  1. Last of tonight's uploads, the more stereotypical Dwarves of Ganesha Games' "Hammer and Forge" Kickstarter. Oh, yeah, and a Weremole. The Dwarf Thief is my favorite of their sculpts, he's got a lot of character and a classic pose.
  2. Hi again, still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail. I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM. The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows. Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
  3. So here are two more dwarves from Ral Partha's old Fantasy Collectors Series that will eventually be in the next Ral Partha Kickstarter, hopefully coming out sometime this month. A crossbowman and a spearman, nice little figures. Like the last ones I did, they are really pretty small. The square bases they find themselves upon are 20 mm bases.
  4. Hi again everybody! So my last little chunk of miniatures, another quartet, is a group of miniatures that will be re-released under the Chaos Wars Kickstarter guise in the near future at Ral Partha. Their next Kickstarter will highlight dwarves and undead, as well as a nice assortment of new and old figures, one of which is a new 25 mm scale Vampire Queen from Julie Guthrie which is just beautiful. So anyhoos, here they are! I added three different views of the dwarf with the mattock/pick and shield because he's kind of interesting from all angles with his pose. The other three are pretty straight forward. I should also mention that I took these photos with my new iPhone 6S, which really did end up turning out a lot better than my little Canon.
  5. A group of unusual Dwarfs. They're all by Reaper, except for the Hunter, who is an old Warhammer Dwarf Adventurer.
  6. Hi all, I painted a while back the ruins and the dragon Nathavarr from "Dragons don't share 2" but never posted it as I wanted to have the whole set painted, including all the heroes, before doing so. So far, I still haven't touched the heroes yet... But while playing "pretend" with the kids, we started making a little scenery using DDS2 and a lots of dwarves I had around (some Reapers and old GW), all this while listening to "Diggy Diggy Hole". We had a great time and I thought the result was fun enough to take pictures and post. The whole model is coated with a thick layer of clear coat to withstand playtime with the kids, but this gave a weird blue hue to the stonework... The hardest part was to move the whole thing into my light box without having all minis fall over (most of them still did)... and manage to fit the model on the backdrop (the whole DDS2 scenery and the dragon wingspan is huge). So here it is: And Nathavarr by him (or her)self:
  7. Hi there, just finished these over the weekend, some old school Ral Partha dwarves from I can't remember what year, but somewhere between 1979 and 1982. I've always had a thing for this set, always enjoyed it as it was an old set of non-military type dwarves, truly "personalities" from a bygone age. I've had a bit of lighting problems with these ones as I seem to have a lot any more, but here are the best pictures I could take:
  8. Today I output the dwarves ("Dwarves Veterans" by Scibor) What I like about them is that they're bulky and (almost power-)armoured like an army from under the mountain should look like, yet still fitting into a fantasy plot. I was a bit worried about all the ornamental details on them but these chubby little tin cans practically paint themselves: sorry for the bad photo
  9. Finally getting caught up a little. This fellow's from the last batch I did, but I just finished his piddling base yesterday. Kevin Williams's Lesser Earth Elemental. I loooove this mini. Wish they made a larger version of him. Perhaps in a much-cheaper plaster material of some sort. Perhaps white. Anywho, I decided I didn't want to go gray. My rocks are always gray. Gonna try adding content here for the first time, as Photobucket's hit my last nerve. Thanks for looking!
  10. I started this piece about a month back, slowly finding time to work on it piece by piece between other projects. It is the second in a series of small dioramas made using minis from various companies that I had lying around going unused. This one uses some Kings of War Dwarves and a Reaper Ogre. This is also my first major attempt sculpting with foam to create a more interesting base than just rocky terrain that is my usual fall back. As an illustrator and designer, all my work tends to start with drawings first. Early concept:
  11. I decided to finish off a number of models off my painting table. These have been on my desk for quite a while. I am planning to use a red or something similar on the model. Comments welcome.
  12. I am dying!!!! SO close to Reapercon! So much to do!!! These guys are done. Barring some minor touchups and attaching them to the diorama, that is. These are the minis for my Reapercon diorama, so C&C is welcomed and desired. I didn't realize I never took pictures to do a show-off on the first cleric, so you just get a shot of him attached to the diorama. I have a ton more pictures (and laments ;) on my blog.. go check it out!) Please let me know what y'all think! And I will see some of y'all in a week's time at the Meet & Greet and then at the rest of the festivities!!!!
