  1. As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7. This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns. I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like: MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D. Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be important

    DSM troll with fashion sense (not)

    I have sworn to make this guy my next Shadowrun character. everything about him screams fun, from the cheap cigar to the naguahide boots and skirt, to the hat with a snack. I had initially tried leopard spots on the fur chest piece but it just wouldn't come out right. I did like all the color and the blue stripe in the hair. Here is a troll who dresses as he wants does what he wants and no one is going to tell him he's wrong!
  3. This is the Bones figure 77267: Kallaguk, Troll King, who I keep thinking of as a marsh or swamp troll. He is a bit wobbly. His ankles are very thin and he tends to tip forward (as might be visible in a few photos). On a flat surface instead of a plinth he is straightened out by the spike on his club. I think he would have a difficult time balancing in any material except Bones. He was part of my year-end round up and Conga Line of finishing half-done figures. There is also a much older WIP thread here.
  4. I quite enjoyed painting this guy. Not everything went quite as I had hoped, but overall I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

    77152 - Marsh Troll

    Hi folks, This is my take on the Reaper Bones Marsh Troll from the second Kickstarter. I used him as Trepsin the Troll in my Tyranny of Dragons D&D campaign. C&C welcome, more pictures can be found on my painting blog.

    Troll.. But not that kind of troll.

    This troll was painted using almost nothing but washes. It was quite the interesting process. I managed to get a great skin tone by layering various washes on top of each other. Overall, I am quite pleased with how he came out. I tried to make the pustules on his back look infected and pussfilled by costing them with a gloss varnish. I think it worked. Gratuitous booty shot CAH

    Gourls Paints a Cave Troll: 77004

    I tried to use a quick-rigged photo setup for these. Hopefully these look better than my Goldar pics. Also I tried something different on the mini. I used a coat of brown liner as a base coat after having seen discussion about it, then dry brushed up from there. Not sure how I feel about it.
  8. Adding to the eternal march of the Giants, my first completed pieces from the "Blood Rage" Kickstarter are the big guys. First we have the Frost Giant: A rather bestial Fire Giant, who apparently got the short end of the sealant on his crown...to be fixed, as I only noticed now: The Mountain Giant (my personal favorite and one of the reasons I had to back it, as a Kickstarter exclusive) The slightly less giant Troll: And some group shots: And one with Sir Forscale, for scale:
  9. Folks this is the lovely Bones troll that Pochi sent me for the fall exchange. I am sorry for the delay in posting pictures but the Troll suffers from weak ankles and I had to let him lean back to get decent pictures. ( bassically stood him on his side and let gravity do its thing). After taking these pictures I will be attempting to stiffen up those ankles so that he can stay upgright permanently! Fair warning this is picture heavy as there was sooooooo much on this mini and his base I just couldn't keep the number of pictures down. I also apologize for my poor photography skills ,,, I have none! First the full mini in all its glory! Next the main character Please note the lovely choice of colors and the blending is just excellent... (also as some will note.. there is Orange!!!!) and the drool.. (well done) And now for the supporting characters: the Iguana: the Butterfly: The log and skull: The rubber? plant with a small creature as well. Note the roots into the swamp water: and the Rose! what can I say.. I LOVE IT Thanks Pochi!
  10. This is one of three figures from the Ral Partha (now Iron Wind Metals) set "Wolfram's Gang." The set has three trolls, a woman with a rifle and pistol, a cyborg-troll, and this fella. His clothing was a little more eccentric than the others', and all that bare skin inspired me to try my hand at painting tiny tattoos on his skull and arms. There's a WIP thread for a whole lot of Shadowrun trolls here. Show-Off threads for the other Shadowrunners are: Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, an ork woman street samurai, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Let's Get Frosty!

