  1. Hello! I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too. I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz? I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.
  2. This ended up being a speed paint, the patterns and fiddly bits just painted up super quick, around 2 hours. I painted her just so I could glue her cloak on. Added two mushrooms I had laying around from previous putty leftovers.
  3. Hello all! I got a lot of advice on the last mini painted and I tried to incorporate it into this one. This one is Ingrid the Gnome from the second Learn to Paint Kit. I really wasn't pleased with how she was turning out, but I think I salvaged it a bit in the end. This is my 4th mini, and it was my first attempt at eyes; it was frustrating and horrible. I tried several techniques, and it took about 4 tries to get them to the state they are in. I stopped fussing with the details, particularly on the base because frankly, I just want to move on. Hopefully it's not a step backwards. Comments and Critiques are greatly desired. Thanks! PS: Once again, I apologize for the poor pictures. I'm going to build a light box soon.
  4. An older one, but I enjoyed the sculpt. This is a continuation of my practice with purples.... Not much I could do, except the hair... I toyed with the idea of making her much darker looking... but in the end, this is more likely to end up with the PC minis, instead of a villain. Thanks for enjoying my art.
  5. Here is my take on 77031 Cassie my Gnome Wizard. Cassie was painted last year but I have just finished the basing. As always comments or feedback welcome.
  6. These are three classic tiny Old School vampires, originally from Grenadier, now from Mirliton. Two of them I had when I was a child. The Mirliton set is called "NM002 Vampires". The Grenadier vampires were found in two sets: all three in "606 Vicious Vampires" and two of them in "2014 Folklore Creatures of the Night". I think I must have had the second set because the third vampire, the one in the "Aha! Argh" pose, is unfamiliar to me and it was not in that set. The female vampire is tiny. She is so small I was a little uncomfortable with the implications. My husband suggested she be a hobbit (or gnome) vampire and hey, problem solved. WIP thread here.
  7. Last off the table, a group of Reaper Miniatures ordered during the 12 Days of Reaper promotion. I tried to stick to minis who will see use not just in Christmas themed adventures. The full group: Jakob Knochengard, who will likely see the table as a Witch Hunter for Mordheim: Nick the Holiday Rogue: The Yule Treant: Hecklemeyer, Undead Jester: Tinker the Gnome (I tried for a Disney Gepetto scheme on him)
  8. I decided to flip through my ReaperCon purchase of the Learn to Paint Kit 2: Layer Up! and was inspired to actually get started... This is the result of a couple of hours of effort. Still working on the shadow stages, but so far I'm a fan of both the instructions, the paints, and my work. I'm not a fan of the brush that came with the kit. According to the instructions, it's supposed to be a size 1, it's a size 0. Not that big a deal... but the fact that it's bristles are splayed out like an abused drybrush? Does not match the quality of the brush I bought at ReaperCon and have been using regularly since.
  9. So here is my second try at Balto Burrowell. The first was last Fall's Exchange, and it was going to be this mini, but it got damaged so..... (Info in WiP) Kind of another case of 'I want you off my desk' working here, as I started him quite a while ago... Here he is, on his elevating Secret Weapon Base... And some Higher Angle: Comments and Critiques welcome! George
  10. So.. While waiting for the water to cure itself on the nymph's base,I found this little guy begging paint. I couldn't resist he's so cute, and he practically painted himself so far. Of course he wanted to be a garden gnome and because he's a garden gnome he needed a tree house. For the tree form I used some paperclip and thinner brass wire and then globbed lots of greenstuff onto it for a solid form.. I made the door separate on my flat hobby mat, scored it and let it cure then attached it. I need to fill out the tree more and fix the door into the tree, widen the trunk and add some more.
  11. I was still learning how to take pics with the new camera, but these came out pretty good. Killed my eyes painting this after another very small Tengu model, but she is was worth it. Originally I was hoping my friend could use it in his Dragon Island campaign, but she did not make it into the story. Really pretty model though, love the pose.
  12. So, Volo's Guide to Monsters has resparked my interest in Redcaps. I've used them a few times before in Feywild encounters in D&D, but always just used Gnomes as proxies. Does anyone have any good suggestions for Redcaps? I'm looking for the sort like they have in 5E and PF: evil twisted small folk, with iron shoes, blood-stained hats, and wicked scythes, sickles, and axes as weapons (though weapons are easy enough to convert)
  13. These are: - Ingrid, Female Gnome: 03082 - Lydia Copperthumb: 03399 (Converted to hold rifle.) - Blackjack, Rogue: 60053 - Sajan, Iconic Monk: 89018 - Harsk, Iconic Dwarf Ranger: 89020 The party has set sail on a secret mission in service of The King. They are one dwarven fighter, one dwarven gunslinger, a gnome druid, a human rogue and a monk. I really hope the other players will like their characters. :) Individual pics:
  14. Another conversion, this time a Gnome Bard from Reaper's "Balto Burrowell". This is to represent one of the player characters in my "Storm King's Thunder" campaign.
