  1. My friend found this dwarf, he thinks he got it around 2006, about eleven years ago:
  2. I finally was able to get the time and - quite frankly - the painting bug biting me to get this done for Jasper the 2nd, who won my Artist page 500 likes random contest drawing. This is the figure he picked out of my collection and I'm going to mail him out this week. It's a Forge Guardian from Rackham Confrontation, dwarf of Tir-Na-Bor. Metal figure, at 28mm scale. It was actually quite fun to paint up. The base is a pre-made base that I painted to be a stained/rusted metallic from the old Stonehaven Dwarves kickstarter. Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated, thanks for looking!
  3. Working on something new, presenting Brokk Grungsson, Lord-Magnate of Barak-Nar, The Paragon of Prosperity from the City of the First Sunrise. He's a Dwarf Sky-Pirate who comes in lots of pieces:- Lots and lots of pieces. Normally, I'd build various sub-assemblies for ease of painting before final assembly. But with the way the flying harness is built around Brokk it's looking like I might have to paint the individual pieces as he goes together. This is as much as I dare assemble for now. Most of Brokk and the legs and shoulders of his harness. And then the painting began. Going against the official scheme (as usual) I've gone for red armour (Scarlett Red > Brownshade Wash > Blood Red > 1:1 Blood Red/Orange Red).
  4. Finished this guy a little over a week ago. Took almost no time compared to my previous figures and I've got a better setup figured out for taking pictures now!
  5. I've completed a second batch of miniatures from Bones 3. I'm glad to be done with them, and some may have been a bit rushed; I bit off a bit more than I could chew. The Plague Marines, Cave Goblins, and some random others were all on the table at the same time. First, a group shot: A bundle of terrain, from the Crypt expansion. One wall is not, and was a sample from the ReaperCon swag bag. It just snuck in! Goremaw, the Devourer of paint! I'm so glad I used craft paints on him, I'm not sure how many bottles of purple I would have gone through otherwise. A Halfling Stereotype. You'd see a statue like this in front of any fantasy pizza place. I hadn't noticed that moldline across his chest until I was uploading the photo...yikes! "Hey you guuuys!" I really enjoyed painting this one. I experimented a bit with his skin and tried to match him to the pale tones of the D&D pre-paint Fomorians. He's not quite there, but I like how he came out. Bandit. One of my favorites from the set. "Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt" gave me a new appreciation for the simple thugs that show up in every game. I hadn't realized he was meant to be wearing pants until I was inking him, and saw the patch over the knee. I liked the lesser-dressed look, so I painted it up to be a bloody bandage slapped over the knee instead. Half-Orc Merchant. Not much to be said about him, I just painted him in the style of my Warhammer Empire troops. Lastly, a bunch of Dwarves. Beagle knows it's not a Kickstarter unless it has a Dwarf or two in it.
  6. Good evening all, so I finished these two this morning, that come from an old Ral Partha set called I think Dwarven Steam Cannon, that was resurrected in a recent Ral Partha Kickstarter. I don't have the actual steam cannon, but I do have two of the three dwarves that operate the contraption, which are here: I made them pretty much the same color of uniform, because they are running the same big machine, just varying essentially their hair color. They do both have eyes and they are painted, but they are under those furrowed hairy brows. Here they are together: There is a third engineer, who is actually working, he's got a shovel and he's picking up coal, but that's a figure I just don't happen to be the proud owner of. I'll have to pick that one up one of these days to complete my little trio of dwarves. Remember that these are old school Partha, so they are pretty small sized figures. They probably take up about 1/3 to 1/4 the lead of a modern dwarf these days and are probably about 20 mm tall. I really do like these figures, as they are some of the few non-bellicose figures from that time, no weapons, just working (even though they are running a cannon). Anyhow, simple paint jobs, and I hope you enjoy them!
