  1. So, I had a dolly I had tried and it worked fairly well, so I decided that using dollies was a pretty nifty time saver. To that end, I have started into the process of making myself six specific dollies that I can then cast as often as I need them. From left to right, I have halflings, dwarves, and humans. I'll be making one for each gender in those races. Of course, the human dolly can double for elves or half-orcs (maybe even kitsune or nagaji, if needed). The halflings will work well for gnomes or wayangs or goblins. The dwarves...well, they're probably just going to be for dwarves. (I included some minis for height reference, though my bases are a bit taller). Anyway, the idea here is to just get the good musculature and bare body shape done (but G-rated). I'll post more as I move along with it, but I think it's off to a good start. I went for a generically rocky base as it could be cobblestone of just a rough cavern floor, so it fits more settings than wooden planks of tile flooring would. Comments, compliments, concerns, questions, and such are always welcome :=)
  2. I've got a few of these Em4 Dwarfs (formerly from Grenadier's Fantasy Warriors boxed set) that I bought on a whim. They're ridiculously cheap, so if you're getting something from Em4 anyway then there's no reason not to check them out. Anyway, it's a 26-year-old one-piece plastic mini and it definitely shows in the quality of the cast; there's a hole in the mini between the chest plate and the beard (this is on every cast, not just this one) and there's a large lug on his back that I couldn't be bothered removing considering it was a 50 cent mini. If I were after a fix, I'd consider slinging a spare shield or a scabbard over his back. For the money though, not a bad sculpt and he painted up pretty nicely in the end. Definitely a good option for building a Dwarf army, and if I didn't already have a bunch of WFB Dwarfs I'd order another 100 or so of Em4's.
  3. The Heroines in Sensible Shoes Kickstarter was the first Oathsworn set I picked up, and I found them greatly inspiring. I tried out some new techniques; I flocked around the entire rim of the base due to their shape, and tried out a new method for fire. Not sure how I liked the end result on the fire, and I'll see how much flock lies on my shelves before I judge that. First, my favorite of the set, the Half-Orc Barbarian: The Human Fighter: A Wee Folk Rogue...she's billed as a Halfling, but I mean, c'mon, she's wearing shoes (sensible ones at that). Dwarf with a big hammer: The Forest Gnome Ranger, painted up as a Goblin instead. I find my collection lacking in Goblinettes (Goblinesses? Goblinas?) The Bard: The Dragonborn Sorceress, with her awesome bone staff: Some sort of Wizardy type: A very impatient villager: A nest of very bad things: And finally, some group shots who couldn't keep everyone in focus (woops)
  4. So with only a few hours to go in the Ral Partha Chaos War Kickstarter, here are the last few dwarves I was able to finish before it comes to an end. I still have a few (eight or so) pending to paint, but I'll get to those as soon as I can. I tried keeping somewhat with the original blue and red theme I was tasked with, and I realize I should have probably put a design on that big blue shield, but just ran out of time. I also wonder if I should have given that guy some eybrows. Believe it or not, that figure has eyes, you just can't see them at that angle. Anyhow, hope you enjoy and if you ever thought you wanted some of these the Kickstarter is still open for about two hours..
  5. The last trio of my recent paintworks, a bunch of NPC types who would fit around an inn of ill repute. First, we have the Serving Girl from the Reaper Swine Prince set: Then, a Greek civilian from Foundry: And last, a Dwarf barmaid, who I believe was manufactured by Fenryll. It was bought in a pack of other female Dwarves at a convention many moons ago. And the group:
  6. Here's a really quick (took me 4-5 hours) tabletop level commission piece I painted up for one of my D&D buddies, he's the party's paladin that goes by the name of Koncaron. Figure: Logrim, Dwarf Captain Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 14304 Sculptor: Bobby Jackson Material: Metal WIP Thread Thanks for looking, C&C are welcomed and appreciated!
  7. this guy just has the best helmet (sculpt) another experiment in TMM If my 5e dwarf fighter PC moves to 2 handed style, this will be him.
  8. Hi guys, Here's another one of the Ral Partha dwarves currently on their Chaos Wars Kickstarter. I think he's referred to as a standard bearer, but with the skull and such, along with just kind of his demeanor I've always thought of him more as a Dwarven Cleric or something similar.
  9. I painted this fierce looking dwarf over the last couple of afternoons. I didn't do anything with the base as I like my pre-slotta vintage minis to remain "au natural". He is an oldie from the mists of time by Citadel Miniatures under their "Chronicle Miniatures" range. Thanks for looking!
  10. Hey everyone! I feel like such a slacker with my painting lately, but I'm trying hard to get back to full speed! (I realize I said this last time... but, it turns out that I'm getting the wife into the hobby as well, and that makes for more painting time! ) My new job has some blocks on the Reaper Forums, so it'll be hard for me to keep up with things like I used to, but I will try my best to get back involved with the friendliest painting community there is! Anyway, here's my rather rockin' conversion of Stonehaven Miniature's Dwarf Bard: I have loved this mini since I first backed the Kickstarter years ago but haven't managed to paint him until now! Nevertheless, I'm happy I waited until my skills had improved! As always, thanks a bunch for looking!!!
  11. Hi all, so two more of those grand old Ral Partha dwarves, just finished that up last night. This time I've got a hornblower and a drummer getting geared up and going either to war or a concert, not sure which. Anyhow, their Kickstarter is going on right now, so feel free to show some love for some great, classic figures!
