Ral Partha Female Captive II

Recommended Posts

Hi one and all under the joyous Reaper spell!

 

So I'm not sure who the sculptor is on this one but she's one of a set of three figures with I think some loot bags. The other two guys are some brigands that I imagine turned her in to this female captive instead of just being the run of the mill female. She's kind of kneeling in a pile of random bones and stones. Fun little figure to paint, hope you guys enjoy:

Great job. I think I actually have this somewhere, may have to pull it out and take a look at it. 

If you had her in the blister, then maybe I'd be able to figure out who sculpted her. Maybe Jeff Grace way back when...?

Good job, her face is excellent.

Love that you were able to paint the little buttons on her shirt.

Unfortunately no, like most of my Ral Partha stuff I got it from a bin of random minis from the IWM booth at a convention.

Iron Wind Metals still has this figure available.

 DF-621 Female Captive II  for $4.25, but they don't list the sculptor anywhere I can find.

So this link takes me to the Lost Mini Wiki where the actual set is, but it doesn’t give the sculptor’s name.

Yeah, even though a number of my minis came in their original packages, I always rip them open in about 99.8% of the time. I’ve got very few “mint in package”.

Thank you Glitterwolf, the button on the bottom I had to be a little creative with, as it wasn’t very well defined.

Absolutely spot on with the face - and the skirt color makes it very 80s for me... very shadowrun

Great work, love the way you painted the skin. 

Thanks very much! The base coat was tanned highlights and then worked up and down from there

      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!

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.

      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!

      Hello again Reaperlings!
       
      So here is the other figure I finished this morning from their Shadowrun Range, a Jim Johnson Female Bounty Hunter with Machine Gun.
       
      With this gal, hard to decide on colors. Do I go strictly drab and military greens and browns or do I add some color into it? I opted for color:
       

       
      I'm hoping/guessing that she's got some kind of radio/cell phone/walkie talkie in her other hand, but hard to know for sure. I think Shadowrun probably had a bunch of different technologies, not at all familiar with the game, but really do like the figures.  
       
      Once again, enjoy, hope you like!
