I know that a lot of us here love to paint or convert our minis to match some of our favorite characters from videogames/films/anime/whatever.

I'd love to see all the tribute minis you guys have come up with. I'll be back later and post some of the tribute projects I've done.

Here are two of my tribute figures - Purgatori and Vampirella - both of whom were converted from the Succubus Vandella figure.

For those of you unfamiliar with these two comic book characters, here they are as they normally appear.

I should point out that Vampirella is my all-time favourite superhero, hence my user name of Vampifan.

I started out with a Ninja All Stars Goemon, and I ended up with Auron from Final Fantasy X

For some reason, my favorite characters in Final Fantasy 6 were always the least central ones, but the chances that Sodapop were going to make a suitable Mog or Umaro mini was pretty low. So, when I saw that a local Blood Bowl commissioner had [url==http://www.bigfootlunchclub.com/2012/10/rocky-mountain-rampage-bigfoot-miniature.html]some Big Foot Minis for sale[/url], I had to jump at the chance to make an Umaro. I only had to adjust the hair a little and it was perfect.

For Mog, I started out with a Giri creep from the Super Dungeon Goro set (I ended up with lots of extra Giri after the Forgotten King Kickstarter.

Anyway, here they are:

Here is a party of Light Warriors from the very first Final Fantasy game. Only the White Mage has been converted- for each of the others, there was a Super Dungeon mini that just worked for it.

I intend to finish out the set with the last two classes. The Black Mage mini is part of the Super Dungeon Legends kickstarter, while the Red Mage will have to be converted.

It is undisputed that you need a fighter in the front rank.

Image

Black Belt is pretty useful- especially if you want to save some of the money you'd normally spend equipping a character.

Image

I based them on the original colors from the Nes Final Fantasy. It really shows up with Thief here, who underwent an extreme makeover for the remakes.

Image

And here's White Mage in all her iconic glory. I really had to consider whether I was giving her a staff or hammer.

Man, it's been a long time since I posted anywhere. Let me see if i can do this right. I make a lot of tribute models.
Image
This is Hsien Ko from Darkstalkers.
Image
Original Candy and Cola painted like Vanellopi from Wreck It Ralph.
Image
The stealth elf from Skylanders is my replacement Riftling Rogue.
Image
This is the Hexcast sorceress painted to look like Firiona from Everquest box art fame.
Image
And lastly, the Thunderhoof Cavalier painted like my personal favorite pony, Rarity.

I think this one needs to be posted here as well.


Image



The Plague Doctor doesn't seem like the most natural mini to make for Chibi Kingdom Death.  I was looking through my bits box one day, and I found an old Rackham goblin, and I could see all of the conversion that I'd need to make.



For his color scheme, I decided to make a tribute to the Shovel Knight villain/hero Plague Knight.  I'll probably do a couple other Shovel Knight characters as well (Specter Knight would make a good survivor as well).

For reference (in case none of you are Shovel Knight fans)

Thankfully, most Gloomhaven enemies match minis that I've already got in chibi form (Zombies, Skeletons, human archers, slimes, etc). But for the PCs, and for the more distinct races, I felt that I needed to create some minis.

Here are the first four PCs that I made. They're all starting classes, so there's no need to worry about spoilers.

Image

The Inox Brute. This was the first Chibi Gloomhaven character that I finished. I was very excited to make him. The body comes from a Cyclopes from Impact! Miniatures. The head is mostly my own sculpt- although I did have some plastic horns leftover from various GW kits.

Image

The orchid spellweaver was a really fun one to make. She started life as two separate ninjas from Ninja All Stars (head and body). I really liked sculpting all of the crystals on her.

Image

The Vermling gave me a bit of trouble. I needed something between a goblin and a Skaven, that could also fit in with the chibis I'd been making. I looked around for ones that would fit the style well, and eventually discovered that the Wiz-Kids Pathfinder Goblins were close to perfect. They just needed their ears fixed and tails attached.

Image

THe last one is the human Scoundrel. I made here eyes glow to match the artwork (my wife played this character, but it definitely took her a minute to recognize that the character was, in fact, human.


Here we have another starting class- the Quatryl Tinkerer, While he is mostly made out of green stuff, there are bits from a Reaper Bones Kobold underneath there.

Image

Image


And a few of the monsters- Harrowers and Ancient Turrets:

The Harrowers were made by taking the Mr. and Ms. Bones hoods and putting them on various different robes. A lot of the robes were just skirts that were originally part of taller minis. Again, I worked with bones materials for these- Bones are easy to convert with and cheat to boot.

Image

Image


For the Turrets, I rummaged through my bits box for various things that would work. What I ended up with were a lot of mech bits. These each were unused arm options- it is sometimes nice to have leftover arms from various warjacks and mechs.
