Update: finished 4 of my 8 bretonnian knights horses. Gonna take a break before doing the last 4.
I based my gw horses on 2x2 “large” bases so that they fill the proper space for pathfinder and d&d. They are to the right so that someone who is mounted can place their mini to the left to designate that it is mounted.
Bases were made by stamping green stuff into textured stamps. I think these are gonna be pretty useful on the board. I've had a lot of trouble showing whether someone was on their horse or not, and it involved a lot of mini swaps.
These guys are the horses from the "Freeguild Pistoliers" set. I'm also working on a set of "Bretonnian Knights" horses to be based in the same manner that have barding on them. Those are still a WIP, but I'll update this topic when they're done. :)
The next phase of the army has started. 10 wolf riders, as well as an extra orc mounted on a boar.
My entry for this year's Christmas contest at one of the FLGS's.
'E's makin' a list, e's checkin' it twice.
'E's gonna find out who's orky or nice,
Santa Klawz is comin' to town.
'E knows just when yer lootin'.
'E knows when you're a flake.
'E knows if you follow gork or mork,
So be brutal for cunning's sake.
Oh, you better watch out, you better not whine,
'E'll punch out yer snout, he'll rip out yer spine.
Santa Klawz is comin' to town!
Santa is played by an Ork Painboy, with a hat sculpted by the same buddy who did the bag for Commissar Kringle. The base is a Secret Weapon Miniatures base. I got the furniture (table, wall) from a couple of different places. The bear and the jack-in-the-box are both from Reaper's Evil Toys set. The tree is from a model railway set, with random bits taken from Games Workshop stuff. Finally, the little goblin standing on the crates is from a different painboy set, the painboy from which was used as payment for the hat.
EDIT: Fixed the images to lose the Photobucket shenanigans.
More Stuff I did on Summer Vacation.
PingosHusband gave me a set of Citadel "Sisters of the Thorn", female wood elves riding what are supposed to be deer, I think (although they have solid hooves and their antlers attach weirdly). Anyhow, they look pretty cool. The set also could make up some hunky shirtless male riders in creepy antlered masks, and I ended up making one of those along with four of the females.
And then there were parts left over.
Sooo ... I had enough to make one more full male torso and one female torso lacking hair (and three male torsos that need hair and right arms, but that's a project for another day ...).
Well, what can you do with a torso?
Obviously, make centaurs (horse or spider) out of them. I lugged out my bin o' Bones and found 77264: Female Centaur sculpted by Sandra Garrity (There's a male centaur too, but interestingly the female "horse" part is larger and more robust than the male.) and 77182: Arachnid Archer sculpted by Gene van Horne.
I ruthlessly sliced off the human torso from the centaur and used a pin because I'm not sure how well epoxy adheres to Bones.
I carved the waist of the spider body a little to fit the elf torso, but I didn't take pictures of that. This is the figure fitted in but not yet glued. There wasn't any hair for this torso, so her face is only a hollow mask glued to the neck at a tiny contact point at the back of the chin, fragile and just a little creepy.
I mixed up some epoxy and drizzled little comma-shapes onto parchment paper, let them dry, and peeled them off. Then I mixed more epoxy and blobbed it into the back of the elf's skull and added dried epoxy commas until it looked more or less like hair.
Here are the two of them done:
