DIY Miniatures: The Humble Flumph

Last Thursday, we posted some 4th edition stat blocks for flumphs. Today we’re going to make some flumph minis to go with those stat blocks. A month or so ago, someone on Twitter linked to this WotC forum post. While the Demogorgon is beautiful, I was more intrigued by the flumph miniature posted a little farther down. It looked like a quick and easy project, so I contacted Artsy_Wumpus to write a guest post. I inserted some of my own comments in italics, and took pictures of my own flumph mini as I followed his directions. This is a really good starter project to dip your toe in the miniature making water.
