Next up are a pair of Kitsune from Stonehaven.  (if anyone can't tell I like their minis) :D

 

These are rather flat without some serious manipulation of the tails and, in the females case, the arms too.  But overall they came out pretty good.  Tried for a classic starfox coloration on the male and a classic anime on the female.  Not sure if I got it but I like how both came out.  Once again Happy Seppuku base stamps to the for on the bases.  Riverbed on the female and Urban Jungle on the male. 

 

Enjoy!

      Nearly two years after I started a thread for showing off the figures of my Pathfinder Society characters, I present the second figure.
      (For that thread about the first character, click here: link.)
       
      This is Sister Ayano, a kitsune archer (level 8 now: paladin 5 of Shelyn / zen-archer monk 3).
      I did some extensive conversion to the elf archer Caerwynn, from the Warlord line.
       
      Here is the finished Ayano:

       
      You can see the Work-in-Progress thread for her here: link.
       
      You may have noticed the concept art for two kitsune figures in the "Eastern Legends" stretch-goal from the recent Bones III Kickstarter.  I'll be sculpting those two.  So if you like the way Ayano the kitsune looks and you wish Reaper made others figures like her ... well, you're in luck (sort of).
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      When Stonehaven started doing their kickstarters, they usually released their version of a troll or two with each one.  Since I liked the variety of elves, dwarves, and other smallfolk in the kickstarters i tended to get the completionist so i found myself with a bunch of these, even though resin is not my favorite medium to work with.  I did a few and the rest sat... until i needed giants for my Runelord campaign.  I needed hill giants and i dont like hill giants as depicted by the typical miniatures for them, but the trolls were cute and they fit the size i was looking for and the legend that hill giants have tails was born.  
       
      Anyway, here are the latest 2, it brings my total now to 5 hill giant/trolls and one broccoli Ent.  the party has faced 3 of them previously and it was a mixed success:  they won, but they went looking for a place to heal and rest immediately afterwards!  (come to think of it, Stonehaven makes up a rather large part of the party, the Kobold ninja, the grippli paladin, the half-orc barbarian and the dwarven cleric are also Stonehaven sculpts)
       
      anyway for your viewing pleasure:

      I've never taken so long, after starting to paint a miniature, to finish it.
      She is Svetlana, the Frost Giant Princess.  The metal version is DHL 3431; in Bones, she's 77107.
      Read below the pics for the backstory of sculpting and painting.
       

       

       

       

       
       
      THE SAGA
       
      I sculpted her in 2009, from this drawing by Wayne Reynolds:

      He designed some other frost giants and the new icy-themed dark elf faction for Reaper around that time.
       
      Werner Klocke had recently sculpted Reaper's fire giant queen, with a clever metal-saving design: a body cast in front-and-back parts that left a hollow center. 
      I stole that idea for the front giant princess.
       
      I took my sculpting kit along on my 3-week bicycle ride from ReaperCon '09 (late May) to Asheville, North Carolina (mid-June). 
      I didn't sculpt much along the ride, but I do remember a day in Monteagle, Tennessee, when the fog was so thick I didn't want to risk being on the road.  I gave my legs a rest that day and spent a few hours sculpting in my hotel room.
      I finished sculpting the figure in late July, and she was released in September.
       
      Some folks on the Reaper Forum debated whether the princess's face was exposed skin or a mask.
      I weighed in here. 
      You can see how different people have painted her over the years, mostly with masks.
      I didn't get around to painting my own version with the bare skin.
       
      I got a metal copy of this figure in late 2009 or early 2010.
       
      May 2010: 1 hour cleaning the figure.
       
      ((wait 1 year 10 months))
       
      March 2012: 4 hours assembling the body (but not the left hand and spear), and using Greenstuff to patch the gaps and adding volume to the back of the hair.
      April 2012: 3 hours doing a primer coat / value-study in White and Black Brush-On Primer.
       
      ((wait 3 years))
       
      April 2015: 5 hours verifying the assembly, attaching the hand, refining the shape of the eyes a bit, setting wires for the extra hair strand & the spear strap (in WAR's sketch but not the stock figure), and then sculpting over the wires.  Thin things like these can make a miniature look more dynamic and realistic because they aren't limited by the considerations for casting.  (I got that advice from Jeremie Bonamont when he was at ReaperCon one year.)
       
      WIP pics then:

       

       
      That evening / night / early morning, I spent another 7 hours in 3 sessions roughing in blended base coats over everything.
      And then I lost interest. 
      She went into the cabinet.
       
      ((wait 5 years 9 months))
      I decided to include the fox in some way. (The fox goes with Feiya the Pathfinder iconic witch, #60048, sculpted by Julie Guthrie.) 
      I occasionally got nebulous ideas for an ice/snow base, but I never sat down to give physical form to these ideas.
       
      Jan-Feb 2021: She called to me again at 1am one night / morning.  I painted until 5:30am.  More painting sessions over the following week, and then basing.  Built the base from rough masses to final shapes -- just start building, and then edit and refine.  Devised the sticks-with-straps elements to fill the front-right area and show the wind.  Added the snow, including drifts and footprints.  Refined the colors, especially the ice-spear and the snow.  Glazed, glazed, glazed.  In all, about 50 hours over the last 3 weeks. 
      And for now, she is finished.
       
       
      I think the sculpt holds up pretty well, though I deviated on several points from WAR's sketch (partly from my own design sense, but mostly from my lack of sculpting skill). 
      If I were sculpting her today, I could do better on some proportions and making the fur and hair more spiky/icy than wavy.
       
      Thanks for reading!
       
      Enjoy!

      In my first set of finished miniatures in 2021, a selection of heroes from Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 Kickstarter.  They were primed at the end of 2020 after a end of year arrival, but painted over the last month or so.

