So Where Can Find a Good Figure of a Hatfright? :)

Recommended Posts

  This is fun, and certainly gives one ideas for some interesting conversions... :lol:

 

A researcher fed the names of D&D beasts into a neural network, and let it come up with it's own names for some new D&D creatures based on the patterns it detected.

The computer should have to provide pictures. What's a Hatfright look like? And a Purple Bird is either rather boring, or utterly horrifying, depending on which parent it takes after...

I have this mental picture of some sort of largish crustacean, like a hermit crab, but instead of a shell, it steals hats. And once you've got one in your helmet, you'll have to kill it to get your helmet back... and if you're a wizard or rogue, just give it UP, man, that hat is GONE...

I love that!

 

Pity the poor soul who puts their helmet on their head without looking inside first...

Exactly. A nuisance creature encounter over breakfast and spell memorization... albeit a nuisance encounter with a HELLACIOUS AC.

And worse if your wizard, rogue, or whoever has a magic hat.

I never sold a hatfright when I was selling hats. Gosh darnit!!

 

 Maybe you did and just didn't know it...

I hear they've developed a hunting method involving sneaking into hat shops to be sold, devouring the customers who bought them, and then sneaking back into the shops to be sold again.

I get it now!

 

Hatfrights are mimics with fashion sense. Why should furniture and household items get all the attention?

No. Nonono... MIMIC FAMILIAR!

 

All those witches and wizards that wear those huge, pointy hats; the hats are actually mimic famliars! It would explain the habit of a good many wizards - and witches - to go around with this ridiculous hat and no apparent familiar, AND how they can go through all kinds of stuff - falling off horses, getting smacked around, laying the smack down - /without losing the hat/.

      I painted this guy up for D&D to be my Warlock. Sadly it may be some time before he fills that role again. Photos still look a bit washed out. :( The Base should look like floorboards and they do in person.

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic

      Hellborn Troll
      from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures
       
      I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).
       

       
      I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.
       

       
      It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.
       
      Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.
       

       
      Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.
       

       
      I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.
       
      I am quite happy with him so far.  
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy!
