  1. Back for the January Bones Beauty Contest I painted up a half dozen or so Bones halflings and gnomes (and enough more metal halflings to make a baker's dozen, but they will get shown later). This is Lem, Iconic Bard. I painted his facial expression after a particular mischievous and charming nephew of mine. I played a flute like his in school; the reflections on the flute are all painted on.
  2. During the January Bones Beauty Pageant in addition to a handful of Bones gnomes and halflings, I painted some metal ones as well. This is Woody the Ranger in his red-lined black greatcoat with red toggle buttons. He's also in the Bones II Kickstarter, but this one is metal. I made some attempt to paint one side of his face in shadow but am not sure how successful it was.
  3. So, I wanted to do a group of minis that were more thematic and played on having more character in the minis rather than just the generic fighter, wizard, etc. Therefore, I played on the idea of a rogue as a cat burglar by having the burglar actually meeting the cat. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I thought the hair and the fabric of the clothing was particularly solid. I've definitely got more room to improve, but I was at least fairly satisfied with this one. The extreme close up of the face shows where I could improve the smoothness of the skin and such. Maybe more attenti
  4. This is 02110: Darby Darkleaf, or rather one of a set of three, 03359: DHL Classics: Female Halflings. They are not quite identical, since the individual figure has a larger base than the three in the set. All three halflings in the set are tiny and Old School style, with especially small faces with eyes that are shaped a little difficult to paint. They are, however, very cute. I painted her eyes rather larger than they were actually sculpted. I think this might be the first time in twenty years I've tried to paint a mini red-blonde. I'm not sure how successful she turned out.
  5. Here she is, the last of the hobbits (and gnomes) I started during the January Bones Beauty Pageant. Olivia, "halfling" could maybe be a druid, or a wizard. At any rate, she a non-thief hobbit female. Many times when I start one of these things I think, "Oh, I should try painting in subdued colors and earth tones." Hah. So anyway, here's the world's least camouflaged hobbit druid. Or most ivy-loving wizard. Or something. I love that she has a loaf of bread in her sling of scrolls and books.
  6. This is one of my favorite halfling sculpts. Melantha is smaller than some other recent halflings (like the statuesque Elia Shadowfeet Mark II), but I like her attitude. There's so much life and movement in this sculpt!
  7. Inspired by the January Bones Little People Beauty Pageant, I pulled out some of my metal hobbits and painted them up as well. This is Elia Shadowfeet, Female Halfling Thief. I discovered I also had an earlier incarnation of Elia, much more old-school in style but sculpted, as this one was, by Sandra Garrity. I do like the more modern approach in this figure. She's pretty tall for a halfling, reasonably armored, and packed for a serious expedition. Looking at some of the other paint jobs, like Derek Schubert's stunning version in Reaper's online store, I am struck by how soft min
  8. This is Reaper 02100: Trissa Cloverhill, the last of the three female halflings in the set 03359: DHL Classics: Female Halflings. They are a cute set of three extra-small old-school-style hobbits. Trissa's legs felt a little bare to me, so I added blue breeches.
  9. For my character Nivin Slimheart over in Dilvish the Deliverer's Talos: City of Intrigue and Adventure! RP thread. In the RP, he carries a longsword (two-handed, since he's a halfling) as his main weapon, so here, I've swapped the smaller sword Hellakin normally carries for a GW Mordheim sword.
  10. Another of the Bones halflings-and-gnomes I painted for the January Bones Beauty Pageant. I like his active pose. I think he has the biggest feet of all the halflings I painted. His eyes were dark and a little hard to get to. I was trying for a glint out of the shadows effect for his left eye (on our right). As with all the swords and shiny bits, the reflections are painted on.
