Good evening Reaper folks!
Tonight another Stonehaven Miniatures figure, a Gnome Ranger with a crossbow. A fun and quite petite figure and the funnest part of this was was choosing hair color, hope you guys like him!
Really starting to get into painting Stonehaven, some very fun and expressive figures, full of personality!
In a world where an entire player race seems to have been mostly overlooked throughout the years, Stonehaven Miniatures created a Kickstarter that was oriented mostly for the fine folk, and made a bunch of different gnome characters, male and female, cast in metal. Here are two of them that I've recently finished, a Gnome Paladin and a Gnome Scout:
These are some really small miniatures, and as I finally was able to photograph them I could see a few spots that I could probably improve upon them, but being that these are just for fun and enjoyable, I think I'm happy where I am with them.
The hair on them is a little bit outside of the natural realm of color, not your typical blonde, black, brown or red. I sent an email to the sculptor Mike Evans and asked him how he imagined his gnomes, with natural color hair or more fantasy colors and he said bright colors, so I kind of followed that idea with these two.
I still live in that past of the old D & D description which talked about them having skin the color or wood and either blonde or white hair, but I'm trying to move away from that pretty old concept. I've seen art for gnomes in other newer D&D books and they are certainly more vibrant than before
Anyhoos, hope you enjoy them!

Just posting some older stuff from years past while I work on a larger product. Definitely not my best work, and definitely not a great mini (there weren't any lips sculpted in...come on!). I do like the way the hair and armor turned out.
I haven't posted a piece in the showoff area in a long while. I mostly put my work in that paint club group, but this one was special and i wanted to share.
I had this figure staring at me and didn't have a theme in my mind. Then it hit me that she for perfectly for this conflict in Ukraine. She's holding her sword up as if the last line of defense. I created the small base with the fallen shield representing the broken boundaries and fallen defenders. But atop her hill that represents her country, she calls for aid and stands strong. May they all stand strong.
Lady Vigilance and her call to arms.
Finished this up a few weeks ago. Tried a lot of things with this - colour composition art reference, subdued NMM, considering spot colour placement, using a wider range of colours for oil pin washes. Took quite a long time but I was pleased with how it turned out.
