Dire Boar from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dire Boar  -  Posted: February 6, 2017  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Another gian animal, this time it's a dire board. It's pretty goofy, and so I painted it bringht and flashy to stay with the theme of the old-school goofiness. It's pretty fun!


Saber Tooth Tiger from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Saber Tooth Tiger  -  Posted: January 9, 2017  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
I had a look around at a few different examples of the saber-toothed tiger paint schemes, and decided to go with a cross between a North-American Couger and a Tiger. I guess the saber tooth wasn't really all that much like either of them, but it was a North-American cat... So yeah, a Couger with wide brown stripes!


Severic the Cleric from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Severic the Cleric  -  Posted: October 10, 2016  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
I converted/painted this figure for a campaign that I'm running. One of the players is playing a muscle-y cleric with a pole arm and a full set of plate armour. I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, but I'm still figuring out how to take pictures in the new office...


Vampire Spawn of Strahd from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Vampire Spawn of Strahd  -  Posted: July 7, 2016  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This is one of those Reaper miniatures that I really like. I bought it for my Ravenloft-based adventure, but after receiving it, I'm pretty sure it's a 'modern' vampire spawn. It still fits the bill though! I'm happy with the dulled out character of the paint scheme.


Evil Spectator from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Evil Spectator  -  Posted: November 24th, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
These WIzards of the Coast plastic D&D figures aren't too bad, but they are very utilitarian: they do what you need them to do, and not much more. this one is pretty good, although the eyes have sculpted irises, which makes it touch to add detail... But overall, I'm happy with this one!


bats in a bat swarm from Games Workshop painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

bats in a bat swarm  -  Posted: November 24th, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Games Workshop
These old GW figs are funny... I remember back in the early 90s I bought two packs of the bat swarms, each pack contained five bats. I put two figs to a base, with one base having three though so I could maximize the figures. This gave me no less than seven 40mm by 40mm bat swarm bases! Yes, my friends made fun of me :)

bats in a bat swarm  -  Posted: November 24th, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Games Workshop
The old plastic bats were purchased years after they'd been discontinued; my local game store had finally decided to clean out some old junk they'd been sitting on for probably ten years, so I couldn't resist picking these up for a very reasonable price! Despite their identical poses, they are pretty cool still!

More plastic bats, still liking the figures, but I did rush the faces on these ones a little!

bats in a bat swarm  -  Posted: November 24th, 2015  -  Manufacturer: GamesWorkshop
Some of the faces of these figs are pretty goofy, but some are pretty cool! The bat on the left might be my least favourite pose, but the one on the right is possibly one of my favourites of the bunch. To think how things have changed in the hobby these days. You rarely see goofy, over-dramatized miniatures anymore!

And the final set, I couldn't resist adding a jack-o-lantern. THese will play the role of stirges for D&D, but I imagine they'll make their way into my undead army at some point as well!


The Green Dragon Venomfang from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

The Green Dragon Venomfang  -  Posted: October 27, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
This is easily one of the best Wizards of the Coast figures I've painted to date. It has a great amount off detail - not too much, not too little - and a lot of character. Also, the mould looks good, not too soft, just sharp enough.


Dragon and Fighter Face Off from Games Workshop and Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dragon and Fighter Face Off  -  Posted: October 27, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Games Workshop and Wizards of the Coast
This picture is really just for scale. This is the scale of a young dragon. It's 'large' according to the monster manual, but it's a very powerful 'large' creature.


Bugbear King from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Bugbear King  -  Posted: October 27, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This is a big figure. Very, very big. It is basically as big as a creature can be and still be medium sized! I like this figure a lot. These Reaper bugbears are some nice bugbears!


Bugbear/Orc Archers from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Bugbear/Orc Archers  -  Posted: October 27, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
These are more orcs painted as bugbears from the Wrath of Ashardalon Dungeons and Dragons game! I feel these figures have too many details, most of which are too soft anyway! Not all that fun to paint.


Bugbear Clan from Reaper Miniatures and Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Bugbear Clan  -  Posted: October 27, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures and Wizards of the Coast
All of the bugbears together. It's interesting how different the scale is... But it works fine!


Tom Kruse, ranger of the north from Games Workshop painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Tom Kruse, ranger of the north  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Games Workshop
One of my D&D players runs a dexterity-based fighter. I don't know why the dex-based fighter is even an option to be honest, they always end up giving up the bow and just becoming the meat-shield, damage-dealing, sword-weilding that fighters were meant to be! In any case, I painted this one like a medieval soldiers-turned-adventurer! The cloak trim turned out terribly, but that fits the character, who comes from a poor background and so wouldn't know if he purchased a poor-quality cloak trim!


Tom Kruse, ranger of the north from Games Workshop painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Tom Kruse, ranger of the north  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Games Workshop
This is a funny one... I can't seem to figure out how to take pictures of the forced-perspective village with figures in it... the background is so white that it messes with the white ballance... But the funny thing about this one was that I took it before I painted on the metallics! Note the black chainmail! Still, I ended up liking the picture in the end, so I thought I'd post it.


Owlbear from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Owlbear  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
I finally figured out what an owlbear was: it's a big, flightless bird. I always thought the idea of a cross between a bird and a bear was goofy, but really, an owlbear is really just a large, flightless bird that happens to resemble a bear... In any case, it was fun to paint!


Chthon or Grick from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Chthon or Grick  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Fun little figure to paint, but I don't think I'll use the dark green-to-yellowish-green highlight scheme again. This looks like it's supposed to be a grick, and evilish monster of the underdark.


Black bear from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Black bear  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
I have a druid, I need a bear. Three of these came in the D&D board game, and I decided to make one of them a blackbear, one a brownbear, and one a grizzly. This is a very large blackbear!


Grizzly bear from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Grizzly bear  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
This one bear is painted as a grizzly bear. Drybrushing for the win!


Snakes from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Snakes  -  Posted: September 25, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
Now, these are figures from the D&D board game series... Not my favourite figs, and not a very good paint job... Why did I even post these here?!? :)


Adran the Wizard from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Adran the Wizard  -  Posted: August 8, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This is a fun wizard with possibilities! I love the flapping book pages that give the figure motion, while the rest of the figure looks still... Still and deadly! I'mace happy with how this one turned out.


Adran the Wizard from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Adran the Wizard  -  Posted: August 8, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
A figure from the Wrath of Ashardalon board game, it will play the role of a bugbear. That being said, the detail was soft and too numerous. It wasn't a great pleasure to paint but I'm still okay with how it turned out.


Adran the Wizard from Wizards of the Coast painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Adran the Wizard  -  Posted: August 8, 2015  -  Manufacturer: Wizards of the Coast
Another figure from the Wrath of Ashardalon board game, it will play the role of a bugbear. That being said, the detail was soft and too numerous. It wasn't a great pleasure to paint but I'm still okay with how it turned out.

Tyanta, Master of Ravens from Valiant Enterprises painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Tyanta, Master of Ravens  -  Posted: August 16, 2013  -  Manufacturer: Valiant Enterprises
I had a lot of tourble picking a colour scheme for this one. Given the crows, I wanted it all to be black and skin, and that's it. But that's pretty lame of course, just two colours... So in a bid to avoid painting Hobbit dwarves I decided to give it a try. I decided to paint black using the old comic-book method of highlighting the black using blues. Also crows tend to have some blue/green in their feathers as well. I'm happy with how it turned out.


Dark age dog handler from Gripping Beast Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dark age dog handler  -  Posted: March 23, 2013  -  Manufacturer: Gripping Beast Miniatures
I've had this guy for years... back in 2005 I needed some hounds and so it came with a pack of hounds. I never needed the fig. In 2010 I needed a hound handler and I prepped it for painting, but alas my D&D player decided he wanted a more buff fig. So finally I painted this one up. Not sure I'll ever use it, but hey.


Dark age dog handler from Gripping Beast Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dark age dog handler  -  Posted: March 23, 2013  -  Manufacturer: Gripping Beast Miniatures
And here's the fig with its original hounds and a few other hounds. Perhaps there's room for it in my dark-age armies, or somewhere else.


