A Pre-Slotta Dwarf

After last week’s foray into mapmaking and creative writing, and several weeks’ worth of Knightmare Miniatures, this week I’m going back to the basics of this blog:  an old pre-slotta Citadel dwarf thief.

Shin High Kobold

I haven’t had much time for painting this week, so I used what time I had on my smallest miniature:  an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Kobold.  I picked him up cheaply with some other odds and ends I thought might come in handy during… Continue Reading “Shin High Kobold”

Finally finished fantasy frogs

Following on from my post in the Month of Marsh, I’ve finally finished a group of six fantasy frog minis.  I’ve been working on them on and off since September.  A couple of them were a bit frustrating to paint, and there are some rough… Continue Reading “Finally finished fantasy frogs”

Easter Oldhammer

The Painting of the Fellowship

The Fellowship of the Ring

Check for Owlbears

Otherworld Owlbear

An owlbear’s screech echos through dark valleys and benighted forests, piercing the quiet night to announce the death of its prey.  Feathers cover the thick, shaggy coat of its bearlike body, and the limpid pupils of its great round eyes stare furiously from its… Continue Reading “Check for Owlbears”

There’s something deadly in the undergrowth

Shin High Map

Shin High Terror.  The very name strikes fear into the shins of men. About a year ago, three friends and I gathered in my lounge and on Skype to try a game of D&D.  This blog is the story of my quest to represent the… Continue Reading “There’s something deadly in the undergrowth”
