Midblight Miniatures

Recommended Posts

Greetings, Children of the Reaper...

- I always think it's cheeky when entities pop up on manufacturers forums for a leg up; I do hope you will give me a pass, as I have contributed to the great Reaper Edifice (in a minuscule way) with a few sculpts in the past (Reaper Ron was kind enough to relieve me of a few Dregs.. Ghoul/Zombie sorts).

I'm just tinkering with a little range of my own , perhaps more whimsical fantasy figures..
Got a batch of greens finished (two gang/factions.. enough for an initial mould).. and am immersing myself in a bit of hitherto unexplored social media  (only got on FBook this year!).

 Have just set up a FaceBook 'Artist' page (please do take a look if you like, no obligation, am not flogging anything just now):
https://www.facebook.com/midblightminiatures/?modal=admin_todo_tour

And attached a couple of pics for you to examine...
 

All the Beast/ Hope you US Denizens had a great Thanksgiving , Paul M

OUTSTANDING! They would get on famously with my Mushrooms & kit-bashed Faerie Goblins,

Your pieces are WONDERFULLY imaginative & DELIGHTFULLY silly/whimsical. VERY WELL DONE!

- My Thanks Malefactus :}

- A bit like when bands are being ignored, I always feel a twinge of sympathy for forum posters who are met with  the chill of indifferent silence  .. you've spared me that indignity (I owe you!) :}
   Admittedly,  I did get a frosty non-welcome at the old FrothersUKForum (but felt I had to post there, to honor The CyberGods of Old).

   If you've a blog/ instagram/FB with your modelling work, let me know, and I'll take a peek (always interested to see what my fellow mini-fanciers are up to).

HUUUUUGEE fan of your work, and amazingly enough, I was literally painting some base glazes on your Fractured Dimension Kostchtchie just last night!!! I've got your Dregs in metal from Reaper and several others of your work from FD. I've been waiting to do an appropriate diorama for your 'paladin in hell' for some time.

 

Just went and liked your FB page and will definitely look out for your stuff online if/when it starts selling, or if you venture to Kickstarter or something like that. ::D:

It was my pleasure to supply a morale boost. For me posting photos of my work is about the only way they will be seen...I do send dome out as surprise packages as another way of having them seen.

There is always the risk of being snubbed. There are times even I can't come up with a way of expressing my admiration. That wasn't a problem with your creations. They are exactly the sort of pieces 

that I LOVE

 

I have quite a lot of my stuff here in the Conversions & Presentation section...just look for The Last Hurrah...well here's a link:

Cute little goblin.  Nice detail work, too.  I can just imagine her offering a poison toadstool  or a magic apple to some young adventurer.

Adrift - thanks! The Fractured Dimensions project was pretty expansive; I think the wee Perribo clowns were my favourite sculpts.. there're some nicely painted examples if you search out : Minis by Finch (blog).

Malefactus; Wow- really impressive/inventive passion project (sort of thing I'm aiming for in ways, though you're light years ahead), your scenes/characters are reminiscent of stop-go animations (cool stuff).

Inarah - Ta; good (that's what I was shooting for .. fairytale feel) :}

Crowley- Thanks! I sculpted that one middle of 2017 (since then, quite a few 'doggy adventurers' have popped up).

JoshuaSlater- Ta (it's a tortoise race between you, me and AndyColeman (4A) :}

.. Great Lidless Eye ('Wreathed in Flame')  -Had never heard of them (but now see the potential ..had pictured him in trad pug fawn.. but pastel 'My little pony' colours could work.. )

  Added a couple of dwarv-ish pics..

Cool minis. 

Not my kettle of tea, but yeah, they look fun.   

 

Thanks for posting them. 

(I don't Farcebook, so wouldn't have seen them if you hadn't posted them)

Gadgetman! - Well, thanks for pausing to give them a once over (in any case).
                       - I long resisted Facebook's Dark Palantir... (in fairness, it's generated a bit of work for me since I .. 'plugged in' , in April).

typed 'them' twice by accident, then recoiled..

Time moves slowly in this web-wreathed attic (glacially so).
- I sculpted a couple of trad Skellies for the last Bones KS (hope a good few of you have enjoyed applying paint; inflicting them on your PCs)!

I suppose this is a 'sorta hobby-log' entry (as things stand); I have had my little creations cast up 'Shiny and Pewter', and am looking at taking them to market (it'll be Kickstarter to get the glacier moving; and I'll shift across to that area of the forums when that occurs).
   Couple of pics of the Metal (one of a coloured in metal)..... wishing all you Children of the Reaper sharp eyes and nimble fingers.... Paul M

      The way of the Dawi-kin

      A goal of Acquiring every single Reaper Dwarf and painting em up.

