  1. Here is my newest D&D character. There are very few Dragonborn minis so i had to work with what I found. This is Khalla the dragonborn bard. I think I may have a problem with choosing high charisma classes...
  2. I did a quick conversion for a player in an RPG game I am running. He wanted to play a Dragonborn paladin, and this was the closest mini to what he wanted. Before I painted it, I decided it needed the weapon swaps to match the character load-out and I also added on some plates to give him platemail. Fairly rough sculpting on my part, if you want to convert this guy, I recommend cutting off the arms at the shoulder-pads to give to access to do a good job. Anyhow, used green to highlight the black and spent only a couple hours painting him up. As he isn't sealed, it looks like a bit of paint rubbed off. I also added in the rest of the party as I know he is quite big and I haven't seen many scale comparisons. Any feedback appreciated. Looking at the big pictures I see I need to do a lot of touch-ups on the tabard, I really just mailed it in at that point.
  3. Here is the Dragonborn Sorceress from Oathsworn Miniatures for "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter as Mutilated, I mean Painted by me. I tried to make a kind of Burn Scar Effect and Failed dismally I admit. I do like how the Torch Flame came out though. And now that I think on it, I should have posted this in the Work in Progress section, too. GF
  4. Preparing for the Isle of Dread, I painted up a selection of Lizard Guys! A bunch are from Reaper, there's some Warhammer Lizardmen, and even Wrong-Eye from Hordes. There's no group shot for these, as there's a NSFW Bones Medusa in that one who wasn't as blocked by a Saurus as I thought she was when I was snapping away on the phone.
  5. The last member of the adventuring party joins my ninja http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67660-rise-of-the-kage-ninja/and the trio of halflings http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67771-oathsworn-halflings/ My brother is playing a green Dragonborn fighter. I had picked up the reptus warrior to make a paladin a while back, but that game never got off the ground so he was gathering dust. I had a lot of trouble with him, he has a lot of odd bits that I wasn't sure were scales or pieces of armour. I'm still not sure about some of them, they don't look like scales, but they also don't connect to the rest of the armour. The rear spiked attachments gave me particular trouble. I couldn't figure out for sure how to mount them, the pins and holes don't line up perfectly and I had no idea how they were supposed to look. They seemed to sit too close to the sword, so I gave them outward curves. I don't know what actual purpose they serve, but they seem almost like vestigial wings, like maybe the Dragonborn is honouring it's draconian ancestry. I used the Scorched Metal from the CAV kickstarter as a base for the metal armour again, but this time I mixed it with some Ancient Bronze, then mixed in some Antique Gold and New Gold for highlighting. I used Rach Red for the armour and Christmas Wreath with Alien Goo for the flesh. I didn't have time to do anything with the base, we are playing this evening, so I just painted the metal bit black. And here's a group shot (well, minus the ninja who is probably hiding*): *or, he's just at my friends house where we actually play the game
  6. Was looking for some minis to break up a lot of the groups I have to paint now and decided to paint this not-dragonborn fellow. A player in my D&D campaign plays Dragonborns occasionally and he usually picks the golden one. He was using a mini I had painted as an NPC for Hoarde of the Dragon Queen (which was therefore a blue dragonborn) but I decided I could paint this guy to reflect the character he plays. Of course the curse of painting the mini is on me and now our group is indefinitely on hold. Anyways, enjoyed the verdigris effect of the shield, can't remember who posted the tutorial for that but I bought Reaper Mint Green just with the intention of doing it and decided that could work for his shield. I didn't want to have too much contrasting silver/gold so his armor is sparkling blue. The hilt of his sword was all weird so I thought it kind of looked like sculpted jade and attempted to paint him that way. The only thing I really don't like is I did my usual matte testors spray over the top of him and he's a lot less shiny than when I had just painted him. I am debating going back over his shiny bits (like his scales) with a semi-gloss but am not fully decided yet. Anyways, thank you for reading!
  7. This is Ralshana, a Dragonborn Paladin serving the ideal of justice. This was done for a friend of mine to represent her character in our D&D 5th game. In truth, Ralshana uses a greatsword, but I couldn't find a halfdragon with one. Other than that, I think I captured the nature of the character. I am really pleased with how she came out, though my picture taking skills are somewhat lacking. I took great pains to highlight the scales of her body, as well as the scales on her armor. Some of that gets lost in the picture. I'm still learning about light diffusion and such. I hope you like her! And as always, CC are always welcome. Ralshana (front): Ralshana (back): There was a crack in the sculpt that I noticed, after I had primed and based her. Not sure how I missed it. I was out of greenstuff, so I just kind of went with it.

