At the time of writing this, UK is in lockdown due to the Corana virus. This means that A) we can no longer get together for Dungeons & Dragons and B) we now have enough time to increase the frequency of D&D games! Given I’m an old-school D&D hobbyist, playing online with Roll20 etc has […]
When last we met our Nightshift heroes, they had come in possession of the Black Sapphire, that on the surface was a disputed heirloom, but given the events unfolding, the heroes suspect it is much more than just an unusual gem stone. The only clue they had was their dying patreon saying they need to […]
Now that we are starting a more city based and civilised campaign, I’ve found Darksword Miniatures’ Game of Thrones line great for NPCs such as these two Maesters as Scholars. I do find that the blonde man looks a bit like Jeremy Corbyn Scholars of the Institute of Fairy Studies
The George R.R. Martin Masterworks miniatures are fantastic as city NPCs and these three ladies are no exception. The Sansa miniature acts as Baroness Leonilda Von Crupp in our Daisygate campaign. I generally struggle with female faces but I feel these three are better than any I’ve painted before.

I’ve spent the last year and a half finding dwarven undead… I’ve found 5 minis so far and then I found the Ancient Grudges – Bonefields set from Macrocosm Games that has a ton of Dwarf and Goblin Skellies! Great variety and quality of these little cute minis. I painted them using this speed painting […]
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.
