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.

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.

This Nightmare featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. This mini was fun to paint, but it was a back-up mini in the game if things went wrong. Essentially the party was to save a Unicorn from being sacrificed in a evil ritual to create a Nightmare. Fortunately for the unicorn the players managed to stop the ritual, but that meant the Nightmare didn’t get to take the stage…. this time! As you may have noticed there’s a burning horse corpse as well. This was used by a mock Necromancer to create diversion to…

This Zombie Werewolf featured as a Wolfen Zombie in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. Oh this was one fun miniature to paint. The thing about playing Dungeons & Dragons is that you are not limited to a certain range of miniatures as you would be with a tabletop wargame or boardgame. As such you can pick up random minis like this one and suddenly an adventure snip;pet forms in your head, in this case I thought this Zombie Werewolf was perfect as a Wolfen Zombie an unholy abomination used as a powerful guardian.
