Here is an assortment of anthropomorphic miniatures that I have painted up for my own use with the Ironclaw Role-Playing Game. Other miniatures shown here may kitbashes made from other companies' miniatures, or else various types of "beastmen" found in other lines.


Thumbnail: Chikere's Court Chikere's Court
The court and throne of Chaka Chikere, the Elephant King of Sarjmoti, for my Akoma campaign, sans furnishings and courtiers. This was built out of blocks made from Hirst Arts Castlemolds blocks and an old resin model put out by the now-defunct Heartbreaker Hobbies and Games. (18 Nov 2003)

Thumbnail: Chikere's Throne Room Chikere's Throne Room
A close-up of the throne room of Chaka Chikere, the Elephant King of Sarjmoti, for my Akoma campaign, sans furnishings and courtiers. (I think I should probably take another photograph, with decorations and the Chaka's court, to add some color and contrast to this stony place!) This was built out of blocks made from Hirst Arts Castlemolds blocks and an old resin model put out by the now-defunct Heartbreaker Hobbies and Games. (18 Nov 2003)

Thumbnail: Keshret Facade Keshret Facade
A facade for the beginning of an adventure run at Necronomicon 2003. The blocks used in the picture were made using Hirst Arts Castlemolds blocks. The seated hawk-headed deity statues were home-made: I sculpted an original model using a wire frame, Sculpey and Magic Sculp, made a latex mold with Mold-Builder, and then made castings using Durham's Water Putty. The "sand" area is made of foam insulation board, with a pool made of foam-core board, bits of water putty shavings, and some plastic trees from Warhammer 40K (Games Workshop). The jackal miniatures are Anubi from War Gods of Aegyptus, while the rest of the miniatures are a combination of official Ironclaw miniatures, and assorted kitbashes. (26 Oct 2003)

Thumbnail: Undine Undine: Elemental of Water
A hand-sculpted "Undine" (Elemental of Water) made from Super Sculpey on a wire frame, with Magic Sculpt and ribbon epoxy putty for details. (Oct 2002)

Thumbnail: Repense Tower (Downward) Repense Tower (Downward View)
A 3' 10" tall piece of scenery I created for my Challenge of the Zodiac adventure for Necronomicon 2002. (2 Oct 2002)

Thumbnail: Repense Tower (Upward) Repense Tower (Upward View)
Another view of my tower piece. The conical roof section and the upper chamber are removeable, each having hexagonal joints that attach them to the tower. (The tower is semi-modular, in that it's fixed up to serve as a parapet, should the top roof and room be removed.) Why have such an absurdly large piece of scenery, you ask? Because it's great for attracting wandering players in the game room. "Hey, what's that thing?" "I'm glad you asked! It's scenery for a game called Ironclaw. Want to play?" (2 Oct 2002)

Thumbnail: Repense Tower (Inside) Repense Tower (Inside View)
Inside view of the upper chamber of the tower. This piece can be removed and used as a "stand-alone" representation of a room on the table-top. The "transparent" walls and the fact that this can be removed and set by itself on the table are there so that this can be used to serve as a layout of a room, and not just "battlefield scenery" -- i.e., so that it's easier for the players to see the contents of the room, whereas it would be a bit more tricky for them to peer into the upper room of the tower, when it stands nearly 4 feet above the table. (2 Oct 2002)

