  1. 03386 Thorvald Dwarf Hero

    I've been collecting minis for almost 30 years and finally getting around to doing what I've been wanting to do which is actually paint them. Started a couple months ago with a few Dark Sword Critter Kingdom minis and an old Grenadier dragon. And now this, which is my first Reaper mini and an attempt at NMM. C&C welcome.
  2. 02607: Bjorn, Dwarven Warrior

    Started doing NMM again after almost half a year painting my Skaven AoS army. What do you all think? Thanks in advance for any advice or criticisms.
  3. I'm starting to get lost here, so I figured I'd make an index of stuff I've posted. Many of these are loaded with enough pics and text that they're almost mini-tutorials. Questions and comments are always welcome. If you don't get a reply within a couple days, find me on Facebook, or add me on Battle.net (Xumenicus#1118).

  4. Anghela, Dwarf Mage

    After painting the dragon for the Paint Your Dragon Contest, I needed a "palette cleanser" before starting on the Jedi children minis for my grandkids' Christmas ornaments. They are even tinier than the dwarf so it was good for me to practice on a little mini again. Her eyes, especially her right one gave me fits. Other than that eye, I am pretty happy with her and she is just for play anyway. I tried to really push my highlights on her. I think I am usually too conservative. This time, I may have overdone it but I like her and she was for practice so she'll stay this way most likely. I did a wash on her hair but it really knocked the highlights down so I re=highlighted. Also, I realize once I saw the photos, she has a tiny bit of flock stuck to the front of her. I have tweezed that off but did not retake the photos as it didn't make that big of difference. Any C&C is appreciated.
  5. So, I'm getting close to finishing up this Project. Also, my olde thread for this was from before the Great PhotoBucket Fiasco. So I'm redoing this thread using my new Imgur account! Behold my Bad Paint Jobs and Despair!! Or Not;) First up the Ani-Pals! Dog I Dog III Dog IV Bare the Bear Companion Dawg the Ranger, "Leader" of the Ani-Pals! Sting the Pixie Rogue! Salle Goblin Sorceress! Kildrick the Dwarven Cleric! Gonna post the rest in the next post so I don't hit Image Max Limits. GF
  6. The Gardening Dwarf

    Yet another Wolsung mini, this time it's the Dwarf Gardener, he's fully equipped to deal with any young'uns that stray on to his lawn. Had a lot of fun painting this one, he's just so unusual! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  8. Grenadier 2007 Females #9: Dwarf

    The dwarf is the 5th figure that I have painted from the old Grenadier 2007 set. It was so hideous that I never posted it, partially because I didn't really like the figure and just slapped some paint on it to call it done. I mean, those eyes were just sculpted circles. I filled the center with color, edge highlighted the raised outer edge, and then went around them with a shadow color. If you are an aspiring sculptor... never ever sculpt eyes like it is 1980. But I was talked into posting it, so blame 72moonglum and Volksfest for the horror. For scale, here is the dwarf between and Infinity Nomad and a Reaper bugbear. Knee-capping is her only option.
  9. 77400 Durgam Deepmug, Dwarf Hero

    I was tempted to remove his sword and replace it with a dollhouse coffee mug, but I've only got one of those left and I'm saving it to make molds from. Also it's a very nice sword. The flesh wash puddled a bit more than I was expecting, but I decided to leave it as combined with the grey beard, it adds to the grizzled veteran look.
  10. 77353 Ursula, Dwarven Bear Rider

    This is the second time I've painted her (the first was gifted out to a coworker). After I finished her I realized the Maxwell House color scheme of orange and blue fit the Chicago Bears as well.
  11. 89020 Harsk

    Harsk was a bit more difficult than I expected due to the fact I couldn't quite tell in some areas where the cloth ended and armor began. (I also thought the post holding his leg up was some kind of peg leg, and I almost kept it as such.)
  12. 77397 Logrim

    Logrim was the first of the Coffee Dwarves of Agamenthar to see completion. Largely because he didn't have much skin showing. His rainment, like the rest of the Dwarves is in the traditional colors of Mawell House. His pose also speaks of one who is highly caffeinated and ready to slice Monday off at the kneecaps.

  14. Dain Deepaxe, Dwarf Warrior

    Quick painted this guy for a friend to use in our Pathfinder campaign tomorrow night. The first Dwarf I've ever painted, had a lot of fun painting this one.
  15. Herryk, Dwarf Cleric 77220

    This is one of the first minis that I have painted. Pretty proud of how it turned out, but I obviously have a lot of learning and practice ahead of me. I'd appreciate any critiques and advice! Thank you!
  16. Sculpting a dwarf (rather pic heavy)

    Hi all! First post in quite a while I've been working on a fantasy dwarf I've been sculpting from scratch. I'm shooting for something which could feasibly be cast. I'd gotten to the point that I was positioning his weapon, at which point I realized that there seemed to be too many potential undercuts, particularly around the axe head. I looked at some of Reaper's dwarves which have a similar pose, and I noted that all of them are positioned such that the axe head is well in advance of the hand, which would eliminate the under cut. I tried various attempts at re positioning the arms, but in the end I decided that a new, longer axe was going to be in order. Now I'm in a quandary though. I originally was going to give him an axe based on a Petersen type L (see below), but while fiddling around with wire I came up with the idea of giving him a two handed flail instead. These were typically agricultural implements which were at times repurposed for war, and the dwarf's clothing right now could fit with the image of being more of a farmer. I'll be posting more WiP shots as I go, but I'd love to hear people's feedback? FYI, the lack of a mustache is deliberate, I was going for something similar to Balin's look in The Hobbit. Cheers!
  17. A friend asked me to paint this and the Grand Mystic to match. I really liked this Dwarf a lot. Part of me wants to keep him.
  18. This has been a long project, but also bit of a side project. Some may remember a short Wip of the OSL Wizard way back on this forum. Alot of new things for me in this one; OSL, snow, icicles. I tried to paint some yellows and reds on the snow as light from the fireball, but it just looked wrong.. because it's a darker color than the white? I'm not intirely happy with everything, but in general I'm quite happy, but dont hesitate with critiqs! Snow is made of crushed kitty-litter mixed with white glue and white paint. Icicles is made of thin strips of clear plastic (from a mini-box), dipped in super-glue and some gloss varnish. The rocks is a pieces of bark. Comments and critiqs are most welcome!
  19. My friend found this dwarf, he thinks he got it around 2006, about eleven years ago:
  20. Forge Guardian - an ub3r Show-off

    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!
  21. Lidless Eye Hobbies vs Bones 3

    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.
  22. Ral Partha Dwarven Engineers

    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!
  23. 4561: King Axehelm of Kragmarr

    A recent miniature to get me out of my two year funk
  24. 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!
  25. Dwarf King on Throne Bones III

    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.
