I always wanted to play Zombicide, but painting the 50+ zombies was a daunting task, espercially after spending weeks painting Super Dungeon Explore – Forgotten King boxset. However, by chance I found a great youtube video on how to speed paint zombies and it actually introduced me to a whole new way of painting using glazes and washes which is faster than the technique I nomally use… unfortunately I can’t seem to find the video! It took me maybe a total of 40-50 hours to paint the whole lot… maybe even less. Step 1: Prime everything with bone (I use Army…
I bought these guys back when Confrontation was still live game. I actually painted Kolgor 6 years ago, but never got around to paint the two trackers. Now that I’m DMing Dungeons & Dragons, I’ve been able to breathe new life and purpose into these mighty fine orc minis from Rackham in our current campaign.
I got this cute / scary little goblin from my partner and really wanted to add it to our Dungeons & Dragons campaign. However, next to both the characters and other monster, he didn’t look that scary, so I was wondering how to make him a real threat. In the end I decided to have him chase a boy on the other side of a chasm the party was in the process of crossing via a narrow bridge. This worked like a charm. The scared boy really bought gravity to the situation and the players stepped up to the challenge to get…
my partner got me this tough-looking Orc from Reaper. I wanted him to look like a very unsympathetic Slave Task Master, so I made sure he had no decorations or ornaments. Just muscle and rusty armour plates. In our Dungeons & Dragons campaign, he is known as Mr Nice! Orc
I got these Goblin Archers from my partner, but to be honest, they look more like Orcs to me. However, their size is Goblin size so I sam using them as such in our Dungeons & Dragons campaign along side these Goblin Archers from Knightmare Miniatures.
I really like the Goblins from Knightmare Games. From the Boss and the Elite and the Shaman to these lowly Goblin Archers, they all have amazing character and fits right into how I see Goblins as a people, not just monsters. I’ve made use of them in our current Dungeons & Dragons campaign along side these Goblin Archers from Reaper to create a real threat in numbers.
While looking for evil dwarves, I found this tank of an orc at Mom Miniaturas, the same place as I found these amazing Dwarf Stone Golems. I couldn’t resist buying him as he is perfect for a huge, brutal but intelligent Orc warlord. I will fit him in as a main character later in my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. I used same painting technique as I used on my Minotaur and although I think the Minotaur turned out better, I am still happy with this Orc.
I don;’t know… maybe hags are slowly turning into my favourite Dungeons & Dragons monsters. I find them full of character and possibilities and love the minis. They also fit the evolving Feywild storyline in my current Dungeons & Dragons campaign. Just look at this Reaper Witch Coven and the lonely hag from Heresy Miniatures.
I won’t lie: I’ve been wanting to paint these crazy little dudes since I saw them the first time. But since I no longer play Warmachine, I didn’t have a reason to buy them. However, having picked up Dungeons & Dragons, they seemed like a perfect type of crazy fit into the Feywild which is becoming more and more prominent in our currrent campaign.
Not much to say. I needed Crocodiles for a Dungeons & Dragons aventure in our current campaign and found these fantastic crocs. I use the smaller crocodiles as a forewarning to the players while they hear loud growls from the bigger ones coming up the drain.
Given I made a Dungeons & Dragons adventure that was crocodile themed for our current campaign, I decided that Lizardmen in my world, Heden Rei, would be Gatormen instead. Some minor tweaks to stats but otherwise identical. These Gatormen minis was speed painted as I needed them done fast in time for the adventure.
While randomly browsing to find miniatures suitable for the Feywild, I found this elegant “undead” named Bianca at Greebo Games who I think is perfect as a Dryad Queen in my Dungeons & dragons campaign as there seems to be a Feywild current evolving. I painted her rather quickly: Brown, inked with Earthshade, drybrushed and added some gold highlights to give her some sparkle.
