Tome of Horrors

Here are the first miniatures I've been able to paint from the Tome of Horrors line (now by Pacesetter).  

The description of the Dire Corby had them listed as Medium so I used smaller bases; they kind of overflow them.  

ToH: Dire Corby
 
ToH: Boneneedle

Grenadier 2008

Finally finished this Grenadier Box set.








Couple of things.  I didn't realize that 7. Thief Climbing and 8. Thief - torch were the same guy.  You can see 8. in the box above.  I would've painted them at the same time get the shades exactly the same.  I guess if he is a pc, hireling, with a ton of table time you may find a circumstance to bust out the climbing mini?

Also, apparently there is another mini that was missing from my set: 6. Thief - sack.  I didn't realize this as I thought the chest had its own insert (see above).  I might try to pick him up on ebay later.

A few more Barrowmaze Miniatures

Getting close to finishing up the Miniatures from the Barrowmaze Kickstarter.  Struggled with my camera a bit but these turned out better than I expected.

Barrowmaze: Mongrelmen

I've never used these guys or encountered them but I've always liked the image in the MM2 that one of these minis (the spear holder with a lobster arm) is modeled after.

A few more thieves

From Grenadier's 2008 box set "Thieves."  


I see the thief on the left as more of a henchman/hireling due to his "common" appearance while the jaunty dwarf thief could serve as a pc or an important npc.  About halfway finished with this box.

More Barrowmaze and some thieves throwing things

First, two more Barrowmaze miniatures.  Whittling down the box set gradually.  I used Agrax Earth Shade on these two guys. Eh.  I really can't tell if it improved them or not. Guess it's a wash, heh heh.

Next are two thieves from Grenadier's 2008 Box.  These guys were dipped in Quickshade and other than being a little shiny, look good.

Fire Elemental and Enchanter

I think these two guys make a pretty good pairing. I've had a few misadventures with dipping lately that won't make the blog because of quality but the Enchanter was dipped and came out great.

The fire elemental was done by following this tutorial: http://hot-lead.org/advance/fire_prac.htm

Mine didn't come out near as well but it came out much better than if I had a go at it on my own.

11-426 Fire Elemental

This fella was familiar though I thought it was from some piece of art that had resonated in my subconscious.  After a quick search I saw he is modeled after a character in a famous movie.
