  1. This is a conversion of Halloween Knight, made to represent a former PC. & get points for a holiday figure in the RCL the head is from a zombie, which had great eyes, with a little gapfill on the head. "Gramps" was a 4e D&D warlord. I played him from 2009 -2013 in any Adventure league game that he fit into. he made it all the way to lvl 12, the highest lvl I have ever played in any Adventure league or Society. his favorite sayings "Im too old for this broccoli . "a barbarian hits things with his axe, a warlord hits things with his barbarian." "I am going to retire after this one last mission.." He could go entire missions without ever hitting anyone, giving away all his attacks to the most damage focused characters. His sword was called "A little to the left" and the sword could give away its attack bonus to an ally 1/encounter - after the roll. He was at least 70 and human and claimed to have fought in every conflict in the last 200 years (probably lies) so apparently he made his way into the American Revolutionary war, after 4e was replaced.
  2. Hey everyone, remember this five-headed dragon I converted in 2014/2015 ? Well, I finally made a base to put it on display in my bookshelf. All the 17 parts I used are from Reaper. The original hydra I converted was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. Enjoy!
  3. Hey everyone! Here's 50319, Olav Gunderson the Dwarf Gambler converted as Addren Pocketdeep to be integrated into my diorama. I removed the gun he held in his right hand to replace it with a purse. This Chronoscope model was sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
  4. Hello everyone, I just finished gluing the cavalier onto its mount. The horse was sculpted by Sandra Garrity and the cavalier, a Bones black version, was sculpted by Jim Johnson. Also I replaced the polearm for a spear from Weapons Pack IV, which was sculpted by Werner Klocke. All these parts are made by Reaper Miniatures. I had planned to use a black backdrop, but after some experimentation, I found that a white background worked much better. The white color of the horse was too saturated on a black backdrop, and the different shades of gray from the horse's coat didn't come out well in the pictures. I'm happy to say that this model will be one of the main pieces in the diorama I'm currently working on. Have a great day!
  5. Nothing special here, just a random spacer for use in StarGrave, 5 Parsecs From Home, or any other games I get into. This was just a quick conversion using the top half of a broken Bones alien and some random GW bits ( legs from the old Dark Eldar, and a grenade from somewhere ). Since he's just going to be 'random blaster fodder #3', I just gave him a quick and dirty paint job.
  6. I think he's my favorite of this whole set. He could pass for a heroic fighter in a pinch, but this guy seems to scream "shady thug/mercenary" through and through. As you can see in the side-by-side pic with an unpainted example, the detail on the cape was originally...lacking (it looked like he had a boogie board strapped to his back). I can work with LOW detail, but this cape had NO detail. So, I ended up making a custom cape and was much happier with how it looked. And that's it for the original set of Wildspire townsfolk. Thanks for endulging me during this trip down memory lane. They did do a later version of this set that added about 11 more figures ( kind of a "set 1.5," I guess). I've got that one, so I'll be painting the newer guys at some point.
  7. Hello everyone, I completed a portal I wanted to do for a while. If I remember correctly, I received this model as a free item in one of my online orders. This is a 77640, Graveyard Entryway sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I added a transparent membrane and successive layers of Mod Podge tinted with MSP HD 29802, Brilliant red paint to create a bloody portal. Here, I illuminated the portal with a red LED to create this glowing effect. This image illustrates the gateway before I added the portal. And here, you can see work in progress of the ripples taking form as I apply successive layers of Mod Podge. In total, I applied eight coats on each side of the membrane.
  8. "Born with an innate love of music, (stringed instruments, in particular), Gunnar spent his formative years aspiring to be the greatest bard the realm had ever seen. Sadly, his Dwarven heritage left him with thick, stubby fingers that were more suitable for crafting and battle than they were for making music. For years, Gunnar was told to forget his dream of plucking strings and focus instead on the joy of metalwork or the fury of combat. But few things are more tenacious than a determined dwarf with a dream. Always one to keep his ears open, Gunnar soon heard rumors of a mystical instrument that could be expertly wielded by anyone brave and lucky enough to find it. After years of searching and struggling, Gunnar was finally rewarded with the object of his quest high above a misty mountain. Now, he churns out an endless stream of heavy metal to amp up his companions in battle and terrify their enemies!" I got this set of bulk minis from Path Miniatures on Amazon (it's a great set, btw). It contained four identical dwarf clerics with warhammers. It's a great sculpt, but certainly not the kind of thing I needed four of. One had a hammer that was too warped to reshape, so I carefully cut it away with the plan to add some other dwarf-like weapon at some point. THEN, I got this Starlink figure at Dollar Tree (named "Razor Lemay"). She had an electric guitar strapped to her back, which inspired me. I cut it off, was pleased to find that it fit nicely in the dwarf's hands, and Gunnar Thunderaxe was born! I also added some spikes to his armor to make him more metal. Enjoy!
