The main point of this guy was to force myself to focus heavily on colors I tend to shy away from (specifically, white and yellow). I also experimented with a different type of skin tone. The design on the shield took forever, but I'm happy with the results. Looking back, I can definitely see where I could have taken the highlights further on the armor.
Sorry guys, not too technically advanced, but here is a link to the Ral Partha Legacy's fourth Kickstarter, this time adding elves, dwarves, humans, orcs/goblins and some creatures to the mix. Check it out, you can buy in a wide variety of ways, be if from the individual figure to large armies in bundles and packages. The majority of this was sculpted by Tom Meier, and all the new pieces were sculpted by him as well. Lots of visual images and aid to help you decide what you'd might like to snag. I'm biased as a long time fan of both Partha and Meier, I'm definitely going to grab a good number of individual pieces on this one!
EDIT: Added some photos of the new sculpts from Mr. Meier:
Hello my little Rearperlificos!
so tonight just got finished up and photographed, a male and female fighter in plate armor, sculpted by the enigmatic Jim Johnson (one of those sculptors I know nothing about but has had a hugely prolific career) that he sculpted I think back in the nineties when he did a range of figures for Partha, which were a male and a female version of the same character class. I've already painted up a bunch of these different figures, and these are my most recent ones. I wanted to do red as their breastplates, helmets and grieves with more bronze tones than gold, after seeing Anne Forester working on bronzes in Twitch with the Kickstarter V Centaur. I'n not ver happy how the vertical bronze strip came out on the male fighter, but buh, too lazy to really keep fixing to perfection. Also, this is the second time I took pictures of these figures because there was lots of crud, dust and hair on the figures the first time. I went back and rephotographed them a second time and I still see a few little dust spots even though I knocked a bunch of them off. Anyhoos, here they are for your viewing pleasure:
and being they were originally sold in a blister pack together, here they are in the same photo:
I would usually put them on bases but the gal has a wide base that is a little too big to fit on the one inch base, and I didn't have a slightly larger base sitting around so I just sealed them really good and am going to leave them like that. In any case they just sit in a display case, a display case in my unfinished basement that nobody except myself ever sees, oh the humanity......
So I found these guys at the last NEMPA paint day a I attended a few years back, and decided to paint them up...
I have many other orcs from this line, but not these guys...
I even have the Polly S Armor Dark Green paint I used on the others back in High School!
(I,m class of 1981)
and a close up
So all you Partha lovers chime in with comments and critiques!
o I finished Thregan this morning with a second application of water effect...
Added a few tufts and some Green Turf Blend as well..
So here he is!
No to find the female Thief / Assassin in the pile of lead...
