  1. Bregnor Hefthammer is the older brother of Feanon Hefthammer and Norim Hefthammer. Unlike his sibilings, he retired from a life of adventure and returned to his mountain home to assist with its rebuilding. A devout follower of Moradin, Bregnor is never without his hammer, though he as since put away his armor. He has a distinct love for ale and crafting, and on more than one occasion, tried to combine the two with little success. Bregnor (front) Bregnor (back) I tried to go for a brassy/gold look with the hammer. Overall I think he came out pretty good. His clothing was intentionally kept simple. The hardest part for me was the eyes, which I could not seem to get right. I am still trying, but I may hang it up on this one. Side note, I think I need some new brushes. Hope you like him, and as always CC is welcome! CAH
  2. I finished this guy up a few days ago. I just now got some pictures of him. I'm fairly happy with how he turned out. I've been working on him along with a few other things that I've either been meaning to get to or needed to be finished up. He's the first one done despite being a "meaning to get to" rather than a "needing to be finished." Also, I think I may have figured out this camera thing on the Ipad. He's another Pathfinder Society character. He only gets played when my wife plays her Sorceress though. He'll be a Drunken Master/ Alchemist named Dharim Barrelfist. Enjoy.
  3. I already posted some pictures of my Khael miniature some time ago, but I had a second Dwarf pack from the Kickstarter, so I decided to do the second one slightly different. Looking at the original there were two aspects of the miniature I did not like (I love the miniature anyway :P): The oversized sword and the lack of texture on the staff. Ok, so what to do? First I cut of the staff entirely and replaced it with some wire. I then proceeded to use the dragon head from Galladon's staff (77054) and altered it slightly to allow a more organic fit to the new staff. The idea was that the staff was found as one piece and then carved into a dragon's head. The second step was to remove the sword and resculpt the robes. I then attached some shapes that resemble vials to the now empty space, as well as a feather and a mushroom. After this I covered it with greenstuff to achieve a bulged out look for a knapsack with some of the contents still showing. Some straps and string add interest. I am not sure what colour scheme I will go for this time. I like the one I used, but I also saw a beautiful combination of green robe and blue hat with a reddish-brown beard. Let me know what you think about this conversion.
  4. Rastl

    14146 - Fulumbar

    I can't resist well sculpted hair and tend to go overboard with painting it. Luckily this fella was for tabletop so I think I stopped at 7 colors. Maybe.
  5. I made this one for a player. The photograph doesn't quite catch the green correctly. The shield, satchel, and tabard are a dark, deep green that looks much better in person.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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 ;)
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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:
  23. 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.
