Beholder, DnD Miniatures Repaint

Recommended Posts

Great job! I like to see people 'fixing up' prepaints, some of them are actually pretty decent figures underneath the lousy (factory) paint job.

They look good!

 

You should put pics of the prepaint schemes as a before/after. It will help sell how awesome you have done.

Thanks all for the kind comments!

The DDM line of prepainted figures has quite a few nice sculpts. I was kind of disappointed when Wizkids got the contract for the new line of DnD miniatures. I haven't been impressed with their previous sculpts and the new DnD line isn't impressive.

Didn't think of taking a before pic :/ When I repaint a prepainted miniature I usually just basecoat it and then quickshade. It is an improvement of the original paintjob (otherwise I wouldn't do it:) but not that much to look at otherwise :)

I meant more just post a stock photo of the DDM prepaint so people have a vague idea of what to compare it to (even though the stock photos tend to be much higher quality than the actual PPM)

Ah, I get it. Although the stock photo for the two beholders are quite good :) Almost want to take back the Beholder Lich now... :)

The difference between the stock photo paint job and the actual prepainted paint job reminds me of some of those old MAD Magazine articles, "What they promise and what you actually get."

 

Nice repaint.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of Wizards of the Coast 88358, Skeletal Orc.
      This Chainmail model was sculpted by Will Hannah in 2001 for the Ahmut faction.

      I recently finished up this book nook.  I was inspired by Black Magic Craft (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxOWFbYNTOo&fbclid=IwAR0KPsFmpNYhvNHcca_3uWtP4U3fLk1F8InSrhXuLQB94Fj0EPAc_wwDbHo).  I made this for a good friend that I have played DND with who is moving and wanted a little going away present to give to him. Painted with mix of Reaper Paints and Vallejo paints.  The terrain is 3D printed, stalagmites are from Thingiverse and the ruins are from Printable Scenery (https://www.printablescenery.com/) that I modified on Meshmixer.  This was my first time working with poured resin and LED lighting, was a lot of fun and now I am definitely going to make one for myself.

      Hi all.  I've got a few minis floating around that were painted when my skills were lesser.  Been humoring the idea of touching them up.  My finished minis are sealed with a coat of Krylon Matte spray.  Any tips for touching up minis?  Anything to look out for?
