You know what sort of year it’s been when you think to yourself that you played a game “recently”, only to find that it was last October.
So, in a “recent” game of Dragon Rampant, I was using a scenario from the related game Lion Rampant which called for three “wagon” markers for one side to be escorting. I had two 1/72 scale plastic wagons or carts at the time, so I threw in a noblewoman (an old Airfix mounted Maid Marion figure) as a third element to be escorted. Afterward, I pulled some farm animals out of the plastics collection and decide to add some flock/herd bases to the baggage train.
However, pandemic, etc...I finally got the sheep painted yesterday, deciding at the last minute (earlier this week) that they would look better with someone to keep an eye on them. The shepherd is another of the ubiquitous Robin Hood set figures. While I was at the desk and working, I also finished up an addition to the NPC/civilian/camp follower collection. This figure came from the Strelets/Linear-B Roman Transport set, and didn’t look particularly Roman, so she gets added into the general 1/72 fantasy pool.
Sir Forescale would pass as an ogre with these guys.
Anyway, it felt good to get something done, even small...
The way of the Dawi-kin
A goal of Acquiring every single Reaper Dwarf and painting em up.
Master check list has been put together that will be updated with time.
Any duplicate model will receive conversion using Reaper weapons.
I like my check-off lists and achievement progress icons.
Green box indicates the mini is owned, the picture next to model indicates that is has been painted.
Reaper, Dwarf Mancatcher, sku: 14463
Made this guy a Noblemen with bright colored clothes and golden glave.
Reaper, King Axehelm of Kragmarr, 77478
Wanted a dirty worn look on this dwarf kind, and a high contrast in color scheme of white and red.
Made a mistake on this one using wrong type of shade that made everything glossy, had to layer addition shades of different brand to take out the gloss. turned out a bit darker than planned.
Reaper, Dwarven Brewmeister, 02559
Quite a strait forward model to paint.
Did not want crazy colors for this guy.
A variation of royal blue color scheme with gold patterns and closed eye lids could be interesting.
The rest of the gang. Those mugs man, are like half the size of that poor little barrel.
Wanted grouped colors of tans and browns to create tonal contrast instead of use of intense colors.
These are quite easy to paint, good models.
Reaper, Hagar, Dwarven Hero, 77482
Wanted to make Hagar and Durgam Deepmug into a two brother team of green-beards.
Just leather, iron, and green.
Reaper, Durgam Deepmug Dwarf Hero, 77400
The green-beard brother of Hagar.
Rangers both, with green rune weapons
Reaper, Dwarf Royal Weapomaster, 77574
There is nothing royal about this malicious looking guy.
Went for high contrast red/white.
I was thinking of possible conversions, I don't know, this is not the most interesting dwarf model they have for that.
Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011
Gave him axe and a shield from reaper Weapon pack III
Usually I do not go for bright colors, yet this warrior needed some frost armor! (too much terreria of late)
Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011
The original model with a bit older paint job, or battle dirt paint job ;)
But with TrueBlood effect paint from GreenStuff
Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073
This is one of the cooler looking models, even though was a bit hard to paint.
Older paint job, dirty, battle weathered.
Went with Conan the Barbarian face paint.
Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073
Same model with Weapon Pack III axe upgrade.
Most recent paint job, cleaner with different paint scheme of bronze and green.
Welcome to our second Kickstarter campaign!
We are 3DBreed Miniatures and after our first successful kickstarter campaign '1775 Join or Die' , we are happy to present 'Sky Shards: The Arrival', a collection of 6mm scale mecha models and terrain objects, created to be printed at home in resin printers such Anycubic Photon or Elegoo Mars, or in FDM printers such as Ender 3 or Prusa.
** We remind you that this Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own 3D printer, such as Anycubic Photon or Ender 3. These are not physical models **
The models have been designed in pieces to allow an easy printing and removal process of the supports. They are ideal to be adapted to any RPG or Wargame.
The pledge consists of 4 different factions with their unique style. Each faction has 2 Heavy mechs (40-70mm high), 5 Medium Mechs (30-40mm high) and 5 Light Mechs (20-30mm high). Besides, a basic terrain objects' pack is included in the pledge, along with 6mm scale infantry units, an APC vehicle, a tank and a generic excavator to extract the valuable 'Sky Shards'.
In 3DBreed Miniatures we firmly believe that the best way to show the confidence in our work is to give you the opportunity to download the THOR'S HAMMER squadron's free 3D printing files to make a printing test. They will give you a good idea of a finished miniature in your hand.
DOWNLOAD THOR'S HAMMER SQUADRON
'Sky Shards: The arrival' has just a pledge of 40€ and with it, you'll get all the miniatures and terrain objects of the basic set and all the stretch goals' aditional content that we manage to unlock:
"...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
-J. R. R. Tolkien
Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them!
We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls.
From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves.
From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both?
From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.
At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!
Well, awhile ago I started making some terrain for my Frostgrave Dark Alchemy solo mini campaign. Longish story....Then squirrels happened. I then decided not to wait to finish my terrain, and just go with what I had made and not painted. I'll nether confirm nor deny that I also used Lincoln Logs to make wall to fill out that first board (and there are no picture left to prove it). That round went well. I then managed to finish up building the hirst arts wizard tower in a ruined form. Next round went way worse... TPK. You take 4 character and your wizard or apprentice. They all got taken out by a series of bad dice rolls. The bad dice roll continued and I failed all my survival rolls for the characters in that mission. Well I decided I really wanted to finish this piece so here is a thread showing the before painting it.
Here is some shots of built with my now deceased WIzard, who is roughly the same size as Sir Forscale.