  13. I've just launched an indie RPG kickstarter for Cavernquest, a role playing game about dwarven adventure! Its big selling point is that players can create a group of dwarves and experience more of the world than just dungeon delving (though that is present). Dwarves can gain experience by mining, forging weapons, or even apprenticing other dwarves! There are lots of fun little systems for things like journeying in different underground enviroments, investing in communities, and creating magical items. I've got a free pdf of an early edition of the game up on the kickstarter page, and you guys are welcome to go download it. Read it, play it redistribute it however you want! I'm planning on releasing the final game as a pay-what-you-want pdf and as a physical book. I'm open to questions, comments, and suggestions, so let me know what you think! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/805665166/cavernquest
  14. I found these guys via the daily overstock markdown via a certain online retailer. Absolutely loved the looks of them. Was not disappointed. They're really simple and I think it's fair to say not as highly detailed as a lot of stuff, but they totally feed my ongoing dwarf addiction. As best I can tell, they're from RAFM, a line called "Death in the Dark" per the Lost Minis wiki. I regrettably do not know the sculptor--I'd like to, so if you know let's hear. ETA: sculpted by Bob Murch. Many thanks to Darsc for that info. Thanks for looking!

  16. So a few days ago, by purest luck and coincidence, I was wandering around on-line and came upon a miniature that I have always wanted and have already painted, a Kenzer Hackmaster Female Gnome Illusionist that I had been wanting to get a second copy of now for years and there it was at a wonderful price. Out there as well on the same web site were a few old TSR miniatures, and I grabbed some TSR elves and dwarves, only three bucks per set, so I snatched those up as well.
  17. Some of you may have been following my thread over in the WIP section of craft corner as I decided to finish a full kickstarter pledge. That's right I have actually completed and painted all the items in the pledge. The models in question are the dwarf brewers by Oathsworn. I also picked up their resin furniture as well. The pledge consisted of 12 superbly sculpted dwarves all involved with a brewing family. I kept the paint scheme fairly simple and the selection of colours limited to tie the models together. Introducing them in no particular order. Heather McFiggin "Down in one" Duncan McFiggin Hamish McFiggin Pipes McFiggin Fraser McFiggin Ancient McFiggin Conner McFiggin Dougall McFiggin Morag McFiggin Old McFiggin Donald McFiggin And finally Mad Angus McFiggin These models were great fun to paint, and I think my hair and detailing has improved. As always comments and suggestions welcome.
  18. Well it's been a while since I posted a WIP but I have decided to do one for the recent purchases I have made. This is for the most recent Oathsworn kickstater. I got a full set of dwarves as well as the set of resin tavern furniture. I decided to paint all the resin furniture first. They don't really add to the 28mm figure total but they are very nice. I cleaned them up and gave them a quick undercoat. I started with the wooden furniture. I used a few different browns and then gave them all a brown wash. The metal parts were then painted and I used a standard Matt varnish to finish them off Next up I started on the stone items. A simple dark grey followed by two highlights. Here are some details of the cobblestone bases. They are really highly detailed. As always comments welcome. I will be cleaning the dwarves later, and hopefully get them undercoated over the weekend.
