  1. Hello every body, this will be here not to show off anything amazing or impressive. Just something that took me five and a half hours to do. Nothing to impressive or anything like that. Its a fairly simple paint job for this old miniature. It has been sitting on my portable painting desk for many years now, and I felt like it was time to finally paint it. So I could use it in Dungeons and Dragons if I ever played a Dwarf again or just to use in anything with Dwarves in it really. With the new system of being able to upload photos straight to here from a device, it may be a little weird. I have never used the new Reaper system for photos so lets see how it works. I will still be explaining everything to the best of my ability. All of the paints i used besides one were all Reaper Paints. So, lets get started.








    Okay, so these four photos are of the Dwarf miniature as a whole. I had to paint over the entire mini with black because it had taken some damage to the prime that covers it. After i had painted the entire thing I let it dry and took the pictures so I wouldn't forget to take them.






    Next I painted on the metallic colors that i knew i was going to do and I could see. This included the small amount of Chain mail showing under his massive beard, the large Warhammer and his shiled. These were done first in Shadowed Steel. Then I did the few detail pieces that I wanted in Antique Gold. After I painted those few things I realized that I hadn't painted the Rune Stone he is standing on. So I quickly mixed up a wash of the color... well Stone. I forget who the Stone wash is made by but I added some water and I think Glaze Medium. Chaoshead will yell at me in the comments to tell me i'm wrong since i was using most of his paints. Anyways, I did a couple of coats of the Stone wash and moved on to let that dry for a while.





    While I was letting the Stone wash dry I went on to other colors. I pulled the Rainy Grey out to do the fur that lines the inside of his cape, not realizing I had missed some it will show up later. This step was fairly easy when I was painting it on, but then again the entire thing to me seemed easy and I don't really know why.






    After the inside of the cape i moved on wards and started to paint Leather. I used Ruddy Leather for anything leather on the Miniature. I started with the gloves then moved on afterwards.








    Alright, in these few photos I painted more leather onto his sleeves, belt pouch, boots and the bottom of his Chain mail shirt. This step frustrated me because I accidentally painted over some of the metal, so I had to go back and paint the metallics again. I then moved on to some detail work that may have taken the most time to do... I think.








    On the Rune Stone, I used Breonne Blue to add some color to the... Stone. XD I wanted to paint the runes from the beginning of this small project. I think the Breonne was a good choice for the runes in the first place.





    Here I had finally painted his massive beard. I used Mahogany Brown for his beard since it was the only one within my small amount of paints that would work. I liked my choice of color for his beard though.






    In these three i painted the trim of the cape with the Ruddy Leather. I painted it very carefully to make sure I didn't get any on anything else. I already had to repaint Metallic colors earlier and i didn't want to do it again.




    Continuing with the cape i painted it Leaf Green and had to do it a couple of times to make sure it was one solid color.




    Painted the face with Tanned Skin and then used Grass Green to paint his eyes. Again this is all just a super simple paint job for this mini and is just meant to be a good, fun, little thing I like to do.




    As a final thing to finish this Miniature off was a nice little touch that I thought of last second. I painted the small heart on his cape with Blood Red. 









    The Dwarf is done! He is done in all of the simplest ways to paint that I know how. XD If you all enjoyed and have some tips or anything to leave for myself. Please leave a comment and i guess stay tuned to here or another one I post in the future.

  2. Alright, time to do my side of the Battle Report from the Goffs vs. Freebooters. Like the Big guy said, Chaoshead, we had worked long and hard on the terrain and now we are starting to work on the mobs. We wanted our desert to be just right, with the right amount of proppa mixed in as well. I am not as Orky as Chaoshead, but i am slowly growing into it.


    Anyways! enough gabbin'! lets get to da foightin'!


    The hot, early, sun was already heating the desert up for another long day for the Freebooters. Kaptin Wurzag and a few of his Boyz were digging in the sand for some scrap. They had already uncovered a few pieces that were stickin' out of the ground. Wurzag and da Bad Mek Boltmuncha were digging much less than Azukk and Zogbomb, the two boyz. The Kaptin stood up from digging in the sand to light his pipe that he was chewing on. When he started to hear something... Muties? No... Diggas..... maybe but this sound was louder. Wurzag looked up at the cliff and saw a truck full of Goffs up on the slope.


    "Grab da scrap yooz can carry Lads, and get to da Trukk!!" Wurzag screamed at the Boyz and Mek as he grabbed scrap and started running for the truck.

