  1. That’s the effect I tried to do, I’m glad it works for you ! Thanks! They took me way more time than I expected, it was so long shaping these tiny bits of paperclips the right way. And as the chain is pretty thin as well, I couldn’t pin them to it so I just filed away half the last link and half the bottom of the hook, so they would look aligned after the copper-looking greenstuff transition part would be done.
  2. They are GW. I believe they indeed were from the LOTR range.
  3. Hi everyone! Well, I said recently that I don’t paint much GW’s minis, but it’s the second time in about two weeks that I paint some. These guys are resin minis I’ve had for several years. I liked the way they looked and instantly thought they would make great grunts for the Icebeard Clan in my DnD world. But then when I received them, there was several casting problems: weird flat textures in the mails and holes that seem to have been bubbles while casting. One hole was just on the bottom of one of the dwarfs’ sword, which made it break when I tried to unbend it. And when I tried to pin it, the blade just broke apart. So ultimately, I just used them based and broken in my games. As I’m now a bit more confident with greenstuff, I fixed the holes and the blade, and finally gave them the paint job they’ve been waiting for all that time! The weapon I made is the saber of the second one on the left, I made something a bit different. I hope you like them.
  4. Hi everyone! I picked this mini some time ago to incarnate an infamous Elf pirate who’s called “Fisher” in my DnD campaign. With that nickname, I thought he could use some hooks, so I tried to mod the mini by adding some chains and hooks. The chains are from the chains weapon pack, the hooks are bits of paper clips bent and filed, and I sculpted the joining parts. It’s the first time I try to convert a mini, and I’m happy with the results. He wears his red mask because his true identity is one of my player characters’ lost brother. I put him on a larger base because he’s a little unstable by itself (even without the chains). I should probably have taken off the whole metal base before pinning it to the new plastic one but I was anxious as I never did it before. I’ll try next time. :) I struggled with the black hair, that’s the most okay-ish I managed to do. It’s a great sculpt, I had great fun painting it. I hope you like him. :)
  5. I love it. It would work well as some kind of goofy degenerate beholder, born from a failed experiment by a nefarious wizard at reproducing beholders.
  6. Hi everyone! I don’t paint much minis from Games Workshop, but this one is a birthday gift from my DnD players. It came in so many pieces!! I’m not used to that. He was pretty fun to paint, I chose an icy theme so he could fit with my other Dwarves. Looking at his outfit, the poor guy is probably going to get a cold. :D Hope you like it.
  7. That's awesome! I particularly like the blue/pink mix on the last one.
  8. I really like the evil look of these guys. They remind me of Diablo II. The dried grass and skulls are a great add!
  9. Thanks all for your likes and comments! :) I don't know much about Icewind Dale but it seems to be very interesting. I'm really looking forward to having a look at the upcoming Icewind Dale DnD book.
  10. Thanks for your likes and comments. :)
  11. Hi everyone ! I got these two guys as an add-on in the “Rise of the Powrie” Kickstarter by Cauldron Born Miniatures. Their heavy armor and thick fur cloaks were a perfect fit for the “Icebeard Clan Dwarves” in my D&D campaign. I really liked painting them, and it let me practice painting whites. And as Icebeard Dwarves excel in yeti taming, here they are with their escort :
