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!

 

nice elf, and he looks very Thalassian indeed (they're snobs you know ;)

 

I've been buying up and painting the old RP and Gren stuff too. Stuff I could never afford as a kid, better to snatch em up now before they get even more pricey

   Between Iron Wind Metals and Ral Partha Europe, most of the Ral Partha stuff is still readily available, aside from the Official AD&D minis. For Grenadier, the Italian company Mirliton has most of their catalogue.

I had a spurt years ago where I got tons fo Ral Partha and Grenadier stuff off of Ebay, and have gotten more or less what I have wanted from most of their ranges.  A few things still escape me, but I have so much hanging around that I'll never get to paint everything I've already got.

Yup, quite true.  There is also going to be a new company coming out soon, a part of Ral Partha, called Ral Partha Legacy, that will be selling more of the old Partha items.  They are also selling the Chaos Wars figures that were in their previous Kickstarters.  There are a lot of things available, but still some Meier items missing from his classic line Personalities and Things that Go Bump in the Night.

Amazing work, as always...

 

That particular figure is a long-standing favorite of mine.  There were not many left-handed figures out there when he was released in ~1977.

I didn’t even think of that and I’m left handed!

A very masculine Farrah Fawcett look he’s got going on there!

 

 Or Shaun Cassidy at a Ren Faire, lol...

Great work as per usual. I love these old sculpts. I'm glad Iron Winds has kept these alive.

Yeah, I wholeheartedly agree, beautiful sculpts plus little pieces of miniature history!

      Hello again Reaper Message Boardonians!
       
      So here's another piece of old school goodness, a Ral Partha Charging Barbarian, sculpted by Julie Guthrie way back in the delightful eighties.  This one was originally in one of the Partha Boxed sets, 98-015 Bezerkers, and now is sold individually at Iron Wind Metals.
       

       
      Pretty quick to paint as he was unencumbered by too much armor, clothing or general stuff.  My biggest challenge with this fellow was to figure out his hair color.  Blonde eventually won the day.  
       
      Anyhoos, please enjoy!

      Hello guys!
       
      I'm not sure if this is the place to put this and I don't think it's permissible to put links to other web sites, but just as some general information,  Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, that was a company that Tom Meier had founded quite a many years ago after leaving Ral Partha, are once again available, and being cast through a subsidiary company of Ral Partha, called Ral Partha Legacy.  They are working on releasing some classic Partha for their Chaos Wars game, other miniatures that were previously out of production, and of special note, miniatures from Thunderbolt Mountain.  At the moment on their site they have all their 32 mm elves, orcs and goblins, as well as their smaller 25mm Arthurians and a variety of other historical and fantasy miniatures.  Worth checking out, some very nice pieces out there!

      Hi guys and gals, 
       
      So just painted these two, which were pretty simple jobs being they didn't have too many things hanging off of them.  These are bugbears sculpted by Tom Meier, back in 1983.  I had always thought these were odd kind of figures, because my other concept of bugbears at the time were the Monster Manual version as well as the two Grenadier bugbears that were available at the time.  One of my future projects is to paint the Grenadier bugbears as well, plus some more recent Partha bugbears and I think I have somewhere the female bugbear by Reaper that I'd like to paint up.
       
      Anyhoos, these guys have these huge eyes that I really didn't know what to do with.  I thought of one color and not put in any pupils, but then changed my mind.  Hopefully green eyes look okay.  
       

      Anyhoos, enjoy!
