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.
