  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Well, here are some proper photos of my latest completed work. Burak the dwarf from Mr. Lee's Minis. It was a fun project.
  5. ^^ 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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).
  9. Felt like something different last night and started putting paint on this guy. Gave him a snowy owl and polar bear pelt
  10. About this project Pledge now to help TAG add these two new additional packs of 28mm Dwarf Empire Bear Knights on foot to our current range, Funded here on Kickstarter 18 months ago. These 8 new original miniatures represent the Dwarf Knights of the Bear Order, all carrying huge two handed hammers. we are planning on releasing these minis in two packs, one of four ordinary Knights with hammers, and one Command pack with Dwarf Commander, Standard Bearer, Musician and a Champion. Bear Knight Champion Like our previous Kickstarter, this is something of a small Project for us, but this time the Fund Level is somewhat higher, as we have design costs to consider in the Goal. Pledge Levels. Pledge £14, for one pack of the four different 28mm size white metal models. Your choice of either the Command Pack, or the Knight Pack. 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. With such a short time scale Kickstarter as this, its difficult to add much in the way of meaningful Stretch Goals, but we'll try to cram in a couple if we can. We know Backers love Freebies and Limited Edition Kickstarter Exclusives. £1500+ Add a Freebie miniature, to all Pledges at £42+ £3000+ Add a Limited Edition 'Bear Mascot' miniature sculpted by Jon Pickford to all Pledges. Limited Edition Kickstarter Exclusives At TAG, we give away a large number of Freebie Miniatures, every Order through our Online Shopping Cart gets one added free for every £40 spent, so when we go though the £1500 mark we will add, a Dwarf Freebie, to every Pledge at the £42 Level. Bear Knight Commander If we can find time to push onto the £3000 point in the short time we have left, then we will commission to have sculpted a Limited Edition Kickstarter Exclusive Bear Mascot miniature, to add to all Backers Pledges at all Levels. These genuine Exclusives proved very popular with our Dwarf, Halfling and Zombie Kickstarter Backers, and looked great in our white-label packaging. DEM074 Dwarf Bear Knight Command on foot Shipping For ease, all shipping costs, world wide are included in the Pledge Levels. DEM073 Dwarf Bear Knights on foot with hammers Completion & Dispatch Short of any sculpting or conversion work necessary for any Stretch Goals met, this Kickstarter will be ready to deliver very swiftly.

  11. 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.
  12. Hi all. Start paint )
  13. 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
  14. 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 :-)
  15. 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...
  16. 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
  17. EDGE OF OBLIVION After many miles climbing the mountains of his homeland, Torgar the Barbarian had finally caught up to the two thieves who had stolen his family heirloom, his grandmother's axe which had been used to cut the head off the great orc chieftain Yarvak. He had found their trail and followed it through the blizzard. He was raging after he had shown them hospitality and drinks, they had slipped a drug into his drink and stolen the artifact.... Now was the time for the reckoning! "VENGEANCE SHALL BE MINE!!!!" Roared Torgar, after taking the head off the first thief and showing it to the other. "YOU HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO FLEE TO LITTLE THIEF, HERE IS YOUR EDGE OF OBLIVION!!!!" The lone dwarf dropped the artifact and realized his folly, he could jump off the cliff to his death or have his head removed from his shoulders like that of his friend... -------------------------------------------------------------------- This was a really fun project, it took me a while to get started on it and took me a couple of weeks to finish as I wanted to make it a display piece and be able to enter it into a couple of contests, one of which will be ReaperCon 2017. Torgar the Barbarian, Limited Edition 72mm resin figure from Terrible Kids Stuff Random Encounter! 54mm resin figure from FER Miniature Base scratch built out of bark and milliput along with frit and snow flock Shoutout to Thrym for putting together the placard for me! WIP HERE Thank you all for following along and your comments/critiques are greatly sought after and appreciated!
  18. I finished Hayden up this weekend and then took some glamour shots with my tripod when it arrived on Sunday afternoon (still weirds me out Amazon delivers on Sunday). Overall, pretty pleased with how she turned out. I could definitely do more to the metals to make them stand out but I'm done with her and am moving on to other projects (namely the rest of my November Challenge and the Saladin bust).
  19. Here's another group fresh off the paint table, a grouping of naughty nasty Dwarfs from Ganesha Games "Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter. I've painted them in gray skin tones, that way they can double up as Duergar, or be used as Warhammer Chaos Dwarves who are a bit far into the Curse of Stone. The whole horde: A Screaming Face Axeman: His buddy, the Glaiveman: A converted Champion, using the Possessed Champion body, Chaos Marauder Shield, a Marauder Horseman head, an axe off a Chaos Cultist Champion, and a sculpted cloak to cover up a gap, and also it was the same week PETA protested Warhammer. The Hellfire Caster: The Hellchain: The Demonslayer. This guy is actually supposed to be one of the good Dwarves aligned with the Halfling Villagers of the set, but with his demonskull hat, he seems to work as a worshiper as well. The Priestess on Hell-Disk: The Fusilier, dong his best Jawa impersonation:
  20. This time, just a duo of Dwarfettes from "Song of Blades and Heroes: The Golden Lantern Bearer: The Panther Pelter, painted up to be the pelt of a Mountain Lion instead:
  21. Dwarves At Arms is the latest Kickstarter By Macrocosom Miniatures for a range of Crusader and Norman Dwarves sculpted by Alessio Cisbani in 28mm and cast in white metal. It is a 30 day campaign, its has been funded and is working its way to the first stretch goal. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2076383099/dwarves-at-arms/description
  22. Meet Hatholda Stormforge, a firery wild magic sorceror with lots of charisma to spare! I had a hard time finding a mini for my D&D game but I think she looks like a sorc in these colors.
  23. I skipped a few steps, but I actually remembered to take a WiP shot of my set from the "Song of Blades and Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter. There's also a few Hobgoblins who I started in hopes it would motivate the delayed KS package to arrive quicker (it worked!)
  24. This is an old ChainMail Berserker that I got out of the melt bin at Reapercon. His weapon was broken, so I replaced it with a GW axe from my bits box. I almost painted him up with orange hair like a GW trollslayer, but I've actually got a few of those figures around, so I figured I'd save that paint scheme for them. I gave him a bunch of tribal style tattoos and followed the advice I got on my last tattoos and tried to blend them into the skin a little more. I think it looks better. Now, I just need to actually develop some artistic ability and my tattoos might actually start to look good.
