The Thieves Guild, Ral Partha, Sculpted by Dennis Mize

Recommended Posts

Love them!

 

The colours are silky smooth and contrast well, and your NMM is really nice.  I especially like the first guy in the yellow cloak, the paint job is striking!

Thank you very much! I think he’s the guild master!

Definitely a bunch of pantless wonders! I figure it’s probably warm where they live.

I think the thief in purple with the throwing dagger is absolutely awesome!

He reminds me of Errol Flynn, I can see him crashing through a rooftop window into a party where the rich are dancing, swooping the golden plates off the table while giving the Lady of the House such a dashing smile she faints, making his getaway throwing a dagger that just misses the Lord, a note attached that said: Regards to your lovely daughter!

And the girl is stunning, she is a very good thief, she just stole my heart.:wub:

 

The guild master, excellent paint job, but he's not afraid to reveal himself with those colours is he?

He's proud of his profession and I guess he bribed the guards so he can wander about town in that outfit without getting arrrested.

the guy in purple has been in Covid quarantine for too long.  He's forgotten that you are not supposed to go  out in public in just your bathrobe!

Great job on these!  I love the yellow/black cloak but the faces on all of them are so well done.  this is a great set!

I really like this set, precisely because they are all unique, but have some sort of uniformity to make them feel like they work together or belong together.

 

With them I figured I could either do really deep, somber colors, or make them a bit more noticeable, so I chose the latter. I figure the Guild Master is a big enough bigwig in town to not have to actually skulk around, like you say he's got everybody paid off and doesn't really have to worry much about anything. 

 

The girl is the only one whose color scheme I've known since the moment I saw her. The other two came to being much later.

Yeah, thank baby Buddha he has those leather strips dangling in front of his own dangly parts!

Yes, it's a really neat set that I've wanted to paint for a long time, but they just lingered on my paint desk for years! It's usually hard for me to get inspired enough to paint a whole set, but I was able to finish all three of theses guys in about two weeks and even worked on them all together.

Another wonderful classic set - I really like the guildmaster - the colors are so wonderful with the cloak -  the back reads as heavy and leathery, a little worn with that rich warm velvety inside - I think he's wrapped that around him to pull off some skullduggery a few times....

What a delightfully flamboyant trio! Great work, as always. I particularly like the moustachioed gentleman's facial expression—you really nailed it.

Great paint job on all three! Not a fan of the set though. They're all in almost the exact same stance, each with their right hand on sword and their left on a dagger.

Alright, the one with the mustache is pretty cool. Lots of character to that fella. He also looks like he's about to attack, instead of posing. :winkthumbs:

Absolutely love the red leather on the female in the trio, the other 2 are great too, but she steals the show!

Thank you Iridil, yes, I'm pretty sure he's been skulldigging now and again (skulldugging?)...

I just painted it up, the real credit goes to Dennis Mize who sculpted that teeny little moustache!

Their clothes are so over the top that I can't help but love them. ::D:

Yes, it's nice to know out there that there's a thieves' guild where pants are optional.

Thanks CorallineAlgae!  The set itself I really like a bunch, but you do have kind of a valid point about poses.  I haven't looked on the bottom of these to know when they were sculpted, but it was the early nineties/late eighties, and lots of sculpts in the name of casting efficiency were created with these open kind of flat-planed stances. I'd say try to enjoy them individually instead of judging them as a set.

The gal is my favorite as well, and she was really the only one of the three whose color scheme, leather, skin and hair, I had envisioned before I started painting them.

Great work on all of these, I love all of them.  One of my first thoughts was "old minis, of course the female is over-sexualized," but then I saw the purple guy in his ultra-short bathrobe-tunic that doesn't even close and that kind of made it okay.  It made me laugh at least!  And yeah, his sword is super long for a thief!

      Hello all you fine purveyors or all things Reaper and miniature related!
       
      So here this evening, I'm posting up a miniature sculpted by Dennis Mize back in 1989 (I actually looked at the bottom before adhering him on to his base) and you may or may not recognize him.  
       
      He's a more "realistic" version of a certain comic book classic, Groo the Wanderer, officially named in the Iron Wind Metal Site as a Brainless Barbarian:
       

       
      In case you've never actually met him, here is what he looks like in the two-dimensional world:
       

       
      Super-fun mini to paint, pretty straightforward, the only issue that I had created in my mind was painting his tunic orange, kind of to match his comic book coloring, but in the end it was a bit easier than I thought.  I think it was also way back in the day that maybe Dark Horse Miniatures made cartoon versions of him as miniatures.  I would one day love to snag some of those, but that will be for another Ebay adventure I'm sure. 
       
      So a double blast to the past, both in comic book and miniature form, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reaper brethren,
       
      So some more Shadowrun tonight, a Female Rigger with Pistol, sculpted by Jim Johnson, that enigmatic sculptor of yore.  I ended up really liking this figure, just general fun, and when I saw her shirt and coat, it reminded me a little bit of a Russian sailor, so tried some stripes on the t-shirt and some kind of dark blue peacoat.  I was really struggling to figure out what color I wanted her boots to be and almost made them bright yellow, but then calmed down and went for a redstone shadow base color.  I of course see all my imperfections and dots of dust but it seems that for the most part, once I've gotten to that part of taking pictures, unless I see something really gawdawful, I'm just not going to do any repainting or touching up.  So here she is in all her lilac haired glory:
       

       
      I took a lot of different angles because she's one of those not so flat figures, where just a front and back seem to be enough. As always, metals are torture, but if you don't keep trying to paint something you'll never get better, so just paint and paint again.
       
      So, enjoy!

      Good evening all you Reaper hooligans!
       
      So another figure finished, this time a Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers, probably latter eighties to early nineties.  Kind of difficult with the eyes because they were small little balls, but otherwise, pretty okay with how she turned out. Gun a little too blue, but probably won't ever fix that I'm guessing.  I kind of like this figure because she's from their Shadowrun line, but she could easily be any normal, modern detective gal. I tried to do very a mild colored blouse, pinkish, with a grey skirt and jacket.  This is also the first time I've worked on pantyhose, so let me know what you guys think. It was after painting her legs as normal skin color, I did some washes of first storm grey, then Dark elf skin shadow, and then finally black.
       

       
      Anyhow, let me know what y ou think about the pantyhose and hope you enjoy!

      Good morning Reapermaniacs,
       
      So here's one I've had painted for about a week or so but have never just gotten around to sit down at my normal computer to post him.
       
      This one is one I've actually had for a long time, and it's an old lead version back from the seventies.  I had to at one point I think scrape off some paint. I had another newer version of him, but the detail was pretty soft so ended up painting up the original, whose details were so much more nice and crisp.
       
      And being he was a "high" elf, I wanted him to have some nice light colors, no greens and browns.
       
      Anyhoos, here he is:
       

       
      I've been on a recent kick painting these older miniatures, even old by Partha standards (pre-eighties).  I think I'm going to keep painting them, putting them into my normal mix of newer, old Partha figures.  In any case, hope you like them!
