Reaper - Klaus Copperthumb, Dwarf Thief - 77479

This model is super easy to paint, however it is quite hard to make it work.
It was a bit of a challenge for me to make model not bland.

Turned out muddy and dirty, perfect!

Reaper - Logrim Battlefury, Dwarf Paladin - 77397

Went for dirty beaten armor and bright fiery garb.
Sword is forever bent due to deflecting a deadly blow form old enemy, the Palastica PakatgGin!
Palastica PakatGin has cut down many, through the years, in their prime.

Could have reforged the blade through BoilingWater/Cooling method, but though its fine as is.
Possible conversion model for future.

Reaper - Horgun Blackfletch, Dwarf Bowman - 03564

This is the very fist guy I painted from Reaper. Old paint job, finished with WoodStain.
Not many dwarfs sport a bow, preferring gunpowder or a crossbow.
Unique model indeed.

Reaper - Herryk, Dwarf Cleric - 77220

Eaelier paint job as well.
Went with Purple/Yellow color scheme, unfortunately WoodStain finish ruined the bright/light paintjob.
Because finish is glossy and oil based, no point in stripping and acrylic wont stay on surface.

A repaint of another one is in order with same color scheme. For now, one off the list.

Reaper - Dwarven Miners - 06040

Got total 10 Miners, 5 with lanterns and 5 with picks.

WoodStain finish worked ok-ish on these guys.
And some conversion work was in order. Just to add variation to same model.

Reaper - Gruff Grimecleaver, Dwarf Pirate - 77133

Freshly finished.
Decent sculpt, and a very easy and enjoyable model to paint.
Easy access to the face and large flat areas for some details.

Reaper - Dwarf Butcher - 77460

Absolutely awesome sculpt!
Not only model is well sculpted, but it appears to be also sculpted specifically for painting it.
Making painting process easy and enjoyable.

A bit different type of a dwarf from other Reaper line in apperance, this guy looks a bit warcrafty

Went with muted color palate, and used mostly washes.

Reaper - Dwarf Brewer - 77461

Again, awesome sculpted model, was easy to paint and allowed to really get into the details.
I am not a good painter, but I think this is the best mini I have painted to date.


Whent with Blue/purple and green color scheme. And pink skin
Gold for highlights

This guy looks warcrafty as well.

I dunno, the keg guy came out pretty awesome if you ask me! Even if he is your best painted mini, he’s really good, but so are quite or few of the other guys. I like how the barrel has different colours in the wood, kinda like it was once painted, but he brews so much it’s faded!. I think the wood stain not being used really helps, the wash guy shows what you can do instead, in my opinion, to better effect!

Keep the dwarves comin!

Thank you!
The barrel cameout great indeed! That was a purple DRY-BRUSH over the entire model, especially barrel and shoes, as if there is a purple light source near by.
The muted wood color on the barrel contrasts nicely with the purple dry-brush, because it is an effective color combination of Yellow/orange-and purple. The ochre wood in this case serves as yellow/orange.

I really tried to make wood-stain work because it had an amazing effect on the red-themed AgeofSigmar dwarf army I own. On those models and with that stain, the models cameout inked perfectly and coated with protective lacquer making them impervious to damage, and look clear from a far, and smell like wooden chess pieces. Only downside was they cameout a bit shiny.
I tried wood-stain on later models, but failed multiple times. I dont know what is wrong, the stain, the plastic, the way details are sculpted... For now, I ditched the wood-stain because I can't make it work.


And I finally got some nice brushes. that helped alot as well

Reaper - Dannin Deepaxe, Female Dwarf - 03363

This mini is modular, where the hands come detached.
Allows a bit of freedom of posing the model, and switching shield arm and axe arm switch places.
However because model is metal the arms need drilling and pinning.

Not the best sculpted model, but its not too bad.
It is not often that you get a simply-clad, un-armored, common, female dwarf. With what appears to be Hide-shield and a wood chopping axe.

Because the character is so simple, I didn't know where to take it painting-wise. Just went with common solid color combination of dark/red-teal.

