Looks pretty sweet! C&C? The top of the noggin and the hammer could use a wee bit more highlighting imo. They are slightly flat, and a few subtle dabs of something bright could make them more oomphy. Nonetheless, this is 1) just my 2c, and 2) the figure is still way cool.

I'll keep that in mind for the next time ::):

Thanks!

 

I think I spent about 3-4 hours on him total the other day. I was on a roll and kicking out some decent tabletop+ pieces. ::D:

      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.

      And preparing for Eberron, the Dwarforged:

      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I was originally a bit worried by all the little details and layers of clothing but it wasn't a problem.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

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