New stuff for Minis - new set out - Savage encounters - in hand pics - a game day - and some repaints.....

Sorry for the lazy post combining everything new into one post.

Had a good gameday Sat Nov 7th, several people showed up for some good minis - we used the Heroscape map pieces for the map instead of the normal ddm maps that I have - everyone agreed that this was better, and very easy to customize based on the number of players - because of people coming and going, and a couple people out sick - we had games of 3 players - so we made a map with 3 starting areas - pretty cool.

Also my 3 year old and I have started painting minis again - we even repainted a couple of the new beholders from the last set.

I did one that could be used as a ghost/spectral/undead beholder. And it glows in the dark! Started with repainted in white, then a layer of grey, then a ghostly green layer, then a layer of gloss with sparkles in is, the eye done in mettalic light green, and a layer of glow in the dark paint. All the repainted were then sprayed with glossy coat.

Also did a couple of practice magma brutes to toxic brutes(one wet brush then wipe, and one dry brush)

Here's my daughters beholder that fell asleep with his eye closed and got hit by a halfling mage with 'color spray'.

Also we did some earth titans we did on a different day....I keep trying to explain about gloppy paint.....:

And what you've all been waiting for - the pics of the new set:

All the visibles looked great...

ones who looked better then expected:
Purple dragon, Bodak Skulk, Bullywug Guard, Rockfire Dreadnought, Savage Minotaur, Shardstorm Vortex, Windfiend Furg, Zombie Hulk

Overall, an ok set, not as good as the last one though. Some of the minis could have used better paint jobs, and eyes were an issue on several. Also a few stinker rares. Maybe time to increase the price again to raise quality....

Here is the link to the photo bucket with all the pics from all the above posts dumped in a pile - multiple pics of most of the new minis from the new set, below:

Also mixed in with the repaints were a few pics of the minis I liked best from the new Monsterpocalypse set - golden monkey and glowing ball(they both got played with at gameday)

Thanks for these pictures. I'm trying to get a nice monster collection to play Giant Monster Rampage and like some of the DD minis. The trick is finding the ones that are compatible w/ the 3" Japanese ones I already have of classical giant monsters and also w/ the Monsterpocalypse stuff I own. Can you tell me if the Earth Titan and the Nightwalker are the right size? Thanks

Earth Titan is bigger then Monsterpocalypse stuff, but seems fine to me - nightwalker is a lot smaller then the old one - pretty close in size to Monsterpocalypse... dont know about 3" japanese toys though
