  1. In a world where an entire player race seems to have been mostly overlooked throughout the years, Stonehaven Miniatures created a Kickstarter that was oriented mostly for the fine folk, and made a bunch of different gnome characters, male and female, cast in metal. Here are two of them that I've recently finished, a Gnome Paladin and a Gnome Scout: These are some really small miniatures, and as I finally was able to photograph them I could see a few spots that I could probably improve upon them, but being that these are just for fun and enjoyable, I think I'm happy where I am with them. The hair on them is a little bit outside of the natural realm of color, not your typical blonde, black, brown or red. I sent an email to the sculptor Mike Evans and asked him how he imagined his gnomes, with natural color hair or more fantasy colors and he said bright colors, so I kind of followed that idea with these two. I still live in that past of the old D & D description which talked about them having skin the color or wood and either blonde or white hair, but I'm trying to move away from that pretty old concept. I've seen art for gnomes in other newer D&D books and they are certainly more vibrant than before Anyhoos, hope you enjoy them!
  2. Painted as a deep gnome in the Underdark. .
  3. Another fun project from Midlam, this time Gnome and Halfling Children. Unlike most of their previous projects, they're having multiple stretch goals. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/gnome-and-halfling-children/description Story Most Halfling children (or Quarterlings) lead a happy carefree existence in the sleepy backwaters of the halfling lands, in preparation for their happy care free adulthood that they will spend in those same lands. Gnome Children (or Gnomelings) generally play around their Gnome hill homes, told not to go too far, but equally, not to hang around inside the hill getting in everyone's way. Quarterlings and Gnomelings Welcome to our latest project, where we bring you the much anticipated junior Gnomes and Halflings! These compliment Midlam Miniatures' large and growing range of Adult Gnomes and Halflings. Here you can back one, the other, or both sets! Stretch Goal Levels #1 - #3 Unlocked! Stretch Goals Unlike most of our Kickstarters which offer 1 or perhaps 2 miniatures, we are going to add a Halfling and Gnome Child miniature for ever £1000 we reach, until the classes are empty and we have run out of miniatures. Some stretch goal miniatures might be bigger than others and may count as two stretch goals (over £2000) due to their size and weight.
  4. My first, and hopefully not only, mini completed in 2022! Gabby, here, is a perfect sculpt for one of my favorite NPCs. I absolutely love Christine’s absurdly characterful, nicely detailed sculpts. Hyacinth “Cindy” Dabblethwaite is the middle child of the halfling family behind Dabblethwaite’s Fine Teas, and the champion of the underground bare knuckle fight ring her otherwise very proper family runs in the cellars of their tea house.
  5. I hope this one gets re-implemented in Bones USA. Very cool, fun and funny model. The quality of the model wasn't so great, unfortunately. On the bright side though: I knew she needed a pink hair! And a pink hair was really asking for bright green armor and purple vest! 🙂 (All sorts of comments are always welcome!)
  6. Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/gnomes-a-class-of-their-own Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns: I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes): Royal Court of the Common (Garden) Gnomes (2019):
  7. This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390). He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.
  8. Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.
  9. Good day everyone, I completed my Perils of the Underworld diorama. I changed the name simple because there is a trademark on the word Underdark. Here are the pictures, do not hesitate to leave any critiques as I would like to improve anything that does not look right. The building WIP can be found here and the painting WIP here. To realize this diorama, I used Reaper Miniatures model and MSP paint only. The whole idea of this project started with the gemstone the gnome is holding in her left hand. I converted 03082 Ingrid the female gnome sculpted by Derek Schubert as a svirfneblin prospector. (Svirfneblin is the name given to deep gnome in the Forgotten Realms lore). She is exploring the Underworld in search of precious minerals. She's riding her faithful familiar the 14453 hunting cat sculpted by Sandra Garrity. They are taken as prey by an ambushed 03602 stone lurker sculpted by Kevin Williams. There is also a 02018 bat from the familiar pack 1 hanging from its perch and several mushrooms I sculpted in green stuff to complete the scene. The mushroom I sculpted are all found in the Forgotten Realms lore, the blue ones are called nightlight fungus, the round ones on the ground at the back of the display are called timmask, the pink ones are glowcap mushroom and the ones growing on the roots are ripplebark. It took me about 90 hours of work to do this diorama, not including the time I spent preparing the WIP. Enjoy!
  10. 2nd mini painted this weekend for Paint Club. I admit this one posed some interesting challenges that I'm not super thrilled about. Most of that is related to the lack of details to really draw out, but it also highlights my lack of ability to know how to help highlight that muddled scuplt. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Majority of Blink being armor made the choice for colors fairly easy. I once again used the combo of the Gunmetal and Aluminum as the pairing. I like it! * The purple and red seem to be an okay choice for the only real two tones in this model, but I'd like a bit more color. Still a win. * I really went back around 4 times to fix the skin. I found that there were some mold lines I didn't quite scrape off that frustrated me, but even so the colors seem okay. Reaper send me a SAMPLE color that's like THE COLOR of flesh that works in a pinkish hue that I love. LOVE. * The checkering I added to the helm seems to be a fun detail and helps bring out some of the helmet forward. * I used black ink to do black-lining which helped show separation between all of the plates. Win! * Eyes came out great. I wanted to go back and add that little sparkle in the corner of the eye, but I think we all know that one-step-too-far we all can take when it's good enough and then it gets screwed up. Holding back was the way to go. * Trying a lot harder to work the hair with highlights. Did a brown base, lined with brown liner between the strands, then highlighted with brown sand. Works? I think so. Misses: * The dark lining I end up with around the eyes needs to be drawn back further. I can't seem to get around that. It was really present around my Lysette work and shows up strong in this one, too. Wah wah. * I tried using brown liner to bring out the detail in the plates. Wasn't strong enough and too runny in its medium, so I had to swap to black ink. * Not sure I'm a fan of the shield mix of tones with Gunmetal and Aluminium. I think I need input there from y'all. * The horsehair helmet with purple and red...may have been a bit much. Color recommendations? * I liked using a pinkish color for that vial hanging on her belt, but is it too bright? Overall, this little model was not the easiest due to the carve of the model. I do think that this was a great test to see how I could add to it, but still so much to learn on improving things like this with more free hand. Any thoughts?
