Dungeons & Dragons – Janissa Stonetide (Privateer Press)

For our current troll-focused D&D campaign, I needed a Troll leader that would really stand out and I think Janissa Stonetide from Privateer’s Trollblood line is awesome. To make her stand out even more, I decided to give her a very bright green skin, whereas my other trolls tend to fall into darker themes. This […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Trollkin Warders (Privateer Press)

As our current campaign is focussed around a growing pack of unusually well organised trolls, it has given me a chance to paint awesome Trollkin minis from Privateer Press. This group here reflects a gang of Trolls who have managed to armour themselves.

Dungeons & Dragons – Winter Troll and Ice Troll (Privateer Press)

One of the things I like about Privateer Press’ miniatures is how much the Trollkin miniatures reminds me of the Growlers from the long dead Vor The Maelstrom game. But at the same time they have their own identity and character. For our current Dungeons & Dragons campaign called “The Troll Hunt” I need trolls, […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Cyclops (Meeplevault 3D printing)

This Cyclops was a Christmas present from my wife alongside this Ettin from the same company. But I only just got a chance to finish it in time for a game with my niece and nephew. I think the Ettin was more fun to paint and the result was better, but I am still happy […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Ettin (Meeplevault 3D printing)

All my giant miniatures have been gifts from my lovely wife. I last Christmas she got me two more: An Ettin and a Cyclops from Meeplevault. The Cyclops need to be assembled but the Ettin came as a single piece and what a piece indeed! First of all, the print quality is amazing. Second, the […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Frorigh, Frost Giant (Reaper Miniatures)

My wife got me this mini several years ago, but between then and me painting him, she also got me the Frost Giant from Nolzur’s so that one kinda became our D&D Frost Giant. But recently I needed both a Frost Giant and a Frost Giant Ghost so I last miniute speedpainted Frorigh and I […]

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 – Olaug The Ogre Witch (Monkstone Miniatures)

It was actually some pig folk that caught my eye from the The Three Pigs & Other Denizens of Dünnmere by Monkstone Miniatures, but when i looked through the minis available, I fell in love with this Ogre Witch. She\s been super fun to paint. Unfortunately, I had to repaint her skirt three times as […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Female Stone Giant (Wizkids)

While I feel I have a good technique for painting dragons, I struggled with giants. in fact, I have a complete set of giants my wife has bought me that I am scared to make a start on… or at least I was because I have started now with this female  Stone Giant. I had […]

Warhammer 40.000 – Rogue Trader – Hrothyogg – Ogre Captain (Games Workshop)

I am a big fan of the old Rogue Trader Orks. They have so much personality. But back when i played Warhammer 40k Rogue Trader, I didn’t have access to the fantastic Ogres and Ogryns from Citadel. So it has been a pleasure suddenly being able to paint not just this amazing Ogre by Jes […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Troll (Blood Rage)

I saw this Troll mini by chance and I ordered it on the spot. What a fantastic powerful badass of a troll. However, I left it too late to paint him so ended up using contrast paint and a lot of drybrush and honestly, I am quite happy with the result.