      Master check list has been put together that will be updated with time.

      Any duplicate model will receive conversion using Reaper weapons.


      I like my check-off lists and achievement progress icons.
      Green box indicates the mini is owned, the picture next to model indicates that is has been painted.
       
       
      ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
       
      Reaper, Dwarf Mancatcher, sku: 14463
      Made this guy a Noblemen with bright colored clothes and golden glave.


       
       
      Reaper, King Axehelm of Kragmarr, 77478
      Wanted a dirty worn look on this dwarf kind, and a high contrast in color scheme of white and red.
      Made a mistake on this one using wrong type of shade that made everything glossy, had to layer addition shades of different brand to take out the gloss. turned out a bit darker than planned.

       
       
       
      Reaper, Dwarven Brewmeister, 02559
      Quite a strait forward model to paint.
      Did not want crazy colors for this guy.

      A variation of royal blue color scheme with gold patterns and closed eye lids could be interesting.
       
      The rest of the gang. Those mugs man, are like half the size of that poor little barrel.
      Wanted grouped colors of tans and browns to create tonal contrast instead of use of intense colors.
      These are quite easy to paint, good models.



       
       
       
      Reaper, Hagar, Dwarven Hero, 77482
      Wanted to make Hagar and Durgam Deepmug into a two brother team of green-beards.
      Just leather, iron, and green.

       
       
      Reaper, Durgam Deepmug Dwarf Hero, 77400
      The green-beard brother of Hagar.
      Rangers both, with green rune weapons

       
       
      Reaper, Dwarf Royal Weapomaster, 77574
      There is nothing royal about this malicious looking guy.
      Went for high contrast red/white.
      I was thinking of possible conversions, I don't know, this is not the most interesting dwarf model they have for that.

       
       
       
      Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011
      Gave him axe and a shield from reaper Weapon pack III
      Usually I do not go for bright colors, yet this warrior needed some frost armor! (too much terreria of late)
       

       
       
       
      Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011
      The original model with a bit older paint job, or battle dirt paint job ;)
      But with TrueBlood effect paint from GreenStuff


       
       
       
       
      Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073
      This is one of the cooler looking models, even though was a bit hard to paint.
      Older paint job, dirty, battle weathered.
      Went with Conan the Barbarian face paint.
       

       
       
       
       
      Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073
      Same model with Weapon Pack III axe upgrade.
      Most recent paint job, cleaner with different paint scheme of bronze and green.

      Brought some painting models for vacation.  Finished the Hell Hound last night, didn’t WIP it.
       
      Had Yephima on my shelf of shame for a long time.  If it ends up 1/100 as good as the studio version I’ll be happy.  Plan on light blue skin and silvery hair, like the Bestiaries suggest.  Other than that, not sure...

       
      Here she is primed with Brown Liner.  That’s gonna take some work to get the skin tones brighter.

      Story
      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, four projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive!
      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).
      Strendu Bodaway Pachoa Niyol  (Actual copies of the resin miniatures. Note that the resin miniatures below are not 100% in scale with each other, but resized for editing purposes.)
        Grefven always makes lovely things and is a reliable KS creator

      Gonna start another WIP.
      This figure is bent, her hair is weird, and her features are MICROSCOPIC!
       
      So, I’m gonna kind of rush her.
       

       
      Trimmed, washed, primed in brown liner.  No attempt to straighten her bend.  The sword forms an S shape.
       
      Face was Terran Khaki, Faded Khaki, Amber Gold, then Splintered Bone mixed in.  Then I did a half-assed lining and shading with a dilute mix of Dragon Black/Ruddy Flesh.  Eyes were then done with Splintered Bone/Dragon White, and a Dragon Black/trace Ruddy Flesh dot.
       
      Had some nearly dry ?Red on the palette I slapped on her lower lip, then glinted it with the lightest mixed skin tone.
       
      The hair seems like it’s supposed to be actively blown by wind.  It was painted Dragon Black, Cloudy Grey, and Cloudy Grey/Dragon White.  I then Re shaded and altered things with black again.  Honestly, her head could be Kitsune or Cosplay Cat ears, or a crown.  But there is hair texture, so I painted it like black hair. 
       
      Planning for blue dragon head since I’m due to paint another 1/5 of my Kobolds, and blue is in line.
       
      Plan on a red/orange cloak for contrast with the dragon.

       
      Earth Brown leggings.  Woodstain Brown boot leather, belt, gauntlets.

      Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors!
       
      As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome!
       
      Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.
