  1. Hey all, just a quick picture of an Imperial Dwarf from the early days of Warhammer Fantasy. He is pulling duty as the Noble for my Mordheim Dwarf Treasure Hunters these days. His color scheme set the stage for the entire warband (which I can post another time if there is interest). Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for looking!
  2. Here is my painted rendition of Staunton Vhane, a dwarf with some fancy armor, a fancy weapon, and a very bad outlook. He serves Deskari, the demon-lord of locusts. I sculpted the figure based on the painting by Wayne Reynolds from the cover of Pathfinder Adventure Path #84 [edit: #74], "Sword of Valor": http://static1.paizo.com/image/product/catalog/PZO/PZO9074.jpg After I took the first photos of the "finished" figure, I decided that I didn't like the more muted salmon-pink/brown of the base, so I punched up the color with some glazes of purple, red, and orange. Now it is more consistent with the saturation of the green armor. The stock miniature is released with only one horn/antenna to match the interior art in the Pathfinder adventure, but I added the second horn (carved from the sword of another figure and then attached to his helmet), because I figured that the second one was present in the cover art, but foreshortened and hard to see. I enjoyed the challenge of sculpting his intricate insectile armor and the locust on his glaive ... but at some point I also started imagining that the blade was shaped like the head of a rhinoceros. Do you also see the horn on its nose, the eye-hole and nostril, and the locust-wing ear? You may notice that the photograph of the unpainted stock figure has the one horn in a raised position: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Pathfinder/latest/60186#detail/60186_w_1 This position allows the figure to be cast in one piece, but I intended the horn to be bent backward. That's easy to do with pewter, if you bend slowly. (I did the same with the hair on Shalelu: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Pathfinder/oldest/60042#detail/60042_w_1.) Enjoy! Derek
  3. As one of my many ongoing projects, I'm stripping and repainting some old original HeroQuest minis. I don't have a complete set anymore (gave almost all of mine away, including all the expansions), but recently got a second hand set that had some Testors (or similar) slapped on it, and it makes for a fun project to try to recover lost detail. The dwarf in particular was pretty caked up. Being the iconic White Dwarf model, I took some extra time on him, really trying to elevate what are essentially pretty detailless models by modern standards. The gang: Anyway, pretty easy to say they turned out better than my first attempts at mini painting way back then when I was using toothpicks as brushes and second hand craft paints...
  4. What kind of head is that on the staff anyhow? Lioness?
  5. Here's the first mini out of my Stonehaven WIP: SD09: Stonehaven Dwarf Fallen King As always, C & C welcome!
  6. Even though I didn't post pictures on the forum ahead of time, I still had WIP pics throughout the build process for the Fall Exchange Project that I entitled "Showdown at McFiggin's Tavern". Show-off thread is located here. This is pretty picture intensive, so I'll break it up a bit with the first couple of posts. Starting out, I'll show you all what I did with the tavern/base, then the orc and then finally the dwarf. I followed this tutorial on how to do the bricks/cobblestones. They were super-glued down in place, I added very fine sand to between the cobblestones and then covered the whole thing with a few coats of reaper brush-on sealer to seal it all down. The door was kindly provided by Bonwirn, this is a Hirst Arts piece, it's actually a wardrobe, but I liked it for the door. The wood around the door is very light weight balsa wood. I measured it out and cut it with a sharp hobby knife. The "McFiggins" sign was from the Oathsworn Dwarves kickstarter, I just got the bases and the scenery pieces. After I had the balsa all glued together and the door placed in, I filled the gap around the door with wood filler. I then cut plasticard to size to make it smooth and put "resin sand" from liquitex over the front to give it the stucco look. The top was another thin piece of plasticard, I took out a bunch of popsicle sticks and cut their ends off to size and super-glued them down in layers. The sides of the roof are also popsicle sticks that I cut to angles. Here's the base with more detail, just used some secret weapon washes mostly 'baby poop' and 'sewer water' in the crevices, and used stone grey and rainy grey RMSP paints with some rainy grey/ghost white mixture for highlights. More details added here.
  7. From Reapers Facebook page- Santa Dwarf sculpted by Jason Wiebe is coming to town for a November 28th release.
  8. I've recently relized that the end of 2014 is fast approaching and I'm nowhere close to completing my second (and most important) painting goal of 2014: that all 2014 purchases must be finished within 2014 (excluding kickstarters). I've spent most of my (recently dwindling) paint time just working through my quickdip pile and really slacking off the metal pile. But as 2014 moves towards its end I really need to pick up the pace. So here's the Dwarven Bar Patron from Hasslefree Miniatures.
  9. Nah, it's just Nord Kegbreaker, by Bob Olley. A great sculpt that's going to make a nice marker at the D&D table for my Dwarven cleric and brewer, Kaglin Busystone. Same-ol' thing for me, painting this, except I did switch palettes to one of the "egg-carton" ones, as I childishly call them. But that did let me really water my (crappy craft) paint down more than usual. Trying to smooth out my application of the paint. And then this picture, not-good, because I was trying to get the coloring on the cap to show in a photo which I otherwise wasn't having any luck at all doing: Thanks for looking! Any comments or criticism is appreciated.
