Minions by MeMyMine Minions by MeMyMine
"Pillage!"

I wanted it to be a speedpainting dammit!

Those are members of the 4 minion tribes in the Overlord games (developed by Triumph Studios and published by Codemasters):
Brown (tanks),
Red(ranged fireball attackers),
Green (stealthy backstabbing assassins) and
Blue (healers, though they are more of resurrecters-but only if the victim's soul hasn't departed yet; the only minions that can swim; in the 2 game they also become incorporeal while they move. A notable blue minion is one named Mortis-he is dressed like the grim Reaper and is found next to a river in the Netherworld from which he can pull out the souls of long dead minions and bring them back to life).

Just finished playing the Overlord games again. I just love them. The Minions are just too awesome. I do wish there were more Minions though, namely more types, like orange insectoid electric Minions or black bat-like or vulture-like Minions. And there was a giant open world for me to conquer one land at a time while also needing to defend myself from wannabes. Just give me a whole planet to take over and I'll be the happiest Overlord you'll ever see.

Well, developers have a budget and time constraint for projects, so most if not all games feature only the things which are essential. On my first Overlord and Overlord 2 playthroughs the accessible areas seemed much larger than upon closer inspection later, crafter in a way to provide the illusion of a lively world within the technical and economic limitations the developers had. 4 types of minions seem just about enough when you have a headcount limit of 50. Otherwise I too would enjoy having a much larger game world and higher number of commandable minions and more character and unit upgrades and customization and more alternative ways to progress the story and conquer areas and all the other things players love to have.

i imagine overlord 3 as the third overlord to come back from the abyss and you can choose to play as the third overlord who's got the infernal spirits(the wraiths)and some minions defected to his cause(Gnarl,Giblet),the tower heart,his god power, and the ancient spell stones bound now to its spirit,the dark tower rebuilt and the ooze drained,but as a side effect the entire wasteland area is turned as a lava plane similar to mordor
or the fourth overlord that has the netherworld and tremendous magic power asorbed from florian greenheart,and of course the rest of the minions
and a prove of strength is given to test the stronger will win who will achieve true evil.
but a observing eye,an old eye is watching the battle of this 2 overlords and tries to put them against each other in every way to take the throne for himself...

I think the Minions would win. And my whole reason is because of the Brown in this picture. Just look how happy and excited he is with his axe! He can't wait to use it!!

That is amazing. Just amazing. I like the look you gave the greens a very raptor and prehistoric look. The Red looks like something you would run into in freaking Hell. The blue looks like a creeper to me but then that might be my hatred of them showing. But the brown looks like he's gonna have a good time with his axe. So this is simply amzing.

Glad you like the brown minion :) But if you buy them all guns, what happens when the enemy enters close combat and no minion has melee weapons?

guns are basically metal bars so... well it's no different from a crowbar.plus you can attatch blades to the guns as well.

This made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I've played all the Overlord games, except Raising Hell. Personal favorites are the browns, as I like mindless brutal force over stealth and ranged.

This series as a whole makes me feel warm and fuzzy :) Wow, sorry for such a late reply...

Browns, especially in the first game, are the most useful, brutal force aside. I only took 5 of each other colour when I had a 50 minion limit. In the second game they made better use of the others. But browns have most character, because they can have custom hats.

They're not only cute, but also very useful :P In the game you can collect as many of them as you like but you can have only up to 50 following you. In the second part, when every one of them has his own name and title he has earned in battle and trophies he has looted, those you always take with you are kind of special to you and when one of them dies you might want to sacrifice up to 20 of your lesser minions to bring his soul back.
In the first game they still got to wear their trophies but they were dead for good. By the second half of the game I started telling them to wait for me while I go scout up ahead and kill enemies just so that nobody gets hurt. Which is funny considering you're supposed to use the little guys to fight for you among everything else, I didn't want them getting into trouble so I risked my life for them instead vice versa :D

I rented the first Overlord a long time ago, and I realy liked it. I'm thinking of renting the sequal.
no spoilers or anything, but is there something I should know about the first game if I where to understand what's going on in the second?

:iconmemymine:
MeMyMine Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2009
Something from the first game? Probably knowing who Rose is and basic things about the Dark Tower (that it's where you live in the first game)And Gnarl and Giblet have the same roles (Giblet's still the smith)as they did in the first game. There are major references to these things but they're explained to you (cause your character doesn't know them)as the story goes on so those who don't know the plot of the first one still can get everything.
