D&D Miniatures Painting Continued….
Posted by whitefeatherfloating
Hello Friends. The last few days I worked on a few more miniatures for my husband’s Dungeons & Dragons game. I have finished six out of about 50 that I am planning to complete. I reached the deadline for the first six that he wanted which is today. It feels good to complete a goal! He is packing up all of his stuff and getting ready to meet with his group as I type this.
So here is what I have done so far:
As you can see the Kobolds are in the the front. The one on the far right was the first one I did, then the middle one and then the far left one. I even added some blood on a couple of their daggers. Fun stuff! Remember they are small creatures and usually work together in small armies against their enemies!
The miniatures in the back are called Cultists. Apparently they worship dragons. They also carry human skulls on their backs, probably from victims they have sacrificed to a hungry dragon! Yikes! I think I would stay away from them myself. However, they were fun to paint! I especially love the purple and yellow one. I had two different colors of purple so I was able to put nice highlights on the robe. I was able to use a rust color for highlights on the brown robed one, and a gray I mixed for the black robed cultist. I enjoyed doing these a lot! I did two of them yesterday! However, not all of the empty eye sockets showed up on the skulls very well because the sculpting was a little rough, but I am amazed that anyone could actually sculpt miniatures. My hat goes off to those artists!
Since it is Sunday I am planning to work out. My arm and shoulder are doing fine, but I have a bit of a twinge in my back that needs to be taken care of. Stretching and exercise always helps! So after that I will probably read before I cook dinner since George won’t be home until 6:00 or so. Easy tuna casserole tonight! It’s already 1:00 – I gotta get movin’!
Hopefully, my next post will be the painting I have started of my friends’s dog that is another surprise. I hope it turns out like I want it to. I’m still trying to decide what to do in the background. I have started on it, though, and I really love the new colors of watercolors I bought to do the eyes! I love the way they turned out. So until next time…
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
