  1. Although there was a tragic sealant malfunction, I managed to save the first set of minis I've completed in some time using some tips and tricks...and having a better can of sealant available to fix the foggies. Since I am still running Storm King's Thunder, I thought the first minis from the Kickstarter I would paint should be the Giants of Bones 3. First, we have the whole lot, with Sir Forscale striking a pose. Then, we'll just get frosty: The King: The Queen (clearly the one in charge) A Frost Giant standing guard: A more eager Giant: Then, we heat things up with the Fire Giants! The King says, "That knight went that way!" A Warrior pursues. I removed the spiked ball and chain from his belt...I wasn't a big fan of that look. I left the bases as a decoration. Another Fire Giant guard stands by, in case Forscale returns. The Jailor stands by, awaiting the Knight's return in chains. You may notice the Fire Giant Queen is missing...I thought she was too similar to the original, and wanted to convert her to a more active pose, since Bones are so much easier to cut. She's been set aside for now. Overall, I think the recovery process from the sealer foggies went well. Looking at the photos, the process de-flocked their bases more than anything, which I'll fix. Eventually.
  2. To add to the number of projects I'm falling behind on, I picked up the new 40k boxed set, "Dark Imperium": I'm really liking what I've seen for the new 40k, and although I haven't gotten a real game in in a long time, I've played Nurgle Chaos Space Marines for a long time. It's really cool to seem Marines the size they're supposed to be. I skipped over assembly photos, and went straight to the drybrushed armor. I think there's some shoulders and skin done in this photo, too: I haven't even primed the Poxwalkers yet. I already have a ton of modern/sci-fi zombie types, and while I do plan on using the new sculpts, I want to convert the second half a bit before I paint them. You can see my previous project, the poor Cave Goblins (of The Hobbit films), literally pushed to the side. I may work on them as a co-project, as they would make great Poxwalkers!
  3. Another recent project, some of the cave Goblins from The Hobbit's "Escape from Goblin Town" boxed set. I had been looking for a set after getting Nord Game's "Revenge of the Horde" 5E monster manual. Their obviously Peter Jackson inspired designs inspired me in turn: A friend is planning a move and trying to downsize his collection, so his "Escape from Goblin Town" became mine. Here's the first few: And a close-up. I may make them a bit more pallid: cave a.bmp
  4. One benefit of our unplanned and sudden move is that we will finally have a hobby room. The first few displays were moved over first: Then came a lot more of the mess: Shelves have been set up, and a folding table arrived from Amazon: An older end table has been drafted as a paint and build station: Once it's finished up, I'll have to take shots of the whole set-up, but there's still a bit left to go.
  5. Up next is a hideous horde of Hobgoblins, from Ganesha Games "Song of Blades and Heroes: Hammer & Forge" line. There would be a Hobgoblin Mistcaller accompanying them, but the dogs decided to hide him instead... The horde, with Sir Forscale as a guest/hostage: The Khan: An ambidextrous heroine: Some archers: The rest of the grunts: I can say these are the first miniatures in a while I've painted for a specific game night. I finished them about an hour before my players arrived...and of course they explored all the areas of Grudd Haug EXCEPT those manned by the Hobgoblins.
  6. And here we have the last group of miniatures from my recent paint sessions, a village of Halflings from Ganesha Games, for their "Song of Blades and Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" set. The backdrop itself came from the Kickstarter as a game mat, and I'm finding it quite useful for photo-taking! Even if I don't play a 3'x3' game any time soon, I'll have gotten plenty of use out of it. First, we have the whole village, also with Sir Forscale as emergency backup: The most important member of any Halfling grouping, the Cook: The Trapper: The Adventurer, who was an unreached concept in their first KS, "Fightin' Fungi" and one of my favorite of the group: The Assassin: The Village Leader, who I think would make a great Halfling Paladin for a D&D session. I only notice his helmet injury now that I've uploaded this photo and put him in storage with the other Halflings...woops! The set's Halfling Mage. I think he would make a great Monk as well...his pose makes him look like he's about to give out a serious beatdown. Just an Archer: Hungry Jack, who is probably the best concept. It's a tough choice for my favorite of this set of Halflings. I'll need to paint up the old Warhammer Dwarf Adventurer on stilts to keep him company:
  7. 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:
  8. 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:
  9. These two were just left out of my group painting of the "Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts" set.
  10. 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!)
  11. I actually finished this guy a few weeks back, but I didn't have a good set up to take photos of larger miniatures. Then, I realized the recently arrived game mat from Ganesha Games "Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter would make a great backdrop for the larger pieces. So, here's the Storm Giant Royal Guard from Gale Force 9's "Dungeon & Dragon Collector's Series". Feel the thunder, friends.
