  1. This is Ametrine.e looked more like a gnome to me than a dwarf.more so the next time I paint her, we'll see what we end up with! She is incredibly cute and a lot of fun!
  2. Hey, all! Over the course of Bones 5, there were a few models that I was hoping for. I would say that Reaper totally exceeded my expectations and covered about 90% of my personal hopes. One of the things that wasn't in there was an Azer. For those of you who don't know, an Azer is a creature from the plane of fire, and they resemble Dwarves. They are so hot that their heads are covered in flames, and often this heat causes their weapons to be set aflame as well. Since I had an extra Dark Dwarf Pounder from my November order, I figured that I'd try my hand at a conversion. I have exactly zero experience with sculpting other than filling gaps or making a rock or two, but I have YouTube, so why not? The first thing that I did was get the model and choose a base to put it on. I went with a simple flagstone base from Secret Weapon. Next, I shaved off and filed down the little "3 Nail" sigil that these dudes wear. I like that Sigil just fine, but its more representative of Duergar than an Azer, so off it comes. I also clipped away the oval base and filed the feet to be flat. Next, I washed the model and pinned it to a cork. I also washed the base and drilled a hole for the pin, and then stuck that on a cork as well. Once the model was dry, I mixed up some Green Stuff and followed along with a step-by-step for fire that I found online. Basically, you start with a cone and stick it down. I put it on the Dwarf's head, and then used a thin tool to push down the edges of the cone into the head and shoulders. Then, I used tweezers to twist and pull the top of the cone into a sort of whirlwind. Then, dipping the tweezers in water to keep them from sticking, I took sections of the Green Stuff and pulled outward and twisted. Once I had the flames the way I wanted them, I went back in with the tool and made more indentations in the fire. I did the same thing with the flames on the weapon. I'm waiting for him to dry and cure right now, and then I'll get on to priming him and painting him up this weekend! Stay tuned!
  3. Fresh off the painting table come the Dwarf Adventurers II from Stonehaven Miniatures. Their first Kickstarter, another set of Dwarfs, was the second Kickstarter I ever backed! First, a group of the "traditional" Dwarfs, if any of them can be called as such. One of my favorites of the set, a Dwarf Barber: Here are the Dwarfs I thought would work better as Duergar. My Duergar take some inspiration from World of Warcraft's Dark Iron Dwarfs, not just having white hair. Gives them a bit of variety. Dead Tom: And preparing for Eberron, the Dwarforged:
  4. A year ago I painted my first minis for D&D. It's not my best work, but it's most definitely an upgrade!
  5. "I need a swig of some strong, Dwarven ale!" -Baldur's Gate Jalarak Leadbarrels, stepping out of the Firendly Arm Inn, bringing the next round to his waiting adventuring party. (1368 DR, Colorized) (Ignore the water spots on my backdrop. I have cats and they knock things over and don't tell me about it. I have to find out later, for myself.)
  6. In the spirit of this colorful june, my hommage to my community ^^ I'm a bit hesitant with the tattoo's outcome, but besides that pretty happy with the result. If anyone wants to visit my insta gallery & give it a like & follow it means everything ^^ its @albertnyarla
  7. Freja Fangbreaker. On the topic of female, form fitting armour, it turns out that the upper chest area of female dwarves is invulnerable to all kinds of piercing and slashing weapons, so it does not need any armour! Ain't it great? Presumably the prominent devils dumplings act as bumpers and the impressive cleavage does not at all act as a funnel for spears? Seriously though, this is a first Bones KS model, made in the softer early Bonesium. And still it has rather good detail, only slightly shallow on the quilting on the back and on the lower right hand arm armour. Which goes to show that on larger figures that has deeper details (A dwarf counting as larger? Maybe I should say wider?) Bones is a good material. 77073 Freja Fangbreaker Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D printed base
  8. Another miniature that had been on hold for a bit, I actually started him a few months ago but set him aside for other miniatures and hobby's but now he is finished
  9. When you can ride a bear?! This is one I found at the gaming shop and thought was too awesomely unique to pass up. It was also part of the batch of strong heroines I bought up for my birthday in December and have since been painting. My first time painting irises in the eyes of a mini as well.

