Dwarf Warriors

Years ago a friend of mine left his plastic dwarf boxed set with me when he left the game. They have been sitting around for a long while until I finally decided to paint up a collection of them with different weapons for use in various role-playing or miniature games.

High Elf Hero

This miniature is an out-of-print Games Workshop High Elf Hero that has had it's headpiece trimmed down to look less phallic. I had originally purchased it for a specific conversion, but never had the time to start it. Instead a player picked this miniature out to use for his Children of the Sun character, so I painted it up for him.

High Elf Shadow Warrior

Yup, yet another gaming miniature. This one was painted up to represent an elven ranger-turned-arcane archer in a old D&D 3.5 game. Traditionally I'm not a fan of the system, but a friend came up with a campaign world I liked that he wanted to run d20 in so I went along with it.

Mordheim Mercenary Sprue Archer

This miniature was assembled from various pieces of the Games Workshop Mordheim Mercenary plastic sprue. The face seems to have turned out well but the miniature is hardly perfect. It's difficult to see the black picking on the fletching from this angle, but it's there. The leather vest is obscured by shadows caused by my lighting - I wasn't able to fix that while photographing the miniature.

Dark Elf Warriors

Years after I stopped playing Mordheim, I assembled and painted a majority of the figures from an old Games Workshop Dark Elf Warrior boxed set that I had originally picked up to use for that game. Although the models are a bit spiky I decided to do a handful of them to have around for use as generic soldiers in fantasy RPGs should the need arise. I painted them up in the same scheme as the rest of my Dark Elves just in case I ever got around to playing again.

Dark Elf Assassin

I originally painted up this figure to use in my Dark Elf Mordheim warband. I was really excited to be able to do him in the black scheme I had in mind; basecoat black, drybrush, and I'd be done! 🙂 The assassin's not perfect, but he was one of my favorite pieces in my collection at the time.

Dark Elf Sorceress

The Dark Elf Sorceress was originally used to represent my Dark Elf Sorceress (shock!) in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As one of my earliest pieces, she really shows my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techniques of the time. As unimpressive as she is now putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then.

Dark Elf Shades

The Dark Elf Shades were originally used to represent heroes in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As some of my earliest pieces, they really show my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techniques of the time. They're remarkably unimpressive compared to my current paint jobs but putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then. It took me a while to come up with the color scheme for my warband but I eventually settled on the blue and black that you see here - I was having success painting blues and the black seemed to help make the army suitably dark.

Dark Elf Corsair Conversion

My converted Dark Elf Corsair was my second attempt at NMM, which I quickly learned photographs better than it looks in person in my mind. He was painted up to serve as my warband leader, and served quite well in the role.  The ninja elf earned himself a reputation on the table.  Maybe my painted figures performed better back then after all.

Dark Elf Blackguard

The Dark Elf Black Guard were originally used to represent Fell Blades in my old Dark Elf Mordheim warband. As some of my earliest pieces, they really show my "basecoat, wash, drybush" techinques of the time. As unimpressive as they are now putting together a cohesive looking force was an accomplishment for me back then.
