  1. So, one of my personal mini projects atm is working on some of the NPCs my players in my homebrew campaign are encountering. And one of my favorite groups in that world are the Hunts - a loose-bound organization of groups (each called a Hunt) of fighters/mercenaries/warriors, each with their own specialty, who dedicated themselves to maintaining the roads and paths of Fidel during the millenia-long anarchy of the Mortal Wars. Now, what makes the Hunts distinctive from any other mercenary bands? Well, they ride BADASS FLYING MOUNTS. Gryphons, for the most part, although one or two specialize in pegasi, and a few ride more esoteric things... Four NPCs intimately intertwined with the group are members of the Red Hunt - a sort of catch-all for powerful, destructive mages. Faukner, her apprentices Formel and Tiercel, and her wife, Charr. So, I've had the Stonehaven Half-Dragon Duelist for ages. It's one of my favorite dragonborn minis, and I decided it'd be perfect for the swashbuckling Charr... It's a great mini, neat and clean with tons of personality. To give you an idea of who Charr is... Anyways, I've decided to do a WIP of this set of minis, starting with Charr's two forms. This is the thread for her humanoid form, obviously - I'm painting up the Temple Dragon for her dragonness form, and I'll try to do a WIP for that, too. So! I started off nice and simple - hit the face with some red, and decided on a blue-and-white scheme for the cloths. I'm trying to bring out some of the swashbuckler in this mini, so I like the naval colors. That said, I could use ideas for the cravat. Ordinarily, I'd paint my dragonborn's hair simularly to her scales and try to ignore it, but gonna go with dark for these dreads. They're sweet as hell. Wish DSM would give us a KS for these. And there's the face, pretty much finished, TBH! I washed it with Games Workshop's purple wash, pretty heavily so it'd sit well in the mouth and scale cracks, and then highlighted just with pure red. This is a proof-of-concept for the temple dragon, as well as a mini on it's own, and I'm pretty happy with it! Used Palimimo Gold for the eyes - something else that'll carry over!
  2. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Eastern Legends

    Another set complete! This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters. Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas. She's from Stonehaven. The group: The Oni: The Kitsune. The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand until I started painting! That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt. Just some Human Monks: The Kenku/Tengu: This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures: Flock!
  3. Tengu Mage - Stonehaven

    I liked that he was small for a tengu. The asian style and those wooden platform shoes are pretty nifty too. He just popped out at me and I had to paint him. Cute redhead with her measuring stick for scale.
  4. Stonehaven's Halfling Commander

    Stonehaven's mounted characters are great. The small mounts are all a common size, so you can put any character on any mount. But they're also the right size for another kind of mount... edit: and looking at these pictures now, I see a few mistakes that I need to go fix. Sigh.
  5. Tropical Raptors

    So my fiancee challenged me to paint some miniatures. It's a thing she will be doing more often. The rules was: She picks the minis and the style. She chose two medium Raptors from Stonehaven Miniatures and told me to paint them like tropical birds. This is what I came up with.
  6. StoneHaven Adventurers 2017

    Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before. Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout, Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown. Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.
  7. Stonehaven Elf Mage

    Next up is one of the better figure that I have painted of late. I painted this figure up to represent a wizard for Frostgrave. As this particular figure has a Native American vibe to it, I went with buckskins fo the clothing. All buckskin was too bland for her male counterpart so I added the blue to her outfit to help break it up. I carried over the blue to her eyes, the crystal on the staff and the gem in her circlet. I like how the hair came out. I kept messing up her left eye and finally gave up when it didn't look too bad. (believe me it looked plenty worse before).
  8. Christmas gift with frog and chicken.

