Hello everybody. I'm a long time fan of this community and in the last I was a terrible WH and Confrontation player. I never won a battle, but I always loved to paint and craft new characters. I have recently returned to this hobby, so here my modest works. All made for fun or for d&d nights.
First of all some kitbash: Gnomes.

And now something completely different, a tomb king giant or hierotitan(ess).

Toys again, I wanted some critter for my D&D nights, so I bought some cheap animals. Still, some sculpts are very nice.

More D&D, but with a lot of warhammer in it. Here a classic D&D giant, the ettin.

It started as a Gormiti toy (Dedalus)


I cut the limbs and the head off and beefed the body with Andrea Sculpt.

I changed the hands, sculpt over the feet to make some pointy boots and add a couple of Warhammer ogre heads I got on e-bay ages ago.
Then I glued back the limbs, modified with some more putty to show the muscles and add some fur and straps.




After a day or so I add some more details with green stuff and various bits. The... diaper, some shields as an armor, trophies and a second weapon. The flat round buckles on the belt are cutted sprues.





It took me 2 days to paint this bastard, I made the skin 3 times, and in the end I'm not happy with it, but I'm tired to try.
The toy plastic is impossible to paint, only after 5 layers of paint I finally manage to finish the boots.
I was wondering if I can add some tattooes on the back, but I'm afraid to make a mess.

I'm loving this thread. Your use of toys as the base musculature and form for miniatures is completely brilliant! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with now.

Thanks, here one more, I think this is one of the first toy conversion I did, so it's not my best sculpt.
It was originally a Dinofroz toy, a chubby little t-rex.

Orcs and goblins were my army in the past, but I never finished to paint all of it.

Btw, here my army, painted 15 years ago














Yeah, this is an ogre, but I needed a orc leader.




And a random pirate orc I made more recently


A lot more, but I have not photos of them.

Still loving the conversions, your old orks look great, nice collection. The 'albino' ork you painted recently is cool too, nice idea.

D&D, again.

Same technique, a mix of toys and some sculpt. The "recipe" is: main body, gormiti toy, legs, another gormiti arms, head from a t-rex bag of dinosaurs, side legs from a spider toy .

It's an hook horror, but maybe it can work as a chaos demon.

That cannon is excellent and the dwarf sculpts are impressive.

Time to make some order.
I'm full of old Bretonnia archers and knights, plus some random Empire bits that I glued into an unit.
Plus some random human miniatures and a couple of good bretonnian goblins (why not).

So here the lot. What I'll do with it, no idea, maybe I'll paint some of them and the rest to eBay.





Converted flag bearer.



Mercenaries



I halso have at least 5 of these knight without an horse, so I'm looking for alternatives.



No.


Nope.


Magestic.


Maybe.

Any ideas for the units colors? I'll usually go with white-red for the Empire and red and blue for Bretonnia, but I'm open to suggestions.

Loving this blog! So much creativity going on in one thread, really inspiring. I find that I'm always trawling through the dollar shops and toy stores now looking for potential critters for DnD as well.

Can't really help you on the paint colours, though I did always like the split or quartered schemes for Bretonnians. I remember seeing an army of black and yellow ones in a WD battle report years and years ago that stayed with me.

Lovely old range - sad to see them get swallowed up in the new edition.

Keep up the good work - I will be following along here, and probably stealing some ideas as well!

Love the Knights on various mounts. My fave is the Walrus lol.

How about getting some small dinosaur figures to put them on?
