  1. Here's a few of the dwarves I've been painting up. Reposted with some better pictures this time. There's more but this is plenty for one post.
  2. More old school lead today; this one is an old Dwarven Archer by Grenadier, painted to table top as usual. He's a little small, so I may use him as a gnome. I hope you like him.
  3. The adventuring party from my Pathfinder campaign: Reaper 14318: Cleric of Ishnar Reaper 02669: Oberon Half-Orc Reaper 89020: Harsk, Iconic Dwarf Ranger Reaper 77049: Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger
  4. As part of Inarah's old of the year paint binge, I finished off this guy. He's a dwarf warrior made by Grenadier for their old Fantasy Warriors mass combat game. It was intended to be competition for GW's WHFB, but it never quite took off. It's still available (along with a lot of other cool old Grenadier sculpts) from Mirliton miniatures. Table top paint. Let me know what you think.
  5. Going to finish up his medallion with some free hand and call it done. Hope all of you have a lovely Christmas Maybe Santa will get me some photography skills next year ;)
  6. Another go at NMM. Hope you like it. But if you all could find the time to critique my work, it would be very much appreciated. Cheers!
  7. I posted another one of Heroforge's custom ordered 3D printed minis the other day, and I just finished another one. This one didn't have the texture issues that the other three I've painted did - the only place I really notice rough texture is on the back side of the shield, which is fine. This particular character is the Paladin in the party I DM for (5th Edition, homebrew campaign). The symbol on his shield represents his deity (goddess of light, sunburst symbol) and the dwarven homeland he's far from (mountains). He recently joined an in-game faction called the Queensguard, so their symbol & colors are painted on his right pauldron.
  8. Hey folks! I was looking through some old Forgotten Realms stuff the other evening, and came across my copy of FR1, Waterdeep and the North, and looking at the cover art by Keith Parkinson, I decided that I would like to attempt to re create that as a diorama. So I spent some time with the figure finder, and tried sorting through the characters shown: Beholder- Not sure yet which one I will use to do Xanathar.. The fighter- no mini really jumped out at me when I sorted for male human scale mail. I tried assorted weapons, but again nothing clicked. The CPA- again, sorting human male cloth / clothing and nothing worked... The Dwarf - 03626: Gruff Grimecleaver seems to have good possibilities, the fact that the peg leg is on the opposite side is immaterial. The Drow lady- I would have though a female drow in a bikini and boots would have been relatively easy to find, but again no luck searching under female elf / dark elf... Intellect Devourers- Nothing comes up under that term, and not really sure what to convert from.... I thought that a puma/cougar mini could be modified... I am willing to do modifications.... So if anyone has any suggestions for me, that would be great! Thanks George
  9. This resin beauty was on sale for only three bucks during CMON's BF sale. As I paint slowly (<1hr day) and Reaper's holiday minis didn't go on sale till the 7th, I figured this would be my Santa dwarf I paint up this year as the Reaper ones won't get here in time. Day One... Partially assembled (axe head isn't glued on yet), and partially basecoated. Nothing fancy...
  10. I needed a break from my samurai project, so I decided to work on this dwarf pirate from M Proyec. It's a little bit bigger than the standard gaming figure, roughly 46mm to the eyes. I wanted a slightly less natural skin tone, so I mixed in some Burgundy Wine with the Rosy Shadow, then some Vampiric Shadow with Fair Skin and Vampiric Skin with Fair Highlight. It created a paler, colder skin. I still want to go in with glazes to add more color variation and reinforce the shadows, but that will wait until after I do the hair. The coat is a dull red I created using a 3 to 2 mix of Violet Red with Dark Elf Highlight for the base. It's shaded with Burgundy Wine and highlighted with a 50/25/25 mix of Fire Red, Dark Elf Highlight, and Vampiric Shadow. The final highlights are made by adding in a bit more Vampiric Shadow to that mix. The pants are still a work in progress. I began by sketching in the stripes, then I did most of the shading and highlighting on the white (cleaning up the stripes as I went). The blue stripes still need shading and highlighting though. For the comparison, the first image is the coat with shading and midtone, but no highlight. The bandanna also is just a dark base. The rest of the images shows it with those sections completed. Makes it much easier to see the difference the increased contrast of the highlights makes.
  11. Does anyone have Sharda, iconic shaman? I'd like to see better pictures of her, including the back of her. I have an idea for her, but don't want to commit to it if she won't suit.
  12. The Sentinel He stood upon the outlook, his grizzled features and single eye looking down upon the massive horde of stinkin' orcs that were arraying against his people. He was one of the elite, the Sentinels of his people. He must warn them before it was too late... Figure: Dwarf Ranger, Alliance of the Bat Manufacturer: Norsgard Material: Metal Shield Modification made ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This figure was for an on-the-side exchange with fellow forum member, robinh. We met up this past Saturday night while he was visiting Vegas for a conference and I asked him for a little inspiration. He gave it to me in the form of something that was fun and modded that he could put on his display shelf. He has a running joke with Jasonator about having orange paint on every figure that he does. I took the opportunity to paint his pants orange. Anyhow, here he is! C&C are always welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking! P.S. I didn't do a whole WIP of this guy as I was under a time crunch to finish him before meeting up with Robin. I did however take a few pics of the WIP on how I did his shield, before I added the design.
