D&D Dungeons and Dragons Temple of Elemental Evil Heroes - Talon, Human Ranger & Nymmestra, Sun Elf Wizard

Another pair of D&D hero models today – these two both come from the Temple of Elemental Evil adventure board game. As with my Escher from April, these two were started originally for Alex’ Fembruary painting challenge – but not completed until April, and so qualifying for Ann’s  “Paint the Crap You Already Own!” challenge instead.

As usual, these PVC boardgame models aren’t anything amazing, but they’re ok for board gaming, and I guess fit the bill for the specific D&D character types that they represent.

  1. The Sun Elf Wizard’s colours are great, but I especially love the “classic” colours on the Ranger. They’re both cool looking figures!

  2. Don’t undersell these, mate. You did a great job with both! I would say these look a bit glossier than your minis usually do but beyond that, these will look great in your D & D games and beyond 🙂

    • Yeah, the higher contrast on the ranger and ger cloak really combined with that particular shot of spray satin. I may overpaint it just to tone down the sheen on the ranger’s outfit.

      • That always drives me crazy. I find that AK’s ultra matt varnish can help with really shiny stuff too so you might give that a go, if you can get it for a fair price. It tends to run a bit expensive in the US so unfortunately, I’m sure its worse on your fair island.

      • Yeah, I’ve got all three of AK’s varnishes – I think even AK’s satin one would work well enough since I like a soft look to most of my blends – I find ultra matte can unfortunately bring out every.single.paint.stroke. so it’s more a tool for purpose than a regular go-to. I also think the lighting on the models here didn’t help either, with three (filtered) lights all aiming at the rather deep creases. I might give it a shot of AK Satin, or Satin+Matte at some stage.

  3. As I have this game I know just how low in detail these figures are, so you’ve done a great job to make them look this good, especially Talon. Varnish wise, I’ve found Vallejo’s Mecha Matt does a great job.

    • Thanks, I tend to find that implied detail works better than trying to paint every detail on these older D&D sculpts. Especially the ones that don’t exist! 😉
      You know, I think I have that particular varnish as well since I got the Mecha case as a gift several months ago. I might give it a test shot on a corner of the cape. 🙂
