Having started 2019 with a sand box style open game based around information gathering, I wanted the follow up game to be equally open-ended but much more action oriented. The adventure started action heavy with a unit of “Trueborn” (a clan of xenophobic, paranoid and highly informed Dragonborn) who wanted the party to hand over a map they had acquired, which would lead them to the Dragon Spire, the home of the Trueborn. I made this encounter in two parts to really crank up the difficulty. First part was inside the Elven Omnitropolis before the party had managed to exit…

To prepare for the infernal direction our Dungeons & Dragons campaign is taking, I have been painting a few infernal miniatures for the first time. While the Tieflings have been fun to paint, and the Succubus introduced some leathery wings and an even more infernal feel, I still felt I needed some badass major devil in for team inferno. I looked at quite a few minis for this and even considered using Thagrosh the Messiah from Hordes, but in the end, I wanted something much more classic. An absolute no-doubt-this-is-a-devil miniature. And I found this fantastic B’hakoth the Destroyer mini…

Dungeons & Dragons campaign is turning infernal I’ve been painting my first three ever infernal miniatures. This cool Damien, Hellborn Wizard from Reaper Miniatures is one out of three. The other two being The other two being the Semira Marise and Winged Imogen miniatures from Hasslefree. When I was looking for suitable Tiefling miniatures I found several sassy, sensual and sexy female miniatures, but I haven’t find many male Tiefling minis that exudes the same level of sensualness. This Damien, Hellborn Wizard miniature brings some male sexiness to the table with his bare chest, power pose, furred and animalistic coat and tooth necklace to top…

As our Dungeons & Dragons campaign is turning infernal, I’ve had a chance to paint some infernal miniatures for the first time in my hobby career. Semira Marise from Hasslefree is perfect as a sensual Tiefling lady and she is one of three first ever infernal miniatures for me, the other two  being the Winged Imogen miniature also from Hasslefree and the Damien, Hellborn Wizard from Reaper Miniatures. I think this minis casual pose and dress gives it a sensual flair, without being overly sexed-up. To highlight this, I gave her a very dark red skin and a light cream gown with the aim…

Although I’ve played both tabletop wargames and tabletop roleplaying games a lot in my life, I’ve never actually ever fielded or painted any devil miniatures. This Winged Imogen miniature from Hasslefree is one I’ve thought was awesome for years, but since I didn’t have a use for it in a game, I never bought it. Now that the trajectory of the party in our Dungeons & Dragons campaign is turning infernal, I finally had a reason to buy this amazing mini as on of my three ever first infernal miniatures. The other two being the Semira Marise miniature also from Hasslefree…

I’ve been wanting for a while to add in an unknown or strange type adversary into our Dungeons and Dragons campaign War of the Triplets. When we started a year ago, my players were for most part new to roleplaying games or they may have played a bit 25-30 years ago in school. So to make the game more approachable, I largely stuck with creatures they would recognise from books and movies such as goblins, undead, unicorns, etc. But this year I want to introduce new unfamiliar baddies and one such group is what I call “The Masquerade” which is…

It should be no secret that Hasslefree miniatures is one of my favourite miniatures provider. Their minis have such character, with honesty and functionality. And Mother Morrigan is a great example of this: Functional and deadly with character to boot. She did not take long to paint but I am very happy with the result. only thing I am not quite happy with is the symbol of Erathis on her book.

I have to be honest, I am a really big fan of Darksword Miniatures, but this Dragonkin Warrior is my least favourite of their Dragonkin minis. But I wanted a full set of their Dragonkin minis which I in general think are awesome. I ordered it. And the day after they revealed a new much cooler Dragonkin warrior… nothing is ever easy! Quite like the green reptilian feel he has ended up with.

Having ended 2018 with the closure of the first story arc of the War of The Triplet, we started 2019 with the party finding out where to go from here in a sandbox style game. The games I ran in 2018 were, not railroads, but they were linear to keep a single focus. But starting 2019 I wanted to open up the decisions to the players themselves. Having ended 2018 by killing the Necromancer Verona Stillborn, Daughter of the Unseeing Eye, her sister, the vampire Hortensia Everbleed tasked the party with tracking down the third sister who would have a…
