I'm not painting the dwarfs like literal jade because I'd like them to also be useful later as, y'know, dwarfs. The book cover (I'm not allowed to crack the contents yet) makes them look kind of earth-toney anyhow.

 

Meyanda, however, I am painting totally jade.

Except for her eyes, all greens here are a single mix of Phthalocyanine Green and Burnt Sienna, lightened with Titanium White to make it opaque.

 

Her irises are pure Phthalo Green layered on transparently.

I painted the dwarves with a variety of normal human complexions. The pale ones are largely mixes of Titanium White and Burnt Sienna, with a little Yellow Ochre sometimes. The darker ones are Titanium White and Burnt Umber, highlighted with more white and Yellow Ochre added. Lips are mostly Red Iron Oxide with some Titanium White, shadowed with Burnt Umber. Eyes are all Burnt Umber with sclera of pale grey mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black.

 

Some of them came out a little more successfully than others.

Face details. Again, some work better than others.

 

The main advantage of these extreme close ups is they can show things I can't see with the naked eye, even under magnification:

Also, note to self. Apparently my paintbrush had some minuscule lint in it (aughhh). Please note the need for repairs in the following faces:

That’s Hasslefree’s HFD014 Hatherley. He has a lot of character and a Muppet-like face.

Oooooh, my. The skin tone on Kara is lovely! 

 

... What did we decide Burnt Umber and yellow Ochre look like in Reaper MSP? I'll need to try this.

...I feel like you can say that about most HF minis. Which is why I'm sad I have none in my collection.

A few Kev White pieces that I like a bunch, but nothing from HF proper.

So far as I know, Yellow Ochre is "Palomino Gold" in the Reaper line. I'm not sure what, if anything, Burnt Umber would be.

Well, his dwarfs, yes. His human women are a little more glamorous guest star and a little less Muppet.

I did not have a lot of time to paint today, so I sketched in the hair colors on the dwarves.

 

This is where I use a very simple palette to remind me of what I want their hair colors to be, which will be used as undertones later.

 

Two of them were laid in in solid Carbon Black.

DSC_0498-14143-Kara-Foehunter-Dwarf-Hero-face.jpg.ffe6b361123410999dd2c75be56041d0.jpg  DSC_0498-Stonehaven-dwarf-sorceress-face.jpg.bbe845ff6a6d773f8097c735dc35236a.jpg

 

This one was Burnt Umber with a wash of Carbon Black.

DSC_0500-Oathsworn-hammer-face.jpg.532de3ecd31e24c9006a08f409880147.jpg

 

Two redheads (because dwarfs have lots of gingers, yes?). These were laid in with a mix of Red Iron Oxide and Yellow Ochre, then washed with a bit of Burnt Sienna.

A back view of the Red Box dwarf's hair, because wow (some still wet spots in the photo, I see).

DSC_0503-Red-Box-Dwarf.jpg.e27c29a7e80c0952ce2d9cc997b54677.jpg

 

Blonde hair for the pretty dwarf princess. This is pure Yellow Ochre with a wash of Burnt Sienna and then Burnt Umber (not mixed). On the whole I find actual blonde hair to be a much drabber color than expected, but as a placeholder I'm okay with going with a strong yellow.

DSC_0504-Oathsworn-braid.jpg.4cc6fbeb33894024a03d197e5815a1a4.jpg

 

And the old Ral Partha dwarf seer gets, well, this is actually a quite greyish mix of Titanium White and Burnt Umber, laid on very thinly.

Ah, Palomino Gold. Yes. The Burnt Umber is rich enough that I'm tempted to give the Palomino Gold a try with Blackened Brown and see what I get.

 

... But then, I'll mix anything with Blackened Brown, so maybe I'm just saying that.

 

And, you're right about the HF ladies. But they all have a characterfulness that reminds me of Muppets, even if they aren't so Muppetationally proportioned.

 

Doesn't Tre do wonders with hair? Great fun to paint.

      After a while of not posting any painted pieces I present to you my pledge from Stonehaven Adventurers 2018. They have been painted using a limited palett of: titanium buff, titanium white, prussian blue, red oxide, burnt umber, raw umber and yellow ochre. They were fun to paint even if some of them are tinny. My favourite fo the bunch is the thief, I am not sure if you can see it from the photos but the base looks like water without using water effect (modelling paste and a wash of prussian blue + yellow ochre).

      This was maybe the 7th mini outside of a box game I ever bought. He came with a coffin, which I can't find but know I still have. I went a little outside my usual Witch/Vampire Hunter color scheme to instead paint him in my own usual "uniform"...

      About
       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!
