Thunderbolt Mountain figures available again

Recommended Posts

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!

That's great news since they are too nice not to be available.   I'm not sure I'd call those elves 32mm though. 

30 maybe? They're a lot bigger than his old school stuff!

Man, I'm sooooo happy about this. 

The miniature gods have definitely smiled up on us!

 Any word on the 54mm stuff/larger dioramas?

 

 

I think the dioramas and dragons may be in the future but don’t know about the larger pieces.

Before Tom Meier shut down, I got a set of the ballerina fairy princess infantry squad (and a few more things).

What else would one need?

DH has some of the larger, older vignettes and he's lost pieces.  I would love to one day be able to replace what's missing so he can paint them.

And these ballerinas, amongst others, are available again on the Ral Parthia Legacy site!

I hope the Teddy Bear Picnic becomes available again.  I own it, but since it is an awesome set, it would be very sad if it is lost to time.

I’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing them sooner or later! It’s available as well, you only have to order it!

      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!

      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!
