  1. My exchange partner for the 2015 Fall Exchange was Tarsemina. Steampunk was the first thing on her list, and something I quite like myself, so from there it was just a matter of picking a Reaper fig that spoke to me. This figure is awesome, although she needs a real name, something besides, "Mad Scientist (female)" . As a proper mad scientist on the dangerous streets of London (I've been readying the background book for Infamy lately...) I thought she needs some companions. The dog is an Infernium Hound from West Wind's Empire of the Dead line. And her adorable "porter" is Stonehaven's Scrapbot (one of my favorite figs, which may be why I have so many...). The base is a 50mm cobblestone resin base, also from West Wind's EotD line.
  2. There's no major theme between this set, other than that they'd make one strange adventuring party. First off we have the LATEST version of Ajaxxus Skiotho, Tiefling Barbarian. I think he's been re-done more times than I've actually played him:
  3. My son wanted to play a titan mauler barbarian in our ongoing pathfinder campaign. So with my Stonehaven minis fresh in hand I found one that was about perfect, except for the weapon... So with a little modification this is what I produced. I enjoyed working on this mini and I like the mini itself. The sculptor does wonderful faces and the pose, while a little more display than I would like, is very appropriate for the mini. So without further display, here is Grok Gockamuc, Titan mauler. Comments and critique are always welcome. <*edit to add challenge tag*>
  4. Also recently completed are a group straight out of the swamp. To start, some group shots, which nicely show how darn tiny the Stonehaven Grippli and Hengoyokai are.
  5. Part of the Stonehaven Half-Orc Kickstarter were these interesting adjuncts, a lion-centaur and two hengeyokai. The hengeyokai seem to be some sort of Japanese-derived shapeshifters, but they are sculpted as tiny bird creatures, and I do mean tiny. At the moment all I have done is prepped them. They have had the flash cleaned (not much there; these are good castings), the centaur glued to a base, primed white and washed first with Burnt Umber and then with a transparent purple mixed from Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta. The purple might still be a tad wet on the lion centaur. How tiny are the hengeyokai? This tiny:
  6. Part of the Stonehaven Half-Orc Kickstarter were these lovely Tengu, or Japanese bird-goblins. I am in a game with many bird people, including a PC, so there's a real use for these. There's a little mystic, dwarf-sized, and two warriors, a male and a female, more human sized. They have a lot of gorgeous detail. At this point I've prepped them, removed flash, glued them to bases, primed white, and washed them, first with straight Burnt Umber, then with a bright deep purple mixed from Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta. The purple isn't quite dry in a few places (like under their feet) and looks shinier and more opaque than it actually is. I next used a technique of mixing in warm yellow-white highlights to a very wet wash of purple shadow color to produce a monochrome toned effect. The highlight color is a sort of opaque warm pale cream-banana yellow-white out of Yellow Oxide (= Mars Yellow = Yellow Ochre = Yellow Iron Oxide = Reaper's "Palomino Gold") and Titanium White, not thinned down at all. As I said on the Half-Orc thread, you have to work fast to do this in acrylics. The highlight / blending brush needs to be cleaned frequently. It's really more of an oil technique. But if you can manage it, you can get really nicely blended colors. The thing that makes it work is to use a totally transparent shadow color and a reasonably opaque highlight color which are different, possibly even opposite colors. Also, keep it light and fast. At the moment, using a bright purple and a creamy yellow, they are basically grisaille (I haven't done the mystic yet).
  7. Clearing my 'Shelf of Shame' of some half-finished stuff:- Stonehavens Priestess and Brawler Gnomes. Nothing special with these two, apart from the Priestess being a partially successful attempt at doing blonde hair that was different from my usual 'dirty blonde', but I think I did a decent job on them. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  8. This was my Pathfinder Society character for the friday night Pahfinder special at Gencon He was a tengu Oracle named Mojie Blackfeathers. He seemd like he was photographing well but he was a deceptive little elfhole as tengu tend to be and just didn't want to make certain details that I was proud of stand out. I may attempt some better photos tomorrow. Still figuring out my lighting. Edit: Sorry uploader was being dumb.
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/stonehaven-peacekeepers-oath That was fast! It looks like Stonehaven is finally Kickstarting their oft-threatened wargame, including options for all their previously released miniatures!
  10. Stonehaven half orc warrior... The shield obscured too much so I decided to leave it off.
  11. Two days ago I got my much anticipated reward from the Stonehaven Half-Orc Adventurers kickstarter. I'm not loaded with cash, so I chose the cheaper "Party of Five" option, with one add-on. (I chose the Spellblade, Bard, Half-Dragon Duelist, Barbarian, Nobleman, & the Halfling-sized Wizard). It's been a while since I actually complete a miniature, and I'm about to start a personal challenge where I paint a mini a day for a month so I thought I'd get a little practice in to knock some of the rust off my brush skills. I started with the Spellblade since I like the look of her, & in the new edition of D&D the Half-Orc/Eldritch Knight combo would be a pretty potent combination. I think she turned out pretty well. The crimson paint on the coat is a little thick since I'd originally started painting it blue to look kinda like Master Holt from Warmachine, but I realized it might muddle the greenish skin-tone, so I opted for a more complimentary color. I considered making the sword glow, but I wanted to get it done quickly. Looking at it now I think I could stand for a bit more highlight on the khaki coat since it reads a little flat to me. Something to do later tonight I suppose. ~Muninn
  12. So this is my newest player character, Storm the dwarven druid. She has her trusty black bear animal companion, Tempest at her side. The dwarf is from Stonehaven dwarves, but the bear is from Bones KS 2! :D
  13. Maglok

    Ice witch

    Painted this for my Reign of Winter campaign. Tried going with a skin hue that is different then my usual. Worked out pretty ok to me.
  14. This is my spring exchange for EvilHalfling. He asked for a diorama piece using some advanced basing techniques. So after some soul searching (that would be digging through my drawers of miniatures looking for that perfect one.) I found it in Kyrie the Barbarian. I have a couple of copies and have been looking for an excuse to paint her. Then Bones II showed up and I decided to let the forest dragon and the swamp dragon play with her. During the last moments of development the pixie and the fox snuck into the picture to watch the show! I tried a lot of new things in this little scene: Tattoos on the barbarian, the whole river thing, and then the adventure of shipping a very fragile set of trees. The water is magic water effects and is pretty unique in the fake waters in that it will create actual depth instead of drying to a thin film. hope everyone enjoys the piece. I know I had a lot of fun creating it!
  15. The Gnome Bard by Stonehaven, not sure why she's singing to a bush, she just is. Something simple I've painted up between other things, but I'm rather pleased with how she came out. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  16. Well, I've not been as active a painter as I would have liked, but I've managed to get two pieces done in March. The first, Grimm Grayrune, dwarf priest. I love this sculpt, it is so perfect for the subject. I removed his broccoli base, and mounted him on a Secret Weapons resin base which had some mystical runes carved in it. Seemed appropriate. I am not satisfied with the OSL effect I was going for from the runes, making them look to be glowing, but I am not displeased either. I really am happy with how the rest came out, though I still need to work more on my blending. And then there is this Stonehaven Grippli archer. Wow is he small. I had a lot of fun with this guy, but he's not the easiest thing to paint by any stretch. Still, I had almost as much fun making his tree. As always comments and constructive criticism eagerly accepted.
  17. I seem to be getting carried away with applying a rusted paint job to my miniatures: Unprimed and poorly pinned through feet. Brush on Primer plus a layer of Brown Liner and then some Ancient Bronze. The full treatment of Ancient Bronze/Lava Orange/Bloodstain Red/Shadowed Steel/Sun Yellow in various layers multiple times for most of them. The front looks way less chalky and bloodstained than the pic suggests (looks much more like the back shot. That is what I get for taking a pic in dim lighting with a flash. This is less than an hour's worth of work, including mold line removal and priming, but not counting pinning.
