New Grimm Grayrune version

Recommended Posts

Well, he's older, so the beard is longer. More ornamentation in the beard, indicating a higher social standing, probably reflecting a promotion within the church. And I don't want to be indelicate, but he seems to have put on a few pounds, the higher station seems to agree with him.

 

I like the pose, but since he is a cleric the absence of a holy symbol is jarring. He looks like he'd fit in well with the Oathsworn dwarves.

I was just thinking "in the same vein as Oathsworn but nicely restrained". I didn't like the Oathsworn stuff, it was too fussy for my tastes. This new one on the other hand looks lovely.

Congratulations to John Hickman on his first Reaper-produced sculpt!

 

I like this sculpt. The sculpting is crisp and the proportions look well suited to painting.

The open hand looks good, too. I find open hands tough to sculpt, but I imagine that stubby dwarven digits would be more forgiving.

I'll be curious to see it in the round, including the back view (where there isn't a big beard to cover everything) and what is visible under the tabard/poncho along the sides.

 

Welcome, John, to the sculptors' club!

Is that old one a Sandra Garrity? It looks like a Sandra Garrity.

 

I like having different versions of the same character available. It adds interest.

The new version is on my "to buy" list. I do like the old version though. Since the first 6 or 7 miniatures I ever bought were SG sculpts, I have a special love for her work.

Have to say, I'm not so much a fan of the old version, but I really like the new one. The old one just seems too busy around the face and head with the way that his beard and hair is splayed around like a giant, unkempt mane and it turns me off. The new one just seems more simple and clean. I also like that the hammer looks like some historical renderings of Mjölnir rather than a more common sledgehammer look.

      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?

      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.

      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!

      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!

      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.
