  1. All the Whos down in Who-ville liked Christmas a LOT. But... the GRINCH, who lived just North of Who-ville, did NOT. He got a wonderful, awful idea. "With this hat and this coat, I'll look just like Saint Nick!" Since reindeer are scarce, there were none to be found. So he took and old antler and a piece of red thread and tied it on top of his dog Max's head. He got stuck only once, in a rather tight pinch--but if Santa could do it, then so could the Grinch! He really IS a heel! A monster! A crooked jerky jockey! Turnaround, and more Max (feel free to imagine Thurl Ravenscroft singing a basso diss track while scrolling): By chance, he ran into Little Cindy-Lou Who, who was no more than two. "Why are you taking our tree, Santy? Why?" But, you know that old Grinch was so sly, and so slick, that he thought up a lie. And he thought it up quick. More pix: You have to love the glee in this Krampus's face--so much job satisfaction. I modified him with an airclay hat and repurposed the birch broom as a folded-up aluminum christmas tree. Max the Dog is Rufus from 44114, Isobael and Rufus, with a greenstuff antler and some red thread. Little Cindy-Lou is a Stonehaven Gnome Child, and a truly tiny wee sculpt. The bow was an addition. This one was fun to put together! It made my heart grow three sizes. Enjoy your Roast Beasts this holiday season!
  2. Now THIS is a goldang Witch Hunter! 30011, Arkus Harn, is a delightfully grim early modern monster hunter, perfect for the Cthulhu-in-the-1600s setting of ALL OF THEM VVITCHES. That's the face of IMPLACABLE RIGHTEOUSNESS! You don't ever want to see that in real life. Bestriding some vanquished horror, sabre a-drip with its foul ichors. A half-pint Solomon Kane. Here too is a Dwarf Vampire Hunter from Stonehaven. I love this sculpt, from the stake bandolier to the flowing hair to the warhammer to the rad hat. Decided on a red scheme, partly to match Mira the Inquisitor from Bombshell (below) and partly for Carmen Sandiego reference. There are eyes under that hat brim but it's not easy to photograph at the right angle. A great sculpt, here to stab the forces of darkness. Here too from Stonehaven is the Gremlin Stranger. Rather a highwayman sort of look, but this little goblin has the Puritan hat and half-cape; he's got to be part of the same outfit as the other monster hunters. Look at that pepperbox pistol / handcannon! And those sweet goggles! No, this little gobbo is surely part of the witchfinding team:
  3. So while everybody else is gallivanting delightfully and happily at Reapercon, I've been working on this little lady, which seemed like she would never be finished but finally got photos of her this morning. Here she is: Armor might have come out a little blue, but overall I'm pretty satisfied with how she came out. My initial difficulty was to see if I was going to make her skin match exactly with the hair/fur, but went for something lighter, so hopefully that turned out okay. Anyhoos, hope you all enjoy, and hope Reapercon is going really groovily for everybody, hope to get there some day!
  4. So here are two delightful bugbear lasses that I just finished painting this morning and got set up on bases. As I've said before, I really dig Michael Evan's sculpts, always full of personality and not so typical of what's out there. In this case, two rather buttock kicking female bugbear lasses, a Rogue and a Warlord (war lady?): First the Rogue: and now the Warlord: These are 3D STL prints, from Mike's collection on myminifactory.com. He's got tons of really cool minis out there and the collection keeps growing, definitely worth checking out, especially for you who have those delightful 3D printing machines. Anyhoos, enjoy!
  5. Good even all you lovers of all things Reaper! Here's hoping you have love left for other brands as well, as tonight I'm posting a hobgoblin alchemist from the 3D printable world of Stonehaven Miniatures, digitally sculpted by Michael Evans. I really love this figure and I even like my paint job, even though as of always I noticed two spots I'm not too fond of, now that I see her on the "big screen". Not sure if I can be bothered enough to fix, but we'll see. It's already on to the next miniature I fear! Oddly enough I almost feel like the gold turned out okay, but I do see a few spots that need marked improvement. Anyhoos, hope you enjoy! My only other issue was the blue hobgoblin nose that Just didn't dare put on here, much as I didn't dare put the blue nose on my Reaper female hobgoblin archer. But I still think she came out okay in any case.
