  1. Kickstarter is now Live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hfminis/kev-white-does-matt-dixon-female-fantasy-miniature/description From their facebook page "For those of you who have missed our newsletter teases, yes, we are dipping our toe in the Kickstarter waters. And yes it will be very soon, in fact as soon as I've finished up the last of the image work. More information will come but the basic gist is that it is for a themed set of miniatures based on Matt Dixon artwork. Not only has Matt done his usual pin-up style for us but has also helped us out with some 'Winter' variants and on top of that I've gone and ruined his beautiful art by drawing nudity over the top of it for our 'Skyclad' variants :) The Kickstarter will initially be for 4 fantasy females, each with their 3 variants (so 12 minis in total) and 'hopefully' we'll go from there. We have artwork for a number of other females, plus 1 male and a few 'add on's, so we'll see how it goes :) This is a pretty big chunk of Kev's time, hence the Kickstarter to gauge interest, and for those of you who aren't into Fantasy, don't worry, we'll be running HF as usual, including releases, while Kev is busy with Kickstarter business :)? In the comments this is supposed to start this Sunday. Not sure if ut will only be metal or if they will offer their resin ones as well.
  2. So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade. I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers. I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later. Left to right: Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero Details: The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!
  3. I started this figure to be a slightly overenthusiastic Russian bodyguard for Vampire: The Masquerade. When I finished her the GM said she would better serve as a character who is a Mage: The Ascension Void Engineer soldier, basically a space marine. This was also a slight experiment in the sort of colorless blonde character with invisible eyebrows, except I gave her really heavy eye makeup. She isn't really wide-eyed, but her blue eyes are very pale, giving a staring effect. According to Hasslefree's flavor text her two big guns are Heckler & Koch MP5Ks. A little Googling tells me that the MP5K is of German design, but also made in Iran and Turkey, and is "the ultimate close-quarters weapon, created for use in very confined spaces". From guns I know nothing, but okay. There is no WIP thread, but comments and questions are welcome.
  4. This is Hasslefree's HFA181, "Big Charles", sculpted by Kev White. I liked the realism of the sculpt and the opportunity to paint someone with black skin. I've been trying to paint more diverse minis for our games. I liked the sculpt so much I accidentally got two of him. So I painted the other up as a vampire / zombie. I finished him a little earlier and there is a thread here. Here are some comparison photos: Note that vampire "Charles" lacks a shadow: There is no WIP thread but questions and comments are welcome.

    Travelling Court of the Brownie King

    I think this is one of Hasslefree's lesser-known gems, sculpted by Mike Thorp. I am pretty sure this was originally marketed as "Travelling Court of the Unseelie King", so presumably the brownies must have staged a coup at some point.
  6. This is Hasslefree's HFA148 "Taylor", sculpted by Kev White. She has some wonderful, dynamic shapes from different angles. In the catalogue she's painted up blonde, but after I primed her I took a look at her face and thought she looked more Cambodian to me. So she's a modern Southeast Asian apocalypse survivor, or at least a young lady with a lot of attitude. There isn't a WIP thread but I would be glad to answer any questions or take comments.
  7. This is one of Hasslefree's modern adventurers sculpted by the inestimable Kev White. I tend to paint my figures in a sort of bright way (I think. It's very hard for me to see my own art style.). So I thought I would try to do justice to Kev White's dynamic and fairly realistic sculpt by trying to paint it in a more realistic style. I also welcomed the opportunity to paint someone non-caucasian and a modern mercenary type, which my gaming table is somewhat lacking in. (I realized a bit late he would be perfect for playing around with painting tattoos. Perhaps someone else can take up the challenge.) There is no WIP thread, but questions and comments are welcome.
  8. This is Hasslefree's HFA181: Big Charles, painted up as a vampire (although he could do duty for something else awful and inhuman as well, maybe a zombie). I had accidentally acquired two of him and this seemed a reasonable use for the extra one, especially since one of my GMs is running a vampire-heavy campaign. He hasn't got a shadow on purpose because vampire ... There is no WIP thread. Critiques, questions, and comments are welcome, as always.
  9. Mainly because a user asked me who made a particular miniature and I can't reload the message to answer it. These are the winter or frost versions of the adventurers in the latest Hasslefree Pin Up kickstarter. The bard (blond, cloak, staff) is called "winter erryn" by Hasslefree. I have asked on the "bones you would like to see" thread for wintery/frostgrave style Bones figures.

