    03575: Barrow Wight Guardian

    Here's a few picks of a Barrow Wight Guardian that I started last week and only just got around to getting pics of. What's really funny is that this figure has been primed, on a base and in storage for nearly ten years. Future plans include: 1. Fresh damage to armor. 2. Free hand image on shield. 3. Weathering and rust on sword and armor. 4. Green glow from eyes, mouth, and neck of armor. Feel free to share ideas for shield image, I have no ideas right now.

    Grenadier Wight

    Here is the wight from the Grenadier Monsters box set. Since wights hate light, I should have toned down the base and made it dirty/rocky. Oops. Another experiment with Army Painter's Strong Tone. This time with pale gray skin instead of the greenish flesh of the previous zombie. I'm not as happy with the gray + Strong Tone look. I added the bone. As I mentioned elsewhere, all the undead models in the box set have their right hands raised up for no apparent reason, so I feel compelled to make a reason. In this case, he is gnawing on a bone.

    Zombie Dragon with Wight/Vampire rider

    Just realized I never got around to taking show off pictures of this guy. I had some frosting issues which killed my momentum in my WIP (here) for him, and then he sat around waiting to be fixed. The fix mostly worked, but you'll see a few shots where the light is a little more direct where he ended up shiny. Not a big deal as in most lighting he looks fine. The last few shots will have an alternate rider's top half, I swapped the original Wight out for the top half of Reaper's Judas Bloodspire, sans cape.
  4. Like most Otherworld minis, these wights are based on early D&D art, and I think they represent the subject well, despite some difficult mold lines on the arms that wound up looking all right with paint. Anyhow, here's a preview before I commit to base decoration. The paint is pretty well near finished, but I welcome any suggestions to improve them.
  5. As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7. This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns. I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like: MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D. Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be important

    Scavenging Ghoul

    This thing comes as a "Scavenging Ghoul", but I immediately saw it as a wight. I think it's because his pose is similar to the artwork in the AD&D MM1 for a wight. Anyways, that's how I painted it up. This one has been undead for a while, but being a former monk, it has some unexplained need for a thumping weapon, hence the forearm bone. It thinks the manky old heart it's carrying around is it's old holy symbol... As always, all C's & C's welcome.

    02080: Golgoth The Ancient

    This fellow will get a new weapon from somewhere most likely, but the model itself is really great. :) Wight hero for Warhammer.
  8. 94003 Razor is the tiny chicken walker guy with no arms. Store Link 94004 Assassin is a standard mech guy with non-symmetrial weapon pods on his shoulders. Store Link 94007 Wight is a big running CAV with square pods and long arm-guns. Store Link Also, having just looked these guys up on the kickstarter page they (and my Spectre from before) all belong to the yellow ankh-dagger faction, which is a nice coincidence in case the rules ever come out. (cough) Usual prep: Filed off (some) mold lines, boiled to straighten things out, washed with a soapy toothbrush, rinsed, dried, and stuck to bottles. On my last/first CAV, sticking some of the bits to the bottle was a mistake, it made it hard to paint, and especially went bad with the varnish at the end. To combat this, I switched from poster-tacking on bottles to impaling them on sticks. The sticks are skewers or something, for food I guess, but they work better for this than I expected. They originally had pointy tips, but I just snipped off enough of the pointy end until what was left was just a bit smaller than the peg-hole, so it would go in far enough to be held by friction. I can set it in the bottle (Weighted with coins) when I need to set it down. For the arms (and smaller sticks) I used binder clips, it holds it securely and I can set it down without it toppling over. I'm a little worried about it squeezing the peg too much, but I figure bones are durable enough it shouldn't be a problem, especially if I get these done within a week or so. Which is my goal, get these done before Bones II arrive. To 'prime' I slathered on a coat of unthinned Reaper 09065 Grey Liner. I think I'm coming around to the liners, they go on easier than unthinned Walnut Brown and don't seem to have a problem sticking. Not much to see just yet.
  9. Hello, Here is a fun project I started to make use of some mis-packed CAV SO Bones Kickstarter rewards. Story: Out of the 32 CAV minis included in the early bird CAV SO Kisckstarter reward, I got 2 mispacked CAV: One Halberd with 2 left arms One Wight with 2 right arms Reaper Support was top notch, and they sent me as a replacement a full Wight and a full Halberd. So I was wondering for a while what to do with those 2 mismatched but FREE minis... ... Then I went Hobby knife crazy and chopped them up... For the Halberd, it was fairly easy to fix the arm as the shoulder pad is identical on front and back. So a quick cut, pin and glue did the trick. I also repositionned it to have a slightly more dynamic stance. For the Wight, there was no way I could make the arm look decent enough for a mini. So I decided to make the wight be in big trouble. Damaged, arm in flame (I have to work on my sculpring) and kneeling down. Seeing those 2 minis like that gave me the idea to make a little Close Combat ending scene. The Wight badly beaten up, arms down and the Halberd about to strike the Coup de Grâce. I then speed painted the models (I wasn't patient enough to do detailed brush work as I wanted to create the scene I had in mind). The Halberd went for a very muted Winter Camo, while the Wight went for a Dark Jungle Camo. I started to add some details to the base and decided to go for a Wintery scenery. That would make sense as the Wintery Halberd clearly has the upper-hand over the Jungle Wight. (Silly Wight, it should have dressed for the weather...) Then I painted, the base, added my own mixture of snow goop, tried my hand at some Object Source Lighting (still have to work on that)... et Voilà ! A tiny CAV Diorama made with Minis that could have ended in the garbage. As usual, comments and suggestion welcome.
  10. Hi all, this is my first post on this forum and I wanted to share my progress on the CAV bones early bird rewards. So here they are: #1 Tiamat: #2 Cougar One is reposed in a more static stance. #3 Assassin #4 Razor #5 Specter #6 Wight One is also reposed (I'm not a bit fan of the running stance for those ones). #7 Halberd (in a quick and dirty speed painted camo) ************************* I also stumbled accross the templates to build a Hercules Dropship in foam core, and I knew that I had to make it. (It was a fun project with my daughter). Here it is fully assembled: And then with details added and a lot of airbrushing: I think it looks quite cool and makes a nice backdrop for my CAV: Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.

    mistergreenwood's machines

    My turn to show my trials (and errors) or painting CAV. First up, the Tiamat. Coated with Americana avocado green, sponged with yellow and Oiled Leather, washed with Secret Weapon Sewer Water and then somewhat highlighted (still working on that). Forgot to fill the gaps at the base. Added some sand and some burnt static grass.
