New and Old dungeon tiles - that I have made.

Hoard of the Dragon Queen dungeon - D&D 5th Edition.

For anyone who has been reading this blog for a while now, you will know that I originally set up this blog to chronicle the Arc of the Mad Mage dungeon that I ran for my friends.

As well as detailing the dungeon that I ran I also posted many photos of the 3D dungeon tiles that I built, well despite saying I would never do that again - I have.

Last week I took delivery of some new tiles and I have now 95% completed the building and painting work needed. I still have a few small pieces to paint but here are some photos of what has been done so far.


These kits were bought from eBay, they come in single blocks so you have to virtually build every room and wall from scratch. (See previous blog post)

I tried to design these modular room pieces so that they could be made to build large and small rooms. If you look closely in this picture you can see some of the fine detail that I added such as the skulls, tree roots and lots of flock.

The tile in the top right corner has a silver sconce on the wall, I am in the process of adding flames to these made from milliput. I'll add some new pictures once they are done.

If you look closely you can see that I have built two stair cases both of which have giant skulls as end pieces.
Very cool I think and also very useful.

This large room was actually built by me in Feb 2014, but I have re-painted it and also added new flock and two sconces. I have also removed part of the wall on the left.

Shown above are some pictures of the new bits that I have built and painted. You can see various room pieces plus doors, walls, rocky outcroppings and stalagmites.

Final picture for today. These are the rooms and corridors that I built for the Arc of the Mad Mage dungeon, I have re-painted all of these and added some new detail.

Lost Mines of Phandelver - The End.

And so the final chapter in our first group foray into the world of D&D 5th Edition has come to an end, and what an end it was.

*****SPOILER ALERT*****.
There were Hobgoblins, Undead, Ankhegs, more Undead, Giant Mushrooms that stank and the final fight with Black Spider.
Here are some pictures of the epic dungeon that we played on Saturday, as you can see from the pictures our DM created a huge set piece dungeon from nothing more that a tonne of polystyrene, paint, sweat and love and what can I say apart from that it was amazing.
We started gaming at around 11am GMT on Saturday and we finally finished the dungeon 16 hours later on a early Sunday morning. 
Enjoy the pictures.
And so we begin, everything looks nice and tidy at this point of the day. Needless to say by the end of the dungeon and 16 hours later there were a lot more cups of coffee, food wrappers and tired gamers strewn about the place.

As you can see the dungeon was made from a huge SLAB of polystyrene which was then crafted,…

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 - 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.
The village of Thunder Tree
The ruins of Thunder Tree
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.
