Maledrakh's Nolzurs Displacer Beast, Grell, Basilisk

Recommended Posts

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!

40mm base.


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.


Nice doggie?

30mm x 20mm oval base.



Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures


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

      Every fiendish army needs tiny minions to throw through the meat grinders.  Today I've got some assorted imps and quasits (the demonic counterpart to imps for you non-D&D folk).
      First up,
      The Quasits

      These fun little guys are the grunts of the demonic legions.  The front two are Quasits from the Nolzur's Unpainted set "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719.  The back three are Reaper Bones Hordlings (77335).
      More Below the Spoiler:
      And up next,
      The Imps

      These three imps are all Nolzur's from "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719 and "Familiars" #WZK72563
      More Below the Spoiler
      Was definitely going cross-eyed after painting these tiny guys.
      What's the smallest mini you've ever painted? (Feel free to share pictures)

      The full moon casts a pale blue light across the rugged white landscape. Tall pine trees cling to the rocky ground, branches stirring, shedding their cold white burden as the wolves breathe past. The pack is on the move, and the land is trembling beneath their step. They move with purpose, something is not as it was before. There! An affront; a boat pulled ashore, a small group of fur-clad prey around a campfire, round shields and axes in sight. From the treeline the windwolves move, silent, swift, cold gusts of dark shadow, spirits of malice descending upon the men with claws of ice and fangs of doom.
      A huge load of pictures and musings to be found below
