My wife bought me this a while back. As I wasn’t sure what to use it for, I never got around to paint it as I tend to paint what i need for the game. However, I sat down and painted it and good thing I did as I suddenly needed it as a fallback option in our Daisygate campaign as we had a TPK! Quite happy with the result. Maybe the glow could have been toned down a bit, but I am happy with it. I am not really sure what to categorise Death as. I know he looks…

While I feel I have a good technique for painting dragons, I struggled with giants. in fact, I have a complete set of giants my wife has bought me that I am scared to make a start on… or at least I was because I have started now with this female  Stone Giant. I had to paint her fast so this was done fast. Painted skin grey, painted cloth in various contrast paints. Inked it all with Agrax Earthshade and drybrushed with a bone colour. Done! I actually think she turned out alright for a speed paint job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lSQzZtoBU8

On their way to Twobridges, the three adventures, the “Internationals” stopped at small farmer settlement just North West of Twobridges. Here they spent a few days recharging the “Long Road Tavern”, but one day a distraught young man came in alerting the farmers that an old lady had been mauled to death. The area had had problems with a beast of sorts attacking livestock but this was the first time it had attacked a person. The suspicion quickly fell on the local oddball, the woodsman Sheamus Redleaf who the locals claimed to have seen change into beastly shapes. Soon the…

Having learned of the Baroness’ disappearance, Damon rallied the rest of the Nightshift heroes and they quickly ran through a number of ideas of how to get into the castle and in the end settled for a similar approach as what Damon had had success with already: The two Paladins would claim to be entering the castle to provide extra protection for the Baroness while Alyanys the Warlock made herself and Welby the Halfling invisible and followed closely. It was an easy ploy made easier by name-dropping Sergeant Konrad who had previously let Damon inside. Inside the castle The four…

The Nightshift, is our current active party in our Daisygate campaign and I want to chronicle how the party evolves similar to what I did with the A-Team from our previous campaign.

ok… I didn’t play this entirely fair. I painted the woman in the bathtub without the blood and posted her on Twitter knowing some of my players would spot her. The truth is, she is the villain of the story who bathes in the blood of fairies, rather than an innocent bystander. Fun way to use an otherwise relatively harmless miniature for something interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vKe2cKFLQc&t=7s

I thought it would be fun to create an evolution timeline of our heroes from the now ended campaign War of the Triplets. Starting party: Feather – Tabaxi Cleric B.J – Blue Dragonborn Sorcerer Grimshaw Elffucker – Hill Dwarf Barbarian Alfein – Drow Rogue Alaris Hiddenlore – Highelf Ranger Alaris’ wolf “Argento” Not quite an evolution as the lineup is the same, but I got a new wolf miniature for the Ranger. Feather – Tabaxi Cleric B.J – Blue Dragonborn Sorcerer Grimshaw Elffucker – Hill Dwarf Barbarian Alfein – Drow Rogue Alaris Hiddenlore – Highelf Ranger Alaris’ wolf “Argento” Grimshaw…

DM note, this game was inspired by Matt Colville’s recent video on running a One-on-One D&D game. I’ve never run any RPG for only one player so I was curious as to how this would be. So instead of informing one of my players of a background story for our next game, I decided to play it out as a small mini adventure and it was actually quite a lot of fun! Our Paladin Damon had been spending his free time at the upmarket tavern The Gilded Goose located near Castle Daisygate in Feyview. Here he had started a relationship with…

I saw this miniature at Dragon Meet 2019 and I really liked it but I didn’t buy it as I didn’t have a use for it. Now that our Dungeons & Dragons games are closer aligned with the Feywild, a Centaur might come in handy so I bought it. Fantastic miniature. I decided to paint it in white and brown patches all the way up his human torso. i really like it, but wouldn’t mind a more traditional colourscheme…. so I’ve ordered a new one to paint. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLcNBhmIEP4

DM: Sean Brand, one of the Paladins of the party, had disappeared again. This was not the first time, but it had been days and his companions was starting to get nervous. As they were sitting around their usual table in The Unnamed Tavern, a Sprite arrived looking for them as he had found Brand delirious by the coast. The heroes quickly found Brand washed up on the shore, but rushing to rescue him, they disturbed the feeding grounds of a group of Sahuagin who took offence and attacked the heroes. They were no match for our heroes as they…

These are my notes as a player as this Chapter was DMed by  first-time Dungeon Master Tony, who did a great job despite having the handicap of having to run the game remotely due to the current pandemic. This was my second game as a player. Our heroes were hanging out in the Unnamed Tavern when a Knight-type character in the unusualy company of two Orcs entered the tavern. They aimed for the bar owner and in somewhat aggressive fashion started questioning him about Dr Kloner. The bar owner looked positively puzzled and frightened and the heroes stepped in to calm…
