    Dwarven Forge KS 6.66 - Hellscape

    Looks like the pledge manager is open now. I went in pretty heavy for this one and even went painted. I just couldn’t see myself spending the time to go unpainted after they released the video. Also a nice bonus they decided to release the Cerberus mini that wasn’t unlocked in the campaign!

    Wizkids Frost Giant

    I haven’t posted in a while. Been mostly painting terrain for the past 8 months or so. Finally getting back to some minis. So I picked up the Wizkids frost giant last fall to paint up as Harashnag for my Storm Kings Thunder campaign. He had been sitting around for a while and I finally got a chance to get him painted. The right arm actually wasn’t glued in very well so I was able to paint with it out of the way for the most part. As usual with these Wizkids pre-primes, I didn’t clean up any mold lines though I probably should have this time around. C&C welcome!
  3. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tombguardians/queen-of-the-damned-velraths-vampires?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=Queen of the damned Just got an email notification that this is live. These guys tried a kickstarter a few months ago for some dwarves that failed to find. They ended up releasing most of them retail. I got quite a few. The sculpts are top notch and so is the casting. Looks like these are all sculpted by some familiar faces, Jason Wiebe, Patrick Keith and Bobby Jackson. Not it sure if I’ll back yet, but I’m interested for sure.

    03909: Toruk, Hellborn Barbarian

    Hey all, it’s been a little while since I’ve had time to paint anything. The last couple days I finally got back to it and painted up Toruk for a one shot D&D game on Sunday. I’m pretty happy how he turned out since I tried to go quick. I really love this sculpt and it might of influenced my race choice a little bit :) C&C welcome! Enjoy!

    Tomb Guardians miniatures - 11/6

    I’ve backed at the dwarf faction level. I really hope these end up funding as there’s some great sculpts. The rewards choices leave a lot to be desired though.

    Thelgar Halfblood Half Orc Barbarian 03197 Conversion

    I love the 2-handed mail you gave him in replacement of the axe. Did you sculpt that yourself or is it another conversion? Either way great work!

    03197 - Thelgar Halfblood, halforc barbarian

    Thanks all! For the skin tone I used the dusky skin triad. It’s one of the better skin triads I’ve used and I’m planning to also try it out on a couple of fire giants I need to paint up for the same campaign.
  8. So it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Been mostly painting terrain and going back to a mini was a little bit of an adjustment. I just finished this guy up for one of my D&D players who’s playing a halforc barbarian. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out. Still need to toss another clear coat or two and then maybe some blood on the axe. c&c welcome as always!

    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    You can try switching all the painted to unpainted. I’m not sure how much that’ll save you you though.

    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    I received I my invite yesterday also. So far I’m sitting st the adventure essentials 1-6. I’d like to put more in as I don’t have a lot of caverns yet, but I have other expenses coming up. I’m hoping to be able to upgrade to the 1-11 or 1-9 pledge before the manager closes. edit: I didn’t mention, I’m going all unpainted. I got almost everything from KS5 unpainted and am pretty much down to doors, encounter specials (like the golems) and the jade shrine. It’s quite a bit of work to get stuff painted though.

    Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

    I agree the pillars look pretty terrible. The other pieces in comparison look much better. I’m still trying to figure out how I want to paint them without getting paint on the areas I want to remain jade. I’m also thinking of trying to paint these two columns as marble ones since they’re going to send out replacements some day.
  12. I’ve been trying to mimic pretty closely their factory paint job. The columns I’m using deep lava from dwarven forge. Really any reddish brown would work nice. The. I’ve tried black for the archways and tops and bottoms of the columns. I’m not sure how I feel about the black. I’ve only finished up two pieces fully to get a feeling for what I want them all to look like. I just finished the red part of the columns on about 2/3 of my 60 walls. I still have the black to do and then a final stone edge dry brush.

    Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

    I received my third shipment today with the gorgon tiers and jade shrine. I’m really happy I decided to splurge for the shrine in Jade. I will need the replacement jade columns whenever they get those from the factory. All of the other jade pieces came in the translucent green except the pillars.
  14. Looking good! I started painting my KS5 within the last week. The new pieces with the columns look nice, but it adds quite a bit of time to getting them painted up nice.

    The shipping email comes from ofweb@williambmeyer.com. I don’t remember if mine came in my spam folder or not, but people in the comments section on KS suggested to keep an eye out there. I think I got my shipping notice 2 or 3 business days after my pre-shipment.
