D&D Tortle Cleric by lightsout1985

The first piece we're going to look at is this awesome D&D character created by lightsout1985. Here we have an animal-based Dungeons & Dragons character, the Tortle Cleric.

D&D Tortle Cleric #1 by lightsout1985

The model stood out for me because of the wonderful way that the skin has been painted on the model as well as the awesome shell scheme too. That is all without looking towards the awesome seaside base that has been crafted for the model.

It's nice to see that someone has gone outside of the box when it comes to designing a character for use in their role-playing games. We have seen a lot of Elves, Dwarves, Humans and the like but it's often a good idea to expand and homebrew your own characters too.

The miniature is from the Dark Sword range and it is very much worth delving into the rest of the collection to see if something catches your eye.

Corpse Piles by moji

From something quite fantastic we have the rather grim Corpse Piles by moji here.

Corpse Piles #1 by moji

The Project has been focusing on showing just how these piles of corpses have come together, introducing the skeletal remains as well as more grisly looking parts like dismembered legs and arms. There's even a bit of blood slopped onto the ground there too.

Corpse Piles #2 by moji

This is very much an interesting prospect for your bitz box. They are being used as markers for the Shadows Of Brimstone game but you could use a similar technique if you were looking to expand on your range of bases for a particular chaotic force in your Fantasy games.

Blood & Plunder Sloop by danny

Last but not least is an awesome Sloop which has been fully painted and rigged by danny here.

Blood & Plunder Sloop #1 by Danny

The finished miniature is superb with intricate rigging, wonderful sails which feel like they've just been freshly attached, and the flag fluttering in the breeze behind the mainsail. You can see some of the early stages of painting behind the rest of the ship down below too.

Blood & Plunder Sloop #2 by Danny

The rigging has come across very well and I think it ties the entire ship together well. The big bright colours on the sloop very much set it off but I think this photo above shows off how a wash will indeed tie the whole thing together.

Blood & Plunder Sloop #3 by Danny

We love the aesthetic and world of Blood & Plunder because it truly is one of the best games for living out that much more realistic piratical/privateer fantasy on the tabletop.

This is a very cool project and I hope to see more of his painting as he works through some of the other models for his Blood & Plunder collection.
