Familiar Horde

This is the "familiar" horde because the bulk of them are very tiny creatures that can be used as familiars for magic-users (like a witch's black cat or Harry Potter's owl). It is also "familiar" (to me) because half of the familiars that came in the Bones set used the same casts as a set of metal familiars that i already owned. So the creatures below are duplicates of miniatures that i already have, although of course i've colored them differently. The original metal ones have much more distinct features; the plastic Bones are more blobby and harder to paint.

The rest of the familiars, more supernatural types (not that the faerie dragon above isn't supernatural), are all new to me. Here we have the world's tiniest Grim Reaper, some kind of Fraggle, and and a wood nymph.

And then a water sprite, a baby treant, and a couatl.

Besides the familiars, i figured these beetle swarms would be quick to paint.

And now the more important pieces that i actually took some time with. A golem or steampunk robot blacksmith (who is not from the Bones set) and a knight.

And some lizard men that are actually official D&D miniatures that i've finally gotten around to painting. They are both metal and were a joy to paint after all the plastic Bones. Technically, according to their cards, one is a "lizard folk" and the other is a troglodyte.

And lastly, the big guy, who has some nice armor and a big sword.

Horde Again

The gorilla, the insect thing and the rat man are not Bones.

My D&D players have thought to create shields made of dragon scales and backpacks made of landshark hides. One even turned a giant gorilla tooth into a helmet. But apparently you don't have to get so exotic:

Texas man shoots armadillo, gets hit in face by bullet ricochet.

Of course this isn't news to comics fans.
