  1. 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.
  2. Here is a quickpaint of the boy and girl from Bones V townsfolk - I see a lot of flaws, and in another dimension with more time I would redo their hair in particular! But they are cabin boys on the Heartbreaker (aka Sophie's Revenge) for now,....
  3. Hello friends!! I'm wanting to do a little market research and I'm hoping I can get your help. For Bones V I sculpted a bunch of kids heroes and their pet companions. These were some of my favorite figures to work on and I'd like to do more. To be very very clear I have NO indication that Reaper will be producing any more of those types of figures and I'm in no way promising to create anything we discuss here. I have no shortage of ideas when it comes to new kid heroes but I'm wanting to see what types of figures people would want if hypothetically I decided to create more. I really like the idea of doing brother/sister sets, offering male and female options for particular races or themes. Simply from a design perspective it allows me to explore an idea more fully. Again, this is purely for my personal side projects and fun, not related to any official releases. That said, it's nice to know what the thoughts were about the ones I've already made and what holes people may want filled within that genre. My questions are: •What did you like/love/hate/ignore about the kid heroes from Bones V? •What themes or types of kid heroes would you be interested in? •What purpose would they serve for you? Just fun to paint? Have kids who want to play but struggle to find a figure that represents them? Using them as stand ins for hobbits/halflings/gnomes or other vertically challenged races? •What themes would you like to see explore in this context? Steampunk, modern, arthurian, more "random fun" types, traditional villager or starting hero types? Dragonkin, Genasi or other less popular fantasy races?
  4. Howdy, Here is the little girl to go with the bucket boy... Kev!
  5. I have some clear plastic Christmas ornaments that I am going to make little scenes and put the Mystic Warrior children from Hasslefree in for my grandkids for Christmas. So I went from painting big ol' Marthrangul to little bitty kids. (I had a dwarf mage painted in between.) So today was my paint day with a friend. I snipped them off their bars and used my friend's jeweler's drill to drill tiny little holes in their feet for pins. Their feet and legs are so tiny, my usual pinning equipment was too large. I cleaned up all their flash and mold lines, washed them, and then primed. I did their skin and faces. My grandbabies have darker complexions and I want their little Jedis to resemble them so I went with a darker skintone. I used critique from my last mini (dwarf mage) to put more contrast in the skin. I did a base, shade, and highlight and then did half steps in between for smoother blend transitions. These are the tiniest eyes I have ever painted. They are not perfect but they aren't bad and I am leaving them alone because I was happy to not blob paint all over their faces! I plan on doing the "Leia" figure in white robes. Not sure how I plan on doing the shading yet - blue, cream, grey, a little mix of surrounding environment colors. We'll see. She will have a blue "lightsaber". The other two are for the twins so I plan on brown padawan robes for them. He will have a purple "lightsaber" and hers will be green. Their hair was basecoated in P3 Umbral Umber and shaded with a mix of Umbral Umber and Reaper's Nightshade Purple. I have not begun to highlight the hair yet. I need to try out a few browns and find one that does not too closely match their skin color. Here's some photos I took tonight. C&C welcome.
  6. Hasslefree Children - isn't that a contradiction in terms? Smurf me sideways, these are tiny!
  7. With only a week to go I finished the miniature I plan to give dear mum. She is a bit more of an artist than myself so I made a painter out of one of the townsfolk children. And she loves to garden so I put some flowers on the base and freehanded one on the front of the jumper. Can anyone guess what the bag is supposed to be?
  8. Once a year my husband and I run a Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits. It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc. We get a great turnout. The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations. All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors. It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting. A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away. I couldn't do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. Anyway, here are a few of the less blurry photos from yesterday. I've tried to optimize them for loading, so I hope the page isn't too slow.
  9. I decided to let both my sons paint a few of my Bones figures over the weekend. The weather was dire so I expected a few hours of interest. The youngest (4.5) lasted about and hour where as the oldest (6) kept going for five hours until I had run out of primed models. I was really impressed with how they did although I did buy cheap brushes as the concept of maintaining a tip didn't stay for very long. Drybrushing and a few washes were used and I have since varnished the models. Here was the first set of models. Here was my youngest sons model. And here was my oldest interpretation of The Hulk I can't recommend it more and I am sure I won't be the last to post their kids attempts.
  10. Here's some more of my old Citadel pre-slotta goblins which I have been painting this week. These are some goblin children (FTG12). Ahhhhh, aren't they cute, although the boy does look a little grumpy! The girl is carrying a little rag doll which I painted up to match her - kind of like a "(goblin) mini me". I've kept the bases as they are for the "old school" look on my display shelf. Thanks for looking!
  11. The thing about kids is that even if a task calls for a few specific items? ALL related items must be dumped onto the floor and scattered hither, thither, and yon. If one must drive a screw, forget just getting a screwdriver -- the ENTIRE TOOLBOX must be upended and all tools examined and touched and then left out, that the invisible pickup elves will have something to do after dark. The thing about kids is that being WAITED upon is not the same as having someone wait on YOU. Waiting thirty seconds between the lunch bell and being able to flee the room like rabid vikings is a bitter, unfair eternity, whereas fifteen minutes to do six single digit multiplication problems is entirely reasonable. The thing about kids is...
  12. So I received my Bones II pledge Monday last week, and as I was sorting through them my 2-year-old daughter saw them, and said 'I want to play with the dragons' - probably something to do with my letting her play with the dragons I picked up in Bones I as she's decided that all plastic figures in bonesium are dragons. Based on her interest, I decided to dump all the Bones figures I have into a 10 litre tub and give them to her to play with in her playpen (pulling out those that I have a specific use for). This has lead to her learning a few new words, like elemental, giant, ogre and chimera...but the most interesting things have been what she has decided that some things are. The cutest of which is what she's decided that the eyebeast (77043) is According to her, these are now to be known as "rabbits" As I know there are a few parents here I thought I'd share this and see if anyone else has interesting stories about what their children have said when young...
  13. This work is going to be a diorama in support of human rights in China. In particular, it will protest their horrendous one-child policy. The scene will feature a mother, defending her three children from Chinese police. At this point, I'm still at the planning stage. I would love any advice or ideas you all might have to share! Mother will be 50260: Xiufang, Femme Fatale Children will be the girl, baby, and the boy on the far right from 03233: Townsfolk: Children. Chinese policeman #1 will be 50036: Saburo Aritomo, Meiji Japanese Officer, with the mustache removed, and the sword hand converted to an empty hand. Chinese policeman #2 will be a compilation of two different figures, and a head from a boneyard sprue set: Body = 50006: Col. Edward Titchener, British Officer Arms = 50106: British Bobby Head = P50008B: Heads (middle one) + +
