Showcase: Witcher Archespore

Showcase: Witcher Archespore

Published 2023-09-23

Some crimes are so terrible that they fill people with terror and offend the gods. The criminal's ill will and the cruelty of his deed conceive a curse that brings the archespore to life. The beast attacks innocent creatures hatefully, trying to take vengeance until justice is done.

Miniature Review

The Archespore is what I consider a bit more of a normal plant based monster compared to the Arachas. It's more of a flower at the end of a vine that burrows through the ground and shots venom at its enemies.

Once again there is a lot of detail on the vine so a lot of opportunity to add some different colors for more interest beyond just the flower.

For all miniatures in the set I'm using a mix of GamersGrass tufts and flowers.


I tried to keep a similar color scheme to the Arachas to tie them together, but added a couple of different colors just so they don't look like the same species. The yellow goes well against the green and the darker vine wrapping around gives it some contrast.

The flower maybe looks a bit flat, but I didn't want to make it too bright. Maybe I'll come back to it later on with an extra spot highlight or two.
