I had a day off yesterday and wanted to get some work done toward staging an Original D&D game sometime “soon”. I’m working on a handful of potential PCs, but wanted to get a couple of smaller monsters done. These have all been sitting around in primer for a long time and I’m tired of looking at them. So…drybrush the heck out of them and call it a day.

The figures are all Ral Partha, two trolls (01-063), three skeletons (01-046), two wraiths (01-030), and a small carnosaur (13-004, an erythrosuchus to be exact).

      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:
       
      the female:

       
      The male:
       

       
      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......

      Let's get meta!!
       
      "Now where were we...let's see. Last session you had crashed Miss Minver's jalopy in the cemetery in your attempt to stop the cult. The Professor's apotropaic rituals and Xiufang's first-aid skills kept you alive while Sirhan's Vickers gun and Lady Rutherford's etheric disruptor devastated the cultists--but not before the high priest's chanting reached a crescendo! An awful rift forms in the fabric of reality, swirling with colors beyond human description--and from it, with a horrible squelching sound and a smell like an electrical fire in an aquarium, a forest of loathsome ichor-slicked tendrils protrude, flailing hungrily towards you! Roll for Sanity!"
       

       
      50231 is brilliant, containing three flavors of tabletop geek. These are wonderful sculpts, from the dice bag on the trim GM to the soda in the large gamer's meaty hand to the young lady's minifig case. I feel like I know these people already.

      A furnished basement, much like many others. Shelves of books and trinkets on the wall, a table with a map and several figurines atop it. BUT! this basement is about to become an escape to other, weirder, more adventurous realities!

      You know the Nerd from 50091 will be here, maybe the Chick too. Not-Velma most definitely would roll some polyhedral dice.

       

       
      When the gang's all present, we can begin!

       
      Perhaps on an alternate week, another game:

      "The scent of mildew and rock dust is heavy in the air, and the sound of dripping water echoes from somewhere nearby. You would guess Saraneth's sorcerous witch-light, glinting off crystals the size of tree trunks, is the first illumination these caverns have seen since they were formed in the primeval chaos. --Liliander, your elven senses pick up faint movement from beyond this cluster of stalactites--a dark-dwarf ambuscade! Between Red Serris's sword and Ulma's bombs, this shouldn't be much trouble. ...But wait! Vistaril, as the reverberations of your thunderwave subside, they are answered by another...deeper...rumble--coming from below! Everyone make a Dexterity save!"

      Let's take a bow, nerd to fellow nerd.

      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!