  15. Miniature: 89027 Lini, Iconic Gnome Druid One of my cast of characters in Pathfinder was a Gnome Druid bleachling. Tika Mrae Adajiir (d'Saong). Trying to convert the WAR art from the icon to what I was was very challenging and tedious to do (and I never finished it in the Shop of Photos). Upon discovering Reaper, and wanting to begin painting other things besides my bride's zombies (she loves all things zombie, but especially co-op tabletop ones). In my haste and limited budget, I threw the miniature into the basket along with the fighter I am going to be painting up for Haldir's campaign down below in The Playing. I also only got Brown Liner. Well.. the leather parts will be easier? lol I tried mixing the following for the initial skintone, but it was too light: 09093 Golden Highlight (Reaper) 70.918 Ivory (VMC) I then repainted the skin with just the 09093 Golden Highlight. This is after the second coat: I did not take a photo of the sequences of her hair. Currently it appears very bright, but it is going to be worse... and if nothing else, it will be an experiment in what to not do... Her hair will be the following: 70.918 Ivory (VMC) 70.820 OffWhite (VMC) 70.951 White (VMC) - A very few select highlights The current photo is several coats of Ivory only.
  16. 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)
  17. Finally finished something off! Unfortunately, it's just a phone camera photo! I'll post a better pic once I get my camera back from my friend, but I thought this wasn't too bad for a phone attempt. Had a lot of fun trying out a new hair colour. New Photos! Only took me a year and a half...
  18. The Little People January Bones Beauty Pageant inspired me to try to paint some of my halflings and gnomes. This one, 77167: Ingrid, Female Gnome, is now done. I tried to do some OSL to make it look like the stone was really glowing, including between her fingers. I painted the base with lights and shadows. I didn't add anything to her except paint.
  19. So here is Balto Burrowell, in the primer. The reason I am starting here, is that this was one of the minis that I was going to paint for the Fall Exchange. The problem is that when I was stripping the last of the paint from him with my Dremel tool and a wire brush, I ground off his nose with the chuck of the tool! Needless to say I was upset, and had to order a new mini to paint. I kept him around to remind me to be a little smarter and more careful when using power tools on minis, and he has always been giving me the evil eye from my painting desk, sitting there un primed, with Frankenstein's hand me down boots, as I never finished removing the base from under his feet. So I was doing some putty work the other evening, and decided to give him some plastic surgery! I put a tiny dab of green stuff on his face, and tried to shape it so that it looked like the original. I tried an X Acto knife, my clay shapers, dental picks, and finally, a straight pin. How people sculpt these things on these little guys is beyond me! (Yes I did see Cornelius Dapperbear, I am surprised Talespinner can still see!) So here is Balto, let me know what you think of his nose! Painting to commence tonight, after the Liquid green stuff dries... George
  20. Zed, the Gnome Bard Extraordinaire! He has the gift of gab,and a quick wit! If he can't talk his way out of trouble, a quick illusion or two, and POOF! he's gone like the wind! This was my first real attempt at OSL. Overall, I think it came out pretty good. Obviously I have some work to do on getting right. However, when I sent the WIP pick to my buddy I was painting it for, he flipped! He thought it was amazing, so I decided to call it. In the picture, I can see where I may have lightened it a little too much. I am still happy with the way he turned out, being my first real attempt at something like this. I hope you enjoy him as much as I did painting him! I give you, Corim Kestrel as ZED THE EXTRAORDINAIRE!! And as always, CC is welcomed and appreciated! CAH
  21. This commission ended up not being a very tall order. I made short work of it.
  22. Here is my Balto Burrowell, painted up for a character of mine in Pathfinder. He is a gnome Sorcerer named Pipperton Bubblebrook from Absolom. His closest friend is his familiar, Bucky the badger who was inspired by a honey badger. I'm sorry for the blurry picture, I am still working on my camera foo, and a lightbox. If I take a better picture, I will update it. Pipperton Bucky As always, thanks for looking and I hope you like it! C&C welcome. CAH
  23. This was my first attempt at a smaller piece. Hitting the details is no easy task. I am happy with how he turned out, but I still need to hone my brush control. The idea behind this one was inspired by a friends Gnome Paladin who is the Knight in Shining Armor type character. His armor is gold and steel. He rides a war dog, but I haven't found a figure for that yet. Hope you like him. And the back shot CAH
  24. Hey Folks! I drew Leopardpixie as my person to paint for, and she put me so far out of my comfort zone that I have no words to describe... From her 'In Brief' Do you have a particular color scheme in mind? Lets make this interesting - challenge your self and use only blue, black, white and red (ONLY) challenge your color mixing abilities. and this means Only 1 bottle of each color, not multi bottles of various reds / blues etc... Now I am the type that buys their paint in 'Triads" long before Reaper started selling them that way, as I like having the same color to go back to when I have to fix mistakes. Even with a recipe, I still wouldn't be able to make exact matches.... So I paniced for an hour until I got home... So I dug through the pile of lead, and came up with the Crystal Golem. As I looked at it, I thought maybe I could get away with what she wanted with this mini... I also decided to do a diorama, which is where Balto Burrowell, and the Pillar of Evil, came in. The Diorama title in my mind was always "Golem Smash!", as Balto is telling his creation to do something about the item of Evil he has come across... I should have put a plate on the base saying that... Many PMs to Ub3r later here is what I sent: The Diorama The Golem: The Gnome: Also some pics of the packaging: The inner box: the last thing into the box: Better pic--- The bases all have washers in them, and the diorama has Rare Earth Magnets in it to hold minis in place, but allow them to be used in games as well. (Next time I will find bases with vertical sides for this....) So many thanks go out to Ub3r_N3rd for all the advice and patience! Thanks for Looking! 8) George Retro-Active WiP here. Going to get another pair of these guys for myself.... Edited to add more pics and link to WiP