    Hasslefree Delphine

    Hasslefree's Delphine; a nice simple figure with bags of character. I always get pleasure and satisfaction when painting this companys' products.
  11. My oldest son loves Star Wars probably more than I do. He has 3 children - a girl and a set of twins (girl and boy). When my kids were little, every year they received an ornament in their stocking. I thought that when they grew up and flew the nest, they would have some ornaments for their own Christmas trees. I decided to do the same for my grandkids and decided to make ornaments using the Mystic Warriors from Hasslefree. I am overall happy with how they turned out. There is no photo of "Leia" in the ornament yet as I haven't put her in it!)
  12. This is Hasslefree's HFA180, Monique, part of a group of modern adventurers I've been working on. There is no WIP thread.
  13. I have some clear plastic Christmas ornaments that I am going to make little scenes and put the Mystic Warrior children from Hasslefree in for my grandkids for Christmas. So I went from painting big ol' Marthrangul to little bitty kids. (I had a dwarf mage painted in between.) So today was my paint day with a friend. I snipped them off their bars and used my friend's jeweler's drill to drill tiny little holes in their feet for pins. Their feet and legs are so tiny, my usual pinning equipment was too large. I cleaned up all their flash and mold lines, washed them, and then primed. I did their skin and faces. My grandbabies have darker complexions and I want their little Jedis to resemble them so I went with a darker skintone. I used critique from my last mini (dwarf mage) to put more contrast in the skin. I did a base, shade, and highlight and then did half steps in between for smoother blend transitions. These are the tiniest eyes I have ever painted. They are not perfect but they aren't bad and I am leaving them alone because I was happy to not blob paint all over their faces! I plan on doing the "Leia" figure in white robes. Not sure how I plan on doing the shading yet - blue, cream, grey, a little mix of surrounding environment colors. We'll see. She will have a blue "lightsaber". The other two are for the twins so I plan on brown padawan robes for them. He will have a purple "lightsaber" and hers will be green. Their hair was basecoated in P3 Umbral Umber and shaded with a mix of Umbral Umber and Reaper's Nightshade Purple. I have not begun to highlight the hair yet. I need to try out a few browns and find one that does not too closely match their skin color. Here's some photos I took tonight. C&C welcome.
  14. This is Hasslefree's HFA183 from their modern adventurers line. Our game needed some regular modern mook types, and Hasslefree is pretty good with them. I started him ages ago, but life and politics intervened. There is no WIP thread.

    Prehistoric Snapshot

    Need to work on my basing. Still, I don't think this little Hasslefree piece came out TOO badly. Cavewoman stock Hasslefree, from the recent kickstarter; dinosaur, a slightly altered plastic dino I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby; Reaper base; GF9 static grass, with flowers scavenged from a Box Of Goodwill. The tree was the hard part; I needed a prehistoric looking giant conifer, so I started with a metal rod, coated with greenstuff, and began sculpting up, layer by later, with no small effort... I'm a far worse sculptor than even I think I am... and finally, after completion, I layer painted it with a variety of browns... ...and then threw it in the trash and substituted a pine sprout from the yard instead. Sometimes the old ways are the best.

  17. Hasslefree Children - isn't that a contradiction in terms? Smurf me sideways, these are tiny!

    HF Sana

    I finally decided to call her finished. Sana is, as usual from Hasslefree Miniatures, a great sculpt. I really enjoyed painting her. Hope you enjoy my paint work on this figure. Her WIP is here.

    Hasslefree Argia Tholos

    Ahhh I tried some new things! This was one of those sculpts that I saw and immediately fell in love with. I painted her to be a major NPC on the game I'm running. I did my first ever basing on this one, using some plaster(?) and cork for the rocks, and green stuff and the runic roller from GSW for the floor. I wanted to make it look like she was in a dilapidated temple, and the patterns on the floor were glowing with magic. Any critique and comments are welcome! I'd especially love some advice on the gemstone. I'm still trying to sort out gem reflections, and I'm not 100% happy with it

    Xanthia

    I painted Xanthia from Hasslefree and am super happy with how she came out. I wanted to go with a dark skin tone. I used Reaper clears as glazes. I used Clear Purple to glaze in the shadows, clear red over the midtones and clear yellow on the highlights. It added a lot of depth and realism to her skin (I think so anyway). I wish I could post photos here but she is definitely not safe for work So if you click the links, be aware she is topless and only wearing a loin cloth for bottom coverage (which does little to cover her bottom). She might be the best mini I have painted so far. Definitely the best skin! NSFW photos in the links! Proceed with caution! Xanthia - Front View Xanthia - Back View There are also more photos of her on my Wee World Miniatures page (link below). C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!

