  1. Hirst Art Blocks like the guy on the far left of this picture.
  2. Fantasy (Reaper Minis): Table Top Role Playing Games. D&D, Pathfinder, HackMaster 3rd Edition SciFi: Warhammer 40k.
  3. Depends on the model. As you say, some of the larger models will need a large enough surface that contacts the new base. All of mine will be re-based, though. I hate the broccoli bases, but that's a conversation for another thread. I have several Hirst Arts molds, and will most likely use the 1" dungeon floor tiles for early every model. For horses, I use 2x 1" flat floor ties glued together and then flock them with kitty litter then add static grass after painting the bases. For Australians, Back-to-base-ix is based out of Australia. Check out their square bases in this link.
  4. The latest Fantasy weapons pack has no picture attached. It would be nice to have a Picture, I think. Or maybe my browser hates me. Fantasy Weapons Pack
  5. Black Templar Forge World Dreadnought. The arms are magnetized. His close-combat arm is the Iron Clad Seismic Hammer with Heavy Flamer because I think it looks cool. The other arm is a Forgeworld Plasma Cannon. The base includes hirst art blocks. I tried to give him a more dymic pose: 1 foot higher, turning slightly to his left, balancing on steps.
  6. Yeah. He has a lot of fiddly bits and baubs to paint.
  7. My only recommendation applies to nearly all space marines: Drill out the barrel holes. This is a storm bolter, so it should have 2 holes next to each other. Otherwise, there is nothing wrong with this mini. The base is great, the rest is certainly tabletop quality. If anything, you could give it a wash with Games Workshop's Badab Black wash on the gun and skirting. Keep it up.
  8. My STH-1D Stealth is Ready to Roll! For the Battle Tech campaign I'm in. My character is from the Federated Suns, with his youth and early training in the Crucis March. (Not completely happy with the base. May redo it.) I went with green because some of the fluff I've found online say that the Cadet Cadre are green. The Cadet Cadre could be spread throughout the Federated Suns, unless I am confusing them with someone else. The Crucis March mercenaries are actually red, white, and blue, but that seemed too cheesy for me. I didn't want the Union Jack or the Stars and Stripes in my space fantasy game. Plus, Green will help my Stealth unit blend in with forested planets better.
  9. Yet another christmas present for my gaming group. I picked up the mini and base at GenCon this year. I added a sword on his hip and slapped him on a new base. I wanted to keep the ice cycles hanging off the rock clear, but I muffed them up. Oh well. Corlim.bmp corlim2.bmp
  10. Thanks for the feedback! Constructive criticism is always welcome. I need a stand for the minis in the light booth, I think. The tripod to stablize the camera makes it difficult for even pictures (straight-on shots, that is to say). Yeah, the sword is definitely not of elven make, but he's collected a rather extensive assortment of weapons over the years, so one or two might have been dwarven at some point!
  11. The bionic arm is funny! Nice one!
  12. Christmas present for our GM that was taking us through the underdark series in our HackMaster campaign. Dude. It's called a mindflayer. (I'm assuming that mindflayer is a copywrited or trademarked name?) Again, the only modification needed was a new base. mind.bmp mind2.bmp
  13. This is a christmas present I made for a friend of mine. It's a Segway for an IG objective marker I made out of a scout bike and a cadian trooper. Or catachan. I dunno. I play Black Templar. I suppose he could also use it as a standard bearer or sergeant. I'd let him count it as a close combat weapon or something. Let me know what you think! Segway_1.bmp Segway_2.bmp Segway_3.bmp
  14. This will be a Christmas Gift for a buddy in our HackMaster campaign. This is from the Warlord line. It matches our party's halberd-using, crossbow-shooting monk's description very well, I thought. I picked up the base and mini at GenCon this year. The bolt case is a bit from the undead chariot from the GW Warhammer Fantasy line. I added a crossbow from a reaper weapons accessory pack. I know the base is large, but I wanted it to look dynamic. Or something. Athenion.bmp Athenion_2.bmp
  15. Another christmas gift for my HackMaster group. Orin is a dwarven battlemage. He wears a serialed numbered item from a tournament: The colar of Ironskin. The only modification was the base. Orin.bmp Orin2.bmp
  16. The cloak is wonderful. The armor looks turquois, which is a nice change. I like it.
  17. But, that's been one of my favorite weird al songs forever.
  18. That's all I got to add. Nice mini!
  19. This is another Christmas present for a player in our HackMaster campaign. He's a human fighter. I picked up the mini at GenCon this year. Since AROK!!!! carries and uses so many weapons, I had to add 3 to his belt. The sword on his right hip is from the Black Templar upgrade pack (GW 40k). The sword on his left hip is a Britonian bit (Warhammer Fantasy). The warhammer on his left hip (hard to see) is from a Reaper Warlord Weapon Accessory Pack (Dwarves, I think). That pack has excellent axes and shields. And the cloak is a bit from some Warhammer fantasy figure. That was the most important part, as he carries around the pelt from a frost wolf he killed on his first adventure. Arok.bmp Arok_2.bmp
  20. This will be my character in an upcoming HackMaster campaign. From the discontinued Kenzerco Miniatures line, this is the Human Fighter in Heavy Armor with some modifications. The base is from a Hirst Arts Mold. The arrow is a bit from the Skeleton Chariot from the Warhammer Undead army. The axe on his hand is a bit from the chaos warriors (Warhammer fantasy). The dagger in the shield and the axe on his hip came from Reaper weapons accessory packs. As I will be playing a Human Fighter, it's a good choice. Although, I won't be starting with such wonderful armor. Fighter.bmp Fighter_2.bmp
  21. Thanks for the kind words! The cape is from the Warhammer line by GW. It's from the Empire Army, Knightly Order set according to the bitz site I ordered it from on Ebay. Hope that helps.
  22. These are some of the most amazingly painted, 65 EP, random-encounter miniatures I've ever seen! Thank you very much for the "How I Did It" run down. For future reference, I can safely say that I'm always interested in reading these.
  23. It's Sonic Wallace. Or William Sonic. Either way, I wouldn't mess with him. "They can take our lives, but they'll never take our wood chips!" Nicely done.
  24. I am very envious of the cloak, as my recent yellow cloak isn't nearly as nice. Well done, sir.
  25. The eyes really draw you in. The gemstones are wonderful. The chipmonks were a nice touch. Familiars?
