  1. New company starting up. Only asking for $6,500 and only have a few miniatures and busts for sale. Kind of refreshing to a degree to see. Also everything is already sculpted. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1095811188/olde-world-miniatures-kickstarter They've got an Elf sculpted by Anakron (one of my favorite sculptors) Some cool goblins And some dwarfs, though I know no one cares about them. Some cool busts and a werewolf as well.
  2. I recently concluded a Savage Worlds campaign set in Adon (Reaper's own fantasy setting.) I made the mistake of opening up all of the races to the players, and ended up with quite a, um, diverse group. Still, it gave me an excuse to paint up custom figures for each of them. The colors were chosen according to the players' wishes. All of the miniatures are stock except for the barbarian (his axe haft was way too thin and broke off, so I pinned the head and sculpted new wood around it) and the dwarf (I converted his hammer out of the original axe to fit the character.) From left to right, they were: San'jon, a Mongkohn (Reptus) priest of Payanak, seeking evidence of Mongkohn in the north (the campaign took place in Vestonia and Anhur.) Vi-et, a Koblorlas exiled for refusing to accept the will of the pack regarding his future (he showed shamanic abilities, but had no desire to follow that path.) Oro Jarnvald, a dwarven Runeforger from Kragmarr (custom spellcasting style in which a dwarf can cast a limited number of spells, but only by imbuing his weapons and armor with runes and releasing the power through them.) Komac, a barbarian from Heimdall looking to discover his own worth.
  3. Chaos Wars Miniatures :: Leonaran Dragonmaster Purchased 1991, Painted, at DragonCon. One of the few minis I've ever purchased painted by another artist. More pictures available on SpringPad Listing. Any assistance with finding out this one's origins would be appreciated.
  4. Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba...ba. ba..............Ba, ba, ba, ba.......ba Edit: I revisited him recently, touched him up, revised the water effects and took some better quality photos. This is an example of what the pics and paint job looked like before:
  5. Here are two more speed-painted tabletop figures for D&D. They are Reaper Bones line versions of 02811 Dain Deepaxe and 60044 Damiel Iconic Alchemist. They took me longer than my last speed-paint, because they are more detailed. (Darn Damiel and his fiddly bits!) But they still are speedy for me, about 5-6 hours each, instead of my usual 12-15. They each have a coat of gloss, covered by a coat of matte, for heavy handling, and so they have a few shiny spots here and there.
  6. I currently have a project going in the W.I.P forum, to get all my Stonehaven Dwarfs painted, this thread will contain the results. Any C&C is most welcome. These are the one's I finished a while ago, when I first got them:- (Apologies in advance for the weird backdrop in the piccys, I've lost my old background and I've yet to find a replacement.) The Warrior (with bonus Troll) The Thief and The Druidess The Bard and The Sorceress And this is the first result in my second attempt to get them done:- The King To Be Continued...
  7. So I like working with metallics, and i needed more female dwarves for my collection, so this mini was an obvious buy. There's an incredible level of detail on this mini. Had to add smaller brushes to my collection so I could do the smaller bits justice. The face is better than my previous humanoids, but still not great. I also feel like the ink i used didn't stick to the silver very well. Still one of my favorite works.
  8. So, I've been working my way through the learn to paint kits, and am now on number 5. Just finished Dain yesterday. I must admit, I am not happy with him, but what the hay, I'll show him and his stalwart kin off anyway. Starting with 'cousin' Gargram. The first dwarf I ever painted. Up next. This guy was in a box of mage knight figs I picked up from a friend when her ex didn't come for them. He has MLP inc. stamped on his base but I know no more about him. And lastly Dain Deepaxe himself. Not my best paint job, some things i really like, but he's not as clean and smooth as I want. If he is due for a Simple Green swim or not, I haven't decided, but here he is.
  9. In the preview gallery slated for August definitely a different take vs Old version
  10. Hey all, just finished up my first Bones figure! Here he is, Mr Troll: Pretty rough paint job all things considered, could spend more time on it but I'm calling him done. Good enough to game with. I thought I'd also put up a few other bits and pieces I've completed over the years (it's a pretty rare occurrence). Here's a Warhammer Dwarf Lord: Felix does the best Dwarf sculpts IMHO, GW shouldn't have let him go. Actually, better that they did, he's doing great work with Avatars of War. Some old-school GW, Man O War Dwarf Nautiluses (Nautili?): These were the ones I had difficulty removing the mould lines from due to some slippage of the moulds in the casting process. Can't just phone up for a replacement these days, though. And finally some Militia from Urban War/Void: Really need to finish the bases on these guys, but I'm not sure what I want. Might give them some resin ones at some point (cause I'm a bit lazy like that). I actually painted these guys using only the colours that came in a Vallejo starter set, it was a fun little challenge, particularly getting the denim colour right. Well, that's it for now, comments and thrown pottery welcome as always.
  11. And here is another of my dwarven chieftain, Vigatharn, Alird (dwarven for "Gold Lord) of the Emerald Clan. Had to remove the weapons, since he doesn't use weapons, and his backpack.
  12. Here's is my first mini for the show off forum! wohoo! It's Thorgram, Dwarf Warlord, 14042, painted up as the chieftain of the Thumbbreaker Clan, Thorzin Thumbbreaker. I learned a lot on using blending on this guy and thinning paints. Hope you like him
  13. Cecilia, the Hefty Halfling is a D&D bard/fighter character I am currently playing. She once got the party into a fight with killer mushrooms when she tried to collect them for a stew. And when the battle was over, she still made her stew. This is a Bones figure, with minimal prep. I didn't use any primer, but I did glue her to a gaming base, and extended the base she came with into more rock and dirt using green stuff. I missed a mold line or two, but otherwise, she's not too bad. The surface was not as smooth as polished and primed metal, but for a tabletop mini, that's ok. My friend bought the Vampire Level Bones Kickstarter set, and I'm on deck to paint all the minis for our PCs, so I'm not putting in a lot of time on each one. This one took me 4 hours, including prep. I was lazy about planning a palette, and stole it from a Reaper Paint Crew paint job of another figure. Bonus points if you can identify which one! (The Paint Crew job is much better than mine, especially since this is speed paint.)
