Inspired by others 'project threads' - and with a return to face-to-face gaming on the horizon - I thought I'd start my own thread of minis I'm painting for WOTC's Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden (D&D 5e).
If nothing else this will help to keep me focused on the relevant bits of my unpainted pile, despite all the Bones V calling out to me 🙂
Feedback welcome - with the caveat that I'm an average painter at best, and aiming for table use not display!
Anyone planning on playing this campaign might not want to read further; the minis will inevitably spoil some of the encounters.
To start off, I've lined up the following:
Grimtalon the Roc (Reaper 77946)
Frost Giant Skeleton (Gale Force 9 71127)
Kings of War: Northern Alliance Clansmen (Mantic Games MGKWL301)
Frost Shaman Boudi (Hasselfree HFH187)
Frost Mage Matthias (Hasselfree HFH199)
Semira Marise (Hasselfree HFX023)
Polar Bear (WizKids DeepCuts WZK73727-W9)
Hoping to get cracking this weekend. There's also a dragon on the way, and maybe a few others...
It's a cougar! Specifically it's a firepelt cougar, from the world of Golarion (Pathfinder RPG).
It's also my submission for the Reaper Challenge League under the January theme of "Ice or Fire".
Pathfinder authors have described firepelts as having black-and-red or "autumnal" coloration, but I know of only one image in a Paizo book: the 5th anniversary book of Rise of the Runelords shows one as mostly black with thin orange stripes running down its back and orange rings on its tail. I used that as a point of departure, plus extra reference in the form of photos of cougars, and photos of rare recessive-gene "king cheetahs" that have stripes and large blotchy spots instead of the usual small round spots.
I cut away parts of this guy's integral base, and sculpted a grouping of rocks that the cougar is descending.
Happy New Year's Eve everyone. To end the year with a little snow, I completed this base today. I had painted the Yeti two years ago, and he was only lacking a thematic basis. This is the Bones version of 77434, Yeti Chieftain sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The artificial snow is BF4103 from Army Painter Battlefields. The icicles were made with pieces of translucent plastic and gloss Mod Podge.
