  1. Another speed paint I brought home from the con and cleaned up. She's so little she really need brightening up so I gave her the green tunic and red hair. Her base is tiny, not even half an inch across and I almost put her on a washer for stability. Then I thought that might be too much so I left her as is.
  2. Painted this cool looking Halfling and his rabbit companion and was pretty happy with how they turned out. I thought the rabbit looked like a desert hare, so I went with a sandy theme.
  3. Another pair of convention speed paints repainted at home. I did not realize the guy on the left was a gnome, so he got painted as a goblin. Similarly, I painted the one on the right as a halfling paladin. When I think of gnomes I envision fat little guys in pointy red caps, according to traditional scandinavian lore.
  4. The way of the Dawi-kin A goal of Acquiring every single Reaper Dwarf and painting em up. Master check list has been put together that will be updated with time. Any duplicate model will receive conversion using Reaper weapons. I like my check-off lists and achievement progress icons. Green box indicates the mini is owned, the picture next to model indicates that is has been painted. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Reaper, Dwarf Mancatcher, sku: 14463 Made this guy a Noblemen with bright colored clothes and golden glave. Reaper, King Axehelm of Kragmarr, 77478 Wanted a dirty worn look on this dwarf kind, and a high contrast in color scheme of white and red. Made a mistake on this one using wrong type of shade that made everything glossy, had to layer addition shades of different brand to take out the gloss. turned out a bit darker than planned. Reaper, Dwarven Brewmeister, 02559 Quite a strait forward model to paint. Did not want crazy colors for this guy. A variation of royal blue color scheme with gold patterns and closed eye lids could be interesting. The rest of the gang. Those mugs man, are like half the size of that poor little barrel. Wanted grouped colors of tans and browns to create tonal contrast instead of use of intense colors. These are quite easy to paint, good models. Reaper, Hagar, Dwarven Hero, 77482 Wanted to make Hagar and Durgam Deepmug into a two brother team of green-beards. Just leather, iron, and green. Reaper, Durgam Deepmug Dwarf Hero, 77400 The green-beard brother of Hagar. Rangers both, with green rune weapons Reaper, Dwarf Royal Weapomaster, 77574 There is nothing royal about this malicious looking guy. Went for high contrast red/white. I was thinking of possible conversions, I don't know, this is not the most interesting dwarf model they have for that. Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011 Gave him axe and a shield from reaper Weapon pack III Usually I do not go for bright colors, yet this warrior needed some frost armor! (too much terreria of late) Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011 The original model with a bit older paint job, or battle dirt paint job ;) But with TrueBlood effect paint from GreenStuff Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073 This is one of the cooler looking models, even though was a bit hard to paint. Older paint job, dirty, battle weathered. Went with Conan the Barbarian face paint. Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073 Same model with Weapon Pack III axe upgrade. Most recent paint job, cleaner with different paint scheme of bronze and green.
  5. First couple of Halflings for a Blood Bowl team commission. These gals are ridiculously fun to paint. So many silly little details on them! Flocking will be done on everything at one time once everything is painted. 12/31/23 - ALL THE HALFLINGS HAVE BEEN ADDED. Please scroll down to see them all.
  6. Hello All, Here are photos of a 07102 Bones USA Dungeon Dwellers "Halfling Fighter" I completed a few days ago. Thank you for looking.
  7. Morning everybody, just got this one finished and photographed this early morn, one of Michael Evan's halflings, a mage: Big fan of Stonehaven and especially like this figure, as he looks like a traditional Tolkienesque adventuring hobbit, but with that caveat that he has got himself a bit of magic. Way back when in the olden days, halflings were either fighters or thieves, so this is a nice little modern twist. Anyways, enjoy!
  8. Another little guy who has been on the table too long. I thought for a while he was one of the kid heroes from B5, but it turns out he's a gnome. Whatever. I tried a little blue wash on the armor to put some color into it. I find painting steel or chainmail to be one of the most boring things ever. He's shown here with a lone rat from B1 who somehow got separated from the rest of the pack when they got painted years ago. So now they are adventuring buddies.