  6. Hello Reapervalians! So tonight a Stonehaven Pixie, sculpted digitally by Michael Evans from Stonehaven Miniatures. If you're into 3D printings he's been putting lots of things out on My Mini Factory. I had to lighten these pictures up just a tad because I thought they had come out too dark, so hopefully they look all right. As always, colors really hard to choose, knew I wanted natural colors, but didn't know if just greens or some pops of colors. Anyways, hope you all enjoy! She comes on her her Little Rock and without a base. Definitely going to be painting more Stonehaven in the near future! It's kind of weird, as I approach them, they kind of make me think they are going to be "hard" to paint, with lots of little details and for example the space between the body and the wings, but they really turned out quite simply. I haven't really had any problems yet with getting access to parts of Stonehaven minis, usually pretty easy and a pleasure to paint.
  7. Hello all your Reaperrocious folks! So I've got a few 3D prints of some Stonehaven Miniatures minis, and here is the one I just finished, a female gnome druid. I based her color scheme mostly off the pre-sculpting art that Mike Evans did, and one thing I tried this time which I actually like how it turned out was I used Gingerbread Tan, one of the Christmas colors from Reaper, as the base color of her skin. and to reflect that Gingerbread Tan skin, did a few close ups of her face, which I'm actually quite pleased with, eyes turned out okay and didn't have to retake pictures after seeing the first time like I do a lot when I see the first set of pictures and I notice lots of dust or specks or a rebellious piece or grass, et cetera. Anyhoos, she was a very fun figure to paint. I was a little intimidated with her size and some of the details, but ultimately pretty easy to work on, and her eyes very exposed to the point and large enough that they turned out pretty well too. So hope you enjoy!
  8. 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!
  9. We know that minis are art. Painting them, and sculpting them too. But THIS particular mini is art mirroring other art; I feel like the medieval German master stonecarver Adam Kraft was the inspiration for this. The fellow could turn rock into lacework in the Gothic style, and one of his most famous pieces includes a carven self-portrait supporting the ponderous structure above. That same sense of endurance under immense weight, and that same chin-beard, are evident in this laboring dwarf. I do love the detail of the cannonball pouch. No idea how heavy a cannon of that size would be, but at minimum I would say 'hella.' The trudging posture really sells it. The jezzail came from the Futuristic Weapons Reaper sprue, 50025. Those cogwheels fit pretty nicely in a fantasy Early Modern past. Hope you enjoy!
  10. I had so many miniatures to post I decided to break it into two posts... I might have posted this before but it one of my favorites so I'm making sure it gets posted. I'm just so happy with how it turned out. This was a really quick paint job on a Clockwork Golem from Diehard Miniatures. The base was 3D printed and apparently I didn't do a very good job with the supports. Looks okay in person, but boy does the photo show off the imperfections. Another fantastic miniature from Red Bard Games. Really happy with the NMM on this miniature from Stonehaven. I built a custom base using clay bricks and tried some new things. In general it turned out but, in retrospect I don't think the arch makes any sense. A set of three plague worms from Zabavka Workshop. The red one turned out great, I'm really happy with the eyes. The purple worm was kind of a disappointment, I'm not great at painting purple and the mouth was impossible to photograph well. The final worm reminded me of a flower so I tried to give it that effect. Very happy with how it turned out.
