When I started playing Dungeons & Dragons earlier this year, the first scenery things I made were a few simple, traditional dungeon corridors and rooms with square-tiled floors, each 5x 5 feet, for the first adventure.     But I also realised I needed something that would work for the outdoors encounters in the adventure and I wanted to make something that felt more open so I came up with the idea of using hexagon tiles for outside encounters to give the movement a slightly different and more free feel. And to take things to the extreme, I made the whole…

Having played a spin-off game with one of my players and his kids who both knew Dungeons and Dragons already, I made a second game for same team + one of my other players and his two sons as well: The Kidnapping at Dragonspeak! To make it easier for the boys who hadn’t played before, I made these children-friendly character sheets. . Epilogue Hundreds of years ago the dragons ruled the world from the mountain “Dragonspeak”. Now the dragons are long gone and the town of “Drakenheim” at the foot of Dragonspeak is one of the most peaceful and pleasant…

I got this amazing skiing skeleton as a freebie in an order from Otherworld Miniatures…. The question is not “should I use him in my current D&D campaign?” but “how on earth do I get him into the campaign?” 🙂 In the end I introduced him to a game in flight in a spur of the moment action speeding down a snowy mountain towards the party. And the crowd loved him.

I got this cute / scary little goblin from my partner and really wanted to add it to our Dungeons & Dragons campaign. However, next to both the characters and other monster, he didn’t look that scary, so I was wondering how to make him a real threat. In the end I decided to have him chase a boy on the other side of a chasm the party was in the process of crossing via a narrow bridge. This worked like a charm. The scared boy really bought gravity to the situation and the players stepped up to the challenge to get…

I really like the Goblins from Knightmare Games. From the Boss and the Elite and the Shaman to these lowly Goblin Archers, they all have amazing character and fits right into how I see Goblins as a people, not just monsters. I’ve made use of them in our current Dungeons & Dragons campaign along side these Goblin Archers from Reaper to create a real threat in numbers.

While looking for evil dwarves, I found this tank of an orc at Mom Miniaturas, the same place as I found these amazing Dwarf Stone Golems. I couldn’t resist buying him as he is perfect for a huge, brutal but intelligent Orc warlord. I will fit him in as a main character later in my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. I used same painting technique as I used on my Minotaur and although I think the Minotaur turned out better, I am still happy with this Orc.

I don;’t know… maybe hags are slowly turning into my favourite Dungeons & Dragons monsters. I find them full of character and possibilities and love the minis. They also fit the evolving Feywild storyline in my current Dungeons & Dragons campaign. Just look at this Reaper Witch Coven and the lonely hag from Heresy Miniatures.

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.
