  1. 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. 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.
  2. "Fond of bright colors, chiefly green and yellow," as Tolkien described his hobbits. Stonehaven does some incredibly character-rich sculpts, and this is one such. This lady is full of vim, vigor, optimism, and a can-do attitude! I imagine her as maybe the irrepressible kid sister of a grown adventurer, who has heard stories of adventure and wants to be a part of things. (Big sister played by Daschelle, 44009 )
  3. What crew is complete without a Meat Man? Miniature is from The Assault Groups Imperial Halflings.
  4. Inarah

    44037 Bergamot

    Playing with reds. Contrast glaze over bright red, with a brown wash.
  5. My friend got good pictures of this one. I did her as a fairly fast paint for a friend, as his character's mother Millicent Pillswallop (who they really should go check on in the next eight days... she got caught in an explosion in the city). I kinda went with a "Too lazy to blend, so cross-hatch and texture it instead!" idea on the cloth.
  6. The two minis from the bones IV core set just look like they want to battle, so I made them ;) Griffin, Wyvern ... Bones IV core set Hiding Halfling ... TTCombat Hill ... XPS
  7. Loved painting this little chap from Dreadmere. Had ideas of painting him up as a villain or grim ranger but went back to a traditional bright Halfling pallette.
  8. Meet Ernie Baggage! Leader of the Red Cloaks: a mercenary band who travel from town to town seeking adventure and glory! Or they are just murder hobos. Time will tell. The 07004: Dungeon Dwellers: Stitch Thimbletoe, Halfling Thief painted in Autumn palette with NMM and Texture/Freehand. Even comes with the chest of gold! Keep both eyes on this guy.
  9. Did a fair bit of free hand with this. Really enjoyable process. Quite happy with how it turned out.
  10. Back from Reapercon and working on the little's PC for our inconsistent dnd game. She's super tiny but I really like the sculpt. Gripes about plastic, and the mould quality though. It's a wizkids preprimed number. I wish they did these in metal. She's coming along nicely. Her skins are the rosy skin triad with some of the fair skins mixed in. Hair is intense brown, vmc orange brown pumpkin orange and then pumpkin orange and rosy highlight, then tiny bits of rosy highlight. Her eyes are I think leaf green, and tiny. Kiddo is requesting some purple socks with stripes so that is the next thing. Enjoy:).
  11. I painted Stonehaven’s Halfling Berserker to use as my gnome barbarian D&D character. It was a fairly quick paint job for me, only a few hours. I had finished everything but the metallics a few months ago and kept forgetting to finish her up.
  12. Here's another post. Hellakin languished on my shelf of shame for about 5 years. He was intended as an entry into a forum contest for painting "little people." Life got in the way. I recently decided to finish him, in a little bit of a rushed fashion. He sat and sat at the basecoat stage. I struggled with figuring out how to do his cloak black. I am not too happy with it. It reads dark blue, as I'm trying to paint black without cycling up through gray, as you'll see here: I'm more pleased with the gold nmm on the knife than the steel. But, I tried to really suggest he's in a dark area by the shadowed part of the blade remaining nearly black. Here are some more shots of him. I'm pretty pleased with the hair color and face: He's got a very intense stare. The eyebrows didn't please me very much. The base is a "hollow" round base with a circle of cobblestone patterned sheet styrene from a model railroad supply hobby shop that I painted up to give him a feeling of being in a dungeon. If I wanted to spend more time on him, I'd paint his toenails and fiddle more with the knife. I originally had a thought to try to paint shadows and light on the base to make it seem like he's sneaking up on someone to backstab from the shadows. I gave up on that ;) Overall, he fills a missing niche among my painted figures of an iconic halfling rogue. C&C Welcome.
