Games-Workshop's Blue Skink Musician



This figure is the musician for my blue skinks. The scan just does not do this one justice as the orange came out too dark. The drum strap was painted using a very fine point. Another note of interest is the shading of the skin on the drum to look like it has been well used. Completed in February of 2001.

WOTC's Male Fighter



2015-01-25 - model number update - this was WOC 40004.  I haven't been able to figure out the sculptor of this model.  Lost Minis Wiki has Mize, Wiebe, and Elliot as the sculptors on other models in the same range.

Dungeons and Dragons is the revamped AD&D system. To celebrate the 25th anniversary, WOTC came out with their own miniatures. This one is the male fighter. I painted this fighter in February of 2001.

The sword is bright, but I just had to do something with it in order to represent a magical sword. I also put a shield on this fighter as he just looked naked without one.

My first attempt at modeling! Nothing dramatic, but I put the two straps on between the glove and the shield. Took me an entire hour - I have new respect for all those craftsman that are making these miniatures.
