    Warhammer's Royal Couple: Ariel & Orion

    Awesome pair!
  2. Hoard of the Dragon Queen Part I of the Tyranny of Dragons Campaign A Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Campaign by Wolfgang Baur and Steve Winter Published by Wizards of the Coast, and Kobold Press Copyright 2014 For the past several days, you have been traveling a road that winds lazily across the rolling grasslands of the Greenfields. You decided to push on in your travels to try to reach town before dusk. Sundown is approaching when you top a rise and see the town of Greenest just a few short miles away. But instead of the pleasant, welcoming town you expected, you see columns of black smoke rising from burning buildings, running figures that are little more than dots at this distance, and a dark winged shape wheeling low over the keep that rises above the center of the town. Greenest is being attacked by a dragon! Suddenly, a terrified human family consisting of a mother, father, and three young children erupt from the undergrowth onto the Greenway, about 20 feet in front of you. The man limps badly, carrying his youngest child, and trying to usher his other children away from danger. All five seem at least minimally wounded in some way. Their mother turns, and lowers the point of a broken spear back toward her pursuers, and readies her round shield. She looks determined to slow down her pursuers as much as possible to give her family a chance to survive. Just then, a group of eight kobolds stream out of the underbrush, fanning out to surround the woman. Either they don't see your group, or they think you are on their side, because they don't seem to pay you any mind. What do you want to do?

    Came out great! He’s pretty big... your next project is a bigger mini?!?

    Super idea, and fantastic paintjob!

    The Godsmouth Heresy

    Janalyth is the only one who failed the save. Janalyth is Dazed for 5 rounds. Dazed: The creature is unable to act normally. A dazed creature can take no actions, but has no penalty to AC. Janalyth would by up, but can't do anything. Greyson is up.

    The back door is locked. The small windows are smashed open, you could try to convince the inhabitants to let you in/come out with a Charisma(Persuasion) check.

    02726: Tuilin, Female Elf

    Most Vallejo Game Colors’ names are knockoffs of older Games Workshop colors, with just a slight difference. This was probably supposed to be a knockoff of Hawk Turquoise. I love the color choice on her. Well painted.

    No worries. That’s my job.

    Gatormen and Bog Trogs from Widower's Wood

    Some great work here, as always.
  12. Looks like some great old Garrity sculpts! Even then, you could still see the innate talent despite the constraints of the tools. Thanks for sharing.

    The Godsmouth Heresy

    It’s taken 18. It starts to sway rhythmically back and forth, trying to lull you into a dazed stupor. Dance of Death. Everyone give me a Will Save.

    The Godsmouth Heresy

    I double checked your char sheet, and didn’t see precise shot, so with the extra -4, that’s a miss. Sorry.

    Kord the Destroyer, BONES

    Gave the eyes a go. Walnut Brown, Linen White, Walnut Brown pupil. Getting it to here took 2 tries. The sculpt makes this technique space the eyes apart a little too much, but it’s as good as I could hope for, so going to keep it. As an aside, it looked acceptable and even good when it was just Walnut Brown, like the helm cast a deep shadow on his eyes.

    Kord the Destroyer, BONES

    I don’t often do WIP. I figured I’d start one. I’m still working toward Reign of Winter Adventure Path appropriate models. Kord has a Viking vibe. He’s been trimmed, washed, brown-liner primered. I removed the glued on piece of his wolf pelt to get at other stuff. I’ll glue it on later, then green stuff and finish painting. I’m blocking in basecoats now. Skin and furs so far.

    Kord the Destroyer, BONES

    Thank you both. Glazes/Washes done. Armor / Fur got Reaper Black Wash. Skin and Copper got GW Reikland Flesh Shade. Leather stuff got GW Agrax Earthshade. Skirt and Grass got GW Biel-Tan Green. Rock got all of the above. Next, highlighting/layering. I’ll start with the skin, which forces me to decide how to address his half-hidden beady little eyes!

    Tyranny of Dragons: Hoard of the Dragon Queen

    The way we've always played is that coup-de-grace'ing sleeping or paralyzed enemies is an evil act akin to murder. It would have alignment repercussions. That leaves most adventurers in a position of "wake them up and let them defend themselves or surrender," "tie them up," or "let them go." Tie them up adds the hassles of keeping prisoners, but it is doable. Let them go adds the uncertainty of a). are they going to come up behind you, sneak up on you, and become an adversary again? or b). are they going to go tell their superiors about the party of adventurers messing up their plans, or c). are they going to go off on their own, see the error of their ways, and give up the life of crime/banditry/etc. For the purposes of this adventure, I was opting more towards letting a sleeping dog lie, and considering them defeated by the sleep spell. If you all want to do something different, I'll let you do whatever you want and handle it however you want.

    For the group trying to burn down the back door, yes. Some are asleep, so be very, very quiet!

    Thanos from Clay Golem

    Nice concept. Well executed!

    Kord the Destroyer, BONES

    Did change the foot wraps to Uniform Brown, as you can see in prior photo. Now, the beard is based in Auburn Shadow. The rock is Stone Grey. The base grass is Christmas Wreath. Added another coat of skin tone. Basecoats are done. On to the wash/glaze step.

    Kord the Destroyer, BONES

    Good thought. I don’t have any birch pod debris. I’ll look for some...

    Kord the Destroyer, BONES

    Thanks! To continue: Decided on Bronze/Copper for the horns, crossguard/pommel, and a few assorted metal trim. Based in Tarnished Copper. That goes on thin, so what you see is 3 coats. Did the weapon handles and leather belt/straps in Uniform Brown. I want to paint the rock gray, but that leaves me trying to paint the ground as either grass or snow. Any ideas?
  24. Great figure! That’s a serious collection of swords. Can we get an encbrance check, please? Lol

    Rise of the Runelords

    You search for clues and don’t find anything else. You back out and tell the Sheriff. He seems confused and concerned. “Please use discretion and keep this to yourself. We don’t want a panic about Goblin GraveRobbers, that’s just puzzling.” Anything you want to do in town? Buy Anything? Or just go back to the Dragon?
