  1. Here is a conversion I did for a Migo warrior in my Call of Cthulhu game The body was a Reaper Warlord miniature: 14456: Mastema, Darkspawn Demon. The head was from Rebel miniatures, I think the figure was called a terror mite. The wings were something from a long time ago. buckyball
  2. I did a quick conversion for a player in an RPG game I am running. He wanted to play a Dragonborn paladin, and this was the closest mini to what he wanted. Before I painted it, I decided it needed the weapon swaps to match the character load-out and I also added on some plates to give him platemail. Fairly rough sculpting on my part, if you want to convert this guy, I recommend cutting off the arms at the shoulder-pads to give to access to do a good job. Anyhow, used green to highlight the black and spent only a couple hours painting him up. As he isn't sealed, it lo
  3. I snipped this guy's spear and made it into crude poleaxe to lend some variety to the mooks. I wanted it to look crude.
  4. "Hell's Vengeance" is a recent Pathfinder Adventure Path, in which the player characters are evil. This is the first evil-PC Adventure Path that Paizo has produced. One of the friendly non-player characters (NPCs) is a young woman named Cimri Staelish -- a troublemaker in the little town where the adventure begins. She is supposed to adventure alongside the PCs for a while, and let the GM advise the players on how to be evil, if they don't abandon their usual heroic inclinations fast enough. I am running this Adventure Path for some of my friends, so I decided to convert a m
  5. Right then. If all goes according to plan, this will be my first post with pictures of something I've converted / built and painted for this site. It's funny because I'm actually nervous about this posting - wondering whether I've got the guidelines down, hoping the pictures will show up correctly, etc. Showing the model doesn't bother me in the least, actually. For transparency, this model has been posted before on a different website. He was built and painted for a personal challenge that earned me nothing but glory and bragging rights - no money exchanged hands and nothing physi
  6. Blood Bowl is a fantastic game- and for many years it has been unsupported. This has led to a lot of third party "fantasy football" miniatures, as well as a healthy habit of players converting their own teams. This is the second type. Sometime after the Bones 2 Kickstarter, I found that I had a lot more Bugbears than I felt like I needed. But I started thinking that they'd make great ogres, and if they only were a bit more demonic, they could be combined with a group of Imps that I had leftover from Ex Illis. So here are my team's stars- the Bearded Devils. So far, they've performe
  7. Here's 01539, Gil the Chibi Sea Monster aka Chibi Tiik, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I converted this one so he will look like a deep sea monster more than a swamp monster. The idea for the modification came to me after seeing a psychedelic painting of the Creature from the black lagoon. The light effect on the face inspired me to convert Gil into a Tiik "deed sea monster" like creature with the light from his lure lighting up its face. So was born Chibi Tiik. Here's the link to the Converting/Painting WIP. I hope you'll enjoy. As always, comment and
  8. I wasn't originally planning to do a WIP of this guy, but after struggling with super glue and vaseline and half-cured greenstuff, I thought that it might be wise to post about it and learn all the ways I'm going about this wrong. I decided to swap two of the heads because I thought it would look more balanced, and I also decided to add wings because why not? Then, because it totally looked like I'd just hacked stuff apart and sorta glued it back together (because...that's what I did), I decided to break out my increasingly stiff greenstuff. I di
  9. This is a conversion of Hasslefree's Gen. I had pictured a mini sitting on a stone looking into a pond which sent me on a search that ended with Gen. Her pose was perfect for what I wanted and when thinking of exactly what to do, my mind went to the Blue Fairy. Blue for color as well as mood. So the conversion to her was that I removed her horns and knife, added wings, and added the leaves and flowers to her hair. She received a silver medal in the Open category at ReaperCon. The main feedback I received was I need better directional shading on the base, the way I painted her wings make th
  10. I needed a female human archer to complete my new Frostgrave warband, so I thought I'd see if I could make one using the pieces from the North Star plastic Frostgrave soldiers set. While I've heard it said that since the clothing on these figures is so bulky that any of them could be used as women, since the figure's shape wouldn't show through all the clothing layers anyway, I like it when figures that are supposed to be female actually look like a woman. I didn't want to just sculpt breasts on one of the existing figures either, as I'm not a very good sculptor. So I thought about where I
  11. I had never painted a Garrick the Bold (Sir Forscale) before, and since it seems everyone and their brother around here has, I thought it was about time I did too. Coincidently, I needed a knight for a new Frostgrave warband I was working on, so I thought it would be the ideal time to do a Garrick for myself. Since he is going to be fighting in colder climes, I first modified him by adding an old GW cape to the figure. Also, since he is going to be employed by a Sigilist wizard, I did some freehand lettering on his shield.
  12. Not a great picture, due to lighting, but I'm playing around with a Bathalian I converted with a futuristic pistol from weapons pack 55025. I dug it out for what I hope will be a near-term game of Rogue Stars, Osprey's new generic SF squad skirmish game. I'll post him again once he's based, but I suspect my Rogue Stars forces are going to get something unobtrusive in basing style.
