Diehard is Tim Prow & friends sculpting minis. They've done a few Kickstarters, and I think some of the previous minis are available through a website under a different name/brand.

Would have loved to get a ton more, but stuck with a few must-haves for now. Lemmy was a given, the robots will fit perfectly if I ever get going on my Meat Hating Robot Pirates band, and I'm always on the lookout for more non-human skeletons. The rest of the skeleton are really nice with some dynamic poses. I never cared for the old GW Slann, but for some reason I love Diehard's Eru-Kin, especially the sci-fi ones.

I recently wrote how I was avoiding buying new minis this year, except to treat myself those few half orcs I recently picked up.

That was like summoning up temptation.

And I gave in to a buy I couldn't pass up. They classic minis and are close enough to half-orcs to be painted and used as such.



Seriously, no more buying minis the rest of the year.  :engel:

Classics!

The only problem is the monotony of the single rank-and-file pose. Really really interested to see how you paint these up. :)

Ah yes, those are a great choice, one of the less popular and hence affordable Regiments of Renown.

There are so may variations from Citadel / GW down the years of what a hobgoblin should look like - these guys fit your half-orc image much better than they fit my hobgoblin image!

Been horribly I'll for going on three weeks now. Haven't done any painting in a while, until I rage-painted one of the previously started half-orcs just now.

Squeezed out a few minutes throughout the day to speed through another Reaper half-orcs. Both of these were admittedly really easy to paint. The second one has been slightly modified. I cut off the ridiculous blades from her armour, and gave her a more humble shield to hopefully look better with the rest of the half-orcs.

I cast polymorph cheap dinosaur toy into skeletal owlbear!

*Poof*



Got a couple of skeletal triceratops toys in a package from Shadespyre a while ago. With a little work I think it turned out OK. The post-surgery beak-like skull, size and stance made me think owlbear.

Thanks! I was really just trying to make it so it wouldn't be identified as a triceratops. But then I thought, hmmm skeletal owlbear. To go with my zombie owlbear. I need to get a "living" one now.  :-D

So... There's now this creation. Horc Solo. Read on zee blog if you're curious about him.

Yikes! Face only a mother could love!! :icon_eek: Great colours though.

Some cool owlbear models down the years, perhaps the Ral Partha AD&D model which is also on all fours would be the best match for this skeletal one?

When I posted pics of my painted Drew Williams trolls, a few people asked where I got them. They're available again, along with three new ones, for a limited time.

I'm not very good at this "not buying new minis" thing. But at least I'm still keeping it to a minimum. And these were both hard to pass up and bargains as well...



I've wanted the Serpentine Dragon since I was a teen. The other is some sort of Kickstarter exclusive mini from a boardgame, and is very fitting for the Meat Hating Robot Pirates.

Sorry to crash your thread too - do you know of any decent roman or greek style giants? Pose similar to the old giant in the comparison picture above?

What about any decent Cyclops?

When I read your message I immediately thought in a Giant that has been not released yet, coming from the Crocodile Miniatures crowdfunding. Special Cyclops charm here. :happy:

Having seen these painted now, I think I like what I see...

Now just to somehow order online without it coming up on the credit card statement....

Really reasonable prices on those cyclops minis, too! May have to add them to my wish list, but I've still got other giants to paint before I go getting more.


I was excited for half-Orctober. But I've been travelling a lot for work and have barely had time for painting. Here's my humble start.

No progress on the half-orcs. Travelling a lot for work this month. On a positive note, I'm on a work trip that's close enough to make it to a gallery opening that will have a few of my creepy toy things tonight...

I made it to the galley opening! Photo evidence, even. I'm leftmost in the lineup.




With travelling for work keeping me busy, I haven't had much time for painting. I painted the flesh on all of the despoiling hobgoblins half-orcs (hob-orcs?) but also painted one to completion so I could test out how they would look
