  1. You got it ! 😄 I do intend to do that, that’s going to be fun! Grand Slam, the skin is Citadel’s Kislev Flesh that I highlighted by adding some Snowdrift White to the mix, so it slightly goes towards blue. Thanks everyone for the likes and nice comments!
  2. And he’s done! I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I put all the pictures in the Show Off topic: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/98746-wizard-confusius-by-midlam-miniatures-normal-and-converted-into-a-barbarian/
  3. Hi everyone! Here’s my take on Wizard Confusius from Midlam Miniatures. He’s going to be my character in a Pathfinder game I’m about to start with friends. The character’s dream is to become an archmage but he has absolutely no affinity with magic, he studied a lot but he's just a barbarian that regularly unleashes the power of the gorilla that’s haunting him. He’ll always do his best to pretend he’s a mage, so I made 2 minis: one when he’s still pretending, and one when he enrages. You can find the WIP of the conversion there : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/98615-turning-wizard-confusius-midlam-miniatures-into-a-barbarian/ Without further ado, here he is, I hope you like it. 🙂
  4. I haven’t had much time to spend on painting these last few days, but the game is on next Friday, Arzane needs to be done by Thursday night! I started the highlights tonight. Happy Easter everyone, and be careful wit the chocolate. 😉
  5. He’s got primer on now. Lots of flaws appeared, particularly on the metal/greenstuff transition around the shoulders. I tried to smoothen that part but it didn’t work that well. It mostly shows on the front part of the right shoulder. I’ll have to try and improve that part next time…
  6. Oh well, in the end I didn’t wash it. Let’s hope it doesn’t peel off. I gave the fur a try and it went way better than I expected. He really starts to look like someone you wouldn’t want to get a punch from. Next time, I’ll make the torn part of the robes around the shoulders and that should be it.
  7. I only used water before. I didn’t have any Vaseline so I used some cooking oil, and it worked great! It’s far from perfect but it’s still way better than before! Thanks for the tip Mad Jack! Next time I’ll start the fur on the shoulders and forearms. I read somewhere that I should wash the mini before doing the next layer as I used lubricant, isn’t it a bit risky ? Is it really useful ?
  8. That sounds fun! There’s the Bladesinging wizard in 5e that fights in melee but it doesn’t really get close to the barbarian. I’m no expert in Pathfinder 2e but I think I saw a barbarian subclass with magic powers. I chose not to take this one as my character will be funnier to play if he’s completely incompetent magic wise. Back to my mini, I filled the gaps and made his left shoulder bulkier (the bandit knocker was no match to Goldar). The real sculpting will start next time… But I was wondering, how do you manage to have a super smooth surface on your greenstuff? Mine always gets very rough. You can see it on the first picture, the left shoulder is a mess. 😔
  9. Hi everyone! As I’ve had some luck lately with greenstuff, I decided to try and step up my conversion experiments. Then, I also have a Pathfinder v2 game in which I’m going to play, that starts late April. I decided to play Arzane de Tel Caryl, a barbarian possessed with the soul of a giant gorilla, but who also dreams of becoming an archmage (that will never happen). So he pretends to be a magician, and tries his best. He will be played by Midlam Miniatures’ Wizard Confusius. Here’s the man : So there will be this mini, being Arzane when he’s cool and contains himself. But then, sometimes when he enrages, his gorilla side emerges and his arms change accordingly. His sleeves don’t appreciate it at all. I used Goldar’s right arm and the Human rogue bandit knocker´s left one. I also pinned him on the base in a way that he’s slightly leaning forward, having a more menacing posture. Now will start the greenstuff part, I’ll try my best not to mess it up too much. He will get bigger fists, and some hair on his shoulders and forearms. No weapon, he needs nothing but his fists.

  11. Thanks for the nice comments and likes! I really like what Midlam does, I back their kickstarters every once in a while. The leather effect is mainly done with a paint sample Reaper added to my first order, I really like it and use it a lot. As it’s got no name I have no idea how I’m going to do leather when I run out of it. 😭
  12. Hi everyone! I needed a mini for Kürnil Pierrebleue (means Bluestone), a former Dwarf bandit chief who got enthralled by the Pink Mage in my DnD campaign. I used Borgun Headsplicer for that. I got him from a Kickstarter named "Dwarves - a class of their own" by Midlam Miniatures. I slightly modded him with greenstuff to make his crystal hand. I made the other crystals withs the cut remains of the base the mini came with. It’s the first time I really feel like I made something convincing with greenstuff. Edit: I forgot to mention the crystals were the easiest part, I just followed the instructions on this video: https://youtu.be/jw-ekhBn2hk
  13. That’s exactly what I thought when I saw it! Can’t wait to paint it!
  14. Hi everyone! I painted this guy last summer but it seems that I didn’t post any pic here, so here he is! It’s one of these sculpts I had no use of, but that I immediately needed when Insaw it. I really like his attitude. I was struggling to choose the crest’s color but my daughter came in and said « paint it purple! », that was an excellent idea. I hope you like it. 🙂
  15. Beautiful painting and great choice of colors! I really like how you managed to make them look wet, I tried to do that with mine but it didn’t really work.
  16. Wow this is so impressive!
  17. That was the main intent, but after that I didn’t know how to tie them all together. Thanks everyone for your comments.
  18. Hi everyone, I’ve had these guys sitting on my desk half-painted for about a year, I didn’t get very inspired. So I used them as a speed paint training. I always struggle to paint quickly, and even though it took me 2 evenings to finish the base coat and do the shadings and highlights (probably 5 to 6 hours). Not sure it still counts as a speed paint. Overall, I’m happy with how the armour looks (particularly their backs), and also that the different colours give them a Power Rangers vibe. 😄
  19. - A badass-looking feathered dragon. One which wouldn’t look like a dandy. With fangs, claws, horns, spikes, all the attributes a cool badass dragon needs. But with feathers. - Dolphinfolk - an Akhlut (half-orca and half-wolf creature from Inuit mythology)
  20. Hi everyone! I just finished painting Katarina the Invoker as Ankha Razhanaz, a witch tied to an oceanic maleficient demigod that was supposed to be my character in a game a friend finally decided to DM. First I drew it and then I thought about trying to find a good mini. I couldn’t find any mini with a halberd and a dress that’s sufficiently revealing to show her scars. So I decided to convert the Katarina I had. I cut the left leg and cat off (that tore my heart, the cat was so pretty). Then I added a polearm and a shield from the 14293 reven weapon pack. The weapons arrived bigger than I expected but as Ankha needs a magic belt to have enough strength to wield it, that makes sense doesn’t it ? 😅 I also sculpted the dress over the leg I cut, I still struggle a lot with greenstuff so I’m not very pleased with that part but hey, it coud have been worse. The kelp and the shell on the base are made with what was left of greenstuff when I finished the dress. So without further ado here it is, I hope you like it:
