D&D NPCs: Dwarves (non-reaper)

Recommended Posts

Awesome! I've been looking for some good dwarves, and I might have to pick these up.

In that case I'd give some more of a review for you to consider:

The Scibor models are explicitly detailled with strong structures (even single beard hairs are distinctively carried out) and therefore easy to paint. You don't need umpten layers of 1/3 diluted paint to save the details.

A drawback are the big sprues under their feet for which i'd strongly recommend having a rotary tool to trim them off. Cutting pliers will produce tension, tending to break the resin at unintended spots (I had to glue a number of legs and feet back on). Also the detail ridges are uneven at some spots so you might want to file them down just a bit to get a smooth line, especially when working with true metallic color. But I guess that's all just normal resin issues.

Also the dwarves look very authentic with flawless proportions but their overall size is quite tall. They're easily standing eye-to-eye with a human model.

      Another quick tabletop paint job completed over the weekend.  I think this guy is from KSIV, @TGP told me he is a dwarven hero.  I used some basic techniques: basecoat, drybrush, and various washes.

      Painted up this cool dwarf.  Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out.  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

      Painted this swarthy looking dwarf up for a sorcerer character I'm planning on playing at some point.  I'm really happy with how he turned out.  My wife actually suggested the shock of white hair on the top of his head, which ended up being my favorite part.  Critiques and advice are always welcome, thanks in advance!

      Converted from a base of a Bronze Age Miniatures Dwarf, this piece will represent Alora, a Dwarf Bard from the College of Lore, my wife's character for an upcoming D&D campaign.  Additional pieces came from the Frostgrave Soldiers II and Wizards II kits, a lute from Mega Minis, and a quill recovered from an old Warhammer Empire Soldiers kit.

      It's a bit hard to see in the photos, but as her reason for adventuring is to get over writer's block, her only entry in the book is a tribute to Spongebob's infamous essay.

      This is a Dwarf Lord Ragmir by Scibor monstrous miniatures, I got this for my nephew awhile back and just finished it. This thing had a lot of good details, and a cool base even if it was a little small, which is no longer an issue since I just mounted him on his stock base and then a metal knockout from an electrical box. 




       
      Thanks for looking!
