here is the objective :

and the description :

 

The king of the evil Fomorians is a hideous giant with an eye in the middle of his forehead. When this eye is opened, it shoots forth a poisonous beam that destroys everything it touches. Balor’s hatred of the Tuatha De Danann knows no bounds; in Irish myths, the Tuatha and the Fomorians fought an endless series of wars. He was killed by Lugh of the Long Hand at the second Battle of Magh Tuireadh (Moytura in English); Lugh’s sling stone drove Balor’s eye to the back of his head and turned its deadly power against the Fomorian army, which was destroyed. Lugh then cut off Balor’s head, which fell to the ground face-down; Balor’s eye burned a hole in the ground, which became Loch na Súil ("Lake of the Eye") in County Sligo.

Oh, that will be very nice indeed. So, Balor is the king of the Fomor, AND almost certainly the inspiration for the Beholder's eye-beams and disintegration ray? Strong credentials!

      Hi folks.  I've got plenty of minis painted from the last two years to slowly share with you all.  Here we have the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures Human Druid 73390.  I was in need of a Firbolg Monk for my party, and Nolzur's had yet to release any of their firbolg models.  Since the character would be traversing a frigid wasteland, I also wanted to find a character who was properly clothed - no sleeveless/shirtless monks for me.  I settled on this character because he was properly rangery and most importantly - bearded.
       
      I chopped off his sword and the antlers on his back, glued a toothpick to his empty hand, sculpted some acceptable ears using green stuff and gave him some paint.  I really like how it turned out and it managed to feel like the perfect blend between monk and naturalist.
       
      Though i must admit, his face is a bit muppety.

      Pau, is a Firbolg from the tribes of Frostrun. He set out on a pilgrimage like many Firbolg do, and found himself at a monastery to the south, at the edge of the Frost.  The monastery, besides providing shelter to the wary traveler, depicted a statue of Firbolg.  Pau took this as a sign and spent several years training in the way of the Four Elements.  Armed with this new power, Pau has set back out to the North to return home and restore order to Frostrun.

      What kind of conversions have you done to make the perfect character?

      Still trying to cover all my basics with this classic troll design. I'm trying to get better with my basing, this time incorporating sand and some broken up wood chips.

      Ok, this is a mini that I made as a joke for a friend of mine. He GMs a lot of games, and has always been a bit fascinated by the fact that the Half Dragon template can be added to almost any kind of creature. Including ones that reproduce by dividing.
      Truly, the biology of dragons is a wonder.
      Anyway, he got to completely wreck the party with this Half Black Dragon Gelatinous Cube.
      I made it by combining some parts from an invisible dragon and gelatinous cube minis (both from Reaper’s Bones line). I used water effect for gap filling and a bit of sculpting, and added a little color with some thinned down paints. I wanted to give the impression that it picks up debris from the floor as it moves along.
      Except for the eyes, which are totally opaque so that they can show up. Seriously, I think they’re the only part that really shows up at all in the pictures, but you get the idea.


      In an unrelated project for the same friend, I found a really strange bit that I think is supposed to be the head of a dragon, but seriously looks like a half dragon spider. So that got painted too.
      Man, dragons really make some poor choices.

      This guy has been sitting in my unpainted minis pile for a while, looking forward to eventually getting to use him in dnd.

      Galladon, Male Wizard

      This guy as it turns out can be disassemble into pieces!
      Win for me, because I hate detailed undercuts.
       
      And I do not like the staff (fish/dragon)head.
      Does not fit the character imo.
      The red squiggly turned out verynice!
       
      FINISHED here!
