  1. Just finished up my Logrim. Kind of a quickie paint job. Started with Army Painter Matte Black color primer. Dry brushed with Citadel Necron Compound. The highlights are a mix of Reaper HD and Army Painter paints. Washed with Citadel washes. Comments and and critiques are more than welcome. Thanks for looking. Here are some pics under better light. Didn't realize the first two were so dark.
  2. Hi all. Start paint )
  3. I'm working on Mr. Ironspike as a fastish paint job, while I rest my eyes after working on the lady with the spiked chain (also waiting for a shipment of paints so I can do red accents better for her). I got his face (skin, eyes, mouth) done, and have started the base coat for the rest of his skin. Swapped a lightbulb to something that isn't boiling my eyeballs - maybe it will help on my shading as well. Not sure what color the pants will be, but he definitely will have a glorious red mane (normal "red" hair which isn't actually red). Considering putting a tattoo of the Kirkwall symbol (Dragon Age 2) on his back, if I can swing it. Will try to get the lightbox set up for better photos in near future!
  4. Oathsworn's fourth kickstarter project was Clan McFiggin, a set of 12 dwarf brewers, back in 2014. Time to get this party started! This is Ancient McFiggin, the eldest of the lot, and presumably prime taster for the brewery. There is something strange going on with his mouth. Not sure what is supposed to be what, so I went for dentures. Possibly is should have been the upper lip. Whatever. Ancient McFiggin from the Clan McFiggin KS Oathsworn Miniatures Metal 30mm bases
  5. Ok so I'm 5 months from 40 and never painted a model in my life. But a group of friends and I have recently started a D&D 5e campaign on guys trip and really got into it. However it soon became apparent that stick pins and grid board suck. So i wanted to get some minis for our game.... I was looking at pre paints but those are few and far between or over priced so watched a few Youtube videos... got an itch and firgured why the hell not.... so since i live in bumfuq nowhere i ordered from amazon and ebay the types of figures i needed for our characters a dwarf cleric, elf ranger, and elf mage.... i started with the dwarf, figured it would be easier as my friend likes alliance in WoW and always plays dwarfs but soon learned metal paints are a pain in the rump to me. the elf i did last night and i think i see improvement over the dwarf attempt. though seeing pictures brought out the flaws i hope fix before clear coating either one. i was in such a newbie rush i primed before triming the extra mold lines on the elf but really i seem to be missing the trick even with a new knife blade the lines seem to splinter or split and not come off the model. maybe i need files? seems like there were alot of defects on these plastic minis... my mage is metal and much better and detailed. Please let me know what you think and where i may need to ficus my attention to improve. Oh and any and all tips on mold line/imperfection removal definately appreciated :-)
  6. A pair of really fun Dwarfs to paint. The Ranger was particularly enjoyable. I think I need to try and paint dwarf hair something other than red. It always seems to be my go to colour when I paint them. I like that the red has a certain "pop" to it but it might be time to expand on my palette choices a little. Maybe next time...
  7. A piece I did today in between working on a commission piece I have going. Excluding the priming, she has about 2-3 hours in her. My wife picked the colors to represent one of her characters from WarHammer Fantasy. She's a female Runecaster. This is also one of my favorite models. I tried to catch the expression in her face. The hammer and chisel are magic; hammer being cold steel, and the chisel being mithril. As always, C&C is welcomed! Thanks and enjoy! CAH
  8. EDGE OF OBLIVION After many miles climbing the mountains of his homeland, Torgar the Barbarian had finally caught up to the two thieves who had stolen his family heirloom, his grandmother's axe which had been used to cut the head off the great orc chieftain Yarvak. He had found their trail and followed it through the blizzard. He was raging after he had shown them hospitality and drinks, they had slipped a drug into his drink and stolen the artifact.... Now was the time for the reckoning! "VENGEANCE SHALL BE MINE!!!!" Roared Torgar, after taking the head off the first thief and showing it to the other. "YOU HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO FLEE TO LITTLE THIEF, HERE IS YOUR EDGE OF OBLIVION!!!!" The lone dwarf dropped the artifact and realized his folly, he could jump off the cliff to his death or have his head removed from his shoulders like that of his friend... -------------------------------------------------------------------- This was a really fun project, it took me a while to get started on it and took me a couple of weeks to finish as I wanted to make it a display piece and be able to enter it into a couple of contests, one of which will be ReaperCon 2017. Torgar the Barbarian, Limited Edition 72mm resin figure from Terrible Kids Stuff Random Encounter! 54mm resin figure from FER Miniature Base scratch built out of bark and milliput along with frit and snow flock Shoutout to Thrym for putting together the placard for me! WIP HERE Thank you all for following along and your comments/critiques are greatly sought after and appreciated!
  9. I finished Hayden up this weekend and then took some glamour shots with my tripod when it arrived on Sunday afternoon (still weirds me out Amazon delivers on Sunday). Overall, pretty pleased with how she turned out. I could definitely do more to the metals to make them stand out but I'm done with her and am moving on to other projects (namely the rest of my November Challenge and the Saladin bust).
