To beef up my High Elves ranks, I bought a bunch of WizKidz elves I found at my local game store Dark Sphere. I have to say, I’m not impressed. Soft toy-like plastic, not a lot of sharp details. Overall not the quality I am looking for in miniatures. I’ll probably paint them since I have them, but it won’t really be something I enjoy. Here’s the first one:

Ok… so I saw these Dregs online and I loved them! I don’t know… I think I may have a thing for hag covens and hags and the female Dreg butcher kinda fits as a hag. But I am probably going to use these two as Ghoul guards in a one-shot I’ve created for two of my Danish friends based on, and adapted from, the Prisoners of Molok starter game. I used the speed painting technique I used for my Zombicide game and I am really happy with the result!

Alfein, the Drow Rogue leading the Dark…

So far our game has been out in the wild, but the party is nearing the Elven Twin Omnitropolis: Lyrayara so soon we will be having some more civilised confrontations with the elves. To prepare for the party’s arrival, I’ve been painting these fantastic High Elves from DarkSword. I’ve painted them to roughly match the High Elf Ranger in our party. Although he has been out in the wild for years, I still…

When I started playing Dungeons & Dragons earlier this year, the first scenery things I made were a few simple, traditional dungeon corridors and rooms with square-tiled floors, each 5x 5 feet, for the first adventure.     But I also realised I needed something that would work for the outdoors encounters in the adventure and I wanted to make something that felt more open so I came up with the idea of using hexagon tiles for outside encounters to give the movement a slightly different and more free feel. And to take things to the extreme, I made the whole…