    It started last year, when stonehaven offered a feathered dinosaur and a frog knight. I decided to make a diorama of one of my wife's fav jokes. Since it involved a library, it would be perfect for her to keep on her desk at work. the frog knight didn't work out, so I got a different frog from reaper. I got as far as priming, and starting a base-coat on the "chicken". In December, kicked the project into high gear. WIP The Joke
  9. So.. While waiting for the water to cure itself on the nymph's base,I found this little guy begging paint. I couldn't resist he's so cute, and he practically painted himself so far. Of course he wanted to be a garden gnome and because he's a garden gnome he needed a tree house. For the tree form I used some paperclip and thinner brass wire and then globbed lots of greenstuff onto it for a solid form.. I made the door separate on my flat hobby mat, scored it and let it cure then attached it. I need to fill out the tree more and fix the door into the tree, widen the trunk and add some more.
  10. Stonehaven half orc thief

    So here is finally my Stonehaven half orc thief. Got him finished last night. Wanted muted colors, so blacks, greys, purples and blues. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  11. Stonehaven's Giants

    I saw that Stonehaven just launched another kickstarter! Stonehaven's Giants Huge Humanoids and Creatures for your adventurers to encounter and to bulk out your RPG dungeon or tabletop wargame armies!
  12. Stonehaven halforc bard and fighter

    So finally got these two finished, the two females first, and now I've got the two males pending to finish. One thing I'm a bit miffed at was that I didn't plan the grass well, so you actually can't see her delightfully painted toenails. Oh well, next time.....
  13. Stonehaven half orcs

    So here are my next four figures and being I did a WIP for the last Stonehaven figures I painted, I might as well do another. So here are the four I chose.
  14. So, many moons agone I backed Stonehaven's Kickstarter for pop-up terrain. Slightly fewer moons agone, I backed their next Kickstarter for halflings - which also included pop-up terrain. And a couple of days ago, I realized that it would cost me quite literally half as much to buy a new inkjet printer as it would to get replacement cartridges for my clunky old printer. By all of these elements combined, I figured the time had come to start assembling the pop-up terrain I had so eagerly anticipated. I started about as simply as possible - with the grassy field. Lessons were learned, not least of which that I have no idea what I'm doing and barely the necessary coordination required... but somehow, I muddled through and made a passable hex. I added in the pond, to make it a little more interesting (and because it was there). There were a few bits and bobs left over, so after rereading the original thread we had on the pop-up kickstarter, I decided to see how coloured pencil would work with the sepia print. I think, when things have dried, I'm going to colour in at least the pond... probably not the whole field, but a blue pond should stand out nicely. I have others to print, and a complete set of the pre-printed, colour terrain. Watch this space for further developments.
  15. Stonehaven Treant

    When I got my Stonehaven Halfling Adventurers Kickstarter miniatures, I wanted to paint the treant right away. It was an easy and fun miniature to paint, and I was happy how it turned out. I plan to make a special base for him but for now used the one that he came with.
  16. That is a group of Elves, right? A Frolicking? First, we have the full frolicking: Then, Lord Snootypants, a Paladin of some renown (a Warhammer Swordmaster Champion) His associate, Sir Be'tar Tanu (a repainted Mage Knight piece, though I believe the sculpt is originally an Elf General by Ral Partha) Some Elf hippie chick (from Dwarf Wars, I believe) Next, a hippie...with a bow! (Reaper Bones) Dai'rai, actually a character piece for my ongoing Isle of Dread campaign, a Mystic of the Half-Elven persuasion (converted from Stonehaven's Elf Raider) And, the most important Elf of them all, the Royal Pastromancer, Laird Keeb'lar (Stonehaven's Elf Baker) (Apologies for the blurriness, I attempted to bypass the storm preventing outside photos by doing color correction, and it seems to have messed with some of them)
  17. Leif Rawkinson

    Hey everyone! I feel like such a slacker with my painting lately, but I'm trying hard to get back to full speed! (I realize I said this last time... but, it turns out that I'm getting the wife into the hobby as well, and that makes for more painting time! ) My new job has some blocks on the Reaper Forums, so it'll be hard for me to keep up with things like I used to, but I will try my best to get back involved with the friendliest painting community there is! Anyway, here's my rather rockin' conversion of Stonehaven Miniature's Dwarf Bard: I have loved this mini since I first backed the Kickstarter years ago but haven't managed to paint him until now! Nevertheless, I'm happy I waited until my skills had improved! As always, thanks a bunch for looking!!!
  18. This mini has been sitting on my shelf for a while waiting for the right opportunity to show itself. because it is supposed to be coming out of the ground it requires a diorama and I have not be really up to putting a lot of work into my figures. but then I got Gundyloo as my exchange partner and this piece called out to me. The gnome was also originally supposed to be fighting the horror but then it fell in the mouth and stuck in one of the gaps in the horrors teeth and so a truly desperate situation was born. I decided to use a color scheme similar to the original bullette in D&D (blue with a silver land fin) and I tried to make his texturing pop. His eyes are rather small for such a large mini but I like the way they came out. Anyway, thanks for looking. C&C is always welcome, in particular how I might highlight higher without making the whole mini lighter.
  19. Stonehaven elven gunslinger

