    1/72 Elves and friend

    I’ve been chipping away at the 1/72 scale fantasy project this morning, with three Caesar elves and a Maid Marion from the old (sculpted in 1964) Airfix Robin Hood set. Assuming I get them based by Sunday, this would bring me up to 33 figures for the month. It hasn’t been too bad, considering all the Christmas hurly-burly.

    Feral Elves by Westfalia

    A new kickstarter from the folks at Westfalia coming in August. An interesting and somewhat different take on elves.
  3. The project I've been working on for the past two weeks: Ariel and Orion, queen and King of the wood elves from Warhammer fantasy setting. Their background is quite simple actually, clearly inspired on Titania & Oberon of the fey people. Ariel is a mage, Oberon is the hunter. I decided to paint them with opposite schemes: Ariel with an autumn palette (the flow of her dress made me regret it many times: it could have looked great in blue) and Orion with an spring one. Both are classic characters from Warhammer. Both metal models. Ariel's is really old: probably around 4th-5th edition; there was also an Orion model back then, but mine is the rework from 8th edition. While Ariel's original model shows its era aesthetics but it's still appealing, I thought Orion's original model was outdated and not that good. While painting them, Orion took a lot more time (a lot more), since it has a lot more detail.

    Kristof's Elven Catapult

    So @Zink's thread here... ...inspired me to try my hand at creating an Elven catapult with Fusion 360 and my printer. Rather than hijack his thread anymore, it's time to create its own thread. I'm not anywhere near done, but I went ahead and printed out a prototype of my design so I could get a better feel for things and tweak it. Here is Sir ForScale checking over the construction so far: I'm glad I decided to print out a prototype now. I found that my tolerances are too tight for some of the assembly, and that I need to fix how the center piece goes in. I could probably merge it all into one piece, and print it as a single piece, or maybe two, but I am trying to keep the pieces fairly flat so that it can be mailed in an envelope. Trying to figure out what elven looking wheels without spokes would look like, as I think spoked wheels might be too delicate to print at this size
  5. I cleaned up my painting space this weekend, which made it much more inviting: So, with my significant other off on a business trip early this morning, there was little to keep me from queuing up the podcasts and painting as long as I could stand it. I finished a couple of vintage TSR Star Frontiers ships, for generic SF usage: In the vintage SF line, I also did a simple paint scheme on two Grenadier Traveller Imperial Marines, acquired fairly recently from eBay: I had these two Airfix Robin Hood figures started at Thanksgiving. According to the Plastic Soldier Review, these figures were originally released in 1964. While the mold has been in production fairly recently, I noted, from the color of the plastic, that these two are ones that have been in my possession since time immemorial (i.e., sometime around 1972-4), which is a long time to wait to be painted: These Caesar 1/72 elves are a command stand for my fantasy mass battles using Hordes of the Things rules: They’ve been waiting a while, too. My younger son made the gonfalon for me, topped by an earring we found in the parking lot at the ice rink. He retired from skating in 2012, and I’m glad the muses were finally with me today on this project. 10 figures, 8 from primer out...
  6. Hi all, after much lurking I've decided to post some of my minis I technically posted once before but I just realized looking at the old post that it was over a year ago! I'm really going to have to pick up my painting rate given that another bones pledge is about to be delivered! So I can definitely tell I like painting the bad guys better than the PC characters, probably due to spending too much time DMing. Anyway, here's some recent ones I painted. As always feedback is appreciated! First a couple beastmen from the Warlord line: How about a golem and some undead as tomb guardians? I diced up a skeleton into the base of the bone fiend too. You can kind of see the boot. I have painted some character figures as well recently. Here's a few Elves with an Halfling. I need to work on my faces more though. Humanoid faces are so much flatter than monsters'. Anyone have any tips for varying humanoid flesh or adding details to faces that that sculp might not define well? Thanks! Much appreciated!
  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/resin-rolljordan-necro-and-volmarian-dwarf-fantasy WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT? This KickStarter is a joint venture between Royal Art Games and Impact! Miniatures to bring two incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams from Rolljordan into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models. The resin versions of these models will be molded from the re-touched masters that Rolljordan produced to make this a better more pitch-worthy team than when it was first released. The miniatures will be offered in Standard team which have everything you need to have a full team and Deluxe versions that will give you sideline characters (like cheerleaders) and star players. The KickStarter is bringing the Necro Undead and Volmarian Dwarf teams into resin. The KickStarter is also offering the teams from the last joint venture KickStarter at great prices. Here are the team and pack selections for the KickStater. The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack The miniatures in the four teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this year that is stronger and able to be painted much easier than our past resin. The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and some assembly (although many of the models are one piece). Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence. We are keeping this KickStarter small and focused so that we can quickly produce the teams and get them shipped out on time. NOTE on shipping: Shipping options are displayed when you pledge for a reward. Shipping is free to the USA, $5 to Canada and $10 to all other locations.
  8. I'm digging into my Old School collection this weekend, with this batch of old Minifigs. I have the rather odd VFW19, armored woodlouse (aka sow bug), and a group of 18 elves from the Mythical Earth range. I believe the MEs were the first commercial fantasy range. They're certainly where my collection started back in 1974. 8 more to finish, still on sticks in the back, 6 down so far this weekend, and 4 from a previous session. After that, I have to decide how to base them, probably for use routinely with Dragon Rampant.

