Lidless Eye: Stonehaven Dwarf Adventurers II

Recommended Posts

You're so fast!  I'm pleased with myself for having one-and-a-half of these done, and you've already got, what, 21?  Great faces, and I love the color scheme on the dancing girl.

They look great!  Nice work on lighting, and i love the amount of detail in the hair and armor.

Fresh off the painting table come the Dwarf Adventurers II from Stonehaven Miniatures.

 

Wow! Holy Carp have you ever been busy!::o:

 

I have to ask about the red and blue colour palette though.

Are those just colours you associate with Dwarves in your fantasy setting?

Does it represent them coming from the same clan?

Just curious. ::):

Haha, I’m painting the monk right now. Their first dwarfs were my first KS. I missed these sadly. You did a great job on them!

Yeah, it's a leftover from my Warhammer days.  The main colors would be blue with white trim (not many of this minis had much trim like that) and red or green cloaks.  The Duergar just got red to make them look different.

This is an impressive amount of work! I only have a handful of these primed, and that is as far as I have gotten. These look great too! I'll be looking to this post for inspiration when I am able to get to these as well.

Exquisite! and those are fantastic sculpts. I need the Cossack and that pirate in my life.

The Barber-ian, the bald Duergar, and that chain-bearded Dwarforged are especially spectacular.

And preparing for Eberron, the Dwarforged:

Great job! These two are especially nice to see since I am such an Eberron junkie!

      This is Ametrine.e looked more like a gnome to me than a dwarf.more so the next time I paint her, we'll see what we end up with!
       
      She is incredibly cute and a lot of fun!

      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 from their latest Kickstarter, here are some Mercenaries from MOMMiniaturas.   They're really making me want to play Mordheim again.

      A Witch Hunter type:


       
       
      A self-portrait that I had to get as an add-on:


       
       
      A very obvious remake of one of Mordheim's first special characters, Johann the Knife:



      The rest of the Empire-style mercenary scum:

      Here's some shots from the penultimate session of our D&D game.
       
      The party finally confronts the Sewn Sisters.
      The tiles are from "Dwarven Forge" and "Secret Weapon".  The tables, chairs, and most props are from "Mantic:Terrain Crate", with the cauldron being from an Old Glory Crones set.  
      The Scarecrow & Leomon (Half-Elf Paladin) are from "Reaper Bones".
      The rest of the party are 3D prints, from HeroForge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala.
      The Sewn Sisters are 3D prints from DarkRealms.
      Everything was hand painted by myself.
       


       
      Cradle of the Death God.
      The tiles are Dwarven Forge.
      The party are 3D prints, with designs from Hero Forge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala. (One is a Reaper Bones piece)
      The Soulmonger is a 3D print designed by Miguel Zavala.  The God That Never Was is a 3D design by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.
      Everything was painted by myself.  I also added LEDs.
