I really like this sculpt and how you painted it. Is it still available for purchase somewhere?

Good morning Great Khan Artist!

yes, you can get it from Iron Wind Metals with the code DF-607.

It's a very detailed model, I love the way the minerals and the plants "roots" come together to form the elemental. You have done an excellent job of highlighting the various elements.

Yeah, it is very detailed.  Initially it was very intimidating, because I thought with all that detail, it was going to be really hard to paint, but once I established the colors I was going to use for the roots, that issue kind of disappeared and it went rather smoothly.

Really beautiful realization of this sculpt! The wonderful use of blue gems and grey stone (unliving) with the organic wood and vines - perfect!

Thank you Iridil!  He actually ended up very fun to paint and I think he turned out okay!

I agree with KruleBear; the blue gemstones was a great choice. :winkthumbs:

Thank you Chaoswolf! Hopefully it was enough contrast without being too much!

Strange fellow, I like it!

The earthy tones are spot on!


Thank you Glitterwolf!


I painted one of the lesser earth elementals years ago, where I tried doing something similar with lots of different earth tones:


Lesser Elementals


Going back to this post, I didn't realize that it was as far back as 2006 when I painted it!

Very nice paint job!


Some of the Ral Partha had some weird poses - looks like John Travolta modelled for the sculpt. :lol:

Thank you very much!


with this one, it came in two pieces, the hammer/axe hand was a separate piece.  The majority of Partha miniatures are single pieces, at least the man-sized ones.  This one is pretty large, probably 3-3.5 inches.

      It only took me 35+ years to paint these....
      Somewhere, in a box, are the tiny goblins which are the riders to these wolves. Paint job inspired by 72moonglum (mine are a rather poor second to the original I am afraid). https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64325-ral-partha-goblin-imp-wolf-riders-kind-of-pic-heavy/
      I iincluded a shot with the Reaper Warg to give you an idea how small these fellows are. More wolves for the forest! And I finally painted them - wow

      Hello all you Reapervellians,
      So I had these figures sitting around and primed for probably about two or three years, and then while trying to start up another project, I ended up grabbing these.
      These are four new figures, sculpted by Dave Summers, famous for his Darksword anthropomorphic miniatures as well as decades of other finely sculpted figures, that he sculpted for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars game in 2016, associated with a Kickstarter if I recall correctly, and then a rather old figure, the female dwarf, who was sculpted by Dennis Mize back in I think 1977-1978.
      Nowadays of course, figures are a lot larger, but Dave Summers sculpted these four new dwarves to that old school 25 millimeter scale, which means they are pretty petite. If I remember afterwards I'll snap some kind of comparison photo with some common item. I always forget to do that for some reason.
      Anyhoos, here they are:

      and here's the lady dwarf. I separated her out because I actually have an older version that I did of her years ago as a gift for somebody, and wanted to show it as a comparison.
      Here's the one I just painted:

      and here she is probably already five or six years earlier:

      I had her on a much larger base in the original version.
      Anyhow, that's all for today folks, enjoy at your leisure!

      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.
