Miniature Showcase

Sometimes a miniature you get just doesn’t evoke the theme you want to portray in a campaign. This is when I usually repaint some or all of the miniature to change how they look. The differences don’t seem very different at first but they can change a lot in the scenery you present players.

Gjallarhorn is my Watcher Paladin, Brenna Wolheart’s, steed in our current campaign. M y husband bought him for me on Etsy. Since it is a celestial spirit, I wanted the ram shape that it took to reflect that. I used a new white primer on the miniature to start.

NPC Spotlight

Now that the story of BaRuhk and Sukra is over I wanted to showcase some of my favorite NPC’s from the first campaign. We had a lot of cool people meet us throughout the course of our adventures but some just stood out from the rest. These people were all creations of my husband and DM. For this spotlight we will be focusing on Sheila Coppertree.

This miniature was part of a two piece commission. The client was very specific with the look he wanted and I painted it as close as possible to the original reference. These are shots of the miniature before and after priming. I had to do multiple passes with the new white primer I got to reach some of the harder to reach areas. I do plan on adding some black to the primer at some point to make it more gray and opaque for application.

Zephyr Raventhorn is the Lore Bard in our current campaign. He is the descendant of two very old bloodlines. His mother was an elven princess and his father was the heir to the crown of Neverwinter. Neither knew the other’s royal status until his father was taken back to Neverwinter leaving behind a pregnant elven wife.

Our latest campaign began a few months ago and we all spent some time getting the right miniature for our characters. These are the completed miniatures. We are currently in Icewind Dale, trying to find a way to stop the madness that is going on. As an extra, I added fluorescent paint accents to make us all uniquely visible. From left to right we have: Zephyr Raventhorn, Lullaby the Kenku, Dvalin Thornshield, Mythe the Changeling, and Brenna Wolfheart.

This crazy looking dude was painted for a friend and the dark campaign he was running. He wanted all the glow and color I could put in so I went all out. I started off by painting the majority of the body in a dark metallic color. I also used red, purple and blue for the accents and other parts of the armor.

Miniature Showcase

Zenriel was a really cool npc in our last campaign. She was the opposite of our cleric, Kariss, in almost every way. She was the leader of the cult of Tiamat on Novos and worked hard to make a place where her followers would not be persecuted. As a child, her village had been destroyed by followers of Bahamut though they had not committed crimes. She held a deep anger for those followers and was actually more of a healer than our own cleric.

Throughout our last campaign, which lasted for three and a half years, we had some amazing villains that blindsided us with their potential for destruction and revenge. This is not including some of the gods and higher entities we dealt with like dragons and djinn. They all had unique motivations for their actions and, for many, you could see the hard decision they made that got them to where they ended up. When painting these miniature, I tried to embody their personalities in them as much as possible.

Dvalin Thornshield is the son of an important NPC from our last campaign, Gralmor Thornshield and a yet to be revealed mother. They were both important people in our campaign but the player hasn’t figured it out yet so, she shall not be named!