  9. So I have a ranger beast master character who has a goat companion. I hated the fact that Hildir and her goat come on one base. So I separated them. Next will be some combination of the 2 bones figures. Ideally I will take the grandmother's upper body and attach it to the legs of rioter, but her waist is much narrower. If that looks weird, I'll just do a head transplant! Then arms hollowed out for a toothpick staff.
  10. Good day everyone, here's the last goblin from my warband. I did only a simple conversion on this one. I swapped its head with that of another goblin. The original 77445, Goblin skirmisher model was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. Loose!
  11. Hey everyone, here's my penultimate mischievous fellow. I swapped its head and weapon with those of other goblins. The original 77444, Goblin warrior models were was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
  12. Hey everyone, here's my second 77445, Goblin casualty marker. This original model was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
  13. Hey everyone, here's another converted Goblin warrior. This one went under the hobby knife and will be used as a casualty marker. The original 77444, model was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
  14. Happy holiday everyone, I hope you will all find some time to take a break today. Here's a converted Goblin skirmisher I completed last night. It's made out of 77445, Goblin skirmishers sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped its weapon and shield with those of the other goblin. It was a lot of fun to work on. Have a great day!
  15. Hello everyone, here's another converted Goblin. This on is made out of 77444, Goblin warrior sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped its weapon with that of another Goblin.
  16. Some may have seen it in the Facebook Group already, but I am working currently on a spelunking diorama that is a study in OSL. My first serious attempt at OSL it turned out to be a daunting and mindbending affair. I established the base colours and lighting via airbrush and then went back in with brush. Still a few things to fix, but it is getting there.
  17. So, just what happens when you take the desire to paint some sort of armoured vehicle or tank, and a rather fondness for gnolls? Well, you say screw it, let's see what would happen if gnolls STOLE A TANK! (and a LAV). This definitely isn't going to be NATO greens, or even remotely close to JGSDF colours. Green may be involved at some point, but not any actual real world colouration patterns... Naturally, ignore the obvious answer of "why not?!?!" what kinds of things give a fox inspiration for this project? Ghost In The Shell (the original video/movie) Akira also arguably has some inspiration for this too (both the manga, as well as OAV/OVA) Shenanigans and mischief Various musicians, but Daniel Graves especially (Aesthetic Perfection). A LOT. Borderlands, specifically Borderlands 2 Or, in short, I'm going into this with a few ideas, but not necessarily any particular plan... ^First up, is the initial haul. There's more in the mail (Toghra, as well as Reaver of Kargir), and they should hopefully be here in a few days. So up for contemplating I have two 1:48 scale kits from Tamiya, the JGSDF Light Armored Vehicle (aka LAV) as well as the Type 10 Tank, also from the Japanese Ground Self Defense Force. Miniature options include two different sets of Wizkids gnolls as well as the Pathfinder Deep Cuts, and for Reaper options we have a Krokuta, Bones Blacktongue, Bones Bloodmane 77236, as well as Bones Gnoll Warrior 77012 (to me he looks likes the Bones version of Boneflayer 14580). So yeah, seems like an easy-ish task right, take something that's 28mm scale and pair it with a 1/48 scale model. what could possibly go wrong? ^Okay, didn't quite realize the words "challenge accepted" would actually mean I'd have a decent sized challenge on my hands. Looks like my initial ideas are moderately out the window, or, uh.... Stuck in said window. Original idea was for dual knives/stabby blades gnoll to be the LAV's driver, with Blacktongue poking out of the gunner's hatch... And for the tank, Toghra to be poking out of the commander's hatch directing things.... And then Krokuta and others hanging out in the back or off of the back of either vehicle... I... Uhh... Might be rethinking a few things. Alternate caption for tank: Here's JOHNNY! Seriously, I've never watched the shining, but that's definitely the first thing I saw with Toghra's expression at that picture's angle... ...I probably should have thought about the fact that these vehicles are designed for a nation who's average height is 5'2" (yay Google!) and also according to Google (and the Forgotten Realms Wikia) gnolls are 7' - 7'6". Hmmm. Okay, so it's going to be cozy. Let's start with the LAV, as for some reason that one keeps really snagging my attention, as well as ideas and inspiration... ^Wait a moment, the Pathfinder Deep Cuts ones are noticeably shorter... Well now. He'll fit, more or less, and with some work I could probably get dual stabby guy poking out of the roof.... ^Two-ish hours of arduous assembly later (it's my first time doing up a model kit AND my first time using plastic glue, and there's six bajillion parts for some reason), and