Headless Horseman - Pathfinder Dullahan #50 Re-Paint

Recommended Posts

"On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless! – but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle!"

 

After watching Sleepy Hollow the other day, I wanted to share with you this Headless Horseman that I painted up a year ago for a Sleepy Hollow One-Shot.

 

At the time, Nolzur's did not have their unpainted version available, so I tracked down a Pathfinder Pre-Paint and decided to give it a makeover.  The mini was a birthday gift to a friend who was running her first ever D&D game.

 

If you want to see the WIP check the spoiler

The original was very monotone and in need of some color and new-life.

I gave it a more interesting base, to capture that image of the Horseman racing down the road towards his targets.

Primed and base coated.

Nearly there...

 

And the finished result!

It's still a bit drab, but definitely better than the original.  And the recipient of the gift loved the present!  Though our true adversary did turn out to be a flame-skull and the horseman barely saw any table time!  It's still a great piece to memorialize a DM's first game!

It is indeed better than the render on the package. Nice work!

      Hi all.  I've got a few minis floating around that were painted when my skills were lesser.  Been humoring the idea of touching them up.  My finished minis are sealed with a coat of Krylon Matte spray.  Any tips for touching up minis?  Anything to look out for?

      So I had this mini for some time, it was damaged, missing an arm and a hand. I repaired it using some bits and repainted it. Here's the WIP topic. I like how everything turned out, thanks for looking!

      So a while ago I bought 10 of these prepainted wizkids merfolk minis off ebay for cheap. The paintjob on them is horrible but I like the sculpts quite a lot and my dnd group used them all the time during our underwater adventure campaign and was quite happy with th. One of them was missing an arm and I just put her in "to do" box and didn't use her in my games. After some time I chopped of her hand for another project and in the end I was left with an armless and handles mermaid.
       


       
      Since my bits box has grown quite substantially during the last year I decided to pick something out for her in the arms and hands department and also repaint her. 
      I will post updates on the process here and in the end make a new topic in the show off section. I'm open to comments, criticism and sugestions and I hope you like this proces!
      Thank you for looking!

      So here's three more, just quick drybrushes but I think they are good enough for my dnd table. Hope you like them too! 
       
      First one is an umberhulk:

      before repainting:

       
      The second one is also an umberhulk I guess (painted by my sister):

      before:

       
      The last one is a gorgon, simplest paintjob but effective I'd say:

      before:
