Errtu, Balor (Legend of Drizzt Board Game)


Recommended Posts

The current center-piece of my Demonic Army, a Balrog "Balor."

This is "Errtu, Balor" from the Legend of Drizzt D&D Board Game.  I painted him up about a year ago and he was one of the first huge minis I ever attempted.  There's a lot that I wish I'd done better looking back on it, but you have to make mistakes to get better!

Though I don't love the colors now, I'm pretty proud of the OSL effects from the whip and sword.  Even with a sub-par execution, it adds something extra to spice up an otherwise drab mini.

While I think the whip looks alright, the sword really suffered.  Most of this is due to the brown ink I tried using to shade the mini.  The kind of ink I was using was not acrylic based and continued to re-hydrate while painting.  It bled up through the white paint on the sword and I couldn't get the electric glow I was trying for.  Lessons learned.

The back of this guy is also kind of boring, and those wings have a tendency to curl under no matter how many times I boiled and straightened them.

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
       
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.

      Hi everyone, I completed this one last night. 02181, Sirithis the Succubus sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is a Dark Heaven Legends model. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint and mounted her on a 40 mm round base sku: 74033. Censored for the younger audience. Uncensored version of the pictures can be found on my blog or FB page.

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple more demons for you today.  This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D.  These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

      Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.

      If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.

      Also, how do you paint insect wings?  They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?

      Wizards of the Coast D&D metal model.
      From the year Two-Thou-sand (you have to say it like Conan O'Brien)
      Rescued from the Island of Lost Pewture, (aka my friends rpg storage shed)  and painted up. I love his goggles, I don't think you see enough of those on wizard minis. I can see a fireball coming.