  13. Awhile ago one of my Fellow Lead Adventure Forum Guys, ZeroTwentythree, sent me a Anthropomorphic Vulture he had made. The depressing little Creature sat for some time based & primed, but otherwise untouched. Then Zero Himself posted a photo of a similar Guy to whom he had added a Mordheim accessory sprue lantern. THAT was just the thing to shove me into action...so to speak. I added the very same lantern-on-a-stick AND made a bell from a G.W. Skaven (Rat Guy) part, a bit of plastic tube, a bead, & a pin from a flannel shirt I bought. The resulting conversion reminded me of the Mordh
  14. So when this model came out I had to have it, as, I suspect, did every other ork player as well. It just screams WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHcoughcoughOrk. Anyways, been working on it for about a week? I think. Sadly it is now finished and I have to find a new project :( :( Sadness.
  15. Inspired in part by the Great Frogmeister's silly photos of Kaladrax getting into bags of snacks, doing battle against action figures, and tearing up rolls of toilet paper, I thought I'd finally get around to tackling my own Kaladrax from the Bones Kickstarter. Here is a very rough, un-glued assembly of the parts I have. All I've done so far is to cover all the pieces with Americana "Parchment" acrylic (a sort of yellowish-beige-white), then to apply a wash with a big jug of brown paint that has gone "soupy." (This happens to a lot of my acrylic paints: it turns watery, and my attem
  16. Hi all, I am again guilty as charged to neglect painting my miniatures. Instead I go on converting them...that said, I intend to paint her directly after she is finished to break the pattern. This time I decided to give Bones Mini 77175 a total make over. I found the sculpt very busy and the nose was unfortunately miscast. Anyhow, I am always quick with the blade and decapitated her, took away the sword on her back and got the greenstuff out. I intend to add a skeleton coming forth from the soil beneath her outstretched hand, which required me to rebase her. I started
  17. I started this guy last year at Reapercon in the Convert a colossal skeleton class, and entered him into the open category at this year's Reapercon; he earned a bronze. WIP is located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62739-colossal-skeleton-conversion-for-reapercon-2016/
  18. 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.
  19. After some final sealer, Ajaxxus 5.0, Tiefling Barbarian, is ready to hit the dungeons! I'm not sure why he wound up so shiny in these photos, he's not glossy in person. Hanging out with Sir Forscale to show his reduced stature from earlier versions: I have a WiP thread of the conversion process here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71285-lidless-eye-wip-ajaxxus-skiotho-tiefling-barbarian-conversion/?p=1456616 Hopefully I'll get to play in a game rather than run one soon and be able to use him again!
  20. Many moons ago, when the first official preview for D&D 5E were coming out, a friend and I were discussing that the Paladin preview had a Half-Orc as the example art, and it would be interesting to see more atypical race/class combos in the books. He had suggested a Tiefling Barbarian, and lo and behold, not but five minutes later, WotC previewed the Barbarian and it was...a generic Viking style Human. Later that day, during downtime at work, I thought I'd make it up to both of us and sketch out a concept for a Tiefling Barbarian. I kept the 4E & 5E pact-style Tieflings, and took a
  21. This is an index thread for figures painted as Drow or dark elves which did not start out as official Drow figures. I thought people might like links to find figures which work well converted to dark elves, thus this index thread. It's not comprehensive, just some I've found. Feel free to add links if you find other figures which have been painted up as Drow. (I included pictures so it would be easier to see them and see if there are duplicates, but don't feel obliged.)
  22. Need somewhere to keep my dwarf army. Thought to build LED underground small garrison fort/outpost. Will have 4 floors Magnetized bottom floor for large models And will try to stuff as much detail as I can. Began with a wooden simple frame, and 2" PinkFoam. Was debating to build up all details and then paint it at once, or paint it in pieces and install them into the box as I go. Do to the nature of the LED lighting, and much uncertainties with LED lighting, I decided to craft it piece by piece instead of all at once. Also, I do not have a good way to cover very large, har
  23. These were painted in several sessions. I would call this low tabletop quality, taking around 2-2.5 hours each figure. I really wanted some 28mm Fimir to paint and to use for Heroquest and/or D&D (Pathfinder) as a new monster that my players will not have heard of (my group has never played Warhammer... or messed with the model ranges). One group was converted using Games Workshop Ork and Goblin pieces, as well as a Bombshell Miniatures axe. I'm happy with them all and I'm happy to say the converted ones (the standard bearer) was the most frightening conversion I've ever done, it was
  24. Some of you may remember that last December I converted an extra Darkrasp figure, that I had traded for back in 2013, into a Santa Claus themed wizard figure. Well, this week I finally got around to painting the original Darkrasp, Evil Priest, figure that came in the Dark Heroes set from my original Kickstarter pledge; and once again I did a conversion. A bit of train of thought now... As I looked at this figure and pondered how to paint it, I considered how most of the painted examples of this figure that I have seen have been done up in dark colors: black, grey, brown; and I decided t
  25. ok I am going to try this with out raising too many alarms, I recently modified one of the snake demons 77393 I wanted to show her off on the forum with out posting it somewhere else, so I modified it a little more and made it PG-13. I decided it had too many arms so 4 0f the 6 were not used. the remaining arms hands looked awful so I chopped them off and glued some GW dark elf arm holding a sword. the other was replaced with a gene stealer arm (I think) holding a sort of fang weapon (I found it in the infamous bits box) I filled in the holes where the other arms used to be smoothed it down a
