The last Ral Partha Victim, once again warning, mammal parts abound

Hello again!

 

so here is my last Ral Partha Victim, sculpted by Dennis Mize, back in 1979.  Once again a little on the disrobed side, so I'll give you just the face here, and the rest of her you can check out on the links below.

 

With her, I wanted to paint her because I wanted to try to start working more on transparent clothing.  So I started with her dress, but I think maybe incorrectly chose yellow as the dress color, which upon retrospect doesn't give enough contrast between her "fair skin" (the actual Reaper color) and the yellow paint I used for her dress.  The blue blouse I think turned out better, more visually transparent.

She's a tad out of focus with this extreme close up, but hopefully this will inspire you to see the rest of her in the links.

 

So here's Instagram, where you can see her from all angles:

or just where I stuck her main photo in the Lost Mini Wiki:

So anyhow, that's the last of the naked miniatures I have in mind for the near future, I promise the rest will have a bit more clothing on, or will be monsters that just don't need clothing!

Basically ran out of naked minis! 

Honestly though, painting naked figures is nice to get a chance to focus purely on skin and faces and not to have to worry about basically everything else: clothing, weapons, stuff hanging off of belts, et cetera. This gal was an exception because I got to work with transparent clothing as well, which I’d like to learn to do better.

She's awesome!

Another great job on a tiny face.

I also appreciate that you update LostminiWiki with your stuff, I often look at that site and having pics with an entry is very helpful.

Thank you Glitterwolf!  

 

I really dig the Lost Mini Wiki, as it has such a huge visual library available to look at.  I really typically only update my own artist page there:

and then somebody else usually ends up loading them in other spots under the ranges they are/were actually produced.  I wish more people would add painted versions of these old figures out there. It's really nice to see them in vivid color.

      A really nice mini! Highlighting the skin was fun! 😁 Thanks for looking!

      Sorry guys, not too technically advanced, but here is a link to the Ral Partha Legacy's fourth Kickstarter, this time adding elves, dwarves, humans, orcs/goblins and some creatures to the mix.   Check it out, you can buy in a wide variety of ways, be if from the individual figure to large armies in bundles and packages.  The majority of this was sculpted by Tom Meier, and all the new pieces were sculpted by him as well.  Lots of visual images and aid to help you decide what you'd might like to snag.  I'm biased as a long time fan of both Partha and Meier, I'm definitely going to grab a good number of individual pieces on this one!
       
      EDIT:  Added some photos of the new sculpts from Mr. Meier:

      Hello my little Rearperlificos!
       
      so tonight just got finished up and photographed, a male and female fighter in plate armor, sculpted by the enigmatic Jim Johnson (one of those sculptors I know nothing about but has had a hugely prolific career) that he sculpted I think back in the nineties when he did a range of figures for Partha, which were a male and a female version of the same character class. I've already painted up a bunch of these different figures, and these are my most recent ones.  I wanted to do red as their breastplates, helmets and grieves with more bronze tones than gold, after seeing Anne Forester working on bronzes in Twitch with the Kickstarter V Centaur.  I'n not ver happy how the vertical bronze strip came out on the male fighter, but buh, too lazy to really keep fixing to perfection.  Also, this is the second time I took pictures of these figures because there was lots of crud, dust and hair on the figures the first time.  I went back and rephotographed them a second time and I still see a few little dust spots even though I knocked a bunch of them off.  Anyhoos, here they are for your viewing pleasure:
       
      the female:

       
      The male:
       

       
      and being they were originally sold in a blister pack together, here they are in the same photo:
       

       
      I would usually put them on bases but the gal has a wide base that is a little too big to fit on the one inch base, and I didn't have a slightly larger base sitting around so I just sealed them really good and am going to leave them like that. In any case they just sit in a display case, a display case in my unfinished basement that nobody except myself ever sees, oh the humanity......

      Hey everyone, I completed another one Yesterday. Some more orange... on a completely different model. She reminded me of Red Sonja so I decided to paint her hair fiery red.
      This is 02759, Dena the Barbarian sculpted by Dennis Mize.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      The Gravestone of Protection 77539 was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and the Shrine is a 3d print by Aleda at Gothic Things.

      So I found these guys at the last NEMPA paint day a I attended a few years back, and decided to paint them up...
      I have many other orcs from this line, but not these guys...
      I even have the Polly S Armor Dark Green paint I used on the others back in High School!
      (I,m class of 1981)
       

      and a close up

       
      So all you Partha lovers chime in with comments and critiques!
