  1. Pewter miniature manufactured by Reaper Miniatures (Dark Heaven #02644, Demon Thornwort, sculpted by Bob Olley), modified and painted by myself for a game scenario. This was originally a winged pig-demon figure (for when pigs fly?) holding a big sword in the right hand. I left off the wings (separate pieces) and snipped off some spikes on the back, then used some Apoxie Sculpt epoxy putty to fill in the gaps, give him a "razorback" mane to obscure what was left of the spikes, and to give him some pants and a bandanna. I had a couple of plastic "Ogre Kingdoms" (Games Workshop / Warhammer Fantasy) flintlock "bitz" that I got from a local game bazaar, and used them to replace the right sword with a flintlock, and the left hand with a new hand (and flintlock). I would have preferred to give the pig a couple of pepperbox pistols, but I have nothing like that on hand, and this was a much faster conversion than building them from scratch. (Time is a factor here, as I have a game coming up in a week.) I replaced the base; the "wood plank" base and barrel are resin-cast pieces from War Cast Studios (http://www.warcaststudios.com). The character is meant to represent a pre-generated hero, "Mister Pig N. Pepper," the ship's cook on a Wonderland ship crew from my "Avarice in Plunderland" scenario for Necronomicon 2012 (http://www.stonehill.org/necro.htm). This is a one-shot scenario that is something of a mash-up between the pirate genre of Savage Worlds RPG with the "Wonderland No More" setting (http://www.tripleace...rlandNoMore.php). I'll be running this on Sunday, October 28th, at Necronomicon (a gaming/fantasy/sci-fi/horror convention) in St. Petersburg, Florida. In game terms, Mr. Pig N. Pepper is a Gourmancer -- or a maker of magical foods, all of them with pepper as a major trapping/ingredient. The name is inspired by one of the chapter names of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" -- "Pig and Pepper." The backdrop scenery consists of a modified Mega Bloks "Captain Cutlass's Stormstalker" toy ship, with new decks made from mat board and craft sticks.
  2. Later this month, on Sunday, October 28th, I will be running a Wonderland/Pirates mash-up of Savage Worlds RPG at Necronomicon 2012 -- a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/gaming convention in St. Petersburg, Florida. (http://www.stonehill.org/necro.htm) I call it "Avarice in Plunderland." :D Why? Because it seemed like a good pun at the time. (It was late, and I was right up at the deadline for submitting my game schedule.) I've been working on a mix of figures for the pre-generated heroes, combining "Wonderland" themes with a "pirate" spin. Our heroes take to the high seas, as they've been dealt a bad hand by the murderous Queen of Hearts. First up, I figured that I'd start with one of the more nautically-themed characters from Wonderland as (loose!) inspiration for my Mock Turtle Pirate. My best bet was to start with a minotaur, and give it a turtle shell ... plus a few other things. Reaper 14007: Minotaur, Mercenaries Monster (Ben Siens) - converted The figure has been re-based on a War Cast Studios (http://www.warcaststudios.com) "plank" base (meant to suggest the look of a ship's deck). I replaced the minotaur's original arms with a couple of ogre arms I got as part of a "bitz" grab bag deal, from a Warhammer Fantasy "Ogre Kingdoms" sprue. (The cannon came attached to the arms, and I thought it would be amusing to have a minotaur mock turtle carrying one.) I used Apoxie Sculpt two-part epoxy putty to add the tricorn hat, eye patch, pants (very important!) and turtle shell. The background scenery consists of a converted Mega Bloks "Captain Cutlass's Stormstalker" play set, with a new deck and cabin features made from mat board and craft wooden "popsicle" sticks.
  3. So I was planning on trying to do a rotpatch model, but after looking at it on the site I am not so sure how well it would look on the table. Got to thinking though that if I was able to modify it a bit so that his pose does not look so "derpy" I could live with the model. I have green stuff on the way and the wires at the ready. I was planning on taking the limbs off to re-do the different parts for a much more dynamic pose. Like instead of his current "gotta pee" pose make it look more like he is stalking towards the adventurers or something. if anybody has done this model before I was wondering what other tools I would need to complete the model? Also what size of a base would he fit on? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  4. So, I'm trying to take this swashbuckly guy and replace his head. http://www.coolminio...ay-blade-1.html I'm willing to behead any mini I can find, but I REALLY want to finish my wife's Elf bard/Swashbuckler. I don't need it to even be Elven. A slender human would be ok too. Ideally, It would have medium to long hair pulled back, but short hair would do. The one major requirement? He needs to be smirking. Can anyone suggest a smirking face?
  5. Conversion of 65105: Talanka, Female Ogre Shaman into a hill giantess. The club is from the staff that was originally in her left hand. The drinking horn started as one of the tusks strapped to her back.
  6. I converted two Reaper Miniatures (Achiah, Male Angel, and T`Quan, Skoli Warrior), both by the very talented Sandra Garrity: Here's how the model looks so far, after 5 hours of painting (click to view larger): (I'll post updates here as I go, but you can find more detail in my Blog). Thanks for looking!
  7. I replaced their daggers by axes taken from the 02455 weapons pack IV They were sculpted by Jason Wiebe and the weapons are by Werner Klocke. You can see examples of the original sculptures with the daggers HERE and HERE.
  8. Here is a converted Warhammer Ogre Kingdoms Slavelord that I completed a year ago. I started up with a GW Ogre Bull and added some bits, green stuff and chains. The huge cleaver, the leather mask and the skull artefact are some of the features I crafted. I wanted the base to look like the orange sand from an Australian desert. The Slavelord has always been an inspiring character to me. Known to the Chaos Dwarves as Ghrask Dragh, literally ‘corpse-slaver’. The Slavelord are infamous to enslave their prey in death as well as life with a Soul-Binder chains. Much more then a Butcher, it represents the most fearsome Ogre.
  9. 02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke riding a 02739, Dire Bat sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I changed the blades of his two swords for new ones from the 02455, Weapons Pack IV, by Werner Klocke.
