Blood Moon Miniatures Bog Raiders (the entire line plus conversions!)


Recommended Posts

These were painted in several sessions.  I would call this low tabletop quality, taking around 2-2.5 hours each figure.  I really wanted some 28mm Fimir to paint and to use for Heroquest and/or D&D (Pathfinder) as a new monster that my players will not have heard of (my group has never played Warhammer... or messed with the model ranges).  

One group was converted using Games Workshop Ork and Goblin pieces, as well as a Bombshell Miniatures axe.  I'm happy with them all and I'm happy to say the converted ones (the standard bearer) was the most frightening conversion I've ever done, it was a weapon swap drilling out the hand, which I've never done and I feel I succeeded nicely.

Those look awesome!

   Do u have a picture of all of them in a unit together? 

Wish to have these guys in AgeofWonders3 lolz. 

 

I can get a picture of them all together soonish.  Depends on how much camera time I have today.

 

Bog Raiders = Fimir ?

 

Yes.  They are smaller than the classic Fimir of Games Worskshop fame, but they are single-eyed humanoids with club tails.  They fit the mold of the classic Heroquest Fimir warrior, which is what really drew me to them.

      Overview
       
      I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back.
       
      The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting.
       

      The original figure; this is the backup.
       

      The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green.
       

      You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later.
       

      There are no visible gaps on the outside.
       

      The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll
      just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield.
       

      The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.

      The term was introduced into evolutionary biology by L. A. Borradaile, who described it as "one of the many attempts of Nature to evolve a crab".  1916. 
       It is believed to have independently occurred 5 times. 
       
      or a wizard did it. 
       
      this was a 45min conversion at reapercon hobby hijinx tables. Made from an angel, drider and flail snail, painted as hermit crab. 
       
      if I did another, it would be easier to paint the drider as a sea-elf instead of adding a new mini.   Not sure why I would want a second, but it was fun to make!

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      He of the Gurgling Belly! The Famished Giant! The Gluttonous Prince! He of the Single Eye! The Horned Trampler! Monstrum horrendum, informe, ingens!
      He is a big beefy boy.
       

       
      It's difficult to get him all in one shot! Here are a few representative close-ups,


       

       

       

       

       

       
      and a couple of full shots, ish.

       
       

       

       
      More partials: 
       
      I tried something new and basecoated him in a GW green contrast (much of which is still the hair and beard) and painted Caucasian flesh tones over that. Ultimately didn't give the Frazetta look I was hoping for, but definitely worked better than my usual straight-out-of-the-bottle approach. 

      The little (regular-sized?) fellows dancing around his big stompy feet are some Eureka fauns I've posted earlier, and an older, metal version of S'kara the Skoli (99869). I love the detail on this pointy lady. I gather the skoli are a Hellborn/Tiefling alternative, but all those extra knee- and elbow-spikes got me thinking a Fey Lady of Thorns would be a good scheme. That's why her glaive and armor are bronze rather than iron. Genuinely forget if I've posted this paint-job on her before, but a quick search didn't bring her up. So here she is now, perhaps again.
