The Miniature Painting Guild

What are fantasy Miniatures? They are small figures, usually in the 25 to 28mm scale range. They are usually made of lead or pewter and sometimes plastic, and come quite unpainted and plain. What is involved in painting them? Well a heck of a lot really, though to get some satisfactory results early on isn’t too difficult. There is a section later that will deal with some tips towards painting these tiny figures, as well as links to other sites and groups that can give ample help when needed! Read more interesting things about Miniatures, and myself HERE!

Please feel free to join my Guildmembers Mailing List if you want updates and general discussion regarding this fantastic hobby!

03/20/2009 I have added a very small Gingerbread Golem to my Reaper gallery… Behold Terry the Angry Ginger Man! He is only on a 10mm round base, so much smaller than usual!

03/12/2009 Well well well! It has been some time since an update and in fact, some time since I have finished any miniatures! The first mini I am posting was actually completed last year in april at GrotsCon in Red Deer. This Warhammer convention was hosted by our local club, the Grots, and of coures I went and painted all day. I chose a plastic GW goblin as a project and I call him Karnak the Watcher.

01/22/2008 I have finally finished a roughly trimmed plastic Space Marine! My first ever, he is from the Death Knight Space Marine chapter.

01/01/2008 Well I will kick off the New Year with two new minis! I have finally finished two Newbold World miniatures after having them on my desk for nigh on a year! The first is a Trollgrim Heavyweight boxer and the second is a Trollgrim Cornerman. Check ’em out and have a super New Year!

12/25/2007 I have began painting again after some time away!! I recently painted up a pair of characters for a friend’s D&D campaign players. One is Baerwyn, an archer from Reaper. The other is a “Warforged” character… I do not know what line the mini is from :O If you can tell me, I would appreciate it!

02/06/2007 I have finished my Golden Goblin 3rd place winning Asurmen, the Hand of Asuryan and uploaded him to my GW gallery. I am happy to say, he is staying in my cabinet!!!

01/28/2007 Yesterday was the Golden Goblin painting competition at the GW store in Kingsway mall up in Edmonton. This was my first “live” comp and I ended up winning first in the LOTR category with Gandalf the White, 3rd in 40K with my slightly unfinished Asurmen (no gallery yet) and the Giant did not place in Fantasy. It was really fun, and good to meet everyone there! Here is a pic of my entries and trophies.

01/11/2007 The first mini of the New Year is Isabelle, from Hasslefree. There are some naughty bits on her, so be forewarned!

12/23/2006 This is the second of a batch of Hasslefree minis. She is a representation of Selene from the Underworld movies, painted as a surprise present for my wife!

12/23/2006 I have been very busy trying to meet a couple of Christmas deadlines, and I begin with an Ice Elf from Hasslefree miniatures. She was painted up using only 6 colors.

11/10/2006 I have finished the GW Giant and named him “Grok Stonecrusher” after a Stone Giant character I played once in a D&D campaign.

11/07/2006 The Giant is nearly complete. He will be done by week’s end guaranteed!

09/23/2006 I have done a little more work on the giant. A lot of fiddly things, like straps and such. Still more to go, but it is definately getting close now!

09/06/2006 I have received pictures of Donny’s Green Knight, which turned out really great, so I have uploaded them to the guest gallery πŸ™‚

09/01/2006 I have finally painted something! I present Russ, Dwarven Adventurer as a present for a friend. Check out the fancy sculpted ‘shroom on his base!

06/25/2006 Donny has finished more of his Bretonnians for his page in the Guest Gallery. The improvement is easily visible, and I can’t wait to see his Green Knight!

05/16/2006 Another overdue but largish update on the Giant! Hair, bones, nails… more yet πŸ™‚

05/09/2006 I have been doing some work on the Giant again, and hopefully, he will be getting closer and closer to completion as the days go on!

03/11/2006 I have finished a new Reaper miniature, Krista, Ritterlich Warmaiden in metallics. These are my first pictures which I have tried using a home-made light tent for. I think they came out pretty good, with much less glare.

03/02/2006 After Ebay pulled my first set of auctions for using my nickname in the titles and other silliness, I have reposted the four figures on EBAY right now. They are the Empire Wizard, the Grey Elf, the Fire Elemental and Tanshiro (aka Kung Fu Joe)…

02/27/2006 I have touched up the old Wizard of Dusk and Dawn . Here is the updated Empire Wizard… just in time to auction off on EBAY.

02/23/2006 I have added a new guest miniature to the guest gallery. This is the first mini painted by a fellow at work. Check out Donny’s Bretonnian Knight! Very good for a first mini πŸ˜€

02/01/2006 I had just finished a very quick Hasslefree martial artist for the Toadstools in January, and finally touched him up a little bit. I really needed to finish a mini or two though to get out of the funk I have really been in. Check out Kung Fu Joe

01/31/2006 I have painted up a new plastic dwarf from GW at our local gaming club’s “Paint a Dwarf day”. Check him out here…

03/10/2005 I have uploaded an article to introduce painters to painting glass bottles with fluid inside. Pretty basic, but it should get some ideas across!