  11. I've done so much painting in the last couple of years and I'm always too lazy to take pictures. Finally got around to it.... All Reaper Paints, all the time. For some reason I just love miniatures wearing packs. Awesome Snail from Monkstone Miniatures Copied this paint scheme from Kangaroorex (brilliant idea, sandy looking from the top, sky looking from the bottom). This is the Western Desert Dragon (03670) from Reaper. It looks like this is an old model and there were some problems with the mold. I had to cut the base apart to get it to lie flattish and the wings didn't fit quite right. Still a very cool model. Three demon toads from Rotten Factory. I'm really happy with how the shell turned out on this super creepy snail rider from Whilhelm Miniatures. Very cool miniature from Red Bard Games. I was really happy with the wheel tracks I made with green stuff, but I'm a little disappointed with the grass. I was aiming for patches of dead grass in the road, but I think I ended up with too much contrast between the grass colors. Next time I plan to mix the static grass to get more realistic variations. Three virus themed Beholders from Westfalia Miniatures Is that a halfling riding a giant goose? I don't know why, but it is awesome. Miniforge Miniatures Dwarf riding a Yak from Stonehaven Miniatures
  12. Evening all! So my last little mini is a Stonehaven Miniatures Firbolg Druid (at least I think she's a druid) that was digitally sculpted by Mike Evans and is one of the miniatures available in the Kickstarter he's got going on right now. If you're into digital printing it might be worth having a look at his Kickstarter. Anyhoos, here she is, and I'm actually pretty glad at how she came out: Normally I don't take so many angles, but with her pose it seems to be worth it. I'm used to the traditional metal Stonehaven which are a little flat, almost always being a single piece of metal, and of course Ral Partha, so her very "unflat" pose made different angles seem worth it. This one also kind of makes me want to tackle the Bones V firbolgs, but will take a while to get around to them I'm guessing. I see a few little spots where I could improve, but overall ended up pretty satisfied with this one. And being she's a Firbolg, she was a larger figure, which probably made it a bit of a relaxing experience! Anyways, if you like Mike Evan's sculpts, go check out his Kickstarter he's running right now. I'm off for a week to go on vacation out in Colorado, but when I get back I'll probably grab another one of these 3D printed sculpts and work on it as well soon. Which another point, I'm going on vacation for a week. Wouldn't it almost be logical and most relaxing if I were to take paints and minis with me to just relax and paint in all the leisure time I'm going to have next week? Just have a feeling that my significant other wouldn't be too pleased with that idea. Maybe not painting for a week will do me some good, no idea.
  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. Butch "Killer" Davis (50094) is a beautiful clean sculpt, good and pulpy without being overdone. He also gave me an excuse to go ahead and complete a boxing/wrestling ring bit of terrain--it had been rattling around in my brain for some years. And now, with a box lid, some nails, some electrical tape, and a few bits of string, the dream has become reality. "I've earned my stripes, and the poor fool in the other corner's gonna be seeing stars!" I knew sculpting a side of beef ribs would be handy more than once. Good training. Click for a turnaround with Price the Trainer (originally a Groundskeeper from Artizan; I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this dude) Price's training style is...eccentric. (Hence the shovel.) Very big on the principle "prepare for everything." As such, he favors outlandish sparring partners with exotic styles. "Larry the Leprechaun," a vicious bareknuckle flyweight, for example. What if your opponent is hard to reach and nimble, a.k.a. 'the Oddjob Problem'? Or what if your opponent uses A CHAIR OH NOOOO! and employs the ropes in bizarre high-flying stunts? It's EL DIABLOOOOOOOOOO! (50035, last seen in the Weird West) Or how about a taller opponent with a bigger off-limit strike zone?! Think fast, Butch! It's La Mujer Increible! (50212, also seen previously) Managed that? Good start. Now let's put you up against a challenge. The brutish man-mountain Mister Hyde! (Modified Clay Golem, 02706)! Taller, stronger, bigger, meaner. Good luck! Oh, these were fun to photograph. Click for extra shots: The ring itself. In retrospect I should have had the string corners wrapping around the inside of the posts, but eh, not bad for 20 minutes and some junk,
  17. In a world where an entire player race seems to have been mostly overlooked throughout the years, Stonehaven Miniatures created a Kickstarter that was oriented mostly for the fine folk, and made a bunch of different gnome characters, male and female, cast in metal. Here are two of them that I've recently finished, a Gnome Paladin and a Gnome Scout: These are some really small miniatures, and as I finally was able to photograph them I could see a few spots that I could probably improve upon them, but being that these are just for fun and enjoyable, I think I'm happy where I am with them. The hair on them is a little bit outside of the natural realm of color, not your typical blonde, black, brown or red. I sent an email to the sculptor Mike Evans and asked him how he imagined his gnomes, with natural color hair or more fantasy colors and he said bright colors, so I kind of followed that idea with these two. I still live in that past of the old D & D description which talked about them having skin the color or wood and either blonde or white hair, but I'm trying to move away from that pretty old concept. I've seen art for gnomes in other newer D&D books and they are certainly more vibrant than before Anyhoos, hope you enjoy them!
