3099: Klaus Copperthumb (Cloaked Dwarf Thief) & Friends

Recommended Posts

These are my February Resolution Challenge figures. I solemnly swear I will find better info on them and get the thread tagged and titled properly on later edits (E2A: nearly there).

Last minute, last day, 'what is sitting around on the paint bench that I could finish up?' figures, all of them. So, anyway...

...A mummy, a golem, an archer and a dwarf walk into a bar.

77144: Mummy:
He is from Bones II. Slathered in Grey Liner. Wet brushed with a mixture of clay brown leather "Custom Color" and "Ginger Cookie" (which does not look ginger at all) then washed with some much thinned "Brown Liner".

2777: Earth Elemental:
This guy (turns out he was not a golem) has been sitting around with only a coat of some brownish spray primer for the longest time. I painted Custom Color mystery brown, Ginger Cookie, and Brown Liner on him until he looked sorta finished. He will need something done to the rest of his base at some point, not sure what.

Plastic Archer:
This is Miles. A never quite finished GW archer (until the 28th of Feb).

3099: Klaus Copperthumb Dwarf Thief:
Klaus is a Reaper figure but he did not turn up using either thief+cloak+dagger OR dwarf+cloak+dagger in the store search. Bit of a disappointment that. I should have tried dwarf+thief+cloak, that would have worked. He was mostly done but needed some touch up where paint had worn away from handling and some extra shading. I don't think I have his cousins Quimby or Lydia.

of course the base of the earth elemental needs ruble!

 

nice paints - isn't it funny how we end up working on unlikely compatriots at teh same time?

I need to find some rubble that will be a similar color.

 

In this case I grabbed things that were close to done and what to paint next was sometimes determined by, 'how and on what can I use up this paint before it dries?'

 

 

As I've just received my Bones II (with four of those mummies), I'll use your mummy as an inspiration ...

Thanks. Maybe I should send him into the inspiration gallery...after I base him.

Great job! Nice job on all. The what can I use the rest of this paint on before it dries up conundrum, is how I ended up with an embarrassing amount of partially painted minis.

      A couple more of my recent tabletop paints.  Female on the left in gold and red came out of Bones 4.  She is in a leaning pose.  The one on the right is Deladrin, female assassin, roughly painted as a catfolk rogue.  Both figures were done with a traditional basecoat, drybrush and wash/ink technique. I did some NMM for the swords.

      Another ReaperCon entry, and I'm pretty happy about how this one turned out! I wanted to pick up a Freeblades faction, and I went with Wood Elves, since my Frostgrave army is Dwarven. (Balance in all things!)
       
      The mini is from DGS Games, the paints are from Reaper, the base and pigments are from Secret Weapon, and the tufts are from Shadow's Edge.

      This is the Crypt Lord from Wargods of Aegyptus ( Crocodile Games).
      He's part of my Shifting Sands Project.

      Omar was furious!
      His good for nothing son had been herding the goats and when he returned by the end of the afternoon one was missing!
      He hadn't even noticed it wandering off.
      After he had smacked his son around the head, he took him with him to search for the little goat.
      They had to be quick, it was getting late, Omar didn't feel like walking around in the desert at night.
       
      They searched for the little goat everywhere where his son said he had been.
      Omar got an eerie feeling, with every mile they got closer to the ancient ruins of a forgotten civilization.
      He rather not go there.
      To his dismay his son pointed at some tracks, unmistakenly goat prints and heading for the ruins.
       
      Cursing under his beard Omar slapped his son around the head again.
      Let's go! He shouted at the ignorant youth.
       
      It didn't take them long to reach the ruins.
      Ancient walls and buildings, some half buried, some above the ground, others no more than mere rubble.
      Omar had been there once before and that had been during bright daylight, now it was getting dark and he felt uneasy.
      His son once more found tracks of the missing goat.
      They led to one of the smaller buildings.
       
      Alright! Omar said, you stay here and warn me if you see anything strange!
      I'll go in and find the goat!
       
      Omar stepped into the building, it was dark inside.
      Now where could that stupid goat be?
      He walked through a sort of hallway, then he heard a muffled sound around the corner.
      Finally! He thought.
       
      Omar walked into the next room and stared into two red glowing eyes.

      A year ago I painted my first minis for D&D. It's not my best work, but it's most definitely an upgrade!
