The main body is the old "Mage Knight Doom Blade Orc Cyclops" (what a mouthful!)  

The head is the plastic Warhammer Giant, the beard is green stuff with Warhammer Skeleton skulls.

Various kits donated to his trophies.

The chain is modeler's chain, and the fur pauldron is to cover up the giant gap from re-positioning his arm.

 

The hammer was the tricky part, as I didn't have any large enough.  It's actually plastic rod, the tips are Warhammer skeleton spearss, and the icons Warhammer Dwarf shields.  The hammerhead is seven Litko 20mm bases glued together, with 25mm bases capping it off.

Wow, you put a heck of a lot more work into this figure than I originally thought. Kudos on a wonderfully modified and striking figure in the end, very well done and very cool.

Yup. I couldn't have put it any better!

That is a MOST IMPRESSIVE piece. The conversion is BRILLIANT..I love the beard. AND the brushwork, particularly the metals, is EXCELLENT. SPLENDID WORK!

After Maxxev posted shots of his wonderful converted Dwarf crew, I thought I'd follow up with some (admittedly older) shots of my Dwarfettes.  This project originally started when my girlfriend wanted to play an all girl Dwarf warband in Mordheim.  I may have gone a bit overboard (there's even matching Hired Swords that need to be photographed together)

 

Odd colored lighting may be due to a cat butt-sized hole in my lightbox.

      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.

      Apologies that this one isn't Reaper, but I am super stoked with how it turned out and really wanted to share.
       
      I recently started experimenting with glazing, an old and popular technique I have been aware of for years but had never really given much thought to or attempted.  It was like unlocking an ancient magic, I cant believe the difference such a subtle technique has made to my miniatures.  After achieving some promising results on a batch of halflings I recently painted, I decided to experiment some more on a slightly larger model, a 3D printed bust I'd picked up on Ebay (I believe it is by a company called Tytantroll Miniatures).  
       
      Anyway I just wanted to share.  Glazing has been a revelation to me, and it just goes to show that it sometimes pays to step away from your comfort zone and try new things.

      Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.


      It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
      These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.

      I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.


      I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
      Ideas are welcome!
      Thanks for looking!

      Hey, everyone! I hope you're all doing well. I haven't been very active on here for a while, but I've been painting. I figured that I'd start putting up my backlog of models. I love Dwarves, and this was a really cool model to paint. I'm particularly happy with the NMM, but if I were to change one thing, I would probably alter the tone of the hair and beard a bit so that it doesn't so closely match the armor.

      It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here.
       

       
      I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back.  TMM was used on the metal.
