A couple of dogs from Valiant (VEL1061(b)) and IWM (DH-403)

Recommended Posts

Just two dogs that I finished up this weekend. One of which I finished up months ago at a paint n take but just now decided to finish basing and the other from the Iron Wind by the ounce bins at Gencon (does anyone know his id number? I can't find him on IWM website.) Found

This was my first attempt at using static grass. I'm fairly pleased.

This is the one from Iron Wind and I don't know it's ID number. If anyone does that would be appreciated. It's the war dog from the historicals line

No fancy basing for this one. I decided I liked how it looked plain. I had to redo some of his markings after I put the sealer on because some brown got into the sealer so  Iost some of the contrast. Unfortunately I didn't remember what color I used to get the markings in the first place. This color stands out better but the old one looked more natural.

The two of them together.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      this is one of those miniatures that has sat on my shelf of shame for far too many years (or decades even!).  I got this as a used mini over 20 years ago which a paintjob that was actually flaking off the miniature.  In addition I was missing a few parts, namely one leg and a wing bone.  So I stripped the mini and put it in a baggy with the rest of my dragons.
       
      and time passed....
       
      about 4 months ago I opened up an unrelated box containing a keep wall from Games Workshop and there, lying in the box are the old pieces to the Bridge of Sorrows.  I looked it over and I decided its time had come:  I had some new painting skills and tricks to experiment with and the mini itself was just too iconic to be left lying forgotten in a box where no one would see it.  With that I started cleaning up the mini and seeing what was left and what I could do with the mini.
       
      I like the idea that drakes are a usually a little plainer than dragons, being occasionally eaten by said dragons, I decided I wanted the body to be a brown and started as such.  However, that quickly got boring and I thought, 'what if he had some mating plumage and his wings brightened when that time of the year came around.  Of course to woo the ladies he would need some really nice present, and what could be more like chocolates to a Wyvern than a damsel in distress!  so with the dragon started it was time to move on to the rest of the diorama. 
       
      The wizard is done pretty typically, using a shade from dark to light which seems to work very well for me, but the centaur was a challenge.  I went to start painting his armor using metallic and the miniature was just too small to let any sort of variation in the metallic show through.  So I decided to try NMM and this time it worked!  I really could not be more pleased with how the centaurs armor came out, looking for all the world like bare metal that has seen a number of battles but has not been allowed to rust but has lost some of that factory polish and shine. (if you cant tell i am really proud of that armor!)
       
      So with that history, here are the results!  I hope you like what you see.  This is a really excellent model and one of the most dynamic set pieces I have.  The plinth the piece rests on is a piece of black palm I got in a grab bag of wood and I chose it because the surface looks like muddy water and does a good job of making the bridge look like its just hanging there.
       
      Enjoy!

      Kinda wish he'd been a bit furrier as all the armour plates came out a bit bland.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      They're off to see the wizard...

      And good evening to all towards the end of the year of 2020!
       
      So I just finished this one this morning, another Wood Elf sculpted by Tom Meier for Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and recently re-released by Ral Partha Legacy.
       

       
      His eyes are very small, and I tried to stay "in the lines" but they may have slightly gotten out of their orbits.
       
      My only other problem here was trying to figure out the colors, but hopefully what I eventually chosen doesn't clash.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      Winter Salutations to you cold weather Reaper ptarmigans!
       
      So I'd mentioned in a previous post how Ral Partha Legacy, a sister company of Iron Wind Metals, has recently opened up and one of their ranges they have acquired is Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures.  So here is one of them a Wood Elf Lady:
       

       
      I really love these miniatures. I'm used to painting Ral Partha stuff, but these are quite a bit different, as the detail is so fine and detailed.  The eyes and some of the jewelry is so small and hard to paint.   Even though they are 30 mm, they are quite realistically proportioned so lots of the details aren't exaggerated.
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy, and if you've got a few moments check out the Ral Partha Legacy page!
