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?
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?
More demonic fun today. I was in need of some Bulezau to greet my players as they first entered the Abyss. D&D lore describes Bulezau as gaunt minotaur-like creatures. The Beastman Warriors would have also been a great stand-in for this, but I was working with what I had on hand, which happened to be the Minitaurs from Bones 4. I didn't bother with the 4th minitaur as it didn't match the rest of the set, and I had a single evening to get them finished.
A little shorter and stockier than described, they still fit the mold as not-quite-a-minotaur. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I love the newer sculpts that were so prevalent in Bones 4. They're less clutter, have larger smooth surfaces, and in general just lend themselves well to simple smooth paint jobs. Lots of room for letting the paint add detail, and less time spent squinting at strange shapes.

What unconventional uses have you found for minis? Any monsters you've repurposed to meet your needs?
Who let the dogs out (of hell)?
Hi everyone. Back again with some infernal pooches.
These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion. They were fun and challenging. All those glowing lava details were a pain. I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though. Also had fun with the lava bases.

In all, I like these guys. Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis. I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
Which Hound turned out best?
