New models that I have painted.

New stuff that I have painted.


Here are some new pictures of models that I have painted for my collection of D&D miniatures.

FROST GIANT.
This is from the Whizz Kids range of models that are being made for WoTC.
I repainted the shield and also added new colour to his beard, clothes, armour and skin.


In this picture you can see that I added a snow flock to the base.
It's not finished yet as I am adding some green flock as well, but this hasn't arrived in the post yet.



Aspect of TIAMAT.
I found this model on eBay, I think its a Japanese kids toy and it came in several parts plus it was 
painted bright blue and gold.

So I had to base paint it in grey and add new wings.

I also removed one of the heads, as it came with 6 and not 5.


Mostly completed model, base painted and I have attached the heads now.
The model didn't quite fit together after I repainted it, so I have to use milliput to fill in the large gaps
between the body and heads.


Side view on the partially painted white Dragon head, you can see the large white area here which is the milliput I had to use to secure the heads in place and also fill in the gaps on the model.


Another side view showing the green and black head.
Again the model isn't finished yet, I only have the base colours on and the wings haven't been attached yet.


Slightly closer view of the side on view of the model.
Plenty of work left to do.
The completed model appears on this Blog under my new Monstrous Almanac page.
Have a look and let me know what you think.

In this picture you can see that I have pinned the new wings in the place and then added more milliput to the model to hide the holes and tidy up the new wings

I had to pin the wings with a few pieces of wire as the model is plastic but they are made from metal, so I needed the extra strength that pinning provides.

Almost completed model, at this point I still needed to repaint parts of this beast and also add some more fine detail. I added a regular 28mm model to show the size of the completed miniature.

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.
