Dwarf Pathfinder as DnD Figure

Recommended Posts

I just got back into painting mini's. I had to stop several years ago because school got in the way, and a few personal issues. But now, I have patience, a better hand and understanding, and I'm proud of my first mini especially after such a long absence. Here's my mini. He's for my DnD Eberron Campaign. His name is Skaven, the Dwarf Fighter. He's level two at the moment. But his favorite thing is riding his soldier ant Pete (whom I tamed on a natural roll of twenty with no modifiers), smoking his pipe, and dual welding his warhammer and hand axe. Have a look and tell me what you think.

I would say he's looking pretty good. Perhaps a tad glossy, though that could be the harsh light. And of course he's a tad out of focus in the first couple of pictures.

fo just getting back to it, I would say a job well done.

Hi! Welcome back to the hobby. I think Skaven needs a nice base. And where is Pete? ;)

Well, I can't find a Soldier Ant or any kind of Ant on the Reaper website. I might sculpt him from a mixture of clay and add green stuff for detail. Not sure though, opened to suggestions.

for pete, might i suggest a repainted plastic toy ant? many places will sell tubes of plastic critters and one with insects should include an ant of appropriate size.

Ya know...I never thought of that. It didn't occur to me at all. Thanks for that! Much appreciated.

love the ant background. Nicely played.

That's actually his steed. I hope to find either another one, or one that's a bit bigger then him, re-mod either this one or get a new one and mount him on it. But thanks for the comment, much appreciated.

The first two are merely scale to ratio pictures. Comparing sizes between the dragon, its hatchlings, the dwarfs mount and the actual dwarf. The ant I found was right, but I wanted him mounted on it, riding it like a horse. And it was too small. So, I found one of my other mini's, converted the mechanical dragonfly, pinned the legs in and now its an ant. With a few things to convert, snip away, a few things of paint, it'll look like the thing.

      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.

      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 :)

      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.

      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. :)
