So … my party has figured out that they can run away from mimics… or so they thought! Not had a chance to field this crazy fast mimic yet, but I will!
Contrary to Grogspar, the Mercenary Troll and the Hill Troll from Reaper, both which I am using as Ogres, the Forest Troll Shaman from North Star is exactly my idea of what a Troll should look like, which is driven from my childhood in the Nordics where trolls just look a certain way. The movie The Troll Hunter is a great representation of Nordic trolls except they behave more like animals.
As with the super cool Troll Mercenary Boson Grogspar, I will be using this badass Hill Troll from Reaper as an Ogre or half Ogre as Trolls in Heden Rei, the world we play D&D in, are more feral and more like nordic trolls. I got this troll from my fiancée in a box full of mixed miniatures when we started D&D early 2018. Very pleased with how the leather turned out on this one
While I don’t play Privateer Press games anymore, I still love their minis and some of them have that quirky personality and character I loved about Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader Orks and this fantastic Trollkin sailor is a great example of this. Pipe and dynamite strapped to his harpoon… what more do you need? However, for Dungeons and Dragons I’ve used him as a half-ogre instead as in my D&D world trolls are more feral and tend to be inspired by trolls from the nordics where I originally come from. Actually check out the movie The Troll Hunter to get a…
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.
I think Privateer Press makes some fantastic miniatures, and some of them, like this Swamp Horror, is great inspiration for a Dungeons & Dragons adventure. My players haven’t faced this one yet in our current campaign… but they will! Base is using “Scenic Water” from Woodland Scenics and “Valhallan Blizzard” from Games Workshop.
I am a big fan of Dark Sword Miniatures. However, this quirky Shambler is not the type of min I ussually expect from them. I think it is great! It is the first miniature in a long time I bought without having a clear purpose in mind, but since there seems to be a Feywild parallel story going on in my Dungeons & Dragons campaign, maybe it can fit into that type of forrest-y adventure.
One of the amazing side-effects of playing Dungeons & Dragons again is tat I am no longer locked into a specific miniature line in the same way you tend to get with Tabletop Wargames. As I ave ventured into the world of Roleplaying Games, I’ve found so many cool companies creating all these amazing miniatures. While looking for evil dwarves miniatures, I found these three awesome Stone Golems from MOM Miniaturas. As with the Mierce Wyvern, these gents were also speed painted: Prime grey Drybrush ligt grey to almost white Paint metal bits bronze Glaze over with a suitable green…
So this is one of those where I’d love to say I spent hours… nay… DAYS on the paint job… but I did not. Bottomline is I speed painted my way right through this and am very happy with the result! Prime Green Ink with Coelia Greenshade from Games Workshop Drybrush with a light green Drybrush with an even lighter green Paint nails and claws bone. Ink with Agrax Earthshade from Games Workshop Paint eyes with a neon yellow from Vallejo Add purple tongue for good measure! Base with stones and terrain flock. Done! Can’t wait for an opportunity to…
Found this super awesome Minotaur at Mierce Miniatures stand at this year’s Salute. He didn’t really fit into my ongoing Dungeons & Dragons campaign, but he was too cool to pass by. As it happened, I had to pause the overall campaign for a bit, which meant I was able to do a spin-off chapter using this dude as the bad guy.
And this is my first Dragon for Dungeons & Dragons! I’m quite pleased with this one.
Since Chapter 1.5 of “The War of the Triplets” was a spin-off episode, I wanted a different feel, which meant a different villain in his own world and Dr Frankenmuller and his Flesh Golem was perfect for that role.
