Good day everyone, this was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Paint Your Giant contest. 77178, Fire Giant Warrior, Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It is mounted on a 74027, Ruins Vignette Base, a resin base sculpted by Patrick Keith. This model is huge, 7cm high and 13cm wide with the sword. I did some minor conversion on it. A heavy thundering sound come crushing down the ruined hall. You see orange and red lights dancing between the pillar supporting the stone roof. In the glimpse of a moment, all hell break loose as a dark skin colossus burst from the rubbles wielding a towering incandescent blade. He lands next to you smashing the large tiles of the floor. You are paralyzed in fear as he turns gazing in your direction with fire in his eyes. Desperate, you wonder if you've gone too far exploring this ancient Undermountain realm.
Dark Heaven Legends Thelgar Halfblood 03197 converted using greenstuff and warhammer bits. Painted and used as a pc in my dnd campaign :D
This is a conversion of the dark elf figure Aundine (14089 in the Warlord line) to represent my latest Pathfinder character, a changeling (orphan of a sea hag mother and a human father) with water-related magic and some rogue abilities.
You can see the WIP thread here.
I spent about 6 hours on prep & conversion & basing, and about 5 hours priming & painting.
This will be a literal "tabletop mini", so I didn't spend the time to get very smooth blends, but it is still much more than a speedpaint. I took especial care on the face and had fun with her shiny "eelskin" armor.
Would anyone like to know how I would judge this as an entry in ReaperCon's MSP Open painting contest, in either the Painters Division or the Open Division?
This is the miniature for my character in my current home game, the "Ruins of Azlant" Pathfinder Adventure Path.
My character is a changeling (child of a sea hag), a spellcaster with an affinity for water and also some rogue abilities.
She presented herself as a human rogue for the first few sessions, but couldn't keep the secret forever.
We have finished 2 of the 6 books, playing about twice a month. I was using an elf mini from my collection as a stand-in, but I knew I wanted to paint a mini specific to the character.
She wears a suit of magical eelskin leather armor (which we recently found in the game); her main weapons are a longspear, a crossbow, and her claws.
I searched through the Reaper catalog and I remembered how much I liked this dark elf from the Warlord line (14089 Aundine), though I had never painted one:
So I made a few changes:
- cut off the pointy right ear and resculpted hair over it
- cut away hair from left side of face and resculpted face and hair
- removed sword, drilled a hole through right hand, added a spear:
- spearhead/blade from 03466 Taladise elf huntress
- shaft made from the wire of a Chinese food take-out container
- wrapping and end-cap sculpted from Green Stuff
- removed left hand and weapon, replaced with claw-hand from 03337 Terezinya, attached left arm to body at a higher angle than shown in the catalog example
- cut right foot off of tab and straightened foot
- added goggles with Green Stuff
Here was the result of those conversions:
More to come!
