Be Hold.. er the Beholder... 6 Years, 11 Months ago  
I didn't manage to snag a Beholder from the WotC line, and well Reaper hasn't made one yet in the PPPM, and if i'm going to have to paint the thing anyway i'd rather save the money and make one myself, and i find i tend to paint things i want to quicker, and if i've made it i tend to want to paint it. So here is my beholder.

Nice! I'm jealous of you sculptor types -- I could never make anything that looks that good. That looks like a Ral Partha mini! I'd never know it wasn't "official."

Did you hear that the new DDM set, when 2.0 starts, will have a beholder? New design, too -- closer to 1e, and therefore closer to your sculpt here. Guy Fullerton talks about it in his Gencon blog -- there was a big beholder statue at GC, you may have seen pics, and WOTC has said the first 2.0 DDM set will feature a beholder and it will look like the statue.

Still, that set isn't due for like 8 months, so you have time to enjoy your homemade one before thinking about the "official" one!

I primed it up last night before it went to bed and tonight i hope to put the teeth in (if i can find what i did with them.. ergh annoyance) and then do some painting on it.

I'm in the process of making up a second, to even a sixith (have the raw components to do that many) and each will be a bit different heck they are "Abberations", they can in my mind be mutable and not all the same, so sculpting variables are not an issue in my mind.

As for the next set of Minis, they have had two so far (i'd use the undead one if i had too it still "works" for the species in my mind), but didn't score either, and for power of the mini unless it is a very sucky version of the Beholder they won't make it an Uncommon, which is just about the only way i will get one. By buying an uncommon set, and 3 boosters, i doubt it will be in one of my 3 boosters, and the price will likely be to high unless it is an Uncommon.

Yeah when i was able to log onto the D&D page i saw the new version of the Art for the beholder, it has never been my favorite monster, why i didn't feel the need to get one untill now, but well my PC's are 1) in the Underdark, 2) at the level where these are a challange,, 3) they are on the random encounter chart for the area they will be spending the next month in... so i figured i needed one i think i will make two and post the EASY how to on making these.

I wanted a bit more Old School look to mine (i've been playing since 1980), but the utterly round ball with a mouth looked kind of lame so i added horns/spikes as i thoguht it was a nice themeatic touch, and could even kind of give the impression that they could one day grow into more eyestalks, or if it lost an eye it could replace them or something. Also it made it look a little less bland.

Harneloot & L, the scale on that picture does no justice to how "big" that thing really is, you mention "there was a big beholder statue at GC," but i was thinking Big as compaired to the Mini, so maybe 1/12 scale or something a mock up like you would have on your desk, not LIFE SIZE!



I now have a refrence for my mini, too bad i don't have an "Adventuring picking nose" mini.... to scale mine next too.

THAT would be a funny mini!

(I had no idea it was THAT big either!)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that -- in case you didn't see the other, there's a "life sized" troll statue, as well....

Yeah i saw the troll

for others, (by the same guy)
forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?t=906404

Which got me into an online conversation about how freaking mentally disturbed are "Adventureres" i mean by the size of that thing, i woudln't want to go near it.... and these are just "Large"...
Poping down a Huge mini, is... er going to be something really big... in real life i mean what it's at least 15 feat tall. The Storm giant is 21 ft tall, by 15.... that's what like getting attacked by a dumptruck... standing on end...

I'm not even going to try Garg... Huge is REALLY Huge... why would ANYONE attack something that big...

I like your beholder way more than the fishy one WotC made the life size model out of.
