Happy New Year to All!
This is my first post in a while! With the holidays, work and more, it’s been the usual hectic season. This year I hope to track my painting production on this blog as well.
I was happy to get my Ral Partha Kickstarter from Iron Winds Metals in late December – and is it impressive!
Added up, it’s about 254 miniatures. For the vast majority of these figures, they are great old (1978-1986) Ral Partha figures that are great to see again!
This is the list of all I got – it came in the form of the Orc & Goblin Legion, and some additional figures:
25-427: Orc & Goblin Legion: 218 miniatures total: 24 Goblin Archers (8 of each sculpt); 36 Lesser Goblins (12 of each sculpt); 48 Goblin Shock Troops (16 of each sculpt); 72 Orc Warriors (18 of each sculpt); 18 Wolf Riders (6 of each sculpt); 1 Orc General; 1 Orc Battle Standard Bearer; 1 Orc Mage; 2 Goblin Champions; 2 Goblin Standard Bearers; 3 Orc Champions; 3 Orc Standard Bearers; 3 Orc Musicians; 3 Wyverns; 1 Orc War Machine
SG-06: Briar Rose Cavalry on Giant Bees: Contents: 6 Riders on Giant Bees
SG-11: Dwarf Steam Cannon: 1 Cannon + 3 Crew
Free Gift #5 containing: 1 Wizard, 1 Winged Panther, 1 Armored Halberdier, 1 Armored Crossbowman, 1 Winged Demon
Bonus: 1 Skeleton and 1 Dwarf fighter and a large number of bases.
This will take a while to paint and get ready, but I am looking forward to the challenge. The miniatures were all there (I even got an extra wolf). The quality of the figures is great as you can see from the pictures below.
When I opened the box, I was a bit concerned about inventorying all these, as while they were packed well and by type, it was difficult to see if I got everything. Jacob from Iron Winds Metals came through (thanks Jacob!), sent me the picture guide you see here. This helped me to separate all the types and see what I had. I think that Iron Winds Metals wanted to get these out – but I would suggest that there was labeling on the bags for their next Kickstarter!
Here are some better pictures of the different units below:
The rest of the miniatures were special add-on’s or free gifts:
NOW I NEED TO PAINT THEM! As I do I will of course post here!
