Ral Partha Bugbears sculpted by Tom Meier

Recommended Posts

That's a very interesting and funny model. You did an amazing paint job on it. The face and the eyes are especially well done. The features of their head, big ears and eyes, reminds me of Gollum.

You really did great on those faces - such character! I almost want to meet these guys in a dark dungeon. I bet they'd be a  hoot to drink mead with...

Thanks Metalchaos!  These minis are kind of interesting because they were called Bugbears, but really don't have anything to do with the bugbears from D & D. Their eyes are huge and expressive and there is so much you can do with them.

I'm sure they'd be a blast to hang out with!

This guy is soo goofy of a sculpt - like gollum and a bugbear had a child and they put in wiley coyote's soul.

 

Great job with the eyes and skin tone.

A definite hybrid of happiness!  For their skin, I remember the Monster Manual back in the day talking about yellow or tan skin with brown fur.

Love the mischevious expressions! 

Those huge eyes made it possible to get some personality shining through, a combination of malicious and mischievous...

      And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020!
       
      So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy.
       

       
      His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits.
       
      My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Winter Salutations to you cold weather Reaper ptarmigans!
       
      So I'd mentioned in a previous post how Ral Partha Legacy, a sister company of Iron Wind Metals, has recently opened up and one of their ranges they have acquired is Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures.  So here is one of them a Wood Elf Lady:
       

       
      I really love these miniatures. I'm used to painting Ral Partha stuff, but these are quite a bit different, as the detail is so fine and detailed.  The eyes and some of the jewelry is so small and hard to paint.   Even though they are 30 mm, they are quite realistically proportioned so lots of the details aren't exaggerated.
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy, and if you've got a few moments check out the Ral Partha Legacy page!

      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!
