Cupid of Hate

Doesn't that title express a lovely sentiment?

This is a miniature design I did for the Dreamblade miniatures game. I was asked to create a devilish little version of Cupid and I was given the chance to get a bit "cartoony" with it. Those chances don't come along often enough for me so I jumped at the opportunity, especially because the subject was very reminiscent of an old Harvey Comics character I remember fondly, Hot Stuff, the L'il Devil. My version is more realistic than Hot Stuff but definitely intended as an homage to that character.

The vertical "pole" you see running up from the bottom of the drawing represents a post. In Dreamblade, this hateful little fellow would be able to fly so when produced, the final plastic miniature would be mounted on a clear post.


  1. Wow, very cool. Was this slated for the set after Serrated Dawn?

  2. Thanks, Telengard. I think it was slated for the next set after Serrated Dawn. I did several Dreamblade designs that, unfortunately, were never produced. This one was one of my favorites. I'm glad you liked it.

  3. Nice one Jim - I like the cartoony feel you gave this guy - you're right, an opportunity like this doesn't come along very often.
