Fore Warned is Four Armed

Woah, that’s a lot of hits my One Page Dungeon post generated this week. Hello to all you Campaignwiki people. It looks like this blog is slowly morphing from a miniature wargame blog into an old-school D&D blog.  Even to the point that my post titles directly tie in...

Sprucing Up the Old Dungeon

The thing about dungeon furniture is that every piece you put down reduces the playing space by one space. So what you’re really after is the suggestion of furnishings; at the table your imagination takes over and fills in all the gaps. At least that’s my story for why...

Rules of the Road

Now that we’re finally getting some lead on the table, it’s time to decide on a ruleset.  I’ve been pumping the good guys over at the Lead Adventure Forums for advice and they’ve pointed me to a lot of nice little free rulesets available on the web.  But I’m having...

A Very Tiny Arbor Day

How’s this for a slick little tree? This creepy old tree was liberated from my son’s Lego box. It started out life as a piece from a Lego knock off brand. It came in a giant orc head with a bunch of not-Lego orcs. It’s the perfect size for...

Three Flavors of Orcs

There’s nothing too spectacular about these orcs.  They’ve got green skins just in case the Warmaster bug ever bites and a fire emblem that fits just about anywhere.  This latest load brings the orc population of my figure case up to a whopping 18,  including three spear-orcs, four bow-orcs...

If Ever A Wonderful Wiz There Was…

These wizards I’ve are them because, because, because, because, because…because of the wonderful paint job I does. TFAN45 The guy on the right started out his life as a warrior monk, but his spear broke off, so he’s now a wizard with a short staff. TSAM10...

Irregular Minis, Now With Added Paint

This first batch was ordered to add a few heavily armored figures to the player character options, but they just didn’t have enough personality for it.  Instead I painted them as the local town guard NPCs.  That would be a black tower on a golden field on the shields....

Bonus Post! A One Page Adventure

UPDATED MARCH 29 – SEE BELOW While trolling the seas of the internet for a fish of rules worthy enough to grace my table, I’ve been drifting in and out of the role-playing game blog-community.  Today I discovered a little thing called the One Page Dungeon contest. “I can...

An Irregular Order

First order of Irregular Miniatures came in today, and they look like a lot of fun.  These unpainted lead shots are for other people’s reference.  One quirky thing about collecting 10mm figures is that very few manufacturers have their whole line photographed and available on their websites.  Personally, that...

Demi-Humans, Part the First

This is the last of the Copplestone Heroes pack TM10.  Each guy has so much character, they really were a joy to paint.  Here are two different dwarf styles – one rugged outdoor type and a more urban armored stunty.  The dwarf in blue is now the only heavily...
