Ral Partha Bard from The Adventurers (98-013f)


Recommended Posts

Continuing with my group of under-represented character classes, I painted up this bard from the Ral Partha set “Female Adventurers”. I’m not sure who the sculptor was; the range was a mix of Mize, Guthrie, and Meier.

I’m trying to use some colors I don’t use as often on these; hence the lavender shirt. 
 

This is a fairly petite little figure. I know @72moonglum would have highlighted the nail polish 😂, but I can’t see that on the table.  How petite, you ask?

Scale creep, anyone?

Good morning Rob! 

 

excellently painted, love the colors you chose! And you’re right, I would have done up her fingernails!  I actually have this figure from the original box back in the eighties and have always wanted to paint her but have just never gotten around to it.  Too many minis, not enough time, and now contemplating Bones 6. I’m pretty sure she’s a Julie Guthrie sculpt, I think that whole box was sculpted by her.

I wasn’t sure about the style; I thought that whole box was Julie Guthrie, too, but the Lost Minis Wiki lists one of them as being a Dennis Mize.  I don’t know what their evidence is.  Looking back, this is the second time I’ve painted that casting; looked better the first time. 😜

I’ve got one more in the hoard, should I wish to try different colors, but some of the rest of 98-013 will be ahead of her in the queue.

Very nice color scheme... particularly great detail work on the face and lute strings.

 

As a former early musician (though viola da gamba rather than lute), strings are important. 😃