  7. A recent miniature to get me out of my two year funk
  8. Hello guys and gals! So just got these two photographed this afternoon, two Children of the Night old school Samurais, from two different packages. One is a Female Samurai, out of an old Samurai Player Characters package or something similar, and the other one is a dwarf samurai from a Dwarf Player character set, beautifully and petitely sculpted by Dennis Mize. I painted them both at the same time in an attempt to use the same color schemes, hence saving a tad bit of time. I'm pretty satisfied how they came out, even though I have doubts about the female samurai's eyes. These are though very true 25 mm figures, really small, so I don't think I want to keep messing with them, as don't want to make matters worse. Here's the Female Samurai: And here is the Dwarf Samurai: Here they are together: and this is kind of fun, I actually painted the female samurai as per the records I found, in July of 2007, so literally a decade ago, and here is that comparison: In which also the eyes were a bit obnoxious to work with, but in my old paint job, they ended up being pretty large. The older version way back then would have been painted with craft paints and brushes I would have gotten from Michaels. So anyways, hope you enjoy!
  9. This one took awhile, since I basically had to paint the throne all over again when I decided to try the granite look. My first attempt, got a little runny but practice makes perfect.
  10. Here is a hero forge dwarf fighter I've been working on painting the last few days. A friend in my D&D group convinced me to make one of these (before I found Reaper and other mini companies). The detail is pretty good, but the price point was pretty high. I went with the brass and if I had to do it over I would probably choose the high quality plastic. I also didn't think about having paint all the nooks and crannies when designing this guy. Let me know what you think so far. C&C is always welcome.
  11. Here is my newest finished miniature. This is my first real stab at human-like faces and eyes. It was really fun and totally nerve-wracking! It was also my first real foray into basing. I had a ton of fun with this one and am really happy with how it turned out. I showed it to my buddy who plays this character and he loved it, mission accomplished! Thanks for checking him out. C&C welcome as always. -WhatsEcstacy
  12. Got my bones this afternoon, inventoried, ate lunch, and decided to paint for a couple hours. These will all be used in an adventure his weekend. also only painted with bones 3 paints. The shield may be used by the dwarf pc in which case I will glue it to the arm holding the spike. Painted the spike and shield in mushroom themed colors since this character took as her skills craft (mushroom smith) and craft (alchemy with mushrooms). Sorry for the poor photos. Bones 3 have not yet gone downstairs where the photo station is.
  13. I was on a dwarf kick a while back while attempting to make a dungeon dive game. It was a practice on nonmetallic metals. Thanks for looking.
  14. Well, here are some proper photos of my latest completed work. Burak the dwarf from Mr. Lee's Minis. It was a fun project.
  15. ^^ So that's the link to the WIP thread for this guy. He did not turn out to be a fastish paint job. He turned into my experiment. I put more work into highlighting the hair than I usually do. I got his bald dome more shiny than I have for past skin tones. I've done bits of freehand before, but this is the first fabric pattern freehand I've done (turned out a bit thicker than I would have preferred, but I still like it). First NMM for me ever. I may have been better off with a classic sword or straight line sort of thing, but ehh... this turned out okay for a first shot, I think. The axes took 3-4 hours And for good measure, I scuffed up his boots in the "sand", and put a shadow of him on the sand. I got my nice camera rolling, but not I am re-learning it. Got a diffused ring LED attached to it for lighting. Just a piece of gray-blue construction paper in the background. Comments, critiques, shrieks of "what in the heck is this junk?!" all welcome!
  16. 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!
  17. Felt like something different last night and started putting paint on this guy. Gave him a snowy owl and polar bear pelt

Pledge £22 for one of each of the two packs, Command & the Knight pack. Pledge £42, for a five pack Unit Builder twenty 28mm size white metal models.One Command Group & four Knight Packs Bear Knight Musician Stretch Goals.

  19. 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.
  20. Hi all. Start paint )
  21. 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
  22. 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 :-)
  23. 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...
  24. 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
