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.

I have to be honest, I am a really big fan of Darksword Miniatures, but this Dragonkin Warrior is my least favourite of their Dragonkin minis. But I wanted a full set of their Dragonkin minis which I in general think are awesome. I ordered it. And the day after they revealed a new much cooler Dragonkin warrior… nothing is ever easy! Quite like the green reptilian feel he has ended up with.

Having ended 2018 with the closure of the first story arc of the War of The Triplet, we started 2019 with the party finding out where to go from here in a sandbox style game. The games I ran in 2018 were, not railroads, but they were linear to keep a single focus. But starting 2019 I wanted to open up the decisions to the players themselves. Having ended 2018 by killing the Necromancer Verona Stillborn, Daughter of the Unseeing Eye, her sister, the vampire Hortensia Everbleed tasked the party with tracking down the third sister who would have a…

So.. I actually didn’t think I would paint or build anymore this year, but I been wanting for some time to do some kind of mini display to put minis and bits of furniture on…. basically like a mini dollhouse. I then had the idea to double these Dungeons & Dollhouses up as floorboards for my Medieval Tavern from Zealot Miniatures. And over the last few days, I created these floor boards with detachable wall sections. The technique for the stoneworks comes from Black Magic Craft’s video on painting stoneworks and the inspiration for the wooden floor is from Runehammer’s video on 2.6D Reversible…

Getting back into Dungeons & Dragons this year has truly revived my painting hobby and looking back at 2018, I have painted more minis this year than the previous decade!

Following on from my Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 painted miniatures! and Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – The games we played in 2018! I wanted to capture all the terrain and scenery I either bought and painted or built and painted. My experience with building scenery has mainly been limited to tabletop wargames so by and large we are talking flat boards, some ruins and something elevated to put long-ranged weaponry on. So I have to say, while I do love painting miniatures (been doing it for 30+ years by now on and off), what I’ve enjoyed the most has…

And finally, following on from Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 terrain boards and scatter! and Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 painted miniatures! I want to create a list of the games we played this year, roughly 1 per month, which was an amazing feat given the hardest part of being a Dungeon Master is aligning everybody’s busy schedules. Rounded numbers are main games where the whole team was present. Games with x.x are spin-off chapters that, while not directly in the campaign trail, still took place with same characters in the same world. I also played…

In our 2018 campaign, we’ve been running around in a lot of Dungeons, but not encountered any Dragons (well… apart from our Rogue running into a Dragon Whelp). The closest has been an encounter with a Wyvern that brought down an airship, marooning the party on an island. However, I am hoping to change that in 2019 and this cool Silver Dragon from Wizkids worked perfectly as a young White Dragon, which goes well with my Ice and Snow Terrain Board… and it also aligns with an encounter I think may fit where the party is going. One of the…

When I was planning my D&D Christmas oneshot for 2018, I was roaming the internet to find Christmas themed miniatures and found this crazy Ogre Santa from Scibor Miniatures. It arrived two days before the game, but with Dragonmeet 2018 in between, I had little time to paint it, so I ended up speed painting him as fast as I could. Sure I could have chosen a wider range of colours, made more details etc, but overall I’m happy with the result.

The last campaign session we played, neatly wrapped up 2018 as a season, so for the last D&D game of the year, I made this Christmas Oneshot called “Gnome More Mr Nice Guy1” inspired by these these absolutely fantastic Gnomes from Northumbrian Tin Soldier. Below is how the game went, but if you are a Dungeon Master yourself and want to run this, you can find the actual Oneshot here. Since this was a oneshot, it gave my players a chance to try something new.. a new class that is, because the race was Mousling. The Ranger chose to be the Fighter…
