Another day another devil.
Several months ago I was searching for a suitable mini for a chain devil. I was in need of a few of them to represent hellish prison guards. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of options that I liked. Most of the official pre-painted chain devils look like awkward Michelin Men. So I went looking for a suitable substitute.
I settled on the Pelegarth Brutes from CMON's Wrath of Kings. A few modifications later and...
Three frightening and unrelenting guards of hell.

I really liked working on these guys. It was a lot of fun reinterpreting an existing monster and finding a way to make it unique. They're definitely a favorite of mine. Plus I love that the chains actually dangle and swing when moving the minis around.
Check out the rest of my Infernal Army HERE.
How have you reinterpreted a mini in your own projects?
Blood War - An Ongoing Painting Project
Time to start another WIP to keep track of my growing armies of fiends. Unlike my other two WIPs, Frostrun and Dark Tide, this one does not have a D&D campaign attached to it. Though the project did start because of a game. My players had been facing a threat of the barriers between worlds collapsing. This of course lead to demons and devils spilling into their world, and eventually lead to them traveling to the lower planes.
We had nearly wrapped up that plot point before in-person games had to be put on hold. And though I likely have enough minis to get me through that arc, I love how the groups have been shaping up, and I'm now motivated to continue to expand the respective armies.
The Blood War
In D&D lore, the Blood War is an endless turf war between the Devils of the Nine Hells, and the Demons of the Abyss. There's a bunch of extra fluff in there, but most of it is kind of complicated and, in my opinion, uninteresting. At this point all that I care about it painting up some minis to represent at least 1 of each various type of Demon and Devil. And if I still have steam after that I can look into the neutral Yugoloths.
Up first we have the Devils. I' like the bases on these guys best. I definitely prefer some of the warmer red tones better than the dark ones, and the lava bases are a nice touch to break up the red as well. So far we have the following:
Imps - (Nolzur's)
Hell Hounds - (44100)
Legion Devils - (77065, 89039)
And a sneak peak of the following:
The demons here have a colder color palette. I tried keeping to shades of blue, green, and purple. I might try to brainstorm some more interesting basing options, but for now the purple earth is enough to differentiate and unite them. So far we have the following:
Quasits - (77335 and Nolzur's)
Bulezau - (77680)
Barlgura - (77260)
And a sneak peak of the following:
I've got a handful of Demons primed and waiting for paint as well. This project will be ongoing, likely between other projects. But it will be fun to see their numbers increase.
Every Infernal Army needs its footsoldiers. Today I have Legion Devils, or Merregon as they are known in 5E. There's a lot of variation in lore with these guys between editions, so it really opened up the door for interpreting them how I wished. So here's a handful of Legion Devils.
Not the most impressive of paintjobs, but they work for filling out a horde. I am interested in revisiting them with my more recent TMM painting technique, so maybe I'll add to their ranks soon.

I really like reinterpreting the creatures that exist in D&D lore. I have all of the models, and more that I want, and it's nice finding ways to utilize the ones I didn't have a use for. I also love seeing a group of cohesive minis coming together. What else does my infernal army need?
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).
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).

And up next,
These three imps are all Nolzur's from "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719 and "Familiars" #WZK72563

Was definitely going cross-eyed after painting these tiny guys.
What's the smallest mini you've ever painted? (Feel free to share pictures)