Thumbnail: Jadeclaw Screen Photo: ConGames 2002 Jadeclaw "GM Screen"
For ConGames 2002, a gaming convention held in Tampa, FL by the Stonehill Gaming Organization, I ran a couple of Jadeclaw scenarios. I wanted some sort of GM screen, and though I didn't manage to get to the really useful kind that would have charts and tables and other references at hand, I put together a foam piece of a stylized mountain range with clouds here and there, with my rendition of the Jadeclaw logo, suspended an inch in front of the scene for a "floating" effect. It served both as a shield for my GM notes from prying player eyes, and as a way to make it very obvious exactly which table the Jadeclaw game was being run at. (27 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Elements Start Photo: ConGames 2002 "The Five Elements" - Start
My first Jadeclaw scenario at ConGames 2002 was "The Five Elements," an adventure that pitted the heroes against five "vermin spirits" associated with the five Daoist elements, in order to save the valley of Ho Shing from five terrible curses. Alas, this was a bit much to expect new players to deal with in a four hour time slot, so only four of those five curses were averted, but the players were a lively bunch, and so far as I saw, great fun was had by all (myself included). I took an opportunity to snap a photo of the setup before things got too terribly messed up. Here, our heroes are summoned by a great dragon, Long Chen, as they are told of this terrible menace facing the valley, and how they might avert it. The scenery piece is made from three sets of a plastic "mountain biking" playset on clearance at Kay-Bee stores. (I used a dremel to liberate the terrain sections from the "techno" looking bits, and then attached the pieces to a large sheet of foam insulation board, filled in the gaps, and applied paint here and there.) (27 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Cavern of Fire Photo: ConGames 2002 "The Five Elements" - Caverns of Fire
Toward the start of my scenario, "The Five Elements," our heroes ventured into the Caverns of Fire, which I represented with a large sheet of insulation foam board cut out into a cavern layout. Part of the cavern has lava pits represented by areas of red and yellow, with pieces of black mat board for "cooling rock". This terrain piece is on the flip side of the "wilderness" piece I used for the start of the game. At this point in the game, our heroes have already defeated the Scorpion of Earth, and are now dealing with the duplicitous Viper of Fire. (Well, most of them. Lazy Dragon is still gingerly making his way across the rickety plank bridge over the pool of lava while the others deal with the Viper.) (27 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Mandate of Heaven Photo: ConGames 2002 "The Mandate of Heaven"
My second scenario was called "The Mandate of Heaven." Our heroes find, to their chagrin, that they are dead. The matter of their reincarnation into new lives has hit a technical snag, thanks to certain complications in the celestial bureaucracy, but if they can perform a "simple" task, a powerful dragon can see to it that the proper paperwork makes its way to the right offices.... (27 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Bi Meihui Bi Meihui
Bi Meihui, a vixen sworddancer, and a sample PC from the Jadeclaw rule book. This model was originally an Elf model from Grenadier, but I used some putty to give it a fox head and baggy pants. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Emerald Crown Emerald Crown
A snow leopard sorceress of the far east. I don't recall just what this miniature was originally, but it was some sort of spirit from Ral Partha, I believe. I used putty to give it a feline face and tail some time ago, with the intention of using this to represent "Amenlichtli" from SinaiMUCK (a nasty NPC villain from a few plots) but I only recently painted it up to represent an NPC for my Bisclavret campaign. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Magnificent Weasel Magnificent Weasel
"Magnificent Weasel," my attempt to represent one of the sample PCs from the Jadeclaw rule book: a cheerfully overconfident open-hand fighter weasel. To represent him, I used a "lizardman" figure from Earthdawn, substituting a putty-sculpted new head, and replacing his sword-arm with a plastic hand salvaged from a Games Workshop miniature conversion. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Mouse Barmaid Mouse Barmaid
The body is a headpiece from a plastic Bretonnian Knight, though minus the sword and shield it was originally holding, and adding some putty to give it proportionally larger arms and a mouse head. The plate is a piece of cardboard, and for food I used a "hunk of meat" from a Tau Kroot set, and some "intestines" from a Warhammer Fantasy Zombie Regiment set ... though I painted the "intestines" tan in the hopes that it could resemble, oh, maybe spaghetti or some such thing that might be served for a meal in an inn somewhere. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Mouse Peasant Mouse Peasant
This was originally a very badly cast (almost nil in the way of surface detail) "halfling" figure that I got as part of a grab-bag trade. I used some putty to give it a mouse head and tail, to represent one of the many mice scurrying about in the lands of the Repense. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Panda Monk Panda Monk
A traveling panda monk. This was originally a model from a pack of "Japanese villagers" from some small miniatures company I don't recall the name of. I used putty to give the model the "panda head," and a bit more for the hat. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Pei the Learned Pei the Learned
