Giant Otter Miniatures

Last year, I was running Dungeons & Dragons Encounters in a local gaming store. Encounters is a series of adventures provided by the publisher with the intention of attracting new players/consumers to their product.  There was one point during this particular story, Beyond the Crystal Cave, in which the players had the opportunity to use giant otters as mounts.  I made the clay miniatures but they didn't get done in time for the game.  Over a year later, I finally got around to painting them.  Some are more otter-like than others.  One looked more like a tiger cub so I painted it as such.








The otters are designed to allow a D&D mini to be placed on top.  This is illustrated with my Kenku assassin.  It would probably work better with the standard plastic figures.
