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!

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.

      Hello everyone, today is a Pathfinder day. I did my best to paint it as faithfully as possible respecting the original artwork colors. This is the metal version 60136, Aglanda the herald of Razmir sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It's also available in Bones plastic under sku: 89040.

      Tor Skullcrusher,
      dwarven tattooed monk
      A Custom Miniature developed on Hero Forge and 3D printed by a friend
      As mentioned in the Work In Progress, this is a character of mine from an existing campaign.  The character has died once and was raised from the dead suffering a drop in his already low Charisma score as a result.  His caved-in skull didn't heal properly and the concussion and time in limbo have left him "off" personality wise.
      So, with damaged head and tattoos adorning his arms and the opposite side of his skull, I present the embodiment of his family surname, Tor Skullcrusher. 




      These were taken with a single strip light source so I may come back to this and take some more pics with two background lights.
      As always, feel free to leave notes and praise as warranted.  
      Thanks for looking.
      Enjoy and Stay safe.

      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 :)