  9. Hello fine fans of fantastic miniatures! So I can't tell you exactly when, but months back Dark Sword Miniatures put out this miniature, two hobbit scouts one standing on the other's shoulders sculpted by Bobby Jackson, an obvious homage to some old Grenadier halflings sculpted I believe by Andrew Chernak back in the early eighties. As soon as I saw this miniature I immediately thought that all fine fans of old school miniatures would be buying the new version and then painting them both up to happily compare the two. Well, until now I hadn't seen any such "explosion" of comparisons, so I figured maybe I just need to be the first. So here is the most recent Dark Sword version, sculpted by Mr. Jackson: and here is are the original hobbits, sculpted by Andrew Chernak back in maybe 1982 or so?: and here they are side by side: I tried to use as much as possible the same or similar color scheme in each version. The only thing that did happen is that there is a Dark Sword version of the hobbits scouts one on top of each other with two separate cloaks, but I accidentally grabbed the one with a single cloak only. anyhoos, enjoy this blast to the past and let me know what you think!
  10. A bit under the radar this time, but Midlam Miniatures has a new set: Through the Icy Wastes! A Halfling Expedition https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/through-the-icy-wastes-a-halfling-expedition Anyone inspired for a "At the Mountains of Madness" adventure team?
  11. My wife thinks that she looks like a sketchy little character...I'm inclined to agree. I went for a frosted mug effect with her drink...I think it came out okay.
  12. Really happy with the way this one turned out. I used her a while back as a Halfling necromancer in a campaign that sort of fizzled out. I feel like she'd also work as a gnome (and as a warlock).
  13. So, working on things here and there, and here is the last mini that I just finished, a little Stonehaven halfling, a female druid. Cute little figure, pretty easy paint job once I was actually able to get moving on her. Druid, so natural colors, greens, browns, yellow, et cetera. Hopefully the photo isn't too dark: She had these little shoulder pads, that originally I thought armor, but then afterwards, I thought maybe wood shingles, like bark or something, but then thought it would be more visually pleasing if they were mushrooms. Hope they aren't too distracting. I was listening not too long ago about color theory and not having too much clashing colors and such, but sometimes, if it looks like a mushroom, you have to paint it like a mushroom! Anyhoos, hope everybody that went to Reapercon had a delightful time and were fully inspired to paint and keep painting!
  14. Good evening all you Reaperniks! So tonight I've got another Stonehaven Miniature completed, sculpted by Mike Evans. This one is a halfling barbarian, who reminds me a little bit of the feral kid in Mad Max, don't have any idea what his name might have been, and a tad bit of that one Cha-Ka character in Land of the lost. I think it's just due to all the big hair this gal's got. anyhow without further ado here she is: and with the original drawings from the Kickstarter I think I kind of kept with a desert, browns and oranges color scheme. Anyhoos, enjoy!
  15. Hi all you Reaper cats and kittens! So today a neat little figure, a Halfling Tiefling, from Stonehaven Miniatures, sculpted by their owner, Mike Evans. This one was released with their Kickstarter a few years back that was mostly dedicated to all sorts of interesting halfling models. I decided on white hair just to give some nice contrast to the pink skin, and then mostly purples and pinks mixed with reds and oranges. and then here, just for fun and a size comparison is a Reaper Tiefling I did a little while back, Fillyjonk. I kind of did some similar things color-wise, even though Fillyjonk's skin was more reddish to start out with and the little hobbit more pink. And after having painted both of these, I'm really looking forward to Bob Ridolfi's Kickstarter tieflings! Wondering what other colors I might use with them a year or so from now. So anyhoos, enjoy!
  16. 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.
  17. Good evening to all of you in the final week of the Kickstarter! Not at all related to Kickstartes, but once a part of one, this next miniature is a female Halfling Bard, sculpted by Mike Evans at Stonehaven Miniatures. This mini in itself was part of his Halfling Kickstarter, which created a hole bunch of different hobbits, guys and gals, with different professions and adventuring classes. and a close up of her face: Once again, no idea on the colors I wanted to use, so I basically just went for the skin, face and hair, and then had to start working on her attire, inside out, shirt first, later pants and then hat and armor. Ended up with this yellow, blue and pink pallet, which hopefully doesn't clash too much! Anyhoos, enjoy and put in your Kickstarter bids!
  18. My first, and hopefully not only, mini completed in 2022! Gabby, here, is a perfect sculpt for one of my favorite NPCs. I absolutely love Christine’s absurdly characterful, nicely detailed sculpts. Hyacinth “Cindy” Dabblethwaite is the middle child of the halfling family behind Dabblethwaite’s Fine Teas, and the champion of the underground bare knuckle fight ring her otherwise very proper family runs in the cellars of their tea house.