Pei the Learned, a chicken Dao Shih wizard, and one of the sample PCs from the Jadeclaw rule book. This is a Tengu model from Ral Partha, but without the wings normally on the back. I used some putty to add the hat, and to fill in the gap on the back where the wings would have been glued. I removed the sword that would have been scabbarded at the side, and covered up that spot with a plastic pouch from a Games Workshop Mordheim set. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Phoenix Mage Phoenix Mage
A phoenix mage from the land of Khongguo. This was a Shadowrun miniature, with a pair of wings from the bitz box attached (and some putty to blend in the join), plus some putty for the large beak -- and, of course, an unusual paint scheme. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Porcupine Barmaid Porcupine Barmaid
A prickly serving wench with an empty tray to take back to the kitchen. Originally a Castle Falkenstein miniature that was holding a dagger (hence the clenched fist), but I removed the knife and glued a cardboard "tray" on the hand. (I know you wouldn't hold a tray like that, but from above the table, it's not noticeable.) For the head, I used putty. For the quills, I used the spiky "manes" from a couple of plastic leftover Kroot heads. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Rabbit Archer Rabbit Archer
A rabbit archer from the lands of Khongguo. This was originally from a set of "Japanese villagers" from a company I don't recall the name of, but I used putty to give the rabbit face and ears. The painting scheme is based on a picture I saw of an archer in traditional Mongolian costume. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Rooster Warrior #1 Rooster Warrior #1
A rooster warrior with staff and sword. This is a Tengu model from Ral Partha, minus the wings on the back, and with a bit of putty to give a "comb" and to fill in the gap on the back where the wings would have been glued on. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: War Lizard War Lizard
A war lizard from the far eastern lands of Khongguo. Actually, this is a riding beast from a "Dragon Rider" model for Warzone (Mishima), but I figured it would work perfectly for a Jadeclaw beast. (28 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Beauhaugen Dane Beauhaugen Dane
Beauhaugen Dane, a black leopard thaumaturge/necromancer, casting a spell to speak with the spirit of a dead warrior whose skull he holds aloft. (Character played in my campaign by "Garfield".) This was originally a Ral Partha "Ravenloft" werebat miniature, but instead of putting on the wings/arms (a separate piece), I filled in the gap with some putty, and used arms from a "Zombie Regiment" plastic set. (The skull is an extra piece from the Games Workshop "Skeleton Regiment" set.) (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Belle Le Noir Belle Le Noir
Belle Le Noir of Crescenta, and kin of Tremaine Le Noir. This is an old Ral Partha "Vampire: the Masquerade" miniature to which I added some putty to give a vaguely leonine face and tail. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Blaireu Highlander Blaireu Highlander
This is an old miniature from Off-the-Wall Armies (Simtac) of a badger hefting a claymore. I was fortunate to get a pack of three of these guys some time ago. (I have no idea where to get more.) (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Brother Duncan Brother Duncan
Brother Duncan, the Ardentine Witch Hunter. This miniature doesn't quite match just what Brother Duncan is supposed to look like, but it's the best I could manage in a pinch. The body is that of an old Space Knight miniature from Ral Partha -- one that was modular, with separate heads and hands to be glued on, so I substituted a plastic claymore from an Empire Regiment set (and took off the tip to make it a "Calendar Sword") for the right hand, and put a shield on the left (with some putty to make the hand). The head is an alternate plastic head for a Skaven Warrior from an old Fantasy Regiments set. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Destrier #1 Destrier #1
A fierce destrier war-mount owned by the nobleman Tremaine Le Noir. This miniature was originally a mount for a Bauhaus trooper from 2nd Edition Warzone, though I used some putty to give it little forearms. (Due to some lack of clarity in the cover portrait for the Bauhaus Forces of War book, it looks as if the dino beast that the Bauhaus trooper is riding has no forelegs. The sculptor, therefore, made these poor creatures without any forelegs, which, in my humble opinion, looks terrible.) (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Flynn the Elementalist Flynn the Elementalist
Flynn the Water Elementalist, a ferret spellcaster played by Wendy Peacock. The miniature is an old Ral Partha "beastman" from the "Fangs of Fury" set (I think) but the wire spear shaft that it was to hold has been replaced by a whittled piece of plastic sprue meant to represent an "ice arrow" that Flynn has readied. Here, Flynn is pictured in the realm of the Bow and the Fish in the Repense Zodiac Adventure; the Bow is almost within reach, but the Fish is lurking in the waters behind Flynn! (The bow is a spare piece from some unidentified Games Workshop plastic figures set, and the fish was sculpted from Magic Sculpt and green epoxy putty.) (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Horatio Le Noir Horatio Le Noir
Horatio Le Noir, half-brother of Tremaine Le Noir, and governor of the city of Crescenta. This is a "Vampire: the Masquerade" miniature with a bit of putty work done on the face to make it look more animal-like -- plus some more putty for the tail. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Kanthu Kanthu
