Stonehaven Bits and Bobs -- A Lion Centaur and Hengeyokai

Recommended Posts

Part of the Stonehaven Half-Orc Kickstarter were these interesting adjuncts, a lion-centaur and two hengeyokai.  The hengeyokai seem to be some sort of Japanese-derived shapeshifters, but they are sculpted as tiny bird creatures, and I do mean tiny.
 
At the moment all I have done is prepped them.  They have had the flash cleaned (not much there; these are good castings), the centaur glued to a base, primed white and washed first with Burnt Umber and then with a transparent purple mixed from Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta.  The purple might still be a tad wet on the lion centaur.

How tiny are the hengeyokai?  This tiny:

Wow, your little shapechangers are hilariously tiny!  There's another thread on about wearable magnifying lenses....  Just so you know.

      Coincidentally, I had this figure very nearly done two days ago when the sad news of Diana Rigg’s passing was made public.
       
      It always was a tribute to her incandescent portrayal of Emma Peel in the old British TV show “The Avengers”, but now it’s a memorial as well. Requiescas in pacem, Ms. Rigg.
       
      The figure is “Pandora King (Classic)” from Crooked Dice miniatures. Crooked Dice has a minis game based on cult TV and they’ve produced a lot of different figures suitable for that sort of storytelling.

      Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
       
      I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
       
      Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.

      Giant Tortoise from Stonehaven Miniatures. I have more of their stuff than any company except Reaper. They are actually running a kickstarter right now (in case anyone is interested).

      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!