  11. I felt like a slightly less involved project after Vlad, so I decided to paint Elliwyn Heatherlark. I swapped her weapon with a gladius from the Agema Romans and also decided to give her a more interesting item than the small shield she originally carried. As it happened it got again more involved, as I sculpted a Nure-onna, basically a snake with a human head, that she defeated in battle. Worked out well with the pose and provided me with the opportunity to experiment with gore effects. C&c very welcome. You also find the WIP thread here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89770-elliwyn-heatherlark-gnome-bard-77164/
  12. I am diving into some more of the white-undercoated Bones 1 models that are cluttering up my Drawers of Doom, models that for some reason or other have been stuck in limbo never to get to painted-heaven. This was painted mainly with the so-called "one and done" method; a single coat of Citadel Contrast paints on a white undercoat, apart from a few details in regular paint, such as the sword and belt buckle done in metals and the whites of the eyeballs. Some black used for blacklining around some of the edges and Vallejo Sand Yellow for the hair. The rim of the base needs a second coat of black. 77164 Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard. Sculpted by Derek Schubert. 25mm base. It was part of the "Half Sized Heroes" subset of the Bones 1 Core set.
  13. This was supposed to be a quick tabletop paint job but ended up taking longer as I tried different techniques. It was a fun but tricky one to paint with the limited palette I choose but I like challenging myself and I am very pleased with the final result.
  14. Anyone who has got the male one of these able to tell me how easy it would be to remove his head for use on another mini?
  15. Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year. First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version. The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top. Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal. The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view... Metals are shaded metallics. And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.
  16. Blink Berenwicket, Female Gnome by Bobby Jackson is also available in metal sku# 03732. The armor is painted with some ancient GW green metallic. I experimented with blue metallic on the sword but I'm not overly thrilled with the result but it is good enough to call done :)
  17. Painted for one of my Player characters. Almost a speed paint. Original goal was to get done quickly, but started to take a little more time with her than I planned.
  18. So I finished up this teeny tiny figure for my ex last night, and thought I would show her off... Thanks for looking! G WIP here
  19. So the ex is going to be joining a new campaign, and she asked me to paint her figure, the Stonehaven female gnome rogue.... Still just starting, but need to motivate myself, as well as keeping track of colors.... Scalera is Reaper Linen White Pupil Warcolours Green 3 Skin SC 75 Arabic shade... Check back as more gets done!
  20. After the rather involved Vlad project I thought of painting something a tad less complicated. I chose Elliwyn Heatherlark, the Bones version that is. It is a simple conversion with a weapon swap, new sheath and ultimately a cut-off monster head in her hand. I will go heavy on weathering and signs of recent battle to contrast the diminutive appearance of Elliwyn. So far I finished the green overcoat and her face. Army Painter Glistening Blood Effect came in handy. I also tried to add a subtle texture to the overcoat. C&C as always welcome.
  21. So here’s my question, got this little person with my last Reaper order, and I just wonder a little. The miniature is a little bit heavier set or “thicker” than the concept art, and I’m just wondering, does everything think this is a gnome lass and not a young gnome beardless gentleman? She’s kind of similar to the other set that has a very obvious gnomish lady: Just wondering if everybody else has painted this little hooded gnome as a lass?
  22. I am churning out the Bones 4 core set PC-types just to get them out of the way before I can get stuck in with the more interesting monsters and creatures. Apologies in advance for my lack of photographic skill. I thought I had found a good setting, but clearly not for all. #10: Manga-haired gnome? A Fairy wearing boots?
  23. These are the Deep Gnome Heroes. I love these minis! Their sculpts are so full of personality! I think the girl gnome may have the best face I have painted thus far!
  24. I recently started a project to go through the Bones 1 KS models I have in order from a printout of the Rewards pictures. Here is the first project: Cassie, Gnome Wizard. There are some great examples of her out there. I knew I wanted a purple-haired gnome, and just went from there. The most aggravating part of this miniature was the cloak. I wasn't planning on spending so much time on these figures, but I tried a freehand Raindrop pattern, and it took a long time. Link to WIP Enjoy. C&C Welcome. -Darc
  25. I have begun the best thing I can think of for myself to get through my Bones I stockpile. I went to the Kickstarter page, took screenshots of the reward pictures, and am using it as a checklist. I’ll be shooting for tabletop+. First up is Cassie, gnome wizard. Mold lines addressed, cleaned, and on a rudimentary base. Primed with Brown Liner. Flesh tone base is Rosy Shadow. Then working on eyes. Nightshade Purple and Linen White so far. And that’s all I got done today.
