The Making of Max's Minions: A WiP Thread!

Recommended Posts

So, in this thread I'm documenting my progress at Painting and Modifying a bunch of Minis for the D&D Actual Play Podcast The Misadventures of Max's Minions to represent all of the PCs in it, Past, Present and Future! Several of these are Reaper minis this time around.


The Podcast can be found here if you are interested...



The PCs and their Mini-Minions so far...


Sting the Pixie Rogue




Dog the Beastmaster Ranger(And his Badly made "Kord Hat".)




Salle the Goblin Sorceress?




Kildrick the Dwaren Cleric of "The First Church of Kildrick the Navel-less"




Stasi Xen the Human Fighter




Dana Toren the Eladrin Warlord




Most of these are in the earliest stage of work in progress. I thought I might as well chronicle this progress somewhere, so I decided on here. Hopefully, I can get a bit of help and support as I endeavor to complete this project. I already know I need a lot of Luck for this. I'm not gonna ask for anyone to give any of your luck for this. Just asking for a bit of Support and maybe a bit of advice.

Salle the Goblin "Sorceress" is practically completed.






Dawg the Ranger has had plenty of progress, but still needs a bit more work. His "Kord Hat" is looking better now that it has paint on it.






Dawg's Animal Companion, Bear the Bear, has had progress too. Base coat and the start of shading have been done so far.


In other news about this project, I've decided to try the Bones version of the mini I was going to use for Stasi Xen the Fighter as the Metal version was frustrating me while trying to assemble it. But now that version isn't reacting well to my glue, so I ordered some of Reaper's new glue for bones. Should be here Tuesday or so.


Also, Anyone know of any dog minis? I need at least 4 different dogs for this project. I have 1 or 2 so far. They Cannot be Wolves or Wolf like. I need actual Small-Medium Sized dogs. I have a Bulldog/Pug like dog. I'm looking for other types if possible. Send me a PM with infos, if you know of any. Thanks:)

So, I've made progress on the Mini-Minions! I finished Salle, Sting and Dawg and Sealed them up just about an hour ago! My Pictures of Sting didn't come out so good, though. Dawg came out really good. I like the effect I got of Oiled Up Wrassler that has a bit of a Sunburn. Salle probally could have used a bit of touching up, but I didn't see it in time due to the small size of the mini and stuff. Oh well. She still looks pretty damn cool.










Next on my agenda, Dogs I, II, III, IV, Bullock and Kildrick! Also, Basing Stasi Xen Plan C!

Dog I is done apart from Sealing.






Same goes for Dog IV!






Started work on the Dwarven Cleric Kildrick!




Finally, started Bullock the Human Psion!





So, I still have a ways to go, but I made good progress tonight. Praise the Power of Insomnia!! :P

Dog III is nearly done except for basework.






Stasi Xen Plan C is going to be using some of the Bones 3 Weapon Swap items. Her Axe is currently drying onto a new handle.

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...

      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Hello everyone!
      Last week, I posted pictures of one of the two D&D adventuring parties I am DMing (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81365-my-dnd-adventure-group/). These were minis I painted about a year ago. As there is a second party, I wanted to post some pictures of it as well.
      I painted the second batch of minis quite recently, I hope you like them. Here they are :
      "60071: Eccardian Drovenge" is Alrune, a Tiefling druid who was raised by Ents. Taking a step back from it, I think tha the blue wasn't the best choice, I should probably have gone for brown on those blue parts. I love the mini but with all those little details it was quite a challenge to paint :

      "03828: Crusader Champion (Sword and Shield)" is Guy Saint-Hubert, a human butter maker who decided to become a paladin of the goddess of death, justice and night to avenge his family :

      "03476: Kasham, Reptus Wizard" is Kigozaloph Jeanpatrine, a Silver Dragonborn necromancer. I was worried about the metallic paint to make his skin, but i'm happy with the result :

      "14567: BSG Hok Sergeant" is Miroslav Bulldosex (sigh), a Halfling fishmonger who decided to quit the civilisation and chose a barbarian life. All the pink marks on his skin are supposed to be scars but I didn't manage to make it obvious :

      "14553: Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant" is Polodriell, an Elf ex-soldier. He lived in a jungle, that's why his arrows are made with parrot feathers. I couldn't manage to make his eyes look good because of the cloak  :

      Hey so this is my first post, I’ve only been painting since Christmas and I don’t have many friends who do it. So this seems like the best place to get some advice. I’ve been working on this fire demon for a while now and I finally finished the main body, but just wanted some advice for the base and what I could go for. I had a lot of difficulty with the runes on the sword as I really don’t have the skill yet to do it. If you see anything else that’s rough with it let me know please :) the photos are just a few progress pictures. Thank you!

      I'm playing a Firbolg Druid in a campaign and couldn't find any mini to represent him.  So I came across this Longtooth Barbarian and decided to convert one. I removed the sword on the back for a backpack, and I gave him a Scimitar.