  10. Here is another bones figure for your viewing. Finished him up tonight with a rather simple base. Glad to finally be back in swing of painting regularly [not quickly]. So I present Khael Stonekindle aka Gandwarf Thanks for viewing and any C&C you feel like giving.
  11. I fiiiinally got around to painting my Balan Ironbreaker after having him on my desk for months. I'm so in love with this sculpt. Don't quite get the tongue; but I so love this sculpt. I was really happy with his hair. I got some brown mixed in with a wash, and it was layered brown/gray/white pretty nicely (for me), but it didn't want to show like I wanted in the photos, I think. I'll be honest and say I think this is some of my best work so far, though there's a lot on which I'd like to improve. Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are most welcome.
  12. While I catch up on all the posts I've missed over the past few weeks, I thought I'd post another WIP. Seemed that posting these wip's kept me painting more frequently. So to get more Bones I painted up before Bone II comes in December here I go again. Here is my progress on Khael for your viewing. Pictures taken with phone.
  13. Prepped this guy last night. Changed his chainmail into leather, and sculpted the base to match the original Reaper (one of the rare non-broccoli bases out there). Sat down to paint him today and game with him tonight (in just an hour or so in fact). Certainly not a competition piece but he will get the job done for the game.
  14. This wizard was my first large experiment with OSL. The WiP is here. He's now going to face our party of PC's in the Dragonlance campaing we're playing, playing the role of Rance Coalmount, Thane of the Daergar. Not our favorite dwarf, to be sure. But the party has bigger fish to fry in this battle, so he may yet survive; we'll see. Comments and critiques are always welcome!
  15. I wanted to make a thread for the miniature I painted for Fishnjeeps for the Fall Exchange. I had alot of fun painting him and felt he turned out well. Fishnjeeps hoped for a Dwarf miniature with a long beard. After going through my collection of unpainted miniatures I had several to choose from, and like always decided to go to the Game Store just to see what they may have. Normally I would then come home with a few more miniatures just in case my mood changed on what to paint. This time I only came home with one, Reaper Miniatures King Thorgram sculpted by Werner Klocke. When I saw him I thought he was perfect as his beard was very regal and he even was wearing a bear pelt cloak. When I got home I opened him up and immediately scrutinized the miniature looking for mold lines that may pose problems and to my satisfaction the sculpt was very clean with no major flaws. After deciding to paint the King I was torn between two color schemes. Since a few of you have called me "The Mistress of Crimson Tresses" I of course wanted to go with red hair. With his bird I pictured him being used as a druid or ranger (sans bow), so ultimately I settled with green and brown, with gold accents. I wanted his main focal point to be his face and beard and his bird to be secondary. I wish I could get his hair to show better in the photos as I put alot of work in adding depth and variation to it. Only fishnjeeps could tell me if I succeeded in that, as he now resides with him. I really enjoyed painting King Thorgram and I hope that shows with how he turned out. Presenting King Thorgram Dwarf Master of the Forest. Here is a closeup of his bird C&C welcome
  16. So, I think the new phone is already affecting the qualify of the photos, which, really shouldn't be surprising. I still need a better light source, though. Let's start off with something green...
  17. So, I promised to show off my Current Projects in the Fall Exchange Thread, so here goes nothing! So, first off, I have been having troubles with my Camera. It cannot seem to take non-fuzzy pics of minis consistently, even in macro mode. I took about 30 pictures of my current project minis...11 of those pics came out okay-ish. But at least one of every mini was included in those pics, so here are most of those. Project #1: Dragonborn Barbarian! Been playing Wednesday Night D&D stuff and have become friends with a couple of regulars. Both have been impressed with my painting "Skills", so I'm making minis for them. The First is playing a Dragonborn Barbarian with a fire/Volcanic flare. So, I took to my Plasticrack Chop-Shop, and created the Abomination above. And there he is with a coat of Primer and the first red Base coat on his scales. Project #2: The other Player at the Wed. Game Is fairly young, about 14-15 ish. He has come a long way though, especially since he decided to try playing a Dwarf Paladin. So, I'm making him a custom Mini. Again, I went to the Chop-Shop, but was a little more reserved this time. I chopped off the original Axe, added an Icy Warhammer from a D&D Mini and a Beer Stein I got at GenCon a few years ago at a Mini Class. Project #3: Diversify my Tieflings! And Finish old projects while I'm at it :P This Lady has been half finished for months. And Yes, the pink hair IS intentional. Project #4: Mari the Sniper Ranger. This one is for a PC in my F2F 4E D&D Campaign that I run on Saturdays. This mini is apparently Admiral Thrune from some Pathfinder Adventure done up for their Pre-Painted Minis. All I care about though is that this is a Female Human with a Crossbow! You would not think that would be something difficult to find, but you would be wrong. Original Paint job was in a kind of bright red. Looks very different in these colors. Anywho, Please comment. I live on Kind Words and Good Advice:) GF
  18. Another finished mini! I feel that this is a different level of painting for me. He has close to 14 hours of actual work in him. I have a WIP post here : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56398-fishnjeeps-paints-durin-dwarf-pathfinder-sgt-14465/?p=947468 His left eye presented a bit of a challange in the way it was sculpted, so I gave him a scar there. This mini has a LOT of little details and I feel I piced them out well and still kept the figure's colors in balance. With all of the detail he has, I didn't feel he needed a fancy base. So I used some Army Painter black fine gravel and some of their static grass and tufts to give a more barren feel to his base. In hindsight, I think I would have liked a more dwarven base like those made by armorcraft, but I didn't want to try to unglue him halfway through painting. Anyway, may I present, Durin Dwarf Pathfinder Sgt. Also known as Glarif the Impulsive Dwarf in the pbp in my sig. Enjoy! And as always, spay & neut... Wait, I mean Comment and Critique!!

