Ral Partha Adventuress, sculpted by Tom Meier

Recommended Posts

Whoa, that's a beautiful old sculpt! Great job painting her, especially her face and white dress.

I also like the way the gravel looks like a mix of light and dark stones. It's an unusual place to have that kind of contrast. Really cool. :winkthumbs:

Really lovely work on her face, and I like the color on her cloak.  You brought out the best in this figure.

Thank you CorallineAlgae!

For the gravel, I just glue down corn meal, and then give it coat of earth brown, then a dark shadow and a dark elf shadow wash. After that I highlight it with Terran Khaki, creamy ivory and finally white.

She's awesome indeed, the bright dress is a good choice.

 

Thanks Glitterwolf, a bit of contrast with her boots and cloak.

Thanks Inarah, it actually helped that I only had to paint one eye!

I love it too.  The cloak looks fantastic.  I also love the little white dot on the lower lip, something I did myself for the first time on my most recent mini (succubus), inspired by one of yours!  The miniature is only two years younger than me!

She is beautiful - especially the face - wonderful tones and the cheekbone.... Perfect colors

Thank you Iridil!

I’m glad you could use the little white dot, always a nice little detail!

 

i wish I could say the same, but I’m about eight years older than this dainty little lady!

Lovely work on an old sculpt. The face (eyes, lip reflections) is very good. The whites are also well rendered. I enjoy the contrast between cloak inside and outside, too.

 

Overall awesome work. I have to admit I am amazed Tom Meier didn't start out with A-grade sculpts, but I guess even masters develop over time.

Everybody has a beginning, and if I understand correctly from some videos I've seen, Tom Meier started out sculpting in his teen-age years, grabbing green stuff pretty much by accident.  That was in the seventies, so now years later, when you look at his stuff, I usually get happily blown away. I always love checking out his news stuff on Dark Sword for example, periodically batches of his minis show up there.

Don't know if you would have seen this video or not yet?

      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!

      After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth.  I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent.  Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years.  So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s.  Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
       
      So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?

      Good evening, morning or afternoon, depending where you are and wen you read this!
       
      So my last three miniatures that I just finished.  Being they are a set of three and I wanted to photograph them together, I didn't base them, but just painted their bases with a weathered stone, without any elaboration. I might stick them on bases later and do a little bit more to them, but that might be a bit in the future. If I do, it's so I can handle them without worrying the paint might rub off.  They are a little bit wide the bases, so they probably won't fit on 32 mm bases, but the next size up.
       
      Anyhoos, here they are:
       

       
      and their little three-person guild together:
       

       
      I wish Mize would have sculpted up a bigger guild, so I just keep painting more of his rogues!
      Kind of fun too that these guys all have humungous swords, I'm hoping they are light and well-balanced!
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!
