  1. Funded

    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!
  2. 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).
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.....
  8. 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)
  9. 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!!!
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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 !
  17. 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!
  18. Here they are, the Stonehaven Grippli. Spearman (mounted): Spearman (dismounted): Swordsman: Archer: Potionmaker: The swordsman is mt favorite, with the archer a close second. As always, C & C welcome.
  19. 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 !
  20. 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.
  21. Alright this WIP will contain more than a few mins. Most of the time I work on one or two specific projects that have a solid deadline. I started to find that I would get burnt out doing that so I am planning on doing something different this time. While a few of these could be competition entries and a couple are gifts, I plan on working on each a little at a time so I can keep my interest renewed. So on to the victims. Starting with the top left, we have a Gotham Policeman from Knight Models. He is a present for my Dad who is a retired police officer and will be painted in a tan uniform that was worn by San Diego PD until the early 90's. It is the uniform my Dad wore on patrol up until he joined their New Technologies Unit. He has no idea that I am doing this for him and I hope I can do it justice. Next up is Reaper's Vampire Noble (3042) whom I am just painting for fun and vampire skin practice. If I get him done he might be entered in the Halloween contest. If anyone knows what the critter by his legs is, please speak up because I have no idea. The little guy next to him is Hasslefree's Albert, a cute little tyke who, like the vampire, I am painting for fun. In the next row we have Stonehaven's half-lion who is a commission for a friend. Next her is Sayna from Draconia and her base. I may do some water effect on her base but I have not decided yet. She may be my entry for the fantasy large category on our next con, if I finish in time. Lastly at the bottom, we have Reaper's Kristiana (77223) and Troll Slayer Sophie (77370). These are commissions for another friend. And finally we had the Lovers from Dark Sword. These are going to part of a small vignette that is for my parents as a late anniversary present. I apologize for the wall of text and lack of paint on the minis. I wanted to get this started before I got too far into working on them.
  22. Just one of the Stonehaven trolls to get him off my shelf of shame. It was fun playing with such large surfaces. Let me know what you think
  23. My exchange partner for the 2015 Fall Exchange was Tarsemina. Steampunk was the first thing on her list, and something I quite like myself, so from there it was just a matter of picking a Reaper fig that spoke to me. This figure is awesome, although she needs a real name, something besides, "Mad Scientist (female)" . As a proper mad scientist on the dangerous streets of London (I've been readying the background book for Infamy lately...) I thought she needs some companions. The dog is an Infernium Hound from West Wind's Empire of the Dead line. And her adorable "porter" is Stonehaven's Scrapbot (one of my favorite figs, which may be why I have so many...). The base is a 50mm cobblestone resin base, also from West Wind's EotD line.
  24. There's no major theme between this set, other than that they'd make one strange adventuring party. First off we have the LATEST version of Ajaxxus Skiotho, Tiefling Barbarian. I think he's been re-done more times than I've actually played him:
  25. My son wanted to play a titan mauler barbarian in our ongoing pathfinder campaign. So with my Stonehaven minis fresh in hand I found one that was about perfect, except for the weapon... So with a little modification this is what I produced. I enjoyed working on this mini and I like the mini itself. The sculptor does wonderful faces and the pose, while a little more display than I would like, is very appropriate for the mini. So without further display, here is Grok Gockamuc, Titan mauler. Comments and critique are always welcome. <*edit to add challenge tag*>
