Heartbreaker

Painted: Succubus

As Joeksy the dungeon brawler taught us, never trust a hot chick in a dungeon! No time is this more true than when you encounter one of this ilk. Be wary; her charms are deadly.

Not that this advice is going to do you much good, though. With the succubus's array of psionics and spells it's unlikely you'll know what you're up against until you're in her arms and with but a kiss your soul is drained away level by level in as few minutes.





Manufacturer: Grenadier
Line: Julie Guthrie's Personalities
Figure: 881 Succubus
Release date: 198?
Sculptor: Julie Guthrie
Painter: Spooktalker
Date painted: 2010

I painted this one as a gift for my GF but I'm sure she won't mind if I borrow it for a game or three. Meanwhile I have another casting of this sculpt and one of the other Guthrie succubus for when I can get to them. Like most of the Guthrie grenadier personalities these are available now from Mega Miniatures.

As always, the collection can be viewed in its entirety at flickr. And don't forget when roleplaying your succubi to, in the words of Gygax, avoid melee and "use guile, treachery and etherealness whenever possible."

  2. Wing-colors are great totally unique. I love Goth chicks, this hits the spot, love the facial expression too.

  3. Tits out! Hopefully the women of the Borderlands won't take it the wrong way when Choderick give them the "Detect Evil" squinty eye. Swamp urchin... detect evil? Comely bar-maid... detect evil? Damsel in distress... definitely detect evil!?!?

  4. Nicely done. The deep red of the wings vs the pale flesh really makes the fig pop.

    On the Guthrie Fantasy Personalities release dates, the following is from Wikipedia, for as much as one wants to put stock in what Wikipedia has to say.

    "Grenadier signed on Julie Guthrie in 1987 to sculpt their first signature line Julie Guthrie's Fantasy Personalities."

  5. Wow she looks great. That face is really well done as a sculpt and a paint job. She looks very alluring and yet very dangerous. Poor adventurers.

  6. Probably one of the more pleasant ways to die a horrible dungeon death, if such a thing can truly be said...

    Nice job, inspiring as always!
