Today, I have for you a miniature based on one of my illustrations. I updated and painted the Molydeus for Mordenkainen Presents Monsters of the Multiverse. I wasn't expecting this one to be the first miniature from the book to be released, but here it is all the same. I will never complain about an official mini based on one of my D&D paintings. To start things off, here is my painting of the Molydeus.
First and foremost, the Molydeus miniature is fantastic! I love how it turned out, and I love that it is enormous. I thought the monster was a little smaller from what I remember of the assignment, but I guess it is huge now. Not sure why the snake is coming out of the shoulder armor, I didn't think I made it look like that. The snake should be coming out of the demon's back, but it is now in the sholder. I think it is cool either way. For me, it is an overall pleasing mini. It is big, looks cool, has lots of detail, has a complex paint scheme, and feels good when you hold it. I think that checks off every box, and I could not be happier. Here are some images of the miniature so that you can compare them to my illustration.