    Gamer Cake Topper

    I've made quite a few different cake toppers for some of the videogame fans out there. A lot of them prefer to feature the bride and groom holding videogame controllers or such, but sometimes we go a bit further. Here are a few cake toppers featuring elven bride and grooms that I've really come to enjoy. As with all the cake toppers I've made, these are completely custom built and customizable- the couple chose the poses and all the details.
  10. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/241045416/heroes-of-arinoth-fantasy-miniatures?ref=category_newest About this project Over 500 years ago, one mysterious individual succeeded in uniting all of the peoples of the lands of Arinoth for a common goal, and became the first king of Arinoth. Vicious orcs fought alongside majestic elves, and powerful lords of the undead stood by human magi. For centuries, these races joined together to fend off foreign invaders. But this peacetime was not built to last… The king having been found dead and his legendary artefacts disappeared, the leaders of each race began to tear one another apart, accusing their neighbors of staging a coup in an attempt to take the king’s powers for themselves. Now, they prepare themselves to wage an unforgiving war against former allies… The project:  The goal of this project is to fund a new line of fantasy miniatures: elves, orcs, and other peoples from the world of Arinoth. A game is currently in development, to be released at the end of 2017. Making a pledge to this project is your chance to get a sneak preview of its resin figurines, including exclusive miniatures that will not be available outside of this Kickstarter campaign. Pledge levels: Suggested pledge: Suggested pledge Plus get the exclusive Mo’nik figurine, only available through this Kickstarter! Mo'nik - Kickstarter exclusive miniature! Starter packs: Starter pack Dark seeker Starter pack Alaria Starter pack Chol'pif Starter pack Deb'uire The races: Elven Alliance: The convergence of four former elven enclaves, the Elven Alliance has become a powerful and prosperous nation.. Dark Seeker, Keeper of the Flame, Tracker Commander: An important general in the Elven Army, this former elven Dark Lord is an impressive warrior, in addition to being an excellent sorcerer in close combat. Respected by his warriors, he enjoys displaying his superiority by defying and killing his adversaries in grim and miserable duels. Queen Alaria, High Priestess of the Moon: Previously Queen of the High Elves, Alaria has since become Queen of the entire Elven Alliance. High Priestess of the Moon, she is one of the best Healers in the kingdom, and was one of the former king’s closest advisers. Now, Queen Alaria has accused the orcs of treachery, and is set on retrieving the king’s powers to eliminate the Orc Warchiefs and restore peace to the Arinoth kingdom. Orc Tribes: Although since the reunification there is now a single Orc Chief, the orcs are still split into clans, each with its own special characteristics and skills to bring to the horde. Chol'pif, High Shaman of the Vol’kar Clan, Hordechief: Chol'pif was “elected” Hordechief, after having killed all of his opposition. This powerful Shaman was the military adviser to the king, and was always on the front lines, instilling fear and courage in his warriors. He claims the innocence of his clan, and accuses one of the Dark Lords of the Undead. He would like to possess the king’s powers in order to wipe out their entire population. Deb'uire, Mountain Orc, Iron Clan Warchief: Deb'uire is the horde’s champion, its most powerful warrior. If he wanted to, he could undoubtedly take control. But he would rather be in the thick of battle alongside his loyal soldiers than seated around a table negotiating. He trains the Lava Orcs, some of the horde’s best warriors, himself. Other important characters: Dark Lord Xan'Thaal, Death Knight: He is one of the most powerful Dark Lords of the Undead. This imposing warrior is also an excellent necromancer. Formerly the king’s siege warfare adviser, as the undead are experts in the art of laying siege. Many Arinothiens believe that it was he who assassinated the king. He has always claimed it untrue, yet without naming another guilty party… Mo'Nik, Master Healer of the Vox Clan: The Vox Clan is a group of monks living far from other civilizations. Mo’Nik is one of the Master Healers of this clan, specializing in herbalism. Numerous adversaries have been conquered in duels, having underestimated her small size. And many more... Chol'pif Deb'uire
  11. So here he is the final piece to the set I've been working on, an old Ral Partha AD&D set from the nineties, the Drow Elf assassin. and here: is the whole set and as a reminder the other three individually: Enjoy!