Reaper - Dwarf Master Of The Hunt - 77572

When I picked up the model I though it was weird name for a dwarf with a pic-axe. And later discovered that not a pic-axe at all, but the worst looking crossbow in history of sculpted crossbows.

When I have two of same model I like to keep one default and convert the other. However in this case the default needed some love in the crossbow department.
The model seems fine at first, but has many little problems with the way it is sculpted or with the way it is molded.

The eyes misaligned is annoying one, strange flat "plates?" in the back of the coat, Mold lines in worst place, ets. I did not expect this model to take that much time.


Color are picked from an idea of having one dwarf with skin lighter than the clothes, and other with skin darker than the clothes.
The paint job is not the best because I just wanted to be done with it, just couldn't get exited halfway through.

Reaper - Dwarf Forge Priestess - 77571

Usually convert the duplicate, however in this case decided to just paint up both. well, did not like original buckle.
Not the best paint job for not the best model.

Whether or not the model is good, your paint work brings out their character. Great to see your continued progress on this hobby log. Always enjoyable to see your dwarfs.

Glad you enjoy it.
My goal was to have painted reaper models in one spot, easy to scroll through and see many different paint schemes and conversions.

One of the better sculpts for sure. These models look much more crisp and detailed in person than in the original pictures.

Always base white for light colors.

Reaper - Gwyddis, Dwarf Valkyrie - 77481
What a weird model... A Valkyrie but with an adventuring backpack. And I could not figure out what those shoulder things suppose to be...?!
Weird wide face... I tried to make it work, few repaints later decided on black gorget to cover extra wide face.
Is it suppose to be an adventurer with weird totem on the back or a demigod with a backpack?
Could not get into the character until clicked on pale face with with purple. Like to think of this character be some sort of energy avatar, makes sense that way, with that totem thing and all

It's fun interesting mildly diverting to go to the Reaper site and check the names on some of the... stranger decisions here. This looks like Gene Van Horne trying to do a Werner Klocke: triangle head; looking down; cheekbones out to here; eyes almost on the sides of the head.

But anyway, you've painted it up well. Great palette choices, well-placed.

Looks like it was meant to be a World of Warcraft style dwarf. You're take on it works just as well. Really enjoy how you painted the hammers. Those rich purples with bright edges convey a sense of energy.

Thanks guys.

I think you guys are right, Gene Van Horne prob went for Warcraft dwarfs/nomes
Contrast and color is my fallback tactic, to hide lack in technique and in patience

Reaper - Ursula, Dwarven Bear Rider - 77353

It looks like this was one piece cast, had multiple mold lines, and wow this one is complex.
By complex I mean it was hard for me to tell what detail is what.
Inspired by bear riders from Heroes M&M 5

Ended up converting both, original plans was to have cavalry for AoS dwarfs from various sources.
I still plan to get the other Ursula, metal one with hand held up, and will keep that one as is and leave these two gals as bodyguards.

Interesting stories could be made to explain away why all missing an eye.

Showing off again i see, seriously the brewery with the keg is one of the best. when i saw it at my FLGS (we have a huge wall of reaper minis) i was like -that is iconic dwarven.

I have used reaper minis for quite a few of my DnD characters, and some i just loved the look of

Are the sculpted faces really that flat on the bear riders? A little disappointing from Reaper, if so. In any case, great job painting in the detail. Bear cavalry dwarfs look great.

Hmm, Just a round ball face, eyes sockets are there with eye lids, nose, mouth. Flatter the surface easier it is to paint
mold lines however, a bit aggressive.

Reaper - Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero - 14143

A very well sculpted model and the metal mold is quite crispy!
Tried 2 things:
1 - Attached model to not cured fresh putty. Result - Meh, maybe saved some time.
2 - Quick painting with:
wash - drybrush
wash - drybrush
selective wash - selective drybrush
And pick out few details like face, hair, metal, weapons, ets. Result - I like it, its not the best, but honestly I can't tell much the difference between things I have painted by hand and things I used a quick wash on.
There is a difference but it is very small IMO. However alot of time is saved this way.
