My next project is another ranger. I already have a cool male elf ranger, but thought it might be nice to add a female version. So going through the Bones minis I came across Nienna.
Unfortunately her face detail was very shallow and detail was overall a bit hit and miss. I love the pose, though.
Out comes the scalpel, greenstuff and bitz box.
Two evening sessions later I swapped the head and weapon, shaved away some of the front detail and resculpted the area.
I am not entirely finished yet, but soon I can establish the base colours.
Ok lets talk about this mini.
I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far.
So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like:
And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas:
This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating.
The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini
That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better.
I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!
Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.
It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.
I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.
I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
Ideas are welcome!
Thanks for looking!
Hi everyone, here are pictures of my latest Gnoll, a converted Toghra the Gnoll Leader. The upper part is from 77235, Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The lower part of the mini is 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor. The spear head is the blade of 02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke and the staff is from 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. Here's the link to the conversion WIP if you'd like more information.
