I won’t lie: I’ve been wanting to paint these crazy little dudes since I saw them the first time. But since I no longer play Warmachine, I didn’t have a reason to buy them. However, having picked up Dungeons & Dragons, they seemed like a perfect type of crazy fit into the Feywild which is becoming more and more prominent in our currrent campaign.
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.
Given I made a Dungeons & Dragons adventure that was crocodile themed for our current campaign, I decided that Lizardmen in my world, Heden Rei, would be Gatormen instead. Some minor tweaks to stats but otherwise identical. These Gatormen minis was speed painted as I needed them done fast in time for the adventure.
While randomly browsing to find miniatures suitable for the Feywild, I found this elegant “undead” named Bianca at Greebo Games who I think is perfect as a Dryad Queen in my Dungeons & dragons campaign as there seems to be a Feywild current evolving. I painted her rather quickly: Brown, inked with Earthshade, drybrushed and added some gold highlights to give her some sparkle.
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.
I use the Gatormen miniatures from Hordes as Lizardmen in our current Dungeons & Dragons campaign. Mostly I use the stats like for like, but for Jaga-Jaga, I made her a beefed up Lizardman Shaman with a bonus attack taken from a snake making her quite leathal in close combat. She proved a serious challenge for the party.

I had one of my player’s and his family over for lunch last Sunday and last minute, he asked whether I fancied running a mini-adventure for him and his young son and daughter. He would be using his main character, Feather, the Cleric, who just hit level 3, and the kids would use the characters they used to play at home, both also level 3. I did start thinking up an adventure, but then I decided to do a Google on “quick oneshots” and found this amazing collection of One Page Dungeons. I had a quick look through roughly 20…
