my partner got me this tough-looking Orc from Reaper. I wanted him to look like a very unsympathetic Slave Task Master, so I made sure he had no decorations or ornaments. Just muscle and rusty armour plates. In our Dungeons & Dragons campaign, he is known as Mr Nice! Orc
I got these Goblin Archers from my partner, but to be honest, they look more like Orcs to me. However, their size is Goblin size so I sam using them as such in our Dungeons & Dragons campaign along side these Goblin Archers from Knightmare Miniatures.
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.
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.
