So guys. I repainted an old D&D mini, in the process learning that it is kinda rare I guess lol..oops! She looks pretty badass if I say so myself!
But yeah! This sculpt is awesome and was super fun to paint.
My husband runs a couple D&D games, I play in one every other week that is a MONSTER campaign and it is so fun! So in honor of tonight's game night, I wanted to share her!
I play a Ranger Drider, this is her! (My other party members are a Rogue Gargoyle, Swashbuckler Rogue Mindflayer and a Cleric Shield Guardian, I can post those minis too, if ya'll like)
I used some mystery reaper samples for some base coats and Folkart brand Coloshift paints for accent and omg, this stuff is awesome. I can get it for about $4 a bottle (2 oz bottles) here in Central NY. It is really cool to work with and semi translucent so I was able to layer and manipulate the tones. I wish I could really capture the scintillating nature of these paints!
Hope you love her as much as I do and no one hates me for repainting an old classic, hard to find mini! lol
Thanks! C&C welcome!
These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!!
I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful!
After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them.
Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!)
While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya!
Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it!
Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate.
Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!

This one was on my shelf of shame for quite a while, until my daughter told me off for having it lying around. So I sculpted a shirt for her out of greenstuff which was a fun learning process. I needed her for my D&D game last week, so she got the speed paint finish. Her skin is the dusky flesh triad with some light grey added.