  18. 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!
  19. 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:
  20. When Stonehaven started doing their kickstarters, they usually released their version of a troll or two with each one. Since I liked the variety of elves, dwarves, and other smallfolk in the kickstarters i tended to get the completionist so i found myself with a bunch of these, even though resin is not my favorite medium to work with. I did a few and the rest sat... until i needed giants for my Runelord campaign. I needed hill giants and i dont like hill giants as depicted by the typical miniatures for them, but the trolls were cute and they fit the size i was looking for and the legend that hill giants have tails was born. Anyway, here are the latest 2, it brings my total now to 5 hill giant/trolls and one broccoli Ent. the party has faced 3 of them previously and it was a mixed success: they won, but they went looking for a place to heal and rest immediately afterwards! (come to think of it, Stonehaven makes up a rather large part of the party, the Kobold ninja, the grippli paladin, the half-orc barbarian and the dwarven cleric are also Stonehaven sculpts) anyway for your viewing pleasure:
  21. In my first set of finished miniatures in 2021, a selection of heroes from Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 Kickstarter. They were primed at the end of 2020 after a end of year arrival, but painted over the last month or so. The whole of my finished ones: The Orcs: My favorite of the set. They showed her as concept art on Instagram about 3 projects ago, I'm glad to see her in physical form finally. The Goblins: I got a very Nott the Brave vibe from this one: A Kobold with some fancy gear: Some live some day in the way of the froggy guys: Tieflings: A Dragonborn Wizard: Some live some die in the way of this Hobgoblin Guy...wait I used that one already? Darn.
  22. Another fun one from Stonehaven, with some of my favorite rarities: female Goblins and Orcs! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stonehavenmini/stonehaven-adventurers-2020?ref=user_menu Story “Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play.” – Jane Goodall There are doors a hulking orc warrior can bash open in a single blow that would take a party of kobolds a month to chisel through and there are priceless artifacts that a goblin catburglar can swipe without a sound that an army of dwarves would have a great deal of trouble acquiring. Our differences make us strong. With the Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 project, we are creating a variety of adventuring parties. Some will include variations of a single fantasy race, others will be a mix of different fantasy races. The parties will not all include the same number of miniatures becuase of the difference in the cost of production due to size, and not all of the parties will be included in the Core Set. Some are only available as add-ons. The miniatures will be made in the USA. They will be cast in 100% lead free pewter (or polyurethane resin in the case of the dragon) and some assembly will be required. They will be sculpted on the standard 28 mm scale. Slotted round bases will be included with miniatures that are pictured on round bases. And now we present the Core Set: Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Grippli Warrior, Grippli Samurai, Kobold Archer, Half-Dragon Wizard, Pygmy Lizardfolk Rogue Cold Blood Clan! Though they come from disparate backgrounds, these heroes have been bound together by cruel circumstance. Finding themselves aboard a prison vessel bound for the quicksilver mines, they combined their strengths, made their escape, and discovered that they weren't so different after all. (Want another one?Add-on cost: $25) Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Human Hedgemage, Male Human Thief, Male Human Dagger Hobo, Male Half-Elf Fighter, Female Half-Elf Swashbuckler These scavengers follow the great armies, stealing gear, treasure, and other supplies from the casualties of war. They are not above creating a few extra casualties in order to "find" a few more treasures! