Dungeons & Dragons – Slaanesh Infernal Enrapturess (Games Workshop)

I don’t play Games Worksho[ games these days, but their miniatures are just fantastic, so when I get a chance, I snap one up to paint for Dungeons & Dragons like this Infernal Enrapturess that I used to emphasise the creepiness of a Vampire castle. I combined it with the “Danse Macabre” trap combined with […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Lord Varkula, Magna Nosferatu (Cadwallon Miniatures)

Very little good has come from Brexit, but one good thing is that it has opened my eyes for miniature manufactures outside the UK. One great example is Cadwallon Miniatures  where I found this fantastic and characterful Nosferatu. As a paint job, this is unique to me as I decided to paint his armour in […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Female Vampire (A) and Male Vampire (B) (DnDFigurer)

Painting 3D printed minis is fairly new to me, but I think when they are not overdone with details, they can be really cool, like these two Vampires from dndfigurer.dk. They have so much goth classic character.

Dungeons & Dragons – Brain in a Jar

This idea came from a desire of A) add an unfamiliar monster that would really make the players look twice B) bring in my own D&D character to the future world the party found themselves in at the time. By chance I bought “Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft” which had the interesting “Brain in a […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Daisygate Chapter 25: Climbing the Crimson Spire (All good things must come to an end)

We left our heroes after they had routed the Empress Eternal in her own home. Damon the Paladin had cast Haste on Grimshaw the Dwarven Barebarian, who was now in hot pursuit of the fleeing vampire. Grimshaw ran into the second floor of the Crimson Spire facing a hallway of doors and the wounded and […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Daisygate Chapter 24: Entering the Crimson Spire

As planned, our heroes mounted the horse cart previously used to ferry Fey victims into the Crimson Spire. The plan was to pretend to be bringing a cage full of fey to whatever unholy end they face in the Spire. Tense and alert, the party made it into the eerie silence that foreshadowed the strong […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Fey Girl Aidreth Treeborn (DnDFigurer)

Not much to say here. Super fun mini to paint and I am really happy with the result. I painted her in between painting the Storm Giant. Every time I waited for him to dry, I painted her. It is a 3D printed miniature bought at dndfigurer.dk

Dungeons & Dragons – Storm Giant Royal Guard (D&D Collector’s Series)

What an incredible miniature! I got this as a Christmas present from my wife back in 2019, but it has taken me up until now to get to it. I have never painted such a big miniature, so I used some methods normally associated painting grimdark especially for the armour and I am really happy […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Frost Giant (Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures)

This Frost Giant was the second giant following the Storm Giant. While not as epic and mighty as the Storm Giant, this Frost Giant certainly still oozes of power of brute strength. For that reason, I decided to paint him much more grounded than the Stone Giant, by making his weapons worn and littered with […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Yeti (Atlantis Miniatures)

This was the third of the “Big Boys” I painted back to back, starting with the Storm Giant and the Frost Giant. While the Yeti isn’t part of the Ordening (or even Giantkind), it can still work fine as a buddy to the Frost Giant, maybe a pet, maybe a short-lived alliance. This was one […]

Pages from my DM notebook 2019-2021

14 Sept 2019 we held our wedding reception and a few days before, my wife bought me a notebook for D&D. I wrote my wedding speech on the first pages and since then it has been my DM notebook as we travelled from UK through Sweden to Denmark in the middle of the pandemic. The […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Daisygate Chapter 23: Looking for answers and a way in

DM note: Since this game had to be heavy on finding information, I took inspiration from “Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master” and rather than try to second-guess what our heroes would do, I instead wrote: A list of secrets and truths to be discovered A list of likely places A list of likely NPCs […]
