Whoa wait, you sculpted that noggin?! Nicely done indeed!


Only the body and the hair. The face is a Mantic zombie that I added a nose, to. Faces are still beyond me,  but some day I will try it.

Very cool to make it personal like this, there's no mini alike, this is your character =) 

Looks good, good job!

She indeed made it personal :devil:


But yes,  the main fun with conversions is to make a mini resemble more the idea you have in your head. 


The original is very diminutive. I felt she needed some grunge and gore added to drive home the message: I may be small,  but will face any danger.

Great conversion/sculpt and the paint job is spot on!


Thank you. I really try to achieve a more grungy look atm to match my terrain better.

Indeed, she definitely knows how to use that sword.

Yes sir...we'll just a little off the top.




Oh, no!?!


Well I guess at least she won't need to give a refund...

Wow - the addition of the scultpted snake/severed head really adds to this figure - wonderful addition!


I thought so, too. The small shield really looked more  cute than imposing.

The conversion really adds a ton of character. Lovely painting as well.


Thank you kindly. 


In a photo shoot with Anirion and Elladan, Elliwyn made an appearance, too. Idea was to go for a clearing look,  as I don't have enough ground cover and trees yet for the dense forest look.

A few more shots of Elliwyn, as I am trying various photo set ups at the moment. The white background was a bit too stark, so I tried a few different pastels colours. 


I will also try a simple gradient with airbrush.

      I am diving into some more of the white-undercoated Bones 1 models that are cluttering up my Drawers of Doom, models that for some reason or other have been stuck in limbo never to get to painted-heaven.
      This was painted mainly with the so-called "one and done" method; a single coat of Citadel Contrast paints on a white undercoat, apart from a few details in regular paint, such as the sword and belt buckle done in metals and the whites of the eyeballs. Some black used for blacklining around some of the edges and Vallejo Sand Yellow for the hair.
      The rim of the base needs a second coat of black.

      77164 Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard.

      Sculpted by Derek Schubert. 25mm base.

      It was part of the "Half Sized Heroes" subset of the Bones 1 Core set.

      Continuing with my showcase of old Player Characters for Frostrun, we have Nox, the Drow Bard, represented by Astrid, Female Bard.
      Nox was a fun challenge and one of the few times that I played around with color palettes online, and tried out some test drawings to really decide on colors and patterns ahead of time.  Settled on black and dark grey for the main colors, with red for pattern accents, and purple for a dash of flavor.  I feel it lands properly in the category of a dark entertainer without reading too much like a Harley Quinn knock-off.  Though the player she was designed for loves Harley so I'm sure the similarities were appreciated.

      Reverse side under the spoiler:
      Nox is a Drow Bard and a newcomer to Frostrun.  Nox left behind her home in the Underdark to seek out a life of adventure and fame as a traveling entertainer, but soon found herself on the wrong side of the law.  With nowhere else to go, Nox has turned towards Frostrun, the edge of civilization.  A place where people are judged not by their past, but by their ability to survive.  Unfortunately, a dark force has threatened her one chance at redemption.  Will Nox rewrite the tale and come out a legend?  Or will darkness have its way and leave her as a footnote in someone else's song?
      Read her story and check out the rest of the Frostrun project HERE.

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

      Anyone who has got the male one of these able to tell me how easy it would be to remove his head for use on another mini?
