Fewmaster Toede, the hobgoblin

Recommended Posts

May I present to you; Fewmaster Toede of the Dragon Lance Chronicles.

 

Sorry, the pictures didn't turn out that well.

But I'm quite happy with the paintjob.

 

All kinds of C&C is very welcome.

Toede never look better. You did a SPLENDID job bringing him to life. Your work with the brush & eye for color are OUTSTANDING; & the base is BEAUTIFULVERY WELL DONE!

The mini is great and I love the setting, but when did he go on a diet?  That is one svelte Toade!  I always pictures him as being a tub of lard.

 

The face is perfect and you captured the rubbery worm lips perfectly.  Nice job!  I may have to revise my view of the PITA,  my players will not be thrilled.  They got away from his machinations a number of times because his squad had to stop when he got winded...

It's been 30+ years since I read the original DL trilogy, but I don't remember him being non-human...

Thank you for kind words everyone!

 

He is from a Ral Partha boxset with characters from the Dragon Lance stories. But I will have to check for further details.. As I remember from when I read the books he is a hobgoblin, and on the heavy side..

He most definitely is a hobgoblin.  I Googled him after I posted to fill my memory gaps; that's a nice DL rat hole you can go down.

Very nice paint job on him!

 

...and yes, quite a bit of interesting trivia to be known about him.

      So in all honestly, no idea what a prestidigitator is, and every time I spell it, I'm afraid I'm going to get it wrong!
       
      So just finished this figure sculpted by the late, great Dennis Mize I'm guessing some time in the nineties. She's a very simple figure, just a mage, some gloves and a dagger, so it didn't take too long. The longest part was of course figuring out what color to make her, which took a few days. In the meantime I did her skin, face and hair.   I was kind of torn between green and red, and red eventually won.
       
      I really like how the photos came out.  I tried taking them this afternoon at lunch, like I usually do, but because of some glaring problems with the miniature, a hair on her for example, and a bit of lint or dust, as well as a few imperfections I spotted in the paint job, I figured I'd try again tomorrow. I got home though and it was still pretty light outside, so I actually took her in the back yard and photographed her. I think the colors came out very vibrant with this in mind.  So anyhoos, here she is, enjoy:

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!

      Good evening my cohorts in miniature crime!
       
      So here's another miniature I just finished last night and got photographed over lunch today. I've been on a dinosaur kick recently, I think partially inspired by the Lost Valley Kickstarter box.  This one in particular was sculpted in 1982 by Dennis Mize at Ral Partha in his Children of the Night series, and excellent and gritty group of miniatures.  I'm coming to realize that slowly but surely I'm painting tons from this range, maybe some day I'll have the whole range painted. 
       
      Anyhoos, here is this one, a pretty large figure by Partha standards of the time, pretty much the size of a good sized wingless dragon:
       
      and a few close ups of his massive skull:

       
      I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I tried to stay away from just the greens and greys of dinosaurness, and went for hopefully some more brilliant colors.  Tried to some some stripes patterns, and there really is nobody that can tell me that he wasn't this color, so I think Im reasonable safe in my color choices.  As I keep painting more of these little prehistoric beasties, I'm going to keep having to do different colors.  Still haven't done much blue yet.  We'll see what dinosaur comes next.  Anyway, hope you enjoy him!

      Hello guys and gals,
       
      So I had shown off the face of this poor lass a day or two ago, due to the fact that she had a horrible accident with a bottle of red paint and I had to repair her.  She's okay though now, and here is what she looks like in her entirety:
       

       
      with a nice little size comparison photo just for fun. She's small, but not super small, but always nice to have the option to check her size out:
       

       
      and if you are at all interested in seeing her painful plastic surgery, you can check out here:
       
      A face full of blood
       
      Which will show you my temporary chagrin and dismay.  You'll see another miniature I'm posting at more or less the same time, a Ral Partha Allosaurus, that was the culprit of the red paint.
       
      Anyway, another miniature done, chiseling away at my mortal coil!
       
      Next!!!

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.
       


      Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard
       

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard
       



      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.
