Ral Partha Shadowrun Female Detective, sculpted by Dave Summers


Recommended Posts

Very nice color on the clothing and the face and hair are awesome like normal.  The hose looks very good as it is, but it is just slightly too dark right on and above the bent knee I think, hose would be stretched most there, and show more of the original skin color.

Thank you Citrine!

thanks for the pantyhose Feedback! I did try to do a really thin layer of white where I thought there might be some highlights, but didn’t really hit that area. It’s a continuous learning process.  I want to keep working on these semi-transparent fabrics, so this is just another learning step!

She looks really nice - I like the subdued busnissy coloring to her clothing and the bluish grey says 80s to me. The pantyhose are great but agree with Citrine - having worn them many moons ago the inherent flesh color comes through more on the knees and tops of thighs where the fabric is stretched - but that's picking nits on a good paintjob for sure.

Thank iridios another pantyhose opinion!  With your and Citrine’s critiques, I can certainly see where I should have put more highlights for these.  It will be a good lesson for my next pantyhose or just transparent fabric in general, thanks again to both of you!

I love it.
Especially how you painted the pantyhose. Did you paint them using glazes or just mixed in some greys into your skin palette?

Thank you much DragonWyrm!

I actually painted her legs totally like I would have without pantyhose, then did some washes where the pantyhose was on her legs,, first cloudy grey,, then storm grey, then dark elf shadow, then black. At the end I tried to do some light white highlights, that don’t seem to have worked out too well.

      And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion,
       
      So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon.  This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next.  This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties.  Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones.  The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue.  I wanted to originally paint them green to match the crystal in the Shaman's staff, but I didn't think there would be enough contrast between the grass/moss around the stones.
       

       
      The little iguana familiar will be next!
       
      Enjoy!

      Hello everyone, here is a model from the early 80s. Ral Partha 02-912, Giant Rat sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I placed it on a 20mm base and painted in with Reaper MSP paint.

      Good morning my Reapertonians!
       
      So recently I've been not only just doing individual figures, but also "sets", figured belonging or previously belonging to blister packs and today is no exception.
       
      I just finished painting a set of Ral Partha Town Guards, sculpted back in the 90's I think by Jim Johnson.  As I go through a lot of my minis, it's impressive of what a large library of work Mr. Johnson has created.   All this and I know virtually nothing about the guy.
       
      Anyhoos, being that these are town guards from the same town, I wanted them to all have a similar color schemes so all their shirts got purple amethyst to start out with and their pants are red.  I did want to make sure they all got unique skin tones however, as not to make them too uniform and boring. After seeing these all close up with the merciless camera lens, I see tons of errors that were impossible to pick up with my naked and bespectacled eye, and even with my nerd goggles, I didn't really see certain issues. But alas, once I get to the point of ending, very small chance that I'll be going back to update.  
       
      As of yet, I haven't put them on bases, but will probably do so in the near future so they don't fall over.  The redhead with the spear is especially a little top-heavy.

       
      Derek had mentioned in a post about a previous lady giant that I needed to make sure I hit my metals with white.  I always do so, but I'm hoping that these pictures can reflect it visually a little bit more.  Tried not to be overly heavy-handed with white but at least make sure it got in there to be properly represented. 
       
      And for the spearman's shield on his back, I really had no idea or inspiration of what to do, so I just painted on some white stripes.  Not at all very exciting, but I couldn't invent anything that exciting.
       
      So there you have them, my last five little mini-babies, enjoy!

      Hello all those in Reaperdom!
       
      So just finished this figure last night and just got him photographed, an Earth Elemental Lord, sculpted by Jim Johnson. Tried to keep him mostly in earth tones because he's an Earth Elemental Lord:
       

       

       
      His original blister came with a large earth elemental and a little elemental lizard. Going to be painting those in the near future.
       
      Enjoy!

      Good evening all you fine Reaper acolytes!
       
      So this evening I've finished another grand old Partha classic, sculpted by the immortal Julie Guthrie, a Sorceress Casting Spell.  As always, couldn't easily choose colors, but this is what I came up with:
       

       
      The only problem I really had was her other eye, which just couldn't be reached with a brush, so this is with a close up, how it came out:
       

       
      Sometimes it's just rough getting a brush in such an itty bitty space.  So I did what I could.  Anyway hope you all enjoy!