we're looking at this. Dashboard isn't attached, and the bases have been trimmed off of the two gnolls in question in order to better fit them. This is my basic premise... And where I left off last night. ^So first off, a basic test fit of the larger, stabbier gnoll. He barely fits... Good. Things will get tighter once the hatches go in, but I'll worry about that when that particular time comes... ^A while with some tools, and we're now here. Ignore the crooked dashboard, that happens when it's just sitting in place... ^Currently how things are looking in order for me to mostly fit the driver in. As eagle eyes might notice, I'm going to have to redo the legs, or more appropriately, the LOOK of legs. Since they tuck down into an area where they won't be seen, I went for the cruder approach. Sure, it isn't as pretty, but I did specifically purchase these minis with the impression that there might be some cutting involved... Odds are though he won't be keeping the axe (that formerly was a polearm or halberd?). So that's where things are at the moment... I've also been thinking about how to explain the smaller sized gnoll, and how he's part of the raiding party, since they're known for being more of a cruel society, especially to outsiders. Well, in short? I've come up with the basic premise that the smaller ones not only survive through perseverance, but also since they're smaller, they're able to get into tighter nooks and crannies, and therefore picked up skills that would make them not only useful to raiding parties, but also considered an essential, even valued partner. That's right, they taught themselves... to HOTWIRE VEHICLES. Sure, there are many ways of building vehicles, but it's nowhere near as much fun as just outright stealing them from someone else, and then using such for their raids, and cause a great deal of mischief and mayhem, potentially being able to raid even more through the initial confusion...
  18. I did this conversion for a contest. I think he fills the role fairly well. I removed his sword and the pistol in his belt (it was a bit miscast and had no detail.)
  19. Overview I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back. The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting. The original figure; this is the backup. The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green. You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later. There are no visible gaps on the outside. The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield. The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.
  20. Hello everyone, here are some pictures of a 02126, Arachno-Assassin sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I had this damaged mini for a long time and I decided to replace its upper left hand falchion for a sword from the 02455, Weapons pack IV. It was a very fun and easy model to paint. I intend to use it as a "boss" in a major encounter, so I painted it in red to increase the focus on it and point out how dangerous it is. The bluish bladed sword will be magical, maybe even cursed.
  21. The term was introduced into evolutionary biology by L. A. Borradaile, who described it as "one of the many attempts of Nature to evolve a crab". 1916. It is believed to have independently occurred 5 times. or a wizard did it. this was a 45min conversion at reapercon hobby hijinx tables. Made from an angel, drider and flail snail, painted as hermit crab. if I did another, it would be easier to paint the drider as a sea-elf instead of adding a new mini. Not sure why I would want a second, but it was fun to make!
  22. Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.
  23. Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint. 77455, Ogre Smasher and 77454, Ogre Clubber
  24. Hello everyone, here is my converted Reaper Miniatures 01411, Harapan sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Back in 2005, this limited-edition model was produced to raising money after the Tsunami disasters in SE Asia. The funds collected were distributed to the Red Cross and Unicef. Nowadays, this mini is very hard to find and the molds were supposedly destroyed after production. I was lucky enough to find one and spent all my free time during the last two weeks converting, painting it and creating a base for it. I converted its weapon by replacing the blades with a cleaver and a tiger paw flail. You can see the original model on the last picture. The tiger paw is front paw of a 02817, Moor Hound. The tropical planted are plastic aquarium plants. I painted the blade as a damascus forged steel and added a blue/green sky and earth non-metallic metal SENMM effect on the metallic parts. I also added ceremonial painting on Harapan’s forehead. I have used Reaper MSP paint exclusively.
  25. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a special NPC I painted last night. Originally an Aquatic Elf, I converted her to make her a Drow abjurator accompanied by her black fox. I slightly converted 03631, Quoralei from the original model sculpted by Derek Schubert for the Dark Heaven Legends line. I replaced the sea shell she was holding by a spellbook and added a wand in her left hand. The 60048, Fox familiar was sculpted by Julie Guthrie, it's originally the familiar of Feiya the Iconic Witch from the Pathfinder line.