  8. Hero Forge: Archetypes 1 & 2 - Paladin & Rogue - Casting Type: Strong Plastic - table quality. I was commissioned to paint these miniature for a D&D 5e game. They are a Dragonborn Paladin and a Gnome Rogue. I am going to tag this thread with another thread that has a WIP of another HF miniatures. My over all review of this thus far is not great. I don't want to bash another company but I am not impressed so far. The miniature absorbs the paint. No joke It takes it into the miniature. The following pictures take about 4 rounds of diluted paint to achieve the color. I saw the video SamuraiJack posted about coating them. But as this is my first try and I didn't pay for them I was not going to attempt them. The likelihood is I may not get the chance as I am unwilling to purchase a "Strong Plastic" Hero Forge miniature to test it out. First coat of Reaper Brown Wash (3:1) to see the details better. It didn't help much; the cast of these didn't have the details show very well at all. Next was a dry brush: From dark grey to a lighter gray. Duel attempt: Bring out detail / add shadowing. It took about 4 layers of diluted paint. I standardly use a 3:1 ratio as I am prone to glazing/washing. Honed Steel, White Leather (which is whiter than the link, fyi), Denim Blue (also lighter than the picture) Forest Green, Intense Brown, I'm also attempting to paint faster too, Trying to get my production time down for table table quality.
  9. This cool dragon person was painted up to be our 5th Edition Vengeance Paladin, follower of the Storm Lord. The brown spots on her scales and skin are part of her back story, where her lineage is questionable and her mother was executed for infidelity. The character is not on good terms with her family....
  10. I recently modified and painted the 14225: Ra'am, Reptus Hero figure for use as a D&D 5e character. Character Inspiration: Race: White Dragonborn Class: Barbarian Background: Pirate Place of Origin: Luskan, City of Sails I did many modifications to represent this character. Base: is scratch-built from polystyrene to represent the gunwale of a Viking longboat. The water is sculpted milliput. The bag is a plastic piece from some 1:72 scale minitaure kit. The rope is a coil of Gale Force 9 product. Weapons: The sword is a reaper sword from a weapons blister can't remember which one. I notched it with a round file to give it a serrated back edge. The javelins are scratch-built with polystyrene rod and string. The javelin quiver is scultpted milliput. Shield: I took strips of polystyrene and bonded them together to make the planks of the shield. I used thin sheet polystyrene to make the outer skin of the shield and placed gouges in it to reveal the planks below. Brass Key: A large key made from bent wire and polystyrene hangs from a cord around his neck. This is a bit of backstory character detail. I use primarily Vallejo and reaper paints thinned with glass cleaner (Windex). The miniature has dynamic pose that gives it so much life. As I was looking for a figure for this character, I was instantly drawn to the idea of my dragonborn pirate leaping over the side of a gunwale to board an enemy ship. Overall, it was a very fun project. I think I took the figure in a whole new direction, and I am pleased with how it turned out. Original miniature for comparison:
  11. I am running Hoard of the Dragon Queen for my D&D players, and they faced off against Landerosa Cyanwrath, the half blue dragon warrior last session. I realized I didn't have a suitable mini so I speed painted a metal Reaper fig, the Gaan-Hor Warrior, to represent Cyanwrath. The Gaan-Hor is supposed to have wings but Cyanwrath doesn't have them so I did not attach the wings before painting him. I also had a new player join last session and he is going to play a silver dragonborn fighter. I used a prepainted mini for the first session but this weekend I painted up a Bones Dragonman Warrior as his character mini. I decided to paint his armor bluish steel, and before I knew it I decided on the spur of the moment to try out NMM. The only time I tried that before I did not do so well with hit even though I was trying to follow detailed instructions. This time I winged and it actually went much better, I think. I liked the bluish metal bits and the silver NMM better than my attempt at gold. I will have to try gold again using different tones and colors to see if I can get better at it. For the last pic I decided to put the two minis in confrontation in front of another project I started this past weekend, my first attempt with water effects. The fountain is supposed to be a Cthuluesque fountain for Deep Ones, I think. I still need to try to add the actual fountain spray and ripples to the water, but that will come this next weekend. Here is the silver dragonborn first:
  12. Here's the final pictures of my speed paint for the Dragonborn Paladin. He could be much better, but I really wanted to just speed-paint him and get him to table top quality without spending too much time on him. Anyhow, C&C welcomed and appreciated!

  13. This is my Dragonborn Warlord in my buddy's current DnD game. I went for copper dragon scales. This is my first attempt at oxidized copper touches, and at doing 'colored armor'.
