Ral Partha Fighter Mage with Sword, sculpted by Julie Guthrie

Awesome paintjob.

His expression and posture somehow make me think this is a very evil man

Yeah, he definitively gives off a sinister vibe...

Very nice painting of an elegant classic - I have a fondness for the look of fabrics from those figures - love the subtle sinister look to him - brightly colored evil!

You can't go wrong with evil and red, except in the case of Santa of course.....

Your painting style really goes well with these classic minis.  You pull out the detail and the character of them.  Well done.

Hello all and good evening!

 

Another figure finished last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from the early eighties, Fighter Mage with Sword, a set of three fighter mages that she sculpted in the good old days.

 

Fun figure, pretty straightforward.  His long scarf is apparently a millipede, also a nice little touch!

Anyhoos, did him in kind of an oriental style, hope you all enjoy him!

 

oh for sure, very first character i played " back in the day D&D " was a dual class fighter-mage

 

do you have, (plan to paint) , the other 2 from the series?

Yes actually, I've been trying to paint these older Guthrie pieces by original blister pack, so sooner or later I'll get the other two as well.

      The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
       

      As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames.  I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
      This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
      At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
       

      What is this sorcery?! 
      Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

      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!

      Hello everybody!
       
      Here's a figure I just finished a few nights back and got her based.  She's a old, classic Ral Partha figure, Adventuress 01-018, so in that long list of Partha figures in "Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night" range, number 18.  I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I read out there on the Lost Mini Wiki that this was the first female adventuring type of miniature that was cast.  This is in all honesty the second version of the sculpt, don't have the first one. On the bottom, she had 1976 stamped on its base so it's a nice old figure.  
       

       
      I tried not to paint her in too bright of colors, kind of wanted her to be able to wander around with kind of calm colors.  Anyways, hope you enjoy this "historic" little mini, she was a joy to paint!

      So I've actually been pretty productive these last couple weeks, and here is another miniature I finished up last night, an executioner, sculpted by Julie Guthrie back in the eighties.  Pretty basic figure, very few colors, didn't take too long to paint.
       

       
      was lucky today in that it's reasonably sunny outside so I've got some good natural lighting going on.
       
      Not sure how happy I am with his axe, turned out a little dark, and I considered putting some blood on it, but in the end thinking maybe it's his first head-whacking of the morning, and hopefully he cleans it daily.
       
      With his long weekend I was able to paint quite a lot, and this gentleman was done pretty much all this week. He'd been sitting on a base primed for years, but he seemed to be a nice straightforward figure that I could get done quickly.
       
      So hopefully you all enjoy another trip back into our miniature prehistory!
