Burgomeister Herman Geizhals finally done!

As the title says! Our first miniature in our Dunkeldorf Miniature line is finally painted and ready to show! I knew from the beginning that he would be so satisfying to paint and I proved myself right! I’m already thinking about what colours to paint him next time!

Herman

This is actually just a prototype as our Sculptor Sonny isn’t done making modifications, but any modification is just going to improve this already awesome miniature!
I wanted to paint him in warm skin colours, so I went with Tanned and Rosy skintones with purple shades. And of course purple clothes to show off his wealth! He is certainly plotting something sinister!

The miniature is painted with Reaper paints and I mainly used the following paints:

Sleeves and hat:
09265 Deep Twilight
09266 Violet Light
09267 Sunset Purple
09025 Burgundy Wine
09026 Violet Red
Skin:
09043 Tanned Shadow
09068 Rosy Skin
09069 Rosy Highlight
09225 Redstone Highlight
Gem and gold:
09010 Pine Green
09011 Leaf Green
09012 Pale Green
09040 Dark Shadow
09074 Palomino Gold
09075 Buckskin Pale
Along with:
09037 Pure Black
Mid brown wash
09029 Earth Brown
09244 Muddy soil

Dunkeldorf and its citizens!

Phew, been a while since my last post. Out project and upcoming kickstarter Dunkeldorf Miniatures is really coming along well. All of the starting miniatures have been designed, so now we just need the finished artwork and of course the sculpts!

I am really excited to show off the artwork and greens of the following miniatures! All in 28mm scale:

First off: My favourite citizen of Dunkeldorf: Bertha the Ratcatcher!

Bertha

We asked for a gaunt female ratcatcher who wasn’t too feminine and we got exactly that! Both Mustafa and Sonny did an awesome job drawing and sculpting her! Every miniature in our line has their own background story written by my husband and I. We really had fun creating these citizens and hope everyone likes them too!

You can read more about the individial characters here on our facebook page.

Second Miniature of the day: Herman Geizhals – Rich noble with a dark secret!

I already showed you the artwork of Herman a little while ago, and here he is in all his glory!

I have the greens on my paintstation and boy, they are so detailed! Pictures don’t even give them justice! We are so excited to do this project and can’t wait to show you what else we have in store!

Next time we have a beggar who was once one of the greatest flute players in the world! What happened to him is a mystery, but he is a strong contender to beat Bertha as my favourite miniature!

Notice Board!

One thing we have always used in our RPG’s but never had terrain for is a notice board! It is a very useful prop whether you are in a big city or a small village, ’cause you can always find a missing person note, an advertisement, a wanted poster or a help wanted notice! We couldn’t find any such thing anywhere, so we made one ourselves!

Notice Board

Using balsa and a bunch of accessories it ended up looking pretty cool! We printed out some of the posters we initially made for an advertising pillar (which I will add to the blog at some point!) Ulli and Marquand is loose in our Middeheim campaign so they were an obvious choice for a wanted poster along with other posters (handouts printed in mini-size) a notorious witcher + Scoia’tael leader, advertisement for an awesome shop called King Games, and a real cool handout from WFRP 1st edition (think it was a fan-made version. Thanks to whoever made it!)