Kanthu, the cheetah atavist, played by Mach. This miniature is some unidentified Grenadier miniature that I think was meant to be some sort of "beastman," to which I added some putty to make the face look a little more feline than demonic, and also to add some clothes. The spear is a spare from an Undead Regiment set, and the items on Kanthu's back are a piece of "bitz" from a Tau/Groot plastic set from Warhammer 40000. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Le Noir Guards at the City Gates Le Noir Guards at the City Gates
Two guardsmen of House Le Noir at the city gates of Crescenta at night. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Le Noir Guard Le Noir Guard
Detail of one of the guardsmen of Crescenta City, in the service of House Le Noir. This is a plastic High Elf Spearmen miniature from Warhammer Fantasy Battle 4th Edition, but with a "bull" head from the crest of a plastic Bretonnian Knight alternate helmet. The horns were removed, and putty used to add the mane to make it a lion guardsman. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: The Naithereun and the Chalice The Naithereun and the Chalice
The Naithereun and the Chalice of the Repense Zodiac. The Naithereun (the flying serpent) is a kitbash of a broken "snake" miniature acquired in a grab-bag deal, with the tail-tip of a plastic Skaven (to complete the length and give it more "curl"), and some wings salvaged from an old Grenadier "harpy" set. The figure "hovers" on a plastic clear base from an old "Dragon Lords" mini set. The chalice is an inverted bell piece from an Undead Regiments set, combined with the horns that were left over from creating the Tremaine Lenoir miniature (below), and based on a piece of resin from a very early attempt of mine at making pieces for a graveyard scenery set. The clouds are pieces of white fake fur. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Pim and Duncan Pim and Duncan
Pim the Monkey Juggler performs in front of the fireplace at the Dancing Unicorn Inn, while Brother Duncan finds himself a table (and looks for a place to set down his sword and shield). (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Pim the Monkey Juggler Pim the Monkey Juggler
Pim the Monkey Juggler, an adventurer in my "Skirfane Campaign," played by John Boulton. The miniature is a kitbash, using the body of an old plastic Battle Masters Empire Archer figure (Milton Bradley/Games Workshop), with some putty to sculpt something resembling a monkey face on it. The hands were salvaged from spare bitz from an Undead Army set, and the left arm is a spare piece from an Empire Regiments boxed set. The juggling balls are just putty, and some more putty was used to add the tail and prehensile feet. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Porcupine Lady Porcupine Lady
A porcupine lady of House Esclage. This is a Castle Falkenstein miniature to which I added some putty to make a vaguely animal-like face, and a couple of "spine" pieces from spare plastic heads of Kroot warriors to make some quills. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Priest of S'allumner Priest of S'allumner
A priest of S'allumner at the Shrine of St. Illuminato in Crescenta City. The "priest" was made from a miniature from the Ral Partha "Mage: the Ascension" line, but replacing the head with a "stag head" plastic piece from the crest of an alternate Bretonnian Knight helmet, and using some putty to smooth out the join. The book and table are from the old Milton Bradley/Games Workshop "HeroQuest" board game, and the rock behind him (barely visible) is a Grendel resin piece from a "treasure hoard" set, with a sword chained to it. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Rabbit Warrior Rabbit Warrior
A mysterious rabbit bounty hunter that has been dogging (rabbiting?) the trail of Kanthu the cheetah. This is an old Ral Partha Imports miniature that was originally called "Doom Bunny: Black Rabbit of Death," or some variation on that. (No conversion required.) (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Raccoon Mage Raccoon Mage
A raccoon mage with a flute. This is a slight conversion of a Ral Partha miniatures set that contained a human flute-player, accompanied by a non-anthropomorphic (and quite squat-looking) raccoon. Since I had multiple copies of this miniature, I decided to try using it for conversion, and thus the head of the raccoon ended up replacing that of the humanoid figure. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: S'narl the Acquirer S'narl the Acquirer
S'narl the Acquirer of Antiquities, a wolverine burglar character played by John Cullen. The miniature is a kitbash job, with plastic pieces from various Games Workshop miniatures. The torso is a Dark Eldar chest piece; the legs are spares from a Tau Fire Warrior; the arms and crossbow are from an Empire Militia set; the head is an old Skaven head from Fantasy Regiments; the pouch, rope and other accessories are spare bitz from Mordheim. (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Spartak Spartak the Strong
Spartak, a Bear Mercenary of legendary strength and appetite, a character played by John Zielinsky. This miniature was kitbashed from a "bearskin" from a mis-cast Games Workshop barbarian standard miniature, and a plastic Chaos Knight from the old Milton Bradley/Games Workshop "HeroQuest" board game. The shield is a plastic add-on, and the flail head is another piece from the "bitz box" (a plastic piece from HeroQuest). (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Tremaine Le Noir Tremaine Le Noir
Tremaine Le Noir is a barbary lion nobleman played by Martin. This miniature is a kitbash job, starting with the plastic body from a Dark Eldar, with spare arms from an Empire Militia set. The head is actually a "bull head" crest piece from the top of a Bretonnian Knight alternate helmet, but with putty added to create a mane. The cape is a metal piece from some unidentified set, though I presume it once belonged to a "vampire". (6 Jul 2002)

