Stonehaven Gnome Wolf-Rider

Recommended Posts

This is going to be my first big project of the year and will most likely be my only entry in the painting competition at OrcCon in February. I would do at least one other but I need to focus on the entries I have planned for ReaperCon. So I present to you the gnome knight mounted on a wolf from Stonehaven. I grabbed this little guy from the Box of Goodwill and have been itching to painted him. He has been primed and I have done a black base for all the metal as well as the wolf's fur. The eyes are done, except for possible color on the wolf's. The gnome's came out a lot better then I expected as they had little definition to them.

Now I plan to be ambitious with the base. I am using a piece of burl wood that my dad cut up for me. I plan on painting it up as a rocky cliff with a pond at the base and a small waterfall. So I am going to have to make wood look like rock and attempt using resin for the first time. Any tips?

Started on the skin with a base coat and some shading. Did some mixing of paint for the shadow color, it is hard to tell in the photos but what do you think?

I also realized that GW's Typhus Corrosion texture paint would be perfect to make the base rougher and more rock like. I have done one coat, it was still wet when I took the picture, and may do one or two more.

I know this says gnome but it screams goblin.

 

Nice work on that base btw.

Yeah, he is kind-of golblinish. I decided to have fun with his base so hopefully everything works out.

 

 

Well, I have finished his face. I am actually really happy with it as I was nervous about the mixing of colors. It is shaded with a mix of tanned shadow and royal purple. I cleaned up his hair and gave him brows.

I also settled on the color for the cloth, green bordered in brown and have base coated the green. The wolf has begun to receive its color as well. I am going to go with a dark grey and hopefully I can make it so he doesn't blend in to much with the base.

Speaking of the base, I actually did it. I poured the resin on Sunday. The directions say full hardness is reached in 72 hours so tomorrow will be when I find out if I was successful. I am optimistic as it did not leak and the left over resin that I mixed is hard. A couple of things did not go as planned though. The resin ended up being deeper then I had planned due to the two separate areas combining. The second was that I decided to do some foam moss as the rocks needed something and moss would make sense in a wet area. Well when the resin level increased, it reached the foam which soaked it up. So I am going to try to knock down the gloss and with matte sealer and paint. If anyone has other ideas on how to fix it, please let me know!

Well it is not perfect but I am happy with the result. The resin set nice and hard, but it turns out that it did leak between the base and mold so I had to do some clean-up. It also looks like I did not have as level as I thought so the top is not level. But as it was my first time working with resin, I am proud if it.

I have done a lot more work on the gnome. Most of it was done on Saturday when I had some friends over to paint. The green is done. The gnome's hair is done. The wolf/dog is mostly done. I say mostly as I need to finish the ears and maybe do some work on his feet. I said wolf/dog as it is not looking very wolfy. I originally thought to go with a grey wolf and then thought black. But I was looking at pictures and noticed that most of their coats are light colored tipped with dark. I did not feel confident trying to pull that off with this guy and was liking how he was looking, so I decided he does not have to be a wolf.

Very impressed with your work SG, you've been leveling up at a phenomenal rate with your pieces. No wonder you are winning a bunch of competitions around your area. Soon you will be a forces to be reckoned with all over the place.

      Finished this just before christmas.  I'm rather happy with the way it came out.  The blending is probably the best I've ever done, and I used true metallic shading on all the armor.
       

       

       
      I hope my Secret Sophie partner enjoys it as well.

      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!

      I painted the skeleton knight from my October order.

      I'm a huge Okami fan. I've played the game end to end 5 times and I have it in progress a 6th time. I took Reaper Mini's Spirit Wolf and painted it like the white wolf, Amaterasu. Then I sculpted its iconic, flaming reflector out of green stuff and attached it to its back also with green stuff. Enjoy!
