I finished converting and painting a centaur for one of my fellow Dungeon and Dragons Adventurer’s League gamers, who described her character as having blue fur with white hair. To come up with the appropriate figure for her character, I converted a centaur figure using a Wizkids Deep Cuts ‘Horse & Hitch’ model, and a Reaper Bones miniatures I received from Reaper Miniatures’ 2012 Bones Kickstarter. The Wizkids Deep Cuts ‘Horse & Hitch’ model was ideal for the centaur’s body, as this model did not have a saddle/harness. I removed the head of the horse, and the lower portion of the Reaper miniature; I attached the remaining parts of the miniatures together using a hobby mini-drill, wire, and super glue. With some ‘green stuff’, I moulded a cape, and the continuation of the horse’s body.
The process of painting miniatures takes stages to complete, as it involves the process of layering paints, applying inks, dry brushing, added fine details to the figures, etc. In this blog post, I have photographed the different periods of painting these miniatures to illustrate the stages involved in painting miniatures.
