All My Friends Know The Low Rider

Recommended Posts

Thanks! I've since touched up the base a with a some more water effects giving the water more movement. 1st attempt at making water and I've learned some things by not following my gut and going with the instructions included with the stuff. Instructions were more if you wanted something simple on a train board.

 

I wanted him to look like he was a bit dirty from traveling through the woods. He was part of my 1st mini purchases back around February, took me a while to get to him and he may have taken the longest so far for me to paint. He was exhausting and I may have bit off more than I was able to chew with him. I think I am going to stick to smaller stuff for a while.

I have recently decided to go back,  touch up and take better pics of some of my previous painted Reaper minis. I only have a few and I hope people don't mind a bump from me each time I refinish one.

I left an old pic in to give a comparison. 

Thorvald riding the bear is one of my favorite models...period and I really thought he deserved a second chance show off.

 

I gave this guy a quick bit of highlighting and added some needed movement to the water.

I can still see more areas to improve on (I am sure it will always be that way with most models), but without completely repainting the guy, I am calling this one done....for now. :)

      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.
