  1. A bull would greatly fit in the nativity as well.
  2. 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.
  3. They are GW. I believe they indeed were from the LOTR range.
  4. 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
  5. 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 bec
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. That's awesome! I particularly like the blue/pink mix on the last one.
  9. I really like the evil look of these guys. They remind me of Diablo II. The dried grass and skulls are a great add!
  10. 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.
  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 :
  12. Hi everyone! I just finished these two minis. I painted them back in May, but as I didn’t want a simple dip in glue and sand for the base of the big one, I took some time to look at different techniques to make some snow, and I’m pretty happy with the one I chose (mix of white craft paint, PVA glue and baking soda in equal quantities). I read afterwards that using baking soda can turn the snow yellow in a few years... Hopefully, the white paint is here to prevent it, I’ll post an update in a few years if I think about it. I had great fun painting these two. Espe
  13. Here is my first mini. The guy at my local Games Workshop back then gave it to me and invited me to stay awhile and paint so here it is. It looks like I unwillingly did wet blending as there is some bronze mixed with the green on the glove and the shoulder pads. No shading nor highlights, I didn’t feel confident about it. And doing something about the paint on the base didn’t even come to my mind. It was in 2014 or 2015.
  14. Goku colors are always a win! I’m amazed by the highlights on the cloth.
  15. Tkanks everyone for your likes and comments. :)
  16. Hi everyone, These two are from a Kickstarter I backed about 2 years ago, the « Village of the Witches » by Midlam Miniatures. I used Master Darkweezel as Thanadio the Pink, the BBEG in my DnD campaign. Sister Foulberry is Magda the Chubby, one of my PCs. I hope you like them. :)
  17. Hi everyone! Here are my 3 last minis. I didn’t want to paint them a classical frog-green, so I looked for some frogs with cool colors (which generally means they are venomous, which is cool), and I found these : https://www.canstockphoto.fr/grenouille-rouge-flèche-poison-13879876.html I really loved the color mix and the pattern on their legs and back. I really thought I would never manage to make something looking like the model, but ultimately I’m happy with it. I didn’t do the pattern all the way to the middle their back, but only on the legs and ar
  18. It's just at the start of my post, it has absolutely been here since the very beginning. Or maybe not. They're a bit pricey, that's true. Thanks a lot!
  19. The Kickstarter is live!! That was a long wait! You can find it here : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/boxturtlereb/the-boxer-rebellion-nine-kung-fu-style-turtle-adventurers/description I just made a topic there : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/91361-the-boxer-rebellion-nine-kung-fu-style-turtle-adventurers/
