Homemade Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures

When I was digging up the control figure for my Reaper Bones experiment I came across a set of fantasy monsters I sculpted myself for the dungeon crawling game my group played about 10 years ago. This was before the advent of WotC's prepainted figures so finding a miniature for the more exotic monsters meant doing it myself.  Of course, my players always told me to "just use bottlecaps", but whata they know...

Earth Elemental


Water Elemental



Gibbering Mouthers


Brain Golem




Beholder, Old School Style

  1. Hats off to you Sir, these are awesome! Seriously, that is some show of dedication to a D&D game. When I last ran a campaign I always tried to use the right monster models but I had the advantage of the D&D Mini's range. I hope your players learned to appreciate the effort you had gone to.

  2. Thanks Lee!

    "Hey man, you can just use bottle caps y'know" - my players.

    The whole reason I am attracted to miniatures and wargames is the visual aspect, so I'm content to paint, sculpt and build figures and terrain for my own enjoyment.

  3. Nicely done - I've never had the courage to attempt to make my own figures. I've made some scratch built ships (iron clads and a generic 1/1200 scale sailing frigate) but never something that was animate.

    Very cool!

    1. Glad you like the minis! I sculpted these 15 years ago, but I think they were mostly Milliput two part epoxy. "Green stuff" may be a better choice though. good luck with your sculpts!
