Hi all you Reaper cats and kittens!
So today a neat little figure, a Halfling Tiefling, from Stonehaven Miniatures, sculpted by their owner, Mike Evans. This one was released with their Kickstarter a few years back that was mostly dedicated to all sorts of interesting halfling models.
I decided on white hair just to give some nice contrast to the pink skin, and then mostly purples and pinks mixed with reds and oranges.
and then here, just for fun and a size comparison is a Reaper Tiefling I did a little while back, Fillyjonk. I kind of did some similar things colorize, even though Fillyjonk's skin was more reddish to start out with and the little hobbit more pink. And after having painted both of these, I'm really looking forward to Bob Ridolfi's Kickstarter tieflings! Wondering what other colors I might use with them a year or so from now.
So anyhoos, enjoy!
Good evening Reaper folks!
Tonight another Stonehaven Miniatures figure, a Gnome Ranger with a crossbow. A fun and quite petite figure and the funnest part of this was was choosing hair color, hope you guys like him!
Really starting to get into painting Stonehaven, some very fun and expressive figures, full of personality!
Butch "Killer" Davis (50094) is a beautiful clean sculpt, good and pulpy without being overdone. He also gave me an excuse to go ahead and complete a boxing/wrestling ring bit of terrain--it had been rattling around in my brain for some years. And now, with a box lid, some nails, some electrical tape, and a few bits of string, the dream has become reality.
"I've earned my stripes, and the poor fool in the other corner's gonna be seeing stars!"
I knew sculpting a side of beef ribs would be handy more than once. Good training.
Click for a turnaround with Price the Trainer (originally a Groundskeeper from Artizan; I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this dude)
Price's training style is...eccentric. (Hence the shovel.) Very big on the principle "prepare for everything." As such, he favors outlandish sparring partners with exotic styles.
"Larry the Leprechaun," a vicious bareknuckle flyweight, for example. What if your opponent is hard to reach and nimble, a.k.a. 'the Oddjob Problem'?
Or what if your opponent uses A CHAIR OH NOOOO! and employs the ropes in bizarre high-flying stunts? It's EL DIABLOOOOOOOOOO! (50035, last seen in the Weird West)
Or how about a taller opponent with a bigger off-limit strike zone?! Think fast, Butch! It's La Mujer Increible! (50212, also seen previously)
Managed that? Good start. Now let's put you up against a challenge. The brutish man-mountain Mister Hyde! (Modified Clay Golem, 02706)! Taller, stronger, bigger, meaner. Good luck!
Oh, these were fun to photograph.

The ring itself. In retrospect I should have had the string corners wrapping around the inside of the posts, but eh, not bad for 20 minutes and some junk,

Just posting some older stuff from years past while I work on a larger product. Definitely not my best work, and definitely not a great mini (there weren't any lips sculpted in...come on!). I do like the way the hair and armor turned out.
