       
      With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
       

       
      I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy.  The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
       
      Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!
