D&D Monster Manual 51: Dungeon of the Mad Mage – Zombie Beholder

Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon of the Mad Mage – Zombie Beholder, Nolzurs, Wizkids

So now, on New Year’s Eve, 2020 I find myself posting up the first models I completed in November. Nothing too exciting to discuss here – another pair of models from the various D&D adventure board games. I went with milky, pupiless irises with a bit of a fade effect on the main/central eyeballs to suggest damage, and/or blindness. Because zombies. Then similar, “white” eyes, with a bit more of a bloody stain on the smaller eyeballs.

The differences between the paint on these two isn’t vast, but there is a little more to it in-hand than seems to have come up in the photos. One is a little more greenish, while the other is a bit more brownish, though both have use of the other’s primary colour as well as purple in the shading and of course, some bloody reds.

Here they are alongside their fellow ex-beholder mate from the same boxed set, the Death Tyrant. As with the Death Tyrant, the same sculpt is available as part of the Wizkids “Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures” line, albeit with removable/swappable eyestalks. Tarmor actually painted one of those not too long ago.

That’s it for me here in 2020. I’ll see you tomorrow (probably) in 2021. Happy New Year and all that – especially to those of you bunkered down and hunkered down across the world right now. Hopefully 2021 is better than the shitty year that 2020 has been!
