Snowman Slayer - Scibor Miniatures 28FM0055

Recommended Posts

This resin beauty was on sale for only three bucks during CMON's BF sale. As I paint slowly (<1hr day) and Reaper's holiday minis didn't go on sale till the 7th, I figured this would be my Santa dwarf I paint up this year as the Reaper ones won't get here in time.


Day One... Partially assembled (axe head isn't glued on yet), and partially basecoated. Nothing fancy...

Nothing says "modern" Christmas like a short, blood thirsty Santa. COOL mini; have FUN with him!

Day 2... Worked on:


More basecoating (Boots/Sock/Fur/Snowman Remains)

Eyes (I hate eyes... hates them...)

Pass 1 (of many) Skin Shading



I forgot to put this in the original post, but I welcome all critiques and comments. Anything that could help me improve my painting. Especially with painting eyes with old tired hands... *sigh* Can I get a pair of 20 year old's hands without any shaking to isle three please? *sigh*


Color Documentation (as much for my own purpose as to share:


Eyes: Brown Liner, Splintered Bone, Saphire Blue + Vamperic Skin Highlight 1:1 (iris)

Cloak: Fresh Blood

Sock: Christmas Weath

Fur: Spintered Bone

Snowman: Pure White

Snowman Coal: Grey Liner

Snowman Nose: Pumpkin Orange + Yellow Sun 2:1

Skin Base: Fair Skin

Skin Shadow: Tanned Skin

Beard: Vamperic Skin (This isn't really the grey base I wanted, too purple...  Really wanted a grey/brown base, and have Ashen Brown coming in the mail...)

Looking good. The last shows that he has a definit evil look to him. Mostly because of the eyes! Someone send over that pair of 20 year old hands?

Heh no robinh, I wish... Eyes took about 5 tries and they still aren't "good" but I decided to move on :)


Ashen Grey came in the mail, so replaced beard. Also worked on (off camera) leather strap on back, and axe head.


Got two more nights to finish this up to tabletop quality for Monday PFS game. *crossing fingers*

Last WIP pictures... Had to rush to get him onto a base for PFS Monday Night. And of course when doing so I dropped him on the table and both the axe and snowman head/hand popped off. *sigh* Spend more time re-gluing instead of finishing. But oh well...

      Hey, all!
      Over the course of Bones 5, there were a few models that I was hoping for. I would say that Reaper totally exceeded my expectations and covered about 90% of my personal hopes. One of the things that wasn't in there was an Azer. For those of you who don't know, an Azer is a creature from the plane of fire, and they resemble Dwarves. They are so hot that their heads are covered in flames, and often this heat causes their weapons to be set aflame as well.
      Since I had an extra Dark Dwarf Pounder from my November order, I figured that I'd try my hand at a conversion. I have exactly zero experience with sculpting other than filling gaps or making a rock or two, but I have YouTube, so why not? The first thing that I did was get the model and choose a base to put it on. I went with a simple flagstone base from Secret Weapon.

      Next, I shaved off and filed down the little "3 Nail" sigil that these dudes wear. I like that Sigil just fine, but its more representative of Duergar than an Azer, so off it comes. I also clipped away the oval base and filed the feet to be flat.

      Next, I washed the model and pinned it to a cork. I also washed the base and drilled a hole for the pin, and then stuck that on a cork as well. Once the model was dry, I mixed up some Green Stuff and followed along with a step-by-step for fire that I found online. Basically, you start with a cone and stick it down. I put it on the Dwarf's head, and then used a thin tool to push down the edges of the cone into the head and shoulders. Then, I used tweezers to twist and pull the top of the cone into a sort of whirlwind. Then, dipping the tweezers in water to keep them from sticking, I took sections of the Green Stuff and pulled outward and twisted. Once I had the flames the way I wanted them, I went back in with the tool and made more indentations in the fire. I did the same thing with the flames on the weapon.

      I'm waiting for him to dry and cure right now, and then I'll get on to priming him and painting him up this weekend! Stay tuned!

      Fresh off the painting table come the Dwarf Adventurers II from Stonehaven Miniatures.  Their first Kickstarter, another set of Dwarfs, was the second Kickstarter I ever backed!

      First, a group of the "traditional" Dwarfs, if any of them can be called as such.














      One of my favorites of the set, a Dwarf Barber:

      Here are the Dwarfs I thought would work better as Duergar.



      My Duergar take some inspiration from World of Warcraft's Dark Iron Dwarfs, not just having white hair.  Gives them a bit of variety.

      Dead Tom:

      And preparing for Eberron, the Dwarforged:

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