The way of the Dawi-kin

A goal of Acquiring every single Reaper Dwarf and painting em up.

Master check list has been put together that will be updated with time.

Any duplicate model will receive conversion using Reaper weapons.


I like my check-off lists and achievement progress icons.
Green box indicates the mini is owned, the picture next to model indicates that is has been painted.

Quite the goal for some good minis. What's your motivation to do this? A deep appreciation of dwarves? Rooting for ya, and you've already made decent progress.

Love for all things dwarven indeed.
Initially I was picking up Reaper Dwarfs as a unique Thane option for the AgeofSigmar Dwarf army made of various clans. Painting up each unit, of 10 or so, in different color scheme and have a Thane to match.

At a later time, with sizable dwarf collection, I found me self taking on tasks that do not seem endless, but more reasonable with little bit of time.
Instead of keeping up with new dwarfs models from GW and many other companies, decided to focus on one.

To keep things neat and tidy a check of list to keep track and progress.


Reaper minis are just fun, after Dwarves think sea creatures be good.

Reaper, King Axehelm of Kragmarr

Wanted a dirty worn look on this dwarf kind, and a high contrast in color scheme of white and red.


Made a mistake on this one using wrong type of shade that made everything glossy, had to layer addition shades of different brand to take out the gloss. turned out a bit darker than planned.

Reaper, Dwarven Brewmeister, 02559

Quite a strait forward model to paint.
Did not want crazy colors for this guy.

A variation of royal blue color scheme with gold patterns and closed eye lids could be interesting.

Reaper, Dwarf Royal Weapomaster, 77574

There is nothing royal about this malicious looking guy.
Went for high contrast red/white.

I was thinking of possible conversions, I don't know, this is not the most interesting dwarf model they have for that.

Usually I do not go for bright colors, yet this warrior needed some frost armor! (too much terreria of late)

Brave. There are some good ones...and some real turds in the dwarf minis. Mostly pretty solid though.

Yes I agree. That is why I will try to do conversions on the turds, but still want to have the original.
At some point there is no matter how good your paint skill is, some models are just hard to do anything with.

That is why I consider GW the top dog. Because not only the models look sweet, but they are Stylized by sculptor in a way that makes sense for painting and easy to get brush into the details.

The rest of the gang. Those mugs man, are like half the size of that poor little barrel.
Wanted grouped colors of tans and browns to create tonal contrast instead of use of intense colors.

These are quite easy to paint, good models.

The original model with a bit older paint job, or battle dirt paint job
But with TrueBlood effect paint from GreenStuff ( http://www.greenstuffworld.com/en/inicio/899-true-blood-effect.html )

Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073

This is one of the cooler looking models, even though was a bit hard to paint.
Older paint job, dirty, battle weathered.

Went with Conan the Barbarian face paint.

Reaper - Dwarf Slaver - 77298

Speaking of real turds.
Honestly the worst sculpted miniature for painting I had experience with to date.
And I did not have much experience at all, but still!

With weird man tits, nipple piercing key-chain, and bare butt-cheeks... In addition to not the brightest example of sculpting...

First painted this skin dark and black clothes, looked bad.
Then painted with contrast colors and light skin and green/red palate, looked like poorly painted creepy christmas elf.
Finally repainted the skin with the only thing that could save the abysmal anatomy with my poor painting skill is war paint

The Weapon did not look good in metal, or gold, or rust, So a direction of high contrast paid off. Abyssal Obsidian on teal ivory handle workout well.

It was fun trying to make this guy work for me.

I'll hand it to ya, Moth, you certainly made something palatable out of a silly sculpt. On to better things, I hope? The warpaint definitely saves it.

Built me self lightbox. Will be retaking some old pictures.

One of the better models, easy model to paint, good sculpt.
Various shades of gray and gold color scheme.
I like this one

Rosy cheeks is quite easy to do, and read very well at arms length!

I like this model, despite the fact that I can't do much with that face... will get another one for conversion at a later time.
I coudln't figure out color scheme for this one. I just wanted an enchanted sword and divine mace.

Reaper - Khael Stonekindle, Dwarf Wizard - 77075

One of the better models for sure. Super easy to paint, well sculpted.
Wanted this guy to be a gray-traveler, and he turned out extra dirty and shiny because I used wood-stain to shade and seal the model.

Woodstain does no have the same effect it does on GW models.
Defiantly will do another one with conversion with a better staff.

Pose adds alot of character and story to the model, making painting process more fun.