Thumbnail: Repense Warrior Repense Warrior
A warrior of the House of Repense searches the laboratory of his lord for an intruder. This was originally a Grenadier monster of some sort that I acquired as part of a bulk trade, so I'm not sure what the original name was. The features on the face I thought to be very bat-like, so I used some putty to add a couple of wings extending from the arms. The scenery is a combination of painted foam insulation board, some resin scenery from Grendel, some metal scenery from Grenadier, and some odds and ends from my "bitz box." (18 Feb 2002)

Thumbnail: Ruined Temple Scene Ruined Temple Scene
A kitsune stands before an idol in a ruined temple. The "waterfall" is actually a toy prop from a "Tomb Raider" action figure set. The kitsune was originally a miniature of an oriental woman in a kimono from some company I don't recall, but I used some putty to sculpt the fox face and to add a tail. (And, of course, I painted it, too.) The "dog Buddha" statue is sculpted by Richard Stewart, based on an illustration by J. Goodwin. Some digital touching-up done to "clean up" the image. (27 Jan 2002)

Thumbnail: Repense Astrologer Repense Astrologer
"With the power to see the future through the paths of the stars ... I shall rule the WORLD! Bwahahahahaha!" Or, at least, that's the best I can make of this guy's pose. ;) This was originally a Ral Partha "Ravenloft" undead miniature, though I used some putty to give him a new face and a little more hair (to cover up that exposed skull), a couple of plastic spiky bits from a Dark Eldar sprue for the ears, a couple of gargoyle wings from some other Ral Partha figure set ("Toad and Minions"), and then the telescope was constructed from several pieces of cylindrical plastic sprue glued together and mounted on the stand for a plastic "mortar" piece from a model kit. The base is made of resin pieces stacked up so that the left wing (viewer's right) doesn't hit the ground (table). And, voila! An astrologer bat noble from House Repense, from Ironclaw. (14 Jan 2002)

