Known for its deathgaze and horrific flatulence, it was universally feared by adventurers.

 

But, if some brave adventurers would gather milk, the local creameries would produce Death cheese.

I was surfing through some posts and saw the catoplebas mentioned, so I thought that someone might enjoy seeing one.

The Catoplebas is a fun monster to toss into the middle of a campaign to potentially break up the hack 'n slash. It is amusing the looks on the player's faces when a merchant or local farmer gives them a milk the catoplebas quest.

I may have to do this.  My group fluxes between role playing stagnation (they want to talk and explore, which is good but they tend to get bogged down in the minutia) and murderhobo syndrome (they get new weapons/spells and the answer to everything is a sharp instrument)  I try to keep them balanced but quests like this are perfect *(what do you mean we have to leave the vicious beast alive!!!)*  thanks for the suggestion!

Other good distractions from the stab and loot Monty Haul groove the players tend to sink into is an Abyssal Carnage-val conveniently accessed though a random dungeon door/portal... A Robert Aspirin-ish Deevil (Mything, Inc. reference) hawking a wheel of fate is rather amusing, with chances of gender bending, stat changes, gold, magic goodies, etc.

      Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
       
      Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure.    I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
       

       
      my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
       
      I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.  
       
      I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
       
      Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!

      Hello all you Reapertoniks!
       
      Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?
       

       
      Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!

      Hello Reapervites!
      So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.
       
      With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:
       

       
      Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!
       
      So enjoy!

      Hello all you Reaperlodytes!
       
      Continuing the work on some old school goodness, more Ral Partha elves from 1976 I think:
       

       
      These are all wood elves, and I've got some more coming, so I'm trying to get them painted in browns, yellows, oranges and greens.
       
      These are their two spearmen.
       
      Just like the Elven Princess, back in the pre-history of miniatures.  Super straight forward, a little awkward, amazing to compare these to Tom Meier's more recent figures!

      Good evening Reaperologists!
       
      So tonight taking a journey back to the past in the late seventies when Ral Partha was in its infancy, here is a Ral Partha Elven Princess, sculpted by Tom Meier.  A simple miniature from a simple time, it shows how far miniature sculpting has come over the years with an early Meier sculpt. Take this one an compare it to his more contemporary works, from Dark Sword Miniatures for example:
       

       
      More oldies coming soon!
