Shadowrun Female Rigger with Pistol, Ral Partha, sculpted by Jim Johnson


Recommended Posts

Yes, i think that's everyone's first thought... Wow, she has a long face.  ::P:

That said, good use of color and subtle shading.  it has a nice palette range while using colors a person would actually wear... and that's tough on a 25-28 mm scale!  Usually you have to exaggerate colors to make things stand out, but you pulled this off nicely.

Thanks GBPRime!

Can't escape that long face, but all I could do was try to paint her as nicely as possible so that people wouldn't say "Long face AND sucky paint job".  That would have been a bad combination!

I love the color choices on her and the striped shirt. Excellent work on the face, the sheepskin lining and helmet in particular stand out to me.

Thanks Iridil, I really actually like the figure and how she was dressed.  I made that striped shirt thinking of those Russian sailor shirts, but of course those are tons of nice blue stripes, I could only fit four in that itty bitty space of her shirt.

Very good lines on the shirt and great shadowing on the face and helmet! 
I think she looks Elfy and Pulp, and that's a great combination I don't see nearly often enough. Good work on a very distinctive sculpt.

Thank you Rigel! I think she looks nice and elfy, to that point when she takes off that goofy helmet her big pointy ears pop out!

      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!