  13. After taking a class with Banshee, I decided to finally tackle my Mount Everest of busts. I swore after working on the Grudge, I was going to paint something that wasn't a bust next, but alas I have fallen back. I am very happy with the face, and the hair, like the Grudge, I am struggling with right now. It has a long way to go, so I just need to chill a bit. Nothing about the hair is even close to being done. I expect to make good progress this Saturday at paint group, or at least get a feel of where I want to go with it.
  14. I painted my first "Bailey Silverbell" Reaper miniature in 2012. I painted another version in between projects over the last few months and gave her a Little Red Riding Hood theme. I loved this Reaper mini back then and I still love it now-- only this time I was able to try my hand at a few more techniques I've learned, including some NMM. If you haven't painted a "then & now" miniature, I hope you try it sometime. It's truly rewarding to see your improvement over the years!
  15. Today I output the dwarves ("Dwarves Veterans" by Scibor) What I like about them is that they're bulky and (almost power-)armoured like an army from under the mountain should look like, yet still fitting into a fantasy plot. I was a bit worried about all the ornamental details on them but these chubby little tin cans practically paint themselves: sorry for the bad photo
  16. Back with my second mini! This guy is the dwarf berserker lord / slayer from the Avatars of War line. It was only after I'd primed him that I realized what poor quality the casting seemed compared to my previous mini, I filled in where I could with GS, but unfortunately nearly half of his face was missing... But rather than try and sculpt him a new left eye and cheek, I took the lazy way out and made it a feature. I tried a lot of new things on this mini, blood, snow, aged bronze/brass, and was my first time painting so much skin and hair. I'm not totally happy with how he came out, overall he seems too brown, and the wash I applied to his skin made the recesses between the muscles a bit too blocky, but maybe I'm just picking faults after spending too many of my evenings for the past week with him. Good enough for the table at least. Funnily my favorite part of the whole model now he's done is how the ork's head he's standing on came out. As always advice is welcomed, as I'm still new at this.
  17. Spamming more WIPs... I've been busy... I did this paint job a while back and just decided to base him. I went back in and did some lining, which helped, but now I'll need to clean up a bit.... hoping I didn't open a can of worms. front: back:
  18. This is my first time posting on the forums, but I've been lurking and admiring the talent and the friendly C&C. I've been painting for a bit, but I'm nowhere near the skill I'd like to be yet, and any advice is welcome. I paint minis for my fellow party members in my Pathfinder games, and this is my most recent. I'm sorry for the low-quality photos, but all I've got right now is my iPhone. This character's player described him as having black hair, green eyes, tan skin, and brown everything else. I like this mini so much, though, that I didn't want to have it look like poop, so I took a lot of time to try to make sure that each brown thing was distinct and interesting. I think I did alright. Without further ado, here is Jimli, newly-dwarven sorcerer.
  19. Here he is. My dwarven priest Faenon. He will be used tonight, as a matter of fact, in a D&D game. My home game has fallen apart, so I am taking him to an expeditions game. This should be a good time! His hammer is my attempt at a coldsteel hammer. Its darker in color, and more dense (i guess) for slaughtering those pesky undead. another angle booty shot Thanks for looking! CAH
  20. I had mentioned in a previous post asking if people had a specific process or steps they used when painting models. One of the themes I noticed from several was working from the smallest part out, and even from the face out. It was mentioned that it makes the model more "alive" to start with the face. So, today I did just that. I have to say, I feel like I know where I am going now with this piece. Almost like the little guy is talking to me. I am painting this one as a character for my D&D game, and seeing his face is helping me visualize more easily where I want the finished product to be. Faenon Bloodmane - WIP One of the effects I am going to attempt with this model is glowing. I have the eyes solid green, with pale green iris. Its hard to see in this picture, but the end result is going to be the various runes glowing similar green, as if he is casting a spell. After a quick hit with a clear coat, I am going to try to wash in some lighter green around the eyes to give it a cascade effect. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks! CAH
  21. My obsession with Warlord dwarves continues with Jason Wiebe's Kragmarr Guard. Like this guy a lot, pretty simple and dwarfy. Kept with my usual dwarf-soldier-type blue. Got a little carried away with the shield, heh, but figured I might as well have some fun. Thanks for looking!
  22. Here is one of the crossbowmen for my Warband. He was a lot of fun to paint. This was the first one I tried using sealers in between washes/layers. I am really happy with how he came out. Bloodmane Crossbowman - (Yet to be named) CAH
  23. Figure: Freja Fangbreaker, Dwarf Sergeant (SKU #14085) Manufacturer: Reaper Material: Metal Since I started working on this one last night, I figured I might as well go ahead and post a WIP thread. This is going to be a PC for one of my D&D players. He sent me a pic of a female dwarf cleric for inspiration. I went looking in Reaper's store and ended up with Freja. Inspiration picture Conversion weapon swap of axe head for hammer and modification of shield are required to fulfill the vision. Hammer was pinned and glued on. The shield, I had to work on a bit harder. It required me snipping off the metal studs on her original shield, filing them down to be smooth, then I worked on the back of the shield and snipped off the raised metal edges and filed them down smooth. After all this, I used ProCreate epoxy putty and super glue to affix a piece of plasticard that I cut to the appropriate size and shape over the shield in her left hand. Left it all to cure overnight and tonight I'll get her primed up and see about filling any gaps that need to be fixed (if there are any). Current WIP pics!