  10. Here's another group fresh off the paint table, a grouping of naughty nasty Dwarfs from Ganesha Games "Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter. I've painted them in gray skin tones, that way they can double up as Duergar, or be used as Warhammer Chaos Dwarves who are a bit far into the Curse of Stone. The whole horde: A Screaming Face Axeman: His buddy, the Glaiveman: A converted Champion, using the Possessed Champion body, Chaos Marauder Shield, a Marauder Horseman head, an axe off a Chaos Cultist Champion, and a sculpted cloak to cover up a gap, and also it was the same week PETA protested Warhammer. The Hellfire Caster: The Hellchain: The Demonslayer. This guy is actually supposed to be one of the good Dwarves aligned with the Halfling Villagers of the set, but with his demonskull hat, he seems to work as a worshiper as well. The Priestess on Hell-Disk: The Fusilier, dong his best Jawa impersonation:
  11. This time, just a duo of Dwarfettes from "Song of Blades and Heroes: The Golden Lantern Bearer: The Panther Pelter, painted up to be the pelt of a Mountain Lion instead:
  12. Dwarves At Arms is the latest Kickstarter By Macrocosom Miniatures for a range of Crusader and Norman Dwarves sculpted by Alessio Cisbani in 28mm and cast in white metal. It is a 30 day campaign, its has been funded and is working its way to the first stretch goal. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2076383099/dwarves-at-arms/description
  13. Meet Hatholda Stormforge, a firery wild magic sorceror with lots of charisma to spare! I had a hard time finding a mini for my D&D game but I think she looks like a sorc in these colors.
  14. I skipped a few steps, but I actually remembered to take a WiP shot of my set from the "Song of Blades and Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter. There's also a few Hobgoblins who I started in hopes it would motivate the delayed KS package to arrive quicker (it worked!)
  15. This is an old ChainMail Berserker that I got out of the melt bin at Reapercon. His weapon was broken, so I replaced it with a GW axe from my bits box. I almost painted him up with orange hair like a GW trollslayer, but I've actually got a few of those figures around, so I figured I'd save that paint scheme for them. I gave him a bunch of tribal style tattoos and followed the advice I got on my last tattoos and tried to blend them into the skin a little more. I think it looks better. Now, I just need to actually develop some artistic ability and my tattoos might actually start to look good.
  16. It has been awhile since I posted a mini here, and have been forgetting to take pictures before leaving the figure elsewhere. I painted Bailey here on a whim, since female dwarves are rare and rogues even rarer. I tried a new idea on the cloak's trim, and I'm pretty happy with it.
  17. So, I have flocking, sealing, and glossing left to do, but it looks like I've made a dent in all my end of the year Kickstarter arrivals, expected or not: This includes: Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts, Oathsworn: Heroines in Sensible Shoes, RPE: Dwarf Veterans, Midlam: Wizard Apprentices, TAG: Halflings, and some other odds and ends I've just opened a package from Midlam of Halfling Wizards and Apprentices, so I better wrap these up soon...I think there's also some more Halflings and Chaos Dwarves due soon from Ganesha Games. I may have a problem...
  18. Yesterday, I wrapped up the final touches on quite a few miniatures that arrived via Kickstarter this November. I thought the first gallery should be the simplest, and it's just a few of the promo pieces from TAG's recent "Halfling Rooster Riders" project. First, we have the Drunken Halfling Bard, who I have been wanting since his green first went up as a fan project: And a Dwarf Floozy to accompany him:
  19. Some more minis, this time of the shorter variety, that arrived from Kickstarters I've backed. November was a busy month for my mailman! This set is the Dwarf Veterans Warband from Ral Partha Europe. They seemed to have a particularly frosty city in mind with their design philosophy. Dwarf Brewmaster/Apothecary. This is one of my favorite Dwarf sculpts to date Snorri, the Ginger Ninja: Dwarf Ranger. "Real Dwarves wear hoods, Mr. Jackson!" Sonja the Shieldmaiden (one of my suggestions during the Kickstarter campaign! Well, not Dwarf Sonja, but a Shieldmaiden) This puts my Red Sonja parodies to actual Red Sonja minis at a 2:1 The Wizard's Apprentice (though he looks like a perfectly capable Wizard to me) I'm really glad RPE went with my suggestion of making the Thugs real low-class criminal types. There's not many of those that aren't full-on Chaos Dwarves. These fit the bill for brigands and the like perfectly. Another total. brute, completely untrustworthy. Must be an expert second-story man. Crossbowman (Crossbowdwarf?), with totally fab hair. I hadn't noticed his thumb until after I edited the photos... Dwarf Scribe. Perhaps even another Wizard. A boar. A fast friend, or fast food for the road.
  20. These are: - Ingrid, Female Gnome: 03082 - Lydia Copperthumb: 03399 (Converted to hold rifle.) - Blackjack, Rogue: 60053 - Sajan, Iconic Monk: 89018 - Harsk, Iconic Dwarf Ranger: 89020 The party has set sail on a secret mission in service of The King. They are one dwarven fighter, one dwarven gunslinger, a gnome druid, a human rogue and a monk. I really hope the other players will like their characters. :) Individual pics:
  21. Sorry for the 'batch' aspect, but... it is indeed a batch submission of some of the last pieces coming out of the production line for Septembre and October. I couldn't really decide which one to post so here you go :)
  22. This wizard was my first large experiment with OSL. The WiP is here. He's now going to face our party of PC's in the Dragonlance campaing we're playing, playing the role of Rance Coalmount, Thane of the Daergar. Not our favorite dwarf, to be sure. But the party has bigger fish to fry in this battle, so he may yet survive; we'll see. Comments and critiques are always welcome!
  23. Working on the Undead Dwarf from Stonehaven Miniatures on a slotted base from the same. The resin base is flagstone and has a skeleton hand coming out of the ground. Primed with Reaper Grey Primer and lined with Reaper Walnut Brown. Still have some more lining to do. Stay tuned.
  24. Hi all, Here is another random mini I decided to paint. This little guy stood out to me because, for a Dwarf, well, he is pretty tall. He may not look like it by himself, but he dwarfs any other Dwarven people next to him. I wanted him to have a very bright and fire-y beard... for a change from my more usual grey-brown beards. So here is my take on Herryk the Dwarf Cleric.