  12. Last off the table, a group of Reaper Miniatures ordered during the 12 Days of Reaper promotion. I tried to stick to minis who will see use not just in Christmas themed adventures. The full group: Jakob Knochengard, who will likely see the table as a Witch Hunter for Mordheim: Nick the Holiday Rogue: The Yule Treant: Hecklemeyer, Undead Jester: Tinker the Gnome (I tried for a Disney Gepetto scheme on him)
  13. Fresh off the paint table, some Rogues from the Stars from...well, "Rogue Stars". They're very retro, and would definitely work for "Slipstream" or "Rogue Stars" as well. The assembled Rogues: The Captain (though he strikes me as more of a Rogue Trader: The Rogue: The Lionman: Sniper-Bot: The Floyd-Bot: Big Bot: The Dominar...er, Crime Lord: Security Officer: The Pirate: Turtle-Turle:
  14. Another recently finished project, some Halfling Wizards from Midlam Miniature's Kickstarter. The full school: The Headmistress: The Archmage (with an attempted theme at a mushroom themed outfit) The Scrollbearer: The Junior Alchemist: The Junior Druid:
  15. Slightly delayed as I had to work on editing the photos, here's the last of my recently arrived miniatures, the Barbarians that came with Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts. First, the full might of the horde: The Crowmaster, sans crow: The Templar, who I thought resembled Tormund from Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire: The Javelineer: And some solo shots of the plastics.
  16. So, I have flocking, sealing, and glossing left to do, but it looks like I've made a dent in all my end of the year Kickstarter arrivals, expected or not: This includes: Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts, Oathsworn: Heroines in Sensible Shoes, RPE: Dwarf Veterans, Midlam: Wizard Apprentices, TAG: Halflings, and some other odds and ends I've just opened a package from Midlam of Halfling Wizards and Apprentices, so I better wrap these up soon...I think there's also some more Halflings and Chaos Dwarves due soon from Ganesha Games. I may have a problem...
  17. This trio may not have come from a Kickstarter, but they went into the factory line at the same time as my November Kickstarter paint projects. It's just a group of low-lives styled after those in "The Witcher" video game series, heavily converted. The crate in the group shot came in my ReaperCon swag bag.
  18. The earliest arrival of my Kickstarter bounty, we have an adventuring group of ladies in sensible shoes (and clothing), and some of their companions and rivals. They may see Frostgrave, they may see Faerun, they may just see a shelf, who knows? The party: The Half-Orc Cleric. I had suggested during the campaign she would also make a suitable Bounty Hunter holding up a wanted poster...I went that route. I regret not trying to draw Flynn Rider, but I never get his nose right. The Barbarian Queen: Tiefling Warlock: Witch or washerwoman Monk: Paladin: Noblewoman: Brigand. He must be after the shoes. Dwarf Queen: Thief
  19. Fresh from the Kickstarter forges, here's another set: The Wizard Apprentices from Midlam Miniatures. First, the graduating class of 2016 (if they all make it): The ever-cautious Explodio: The scholarly Bookwrym: The Terrific Toadini! I've also been told he resembles some Presto character from an unknown 80s cartoon show. The studious Scrollux: My favorite of the set, the hexing Hattrix! I decided to go with more of a Fantasia theme rather than my original idea of "Simon the Sorcerer" The screwy Sanloss!
  20. Yesterday, I wrapped up the final touches on quite a few miniatures that arrived via Kickstarter this November. I thought the first gallery should be the simplest, and it's just a few of the promo pieces from TAG's recent "Halfling Rooster Riders" project. First, we have the Drunken Halfling Bard, who I have been wanting since his green first went up as a fan project: And a Dwarf Floozy to accompany him:
  21. Some more minis, this time of the shorter variety, that arrived from Kickstarters I've backed. November was a busy month for my mailman! This set is the Dwarf Veterans Warband from Ral Partha Europe. They seemed to have a particularly frosty city in mind with their design philosophy. Dwarf Brewmaster/Apothecary. This is one of my favorite Dwarf sculpts to date Snorri, the Ginger Ninja: Dwarf Ranger. "Real Dwarves wear hoods, Mr. Jackson!" Sonja the Shieldmaiden (one of my suggestions during the Kickstarter campaign! Well, not Dwarf Sonja, but a Shieldmaiden) This puts my Red Sonja parodies to actual Red Sonja minis at a 2:1 The Wizard's Apprentice (though he looks like a perfectly capable Wizard to me) I'm really glad RPE went with my suggestion of making the Thugs real low-class criminal types. There's not many of those that aren't full-on Chaos Dwarves. These fit the bill for brigands and the like perfectly. Another total. brute, completely untrustworthy. Must be an expert second-story man. Crossbowman (Crossbowdwarf?), with totally fab hair. I hadn't noticed his thumb until after I edited the photos... Dwarf Scribe. Perhaps even another Wizard. A boar. A fast friend, or fast food for the road.
  22. After many distractions and other projects, I've finally finished my set of miniatures from the "Blood Rage" board game by CMoN. I've been working on them on and off (mostly off) for over a year...the first few Giants were finished over a year ago according to my Facebook memories. I've posted some of the monsters before, but I figured I'd put them in this Show Off as well as part of the set. First, we have the Gods of Asgard: Odin: Heimdall: Tyr: Frigga: Thor: Loki:
  23. After some final sealer, Ajaxxus 5.0, Tiefling Barbarian, is ready to hit the dungeons! I'm not sure why he wound up so shiny in these photos, he's not glossy in person. Hanging out with Sir Forscale to show his reduced stature from earlier versions: I have a WiP thread of the conversion process here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71285-lidless-eye-wip-ajaxxus-skiotho-tiefling-barbarian-conversion/?p=1456616 Hopefully I'll get to play in a game rather than run one soon and be able to use him again!
  24. I think "Corporeal Shadow" and I are going to be good friends. Washes to follow.