    Sharkbelly's Projects

    Hey all, I thought I'd start a thread to share some of the other things that I have been painting. I started painting models around 25 years ago, mostly to be used for D&D. In the late 90s, though, I got introduced to Warhammer. I eventually painted up three big armies (Empire, Ogres, and Undead) but it was pirates and the nautical theme that really grabbed me. I am working on six smallish armies of Warhammer or Age of Sigmar, but I have also added lots of terrain and other models from Reaper. Here is a quick pic of a bunch of the models and terrain. I can go into more details later.
  13. So my older son was up for a visit this weekend with some gaming. After yesterday's Saga and Frostgrave games, we finished up this morning with a "traditional" game of Hordes of the Things (Wargames Research Group, 1991), which was one of the first wargames he learned to play. Since he was in middle school, we have generally played with 1/72 scale plastics, and, as an adult, he's quite adept at painting them. So, when we were done, I was inspired to dig through my boxes of projects set aside, and work up a couple of elves. (He drew up a campaign map a few years ago; I was assigned elves, but haven't painted any lately...since I had the few I have on the table today: it made sense to work on a few...) So, not yet based, but shown here with Sir Forescale to show how small they are, a Caesar unarmored elf swordsman and one of the ~5 poses of unarmored archers they have: Since my bench is too messy to actually use right now these were done at the kitchen table with my travel paint kit of limited palette colors. I did use a pair of good brushes rather than my travel brushes (to save wear and tear) and my optivisor. Some of the autumn cloak had been done previously.

    Old, Mid, New Elves.

