14524 Valana forgemaiden dwarf as druid


Recommended Posts

I painted up this one as my daughter's PC. Her character is a female dwarf druid. I looked through the whole Reaper catalog and didn't find any of that sort. However I did find Valana. She had a huge hammer. Druids don't like metal all that much so the hammerhead could go, and the handle could become a short staff. She looks more like the description already. The brief given was " Caucasian skin tone, black hair and she wears green clothes".

This is the result.

Any comment or advise is encouraged and welcome.

Admittedly, not everything went as planned in the final stages, but I still think it is good enough for a gaming piece.

I agree...excellent workaround to get a dwarf druid. The details on the backpack, belt, and staff look great. My only suggestion would be to consider a slightly darker skin tone (unless you were just wanting to make a character who is particularly pale). Contrasted against the dark hair, the skin tone ends up looking almost white.

 

Very cool piece.

      She turned out rather well as an addition to my ever-expanding Grump of Dwarves.

      Hi all! How do you do?
       
      It's been a while since I last shared a mini here. I recently converted and painted one for my egyptian-themed Frostgrave warband.
       
      Since the mini is a female and has bare breasts, I am supposed -as per the forum rules- to post links to the pictures instead of displaying them directly in the post. So consider this topic slightly NSFW.
       
      To begin with, here is the mini I started with:
      https://www.reapermini.com/search/yanara https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/01/p1090389.jpg  
      For the conversion, here's what I did:
      Sawed the head off. A brutal surgery but a necessary one. [picture] Replaced the head with a bald one from Statuesque Miniatures. [picture] Filed off the remaining hair with a Dremmel power tool. [picture] Filed off the belt decoration and replace it with an Ankh cross. Resculpted the piece of fur on her shoulders and upper back. Cut off the top of her staff and replace it with an egyptian staff decoration (a double ostrich feather ornament)  
      The result after the conversion: https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/06/p1090830.jpg
       
      After priming in off-white: https://legolemquireve.files.wordpress.com/2022/06/p1090832.jpg
       
      And finally, the painted mini: [Front Picture] / [Side Picture 1] / [Side Picture 2] / [Back Picture] / [Close-up Picture]
       
      If you want to see the pictures directly, you may visit my blog post (although it's written in french): https://legolemquireve.wordpress.com/2022/06/29/sandgrave-djesa-la-thaumaturge/

      *********************
       
      Young, Beautiful but foremost...deadly.
      Kalista served in the Lion's, the elite guard of the High King himself, but when she refused his "attention" she found herself in the Arena.
      And there to the King's dismay, she not just survived, she won, over and over again and she became so populair that in the end the King had no choice than to set her free to please the crowd.
       
      These days Kalista is for hire as a mercenary, she leads caravans or nobles safely to their destination among other "jobs" ...
      Her reputation is often enough to secure a safe passage.
      And should some robber not know her? Well....what happens then is just adding to her reputation.
       
      There are rumours that Kalista even volunteers to fight in the Arena again but only for the right price.