  18. This little guy was my entry in the Fantasy Single Category at OrcCon this past weekend. He was a fun one to paint and I was very happy with him. One main thing that I wish I had been able to do better was the browns. The border on the cloth, the spear, and the scabbard all were difficult to do any sort of shading and highlighting that would have any impact. I did try some freehand wood grain on the spear but it did not look good so I went with something else. This was my first time doing resin water and I am very happy with how it turned out. The mold did leak a little and it was not level but the resin hardened completely and is clear. I am my toughest critic so I was hoping he would do well but was not expecting much, especially after seeing the other entries. So I was very surprised to find out he won his category and blown away when he got Best in Show. I am still working on my light set up for the pictures. Usually they are too dark, now I think they are too bright but I have a plan for next time. Any input would be appreciated.
  19. This is going to be my first big project of the year and will most likely be my only entry in the painting competition at OrcCon in February. I would do at least one other but I need to focus on the entries I have planned for ReaperCon. So I present to you the gnome knight mounted on a wolf from Stonehaven. I grabbed this little guy from the Box of Goodwill and have been itching to painted him. He has been primed and I have done a black base for all the metal as well as the wolf's fur. The eyes are done, except for possible color on the wolf's. The gnome's came out a lot better then I expected as they had little definition to them. Now I plan to be ambitious with the base. I am using a piece of burl wood that my dad cut up for me. I plan on painting it up as a rocky cliff with a pond at the base and a small waterfall. So I am going to have to make wood look like rock and attempt using resin for the first time. Any tips?
  20. I recently started playing a game of 2nd Edition D&D with some friends (not my normal gaming group). As it's my first time playing 2nd Ed. in 15 years, I thought I'd go with something easy. Then I realized no one else wanted to play a mage. So instead I'm playing a Gnome Illusionist. What a great excuse to paint another Gnome!! (and quickly, with his AC of 8 and 5 HP he may not last long). So I present Flizbit von Klaus, Illusionist Extrordinaire! I'd planned to grab a background and take some nicer shots, but forgot and now he's quite shiny with wet sealer (we play tomorrow) so these will have to do. He was a blast to paint (I loves me some Stonehaven Gnomes!) and quick. I did him in 3 sessions, maybe 5-6 hours total, while giving my wife lots of guidance on painting her paladin (77063: Duke Gerard)). I don't usually use a lot of bright colours either, but he really wanted them.
  21. The Breach The last year has had its ups and down for the Gnomes of the Stonehavens. The Wyrmgear Initiative (as it has become know) has been very successful, and Wyrmgear and his later created brethren rule the skies. This has kept the Goblinoid hordes in check. On the down side, repeated attempts at formal alliances with the Dwarves (be they the nearby Dwarves of Stonehaven, the distant Scrunts of the territory of Olley, or the mighty clans of the Oathsworn Dwarves) have thus far lead to little more than non-aggression pacts. But unknown to the Gnomes, the Goblins have been much more successful in finding allies. For deep within Goblin lands they have uncovered an ancient Maul of Legend, known as Stonecrusher. Legends say it was forged and wielded long ago by a Demon Prince in his war against Hirst the Builder. The Goblins have gifted this great weapon to Skorg Ironskull, King of the Fire Giants. In return Skorg has mobilized the might of Thulgarast to lay waste these puny Gnomes. And he has brought with him his ally Kyra, riding the mighty Lavarath, to take back the skies. The plan is simple, but effective. The Goblin army has attacked a key village near the Gnomish stronghold of Blackstone. The Gnomish air forces have quickly mobilized to engage the Goblins. Which leaves the stronghold itself vulnerable to attack, especially to an attack that can blast straight through the walls… ************************************************************************************* Skorg despises the waiting. But still, the Goblins’ plan is surprisingly clever. They will need to be watched more closely… At last, the cursed winged mechanical monstrosities are away. Time to alter