Thumbnail: Atavist #1 Atavist #1
A Phelan (wolf) "sky-clad" Atavist, hoisting a skull of a defeated Chevernaise foe, as he invokes his power and challenges his opponents before a crashing waterfall. This figure was originally a Ral Partha "Ravenloft" werewolf figure, and would have otherwise been holding a female "victim" in the upraised hand. I replaced the damsel with a plastic beastman skull from a Games Workshop plastic Undead Regiment set. (14 Jan 2002)

Thumbnail: Wolf Druidess Atavist #1
A Phelan (wolf) druidess calling down a curse upon her enemies. This model was originally part of a Grenadier three-part "werewolf" set; the set originally included a leggy damsel, a second model that had the damsel transforming into a werewolf (which is used here), and the last model being a full-fledged howling wolf. I used some putty to give the werewolf a bit of head hair so it wouldn't look "bald" as an anthropomorph, and since the hands were a bit stubby (presumably half-transforming into paws on the mini), I filled them with added-on items. In one hand is a plastic spear from my bitz box, and in the other is a plastic Skaven skull from the Skaven Regiment set. (14 Jan 2002)

Thumbnail: Blaireu #1 Blaireu #1
A badger noble stands outside a venerable stone structure. This is an "Off the Walls Armies" miniature, which I think might still be available through SimTac games, though I'm not absolutely certain. (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #1 Skeleton Warrior #1
This is an old Ral Partha "skeletal beastman", perhaps a feline in life, armed with a battleaxe, lurking just around the corner in a dungeon labyrinth. (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #2 Skeleton Warrior #2
This is an old Ral Partha "skeletal beastman" miniature armed with a double-handed sword, standing outside the ruins of a dark temple. (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #3 Skeleton Warrior #3
This is a plastic skeleton warrior assembled from the new Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy Battles "Skeleton Regiments" set, using one of the alternate "beastman" skulls instead of a human one. Here, the skeletal remains of a ram warrior have been animated by a necromancer to guard an aged mausoleum. (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #4 Skeleton Warrior #4
Another Ral Partha "skeletal beastman" miniature. This former wolf is armed with a double-handed sword, and challenges any who dare approach the entrance to the necromancer's keep. (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #5 Skeleton Warrior #5
Another Ral Partha "skeletal beastman" miniature. A herbivore in life, this undead archer now feeds upon the flesh of those slain by his arrows. (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Reynard Reynard the Rogue
A discontinued "Ral Partha Imports" miniature, 23-619 Reynard the Rogue (though I have also seen it billed as "Reynard, Defender of the Forest"), which I acquired about a decade ago. Not only is this one of the very first miniatures I picked up, but this is one of my most prized "anthro" figures, for the sheer amount of detail ... and because it's one of the few "beastman" miniatures that actually looks civilized. Here, "Reynard" pauses to survey the wonders of an underground vault he has just "stumbled upon." (16 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Bisclavret Highlander #2 Bisclavret Highlander #2
This miniature was converted as with Highlander #1, except that I used different sprue bitz to give the model a pair of pistols instead of a claymore. The head is a primitive home-made casting, but with a hat trimmed off a spare head from a Mordheim sprue set. (7 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Bisclavret Highlander #1 Bisclavret Highlander #1
A converted miniature meant to represent a Bisclavret Highlander wielding a claymore. The main body consists of a Ral Partha miniature from the Shadowrun series -- originally an unarmed man in a kilt in a pack of "shapeshifters", accompanied by a wolf. Since I already have tons of wolves, I took the head from the wolf from that pack and used it to replace the head, making it a wolf-morph. I clipped off the arms, and replaced them with some extra plastic "bitz" from a Games Workshop "Empire Regiment" sprue, giving this fellow a claymore. (6 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton #1 Skeleton #1
