I received my first Dungeon Crate yesterday, and the theme was dragons. First off, there was a mini-catapult that can roll a d20. There are 4 dragon breath weapon tokens (fire, poison, acid, small fire) from Advanced Deployment. 160 more words
Otherworld Miniatures – Pig Faced Orcs. These are wonderful sculpts to paint…just the right amount of detail. Except for the eyes. I think I’m going to have to learn to paint eyes (gulp!), otherwise they look like they’re squinting in photos. Orc Tribe: Squintface Skullsplitter.
One quickly discovers that the same cloak was used over and over. I love the orc on the right’s floppy hood.
Reaper wolves and dire wolves. I think the dire wolves turned out ok, but I’m pretty sure no real-world wolf ever sported such horrible looking fur. I have fur fatigue, though, and they are unlikely to be repainted.
A Tom Meier sculpt for the De Terlizzi Masterworks line from Dark Sword. Great sculpt (of course), and the casting was near flawless, requiring all of about 30 seconds of cleanup. I really love this figure, though I’m a bit nervous about transporting it around to games.
I’ve been trying to push my highlighting a step beyond what looks good up close under the painting light so that the paint jobs read better on the gaming table. I think I could take it further.
A few random figures that I’ve had around forever. I’m certain the spear-armed lady on the right is a Reaper figure. I suspect the skeleton is also Reaper. The priest might be an old 25mm Grenadier figure, but its provenance is lost to me in the murky depths of time.
I fished this cute girl out of the Box o’ Goodwill from the Reaper forums, so it’s only right that she make her way back to another forum member as an exchange mini for Secret Sophie 2016. 134 more words