Female Roman Warrior from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Female Roman Warrior  -  Posted: December 10, 2012  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
I picked this figure up just because I liked it so much. I didn't paint it for years because the non-metallic metal intimidated me too much. Now that it's done, I'm really happy with it.


Female Roman Warrior from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Female Roman Warrior  -  Posted: December 10, 2012  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Over all, I'm very happy with this, but you can see the differential in effort between the front of the shield and the back in terms of blending. Well, I came through when it counted I guess :)


Elf Ranger with Bow from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Elf Ranger with Bow  -  Posted: October 3, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
I bought this figure because it came with the jaguar I painted back almost exactly one year ago (October 4, 2010) in fact. So, because I had no use for it and because I didn't need it anyway, it saw primed and half painted for a year until I finally painbted it! I am sure it will come in handy in a D&D or character-based mini game are some point though.


Minotaur from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Minotaur  -  Posted: May 9, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This figure went together really quickly. It's the first largish creature I've painted for a while, and it was fun. I am pretty happy with it. It is a little monochrome, but I think it works for this fig. The one thing about this fig is that it's pretty unrealistic in the manhood department, no? I mean, I've seen horses and bulls, and they are pretty well hung, but this guy?


Dire Wolf from Unknown painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dire Wolf  -  Posted: May 9, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Unknown
A dire wolf here, on its own integrated base. A very nice figure, easy and enjoyable to paint! I went with the brown and off-white colour scheme. I am happy with it, but it didn't really capture the true wolf look... I'll try something different next time...


Dire Wolf from Unknown painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dire Wolf  -  Posted: May 9, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Unknown
This is the second wolf that I painted as part of a group of four. I had had these for a while, found the need for a single dire wolf, so I decided to paint them all together! I really like this pose, very good for an animal companion or just another wolf in the pack.


Dire Wolf from Unknown painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dire Wolf  -  Posted: May 9, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Unknown
Another dire wolf. The one came with the nice integrated base, which worked extremely well. I like the look on the face of this wolf, it's very much a cartoon intelligence I think.


Wolf Animal Companion from RAFM Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Wolf Animal Companion  -  Posted: May 9, 2011  -  Manufacturer: RAFM Miniatures
This is an old-school sculpt, based on an American Nickle. It's a wolf, but it's small, and friendly looking, but that's cool. Wolves get the short end of the stick most of the time!


Panther - Leopard from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Panther - Leopard  -  Posted: October 4, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Druids... I am glad that I'm running a D&D 3.0 campaign, since in 3.0 a druid has to pick a single animal and stick with it! Imagine if I had to paint up any number of animals on the druid shape-change list? I wouldn't... I would refuse... All right, that's not at all true, and I would happily paint up droves of animals :) As I intend to do for the summon animal companion spell... In any case, my female druid, having reached fifth level, can now change into a leopard! It's my first leopard, and I'm pretty happy with it... But I think I would try to do a better job on colour and spots next time!


Narthalyssk, Dragon from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Narthalyssk, Dragon  -  Posted: September 20, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
On a 50mm base, this is a pretty big dragon... This is actually based for D&D, but it should have been put on a 60mm so it could also be used for HotT, or a 40mm base so that it could be used for 15mm HotT... In any case, I got this dragon from a buddy of mine in a trade and I figured I'd use it for a young dragon for some D&D action, and now I finally am! I've only had it for a year or two ;) This is supposed to be a black dragon, but painting all black wasn't going to happen. Also, I went with a soft whitish deal, as opposed to a cold gray-white. I am pretty happy with it.


Narthalyssk, Dragon from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Narthalyssk, Dragon  -  Posted: September 20, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
The dragon again from the other side. The pose is really based on a low front attack. This should make it work well for D&D and HotT or 15mm HotT since that's likely where the enemy will be! Problem is, it's tough to see the face details.


Narthalyssk, Dragon from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Narthalyssk, Dragon  -  Posted: September 20, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
The back view shows that snazzy, snake-like tail that I enjoyed painting! This dragon will definitely see some action in my HotT High-Elf army I think... I just need a sabot base that will extend it 0.5cm on each side to give it a leagal base!