  14. Hello Gamers! I took all of the wonderful advice I received from you guys & gals from my previous post and tried to implement it into this Dwarven fighter. Please let me know what you think and how I can improve on my next mini. Thanks ahead of time. Take care.
  15. This is a dwarven battle squid that my adventure group can encounter on the (RPG) adventure game board; they are friendly and will help the group if they are paid enough gold...otherwise they just get drunk with my group at the overnight camp site.
  16. I just got back into painting mini's. I had to stop several years ago because school got in the way, and a few personal issues. But now, I have patience, a better hand and understanding, and I'm proud of my first mini especially after such a long absence. Here's my mini. He's for my DnD Eberron Campaign. His name is Skaven, the Dwarf Fighter. He's level two at the moment. But his favorite thing is riding his soldier ant Pete (whom I tamed on a natural roll of twenty with no modifiers), smoking his pipe, and dual welding his warhammer and hand axe. Have a look and tell me what you think.
  17. Kryn the Red, from the STonehaven Dwarves line. Here she is basecoated. I put down the red and green first, and was worried that she'd turn into Mrs. Claus, but the yellow really helps break it up. I'm planning on putting gold metallic on much of what is now yellow. I also plan to highlight the crap out of her clothes - taking the red and green all the way to white to really emphasize the bright colors.
  18. This is my (NPC) character that is used in the adventure games played by (The Seekers). Voltar will join the group when (1 or more) regular characters are unable to attend a gaming session. It has not happened too often; my group tends to be serious about & dedicated to the game saga.We play every other week (they have been on the saga for 5 months) and Voltar has only joined the group 4 times.
  19. So I ordered a couple of bags of 1" slotted tiles from frp this weekend and I went a bit nuts and Now I have a wip thread just for this order.... So posting in order of interest to me. Or something like that, it's late and I'm pissed my tengu necromancer didn't get to cast animate dead on that troll he just killed. Nice cheap mini. freebooter lillith So after last week we had 2 pc deaths in my game and one of the new players (I have a weak spot to make sure they get attached to their characters) rolled a ratfolk alchemist who wear's full plate and I stumbled apon this in the sale rack.... Had to get it. So this is my first ever resin mini... I must say I don't like the way it behaves it's easy to clean/carve but it's brittle, also takes a Lot more prep work than reaper's bones or worst metal mini's. Game is tomorrow so I suspect I will base it and toss it on the table and paint it later. scibor miniature rat warrior [/url] And we come to the pilot... I have been eying some of these busts for a WHILE now and I noticed they keep putting them on 40-70% sells so I figured now is the time to press myself in the corner and learn something new. I'm really excited to get started on him but a bit worried too. At this point I had to do a LOT of clean up, it came covered in resin bubbles that I had to scrape off with the back of my eXcato and other minor things. scibor mini dwarf pilot lenoardo
  20. Hi guys. I recently got back into making mini's. My first one is making a Dwarf Fighter for my DnD RP Sessions. The problem I'm having is, I don't know where to start. I have a basic idea on what I want, but I just, can't push forward with it. Do you guys have any suggestions on how I should approach this and where I can start? I'll even take suggestions on what to do. I'm just to frustrated to think. Any help or tips you guys give me is much appreciated. Thank you. P.S. Here are a couple of photo's of what my mini looks like.
  21. A friend gave me this figure...it looked so different from the standard dwarf figures. I painted it for my private collection. He told me it was some foreign company but had no information data on it. It was fun to paint and had great figure details.
  22. I saw this set in my hobby shop and thought that it was a great looking set...bought it...painted it...and this vignette is the final results. For myself, I paint figures that I like and that I figure I would enjoy painting...so I have no real topic or title type of figures in my collection.
  23. Well here is my entry for the Wamp forum Avatars of War contest. I am reasonably happy with the result. There are some truely amazing entries over there so if you haven't yet, go and check it out. Still playing with doing different things with mettalics. Trying to give them some color in the darkest recesses. My camera skills still suck, but I'm working on it. LoL. One other note, I am also working on trying to do actual color schemes using the colorwheel. I think it went pretty well. I think the pink flower on the back of the totem is one of my favorite parts.
  24. So I mentioned in my WIP thread for my mohawk dwarf that I was working on dwarven chieftains for the other main clans in the world my husband has created for D&D. I figured while I was taking pictures of the mohawk dwarf (Chieftain of the Erdunir Clan Emerald) that I should make a WIP thread for the rest of them too. First up, chief of the MagmaFist Clan, (14561) King Axehelm of Kragmarr. He's a mountain dwarf. Chief of the duergar SteelSilk clan, (14324) Herryk Aesir. Chief of the Thumbbreaker Clan, also mountain dwarves, (14042) Thorgram. Chief of the deep dwarf Dulvine Clan, (02472) Thain Grimthorn, with weapon modifications. Chief of the hill dwarf Longfang Clan, (02229) Brag Ironballs (te-he!). Last, but not least, the chieftain of the derro dwarves (whose clan name I can't remember..), from MegaMiniatures. That's a lot of dwarves...
  25. With all these great looking miniatures being posted, I thought I'd show off the other end of the spectrum with my latest beginner level dwarf :) I got some feedback on my last mini that I neglected the metallics, so I tried to do a little better this time. C&C welcome!
