  1. Tor Skullcrusher, dwarven tattooed monk A Thrym Project :: A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend. Started working on character of mine who is a Dwarven Tattooed Monk. As I mentioned, I created him using Hero Forge, downloaded the .STL, and had him printed elsewhere. I enjoy using the interface on Hero Forge so far. I have designed and purchased 3 STLs and 2 minis. Once I received the print, I made a manual adjustment to his skull. An ironic happenstance, given the character's name. Tor, being a dwarf and confident in his skills against ogres was going toe-to-toe with a rather large ogre with a great club. This is not something unusual so far. The party had been exploring an ogre controlled encampment searching for an item and information for a tribe of centaurs nearby. Unfortunately, Tor suffered a critical hit from the Ogre Champion's club and took a lot of damage when he was already near unconsciousness. He effectively had his namesake applied to his own noggin. So I removed a large segment of his skull by the patch to approximate the results of his disfigurement once the party ... eventually ... managed to raise him from the dead. His demeanor and appearance was never pleasing to begin with and now it's even worse. I painted on a primer coat first so I could see where I was removing plastic better. The majority of the work was done with a rounded mini-file as well as a small gouge chisel. I cleaned up the space with a small sanding twig. For a color scheme, his pallid skin is Reaper's Fair Skin. The coat is Army Painter's D&D Vampire Garments with Army Painter D&D Mouldy Wash. I put the wash over his skin and his hand wraps as well. The coat's trim is just the Vampire Garments again. For the tans I used Reaper's Desert Sand, Desert Stone, Desert Tan, and Woodland Brown; or some combination thereof. The eye patch, the lining of the coat and the belt are Army Painter's D&D Wraith Black as well as the tattoos on his right and left forearms and the side of his head. His boots started out as Reaper's Coal Black but I need to reshake the bottle before going back to it. Yes, I know the pics and the paint wash are a little dark, but the next set of pics will be better lit. I am planning on layering his highlights up to brighter points. More work to come soon. Stay Tuned and Safe. Enjoy.
  2. Painted a bunch of Lannisters this week including both soldiers and charactera. Tyrion's sculpt has surprisingly great face and was interesting to paint overall :) (click on images for better quality)
  3. An older miniature I started years ago, but finished recently. I think it was mostly the weapons (shading) and dirty shirt missing. I would say the paint job is average, but I do like the miniature. I decided to go for a simple, but interesting base, featuring a Nolzur's bottle and Thomarillion barrel.
  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. Hi folks, I recently painted up the dark dwarves (and Margara, dwarf shaman) as some duergar. Heavily inspired by Dr. Faust's Painting Clinic duergar streams for the skin. Only one picture, but may take more if there's interest. :)
  6. Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure. It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details. Comments and critiques are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  7. Ok lets talk about this mini. I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far. So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like: And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas: This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating. The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better. I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!
  8. More vintage minis from my childhood. Been soaking a dozen or so in isopropyl for about a week to get the 40 yr old enamel paint off them. With much scrubbing some of them came out pretty clean! Will post as they come along, here's one of my all-time favorites. I remember when I bought him in a little attic hobby shop in Ithaca, NY. Unfortunately I don't remember the packaging. Such a stoic little dude...any ideas?
  9. Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown. I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.
  10. So this is me trying to paint non-metallic metal for the first time. The mini is one of the dwarves from thehnolog's castlecraft line. Since it is my first, I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope I'll get better at this over time. All comments and suggestions regarding NMM are welcome. Thanks for looking!
  11. Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel. It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew? These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job. I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in. I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though. Ideas are welcome! Thanks for looking!
  12. Sandra Garrity makes some of my favorite Dwarves, and the detail on this one stood out. It doesn't show up much in the picture, but there are some Norse Futhark runes on the blade of the sword in blue that only appear if I rotate the figure 45% left or right. Also, I love dwarves in green.
  13. Hey, everyone! I hope you're all doing well. I haven't been very active on here for a while, but I've been painting. I figured that I'd start putting up my backlog of models. I love Dwarves, and this was a really cool model to paint. I'm particularly happy with the NMM, but if I were to change one thing, I would probably alter the tone of the hair and beard a bit so that it doesn't so closely match the armor.
  14. Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share. I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted. It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures. After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures). Anyway I just wanted to share. Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.
  15. It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here. I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back. TMM was used on the metal.
  16. Hello again guys, so recently been a bit inspired to paint some old miniatures, ones that were nice and dark lead. Part of the reason for this is I want to get these painted before they actually disintegrate or get a lot of lead rot, so I'm going to be hopefully keep painting the few ones that I have that are really old, just to get a protective cover of paint on them, and because let's face it, they're basically just cool! So today I've got two dwarves from an old Citadel boxed set, whose name I don't remember but it was probably something like Court of the Dwarf King. Later when I get inspired I'll hunt it down on the Lost Mini Wiki. So they are two dwarves, a dwarf queen and a dwarf wizard/vizier/councilor or something of that nature. Took the photos yesterday afternoon and it was a little cloudy so the back view of the queen is little dark, but everything else worked out pretty well with the dwarf queen, I thought she had like a little mole under her mouth, which is why there is that odd line, because it might have actually just been an irregularity in the cast. Anyhoos, hopefully you guys enjoy these little gems from the past, Games Workshoppe before it was Games Workshoppe. As I find time, I'm going to be painting other great oldies as well, apart from all the Partha stuff I normally paint.
  17. After many many moons, I finally finished painting Captain Long Drong, leader of the Slayer Pirates, from the good old Dogs of War days of Warhammer.
  18. Another quick tabletop paint job completed over the weekend. I think this guy is from KSIV, @TGP told me he is a dwarven hero. I used some basic techniques: basecoat, drybrush, and various washes.
  19. Painted up this cool dwarf. Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  20. Painted this swarthy looking dwarf up for a sorcerer character I'm planning on playing at some point. I'm really happy with how he turned out. My wife actually suggested the shock of white hair on the top of his head, which ended up being my favorite part. Critiques and advice are always welcome, thanks in advance!
  21. Converted from a base of a Bronze Age Miniatures Dwarf, this piece will represent Alora, a Dwarf Bard from the College of Lore, my wife's character for an upcoming D&D campaign. Additional pieces came from the Frostgrave Soldiers II and Wizards II kits, a lute from Mega Minis, and a quill recovered from an old Warhammer Empire Soldiers kit. It's a bit hard to see in the photos, but as her reason for adventuring is to get over writer's block, her only entry in the book is a tribute to Spongebob's infamous essay.
  22. This is a Dwarf Lord Ragmir by Scibor monstrous miniatures, I got this for my nephew awhile back and just finished it. This thing had a lot of good details, and a cool base even if it was a little small, which is no longer an issue since I just mounted him on his stock base and then a metal knockout from an electrical box. Thanks for looking!
  23. This lil guy had been sitting on my shelf for a while. Decided to tint some metallic w blue paint for his armor. Pretty happy how it turned out. As always, feedback is welcome