    one of the Stonehaven line while we wait for the halflings to show up. this was a character for me in a short lived pathfinder campaign. This is one for more active stonehaven minis and I like the delicate features of the elf here. Enjoy!
  20. Half Orc Fighter - halforc000002

    I was reading an article about learning, and it said that you only learn when you are uncomfortable !!! Well, I have been uncomfortable since I started this mini. I honestly had NO idea what a half orc was, how to paint it, How to base it, or what to do with it ! ROFL. So I just started painting up a color scheme, then I saw the bracelet.. Female ?? Maybe... So that changed a few things. Then I just decided go for it, be uncomfortable, and do something different. Well, Its different. I mixed all my own colors, and just went for the Gusto. Oh.. the rock is a chunk of tree bark ! (Like I said, something new for the basing). So, Here is the Female Half Orc Fighter by Stonehaven. Your C&C's are greatly appreciated, and desired. Please let me know what you think.. I added a better photo showing her from a straight on view. Now you can see her face. Jay
  21. Stonehaven Elf Archer

    So I've had this one finished already for a while but never got him posted. One of the other Stonehaven figures I have, got him painted up and finished. Once again, can't say enough how much I enjoy painting these. They got a bit of heat for being "flat", but that, plus their decent sizes make them relatively simple and enjoyable to paint
  22. Elia Morningsong. - SHD15

    I wasn't expecting this to be as challenging as it became. The changing weather had a lot to do with the capability of my hands to do what I wanted. I spent a lot of time painting this piece, and also working out how I was going to present it. Its tons of fun to do, and once you get it done, then you have to figure out how to base it !! Therein lies the rub. so here is my interpretation of Elia Morningsong and her pet fox. "Elia descended into the meadow as she went to visit the land of humankind once more". In the meadow she touched the shrubs, the plants, the earth, and the trees. Wherever she caressed the plants, the earth burst into bloom, and she brought the joy of spring to the Earth. Here is Elia Morningsong, Bringer of joy, and Spring to the Earth. i didn't like the distance on the photos, so I took some close ups so you can see the mini better. This should give you a better feel of what it looks like. Your comments are appreciated !
  23. Stonehaven Elves

    So, just got the bases finished up on my Stonehaven elves. Out of the five I've been working on, got four of them done and here they are! I'm in a pretty good mood because even though the initial photographed seemingly turned out yellowish and odd, I was able to just hit the Color button on the editing function and they cleared up to very close to their actual photos. I've been painting Ral Partha figures forever and a day, and this was the first time in a while I've moved over to a different brand, and I really enjoyed painting these figures. One of the nice things about these were the size. I'm not going to lie, bigger is easier. I've got another elf I'm working on, still in the WIP, and once I get him done, I'll go back to painting more Partha stuff. But in the meantime, enjoy!
  24. Bloodknuckle Grymm - SHD17

    This is the first Stone Haven Miniature I have painted. It was a blast to do. I had a lot of fun playing up the comical part of the miniature. Its just a fun sculpt to paint. Small, but lots of character. Just the smile with the little teeth, and then ability to put some character in the piece made my day. Hope you appreciate the Dwarf Berserker.! Let me know what you think !
  25. So after a long stretch of Partha orcs and goblins, I'm taking a petite break and working on some Stonehaven elves I got and a few Partha pieces for a bit of variety. I put one photo of them all together so you can see the size difference between the Stonehaven pieces and the Partha ones. One thing I really like about the Stonehaven elves is their size. Makes painting eyes easier.