  12. Hi guys, so with the Kickstarter for Ral Partha having just recently launched, I thought I'd share another one of the dwarves that I've just finished up with recently. This one is a Ral Partha Dwarf, previously unreleased, sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize. I should really pay more attention to these things, if I remember correctly, he was dated 1979 on the bottom. He's being offered in the Chaos Wars Kickstarter under the Dwarf Characters 25-459. It's a fun little figure, very straight forward and a nice, quick paint. He's just a guy with a shirt, pants, boots and sword. Fun to paint, and didn't take too long at all. Anyhow, hope you enjoy and please go check out Partha's Kickstarter, tons of really cool stuff!
  13. This lovely pair came from CoolAliasHere. The texture on the eyebeast is great, and has different finishes on different areas. This will be my go to beast the next time I need one in a game, they are killers in any edititon although I havent seen the 5th ed or pathfinder versions yet. The dwarf will make a great NPC, I considered using him for my Adventure League dwarf fighter but I like showing off the figures I painted. Plus I really want to use the "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" from the KS, and it looks like I will have them in less than a month. anyway on to pictures!
  14. Last of tonight's uploads, the more stereotypical Dwarves of Ganesha Games' "Hammer and Forge" Kickstarter. Oh, yeah, and a Weremole. The Dwarf Thief is my favorite of their sculpts, he's got a lot of character and a classic pose.
  15. The next set of Dwarves I recently painted from Hammer and Forge, the Barbarians, Pelters, and Dragonslayers. The Legendary Dragonslayer may have the coolest cloak ever.
  16. Perhaps my favorite for uniqueness from the recent Hammer and Forge Kickstarter for Song of Blades and Heroes from Ganesha Games, I painted up a group of their Undead Dwarves. I never thought I'd say I painted a Dwarf Vampire or Dwarf Banshee, but now I have!
  17. Hi again, still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail. I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM. The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows. Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
  18. Here is my Dwarf Wizard, adventuring companion to my friend's Dwarf Barbarian I posted the other day. As I mentioned elsewhere, in D&D 5th Edition a wizard can cast without penalty in any armor they are proficient with, and Mountain Dwarves get proficiency with light and medium armor by default. They also get battleaxe (and handaxe, throwing hammer and warhammer) profs.....so my character is walking around in Scale Mail with a Battleaxe, hoping all the "let's kill the wizard" first types will enjoy their encounter with the Barbarian...
  19. So here are two more dwarves from Ral Partha's old Fantasy Collectors Series that will eventually be in the next Ral Partha Kickstarter, hopefully coming out sometime this month. A crossbowman and a spearman, nice little figures. Like the last ones I did, they are really pretty small. The square bases they find themselves upon are 20 mm bases.
  20. We're starting a new D&D 5th Edition campaign soon. I offered to paint up a Dwarf Barbarian figure for one of the players who doesn't paint. His only Dwarf Barbarian figure otherwise would have been the old D&D prepaint one, and if you've seen that, it isn't very impressive. Now I'd been building my Dwarf Wizard for the game, and having realized that there is no casting penalty in 5th Ed for wearing armor you are proficient in, I was painting up an Oathsworn Dwarf fighter type, in scale mail and with a battleaxe (which he's also proficient with). He'll be posted up this weekend, once I get him on a base. So we decided, since the Barbarian is carrying a quarterstaff and has no appreciable armor, that we'd use a Khael as the figure for his Barbarian, to confuse all the baddies! ( Did I mention robinh is GMing this?? ) Overall I'm quite happy with him, considering he's for game play, so tabletop-ish. The mold line on his back I'd have cleaned up if I'd realized how much it would stand out, but I went into with my usual "If Bones and tabletop then don't clean up mold lines" plan.
  21. A quick four-hour paint job for a D&D player at my local shop. This guy was fun to paint, and I didn't even notice the mountains on his shield until after I'd painted the bright yellow thunderbolts on top of them (oops). EDIT: The base hadn't quite dried when I took this picture. I went ahead and added some grass to it after.
  22. Hi again everybody! So my last little chunk of miniatures, another quartet, is a group of miniatures that will be re-released under the Chaos Wars Kickstarter guise in the near future at Ral Partha. Their next Kickstarter will highlight dwarves and undead, as well as a nice assortment of new and old figures, one of which is a new 25 mm scale Vampire Queen from Julie Guthrie which is just beautiful. So anyhoos, here they are! I added three different views of the dwarf with the mattock/pick and shield because he's kind of interesting from all angles with his pose. The other three are pretty straight forward. I should also mention that I took these photos with my new iPhone 6S, which really did end up turning out a lot better than my little Canon.
  23. Newbie painter here. I've really been struggling with the concept of highlighting, but I've been practicing on my newly acquired Zombicide: Black Plague figures. This is probably the best work I've done so far. I also struggle mightily with eyes, yet managed to do some decent ones here, which does wonders for my confidence. You might remember that I posted some time ago asking for help on the Nun hero whose face I screwed up. I still haven't gone back to her, yet, but eventually I'll have to. Here is the dwarf hero, Samson.​ Tips welcomed.
  24. Hi there, just finished these over the weekend, some old school Ral Partha dwarves from I can't remember what year, but somewhere between 1979 and 1982. I've always had a thing for this set, always enjoyed it as it was an old set of non-military type dwarves, truly "personalities" from a bygone age. I've had a bit of lighting problems with these ones as I seem to have a lot any more, but here are the best pictures I could take:
  25. This is an old RAFM dwarf warrior released in 1989 if I remember correctly. He was released for the 'Death in the Dark' miniature skirmish game that RAFM produced way back in the day. I never played the game, but I do have a few of the miniatures in my hoard. This is one of them. He's a little short by today's standards, so I decided to give him a little 'step up'. C and C is very welcome. ETA---and I can see the mistakes, now that they have blown up a gajillion percent.
