Iron Wind Metals DF-538 Sea Serpent

Recommended Posts

would they all fit on a common 6 inch by 4 inch oval base? It's kind of begging for an ocean scene with Epoxy water effect and you wouldn't lose any pieces that way

 

Love the bright colors you used, looks fantastic

It would be a tight fit...

 

I am not so good at terrain yet.::(:

 

But everyone posts such great threads that I can not help but to improve! I gotta lurk some more on the terrain forum...

 In a straight line, it'd definitely be a bit crowded front-to-back, but if you had it swimming through the water in a somewhat snakelike fashion (since the 4 inch width would give you room to spread them out a bit) it'd look good...

 

I've seen folks do a lot of different stuff with this guy - ditch the second piece altogether, replace it with a plesiosaurus-style hump, add extra middle pieces, slap together multiple head sections to make a hydra... Heck, if you get five or six of this guy and just don't use the head pieces, you could use the bodies and tails as tentacles on a kraken or something.

I've always liked this guy. I bought one back in the old days when it still a Ral Partha figure, and I've painted it twice since then.

 

Great colors on him.

I got min at the Iron Wind Metals table at a con... If I remember correctly, I could have picked more heads, humps and or tails because they were selling them by the weight. I still kick myself for not being greedy and picking up more pieces.

 

Thanks for the Ral Partha clue... I will look in the old catalogues for the sculptor.

 He's still pretty cheap on their online store... They have most of the old Ral Partha figures available, although sometimes you have to dig through a few different sections of their store to find a specific guy, but they keep adding more figures regularly.

 

EDIT:  @Otyugh... Technically, this figure is originally a Citadel figure, designated FF-76 Sea Drake... Ral Partha used to have a licensing deal with Citadel to sell their Fiend Factory line in the US under the Ral Partha Imports label, and added a bunch of their own figures to it as well, but when the deal ended they replaced all the original Citadel figures with new new ones.

(Which is why you don't always find this guy on a list of the RP Fiend Factory figures.)

I have a few of those Citadel licensed minis, they are a totally different style from the regular Ral Partha minis, but still super cool!

I love what you have done with this oldie - it tempts me to track it down and get one! Great touch with the vivid red - makes it look tropical

Gen Con was supposed to be this weekend... The virtual one is just not the same. Life without impromptu gaming, various events, and the dealer's room is the pits.

 

I COULD HAVE GOTTEN SOME NEW MINIS AND SWAG!!!

 

Yes, I will take some cheese with my whine.

I feel you @Otyugh!  First Gen con I haven't been at for at least Sunday in a decade.

 

I really like this mini and you did a great job on it!  Mine is an extra hump or three for the reasons you mentioned above and I think I have away some humps and a tail.

 

Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

A couple of sculptors come to mind when I look at it, but I still don't know who did it...

 

I would look on face-crack, but I abandoned that time and soul-sucking social disaster years ago. It was taking time away from more important things like minis and gaming!

      Hello everyreaperbody! 
      So just recently finished these three go-lucky ladies, a trio of Dancing Girls sculpted quite a while back by Dennis Mize.  Colors were the hardest part fo figure out plus I tried to do some semi-transparent clothing, not sure how well that turned out
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Wanted different hair and different skin tones for each one.  Relatively small figures, almost horrified when I see them so close up, but oh well, such is the curse of this hobby.  I'd painted a set of them maybe 15 years ago.  Don't have any pictures of the original set unfortunately, and then I went and sold them on eBay for I don't remember at all how much.  So I'm glad I got a hold of another copy to do again and keep.
       
      I'll probably be putting them on super-simple bases in the near future, just so they don't fall over.
       
      So anyways, hope you enjoy!

      The Black Widows independent company, part of the mercenary Wolf's Dragoons. In full cheesy-80s-action-movie fashion, they're a Dirty Dozen-style group of criminals and misfits molded by Capt. Natasha Kerensky into one of the most feared fighting forces in known space.

      Fire Lance

       
      Recon Lance

       
      And because these are all canon characters, the pilots' names are marked.

      This is an old Ral Partha stag that I needed the horns from. Now it is a very surprised doe. I picked it up from Iron Wind's bulk metal bin at a convention, but I can't seem to find it online.

      Here's a quick paint up of an old Ral Partha (now by Iron Wind Metals) Shadowrun figure. Nothing special, just something quick to keep my hands busy. But I like her. Scale wise, she's a bit small these days for an Orc character, but since she was on the tall side when produced, she fits in pretty well with the Chronoscope minis I typically use for SR games. I think the top part of her outfit is supposed to be chainmail. But I like to think she's a bit of a hipster orc and just crocheted herself a top to go with her hair.
