  1. Hi, I'm continuing my journey to paint the miniatures for the board game Dungeon Saga. This time I completed the expansion "the Tyrant of Halpi". For this expansion, the heroes are facing a dragon and its thralls. So of course, there is a dragon to paint and 2 new heroes: a Halfing Thief and a Human Paladin. (That Halfling! She is so Tiny!!! It almost feels like painting a 15mm scale) As usual, the objective was efficiency for tabletop quality. For the dragon, I experimented with speed painting / laziness on a big figure. I wanted to see how many steps I could skip and still end up with a decent looking mini. So it was primed dark gray, I added a dusting of white from the top (for zenital highlight) and then covered the rest with washes only (no full colour basecoat, except for the blue back scales). For the end-result, the colours are quite muted (there isn't much colour saturation in washes)... It gives a certain style, but I let you judge. The big bonus is that it was painted super quickly (but wahes take a while to dry). I did spend a bit of time building up the dragon's base though... as it was disappointingly plain flat (all the bases, in the game where pre-textured with slates, but not for the dragon )... C&C appreciated

    Vito Vendetta

    Presenting Vito Vendetta, the undead Halfling mobster from Micro Art Studios Wolsung. Painted him purely to try out my new rust paints on his chains, probably should've chosen something simpler for a first attempt, but I think they turned out pretty good, as has the mini overall. As always, any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  4. I wasn't sure where to put this. I'm organizing my pictures of the minis I painted this year for the eventual year's end round-up come next January. Meanwhile, I put together a graphic of all the halflings and gnomes I painted for the paint-a-Bones-halfling-or-gnome challenge last January (and a few stragglers in February). I don't remember what the challenge was actually called, sorry. But it was the first and so far the only painting challenge I've tried. There are a few Reaper metal figures here too. Anyhow, I'm rather pleased with how they came out, particularly given the short (for me) deadline.

    60011: Lem, Iconic Halfling Bard

    Hi! Today i finished Lem for my friends birthday, miniature is for our d&d campaign. Base from microartstudio, and gold is nmm. Very nice miniature for painting. Comments are welcome.
  6. I think these are what's next for me to practice on. Only way to get better is to keep putting paint to mini!

    60178: Enora, Iconic Arcanist

    Hi !!! A really quick paint for a excellent mini from Bobby Jackson :
  8. As those keeping score at home surely must know by now, I loooove Sandra Garrity's work. Elia Shadowfeet, Female Halfling Thief, is a fantastic mini, innit? I was pretty happy with how mine turned out, here. Thanks for looking.

    Grenadier Halfling Ranger/Archer

    Painted for the June resolutionary challenge, I submit to you 1 halfling archer made by Grenadier 30+ years ago. Please let me know what you think.

    Grenadier Halfling Thief

    An old school Grenadier Halfling thief, painted up during Inarah's Memorial Day weekend weekend painting binge. I finally finished the basing last night. C&C is welcome, thanks for looking.

    89012: Lem, Iconic Bard

    Back for the January Bones Beauty Contest I painted up a half dozen or so Bones halflings and gnomes (and enough more metal halflings to make a baker's dozen, but they will get shown later). This is Lem, Iconic Bard. I painted his facial expression after a particular mischievous and charming nephew of mine. I played a flute like his in school; the reflections on the flute are all painted on.

    02769: Woody, Halfling Ranger

    During the January Bones Beauty Pageant in addition to a handful of Bones gnomes and halflings, I painted some metal ones as well. This is Woody the Ranger in his red-lined black greatcoat with red toggle buttons. He's also in the Bones II Kickstarter, but this one is metal. I made some attempt to paint one side of his face in shadow but am not sure how successful it was.
  13. So, I wanted to do a group of minis that were more thematic and played on having more character in the minis rather than just the generic fighter, wizard, etc. Therefore, I played on the idea of a rogue as a cat burglar by having the burglar actually meeting the cat. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I thought the hair and the fabric of the clothing was particularly solid. I've definitely got more room to improve, but I was at least fairly satisfied with this one. The extreme close up of the face shows where I could improve the smoothness of the skin and such. Maybe more attention needed for the eyes themselves. In addition to simply making a figure, I was also thinking in terms of what would make creating a mold easier (for example, how far in should the cat lean, how far forwards/sideways should the angle of his arms be, etc.). I think it would be doable. On a side note, just want to give a shout out to Cosmic_Mastermind for giving some really good feedback on how to improve doing facial features.

    02110: Darby Darkleaf

    This is 02110: Darby Darkleaf, or rather one of a set of three, 03359: DHL Classics: Female Halflings. They are not quite identical, since the individual figure has a larger base than the three in the set. All three halflings in the set are tiny and Old School style, with especially small faces with eyes that are shaped a little difficult to paint. They are, however, very cute. I painted her eyes rather larger than they were actually sculpted. I think this might be the first time in twenty years I've tried to paint a mini red-blonde. I'm not sure how successful she turned out.

