Dungeons & Dragons Lizard Folk - WOC 88284

Painting metal is so satisfying!  Some more heavy lead with a Jason Weibe sculpt he did for Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons and Dragons official line.  I believe this goes back to early 2000's immediately following the release of D&D v3. I have a number of different models and they all say 2001 on the metal slotta tag.

I really like this model (something I often say with Jason Weibe sculpts) and this is first of four I have in my collection.  I plan on painting all the others as well - they're prepped and ready to go!  I wanted to give this first one the color scheme and then I'll replicate that on the other three.  I based it to closely resemble the paint scheme used on Lizardfolk 35/80 from the Harbinger set of pre-painted models.

Because of the club, the depth of field is a bit difficult for the macro setting in some of the picks - the top row is the traditional side views that I normally post.  The second row of images are quarter turns in front and rear of the miniature.  I think these two pictures give the best representation of the figure as the depth of field is reduced to the width cast of the mold.

Basically I used a base color and a highlight with a wash of the base color watered down to bring the two together for each section of the model.

Is that WOTC's D&D line or Chainmail? Some nice sculpts came out of those lines.

This is from the D&D line - they did come out with some very good miniatures all around 1999 - 2001.

There was the 25th anniversary edition in 1999 which I have the male fighter (these are very good sculpts and they're hard to find - I also have the Minotaur -

There was the Dungeons & Dragons line which celebrated the release of 3rd edition which is what the Lizard Folk model came from (and I have more coming!)

At the same time in 2000-2001 was the re-release of chainmail and I have painted up the human templar - I have a bunch of the chainmail sitting in a box - unlike the other two lines they are difficult to put together - lots of gaps.
