Update - more model painting

The majority of the miniatures that I have sourced for this dungeon are now either fully painted or just in need of a quick matte varnish.

However I still have a list of models that need to be painted and I was hoping to get them done this week, but those plans might not happen as I am still trying to find time to complete the Jaeger models that I bought from scibor miniatures a few weeks ago.


If you have listened to the WoTC pod cast and watched the videos that I posted earlier on this blog you will know that at the end of the dungeon the party get to pilot a huge "Jaeger" to take on the final baddie....well I planned on building a Jaeger myself but due to a lack of skill in doing this and also time frames of getting the project started I had to shelve these plans. 

So I started to search the internet for anything that I could use to represent the Jaegers that the party would find and after much searching I came across the scibor miniatures website and bought 3 of their huge steam-powered robot models. All of them needed to be built and painted and this process has taken quite a lot of time.

However 2 of the Jaegers are now ready so I just have one left and I should hopefully get that completed tonight, once they are all finished I will post some pictures of them on here.

In the meantime I will post of pictures of the other miniatures that I have painted for this dungeon.

Hope you enjoy..!!

Lost Mines of Phandelver - Thunder Tree Village

So me and my gaming friends got together again at the weekend to play the next part of the D&D adventure Lost Mines of Phandelver.

Here are some photos taken by myself and one of the other players.
The first set of pictures show the village of Thunder Tree, we travelled here to find a druid who we hoped would help us find Cragmaw Castle.

Outside of the druids tavern, we had a big fight with a horde of Ash Zombies and the druid got out some popcorn and watched the battle.
Green Dragon lair....not quite big enough for his liking so he might be moving home soon.
Awesome Ettercap that we fought, this was made by the DM and scared the hell out of party.

Ark of the Mad Mage - update

Hi all, 

So I set up this blog to document a AD&D dungeon that I created/copied which is based on the excellent pod casts and PAX 2013 D&D dungeons run by Chris Perkins for his "(in)famous" D&D crew.

If you have seen or listened to these pod casts and videos then you will know the back story of what this dungeon was and how is played out with the DM and players. However I wanted to re-create the dungeon for my group of gaming friends so that they could experience the game for real.

When I first set out to write this dungeon I spent a lot of time listening, watching and then re-listening and re-watching the various pod casts and videos so that I knew the original dungeon concepts inside and out. 

Hopefully you will enjoy what I have presented here and you will be able to see how I moved from the original concept of bringing this dungeon to the table and how it finally played out.

I haven't informed any of my friends who I am running this dungeon for that I have set…

Lost Mines of Phandelver - Pictures from inside the goblin cave

Entering the goblin cave, searching for Gundren Rockseeker and Sildar.
As you can see the ''roof'' of the cave was made from paper. So as we ventures further in our DM would rip more off to reveal what we could see. Genius!
Watch out for sneaky goblins on bridges.
