D&D ̶M̶o̶n̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ Anti-Hero Manual 79: The Legend of Drizzt – Jarlaxle Baenre, Drow Mercenary & Artemis Entreri, Human Assassin

D&D ̶Monster Manual: The Legend of Drizzt - Jarlaxle Baenre, Drow Mercenary, Artemis Entreri, Human Assassin

Finally I’ve now completed the final pair of the Villain models from The Legend of Drizzt Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Boardgame. Once again, these models are mediocre at best, but at least with gaming-motivation I was able to get hem painted pretty quickly and they’ll look okay on the table (until I can find better replacements!). Jaraxle is another Drow, described as “A Dandy”, hence the pimp hat, though his flashy, purple-heavy outfit works for Drow, Dark Elves and… Stereotypical Pimps, I guess….

Artemis is a Human Assassin, who doesn’t have an especially interesting backstory either – hopefully he’ll be an easy enough miniature to replace with …something. Something from Nolzurs or Reaper, though Nolzurs are a lot more accessable ’round these parts. This justr leaves a few of the Hero models to go, though I (sadly) realised I was still short another(!) pair of them and then almost more sadly found them, so there’s still another five models from this set to complete…

As said, though – they do look completely usable and fine on the tabletop for a boardgame. Here’s a pic of Marouda using a proxy for Wrathgar to cut down Shimmergloom to win us the third scenario. We’re still using proxies for the heroes as I haven’t completed painting any of them at this stage aside from Cattie-Brie

  1. For the quality of the sculpture the dandy drow seems “better” (if this word didn’t sound out of place), and also in this case we would say that the purple is completely appropriate. The sculpture of the amorphous assassin also seems flat to us… The colour combination very nice, but from the photo we can’t understand exactly what colours you used for the dress and cloak. The proxies on the gaming table make a good impression: will the originals live up to them?

    • The Dandy’s head and the details are poor, even by these standards, but he is certainly a lot more dynamically posed than the other. The inner cloak is a Turquiouse-Green (with no label, decanted into a Vallejo dropper) that I picked as it somewhat matched a piece of art while his clothing is simply a dark grey highlighted with blue-greys and some gold stripes using Canoptek Alloy – washed the lot of it with the “new” Nuln Oil.

      With the hero models at least, it’s very likely that I’ll get the originals painted but continue to use proxies and replacements for some (many!) of them from Citadel, Nolzurs, Reaper or whereever else…

      • It stains a bit less while still running into the creases. It’s not bad at all and has it’s uses for sure, but I’m also glad that I stockpiled a bunch of the previous version as well as the gloss version – now I have three variations of Nuln Oil, plus Army Painter’s Dark Tone for four versions of Black Wash that all do the job a little differently…


  2. You’ve certainly given them character, even with the bad sculpts and casts mate, shame you’ve found two more, but better to find them now, rather than when you thought they were all finished

  3. You’re on a roll with these D&D minis, mate. These sculpts look a bit better than the others you recently finished and I think its helped you show off your painting skills even more too. I’m glad to hear you’re getting a chance to enjoy the game as well. With these minis, that’s obviously the key.

    • Thanks mate. I’ve been aiming for an hour-ish per model, though I’ve allowed myself a little longer for some of the better sculpts – really, the point is just to Get ’em Done so they can be used on the table in the game. 🙂

  4. Nice work! I think Artemis turned out nice and non-descript, which is really how most Assassins should be. Don’t want anyone to be able to pick out of a line-up, eh?! Congrats on getting down to your last 5 too. Hopefully no more suddenly appear!