    Rescue Mission

    Hey all! Second post in a night. Whoo! Okay, well Vanja was my first mini ever, and I've decided I'd like to post my 2nd and 3rd attempts at mini-painting. These are both non-reaper, to my knowledge. They were purchased from the $1 "Box of Misfit Minis" from my local comic store, so I decided to rescue them in an attempt to give them new life. As I mentioned in my previous topic, I use Amsterdam acrylics (red, yellow, blue, black, white) and mix them. I also have a few metallic craft paints that I use as well (and in the case of the blue dude, I used a bit of nail polish, too.) As always, critiques are welcome! EDIT: I've been informed that the first mini is a Beastman of Chaos from Games Workshop and the dwarf is RAFM. Not sure how to edit tags at this point, but once I do, the info will be updated. Beastman of Chaos Crossbow Dwarf
  20. This mini, along with two others, got put to the top of the painting order by Malefactus, who was EXTREMELY kind to send them my way. I'm trying the new WIP... but, as with my consolidated WIP... this will be sporadic and slow (at best). Camera is not on my side tonight, but you get the basics. I'm about 2 hours into the actual painting of the mini, about 4 hours total with prep and basing.
  21. I painted up this fellow last weekend in order to kick myself into gear. He was a nice and quick paintjob (probably almost qualifying for that 5 color/2 hour challenge). I decided to leave off any blood and make it ambiguous as to whether he's unconscious or dead. You also get a nice shot of the dust and lint from my apartment.
  22. To kick things off, some various Half-Orcs. One of these days I'll get home in time to take photos outside in natural light.
  23. This is the Chainmail Mordengard Dwarf Fighter from Wizards of the Coast. I am painting my Mordengard Dwarves with an alternate color scheme to represent a planetouched dwarven subrace. This dwarven subrace all have grey skin, all black eyes, and metallic hair.
  24. So I took a short break to fix the wifes car and have now gotten back to painting again with a new figure. My previous incomplete WIP's will get some love again soon enough. I've been wanting to paint a Dwarf now for some time and this is by far one of my favorite Dwarf sculpts. He has a TON of little details on him and I am hoping to pick them out without making everything look too busy. I'll try to remember what paints were used as I go though many of them are limited edition or sample paints from reaper. I began by cleaning off all of the flash (there wasn't much) and spraying him with Krylon duo primer in white. I was going to pin the axe hand however I don't have a small pinvise and the large stationary pin vise i have was burried. So I superglued without pinning. Should be OK since I don't use these for gaming much. On to the Paints. All my colors are thinned down approximately 1:1 with water. For the face, I used MSP HD Suntan Flesh. These HD paints have become my go to for flesh tones. They cover nicely with 1 or 2 coats even when thinned. I did add a couple more coats in the areas of the face I wanted to be darker. I will eventually go in with a darker color to bring the contrast up a bit but in person you can kind of see it already. The bags are Painted in 2-3 coats of MSP Snakebite Leather. This color is starting to grow on me a bit and I am finding new uses for it. I may go back and paint a few other leather Items with this color later. I'm using 2 different leather base coats to diferentiate the different layers of leather on the figure and to keep the colors balanced somewhat. Finally I base coated all of the armor and metal areas that I intend to be brass or bronze in a thinned coat of MSP Brown Liner. I've been using brown liner for a while now as a metal base coat as it gives a better look than black does. It really helps with golds and bronzes, but it also gives silver a bit of a grittier look as well. I am trying a new bronze technique that I came up with myself so we will see how it goes. I'll have more pics tomorrow. As usual, any critiques are welcome.
  25. While Red Box Games is my favorite miniature line the trend is that I just buy the miniatures without painting them. Frankly because they scare me. The detail is smaller than what I'm used to and I'm afraid to screw it up. It's much easier to pick up and paint other miniatures because it doesn't really matter as much if I do screw them up :) But every once in a while I do gather enough courage to pick one up and finish it. Like Birgir the dvergr. I painted this for a DnD one shot at the local gaming store. I didn't know if it would be using miniatures (and it didn't) but if it did I wanted to make sure that I had a miniature to represent the premade characters. I'm very pleased with the result even if I didn't get to use him. I'm sure there will be other opportunities.
