Every fiendish army needs tiny minions to throw through the meat grinders. Today I've got some assorted imps and quasits (the demonic counterpart to imps for you non-D&D folk).
These fun little guys are the grunts of the demonic legions. The front two are Quasits from the Nolzur's Unpainted set "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719. The back three are Reaper Bones Hordlings (77335).

And up next,
These three imps are all Nolzur's from "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719 and "Familiars" #WZK72563

Was definitely going cross-eyed after painting these tiny guys.
What's the smallest mini you've ever painted? (Feel free to share pictures)
In case any D&D/Fantasy folks need a cute calendar for 2021:
Owlbear cubs The Baby Bestiary 7th Annual Calendar
Each year, since the inception of the Baby Bestiary, we've put together an annual calendar featuring a new talented artist to illustrate to bring to life our adorable calendar.
With a different artist, we can explore the adorable through their eyes, see them experiment with new styles and interpretations of what the Baby Bestiary means to them. With every passing year, we’ve had amazing pieces that have resonated with our community.
Artist Feature: Kelsey
Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey, also known around the internet as Keymonster or just Key. I am a full-time, freelance artist and illustrator working out of the Pacific Northwest. My creative passions center around animals, plants and the fantastical worlds they exist in. I love creating plant/animal hybrids and integrating botanical motifs and imagery into the worlds that I build as well as creating adorable little creatures of all shapes and sizes getting into a bunch of mischief.
Features for 2021
This year we're launching a little late but we've had April start working on the pieces already and we're on track to finish the calendars on time!

Presenting Tzandi, a member of Monkey's Troupe from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
Been painting this one on and off for a while, as I could only work on her teeny tiny details in small bursts (She essentially feels like a much larger scale mini that's been shrunk down). I think taking my time paid off as I'm pretty pleased with the results.
This also means I've actually finished a set of something for a change (At least until Long Ma the dragon comes out):-
The full Monkey's Troupe.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures still make some great D&D monsters, here are three more:
Wave 1: Displacer Beast
The Displacer Beast is one of the iconic D&D monsters, described as a six legged panther with a pair of enormous tentacles growing out of it's back. If that is not bad enough, the schtick of this beast is that is displaces. This is an ability that makes it appear as it is a few feet off from where it actually is, so while the party are slashing at the image in thin air, the beast invisibly outflanks them with it's powerful claws and massive bite attack coming from seemingly out of nowhere.
Where are the mirrors I need to start breaking?
I rebased it on a 40mm round. This is a Wave 1 mini, released a few years ago. The tentacles needed repositioning using the hot water/cold water technique.
Wave 11: Grell & Basilisk
Who names these monsters? Grell? What kind of a name is that? This is obviously the Flying Spaghetti Monster!
The tentacles did not turn out all that well. The purple was too strong compared to the other colours and dried too fast to blend. Bah!
Check out the big brain on Brett!
And in the same pack as the Grell, a Basilisk:
This one was significantly smaller than I expected. Please disregard the piece of flock-fluff on it's right side middle. This is a loose particle I did not see was stuck there until after the pictures were taken. I just cannot be bothered with taking new ones.
30mm x 20mm oval base.
Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures
I have no idea who sculpted these, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.