  19. Midlam keeps chugging new sets that are hard to resist. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/halfling-domestic-infantry I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.
  20. I am planning on running a Savage Worlds Tyrnador campaign. The campaign steals heavily from the new Pathfinder Savage World ruleset. My son created a hallfing commander and he chose the halfling with the torch from the Dungeon Dwellers set as his character. I modified the mini by adding a banner (after watching several tutorial videos). He selected a green 4-leaf clover on an orange background for the banner. Was a fun little project with some neat freehand. His friend created a dwarf ranger/smith as his character and choose the Stonehaven Mechanist (SKU 2795) to represent him:
  21. Hello all you denizens of Reapershire! So been working a little bit more on some Bones V goodness, and today I finished the Female Halfling from the Dungeon Dwellers set: As always, couldn't choose colors, but once I got the colors figured out, it was pretty smooth sailing from there. I have a little bit of flash issues, it seems that plastic flash works a bit differently than metal. I am seemingly merciless with metal flash, but too cautious with the Bones material, but I don't know if that can be noticed or not here. In any case, enjoy and have a very nice weekend!
  22. Presenting Alfredo "The Dandy" Francini, a low level mobster with a love of brightly coloured clothes, he's part of the Scylla faction from the now defunct (I think) game Wolsung by Micro Arts Studio. This guy has been sitting in my 'to be painted' pile for far too long, so I worked on him for the last couple of weeks in between other projects. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  23. Dan's Build Journal #1 Bag End Completed Project Photos: My Other Build Journals: Greetings all! I recently undertook the task of creating several display pieces to serve as scenic backdrops when photographing my miniatures, however being the procrastinator that I am, I have instead found myself with an ever growing pile of unfinished projects. In an effort to break this cycle I am no longer allowing myself to start new projects until my current one is complete. I figure a progress journal would be a great way to hold myself accountable, and hopefully by sharing my build process even inspire others into giving diorama building a try. Anyway, without further ado here is my current work in progress, a good old fashioned hobbit hole, my interpretation of Bag End. I managed to pick up a cheap and incomplete resin kit (front wall and chimney) on Ebay a while back. I painted it about a month ago, and it has sat on my desk gathering dust ever since. Today I finally started to put in some real work on the build. 29/05/20 - Laying the foundation. The first job was to lay the foundations of the build. I hot glued thick polystyrene sheets to an old photo frame and then cut them to shape using a hot wire cutter. The challenging part was then getting the front wall to fit convincingly into the hill, being an incomplete kit, the front wall was completely rectangular and just didn't look right no matter how I positioned it. To fix this, I measured out and then cut some thick card stock in to triangular sections, and then cut some thinner strips to match the wooden beams on the front of the house. I then glued these to the house so that the walls now followed the contours of the hill more organically. I also made some curtains using some old fabric (The original kit has holes for windows and I needed to hide the polystyrene behind them). Next I mixed up some Sculptamold and started to cover the polystyrene and base of the picture frame before adding some rocks that I had cast previously with Plaster of Paris (They are probably hard to make out in the photo, as they blend in with the white sculptamold, but once painted they should stand out nicely). With that done I decided to call it a day, and give the sculptamold the night to fully dry before adding any paint. And that is pretty much how I spent my Friday afternoon. Apologies for the poor picture quality, I took the photo during the evening in poor lighting with my ancient phone camera. I'll get some better pictures up once I have something more substantial to share.
  24. the polka dots took forever. I am happier with how the face came out than the free-hand.
  25. The City Watch. Charged with lantern and truncheon to keep the peace and vigilantly guard against threats thereunto. Again, I'm a sucker for the buckled slouch hats and the shoulder-draping collar. Midlam's Halflings again, featuring Kate Redhanded: more angles: ...and Clubbo Drubbins. Can't say I did such a good job on his lighting as on Kate's, but can for sure say I've done worse. Bringing light into dark places: "Halt! Who goes there!" And a whole crowd of citizens ready to deal with thieves, spies, monsters, witches, or rat-men. (Guest appearances by Abram Duskwalker and Mira, Damaris Duskwarden, Sheriff Drumfasser, and the Gravedigger.)
