Miniature Review: Nolzur's Displacer Beast
I really like their implementation in 5e. I picked up 3 blisters of this mini, but only painted the one as a test. The remaining two are on my desk right now to be wrapped up!
Item name: Displacer Beast
Line: Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures
Review: I am a HUGE fan of the Nolzur's line (also the Pathfinder Deep Cuts). They're great sculpts, are pre-primed, and they're just gorgeous. Because I wanted this model to be that deep purple color, I spray coated black. I then block-painteda dark purple color, did some crimson on the business end of the tentacles, and hit the claws and teeth with a bone color. As always, I am looking for shortest possible time spent on my game table, and I knocked this guy out with fairly minimal effort for quite a good effect. I highly recommend absolutely everything available in the Nolzur's and Deep cuts line.
As a side note, I really like this visual iteration of the Displacer Beast. It looks sleek and muscular, not sickly like the 3rd edition version!