  19. I've finally painted a couple of dwarfs from our first Kickstarter, Alric the smith, and Burlok Baldursson… and as a shameless plug, our current KS only has a couple of days to go! http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/55808-clan-mcfiggin-dwarf-kickstarter/ cheers, Michael
  20. I thought I'd start a thread of the recent miniatures work I've done. Here's the most recent, my attempts at Kostchtchie the Deathless (the D&D/Pathfinder Demon Lord version, not the Russian mythical figure)
  21. Logrim Battlefury leads his patrol through the wastelands of the sandhills. Abandoned buildings of what used to be a small village sit nestled in the valley. A'arrock, Logrim's griffon companion streaks through the sky to the far side of the village. Logrim advances his patrol, muttering "That fool bird is gonna get killed one day flying too far ahead!" Suddenly, A'arrock plummets to the ground. It did not look like his normal stooping dive, so Logrim double times the patrol to see what's up. ******* Uru, the River Troll was leading a motley crue of misfits into the barren wastelands. Why did Khong-To want him out here? There was little water to be had, and the troops were always complaining about not having enough water. If Khong-To wanted them out here so much, why did he poison the well at the village they were approaching? What's this? Scouts are reporting a griffon approaching above the village. Reading his patrol, Uru has Ssudai attempt to ground the bird so it can't report his presence to the Dwarves. From hiding, Ssudai successfully brings down the griffon on a small hill just this side of the village. Uru's archers open fire while his ground troops charge up the hill to engage the griffon. The griffon puts ups a good fight, wounding a few of his troops, but is only able to kill one of them before dying. ******* Logrim and his patrol reach the far edge of the village, only to see the griffon go down, surrounded by a reptus patrol. Logrim's scouts have not reported any enemy troops in the area, so this is a bit of surprise. Issuing the advance command, Logrim's patrol engages the Reptus patrol on the hill. Crossbowmen take down one of the wounded soldiers, but before the dwarven soldiers can advance, a giant river troll leading more ground troops comes out of the tree line. ******** My son and a good friend of mine wanted to learn to play Warlord, since that's pretty much what I have been talking about since Reapercon... We built two 500 point armies from my two vampire packs. My son just had to have a griffon... 20% of the total build... My buddy chose Reptus, since those were the "cool" models in front of him on the table when we sorted out all the figures. Both were gung-ho when they started, talking smack about how fast the other would be going down... 2.5 hours later, just having finished the second turn as we spent a lot of time talking about tactics, mistakes in placement (after it was done), how one set of my dice is "fickle" and the other set seems to be "loaded" for my boy, but definitely "counterloaded" for my buddy... They each killed a few of the soldier level mobs, didn't really get into casting much. Made the mistake of not having a healer in my son's troop, which might have saved the griffon... All in all, we had a great time! Son had so much fun, he started asking at breakfast on Sunday morning when we could play again. We played so long on Sunday afternoon, I missed the first 35 minutes of the USA vs Portugal World Cup Match! That AAR will be posted soon!
  22. Update 12/16: Check the latest post for pics of Dwarves, Sheep, and Pack Mules. So tiny! So, I'm not so good at updating things, but here's a thread for my random progress reports as I feel the need to post them. What got me started on this is my recent acquisition of some 6mm figures (from Baccus 6mm in the UK). Here's a pic of some of them primed, sitting on one of my many HA in-progress pieces. The 6mm figs are from the Dwarves line by Baccus, the lower large figure is Reaper's Mad Scientist (Female), the upper large figure is Darksword's Female Mage on Stairs (they are included for scale comparison). Further updates eventually. -Dave
  23. I haven't posted pictures here in a long time but I just finished these and figured I would. I just finished this little Blood Bowl side project. I needed a distraction from my western town of Calamity as I was definitely in a rut with that and this looked like something that wouldn't take to much time. One of my buddies is heavily into Blood Bowl so I set out to find a team that looked like it would be fun to paint. This team, from Neomics,of biker dwarves, with a couple of fill ins from Gaspez-Arts, fit the bill. Here are some team pictures (which have been cropped because the cheerleader is NSFW). The bases still need a little work but I'm calling this project done since I can pack it up and take it to a game. Not my best work by any means but they will look fine on the table. I have a lot of individual shots (along with uncropped team shots) on my blog: link
  24. This will be another long tale, fraught with peril, passion, and whisky. Let's start with a pic: Here's a Bathalian Centurion for my Darkspawn army, with his hands in the air like he just don't care. I got on a tear of painting with my super Cthulhu-ey force, and fought some great battles with it. Well, forum member wildbill reads my posts, and being a fellow Warlord player and enthusiast, drafts an army list of Dwarves for my friend Dalton to play against my super cool, nearly finished painting, jumping up and down that I finished anything force. So the table is readied: This is some terrain from GF9 Battlefield in a box, Mesa, and Crystals, a trophy crystal I looted from the trash at the office, and to really drive home the Cthulhu, a jellyfish in a crystal in the middle of the table. My first sin, pride. My second sin: So my force is on the table: Dalton's dwarf force, with many proxies and a large, unassembled, unpainted Stone Spirit in the middle deploys his line across the board. Here we are perched at the end of the first turn of movement. The damanable Griffon is into my Fodder, and I'm already sweating bullets. Here is what happened later, with my reporting to follow. I'll give the play by play in a little while, I'm clocking back in to work from lunch, but it will happen.
