The Hound is an OUTSTANDING conversion, WONDERFULLY detailed, AND BEAUTIFULLY painted. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you like what I did.

 

Khan is Kiarah Amanodel's riding dog in my D&D campaign. Kiarah is my female elf druid character. She is only 90 pounds but together with Khan they are an efficient team. Kiarah raised Khan to hunt the orcs of the region after their quiet grove was raided by the Ragged Wound Tribe. Kiarah's lover was killed during the raid, so now the vengeful elf travels with her mysterious daughter to inflict harm on those who murdered Leonan.

 

It's in my plans to make another version of the model with the Kiarah riding Khan to battle.

 

I added more pictures of the WIP.

Wow indeed!  In addition to the amazing work on the conversion itself, the paint job is superb. Love the contrast between the black and tan natural colors on the dog and the bright red and gold on the barding.

This is what I would call a real "handy" dog haha. Fantastic!!! Awesome sculpting skills you show here and the painting is also quite good. Great work, thumbs up!!!

this is really impressive,  great inspiration for those thinking about conversions . Really like how you used normal things laying around the house, like the paperclip,  to create it . The sculpting is killer though

      This guy as it turns out can be disassemble into pieces!
      Win for me, because I hate detailed undercuts.
       
      And I do not like the staff (fish/dragon)head.
      Does not fit the character imo.
      The red squiggly turned out verynice!
       
      FINISHED here!

      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!

      I built a dispensor robot out of a reaper soda machine, a brain in a jar, a pair of goggles, a battery pack, and a pair of rat cyborg arms. 
       
      It'll get used for this is not a test eventually.
