When I saw these I had an immediate sneaky plan! Can’t wait to put it to play. Great simple miniatures. The Kitty Cats with their master
I do think undead is the best race in Dungeons and Dragons. Yes, I love Goblins, but undeads you can get from the very lowest level and all the way up. I think they also offers the greatest variety and there is something elegant about Egyptian themed undead like this Mummy Queen from Reaper miniatures. The Mummy Queen with her kittens
I only recently learned about Rage Craft Miniatures , but when I saw the photos of this amazing Witch King I bought it immediately. And the real miniature didn’t disappoint! In fact, I’d say eventhough I am happy with the paintjob on this one, it doesn’t do the miniature justice! Really badass undead dude.Would work well as a Death Knight with it’s own personality rather than being a copy of Lord Soth.
Saw this miniatures years ago but didn’t have a use for it (I tend to paint only what I need for playing). And although our D&D party is nowhere near at the level where they can fight vampires, I still think the chance they might one day is a good enough reason to buy and paint it! To me she is the kind of vampire that comes with armour and swords rather than spells.
i cannot believe I haven’t made a page for this Death Tyrant from Jax Miniatures !! i actually painted it in the beginning of last year (2018) when I first started playing Dungeons & Dragons again after a 20 year break. It was even the inspiration for Bebbie the Beholder Bartender. Anyway, better late than never.
I was part of “the wave” when IK Warmachine first hit and was a diehard Cryx player for a long time before I felt the game got too big. But I keep up with what the produce so when I needed an undead captain for a Dungeons & Dragons game, it was an easy choice to get Captain Rengrave. I actually rand short on time so speed painted him following the technique I used for my Zombicide game and I’m quite pleased with the result.
When I bought the Dryad Queen from Greebo Games, I also noticed how many amazing undead miniatures they make and I bought these two without really knowing where they would fit in my campaign. Fast forward to now where we are closing in on the first big conclusion of the campaign, it is clear our arch enemy, the necromancer Varona Stillborn is equally obsessed with the elementals. So turning these two undead champions into elemental based Deathlocks matching my Ice & Snow and my Lava Inferno gaming board sets, seemed to make perfect sense.
while I didWizKidz’ miniatures complain about feeling like toys, there is no reason why you can’t use toys for Dungeons and Dragons. For example, I found these pose skeleton toys by Re-ment in Japan and one of them was a devil one with wings. Quick bone spray, Agrax Earthshade ink and drybrush later, and I have a boss undead skeleton!
Ok… so I saw these Dregs online and I loved them! I don’t know… I think I may have a thing for hag covens and hags and the female Dreg butcher kinda fits as a hag. But I am probably going to use these two as Ghoul guards in a one-shot I’ve created for two of my Danish friends based on, and adapted from, the Prisoners of Molok starter game. I used the speed painting technique I used for my Zombicide game and I am really happy with the result!
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.
This Necromancer was the chief baddie in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. The first ever adventure I’ve created in decades, I could even say in this millinia, was based around a Unicorn my partner found at Leisure Games. And when I was looking to find a suitable adversary, I found this amazing Female Necromancer from Dark Sword Miniatures. And the rest of the first adventure took shape from there. Obviously a Necromancer is way too tough a boss for a level 1 party, so the way it ended up working was, she was busy transforming…
The Moonclad spectre featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. Some miniatures are just easier to paint than others. Take for example the ghostly see-through Caoimhe minis from Hasslefree… How easy were they to paint! 😉 Love these by the way. Decided to paint the bases in Spring, Autumn and Winter colours dependant on how dangerous they are.
