Here is a photo of almost all of the game miniatures I’ve ever made myself from scratch:
(Caveat, three of these miniatures have wings I cut off from a Halloween bat, but all the rest is my own work)
Here are three of the first minis I ever made. I was just starting a campaign and needed some goblins and kobolds. I made them way too big, and I didn’t even pretend to go for artistic merit. I just made some stuff I thought would be more recognizable than pennies or pawns of some sort:

I did manage to get better, but even today I am using these minis for PCs in actual games:

So, you see, I suck. But I have a lot of fun, and a lot of minis. Almost all of these are made of Sculpey clay, but some are made from various epoxy putties.
