One of the three minis in the "44036 Dreadmere Females" pack
aka "Serena, Dreadmere Rogue" as she is known in the metal version.
More like, "Serena, Dark Brotherhood Assassin" if you ask me. Nothing screams secret stealth assassin on a mission to do bloody murder as having members-only assassin guild special shrouded armour that is distinct and different from all other armour types and uniforms...
Hm. I thought I heard something...

One of the oldest Bones models in existence:
Reaper Bones 77009 "Werewolf", from the 2011 O.G. pre-kickstarter Bones lineup. This mini is also available in metal under the name 02747 "Jean Paul DuChamps, Werewolf". I just got the hankering to paint this one. Nothing special.
Oui! Le loup-garou! En garde!

At the very end of the Lost Valley, the bossfight: Clubtail!
A plant eating 4-ton tank armed with a deadly morning star tail, an armoured hide with spikes, -a fantasy version of an Ankylosaur. The clubtail is larger than the fossil record of Ankylosaur supports. Also the spikes are overstated in comparison. A lot.
At any rate, the Ankylosaur was contemporary with the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Triceratops. All are from what is now North America in the late Cretaceous period, roughly 68 million years ago. It needed that armour. The question remains: What did it use the club-like tail for? To smesh predators? Rivals? Trees? An impressive display to attract mates? All of the above?
And the clubtail has spikes. Did I mention the spikes?
I detest painting spikes. It takes absolutely ages and I invariably lose patience and botch the job. These look OK for tabletop but do not stand up to close scrutiny at all. At least it is done. Together with the entire Lost Valley Expansion! Woot!
The Clubtail is, in fact, the distant forebearer of the modern day Dragon Tortoise aka Koopa.
I made it a 125mm x 100mm base.

Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures still make some great D&D monsters, here are three more:
Wave 1: Displacer Beast
The Displacer Beast is one of the iconic D&D monsters, described as a six legged panther with a pair of enormous tentacles growing out of it's back. If that is not bad enough, the schtick of this beast is that is displaces. This is an ability that makes it appear as it is a few feet off from where it actually is, so while the party are slashing at the image in thin air, the beast invisibly outflanks them with it's powerful claws and massive bite attack coming from seemingly out of nowhere.
Where are the mirrors I need to start breaking?
I rebased it on a 40mm round. This is a Wave 1 mini, released a few years ago. The tentacles needed repositioning using the hot water/cold water technique.
Wave 11: Grell & Basilisk
Who names these monsters? Grell? What kind of a name is that? This is obviously the Flying Spaghetti Monster!
The tentacles did not turn out all that well. The purple was too strong compared to the other colours and dried too fast to blend. Bah!
Check out the big brain on Brett!
And in the same pack as the Grell, a Basilisk:
This one was significantly smaller than I expected. Please disregard the piece of flock-fluff on it's right side middle. This is a loose particle I did not see was stuck there until after the pictures were taken. I just cannot be bothered with taking new ones.
30mm x 20mm oval base.

I have no idea who sculpted these, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.