    02831: Olivia, Halfling

    Here she is, the last of the hobbits (and gnomes) I started during the January Bones Beauty Pageant. Olivia, "halfling" could maybe be a druid, or a wizard. At any rate, she a non-thief hobbit female. Many times when I start one of these things I think, "Oh, I should try painting in subdued colors and earth tones." Hah. So anyway, here's the world's least camouflaged hobbit druid. Or most ivy-loving wizard. Or something. I love that she has a loaf of bread in her sling of scrolls and books.
  16. This is one of my favorite halfling sculpts. Melantha is smaller than some other recent halflings (like the statuesque Elia Shadowfeet Mark II), but I like her attitude. There's so much life and movement in this sculpt!
  17. Inspired by the January Bones Little People Beauty Pageant, I pulled out some of my metal hobbits and painted them up as well. This is Elia Shadowfeet, Female Halfling Thief. I discovered I also had an earlier incarnation of Elia, much more old-school in style but sculpted, as this one was, by Sandra Garrity. I do like the more modern approach in this figure. She's pretty tall for a halfling, reasonably armored, and packed for a serious expedition. Looking at some of the other paint jobs, like Derek Schubert's stunning version in Reaper's online store, I am struck by how soft mine look. The colors kind of melt into each other and are sometimes ambiguous as to what they are and where they go. This is also almost my first attempt in 20 years to paint a blonde mini (this was the first, and only by a few hours). I do try to make use of the broccoli bases. This one maybe looks a little more tarry than I intended.

    02100: Trissa Cloverhill

    This is Reaper 02100: Trissa Cloverhill, the last of the three female halflings in the set 03359: DHL Classics: Female Halflings. They are a cute set of three extra-small old-school-style hobbits. Trissa's legs felt a little bare to me, so I added blue breeches.

    77165: Hellakin Goregutter, Halfling Rogue

    For my character Nivin Slimheart over in Dilvish the Deliverer's Talos: City of Intrigue and Adventure! RP thread. In the RP, he carries a longsword (two-handed, since he's a halfling) as his main weapon, so here, I've swapped the smaller sword Hellakin normally carries for a GW Mordheim sword.

    77165: Hellakin Goregutter

    Another of the Bones halflings-and-gnomes I painted for the January Bones Beauty Pageant. I like his active pose. I think he has the biggest feet of all the halflings I painted. His eyes were dark and a little hard to get to. I was trying for a glint out of the shadows effect for his left eye (on our right). As with all the swords and shiny bits, the reflections are painted on.

    02058: Elia Shadowfeet

    This is 02058: Elia Shadowfeet, which came in a set with two others, 03359: DHL Classics Female Halflings. She's a dainty little Old-School thing. To give an idea of size, she is standing on a standard Chessex dice box. There is a later version of Elia who is an amazon by comparison. Both were sculpted by Sandra Garrity. She was sculpted with (probably) bare legs, but I added painted-on breeches because that tunic looked mighty short and drafty. I painted her dark because dark hobbits, why not. Reflections on the short sword are painted on. I think the whites on her sleeves got a bit overexposed in the photos except for the back view. There are a lot of different colors in the shading of those sleeves. Her face was a bit difficult to paint. It is very small, and the eyes had a sort of agressive shape with two pits on the side of a ball. It took a little finagling to make it work.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Dragon Bait

    Right before I was distracted by Bones II's arrival, I did get quite a lovely set of minis from Dragon Bait. I think they have wonderful potential, and I wish them the best. I never thought I'd see a crowdsourced project arrive at my doorstep less than a month after it ended. To start, a group shot:
  23. Here's Hellakin, one of my entrants for the Little People Beauty Pageant and part of my count for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge. I painted him in a single day so I'm pretty proud of being able to get that done, though he's not a speed paint by any means. Struggled a little to get his hair highlighted correctly, and not sure if I made the right color choices (the mister thinks I should've made him more flashy). I kept messing up the layering on his cloak too, making my layers too watery and having to repeat and glaze it back down. Anyways, I'm glad I've knocked him off my list, comments and criticism is as always appreciated.

    Cori, Halfling fighter

    Well, I finished a mini for one of my Pathfinder characters after about 5 months of not painting. Maybe I'll try this one again after more practice. Or maybe not since between mini, weapon conversion and base It took 3 Bones minis to do it. Suggestions for improvement are welcome. See also my work in progress thread.

    Cori, Halfling fighter

    So inspiration finally struck me for this month's bones beauty pageant challenge. I'll be making a core-only glaive-wielding Halfling fighter, and I've picked Cassie as the base model to work with. Given that my last attempt with this model ended with her blindfolded and used to test new sealers, I think I have a lot of room to improve. I first want to convert her spear into something slightly more glaive-ish. After rummaging through my vampire set, I deprive some poor mummy of its khopesh blade. Pinning something this small is a challenge. My pin vice is too high-caliber for this, so I heat a straight-pin from my sewing kit under hot water, and stab it into the spear shaft. Then I clip it off and use another hot pin to put a pilot hole in the khopesh blade. After briefly gluing the khopesh blade to my thumb, I try again and get everything glued together. Here she is next to a spare. The basecoats start to go on. Here I am thus far. Does the purple in her trousers contrast enough with the charcoal of her belt?
