Was going to post a bunch of orcs, but the photos were too poor so they will have to wait. Instead, here’s an old D&D Miniatures Girallon (from the Night Below set) that I did a full repaint of recently. I had to do a little greenstuffing on him, filling a few gaps and sculpt over them with fur texture. Turned out good, but the piece on the head looks a bit like a head piece.

As usual with repaints of D&D minis, the original miniature wasn’t much to write home about. Ever since I got the model, I have been looking forward to painting it though. Here’s a before photo, nabbed from the Internet.

I didn’t bother with priming or anything, instead I base coated the whole model in a leather brown and then just went to town drybrushing and washing everything up with flesh tones progressing to pure white.

It’s a fun, dynamic model with an expressive face. Rather versatile too – it could just as well smash things to a pulp in a fantasy setting as in the grim darkness of the future. Now, I think I need to dig up the other Girallon model done by WOTC.
