D&D miniatures re-paints - part 3 Drow

Right this is the last batch of my recent painting sessions this time the Drow evil elves of the underdark worshippers of the spider queen Lloth. Ever since reading the Drizzt novels I've been fond of Drow. Sadly cool as they are Drow aren't much fun to paint. The monster manual description is black skin, black clothes, black equipment eerrrr white hair doesn't give you much to work with on the painting front anyway...

... From top to bottom we have.

1) Drow preistess of Lloth

2) Yochlol demon - Handmaidens of Lloth

3) Dinn Do'urden Drider - Driders are what you get when a Drow upsets the godess Lloth half gaint spider half dark elf. This particular Drider is supposed to be Drizzt's brother Dinn although in the novels Dinn fights with two axes and not a sword.

4) Drow wizard

5) Draegloth - apparently this is what you get when a Glabrezu Deamon and a Drow preistess get it on.

6) Drow warriors

next up (when they're painted) more Drow, some Orcs and some adventurers

Cheers Jon

D&D miniatures part 2 - Devils and Demons

A few more D&D re-paints this time various denizens of the lower planes. From top to bottom we have

1) Barghast - nasty creatures that can be giant blue goblins or big canine creatures

2) Chaos creature - large lump of constantly mutating flesh

3) Rage Demon - can't find a description in my monster manuals so I'm going to use it as a hordling from the plane of Gray wastes

4) Spined devil - again I can't find a description so another (rather horrible) miniature to use as a hordling

5) Yugoloths - two Mezzoloths (insect like) yugoloth footsoldiers and a guardian yugoloth.

Next up Drow

Cheers Jon

More D&D miniatures part 1 - Random Monsters

I've been slowly painting up D&D miniatures both from the Legend of Drizzt game and from a big job lot of random miniatures I picked up cheap on ebay. I spent last night photographing the last few weeks work and to night up posting up various random monsters. So from top to bottom

1) Infernal armour - I couldn't find this model in my AD&D second edition Monsters manual but I figure it would make a very acceptable Iron Golem or Helmed Horror.

2) Blue spawn ambusher - I had no idea what this was a quick look on line told me it was some sort of D&D 4th edition dragon spawn (bright blue not being the ideal colour for an ambush predator IMO). I didn't like that idea so I just painted it up as some sort of giant horned lizard

3) Dire bear - Large mutant bear

4) Taer - My monster manual description of a Taer was "vile humanoids, live in caves, throw spears". Didn't give me much to go on so I followed the original colour scheme. I think I need a few more of these to make viable skirmish group.

5) Dark Naga

6) Ent - well it's not really an Ent it's a ???? ravager no idea what that is looks like a treeman to me.

7) Feral troll - this miniature is from the Legend of Drizzt game and is called a feral troll. It's way to big to be a normal troll IMO so after reading through my monster manual I decided it would be a giant troll which is what you get when a troll and hill giant decide to get jiggy with it (eeeggggh). Unlike a normal trolls , who are green, giant trolls have brown skin.

More pictures soon
