Dungeons & Dragons – More Miniatures

Hello Friends,

Last Saturday I had some time to paint some more miniatures.  The one who looks like Gimli from “Lord of the Rings” is going to be played as someone else as far as I know.  It is made of a heavy metal (no, not that music my son and I love) type of miniature that did not have any kind of primer on it that I know of.  It was much easier to paint than the plastic ones from The Wrath of Ashardalon game.  The one on the far right is some type of woman warrior that is made of the same material.  Painting her armor and her weapons was a lot of fun!  I liked using the silver and gold paints.  The figure in the middle is called a Dragonborn Wizard.  That one was really fun to do even though he is one of the plastic ones from the game.  I loved playing with the highlights on his cloak and putting the gold accents on his outfit (whatever it’s called…)  I am not all that knowledgeable of the clothing that these creatures wear, okay?  Ha, ha.  And I forgot to look through the book to see what exactly they do.  Well, if it is a wizard, some type of sorcery, of course, but I don’t know the nature of it being “dragonborn.”  I’ll have to read up on that.  I have at least two more I think of that type to do.  But they will be different colors.

Also, I really enjoyed doing the blending of the green shades with some of the gold to do “Gimli’s” cloak!  That was a challenge to get the highlights the way I wanted them.  The woman warrior’s hair was fun to do, too.

My daughter put them outside on our glass patio table to take the pictures for me on her iPod camera.  (One of these days I hope to get some type of iPod with a camera or a better phone with a good camera.)  But she doesn’t mind doing it for me which I appreciate very much.

So this weekend I will tackle a few more of these.  I am really enjoying doing this project even though it is a little hard on the eyes.  However, the magnifying lamp I purchased is the best!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. Aw…how sweet of George to pop on to say thank you. 🙂 As I’ve said before Pasty, you’ve got a heck of a lot more patience than I do. They look great! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. The ‘heavy metal’ is lead. All of these game miniatures used to be cast in lead. I liked lead so much better than plastic…but that’s a topic for an entire blog post by itself. 😉

    Thank you for painting them and participating in my new/old hobby! I love them.
