Showcase: Dark Souls' Winged Knight & Sentinels


Another fan favourite! Who doesn't love the Winged Knight. And look at how straight his halbeard is too. Lovely. I added the golden yellow freehand on his tabard, so he looks proper.

In the second picture you can see his Sentinel pals. 

Hope you like the big lads!

Showcase: Dark Souls' Titanite Demon & Friends


Heyhey, time for more Dark Soulsian baddies. Here's the Titanite Demon and several enemies straight from the High Walls of Lothric. I reinstalled Dark Souls 3 just to research the look of these enemies. Because I take my job seriously, damnit!

The funny thing about Dark Souls (the video games) is that they very, very much rely on lighting for the look of the enemies. Which is something that doesn't translate all that well onto miniature. Even in large screenshots or videos it can be hard to figure out what colour something is supposed to be. And still, I had to apply some creative freedom to add at least some colour in those faded blues and greens, mainly to help tell the enemies apart on the board. I also did my best to put the ragged, torn, and very 'spotty' look onto the figures.

One of the many screenshots taken by yours truly.

Anyway, I like them. Hope you do too!

Showcase: Dark Souls' Heroes

Today we'll look at the lovely character figures from the Dark Souls board game: Assassin, Knight, Herald and Warrior.

I did my best to retain the colours of the original pieces of starting equipment in the video games. That meant I had to add the design on the Herald's (halbeard, tan cloak) shield free-hand. The design on the Knight's shield (on his back) came cast onto the figure.

Hope you like them!

Showcase: Dark Souls' Ornstein & Smough


Here's the first post in a series on the Dark Souls boardgame. I'm starting with an iconic odd couple, Dragon Slayer Ornstein and Executioner Smough.
