02460 Vernicia to double axe wielding half orc

Recommended Posts

Eldest digit is turning 10 in two weeks.  There will be a pathfinder party and I get to be the dungeon master.  I also get to prepare minis for the party.  While most will make characters a couple days before (end of next week), Indy the eldest wanted to make one this weekend.  Went with a female half-Orc ranger wielding a double axe.  Sounds fun, right?  Well, I don't seem to have a lot of double axe wielding minis. Actually have a prepainted one, but it is an Orc and he's definitely male, so that was out.  

 

I figure I can convert an appropriate figure that's wielding a pole arm without too much trouble.  But it would have to have the right positioning for the weapon.  Came across Vernicia and Indy says, that's her.  It turns out I have this figure from years ago.  Pulled it out of the box of shame, primed black.  Here it looks after dusting it off pre cutting.

cut the standby end off and made a point out of what was left of the shaft.  Also found a couple of prepainted orkz to remove axe heads from.  They are big and ridiculous so they'll be perfect!

drilled out the shaft end of the plastic axe heads a little to give them a chance to hold onto the sharpened shaft and applied super glue.  Also glued to a base at this point.  Then hit the whole thing with a heavy drybrush of white primer.

And did a quick paint all in one night.  Left it on the table and we will see what the reaction is in the morning.  I think she turned out pretty good.  What do you think?

      Two more members of my hill giant tribe, obviously the one on the left is the original. The one on the right has a totally seamless hair piece (!) and obviously a modified club based on one stolen from another giant. He also has a slightly more upright stance which required an extension of his furs and was probably more trouble than the effect is worth, to be honest.

      This is one of my armies that I’m working on for Dragon rampant. Sadly there are not many pictures to post of it right now since I don’t have many models, yet. But a large portion of it will be made up of Reaper overlords units with a couple of minis from others brands thrown in. 
      The first one! This is an Overlords Onyx phalanx by Reaper minis. I needed to compare sizes with my hero before getting a full force so I sadly only have one currently.

       
      The other unit currently being worked on is a Wizkids Nolzurs triceratops that I am converting into a cavalry mount. I am using milliputt for the harness, and am planing to use paper clips to make the reins. I’m wanting to make it barded like a warhorse but I’m unsure on how to do it. Any suggestions?
      I hope to get my rider in here soon so I can start working on that part of the conversion.
      Thankyou for looking!

      This was my 2019 ReaperCon Open category entry. I took Shaelin, a female bard and converted her to a vampire hunter. I am very happy with how she turned out as these were the most intensive conversions that I have done before.
       
      Changes that I made:
      Removed hawk on shoulder
      Swapped lute for a crossbow
      Added hat
      Removed hood on cloak
      Added fur to cloak
      Swapped sword for crossbow bolt
      Changed cloak clasps
      Added overlap and buttons to tunic
      Added sleeves

      This was created at Reapercon 2018 at the bones conversion class. 
      removed the rider and the saddle, added the mystery wings. 
      it went through 2 rounds of greenstuffing and re-texturing.  
      only to end up here.  painted between Christmas and New years. 
      I still have issues with the wings, which a mostly drybrushed. Ah well.

      Since I got a bunch of Bones Ghasts from Bones 2... or was it 3?  Bones 4? Whatever. But I wanted to do something to make them all a little different. So a few simple cuts, and a couple of drops of glue... and I've got some variety in my Ghasts.


      Now to paint them!