    So, since I was procrastinating on making my base for Rasia I decided to start prepping some more figures to paint. After see 72Moonglum paint up some old partha's I decided to work on another of mine. Here is stage one of my 3 stage elf collection: I then decided why not finaly paint up one of my Chainmail Elves. Also why not add a newer one to round out the generations, Reaper's Amiryth Elmlighter.
  15. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hidden-dreams-sylvan-elves-miniatures-fantasy#/ Hidden Dreams presents a line of Sylvan Elves fantasy miniatures in 28mm scale cast in high quality resin. Miniatures are compatible with Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age. Use them on your battlefields. Join us to develop them.
  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. He is from the Thunderbolt Mountain set #8046, Wood Elf Huntsman w/ Dogs. Like all Thunderbolt Mountain figures they are sculpted by Tom Meier, the legendary talent behind Ral Partha. The set includes two dogs; I painted four of them up here. The wood elf huntsman comes with empty hands and a bow, a sword, and a beautiful curling hunting horn. This is the first time I have glued things into hands and it took a lot of fiddling. The site claims these are 30mm but I don't think they are even 28mm. They are very delicate compared to Reaper elves and their faces (and eyes!) are impossibly tiny, albeit beautiful. I painted him quite dark because I've done enough pale elves for the moment. For now he is primed with white and washed with Burnt Umber. I nearly finished his base because I painted it at the same time as the hounds. His face includes complex blends of Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Red Oxide, and Titanium White. His eyes and brows are pure Carbon Black.
  18. These are from the Thunderbolt Mountain set #8046, Wood Elf Huntsman w/ Dogs. The set includes two dogs, but you can buy extras. The hunstman (not painted yet) comes with three weensy accessories to choose from: a bow, a sword, and a beautiful curling hunting horn. The site claims these are 30mm, but if so they are the tiniest 30mm figures I have ever seen, small even next to the smaller Reaper elves. These hounds are big, real Irish wolfhounds, compared to the Thunderbolt Mountain figures and reasonable dog-sized compared to Reaper figures. Be that as it may, they are sculpted by the legendary Tom Meier and are just gorgeous. I painted them up as part of Inarah's Memorial Day Paint Binge Challenge. The white one is in the memory of a beloved childhood pet.
  19. While shopping in my local Dollar Tree store this week, I noticed these spirograph-like party favors that had some unusual gears in them. I thought I'd do a quick post here just to give folks a heads-up. The gears come in two sizes and you get four in each pack. They looked very naturalistic to me, like something an Elf might carve or create. I'm not sure what I will use these for, but thought they'd be a good thing to have tucked away for just the right project. I think they'd look really cool painted up like wood. I know some of you could probably make use of them for bases, or part of a scenic base. As I look at them, I also realize they might also serve as machinery for some sort of alien or other weird tech.

    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

    03566: Valloa, Elf Thief

    Looks like I forgot to post this little beauty from the year-end Conga Line of Doom. This is Julie Guthrie's Valloa, Elf Thief, SKU 03566 from Reaper. Something happened to my original set of photos. These were taken after she was varnished and she is a little satin-finished, making it a little harder to see the painted shiny leather effects. I really like this figure.
  22. These are some exquisite wood elves by Tom Meier, legendary founding sculptor for Ral Partha who has in the intervening decades honed his craft to an astounding degree. These are Thunderbolt Mountain #8042 Wood Elf Lord, #8043 Wood Elf Lady, #8044 Wood Elf Noble in Traveling clothes, and #8045 Wood Elf Noble Lady in Traveling clothes. A few things: The site says they are 30mm scale, but if so they are really tiny. They are based on pennies. Here they are between some Reaper figures (03566: Valloa, Elf Thief and 77131: Finaela, Pirate) for comparison: I feel these elves look more like high elves than wood elves. I feel strongly that the Wood Elf Noble in Traveling Clothes is meant to be holding something in his outstretched hand, a spear or a sword perhaps. The Wood Elf Lady is more plump than is standard, and looks wonderful. The lord and lady have bird-shaped crowns embracing the backs of their heads. The amount of exquisite detail is staggering. The faces are so tiny and so realistic I did not even attempt to paint detailed eyes, just suggestions. Photos behind spoiler tags. #8042 Wood Elf Lord #8043 Wood Elf Lady #8044 Wood Elf Noble in Traveling clothes #8045 Wood Elf Noble Lady in Traveling clothes Ancient WIP here. Year end finishing up minis thread here.

    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. 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.

    14453

    Heya Got inspired this weekend. I present for your viewing the Elven Hunting "Cat" 14453. I am not sure how I am going to base the army hence the just brown base. I'm going for a fantasy look on this force, it's for my Spawn. She wants dragons and magic looking things. Hence the color.. This was a fun paint. I like painting beasties.. There are colorations of his fur, but cell phone cameras being what they are and missing lightbox. Excuse the bad photos..