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25) Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Human Blademaster, Female Human Monk, Male Human Monk, Male Human Bard, Male Human Jester Lord Rhatagon's players travel from town to town, performing for the peasants and generally distracting from the privations of peasant life. Each has their own past that they are running from, but none moreso than Rhatagon himself, who travels with his minstrels seeking to rebuild the honor of his house. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25) Pictured from left to right, top to bottom: Male Goblin Necromancer, Male Goblin Monk, Female Goblin Witch, Male Goblin Warrior (Locked), Female Goblin Rogue, Female Goblin Ranger (Locked) Goblins seldom get the chance to determine their own destinies. They are the pawns of greater powers and are seen as vermin by the "civilized" races. But just as men can surely be evil, goblins can surely be good. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25) Pictured from left to right, top to bottom: Male Tengu Rogue, Male Dwarven Cleric, Male Halfling Trickster, Male Dwarven Guard, Male Tiefling Geomancer The Doublecreek Watch has had its hands full lately with escaped convicts, charlatans, and would-be heroes running around stirring up trouble! It's going to be one zany adventure, culminating in the wacky awakening of ancient horrors! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25) In addition to the Core Set, we've got some other stuff that is only available as add-ons. This is that stuff! Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Orc Fighter, Female Orc Cleric, Female Orc Archer, Male Orc Wizard, Male Orc Warrior The massive mountain Orcs have formed an uneasy alliance with the mountain queen. Orc warriors, once feared and killed on sight, are now commonplace among the caravan guards and mercenary companies that come down from the northern steppes. (Add-on cost: $37) The Mushroom Folk have lived under the dark trees for as long as time has been counted. Mercurial creatures, they can change their form to best suit the needs of the coming day. Although many will prefer to maintain a single form, others will change form each night: from simple form to warrior form, or from spore form to mage form. Each form has its strengths and drawbacks. The Mushroom Folk have interchangeable parts and can be assembled into thousands of different combinations. Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset A (Add-on cost: $25) Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset B (Add-on cost: $25) Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset C (Add-on cost: $25) Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset D (Add-on cost: $25) Mushroom folk unlocked by stretch goals will be added to the Mushroom Folk Set. The Reclining Dragon rests comfortably on your tabletop, awaiting delicious adventurers to walk into its jaws. Or you could barter with it, or whatever, he's pretty chill that way! This dragon is big! It measures 105mm across and will be cast in polyurethane resin. The wings come unattached. (Add-on cost: $25) As we hit these stretch goals, more miniatures will be added to the Core Set, Mushroom Set, and/or made available as add-ons! First up: When we reach $12,000, Cyragnome the gnomish swashbuckler will be added to the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Cyragnome is a fearless fighter with a flair for the dramatic. Many a bandit has had his knees bloodied by Cyragnome's flashing blade! When we reach $14,500 the Male Goblin Warrior will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Goblin warriors are fearless in battle. Often facing much larger foes, they often triumph through a combination of lucky crits and really bad attack rolls from lvl 1 adventurers! When we reach $17,000 the Female Goblin Ranger will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. She will also be available as a $4 add-on. Ricochet the goblin ranger got her nickname by bouncing a bolt off a guard's shield and into another guard's exposed back. Once these goals are reached, we will introduce new ones! Wow! You scrolled so far! Thanks for taking the time you check out our project; you are the best!
  23. Giant Tortoise from Stonehaven Miniatures. I have more of their stuff than any company except Reaper. They are actually running a kickstarter right now (in case anyone is interested).
  24. I painted this guy up for D&D to be my Warlock. Sadly it may be some time before he fills that role again. Photos still look a bit washed out. :( The Base should look like floorboards and they do in person.