    Boltmuncha looked up to see what was going on and saw the Goffs up on the slope. He too grabbed some scrap and headed for the Trukk. Azukk and Zogbomb following close behind.


    (This is how we set the board up, both of us really liked how it was set up and looked.)






    (Now where we put our trukks and boyz was deffinitly very cool. The cliff slope and right beneath it was My Trukk and Boyz.)








    (Me Freebooters!)



    (Da stinkin' loud moufed Goffs)




    Wurzag and the boyz threw the scrap in the trukk before hopping in, just as Boltmuncha slammed his fist on the Big Red Button and began to speed off with nothing but thrusters. Wurzag, Azukk and Zogbomb all opened fire on the Goff trukk with their Snazzgunz. As Azukk was firing, his gun jammed, but he realized... it wasn't a jam. He was out of ammo! Not thinking he would need to bring more he just loaded one mag into da Snazzgun. Wurzag and Zogbomb kept firing at the Goffs, in a hope to drive them off with just sheer firepower. The Goffs sped after Wurzag and his crew and seemed to have a new... or a really bad driver. They spun sideways and they all pressed up against the side of the vehicle to shoot at the low ridding Trukk of the Freebooters.




    Then Boltmuncha thought it was a good idea to disobey the Kaptin and turn the Trukk to face the other way. "What yoo doin' ya git!? We need to go dat way!" Wurzag yelled at Boltmuncha, pointing in the opposite way from where the Mek turned.

    "I fink it is betta to go dis way Kaptin!" The Mek replied with a loud yell over the loud thrusters.

    "Yoo betta be roight!" Wurzag and Zogbomb continue to litter the Goff Trukk with hot lead, as the Goffs turn to power straight at Da Low Ridda. Yet again the Goffs Driver or a bad Trukk stop just short of ramming into the back of Da Low Ridder.






    Then, almost out of nowhere, Wurzag takes a bullet and falls off the Trukk. Being a tough git, he crawled back onto Da Low Ridda and Screamed. "Get out of 'ere!" As he said that the gas engines finally started and Bolt muncha sped away from the Goffs Trukk. He kept mashing the Red Button and they left a dust cloud in their wake.








    The Goffs new driver tried to speed after them and again spun their Trukk. A Harpoon flying just over Boltmuncha's 'ead as the Goffs wanted the scrap in Da Low Ridda.






    With The scrap and Wurzag back on his feet from a bullet wound, Da Low Ridda speeds off into the sandy wastes. With scrap and teef to come, Wurzag produces a big toothy grin as he finally lights his pipe. "Dat was easea den i thought! Hahaha! Do'es shtinkin' Goffs fink dey can take me teef away from me and me boyz! HA! Den dey need to fink more!" Wurzag took a big breath from his pipe and puffed the smoke out, producing another toothy grin.


    Das it ya gits! It was a very fun, proppa and dusty scenario, but in da end... me freebooterz showed up dem shtinkin' Goffs! Hahahahahaha! This game was very fun and both me and the big guy had a lot of fun and laughs as we laughed at our horrible roles. XD it was a great game and now we have another game under our belt! it was a very fun and great game! Gramatical errors may be present... not really sure. XD Have fun with this and until next time!

  3. Ya, it wasnt too bad of a day. I mean, we started it off with a mad dash to a pet supply store for my little Lizard buddy, but after that was all sorted out we were good to go. Like the big guy said, im sure our neighbors hate us for doing that for like two hours. And now we will be doing it all over for the walk ways. XD then the gate then we r done with the pounding and the hammering and the so on so forth. Everything is coming together and color for paints is become an issue... we need to choose quickly, because once Da Kopp and the cliffs are sanded and texture painted, they are at the same point as the small rocks, sand dunes and the pits. So we need to choose colors soon.

  4. Yep, we will see what can be done tomorrow now that we acctually have spackle again. Depending on how much spackle the big guy bought, will depend on how much we can use. XD either way everything will be spackled and sanded in the next couple of days. The 9th will be a little busy at the house so some things may not get done, but who knows. Well i guess thats it for now. XD

  5. Ya, everything is turning out pretty great so far. The Das is drying still so we will habe to wait on that. The cliffs will need a WHILE to dry. The new big rock look elfing awsome even when i was cutting them out, and over all we go a lot done that day. I think the big guys memory lapsed a little, we sanded the small rocks on the same day as the cliffs and the big rocks were made.