Turanil Elf Paladin from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Turanil Elf Paladin  -  Posted: September 14, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
A character in my D&D campaign found a magic sword and some magic dragon-scale armour. So, I had to update the figure. The old figure just wasn't going to cut it anymore. Actually, when I originally got the figures for this character, I got the other one and this one. I imagined something like this might happen, so I painted it up. I went with a dull red, as opposed to the insanely bright read I typically paint. I also decided to paint some non-metallic metal again. This figure is one of my best I think, and I still cut a fair number of corners... It was fun to paint for sure and I'm quite happy with it... I think it kinda looks like Elrond from the Lord of the Rings movies as well!


Loryn Stormblade from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Loryn Stormblade  -  Posted: September 14, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
I started this miniature in late autumn 2008 by doing the cloak. Mid-summer 2009 I did the skin and eyes. Only in the past few days did I finish off the rest. Why you ask? Partly because I stopped painting single figures to sell after the female hoplite, but partly because this figure is a tough one. The cloak is inspirational, but once you paint that, everything else is overly detailed and lacking character... I blame the concept, not the sculpter who realized the concept perfectly! Oh well, it's still a cool figure, and now that it's done, it's likely going to round out my HotT high elves by using a sabot base!


Mounted druid conversion from Reaper and Harlequin Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Mounted druid conversion  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper and Harlequin Miniatures
This figure started life as Reaper Miniatures Ophelia, Daughter of the Whip, which was a female warrior on foot, and a random barbarian horse from Harlequin miniatures. It was an easy-ish conversion. I swapped the whip for the sword that you see, removed the dagger and moved the hand into a riding pose, and then sculpted the cloak. I am uite happy with this one! It is the mounted version of the female druid on foot that I did earlier this year.


Ebob-sculpted hounds from Crusader Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Ebob-sculpted hounds  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Crusader Miniatures
These hounds are going to be used to round out the collection of hounds that the other druid in my D&D campaign will eventually collect throughout the campaign. Here are three of the hounds sculpted by Ebob for Crusader miniatures. They paint up very quickly.


Ebob-sculpted hounds from Crusader Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Ebob-sculpted hounds  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Crusader Miniatures
More hounds for the druid, who will eventually require nine hounds and then a tenth to represent his woodland form. There are only two poses of hounds in this pack.


Ebob-sculpted hounds from Crusader Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Ebob-sculpted hounds  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Crusader Miniatures
The last two hounds from Crusader miniatures. I really like these for sure. Note though that the stretched hound doesn't fit on the smaller base, and had to be slightly converted to fit on the 28mm washer that it is on in this picture! I would get them again if I needed some, but I think they are equially as good as the Gripping Beast hounds.


Irish Hounds from Crusader and Gripping Beast Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Irish Hounds  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Crusader and Gripping Beast Miniatures
Here is the entire set of ten hounds. Among the crusader hounds are the two Gripping Beast hounds that I had previously. They match well scale-wise and add some pose variation. Can you pick out the GB figs?


Irish hound handler from Crusader Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Irish hound handler  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Crusader Miniatures
This figure is one of the hound handlers that came with the irish hound pack. I figured I would paint it right away before getting swollowed up by the unpainted figure pile :) It will, no doubt, play the role of some D&D hooligan or henchmen in the future! Because it doesn't really have any weapons out, it could easily play a civilian type, which often comes in handy!


Irish hound handler from Crusader Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Irish hound handler  -  Posted: July 5, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Crusader Miniatures
The second hound handler that came with the Irish hounds. The dubious historical validity of the mohawk hairstyle makes this figure the perfect D&D hooligan type! What foolish footpad would try to rob a group of player characters? Certainly this one!


Highland Archer from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Highland Archer  -  Posted: April 12, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This is the finished version of the archer druid figure! A few pictures later you'll see the WIP version. I think this one ended up pretty well with the striped tunic deal and the tattoos. I think these tattoos worked better than the ones on my Picts because I highlighted the tattoos according to where the skin highlights should be. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this figure!


Highland Archer from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Highland Archer  -  Posted: April 12, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Another picture of the archer-druid, this time with his two trusty hounds! The character concept is a hunter with hounds in the old celts of Ireland paradigm. By ninth level, this character will have a pack of nine hounds and will himself be able to turn into one!


