I still like a lot of the old mini sculpts from the 80s and 90s. Some of the old Ral Partha and Grenadier figs have held up well against the test of time. A friend of mine gave me a big box of unpainted metal and I dig through it from time to time looking for figs to paint as a change of pace and to practice technique on.
Here are a couple of figs I did last weekend. The same friend needed a fig for and RPG character he has, so I whipped one out for him, as well as a second one.
Ral Partha Ranger
He had a very bad, teenage paint job from the 90's so I resurrected him. Originally, his shield was all white and had a what looked like a tree on it, so I recreated it as well.
Ral Parth Rogue
This is the fig for the RPG character. Not sure if it'll fit the bill. If it doesn't his group has a mountain of unpainted metal I can dig through to find the right one.
