Ral Partha Dragon, sculpted by Dennis Mize, kind of pic heavy

Recommended Posts

He's so, well kind of cute.... I have never seen this one before. I really like the choice of the grays on the back - it emphasizes his lizardyness. And his eyes have a wonderful glow!

Very well done!

 

I love this sculpt the long neck reminds me of a plesiosaurus.

As for small and big dragons, I'm actually getting a bit fed up with the bigger, bigger no..bigger dragons lately.

Thank you Iridil! He’s a really old model, I think out of Dennis Mize’s “Children of the Night” range. You can still get him on Iron Wind’s web site.

I got Argent from the last Kickstarter and I didn’t realize how massive he was. I don’t know if I’d ever have the patience to paint him up. In this Kickstarter I put in a goodly chunk of change but I don’t think I’ll be getting any dragons. I’ve got so many unpainted smaller dragons at home already I may never get to.

Beautiful job. Love the colors and especially the face and above all those amazing eyes!

Thanks zoroaster100!   The eyes were nice to do because they were so big (in comparison to a normal-sized  Ral Partha figure).

Reminds me of the copper belly snakes we used to catch when I was a little kid in Michigan. Great job!

That's a very nice color combination!

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      this is one of those miniatures that has sat on my shelf of shame for far too many years (or decades even!).  I got this as a used mini over 20 years ago which a paintjob that was actually flaking off the miniature.  In addition I was missing a few parts, namely one leg and a wing bone.  So I stripped the mini and put it in a baggy with the rest of my dragons.
       
      and time passed....
       
      about 4 months ago I opened up an unrelated box containing a keep wall from Games Workshop and there, lying in the box are the old pieces to the Bridge of Sorrows.  I looked it over and I decided its time had come:  I had some new painting skills and tricks to experiment with and the mini itself was just too iconic to be left lying forgotten in a box where no one would see it.  With that I started cleaning up the mini and seeing what was left and what I could do with the mini.
       
      I like the idea that drakes are a usually a little plainer than dragons, being occasionally eaten by said dragons, I decided I wanted the body to be a brown and started as such.  However, that quickly got boring and I thought, 'what if he had some mating plumage and his wings brightened when that time of the year came around.  Of course to woo the ladies he would need some really nice present, and what could be more like chocolates to a Wyvern than a damsel in distress!  so with the dragon started it was time to move on to the rest of the diorama. 
       
      The wizard is done pretty typically, using a shade from dark to light which seems to work very well for me, but the centaur was a challenge.  I went to start painting his armor using metallic and the miniature was just too small to let any sort of variation in the metallic show through.  So I decided to try NMM and this time it worked!  I really could not be more pleased with how the centaurs armor came out, looking for all the world like bare metal that has seen a number of battles but has not been allowed to rust but has lost some of that factory polish and shine. (if you cant tell i am really proud of that armor!)
       
      So with that history, here are the results!  I hope you like what you see.  This is a really excellent model and one of the most dynamic set pieces I have.  The plinth the piece rests on is a piece of black palm I got in a grab bag of wood and I chose it because the surface looks like muddy water and does a good job of making the bridge look like its just hanging there.
       
      Enjoy!

      My secret Sophie is winging its way to its recipient as I write this and may even arrive before the new year!
       
      I have been practicing a technique shown to me by @Mocha and have produced. Number of these this year so its only fitting that my SS be one of them.
       
      The present is actually a 6 sided die from dice jail for too many 1's so for its trouble it has been incarcerated in greenstuff wrapping paper! 
       
      I modified Rocky a little bit to flatten his wings to more of a waiting position. 
       
      As for the story, Rocky has been asked to wait for his present and he intends to make sure it does not get away!  
       
      I enjoyed making the little bow much more than I should have but it was a lot of fun.  The Rocky series is great.  The eyes are just large enough to get some real detail into without overwhelming the mini and ever part of the mini is accessible to paint!  
       
      I hope his recipient likes him and that he reminds everyone that good things will come with a little bit of patience
