Painted this guy up to act as our dwarven barbarian for some Adventurers League gaming at an upcoming con.
Messing around with skin tones. I may go back and add some tattoos before I finish coating him with varnish (he's got one coat of gloss right now). Am not sure what to put on him, other than maybe the rune for anger.

It took longer than I expected to get these guys done, but I'm happy with how they came out. They're part of the Warhammer Battle for Skull Pass set that I bought in 2007.
The base is a bit uneven as when I glued down the back of a blister pack for the stonework it split open and I covered it in with gravel. In the future I'm going to have to use something else as it really didn't register as "stone" to my eye, but the cannon covers most of it at least.
The powder barrel is a small Reaper bones barrel I've had for awhile, the cannon balls are 25mm airsoft ammo and the coffee pot is from an old Marx toy factory dollhouse set. Vastly overscale until one thinks about the thirst of the average dwarf! I had the idea of adding some thing for each dwarf, ammo for the hauler, gun powder for the engineer, and coffee for the swabber with the mug.
The aforementioned gap filling. Base of craft paint Pavement with Stormy Gray and Rainy Gray drybrushed over it.
The crew in Maxwell House colors. The swabber looks to be well on his way to caffinated bliss!
I got my brother a set of Reaper's core paints for Christmas -- he's just getting into painting. Since I ordered them in November, I wound up with FOUR of the silver anniversary Dain Deepaxe, and offered to help him break in his paints by painting this one up.
This one came damaged -- missing half of one horn and with a crack down the center of the mini. You can see it on his right shoulder. I decided to paint this one because the damage made it more interesting: clearly, he's been in desperate combat against some dread beast whose terrible claws clove straight through his horn and cracked his armor before he finally laid it low.
I've also decided not to ask for a replacement. Even after giving one to my brother, I've got two unpainted ones left. That'll be plenty, thanks.
His left arm is also different from stock -- I messed up the pin placement and it just would not fit normally, so I had to use green stuff to give him a bit more bicep than he'd usually have on that side. Let that be a lesson, people: get your pins centered!
It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I have some making up to do. Forgive me.
Dub Bullock. A most unpleasant painting experience. Mine was badly cast so I had to fix up a few spots. This is not something I'm good at. Greenstuff is my enemy.
Thorvald, Dwarf Hero was an experiment in blue armour. I'm not sure if I'll do that again.
Baeldrinahr, Rogue Fighter. I've painted this one before with a similar scheme.
