Also called Illithids, Mind Flayers are one of the oldest most iconic monsters in Dungeons & Dragons history. Created by Gary Gygax in 1975, Mind Flayers have appeared in every edition of D&D since.

Dwelling in undergroud cities and caves, Mind Flayers are extremely perilous to face. They will often use the Mind Blast attack to stun their victims, then either suck out their brain outright or turn them into a slave, called a Thrall.

Very cool. I never got them wearing robes considering how dangerous they are in the DnD universe, I always thought that those should be like the elders or something but this is what they should look like in the manual.

You're welcome. I guess they intended MMV to be the "Mindflayer Volume" or something, 'cuz they even stuck a Mindflayer head on the cover. Anyway, the coolest thing about the Mindflayer Thoon, in my opinion, are the Mindflayer Hulks, which are basically patchwork Frankenstein Monster Mindflayers. I was actually thinking of making one of those for my entry, but didn't. Here's what they look like:

You are awesome! I've been meaning to read up on the stuff with Thoon, but couldn't find what book it was in. Thanks man!

I kind of like them in robes myself, but they look cool in armor too. You should check out D&D 3.5 edition Monster Manual V if you ever get the chance, there's a large section (22 pages) on the "Mindflayers of Thoon" and their twisted creations--basically some Mindflayers traveled a wee bit too far into the Far Realm in their explorations and came back changed, worshipping some unknown god-figure/philosophy named Thoon.

Thanks man! I used the 3.5 Monster Manual art for the head sculpt and tried to give him a more 'warrior' look. I wasn't really digging the black dress they usually put the Flayer in,

Awesome job on your Mindflayer--methinks my Myconid is about to have its' spongy Shittake brains sucked out in defeat . . . Did you base it on the 4th Edition Monster Manual I artwork? Great execution!