Irish Hunter from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Irish Hunter  -  Posted: April 9, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This is actually a work in progress. I wanted to take a picture of the basically done figure now before the celtic/pictish tattoos went on the skin and the stripes went on the cloak! I think if it were solely up to me I would leave it as is, but it's for someone else. It's great really, since these requirements facilitate me pushing my boundries! Still, here is the fig before the detailing!


Ninja from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Ninja  -  Posted: March 1, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
When I got this miniature, the person I painted it for said 'black'. That's it, he wanted it black. Black is hard, not terribly hard because it is tough to paint, but it's like painting the entire figure any other single colour. The problem is, there are no 'shades' of black. To deal with that, I added some dark red. Anyway, here it is. I am quite happy with it!


Druid from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Druid  -  Posted: February 17, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
You don't see a lot of druids. Well, at least I don't. This one was a lot of fun to paint once I got my head around which colours I would use. It's basically an autumn palette with a concentration on the red side of it. A little accent on the necklace and blammo, done. Note that the sword is painted brown; apparently druids can't use metal weapons and so they have metal-equivalent weapons made from wood. Also, I interpreted the bird on the top of the staff as being part of the wood carved on the staff. Overall I really like this model


Elven Sniper from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Elven Sniper  -  Posted: February 17, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Another elf with a bow! This one was painted to match the druid featured previously. Not so natural maybe, wearing metal and with some no-nonsense green mixed in with the red. Overall though I'm pretty happy with it. The cloak turned out well and I think I'm finally getting the hang of eyes in 28mm! I was also happy with the bow, especially considering it is only two colours!


Female Druid from RAFM Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Female Druid  -  Posted: February 17, 2010  -  Manufacturer: RAFM Miniatures
This figure is a female druid, I do believe it's from RAFM miniatures. I figured I would never paint it, since it's just a bit too generic to fit anywhere well. But alas, D&D adventures seem to create a lot of need for figures, and so here it is. She was supposed to have something in the right hand, but I am not sure what it was, and I wasn't sure what would fit character wise... A staff? A mace? A sword? I amy eventually add something at some point, which means of course that I never will ;) I also tried a different red than my usual and was pretty happy with how it turned out!


 from Fenryll Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Posted: February 17, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Fenryll Miniatures
This one was a blue resin generic character type fig that I figured I would never get to. It's the perfect cleric though, so I should have figured I might get around to it! I needed a cleric for some D&D action, and I figured this would fit the bill, but I ended up using a witch figure instead, but it's still good that I painted this one up! It's one less figure to paint! Anyway, I liked the simplicity of this one, and overall I am very happy with it... Everything except perhaps the red shoes :)


 from Fenryll Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Posted: February 17, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Fenryll Miniatures
This is another of those blue resin figures that I got a while ago. Originally it had a sword in its right hand and its left hand was merely a fist. The sword broke... I wasn't sure if I would ever paint it, given that it looks like it should be a barbarian, with only underwear and some armour on the front. But, I needed a guy with a giant, risty scyth, and so here he is! Overall I think he turned out smashingly!


Skeleton from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Skeleton  -  Posted: February 8, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
So, this is another of the skeletons that I repainted from my old Warhammer days. It was fun to repaint, and even after painting seven of these exact figs (with a couple of head swaps) I am still pretty keen on them! They're pretty cool! This one sports a Games Workshop plastic skeleton head.


Skeleton from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Skeleton  -  Posted: February 8, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Here is the exact original version of the figs with no modifications. The top knot made this figure very obvious... Especially when I had ten or so of them! That being said, it's still pretty cool, and I like the jawless skull!


Skeleton from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Skeleton  -  Posted: February 8, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Same as the previous, except I repositioned the head slightly and swapped out the sword with a spear... I should have thrown a few shields on the spear-weilding figs... oh well, it's still a nice fig in my opinion!


Skeleton from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Skeleton  -  Posted: February 8, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Another original fig, with a re-posed head. I wonder how well that skeleton could handle that bastard sword there...


