My financée’s name is Elena so when I saw this mini it was an instant buy! Ok… so here is a paint that I am unhappy with. I really think her face makeup and eyes looks like that of a prostitute, but her face is so small that I can’t really see her features. I think this mini more than any other has hammered home that my eyes are not as good as they used to be 🙁 i do feel I can do better on the makeup though because the faces of these High Elves are not much bigger…
I believe I got this badass Barbarian from my fiancée in a box of mixed minis she got for me. I actually had a game planned for our Dungeons & Dragons campaign, but the path of the party has gone in a slightly different direction. Still hope to use him and some barbarian models I have from Hasslefree Miniatures in the future. Quite happy with the paint job eventhough he didn’t take that long to paint. It goes to show simple colourschemes are often very effective
As with the super cool Troll Mercenary Boson Grogspar, I will be using this badass Hill Troll from Reaper as an Ogre or half Ogre as Trolls in Heden Rei, the world we play D&D in, are more feral and more like nordic trolls. I got this troll from my fiancée in a box full of mixed miniatures when we started D&D early 2018. Very pleased with how the leather turned out on this one
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 cute / scary little goblin from my partner and really wanted to add it to our Dungeons & Dragons campaign. However, next to both the characters and other monster, he didn’t look that scary, so I was wondering how to make him a real threat. In the end I decided to have him chase a boy on the other side of a chasm the party was in the process of crossing via a narrow bridge. This worked like a charm. The scared boy really bought gravity to the situation and the players stepped up to the challenge to get…
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 got this cool miniature in one amazing box full of minis I got for my birthday and it gave me an idea for a “White Bag of Tricks” magic item from which you can draw various celestial beings including angel babies and a devil boy.
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.
As per the Dain Deepaxe post, I’ve picked up Dungeons & Dragons for the first time in 20 years. When I picked up the rulebooks, my partner spotted this amazing Unicorn, Silverhorn, from Reaper Miniatures and I am very happy with the result. I do love this “Mio Mini Pony” colourscheme, which I’ve also used on the Thundervale Huntress from Super Dungeon Explore and plan to use it for the Unicorn Pet for Arcadia Quest.
As per the Dain Deepaxe post, I’ve picked up Dungeons & Dragons for the first time in 20 years and this Reaper Plague is one of the first minis I’ve painted for the game.
I’ve decided to start playing Dungeons & Dragons again this yea, 2018… which incidentally makes it 20 years since I last played any roleplaying game. I’ve gathered 5-6 players, most who have never played Dungeons & Dragons, or any roleplaying games for that matter. I’ll be the Game Master and have been writing up a one-off adventure for them to get started. To get started I went to one of my local game stores, Leisure Games, to pick up the rulebooks and in doing so also picked up a few random miniatures: The Plague Reaper, Silverhorn and Dain Deepaxe that…
