More stuff that I have painted

Is painting 28 mm models for 2 days straight bad for you.....?

Image result for sore eyes 
This is what my eyes looked like after testing the above question.

For the last two weeks I have been left to my own devices, this basically means that due to my real world work commitments I have been home alone without my family. Why you ask, well whilst I earn an "honest" crust in the big smoke of London my family has been away on holiday in the South of France for TWO weeks.

Now despite my Mrs and the kids being away this hasn't meant I have also had a relaxing time, I still have to get up at 5:30 am every day to then face a 2 hour journey from my home to the office, however I did have a grand weekend of playing D&D on TWO consecutive days with my buddies at the Gaming Palace of Divine justice.......

And as well as the fun dice rolling I also had the opportunity to catch up on some much needed painting, this is something I don't get to do that often and I have also made a pledge to not buy any more 28 mm models until I have painted the huge backlog of existing models that I have.

So to this end I spent the better part of TWO days painting a whole host of models, enjoy the pictures.

Giant purple maggots.

Dancing bear, not painted for any particular reason except I thought it was a nice model

Grave robber or grave digger, you choose
Great big rocky thing, it sort of looks like a three fingered hand I though.
I bought this at a gaming/tabletop convention in London this year called Salute.

Same as above,

Giant wooden signal flare, could be used for a village under threat or just as a big pile of wood.
Lots of uses for this.

Bloody big Orc added to show scale

Fire Giant.
Not 100% finished, I still need to add the fine detail and re-base him.
Lovely big beard.....

Market or bazaar street seller, the tent and items in the background weren't painted by myself.
Orc barbarian.
Painted for a mate of mine who wants to play one of these brutes in D&D.
Very cool model and a joy to paint.
Dead bodies, I bought these on eBay but they came painted in fairly basic colours and with no bases.
So I have dipped them and added some nice new bases.
Again this aren't 100% finished as they need to be matte varnished and some fine detail adding.

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.