    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.

    Kitty

    I started working on Kitty about 2 years ago. I decided to bring her along to ReaperCon where I got in the zone with her and finished her off. Lots of greens and yellows, but it's all centered around P3 Wurm Green, which is mixed into nearly everything. (I think I had just bought a pot of it right when I first started the mini). Helpful suggestions from other attendees and teachers (Cathy Wappel and Rhonda Bender in particular) definitely improved the quality. The base material is from a tub of stuff I received from Frontline Games in my swag bag.

    IMPFESTATION by Glitterwolf

    Not all was peace and quiet in the forest. Lately a group of little demons had infested the place. These Imps, Hordlings or whatever they were called, harassed the little animals, the fairies and they damaged the trees and the mushrooms. Even the Grand Mushroom watched in horror how they terrorized the Forest, but he could do nothing. One day the Imps captured one of the fairies and beat her up. She could barely escape and she fled crying. Almost leaving the forest, she came by a small dirt road, and she noticed a cart coming. Quickly she hid between the bushes. A wizard passed by, contemplating his latest spells, a cart filled with supplies. The donkey pulling the cart, was in no hurry it seemed. Slowly it passed by. The fairy looked at the cart, she sneaked into the back. The wizard didn't notice the little fairy rummaging through his supplies, he was too caught up in his spells. Suddenly the fairy noticed a bottle, the label said: Gigantic Growth. Feeling her blood rising to her cheeks she stole the bottle and hopped off the cart. She went back into the forest. The Imps saw her coming and started laughing. Clearly this one hadn't had enough! The fairy drank the potion, all of it, and in a moment she started to grow. One Imp said...this can't be good! The next moment the fairy had her revenge, she trampled the first Imp into the ground and chased the others. Even the Grand Mushroom felt sorry for the Imps now! For those interested WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71076-impfestation-by-xherman1964-mushroom-fairy-and-imps/ Components: Base - was a gift from the Awesome Knarthex!

    My Next Group of Minis (8)

    Hi Everyone, I've decided to give the WIP thread thing a 2nd try. I hope 8 isn't too many mini's to include in one thread. But now I've got this idea that I'm going to paint them in an assembly line type fashion and see how that turns out. The two mini's that I've already started on are the last two of the DGS mini's (on the right side) The two on left are both Reaper Mini's (Technic Captain & Eando Kine) I used a hobby knife to saw away at Eando's right hand until I could separate his hand from his body, then I bent his arm until it was near a 90 degree angle. I then used a pin drill to drill out a slot in his hand, so after I attach halberd I'll need to fix his hand too. The halberd is modded too, I added the spear tip by pinning on the top portion of a sword blade. I kind of wish I had some sculpty material, but it turned out okay in the end. I also added the sword/gladius to the valkyrie, I didn't know if the hilt would interfere with her shield arm so I pinned it onto the back, I kind of wish it was on the side now, but it's too late for that. Last but not least I bought 4 hasslefree mini's, I decided to try out the resin ones, these will be the first resin mini's I'll try to paint. I still have to wash these, the two mini's on the left I've already assembled, the one on the far right, I'm holding off on adding her shield until later, since it gets in the way of the face. The dwarf will also have a shield on his backside, I'm not sure if I want to attach it now or later. The last picture shows the difference in scale, the dwarf is the shortest of the Hasslefree mini's and the Ragnar looking guy is the tallest. I may have a hard time painting their eyes. So I have 3 goals in mind for these mini's they are 1) Use a lighter palate/selection of colors, all the last mini's of mine have had a very dark look, so I want these to be significantly lighter. 2) Get better at shading the weapons, I'm going to try to use color blending on the sword/axe/spear blades 3) To buy some basing material and give that a try on this round of minis (I may practice on a few old ones first). Thanks for looking, I'll be asking for some tips/advice as I proceed with these.
  25. Been taking a break from painting big dragons, and working on some stuff for my ever-ongoing Shadowrun campaign. I needed some opposition to teach my players 'professionalism', so here's Team Alpha... Mostly Hasselfree, and as always my photography is terrible :) And, some group shots: I'm just noticing now how dark these are... I need to figure out white balance!!!
