I’ve been wanting for a while to add in an unknown or strange type adversary into our Dungeons and Dragons campaign War of the Triplets. When we started a year ago, my players were for most part new to roleplaying games or they may have played a bit 25-30 years ago in school. So to make the game more approachable, I largely stuck with creatures they would recognise from books and movies such as goblins, undead, unicorns, etc. But this year I want to introduce new unfamiliar baddies and one such group is what I call “The Masquerade” which is…

It should be no secret that Hasslefree miniatures is one of my favourite miniatures provider. Their minis have such character, with honesty and functionality. And Mother Morrigan is a great example of this: Functional and deadly with character to boot. She did not take long to paint but I am very happy with the result. only thing I am not quite happy with is the symbol of Erathis on her book.

My financée’s name is Elena so when I saw this mini it was an instant buy! Ok… so here is a paint that I am unhappy with. I really think her face makeup and eyes looks like that of a prostitute, but her face is so small that I can’t really see her features. I think this mini more than any other has hammered home that my eyes are not as good as they used to be 🙁 i do feel I can do better on the makeup though because the faces of these High Elves are not much bigger…

I believe I got this badass Barbarian from my fiancée in a box of mixed minis she got for me. I actually had a game planned for our Dungeons & Dragons campaign, but the path of the party has gone in a slightly different direction. Still hope to use him and some barbarian models I have from Hasslefree Miniatures in the future. Quite happy with the paint job eventhough he didn’t take that long to paint. It goes to show simple colourschemes are often very effective

While shopping the Hasslefree site, I found these village and halloween kids. Wasn’t sure what to use them for originally, but now the Devil Boy is part of a magic item I made up called “White Bag of Tricks” alongside the Angel and the Angel Babies… and I think the Village Kids themselves will feature in Chapter 2 of “War of the Triplets”… maybe.

This Necromancer was the chief baddie in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. The first ever adventure I’ve created in decades, I could even say in this millinia, was based around a Unicorn my partner found at Leisure Games. And when I was looking to find a suitable adversary, I found this amazing Female Necromancer from Dark Sword Miniatures. And the rest of the first adventure took shape from there. Obviously a Necromancer is way too tough a boss for a level 1 party, so the way it ended up working was, she was busy transforming…

This Wizard acted as a Mock-Necromancer featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. I bought this guy randomly as I thought the way the miniature was sculpted was quite interesting. I’m glad I did as the mock-Necromancer I needed for the first chapter of my Dungeons & Dragons capaign, didn’t arrive in time!

This Assassin featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. To be honest I bought this assassin, and this female thief, both from Dark Sword Miniatures, simply because they were cool! In the end they were perfect as supporting baddies for the party’s very first encounter, which was an assassination attempt by the Wererat Oleg the Ugly.
