The dwarf is the 5th figure that I have painted from the old Grenadier 2007 set. It was so hideous that I never posted it, partially because I didn't really like the figure and just slapped some paint on it to call it done. I mean, those eyes were just sculpted circles. I filled the center with color, edge highlighted the raised outer edge, and then went around them with a shadow color. If you are an aspiring sculptor... never ever sculpt eyes like it is 1980. But I was talked into posting it, so blame 72moonglum and Volksfest for the horror.
For scale, here is the dwarf between and Infinity Nomad and a Reaper bugbear. Knee-capping is her only option.
I've had this guy since long before I started painting, intended to represent my gnome illusionist that I played in a few one-shot 5e D&D games. Pretty pleased with how he came out, will likely go back to tidy and add a little more green lighting to spots, like the hair, but done for now. Definitely the smallest mini I've done to date, and glad that I was able to get some of the fine detail on to the piece.
I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too.
I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz?
I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.
So I just finished this figure this weekend. This is a Hackmaster Female Gnome Illusionist from a line that was created for the Hackmaster Role Playing Game, but was recently acquired by Iron Wind Metals/Ral Partha. It's a pretty nice little series of figures with an old school vibe and some interesting creatures. This is the only one I really have at the moment and decided to paint her up. I painted a version of this figure a long time ago, but not too too long ago got a hold of another copy. So here's the most recent version:
and here is my original version, which I painted probably almost ten years ago I'm guessing:
I'm kind of torn between the two. I think I like the color patterns all bright and such with the freehand ghosts, but at least from a painting aspect, even though not as colorful, the newer one I like probably a bit better.
Way back when I had the conception from the Monster Manual that gnomes were grey with white hair and while I have overcome that conception, I was still living in that state of mind when I painted her the first time.
Anyhow, there they are, enjoy!
