Beholder

There are a lot of memorable iconic D&D monster, but for me the one embodying D&D more than any other is the Beholder. One of the best Beholder minis around is, without a question, the limited collector’s edition Beholder from Gale Force Nine. Sadly the mini is so rare nowadays that I could not get my hands on one after trying for more than one year. Then I found the “Shadow Beholder” from D&D Miniatures Rage of Demons set. This plastic mini is not as detailed as the GF9 resin one, but the sculpt itself is great.
Sadly the mini was a pain to work with. It was not glued together well and came with large mold lines. Had to cut it apart, glue it together again and resculpt a lot of scales. Also had a lot of problems to get the base coat to stick to the plastic and had a lot of problems with paint peeling off.
In the end it was all worth it. I’m very pleased with the result and the large mini has a great presence on the table.
