One of my friends is playing Dungeons & Dragons for the first time and when I first spoke to her about it, her first reaction was she wanted to be a big scruffy barbarian guy! However, after having done some research on her own she changed her mind to a Dragonborn Sorcerer, which was an amazing u-turn… and I had actually bought this amazing Dragonkin Mage from Darksword Miniatures so perfect timing.

The Dwarf player of my “War of the Triplets” campaign is new to Dungeons and Dragons, but I know his sense of humour so this pipe-smoking, beer guzzling cheeky dwart miniature from Hasslefree Miniatures was perfect. Besides, I’ve always wanted to paint Hasslefree minis, but since I only paint what I can play with, I’ve never had much of an excuse to buy some… now I do.

My partner is new to Dungeons & Dragons and se chose to be a High Elf Ranger, who has had to exile himself for various reasons. However, when we were browsing for a miniature for her, she found two art Darksword Miniatures that she liked and in the end we got both and I painted them the same so she can swap them around as she pleases. Wat was interesting was, I would have defaulted to painting them green-ish like a classic Ranger had she not had a clear mind in her head of what she wanted him to look…

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…

This Wizard acted as a Mock-Necromancer featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. I bought this guy randomly as I thought the way the miniature was sculpted was quite interesting. I’m glad I did as the mock-Necromancer I needed for the first chapter of my Dungeons & Dragons capaign, didn’t arrive in time!

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.

These Wolfen featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. I’ve always been a fan of Rackham miniatures, but I must admit the Sacra Vestals minis were a bit of a disappointment. In any case, I speed-painted my way through these three mainly as a backup as the Wolfen were more like victims than enemies in the adventure… buuut just in case the players decided to attack them, I needed the minis. Luckily they didn’t so I haven’t actually used these in the campaign yet.

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.

This Assassin featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. To be honest I bought this assassin, and this female thief, both from Dark Sword Miniatures, simply because they were cool! In the end they were perfect as supporting baddies for the party’s very first encounter, which was an assassination attempt by the Wererat Oleg the Ugly.
