Another of the few remaining outstanding models from The Legend of Drizzt Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Boardgame to show today. This model is a “Drider”, which is to say a hybrid of “Drow” (aka Dark Elf) and “Spider” (you should already know these things).
Apparently this particular Drider is also a relevant character from the Drizzt “universe”. I googled it and it turns out that Dinin is Drizzt’s Brother. I may or may not have read the relevant book back in the day (I read a few of the first ones) but don’t recall a whole lot about them now, 20+ years later except that they were enjoyable enough pulp fantasy affairs to read while travelling on a trip overseas.
Again, I wanted to give a “naturalistic” look to the unnatural colour, and so have mottled the spider-abdomen on old Dinero here. It’s a little washed out in the photo, but you ger the idea.
In something that should come as no real surprise, I painted Din Djarin here alongside the Giant Spider from Massive Darkness a couple of weeks ago. I’d wanted to hold off posting him until I had some more of those D&D models from the same set completed to post alongside, but as I’ve lost a lot of time over the past three weekends with other matters and the month is drawing towards the end, I decided to just get him posted up today.
The main reason I’ve needed to get him posted today was of course for the Monster March painting challenge, over at Path of an Outcast I’ve got one more week to see how much more I can get painted and posted…