    ‘80s Dwarf

    I was gifted a box of about a hundred old minis last year, some painted, some not. The original paint jobs were serviceable, but basically base coats with no wash or shading to speak of. I’ve been painting about a year and a half. This fellow was painted, so I stripped him down, then using the original color scheme, re-did him. Except for the hair. He was originally a brunette. I really like the sculpt, especially that beard!
  11. I really enjoyed hanging out with Jason Wiebe at ReaperCon. After a few drinks, he started telling the group of us stories, and they got funnier as the night went on. 74 I'm not sure if it was more due to what he was drinking or what I was. Anyway, this special edition was released for his benefit and I was glad to purchase it. Apparently, he favors Hawaiian shirts so of course, I had to try that. this the first time I have painted a combover. Johan Rumbleguts is an ally of my Golddigger clan - as he is approximately wearing their colors.
  12. A collection of Dwarven terrain designed by Printable Scenery. All pieces were printed on a Creality Ender 3.
  13. Still working on NMM. This was a really fun dude to paint. The Dungeon Dwellers are so cool. I really cant express enough just how much I like them!
  14. I have had some VMA Signal Red (metallic) gathering dust for quite a while, so this morning I decided to try it out. Three hours later (including finding and shaking the paint) I have a complete test subject. I think that given the time to really work with it a person could do a decent TMM red with it. As is, I have a tabletop ready dwarf.
  15. I started this conversion a loooong time ago for a friend who needed a dorf with an axe, and I did not at the time have a dorf with an axe. I was never quite happy with it, and the game died quickly. I forgot all about this little guy until recently, and I decided to finish him, and queue him up for the paints. I initially started with a clay weapon sculpt, but while I was fiddling with it it broke. In a fit of rage I cut a piece of aluminum stock and after a few hours of shaping we got here. I did a bit more shaping after this photo, and I plan on doing a bit of Apoxie Sculpt to blend in where the old weapon was cut away. For the surgery I used a #11 Scalpel. All the shaping was done with a #8 Double Cut Mill Bastard and diamond files.
  16. The first painted mini of the year! I really love this sculpt. My favorite part by far is the comb over :D I did a poor job of cleaning the miniature before priming and starting to paint it (like always), so there's a bit of grain on the axe and other irregularities. But nothing to harmful.

    Dwarf Engineer

    Presenting a Dwarf Engineer from Stonehaven, having recently backed their second Dwarf kickstarter, I thought I'd better finish what I got from their first many moons ago. This one is a bit rough around the edges, I didn't put much effort into prepping my minis in ye olden days, plus he's been partially painted and stripped at least a couple of times by this point, but I think he turned out okay. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  18. Here another one , just finishing base for those guys now , so couple more to post ;)
  19. If my memory is working properly, I think this guy came out a blister pack marked Ral Partha Imports, so he may have originally been a citadel sculpt. In any case, he's older than at least some of you reading this. His paint got pretty badly dinged up in a move, so i decided to fix him up. Which led to a complete repaint. I hope you like him.
  20. This is from Atlantis Miniatures dwarf Kickstarter - I painted him a while ago but only just got around to getting the photos off the memory card. The red hair took a few attempts, doing my best to follow Marsya's tutorial. My first attempt at tartan as well, and I think it was successful! And I've got lots more of his dwarven buddies on which to improve!
  21. Howdy, My Inspiration came from the "Paint Your Giant" Contest... Kev!
  22. I've only worked with resin a couple of times, and it's always a struggle to find a primer that will stick to it. I hope this guy holds up! Base is from secret weapon miniatures.
  23. Howdy, I got me three mugs, and pony of stout, and I'm gonna get ripped, so... Kev!
  24. I bought this fig a long time ago, with a ton of ideas and options for what to do with him. Although I'm definitely on Team Cap, I decided to go with an Iron Man look. I was really happy with how he turned out, especially the sword and faceplate. I'm considering going back and adding a little bit more gold in a few spots, especially in the back area, but for now I'm satisfied. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  25. This is the Dwarven Brewmeister set painted by @Clearman for the Summer Exchange. I love them so much and am going to make special NPCs for them in my D&D game. Such clean paint jobs and my favorite colors are there (purple and green!)
