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. ::):

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.

      "And it's a curious feature of Giants that they rise from their graves."
       

       
      These minis came from a variety of sources, and were re-scaled to try to match Reaper Frost Giants.  All were printed on an Elegoo Mars.
       
      The Draugr Jotunn is from "DrunkenDwarfMinis"
       

       
      The Giant Skeleton is from "Crippled God Foundry"
       

       
      The last is a Hill Giant Zombie from "RMPrintable"

      Rare for me, a one miniature thread.
       
      It seemed to be appropriate for the season to paint him up.  I missed Krampusnacht by a bit, oh well.

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      Here's a collection of spooky terrain I painted over October.
       
      All of them are from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery and printed on an Ender-3.

      Last day for October, but still got one in. 
       
       

      Battle Report!
       
       
      I realize this is not a halloween type mini, but the thought was there.  I was testing a few things here, but can't believe what came out.  I should have been taking photos as i went to articulate this point better, but I'll do my best to explain. 
      Mistake #1.  I thought i grabbed my bottle of black Stynlrez primer, but it turned out to be my black wash.  It ended up making a cool effect on the model with highlights being untouched.  Since this is a bones USA model, the material takes to paint and primers really well.  Mistake turned into a win, but note the paint didn't grab the wash as well.
      Mistake #2. Tried to do a contrast paint effect.  Didn't work.  The contrasted area turned into a great template for me to work with in laying my next colors down, so not all a loss.  The model looked muddy and i nearly just put it down. 
      Mistake #3.  I had to keep in mind, it never looks good at the layering point.  KEEP GOING. Putting more color down, adding depth, and touching up with highlights makes a big difference. 
      Now i felt like i was making progress and could see hope.  I did the hair, and that made me feel way better.  The brightness in the hair made me feel like i had some "pop" to it.  Now we're getting somewhere. 
      Overall, i added more layers, edge highlighted, black lined, and shaded in areas.  He came out looking decent.  Last model for October and I'm happy with him.
