Nice work on the hunter, solid sculpt and a suitably striking SoB-esque paint scheme

Thank you sir.
I know right! It was not planned though.

I am always trying to come-up with interesting color scheme to make the painting actually interesting.
At first I though to paint this gal in black and white scheme only, because I have not done that yet.
But light clothes felt like it would not fit the character.
And if I am going with black clothes with my (base and wash) technique,
So, if the clothes will be black the skin will be white in contrast
Therefor hair should be black or red to contrast the skin.
But during the paint process I remembered Witcher white hair look, witch hunter theme, and sisters of battle yes, and the character DOES looks like a "Wolf" hunter
So, just made the skin darker to contrast the hair, and left hair white

Might be interesting conversion for a SoB Inquisition Squat hunter

This is definitely a large and long term project. I feel you are moving at a good pace though. I don't know if these dwarves are going into storage as you finish them, or if they are still available, but I would love to see groups shots at regular intervals of time showing how your collection of painted dwarves is growing. I don't know, if every two months would be good, or a different time scale, but I think it would look epic to have every finished dwarf from this project set up in a single photo to show overall progress.

Mixing up colors and doing conversions helps with the bored part for sure!
Yeah, same sculpt, I would not even start lolz

Oh yeah, I have not yet posted my dwarven army, with the Keep, and the reaper dwarfs that are part of that. One of these days I am resuming work on KARAK GARAZ-NGOL There was set backs with led lighting, magnetized floors. Plus, ended up selling some of the best conversions I had few years ago. One of these days! I will make a thread for my main project

Reaper - Borin Ironbrow, Dwarf Adventurer - 07011

Because this guy was special and came with 3 weapons I decided to try some extra painting effort. Just to see what I can do with famed (none metal metal).
I do not know how to blend, but I know how to crosshatch.

Awesome sculpt, and mold! Came with 3 weapon options.
But why pick one weapon when you can spend a day drilling tiny holes, gluing tiny magnets, and sculpting with GrayStuff the damage from the drilling?!

Enjoy.

Great thread!

So many different, yet fitting and individual paintjobs. Would love to see the whole army and the keep once you find the time.

Think I recognize some of the sculpts from long gone times when I regularly would visit a FLGS which had a vast stock of Reaper. Don't think the shop still exists, but a friend of mine should still have all the Reaper werewolves they carried and we had funny dwarves vs. werewolves battles.

Lolz nice, dwarfs and wrerwolves.
Man I still remember your sisters, what an awesome conversions!

Will have to pull up many pictures, dust off the keep, retake some images, photoedit and resume the work. Right now I do not want to do that while Dust SSU is left unfinished.
I always held back, though it was not ready, Maybe next month be good time to launch KARAK GARAZ-NGOL I'll be planning for it.

That is a great sculpt, and a great paintjob as well. If you find the glitter-as-gold comes off a trick is to gently "blob" some dirt cheap clear nail polish on it. That will hold it all in place and give it a sparkle. Don't put too much, though, otherwise it looks like there's a bubble dome around it. Also, if you use it, let it dry for a day or so.

Thanks for the tip, I do have cheap clear nail polish, but the applicator brush is poops.
Had some luck with shiny clear mod-poge, may be that?

I used normal mod-poge for the bulk, and small dabs of zapAgap to keep it on base, I am keen on sealing all in nail polish though.

Reaper - Ivar Dwarf Priest - 77417

Some of these are cool but not without flaw. The details are so many, and mold is not very crisp, result in things blending into A shape.

Is the hammer suppose to be like that? or is it a miscast...
Secretly fist pumping because I like to convert things.

This guy looked like a dark ash-wood priest. Turned out better than i expected

Reaper - Bailey Silverbell - 77072

Interestingly enough, Werner Klocke sculpted both. Is it me or are the leg pose the same, same torso, and ?same face? If yes then very clever! approve!

I seriously have no idea how you guys get pupils for both of the eyes in same exact spot, so both eyes look same. For it its a matter of luck for me, ether both eyes will workout and appear similar, or just retry, retry, retry, give up and call it good enough. Freya did it on SW-gals, major props.

I'm looking forward to seeing your main project
Also,I like your newest additions to your dwarf project. Bailey Silverbell is a mini I own because of how much I like the sculpt. I recognized her before reading. It's also really nice, the extra work you put into the dwarf adventurer, it shows.

Bailey's great. I do eyes the same way as you: retry, retry, retry until happy. But sometimes you are lucky and the first try fits. Getting a Raphael 6/0 also helped.

Thanks man, Yeah Bailey Silverbell is not a dwarf it turns out. However, that halfling looked good enough to be included in proper dwarven ranks.

Ty! It might be my art background aiding me.

Progress.
90% Washes over white primer. I think this technique is growing on me, primarily because of its speed.

Reaper - Shardra, Iconic Shaman - 60180
Digging the ones in metal, the detail is super crisp.

Absolutely amazing sculpture! Not only it is well sculpted but it is actually designed for a painter to paint it! No stupid undercuts, no unnecessary hard to get to details, all details are close on surface and easy to access! Was very enjoyable to paint
Very Few can stand head to head with GamesWorkshop on the quality of sculpts, the design for painters, and the quality of the molds. This one nailed everything flawlessly!
Most of miniature companies and sculptors fail in the design for painters area thinking it is all about how cool the final sculpt will look, FOOLS!

One HUGE DOWNSIDE, Does not really look like a dwarf... But that is Wayne's fault!

Thanks! Margara does look a bit like Wonderwoman in that picture, curious.

The right eye from viewer, the left eye on the model, is slightly inward than the other. It bothered me.

Reaper - Santa Dwarf - 01525
The sku number no longer works for this model.
And for other santa dwarfs (01552, 01577) as well, so reaper must not carry the models anymore, Most perturbatory indeed.

Good model, great detail, was quite easy and fun to paint

Looks like you’ve been busy smashing out the dwarfs mothsniper! My first thought on seeing Margara was “how cool, they made a dwarf version of Wonder Woman”. Great job on Santa Dwarf, old St Nic would be pleased! I wonder if they only appear on their site in December?

Funny, I thought Margara looked kind of like Wonder Woman too, which is definitely not a bad thing. I like the new Santa dwarf, especially the blush effect on the cheeks and nose.
