Well, that certainly seems to be an, um, "appropriate" shade of brown for an otyugh.   :;):  It'll be interesting to see the finished paint job.  Have fun!  Where did this mini come from?  It certainly looks a lot like an otyugh, but I know it's not from any of the D&D minis that Wizards released over the years, and pretty sure it's not from the Chain Mail miniatures that preceded those either.

 

Tangent, but what's the name of the other mini in the pic, and who makes it?

 

edit:  Checked the name of the website in your "factory paint job" photo.  Cool, going really old-school here!  Still would like to know about the other mini though.  Thanks!

LJN toys had a tie in with the 80's D&D cartoon. And if you think this thing looks like a pile of dung, you should take a look at some of the video games LJN published in the 80's!

 

Here's its base made with Infine Roleplay's talc powder texture paste recipe. Talc + white glue + paint. Pressed the mini through plastic bag to make an indent for the 3 feet. Let it dry overnight, then drybrushed grey to white.

Early 80's, TSR put out a "range" of plastic figures that included this neo-otyugh.  As I recall, there were some adventurers, humanoid monsters and some other monsters like this (carrion crawler, shambling mound, etc).  All were sized around "Star Wars" figure scale.

 

I have this guy in all his orange and yellow glory sitting beside Dr. Strange on my old-stuff shelf.

That's what I was talking about. TSR did not directly produce the figures; they were made by LJN toys under license from TSR. They were not up to the standards of the Star Wars figures from Kenner, for the most part, which struck me as a dratted shame, and they were painfully undermarketed. 

 

I was right at the age where I was "too old for toys" when those were for sale. I regret that.

Cool! Can't wait to see what you do with this one. I have the LJN shambling mound and fire elemental and have used both to stand in for huge and gargantuan versions of of those critters. But that was before I learned to paint miniatures so I'd love to paint them now

      The Plane of Shadow exists beside the mortal world, one step beyond the veil—and  your heroes can enter this otherworldly realm of fey shadows, undead horrors, and wild adventure!
       
      The Book of Ebon Tides provides a complete guide to the people, places, heroes, magic, and monsters of the Plane of Shadow, a land where fey magic, illusion, and trickery are as potent as steel.
       
      From shadow goblins to ghouls, from elves to bearfolk, this is a world of mystery and enchantment. On the muddy black riverbanks and along alleys paved with bone, new heroes wander in the light of the moon, summon lunar devils, and battle in crumbling castles. 
       
      Come explore a shadow world next door to every other, just one step down the shadow road. . . .

      This is Miguel Zavala's redesigned Umber Hulk, printed on my Mars Pro and painted with Vallejo acrylics.
       
      It's a monster I haven't used much, if at all, in my own campaign, but my favourite character of old, Sir Fnord the Pretty Neat died of them twice, both times by having his head ripped clean off.

      I finally got around to doing some basing on my take on reaper's Gauth, in bones I do not know the SKU unfortunately, but I think it is from Bones 4? 
       
      Anyway, I tried to paint him up as a White dragon, but I also wanted to keep it interesting, so I highlighted from three different colours on separate parts of the hide, mostly pale purple, grey on the central spines down his back, and turquoise on the belly!
       
      Take a look, let me know what you think, c&c's more than welcome!

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
       
      Comments, criticisms and advice as ever more than welcome!
