Getting back into Dungeons & Dragons this year has truly revived my painting hobby and looking back at 2018, I have painted more minis this year than the previous decade! Without any further ado, here are all of them in a single post! Enjoy! also check out my other two mega posts: Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 terrain boards and scatter! and Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – The games we played in 2018! http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-young-white-dragon-silver-dragon-wizkids-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-ogre-santa-bear-eater-scibor-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-fairy-huntress-darksword-miniatures-fairies-unknown/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-gazebo-mimic-knights-of-the-dinner-table/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-snow-goons-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-gnome-more-mr-nice-guy-northumbrian-tin-soldier/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-easter-bunny-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-mousling-wizard-bard-monk-and-fighter-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-goblin-pirate-captain-ulgat-freebooter-miniatures-and-goblin-buccaneer-rackham/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-goblin-pirate-captain-krill-rackham/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-cryx-captain-rengrave-privateer-press/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-princess-elena-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-nakaat-female-half-dragon-paladin-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-dragonkin-rogue-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-elven-warlock-darksword-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-kjell-bloodbear-barbarian-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-pirate-long-john-freebooter-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-discworld-luggage-micro-art-studio/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-trygve-forest-troll-shaman-north-star-military-figures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-hill-troll-reaper-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-troll-mercenary-boson-grogspar-privateer-press/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-fenrisian-wolves-games-workshop/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-wolves-otherworld-miniatures/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-undead-the-pope-and-mummy-n1-greebo-games/ http://scrollmaster.net/dungeons-and-dragons-pose-skeleton-not-human-01-devil-re-ment/…

Following on from my Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 painted miniatures! and Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – The games we played in 2018! I wanted to capture all the terrain and scenery I either bought and painted or built and painted. My experience with building scenery has mainly been limited to tabletop wargames so by and large we are talking flat boards, some ruins and something elevated to put long-ranged weaponry on. So I have to say, while I do love painting miniatures (been doing it for 30+ years by now on and off), what I’ve enjoyed the most has…

And finally, following on from Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 terrain boards and scatter! and Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 painted miniatures! I want to create a list of the games we played this year, roughly 1 per month, which was an amazing feat given the hardest part of being a Dungeon Master is aligning everybody’s busy schedules. Rounded numbers are main games where the whole team was present. Games with x.x are spin-off chapters that, while not directly in the campaign trail, still took place with same characters in the same world. I also played…

In our 2018 campaign, we’ve been running around in a lot of Dungeons, but not encountered any Dragons (well… apart from our Rogue running into a Dragon Whelp). The closest has been an encounter with a Wyvern that brought down an airship, marooning the party on an island. However, I am hoping to change that in 2019 and this cool Silver Dragon from Wizkids worked perfectly as a young White Dragon, which goes well with my Ice and Snow Terrain Board… and it also aligns with an encounter I think may fit where the party is going. One of the…

When I was planning my D&D Christmas oneshot for 2018, I was roaming the internet to find Christmas themed miniatures and found this crazy Ogre Santa from Scibor Miniatures. It arrived two days before the game, but with Dragonmeet 2018 in between, I had little time to paint it, so I ended up speed painting him as fast as I could. Sure I could have chosen a wider range of colours, made more details etc, but overall I’m happy with the result.

The last campaign session we played, neatly wrapped up 2018 as a season, so for the last D&D game of the year, I made this Christmas Oneshot called “Gnome More Mr Nice Guy1” inspired by these these absolutely fantastic Gnomes from Northumbrian Tin Soldier. Below is how the game went, but if you are a Dungeon Master yourself and want to run this, you can find the actual Oneshot here. Since this was a oneshot, it gave my players a chance to try something new.. a new class that is, because the race was Mousling. The Ranger chose to be the Fighter…

Sometimes I throw away the packaging of miniatures a bit too fast… leaving me later to wonder who the hell the manufacturer is! That is the case of the two larger fairies below. I bought them at Salute 2018 so if you recognise them, please do let me know who made them. I have a few more, they game in two cardboard boxes. Thew smaller fairy is a Fairy Huntress from ever-awesome Darksword Miniatures.

My players don’t like mimics. I do! And honestly, how can you not love this crazy-ass Gazebo Mimic. Amazing! One thing that bugged me about this miniature was there was no thought given to how the panel with the Mimic face could be removed and reattached. It feels like the sculpture assumes that the owner of the miniature would always have it as one or the other.

So… the story for my Christmas 2018 D&D oneshot has been building up in my mind since I bought these absolutely fantastic Gnomes from Northumbrian Tin Soldier at Salute in April! To give a bit of background, in Denmark, where I grew up, Santa lives on Greenland, not the North Pole. And he doesn’t have little pesky elves running around helping him. No, he has “Julernisser”, which can loosely be translated to Christmas Gnomes. These Gnome minis are just perfect to the point where I’ve even named the oneshot “Gnome More Mr Nice Guy” after them!

I’ve been buying quite a few Mousling miniatures as I think they are super fun. But I haven’t had a reason to put them into our current D&D campaign War of the Triplets , which meant I haven’t had a real reason to paint them. However, for my Christmas 2018 oneshot, I wanted to give my players a completely different set of characters, giving them a chance to play something else. And it’s been interesting to see who chose what: Our Ranger chose Fighter Our Sorcerer chose Monk Our Rouge chose Warlock Our Barbarian chose Bard I even think this class…
