Thanks mate! It is those iconic comic book style lips that sell the wonder woman look!
I wonder that too, perhaps, perhaps not, because this one is also not in the store.

I just wished Margara would look like that from all the angles, not just that one, alas.
When I got the Santa model I though it was silly and was going to convert it to a dwarven nursery keeper or something. But last minute decided to just paint it strait up as it is, and was worth it.


Reaper - Anniversary Ametrine Earthlyte Dwarf - 01611

Awesome model, was super fun and much easier to paint than I though.
I think this is my best female face yet, thanks to a very good sculpt allowed me to paint in the corner of the mouth

Just like with santa dwarfs, this model is also not in the reaper store anymore.
I do not know, but wonder if these are limited edition seasonal models or something.

Back to project.

Dwarf Fighter, Durin - 14465
This guy is quite similar to the Dwarf Mancatcher, Naturally wanted to paint them in same color scheme, but then changed my mind.
Should of pinned before painting, lesson learned.

Good little sculpt. This guy would fit well into world of Conan, with that classic sword helmet, even the way the face and beard was sculpted.

Think so.
Just a side comparison between the Old dwarf and a New dwarf.
That is a huge difference.

Easy to paint, good sculpt. I like that the hairs are individually sculpted into shapes rather than just scribe lines like in the old sculpts.

One dwarf from the set done. Noticed I forgot to paint hair tie and wash the silver on the chainmail.
They list individual names, but never sign them to the model so I can only guess what name goes with this one. A leader, perhaps this one is Baran?

One of the older ones.
This one was metal, but not fun to paint. This guy is very small, with tiny details that is not crisp, and the crossbows... Reaper sculptors never made good crossbows.
Done with this one, moving on.

This thing is awesome. Now I see why people love airbrush so much.


This was the fastest pained model yet. 5 mins. Done. Will take better pictures. Also have to finish base.

Very fun and easy to paint. Used some rust pigments for this one too


Fastest painted model in the world! Airbrushed from top with light blue and then bit of white, painted base and done.

fun and easy to paint too.

Good to see you’re back on the dwarf trail. Some really cool ones you've painted recently. The boar rider is my favourite, but the crypt and ghost are great too

Gobert, Glad to be back! And thank you.

I just realized that for the Crypt of the Dwarf King Boxed Set's characters have assigned names, all that info is on the back of the box... that I threw away. Luckily there is a small grainy image of the back on the site.
This one is Toran Bronzebeard. Good sculpt, tiny miscast in beard, overall good and fun mini to paint. These new dwarfs remind me of the dwarf models from AgeofWonders3

Everliving Flame

Is clear and empty inside, perfect for an LED light. Decided to make a small mold for this piece.

First cast, not too bad, removed the flame and glued a piece of cool clay rock from local camp grounds.

Decided to paint 3 lads at same time. Noticing imperfections with casting on these. They ran the mold line over beards for some reason, making cleaning difficult.

Nice job replicating the plinth, I hope we get to see an led lit flame too! These guys from the dwarf king set are really characterful, with paint jobs to match

Everliving Flame and 3 dwarven zombie thanes

As I work on this set, more mistakes I see with sculpting and molding. The sculpt design has not been done by someone who paints minis on regular basis. Lots of undercuts that are hard to get to. Some 3D fakery happening by hiding anatomy or detail under beard shape. And misaligned cast where mold line not only goes over the detailed beard braids but also is offset a mm or 2, can be seen in the details like bracelets that do not align. In addition, these zombies are not very interesting, no weapons, no action poses, They just look goofy, like 3 old bums standing in a bathroom line after some bad burritos.

The Arch is left and leds from EvanDesigns to install.

I have good LED setup from the EvanDesigns
The flickering lights look super cool, although the plinth it self needs few coats of paint because light shines right through it.
Problem is that the led lights are a bit too big for that small space, and the 3V battery will require considerable base to house everything.

I also have switches and light Sensor that will turn on the light at night.

Battery is not a good option for such a tiny Plinth. I think better option would be to hold on to it and use it for larger diorama that will use multiple lights all wired to single 3V adapter.

And the arch is done.

Using freshly acquired airbrush in a test of double priming using 2 tones to create shadow gradients for the washes.
In attempt to speed up paint the process.

This guys looks too intense for a humble sausage maker.
Also, there are no tags like (Dwarf or Dagger) for this model on reaper's site, their site is already a headache to navigate. And it looks a bit worse and worse every year.

great job on him, definitely communicates the old adage "you don't want to know how they make the sausage".

As for Reaper, I wish they'd go to a wiki system for tags like we use here, I think the community would do a much better job keeping them up then the admins. I went nuts trying to find the flying throne cyber guy who was not listed under doctor, scientist, cyborg, or anything else I could think of.

Id rather not deviate from (dwarfs) otherwise this project will never be done. But these guys look like they fit the dwarf look well. Also, I have no idea why the ladle is in 2 parts.

The two halflings look like a great distraction. The second one (who I assume is Chop) looks rather maniacal brandishing his cleaver! Thorondil is a very classic sculpt and excellently painted too. Thanks for the goobertown link, it gave me some ideas for the hordes of gobbos I have laying around