  13. My most recently complete project is the lovely ladies of Oathsworn Miniature's "Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3" Kickstarter. As always, they are a joy to paint. They have nice, bold details but without being overwrought. They definitely look like a bunch of starting adventurers! The theme this time was more exotic races, notably a bunch from "Volo's Guide to Monsters" The ladies ascend the mountain: The Kitsune. She could be a lightly armored Fighter, a Rogue, or a Ranger. The Kenku (or Tengu) Shaman. Or Wizard. Or Sorcerer. Or whatever. She's got a bone to pick with you! The Kenku or Tengu Rogue. I went with oranges for them to continue my previous work on the Bones Tengu...which were also dressed in orange to match the official D&D pre-paints. The Dragonborn, could be a Fighter or Paladin. The decision to make her red was regrettable...with that pointy face and dreads, I kept thinking of Ugandan Warrior Knuckles. Stupid memes getting in the way! Tabaxi or Catfolk. I tried to go with more of a Ranger color scheme than the intended Rogue. The other Tabaxi/Catfolk from the set. I liked the intent of this sculpt...she could be a spellcaster, a Monk, or a Bard! The Halfling Knight. Her mount was painted after my own painting gremlin, Hershey. He would be much smaller to scale, though. The Tiefling Paladin. I really like the pose of this one, though I questioned the hooves, as 4E and 5E Tieflings of this design have human feet. I may wind up greenstuffing her into boots at some point. The Firbolg Druid. As far as I know, this is the only miniature of a 5E style Firbolg. The Minotaur Swashbuckler. I bet you were expecting a cow joke here. The terrain:
  14. After converting Ingrid to better match the character she's going to represent (giving her a bow and rapier), last night I got to painting. I started with thinned down brown liner, then went straight to the eyes with Linen White. Surf Aqua was used for her irises, and brown liner for the pupil. I painted her flesh with a 2:1 Warrior Flesh: Linen White mix. Her hair is Blond Shadow with highlights of Tanned Leather. Her lower lip is a 1:1 blend of her flesh tone with Old West Rose. The armor, gloves, boots were painted with a thinned Rich Leather. The bow and scabbard are painted with a mix of Brown Liner and Rich Leather. Her cloak was painted with Mountain Stone, and then washed with a 1:2:2 mix of Grey Liner: Mountain Stone: Flow Improver. Because I want to bring her to game on Wednesday, and don’t think I’ll get any more time to work on her between now and then, I picked out the end of the scabbard and the tips of the bow with Dragon Bronze, and gave the base a quick wet brush of Redstone Shadow. Not bad for a night's work...
  15. I recently got in the latest "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter from Oathsworn Miniatures. I decided to get started on them and take (yet another) break from my in progress Rising Sun minis. As \always, they were nice, clean casts with lots of detail, but nothing over-wrought...which makes sense for low-level adventurers! They're such a joy to paint.
  16. One of my favourite range of figures ever was Citadel's 1980's licensed "Lord Of The Rings" minis. I have finally decided to get all the miniatures I own painted up (over time) & try to acquire the ones which are missing from my collection (& paint them up too!). Here is the first completed mini - Frodo. He is actually part of a blister of 3 minis which also includes Strider & Gandalf, I will be painting those 2 sometime at a later date. This was also an opportunity for me to use my newly acquired "Flockbox" to create a more lush realistic upstanding static grass effect on the base, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for looking!
  17. Good morning all, so here's a Halfling rogue sculpted by Jim Johnson that was put out by Kenzer and Co., and rereleased by Ral Partha recently. A nice little Hackmaster figure, enjoy him quite a lot, because he's pretty straight forward, kind of iconic-looking Halfling thief. And I've been doing so many greens and such, it was a departure from my woodsy colors, so went for a cloak the color of the Dutch flag and some purple pants. Enjoy!
  18. Hope I'm in the right forum - apologies if not. I am looking for a mini that would have either an empty hand, or a gun, but is a gnome or halfling in fantasy style. Basically I'm looking to play a kinda crossover. Or if someone can suggest a mini to use and another to grab the gun off maybe? Don't really want 'western' style, or sci fi, which is making it a bit tough.
  19. In a recent one-day run through Ravenloft, I played a halfling paladin who rode a war dog. He was so fun to play that I have to make minis for them. Here is the start of Garr.
  20. The newest character in my AD&D campaign is Oswalt Tenpenny, a halfling fighter-thief. So, I thought I'd better hunt out a halfling figure and paint it up. This is a plastic Bones miniature, but I have no idea what the SKU is. As it turns out, Steve (the player) already has a halfling figure of his own, but never mind. I'm sure this one will come in handy one day.
  21. Who doesn't love Halflings in Mittens? Wait, that's not the name of the set? Why not? Alright, it turns out they're actually "The Winter Adventurers" from a recent Midlam Miniatures Kickstarter. As always, Midlam delivers nice old-school designs with newer sculpting methods and details. I think quite highly of the company. The Halflings in Mittens: Wizards and their apprentices: The Dwarfette: A human scout. I tried to go with an Inuit look for her. Every party has that guy:
  22. Another one painted for the Summer Exchange.
  23. Painted this one up for the Summer Exchange but kept forgetting to post photos. Love this little guy, lots of character in such a small sculpt.
  24. So I haven't painted too many Reapers in recent years and the two I've painted have recently for other people (did a Bones Mummy for my wife a few weeks back). I finished painting Hellakin Goregutter for a friend who's going to use him for a campaign he's playing in. Fun miniature to paint! At first I was worried about the extended arm that came separately, but glued it into the shoulder and filled in a little bit of space with Green Putty, and life was good. Anyways, here is how he turned out. He's a little shiny because I put more sealant than usual, three coats, because he's actually going to be seeing some game time. And as per usual, struggled a tad with the metal, but when have I note struggled with it?
  25. Presenting Roberto Vendetta, part of the Halfling crime family faction from the (possibly defunct) game Wolsung by Micro Arts Studio. Extremely pleased with how this little guy turned out, I honestly think he's one of my best paint jobs to date. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