      The whole of my finished ones:


       

      The Orcs:



      My favorite of the set.  They showed her as concept art on Instagram about 3 projects ago, I'm glad to see her in physical form finally.




       

       
       
      The Goblins:


       

       
       

       
       

       
       
      I got a very Nott the Brave vibe from this one:



      A Kobold with some fancy gear:




      Some live some day in the way of the froggy guys:


       

       
       
      Tieflings:


       

       

      A Dragonborn Wizard:


       

      Some live some die in the way of this Hobgoblin Guy...wait I used that one already?  Darn.

      Another fun one from Stonehaven, with some of my favorite rarities: female Goblins and Orcs!

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stonehavenmini/stonehaven-adventurers-2020?ref=user_menu
       
      Story
      “Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play.” – Jane Goodall
      There are doors a hulking orc warrior can bash open in a single blow that would take a party of kobolds a month to chisel through and there are priceless artifacts that a goblin catburglar can swipe without a sound that an army of dwarves would have a great deal of trouble acquiring. Our differences make us strong.
      With the Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 project, we are creating a variety of adventuring parties. Some will include variations of a single fantasy race, others will be a mix of different fantasy races. The parties will not all include the same number of miniatures becuase of the difference in the cost of production due to size, and not all of the parties will be included in the Core Set. Some are only available as add-ons.
      The miniatures will be made in the USA. They will be cast in 100% lead free pewter (or polyurethane resin in the case of the dragon) and some assembly will be required. They will be sculpted on the standard 28 mm scale. Slotted round bases will be included with miniatures that are pictured on round bases.
      And now we present the Core Set:
      Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Grippli Warrior, Grippli Samurai, Kobold Archer,  Half-Dragon Wizard, Pygmy Lizardfolk Rogue
      Cold Blood Clan! Though they come from disparate backgrounds, these heroes have been bound together by cruel circumstance. Finding themselves aboard a prison vessel bound for the quicksilver mines, they combined their strengths, made their escape,  and discovered that they weren't so different after all. (Want another one?Add-on cost: $25)
      Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Human Hedgemage, Male Human Thief, Male Human Dagger Hobo, Male Half-Elf Fighter, Female Half-Elf Swashbuckler
      These scavengers follow the great armies, stealing gear, treasure, and other supplies from the casualties of war. They are not above creating a few extra casualties in order to "find" a few more treasures! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
        Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Human Blademaster, Female Human Monk, Male Human Monk, Male Human Bard, Male Human Jester
      Lord Rhatagon's players travel from town to town, performing for the peasants and generally distracting from the privations of peasant life. Each has their own past that they are running from, but none moreso than Rhatagon himself, who travels with his minstrels seeking to rebuild the honor of his house. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
          Pictured from left to right, top to bottom: Male Goblin Necromancer, Male Goblin Monk, Female Goblin Witch, Male Goblin Warrior (Locked), Female Goblin Rogue, Female Goblin Ranger (Locked)
      Goblins seldom get the chance to determine their own destinies. They are the pawns of greater powers and are seen as vermin by the "civilized" races. But just as men can surely be evil, goblins can surely be good. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
      Pictured from left to right, top to bottom: Male Tengu Rogue, Male Dwarven Cleric, Male Halfling Trickster, Male Dwarven Guard, Male Tiefling Geomancer
      The Doublecreek Watch has had its hands full lately with escaped convicts, charlatans, and would-be heroes running around stirring up trouble! It's going to be one zany adventure, culminating in the wacky awakening of ancient horrors! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
      In addition to the Core Set, we've got some other stuff that is only available as add-ons. This is that stuff!
        Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Orc Fighter, Female Orc Cleric, Female Orc Archer, Male Orc Wizard, Male Orc Warrior
      The massive mountain Orcs have formed an uneasy alliance with the mountain queen. Orc warriors, once feared and killed on sight, are now commonplace among the caravan guards and mercenary companies that come down from the northern steppes. (Add-on cost: $37)
      The Mushroom Folk have lived under the dark trees for as long as time has been counted. Mercurial creatures, they can change their form to best suit the needs of the coming day. Although many will prefer to maintain a single form, others will change form each night: from simple form to warrior form, or from spore form to mage form. Each form has its strengths and drawbacks.
      The Mushroom Folk have interchangeable parts and can be assembled into thousands of different combinations. 
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset A  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset B  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset C  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset D  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Mushroom folk unlocked by stretch goals will be added to the Mushroom Folk Set.
      The Reclining Dragon rests comfortably on your tabletop, awaiting delicious adventurers to walk into its jaws. Or you could barter with it, or whatever, he's pretty chill that way! 
      This dragon is big! It measures 105mm across and will be cast in polyurethane resin. The wings come unattached. (Add-on cost: $25)
      As we hit these stretch goals, more miniatures will be added to the Core Set, Mushroom Set, and/or made available as add-ons!
      First up:
      When we reach $12,000, Cyragnome the gnomish swashbuckler will be added to the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Cyragnome is a fearless fighter with a flair for the dramatic. Many a bandit has had his knees bloodied by Cyragnome's flashing blade!
      When we reach $14,500 the Male Goblin Warrior will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Goblin warriors are fearless in battle. Often facing much larger foes, they often triumph through a combination of lucky crits and really bad attack rolls from lvl 1 adventurers!
      When we reach $17,000 the Female Goblin Ranger will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. She will also be available as a $4 add-on. Ricochet the goblin ranger got her nickname by bouncing a bolt off a guard's shield and into another guard's exposed back. 
      Once these goals are reached, we will introduce new ones!
      Wow! You scrolled so far! Thanks for taking the time you check out our project; you are the best!