An undead nasty for games of Ironclaw! One great thing about Games Workshop plastic regimental sets is that they come in all these assorted pieces, so kitbashing "anthros" is not all that difficult (provided you have the right parts). In this case, I used one of those extra Skaven skulls from the newer Skaven Regiment set, cut a notch into the base of the skull, and attached it onto the neck to have a "beastman" skeleton for variety. The shield is an old Citadel plastic shield, back when they used to have holes in the shields to fit on "plugs" that would be molded onto the arms of metal Citadel miniatures, but I covered up the unnecessary hole by putting a plastic "shield icon" (the skull) over the middle. If you're supposing that a "human" skull isn't appropriate for Ironclaw, then just look at those massive proportions and realize that it's an ape skull, of course! ;) (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Mi Ling Mi Ling
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Mi Ling", a cat swordswoman, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. The miniature showed much more cleavage than Tracy Butler's illustration (in fact, the original didn't show any at all) so I used some epoxy putty to raise the neckline a bit to make it look more true to the portrait. (9 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Deirdre Deirdre
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Deirdre", a squirrel archer, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. The original figure had a much shorter skirt, so much so as to compromise propriety, so I used a bit of putty to lengthen it and make it look a little more like the original illustration. (9 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Hendrick Hendrick
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Hendrick", a weasel thief, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. Here, he makes his way out of a hole broken into a wall -- no doubt making off with priceless treasures. (Or maybe he's just being sneaky for the fun of it -- Who knows?) (8 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Anton Anton d'Avordupois
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Anton", a horse warrior, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. Here, he stands at the entrance to an ancient temple. This one was a little more work to assemble than most, since the sword arm and shield are separate pieces. (But then, that probably could make this figure ideal for kitbashing!) (8 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Vesper Father Vesper
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Vesper", a raccoon cleric, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. (8 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Beagen Beagen the Atavist
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Beagen", a wolf Atavist, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. (8 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Annushka Annushka
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Annuskha", a bat, and one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on Tracy Butler's original illustration. Some modification has been made to the length of the skirt and to add a "collar" with putty, to make the miniature look more like the original illustration. (8 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Mavra Mavra, Elementalist
This is an official Ironclaw miniature, representing "Mavra", one of the main pre-generated characters for the basic rulesbook, painted up in a scheme based on the one shown on the cover of the rulesbook. (My wife immediately noticed a similarity to Lina Inverse....) (6 Oct 2001)

Thumbnail: Rat Thief Rat Thief
This is an old "Wererat" model; the base is inscribed "FF 79 (c) Grenadier". The wererat was originally unadorned save for the sword, but in order to make it useful for Ironclaw (an Atavist, after all, probably wouldn't be carrying a sword), I used some green epoxy putty to add a jerkin and rope belt, and added some plastic "bitz" (pouches, sheathed daggers) left over from some Games Workshop regiment kits. (28 Sep 2001)

Thumbnail: Wolf Knight Wolf Knight
This is an old model of uncertain origin, though the base is inscribed "FF 75 (c) Grenadier". I thought it looked very much wolf-like, so I painted it up accordingly, giving the wolf an "autumn" scheme with the leaf on the shield, and the hem of the cloak has little "leaves" along it, on both front and back. (27 Sep 2001)

Thumbnail: Cat Spearwoman Cat Spearwoman
This is an old Grenadier (?) model from the "Fangs of Fury Command" blister pack, painted up as a tabby cat, with a tail added via green epoxy putty. (The background is some airbrushing, rather than just leaving it "scanner cover grey".) (Aug 2001)
