I know this blog is mainly for 40K but I just finished a mini to use as my character in the Pathfinder RPG and I thought I'd share it with you guys. I present Harek Cinderaxe a human Ranger.

This is what I started with...

It's actually had to tell in that picture but this a metal mini. I'd already decided a didn't like the swords so decided to chop them off and add axes instead. Because axes make everything better. After some quick kit bashing from my dwarf warriors boxes I found two suitable axes and converted him.
Axes make everything awesome. It's science.

After a quick basecoat of black spray paint it was time to start painting. Since he's a ranger and all I decided to stick with browns and greens for his colors.

I hate painting faces....

I went with a lighter brown/tan for his under clothes and a very dark brown for his boots, gloves, and armor. The cloak is a nice dark green for blending in with the woods and such. I wasn't sure what to do with the axes but then I remembered that fire makes everything better and that Harek had flaming axes and went with that theme.
Here you can see the finished model. I still need to clear coat him to protect him but he's done as far as color goes. The axes were basecoated in red and then a bright orange used to create the lines. I think it gives the right sense that these axes mean business! Overall I'm really happy with how it turned out!


  1. This mini is rad man. Ive never played Pathfinder but have often thought it would be fun to try. Good job.