Skeleton from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Skeleton  -  Posted: February 8, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This one sports a head carefully removed from a chaos tank spike spru... I went with it because of the hair... It's hair, but it's not a top knot! The only thing that bugs me about this is the apparent eye in the head... Eye's don't stick around in corpses, they're the first things to go... So, I went with the onyx stone in the eye socket idea for this, considering that is what is required to raise skeletons in D&D 3.0!

Another bastard sword weilding, GW head swapped version of this skeleton! This is the last one I have so far, but I will likely paint up the rest as well (only three more of these figs left), but not for a while I imagine.

Here's the whole group of skeletons together... In spite of the fact that they are all the exact same fig, they turned out pretty well, and look not too uniform. They should keep me in the money for skeleton skirmishers for some time! And, these, along with my undead Hordes of the Things army figs, could eventually be used together for Wargammer action if I ever see fit to go that way again!

This was fun... One of my old skeletons from my early 90s warhammer days. I did pull off it's original head and replace it with a head from the first set of plastic skeletons from Games Workshop... I like the head, imagining that it's jaw and neck weren't properly re-animated and so they just sorta hang lifelessly... I also replaced the two-handed sword with a spear. Overall, I really like this fig... but I have seven more exact figs (more or less) to paint, so we'll see how much I like it after that!


Sand Ogre from Fenryll Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Sand Ogre  -  Posted: February 1, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Fenryll Miniatures
This is a resin fig I got from a buddy that came in a light green-blue sorta colour... But, I figured it made a great ogre, and since I needed a sand ogre, here it is. I am happy with it, and I figure if this one curled up on the ground in the sand, you might think it was a rock! I'm pretty happy with it.


Female Viking from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Female Viking  -  Posted: July 13, 2009  -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
Oksana, Viking Shield Maiden. When I first saw this I thought it was awesome. A viking woman! Not only that, but aside from being pantlessed and wearing a horned helmet she is a pretty good historical fit! She's even really big, bigger than my other viking women, so she'd make an excellent warlord or something. I am extremely happy with the way this figure turned out as well. Note the face... Interesting story. After trying to paint the right eye four times, I realized there was a problem with the sculpt/cast, and that it would never work. So, what to do? Well, assumed she took a first or shield boss to the eye and it is now swollen and damaged! I'm happy with how it turned out. The Shield is not a decal either and it looks kinda weird because there are these metal bands on it... I should have filed them off...


Frost Giant from Ral Partha circa 1979 painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Frost Giant  -  Posted: November 24, 2008  -  Manufacturer: Ral Partha circa 1979
This giant is a 1979 Ral Partha giant. I got my hands on it in a trade that I did not too long ago (November 2007 apparently, it's Nov 2008 now). It's a fantastic sculpt, very characterful. It is however a true 25mm giant, and so it isn't extremely large like the later stuff, but it fits well with the pseudo historical stuff like Beowulf and Grendel sorta deal. It was a pleasure to paint!

For scale, you can see how small this giant actually is. At about twixe the size of a 28mm historical viking, it makes an impressive opponent!

This is the little terrain piece I did for that Helena of Troy miniature. A nice little piece, one of the most characterful pieces that I've done to date I think.

I wanted to paint this fig from the first time I laid eyes on it. There is so much to do with the greek hoplite look: bronze nmm, shield design, crested helmet... After much effort, I have to say this is likely one of (if not the) best minis I've ever done. Quite happy with it.


Cleric with scythe from Reaper Miniatures painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Cleric with scythe  -    -  Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures
This fig was a pleasure to paint. The sculpt is top quality with nice smooth surfaces, the billowing cloak, and the striking face. Also, the experiment with the cloak pattern worked out well for me. I was also quite happy with the sky-earth non-metallic metal! Overall, a nice change from the 15mm figs I have been focusing on lately :)

Jersa, bard  -  Posted: July 13, 2008  -  Manufacturer: Valiant Enterprises
Another figure for D&D. The session is this week so I had to get this done... I took some time to try to blend the colours, but found that instead of blending I mostly just ended up flattening all the highlights together... Oh well, pretty happy with that face, especially her blue eyes.


Miniature Figure painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields


I love mixing it up with skin colours. The blue was fun to paint. The stripes were fun also. This fig is for my D&D campaign!

