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!

The Moonclad spectre featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. Some miniatures are just easier to paint than others. Take for example the ghostly see-through Caoimhe minis from Hasslefree… How easy were they to paint! šŸ˜‰ Love these by the way. Decided to paint the bases in Spring, Autumn and Winter colours dependant on how dangerous they are.

These Wolfen featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. I’ve always been a fan of Rackham miniatures, but I must admit the Sacra Vestals minis were a bit of a disappointment. In any case, I speed-painted my way through these three mainly as a backup as the Wolfen were more like victims than enemies in the adventure… buuut just in case the players decided to attack them, I needed the minis. Luckily they didn’t so I haven’t actually used these in the campaign yet.

This Nightmare featured inĀ Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. This mini was fun to paint, but it was a back-up mini in the game if things went wrong. Essentially the party was to save a Unicorn from being sacrificed in a evil ritual to create a Nightmare. Fortunately for the unicorn the players managed to stop the ritual, but that meant the Nightmare didn’t get to take the stage…. this time! As you may have noticed there’s a burning horse corpse as well. This was used by a mock Necromancer to create diversion to…

This Zombie Werewolf featured as a Wolfen Zombie inĀ Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. Oh this was one fun miniature to paint. The thing about playing Dungeons & Dragons is that you are not limited to a certain range of miniatures as you would be with a tabletop wargame or boardgame. As such you can pick up random minis like this one and suddenly an adventure snip;pet forms in your head, in this case I thought this Zombie Werewolf was perfect as a Wolfen ZombieĀ an unholy abomination used as a powerful guardian.

This Assassin featured inĀ 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.

This Wererat Rogue featured inĀ Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. I originally bought the human form thinking it was perfect for a sneaky assassin for the party’s very first combat. Later I realised there was a wererat form too so got that one and an easy encounter changed to a tough one, especially with a male and a female henchman joining too. The plan was actually to have the Wererat be the leader Oleg the Ugly and for him to escape… since werecreatures can only be harmed with magical weapons, which the party had…

That’s it! My first roleplaying game in 20 years has come and gone. It is also my first time being a Dungeon Master in 20 years and first time playing Dungeons & Dragons since 1989! And it went well judging on the reaction of the players: 1 who is a regular Dungeons & Dragons player 2 who haven’t played since they were early teens 2 who have never played before. It has been slightly daunting, but also great fun pulling a world and a one-shot adventure together called “Pure and Lost”, which was about saving a Unicorn from an evil…

Jan 2018 I picked up playing Roleplaying Games again as Dungeon Master for the homebrew Dungeons and Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. 4 out of the 5 players in my group where either completely new to roleplaying games or had played a tiny bit as kids some 30 years ago! So I ran a session for each of them where we first created their character and then I threw them into a mini adventure called “Jorn The Wellwatcher” to teach them the basics. Setting the scene Itā€™s been a long time since the party was together, but they have…