the plan. “Vanja, hold the troops here. I shall go with just Fomohr and Drokos. If this weapon works as the legends say we will be more than enough to rid this hill of its pathetic vermin,†With that Skorg strode from cover, casually marching towards the walls of Blackstone. Fomohr, as always, quickly took the lead, placing himself between any danger and his King. Drokos strode beside his King, thoughtfully weighing the massive maul in his hands. A sudden cry could be heard from the walls as they were spotted, followed by a strange, alien whine. Moments later a blast of searing light flashes past Skorg, detonating a trough in the ground well behind him. “Blasted Gnomes and their infernal creations!â€, he snarls, and waves his sword forward in a planned gesture. As the three Fire Giants break into a jog, Kyra and Lavarath streak into view. The strange device on the battlements fires off several haphazard blasts as its crew tries to get a bearing on the mighty dragon, to no avail. Lavarath crashes to a stop atop the tower, smashing and mangling the device and its crew. Now at the wall, Drokos glances at his King once then steps forward. Hefting the might maul, he delivers a single swing with all his might. The wall in front of him vanishes, blown into the keep with incredible force. Fomohr immediately charges through the breach. Skorg can’t help but laugh, this power the Goblins have freely given…. “Bring it all down, Drokos!†He commands, as he charges forward. And I'd like to thank my wife for taking time out of a very busy day (our guests should be here any minute....) to take these wonderful pictures. They are much better than the ones I took on my phone...
  22. Stonehavens Terrain Kit Kickstarter is now live. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/pop-up-miniature-terrain-kit It's a little different as it's for "pop up" style terrain.
  23. Yes, another Gnome. Who doesn't need more Gnomes?? This guy I'm using for my character in 2nd Ed. campaign I'll be playing with some friends. Should be an interesting contrast with the 5th Ed. campaign I'm running with a different group of friends. It will also be my wife's first time playing D&D at all (she's playing a paladin, and will be painting up 77063: Duke Gerard btw). Here's a quick pic of him straight out of the packaging. I've since cleaned him up and given him a good scrub.
  24. I'd posted a few pics in my combined WIP as I was figuring things out, but now that I'm (finally) gearing up to really start working on my diorama for the 2014 Year of the Giants contest, I guess it's time to start a new WIP. The idea I'm working with for this diorama is set in the same (loosely defined) world as my Wyrmgear diorama from last year. A slightly steampunky fantasy world. So far we have seen the Gnomes (specifically the Stonehaven ones) as a faction, obviously technologically advanced enough to create automatons and even Wyrmgear. Now we get to see one of the forces they must battle, Fire Giants and their allies. So, my idea is a Gnomish fortress being breached by what is likely the vanguard of a much larger army (perhaps lesser giants, orcs, things like that). 4 (or maybe 3, not sure yet) Fire Giants, have smashed through the wall (the Fire Giant in the back will have his sword swapped for a large, obviously magical maul/hammer) while Kyra and Lavarath cleared the tower of any defenders. There will likely be a few Gnomish casualties and possibly some shattered steampunky weapons to help tie it all together. This pic is a mock up of what I think needs to be there. I'm trying to plan out a base size so I can get something cut and start doing the actual block assembly and other terrain planning. I've taped off what I think will work as a base, 12x14 inches. The walls will of course extend to the edges of the diorama. The walls, where damaged, will be filled with gravel and stone, and where undamaged will have stone across the top and crenelations and such. The tower will likely have an arch passing through from the wall top or something similar and maybe some arrow slots. I'm undecided if the interior of the keep will be flagstones or dirt. The exterior will be dirt, grass, possibly with the edge of a moat or something showing. Maybe raise the whole thing on 2 inches of Styrofoam to allow some variable terrain....hmm, I like that. Will help with craters too.... Anyway, thoughts, suggestions, etc are always welcome and appreciated. Looks like I'm going to be busy over the next 4 months...
  25. Another quick table top job for a friend's Christmas present.
