While visiting my brother, he rounded up all his old painted minis and let me borrow the box of them to share on the blog.
This is a set of dungeon dressing furniture. I was thinking of painting up a few of these an primed them in grey. But my ‘needs paint’ pile is starting to grow, so I need to focus on my primary projects first.
As you can see, most all of it was unpainted. With the exception of the mirror, which was used to represent a ‘mirror monster’ for a dungeon crawler that we made.
I forgot to jot down the specifics on these, and after much searching online, came up pretty fruitless. I know that they are Ral Partha minis, and are similar to this set which appears in the 1983 Ral Partha catalog:
So probably somewhere around the same time.
My brother has the Wizard mini from that pic. Possibly the demon. I didn’t see an open chest. I was able to find images of the “Wizard’s Table” online, but I’m not sure where those and the brazier or pile of gold come from. It might have been two different packs or maybe there was a different room pack that included all of these. If anyone happens to find something, I’d gladly post it here.
Tangent – Weapon Rack?
I think I exhausted most of my tangents for the time being. I have been looking to collect a few dungeon furniture pieces to maybe try out our old dungeon crawler once again. Oddly, I haven’t been able to find a decent weapons rack miniature. Has anyone happened to see one?
Also, if you have a suggestion for a tangent related to old minis vs new, feel free to recommend something in the comments! 🙂
