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/.

      A pair of Bones bears (or the bear Bones, if you like)
       
      I tried to paint these from pictures of real-life grizzly bears. Every time I paint an animal it ends up with a chaotic riot of washes and highlights in different colours until it looks enough like the source images to satisfy me. I doubt if I could paint another one and get the same colour! The coat of the Dire bear is much coarser, which really shows in the photo (like the fine moulding line on the Cave Bear's face) but is less bothersome in more natural light.
       
      I painted these as companions to my Stone Giant tribe, and you can see the frankly ridiculous diorama I built over here...

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple more demons for you today.  This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D.  These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.
       

       
      More Below the Spoiler:
       
      Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.

      If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.

      Also, how do you paint insect wings?  They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?

      Continuing my posting spree. This beholder is the fist model I have printed and painted. I went for a very simple,  classic look, and I was really pleased with the bright purples. I have been enjoying MZ's catalog, but man, printing stuff is a lot of work.
       
      I really enjoy painting eyes, so this subject was a treat.The Spectator is now on my shortlist to paint thanks to the positive experience I had with the dodgeball of doom.