Hyrekia the elven sorceress. This is a nice fig, and I enjoyed painting it. Putting together a colour composition was tough, but I am happy how it turned out. This one is in the running for my best face yet definitely!

Strohm, the elemental earth sorcerer monk, with his side kick jade hand!


Miniature Figure painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields


Went with a new style for this one. I am happy with the outcome!


Miniature Figure painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields


Quite likely my best fig to date.


Miniature Figure painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields


Since this is going to go up for sale, I figured I would put together the bow of the ship. I also did it to see how well and quickly I could make a ship, and I think that I could cut my building time from three weeks (the time it took me to build my corsair ship three years ago...) to a week at most! I was happy with the outcome!

This is a great fig. I tried something a little different, and am pretty happy with it. The etching was difficult to get exactly the way I wanted it, as well as the metallics. To be honest I find NMM a bit easier than really good metallics...

I really like this figure from Hasslfree Miniatures. One of the best figs to come out of there, and that is saying a lot!

Another member is joining the group. This one is a chaotic neutral gnome cleric! Should be very interesting. This one painted up so quickly because it was so small! Literally less than half the size of your average Reaper fig. The flail is scratch built, which is why it is connected by a wire and not a chain. I think it works :)


Miniature Figure painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields


Every campaign needs a good recurring character, and this one may be it. The party had more than a couple of chances to dispatch this annoying, racist elf, but they always found reasons not to! In any case, this is Ibnis, the bully on the ship and everyone's favourite enemy! This is also an attempt at sky-earth non-metallic metal. I think it turned out very well indeed!

My latest WIP for D&D! It's huge! But just wait until my D&D group sees it >:)


Miniature Figure painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields


I based this idea loosely on a worshipper of Anubis. The dog skull on the shield is an attempt to iconize the theme. I also liked these colours together. I realized this when I first worked on my Medieval Sir. Guinness army, that off-white, dark brown, and gold go pretty well together. I'm pretty happy with it :)

I loved this fig the first time I saw it. This one will hit the auction block, but I have a second that will feature prominently in my D&D campaign! This is my first large-scale attempt at non-metallic metals, and I am not unhappy with it!

The final figure for all of my adventurers is finally done! Langdon the Paladin! The player is a big Batman fan, so I decided to do a dark ages version of the bat symbol on the shield! Unfortunately this cast wasn't all that great, thus the face... Still, I am pretty happy with it :)


Old Glory Viking Bondi as European Monk from Old Glory painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Old Glory Viking Bondi as European Monk  -  Posted: July 10, 2007  -  Manufacturer: Old Glory
This is a hairy elven pilgrim monk for D&D. The campaign world is based on the dark ages so I used this Norse figure to represent the character. I like it, but I am not sure the player will :) Also, not the right hand, there is actually no texture on it at all, that is pure highlighting!

Another version of Aradia on a similar scenic base. Although this one shows that Aradia's old haunts are not haunted by only her! As a matter of fact, there is a Necromancer somewhere animating dead as we speak :)

After deciding GW's latest Lord of the Rings dragon was ugly and too overpriced I finally got around to picking up one of these McFarlane's dragons for miniature gaming. Fantastic fig, huge, extremely well painted... And I can buy at least three of these for the price of one unassembled, poorly designed, and requiring hours of painting, GW dragons :) Some more scale shots to follow!

Enid the Witch, a D&D cleric. This one was a very tough one for composition... It was either all black or some mish-mash of other halloween colours... So I went with the mish-mash and I am not sure it worked all that well. Still, I am pretty happy with it :)

Liftrasa Gorune. This one is my first attempts at doing a great miniature. Like most first attempts, it didn't turn out all that great, which is fine because I only ended up playing like two sessions of D&D 2.0 (which I hated) with her anyway. As you can see she has fallen into disrepair as of late...

All good things must come to an end... These figs were some figs my D&D gaming group used for their characters. Unfortunately that campaign ended prematurely, but I thought I would do these up nicely for the players (because as if I need any more miniatures!). I took some pictures of the packaging process, and here they are!
