Looking at the miniature again.....

Was rocker Pat Benatar the model for Kitiara?

She has the same, "Hey, I'm not a lesbian even if I look this way!" thing going on.

If you look very closely you can see the figure is carrying a notched lipstick case.

I noticed earlier that someone here asked about starting a possible sub-forum with prices and pictures of the entire AD&D Partha miniatures line.

I've been dabbling with an archive site like that of my own, but would be willing to take on an Acaeum subweb. Is there any interest in that still, at this point? I know there plenty of people here who might help (fingers crossed!)

I tried emailing Foul about it about two months ago, but got no reply.

If he's willing to let me tackle it, I'm up for it! With some input from the serious 11-series collectors here, of course.

I can help with pictures of loose miniatures.  I have all the 11- series Ral Partha AD&D figures in loose and (at the moment unpainted) condition.

I would help with that, I have been losely tracking the entire 11-series line for a few years or so (nothing formal though) and I have almost a complete collection as well (missing one) :)

I started with a picture reference site, but never finished it. I only collect the monsters, Council of Wyrms and Ravenloft subseries (and the miniatures that came with the 'Player Pack' cases).

Mix of painted miniatures, miniatures in blisters and a splash screen for missing miniatures. Still looking for 11-409 Orcs, 11-420 Gnolls (one of the three, my blister came with duplicates), 1-422, 11-423, 11-527, 11-528. Others marked as wanted , are now acquired.

Only pictures of unpainted miniatures, still in blister. Painted ones are not yet up. Still looking for the gypsy dancers 11-110.

404 Not Found

Still missing Blue, Copper, Brass and Sapphire - due to the prices these fetch I'll probably no longer will try to buy these.

404 Not Found

I have some of the box sets (Ravenloft, Red Dragon, Lord Soth's Charge, Dragonlance Heros, Dragonlance Villains, Dracolich and Powers of Conflict and the Monsters Box :
404 Not Found)

Feel free to use these pictures if they might be usefull - would be nice to see my name credited though.

Thanks, guys! I appreciate the interest and the offers of help. I'll email Foul again to see if I can get his approval - hopefully he'll respond a second time.

In the meantime, I started putting something together, since I haven't heard from him, but I'd gladly redo every bit of it as a true Acaeum subweb.

http://www.centerstagerpgs.com (click on Ral Partha archive)

It's still very heavily under construction, as I was planning on spending my week off after the new year wrapping it up. Also, if any of you want to volunteer with pricing - thanks Blackmoor - that would be great. If any of you provide scans of unpainted minis, etc., whether it's on an Acaeum subweb or my own archive pages I will certainly give everyone the credit which they are due.

Thanks again!

I probably have a few catalogs.  If you are missing any of those I can get you some cover scans or picture scans.  I have the Ral Partha 1993, 1994, 1997, and 2000 (I have an extra copy of this one) catalogs and a 1984 Rafm catalog that lists some Ral Partha stuff.

Interestingly enough, in looking through these, there is a note with the 1997 catalog that their license with TSR was to expire Dec 31, 1996 but was extended until June 30, 1997 and they were allowed to sell off existing inventory until Dec 21, 1997.

Thanks, Mars. I appreciate it! And to all of you that have volunteered to help out in one way or another, keep your fingers crossed for me. I'll be sending off my proposal to FoulFoot this weekend.

Just know Foul may not respond right away, sometimes a couple weeks it's been when I've sent some question.

Thanks, Shane. I'll keep everyone updated on what I find out as soon as I get a reply from Foul.

That's a great start CSH, that's gonna be impressive once completed.

I'd be willing to help with photos, my blister collection has been halved so what I have left are mostly commons, but I have about 75 of the 11-series figures painted if you would like to use them in the painted section.

Cheers

Thanks for the compliment! Although I would really like to do a Ral Partha subweb, I plan to continue with my own archive, too - so either way, hopefully there will be a "comprehensive" resource of Ral Partha 11 series figures available soon. I know Stuff of Legends has been the "default" database for some time, but many of their items are missing pictures and there is no price guide OR gallery of painted figures there.

That being said, whether this archive becomes a subweb or just an archive I maintain, those of you who wish to help can contribute in any of the following ways:

1) I need GOOD pictures of all the 11-series figures. Some of the images of the unpainted figures are very good catalog scans, while others, not so much. If you feel ambitious, and are willing to photograph your unpainted minis (with a black background, preferably, like the Planescape mini pics in the subforum), that would be incredible! I will give credit on the site (or subweb!) to anyone who contributes said pictures. You can PM me and I'll give you my email address.

2) Painted mini pictures. PLEASE make sure they're of the highest possible standard. I can't paint worth a lick myself, but I am a sucker for a beautifully painted miniature. The painted pictures of each mini need to be of a very high quality.

3) I need four people (I was originally thinking of maybe Ekim Toor, Blackmoor, FrankFromGermany and myself...should any of the above be willing) to submit their suggested "value" for each mini - the first value should be for the figure "loose" and "unprimed" while the second should be for the miniature new in blister. I will average the values from all the collectors, and will post that as the "suggested" value on the site.

That being said, I appreciate all the comments and suggestions. While I certainly don't want to draw ANYONE away from the Acaeum (you all know I love this site too!) please feel free to start the proverbial ball rolling on the Ral Partha archive forums at http://www.centerstagerpgs.com. If the site is approved as a subweb, I will move the forums "over" to the Acaeum at that point.

Thanks - and hope to hear from all of you soon!

Does anyone have any high-quality images - from the Partha catalogs and otherwise - of the 11 series line? If so, I would be grateful to have them and will credit you with providing the pictures.

Please send them to [email protected] with PARTHA PICS in the subject line.

Thanks in advance - and I appreciate everyone's help!

I'm working on some painted pics, I want them to be just right so I'm doing a little experimenting.

I just listed a few on ebay for anyone who's still collecting.

I got a large store of pics from the catalog (similar to the ones i posted upthread), as well as scans of blisters and the 97 catalog. Let me know if you need any of those.  The individual pics are mainly from the 11 series and boxed sets.

I'll only be able to send them out in February though, when i'm back home. Send me reminder in case i forget...