    I'm trying to get more monsters available for the random encounters in Frostgrave. First off is a Frost Giant, converted from the Pathfinder Battles: Dungeons Deep Frost Giant. She wasn't directly intended for Frostgrave, I was going to convert her to match the Frost Giant Jarl from "Giants Revisited"...then realized I misremembered the art, and she already WAS based off that piece. So she got a heavy infantry makeover:
  12. Trying to expand the bestiary for "Frostgrave". The Frost Trolls (Yetis) are former Shaggy Man from HeroClix, the apes are also former clix, and the Frost Giant is a Pathfinder Frost Giant converted to a heavy infantry type...not specifically for Frostgrave but fit the theme. First paints are applied, and Lars the Linkboy is there for scale.
  13. This is the mini I painted for robinh for the Fall Exchange. It is Kallaguk from Bones II. Robin asked for a monster and said he liked orange (grin). I tried to work some orange in here and there. I tried to paint him to look somewhat amphibious. Robin's mini got to be my guinea pig for several things I have never done before. This is the first sculpting I have ever done and the first time I have attempted water. Both turned out ok, I definitely need more practice but overall I liked the finished project. Some of the pictures make me cringe because they seem to shine giant spotlights on places I could have done better! I really did like how he turned out and am going to have to get another to paint for myself. My favorite part - the drool! I hid lots of little things in the base. There is a fish skeleton in the water between his feet, a chameleon, a stick monster, another little monster lurking under a bush, and a sheep (or demon) skull. Lots of pictures, I will post some in the first reply. Hopefully Robin has better pictures than I do. I am not a very good mini photographer.
  14. This one started out primed with Reaper Brown Liner (not shown). First I very thinly washed color over it, green on the base and two shades of blue over the body, allowing the Brown Liner to show through.

    77344: Ice Troll

    Finished this one a couple of weeks ago, but finally made a new light box. I had him lying around at a weird half-done skin stage, where I'd tried a bit of ink washing and dry brushing with minimal success. Decided to get stuck in and finish him off anyway, and with a combination of dark blue shading and white highlighting I think I got him looking pretty good. Also gave me a chance to practice my metallics a bit more. It's my first time doing a snow base, which I thought came out pretty well, using the old baking soda, PVA glue and white paint technique. He's also the biggest mini that I've completed. Soon I hope to be able to unleash him on some unsuspecting adventurers in Frostgrave! Just hope they're not my unsuspecting adventurers...
  16. I was doing home remodeling and was self-exiled from my home and paint desk for over two months, so when I got access to my hobby room and paint desk and reorganized, I collected all my unfinished projects on the desk and realized my shelf of shame had grown to unacceptable proportions. I decided to tackle finishing as many of these pieces just to get them off my desk before I move on, even if I speed paint them or cut steps, but I am tired of looking at too many primed-only or part painted minis. So here is the first wave: Mashaaf which was my favorite to paint among these, the bones mummy lich I had nearly finished six months ago, which was nice except had too soft details on the face, the Scibor elven ruins, Mega Miniatures pack mules I base coated two years ago, and some GriffinTamer terrain pieces. These are not my best work by far but I'm going to call them done for now to get them off my desk and maybe some day I will go back and add some more finishing touches.

    Bones II Mountain Troll (77333)

    This week I completed the Mountain Troll from the Bones II, Expansion Pack 1. I tend to hesitate to select the large figures to do, as I somehow find the prospect of painting them intimidating; and I want to try and make more of an effort to work on them in the future. This guy, for all his size, was a nice easy figure to complete. For the complete painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/mountain-troll-bones-ii-figue.html

    Summer Exchange - 03087: Battle Troll

    My exchange partner this time was Thes Hunter. I decided on the awesome Battle Troll. I figured it should give her players a good scare! Here are my less than awesome photos (I snagged a few just before packing it, at work, on the deadline...) Hopefully Thes will post some much better photos at some point

    The Dark Swamp - Bones Diorama

    Hi all, I per my habit, I painted my bones mini by batch, and the theme for this one was "the dark swamp". I imagined that the swamp was plagued by a new aquatic creature. So the current inhabitants of the swamp (Troll, frogmen and turlemen) banded together to rid the pond from this thing. (As you can tell, writing fluff is not my forte...) And a few pics of the troll: The tree was sulpted in clay, the base of the scenery is insulation foam, the vegetation is taken from dollar store easter decor... C&C welcome

    77004 Cave Troll

    So are those tumors on his back or is he multiplying like a Gremlin. More trolls in Bones 3 please.

    92680 Kallaguk King of the Trolls

    He's like part ogre, part Creature from the Black Lagoon, and part stegosaurus.

    92821 Ice Troll

    Knocking out all my trolls. 2 to go.

    Painted Ice Troll (77344) Bones II

    This week I completed the Ice Troll from the Bones II "Expansion Pack I". I'm particularly pleased with how his face came out. For the step-by-step painting write-up, please see my Bones painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/ice-troll-bones-ii-figure.html

    92803 Mountain Troll

    Had a lot of fun painting this beast. Reminds me of Ganon or one of his Moblins.

    Imbrian Arts Troll Druid