  11. This is 02058: Elia Shadowfeet, which came in a set with two others, 03359: DHL Classics Female Halflings. She's a dainty little Old-School thing. To give an idea of size, she is standing on a standard Chessex dice box. There is a later version of Elia who is an amazon by comparison. Both were sculpted by Sandra Garrity. She was sculpted with (probably) bare legs, but I added painted-on breeches because that tunic looked mighty short and drafty. I painted her dark because dark hobbits, why not. Reflections on the short sword are painted on. I think the whites on her sleeves go
  12. Right before I was distracted by Bones II's arrival, I did get quite a lovely set of minis from Dragon Bait. I think they have wonderful potential, and I wish them the best. I never thought I'd see a crowdsourced project arrive at my doorstep less than a month after it ended. To start, a group shot:
  13. Here's Hellakin, one of my entrants for the Little People Beauty Pageant and part of my count for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge. I painted him in a single day so I'm pretty proud of being able to get that done, though he's not a speed paint by any means. Struggled a little to get his hair highlighted correctly, and not sure if I made the right color choices (the mister thinks I should've made him more flashy). I kept messing up the layering on his cloak too, making my layers too watery and having to repeat and glaze it back down. Anyways, I'm glad I've knocked him off my list, comments
  14. Well, I finished a mini for one of my Pathfinder characters after about 5 months of not painting. Maybe I'll try this one again after more practice. Or maybe not since between mini, weapon conversion and base It took 3 Bones minis to do it. Suggestions for improvement are welcome. See also my work in progress thread.
  15. So inspiration finally struck me for this month's bones beauty pageant challenge. I'll be making a core-only glaive-wielding Halfling fighter, and I've picked Cassie as the base model to work with. Given that my last attempt with this model ended with her blindfolded and used to test new sealers, I think I have a lot of room to improve. I first want to convert her spear into something slightly more glaive-ish. After rummaging through my vampire set, I deprive some poor mummy of its khopesh blade. Pinning something this small is a challenge. My pin vice is too high-caliber for t
  16. The bones version of Hellakin painted up for the little people challenge.
  17. Enora told me "Paint me NOW!", so I happily obliged, even thought my pile of partially painted is approaching 20. She is so cute!
  18. Cecilia, the Hefty Halfling is a D&D bard/fighter character I am currently playing. She once got the party into a fight with killer mushrooms when she tried to collect them for a stew. And when the battle was over, she still made her stew. This is a Bones figure, with minimal prep. I didn't use any primer, but I did glue her to a gaming base, and extended the base she came with into more rock and dirt using green stuff. I missed a mold line or two, but otherwise, she's not too bad. The surface was not as smooth as polished and primed metal, but for a tabletop mini, that's ok.
  19. Been on the boards for a while, but I am officially taking the plunge and doing my first Show Off. 3584 - Dar Dimplefoot, Halfling Thief Base made with Magic Sculp and Happy Seppeku basing stamps. Comments appreciated!
  20. Lem! My eyes hurt, I don't think I will be painting another halfling anytime soon. Good thing I think I got one of the nicest sculpts done. Static grass is not my friend right now, might have sprinkled a bit too much.
  21. Hi, in the moment I have the problem that most 28-32mm Halfling minis do not satisfy me. 1. I don't want them to have tall. Most have sizes like Dwarves. Even the new Arcworlde Halfling minis I will get soon. I want only half the size of a human +/- few inches (not +/- whole feets!!!) 2. I do not want them thinny. No thinny Halflings. More like Tolkien made them in his mind. 3. No shoes! Only shoes for one or two special characters... Does anyone know a producer of such Halflings to get together a skirmish group (even a bigger group)?
  22. Well, I finally managed to get some painting done and some pics taken. Only 1 dwarf, 1 halfling, a dragon, and a couple of sci fi models... Still a load more stuff to paint, but it's a start! cheers, Michael
  23. So I start a new adventure next week... literally. It's going to be my first time playing a halfling, a rogue, and Pathfinder all at once. So I though I'd put some effort into a mini... though this may guarantee character death before level 2. Here is what I have so far, and I need HELP. And a shot with a less harsh light because in real life the mini seems to look a little better in the dark... and without my magnifying glasses on... I know there are several problems with this mini at this point. The one I'm wanting to knock out first is that I feel like the paint is chalky, or
  24. Here we go with more Bones for you viewing. While trying to decide on colors thought I go with colors of one of my favorite super's Spiderman. Thanks for viewing and happy painting.
  25. So, one of the characters in my AD&D game is a halfling fighter who has acquired a riding dog. While the character's mini is relatively easy (I'm using Bailey Silverbell, because close enough - armored halflings are hard to find, female ones worse, and specifically banded mail?), I've strangely been having trouble finding a mounted halfling, let alone a dog big enough to be a riding dog. (There's one 25-28mm halfling mounted on a dog that I can find, one of the Wizard's pre-paints). So I'm looking for a decent-sized dog, although preferably not a mastiff (that's not a show-stopper) th
