D&D Monster Manual 28: Wrath of Ashardalon – Human Cultists

D&D Wrath of Ashardalon - Human Cultists

The other day we had my least-favourite models from the Ashardalon boxed game. Today we have what are now probably my favourite models – to my own surprise upon completion. The human cultists. These took the longest out of all of my Ashardalon models to paint, due to the robes. I originally envisioned them with deep red robes, which would have been relatively quick and easy, but instead thought about it and decided to paint them with a similar palette to my Cawdor/RedemptionistsImperial/Chaos Cult and Flagellant models.

I’m happy with how well the robes came out in the end, but it was a real struggle to get them done, as doing all those flames caused a mental block and even when I made myself get them done, needed a lot of breaks to keep my head on, and keep them neat. Rejoice, however – these are the final (monster) models from the Wrath of Ashardalon set, so I’ll be able to get a group shot of all the monsters up hopefully in a few days. It’s not the end for my D&D models, though – I’ve started working on the models from The Legend of Drizzt board game, as well as the Temple of Elemental Evil…

Oh, and here’s a pic that should serve as an illustration of both the why and the how it looks in practice for the different basing style I’ve been using for these D&D board game models. It also shows the size of the Rage Drake for “large monster painting challenge” purposes.. 😉
