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 […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Stormcast Eternals Knight-Questor Larissa Shadowstalker (Games Workshop)

I bought this on a whim back in London back in 2019. Fast forward to now in Copenhagen, I finally got a chance to paint her. I am not a fan of the Stormcast paint jobs. They look shiny and plastic and like toys. Doesn’t fit D&D where I think she would be good as […]

Stuck in the future where all the gods and godlike powers have been displaced by a furious Fey attack using the forest itself, our heroes are working to bring their patrons back.

Dungeons & Dragons – Gaming board set 12 – Dungeons and more civilised places

Now that we are starting to settle in in Copenhagen, I thought it would be fun to start creating some bigger scenery pieces having been using UDT almost exclusively for last 18 months. And I did have an upcoming D&D session I wanted to run as a small classic dungeon crawl in a temple consisting […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Female Dark Elves with Crossbows (Gamezone Miniatures)

The only Gamezone Miniatures I had up until this point was some mighty fine halbediers, so was great to get some more of their fantastic miniatures. I needed these Dark Elves for a game so I decided to speed paint them and I have to say I am really pleased with the result. The set […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Daisygate Chapter 21: A Growl and A Laughter

This is the first time since we left London in July last year that we play with miniatures. Photos by my lovely wife. The party, having had to come to terms with the fact they are 300 years in the future (and have lost their patron given powers), had decided to follow a rumour about […]

A rare opportunity to look through all my minis

While I have this, my hobby site, and while I actively use my miniatures, it is a rare chance to lay out all my minis at once. Really the only time you do this, is when you either do a massive cleaning exercise or you move home. In my case it has been the latter […]

Getting your players back to the beginner’s mindset in D&D

Listening to the ever-awesome Runehammer talking about the value of beginner’s mindset in D&D. Having that awe and wonder, that sense of not expectations of oneself or the game, nothing to prove and that sense of immersion and gravity of the unknown. The chat is almost 2 hours, but it is absolutely worth it if […]

Dungeons & Dragons – Gaming board set 11 – The Underdark terrain set made from cork table protectors

Inspired by this cool terrain tutorial I decided to make a small Underdark terrain set out of cork table protectors, glue and paint. This was fun, fast, easy and different to make. Normally I would never use these colour combos but frankly, crafting this terrain made me reminisce of the days when I was digging […]
