D&D Heroes: The Legend of Drizzt - Drizzt Do'Urden, Drow Ranger & Guenhwyvar the Panther Miniature

The last, final model from The Legend of Drizzt Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Boardgame is complete! The title character, Drizzt himself. I also revisited his animal compantion/familiar, Guenhwyvar the Panther as well. Despite having previously finished Guenhwyvar in the past, I went back and rebased the model as well as added some new layers of highlighting to the black fur – this way Guenhwyvar’s model fits in properly alongside Drizzt and the other Companions of the Hall’s models.

How to paint Drizzt, though? In a lot of art depictions of the character, his (presumably leather) armour is brown, but it looked – in a word – poopy to me. So other options, then. In the artwork for the game box, it looks pretty dark and not especially brown.

I looked around and found an action figure by Hasbro of Drizzt where he’s depicted wearing a kind of dark sea green/turquoise armour. With that, we had a winnar! While Drizzt’s skin is listed as jet black in some descriptions and dark blue in others, I’m not super happy with how the dark blue skin on Yvonnel Baenre came out in my recent model, especially compared to the desaturated lighter blues of my other Drow, so Drizzt got the lighter skin tone instead. It happened to be pretty close to the Hasbro figure as well, so maybe Drizzt’s skin has been retconned in the official media as well? Dunno. Also, don’t really care as I’m not invested hugely in these characters beyond this series of board games…

I kept the green cloak because ranger, though went with a deep red-brown inside of the cloak, both for visual interest as well as a rationale that it could be reversable depending on the seasonal environment.

A miniatures board game fully painted before we even completed playing the thing! We even got to play through a couple of scenarios earlier today. As you can see, we’re still using a proxy for Cattie-Brie because the actual model is so awful, and Artemis could probably do with a decent replacement as well…
