Tyranny of Dragons: Hoard of the Dragon Queen

Recommended Posts

Daton will offer daggers and slings to the children.

 

"I know it's scary, but if we're jumped again I want you to be as ready to defend yourself as you can be... Be careful with those knives, they can be very sharp. Do you think you can handle it?"

 

Daton will then extend his handaxe to Cuth.

 

"Think you're in good enough condition to handle this if it comes down to it?"

 

He will also stash one of the daggers on his belt, and address the parents.

 

"We can talk as we walk, but we need to know what's happening and what we risk expecting. Tell us as much as you can, and worry not. We'll do all we can to keep you safe."

Rolen does a great job entertaining the kids, bringing a smile to their mother's face.

 

Daton then tries to get everyone back on task, doling out the weapons.

 

Cuth waves you off. "Sir, I'm not going to be able to use that one. If you please, I'll just carry my littlest one. He'd slow us down too much if we let him walk."

 

(OOC - the kids are too small and young to really help with the fighting They'll take the weapons and use them in case of the unthinkable).

Linan tells you the quickest way to the Keep is the street. It heads east, then branches to the side street to the Keep.

 

"We have seen kobolds, humans, giant lizards and we think there is a dragon up one the air."

 

At the thought of that, she shudders.

 

She continues. "The town is in chaos. Fires are burning everywhere. I fear the way to the Keep may be blocked soon."

 

(OOC I'm going to post some maps as soon as I can).

"Want me to scout out ahead?"

 

If there is a keep, and the city is under attack, is the keep entrance blockaded?

The top map shows Greenest among the cities of the Sword Coast.

 

The second is a map of Greenest. The important area is #1, which is the Keep.

 

Other points of note are a mill, stream, and temple to Chauntea, which those of you who had ties to Greenest will know about, and where they are.

I will retrieve my bolt from the kobold if I can. Wipe it & my axe off & place the bolt back into it's case. Shouldering my crossbow. I grab my shield & my axe & ask "Point the way to the keep, we'll get yah there!"

 

Being a merc, Klaus really had no home other then the one in the Mtn (insert name) that was overrun by goblins & other foul beasts. He lost his wife & 2 kids in that raid, he wasn't going to lose this family.

 

I will take lead but will stay near the family.

"Aye. I agree" We should surround the family if we can & just make our way there the fastest way possible"

You make your way along the road (fastest). You move about 15 minutes when you are spotted by a a group of pillagers: 3 kobolds come to harass you from behind, and 4 human mercenary types block your way from the front.

 

The humans don't seem to be wearing a cohesive uniform, just whatever clothes and bits of armor they own. They are all wearing black arm bands.

 

One steps forward. "Well well, lookie what we'd got here boys! Some do-gooders trying to act like heroes. Let's show'em what we do to interlopers. I got dibs on that sweet woman..."

He cracks a disgusting smile, liking his lips and barking at Linan.

 

(OOC roll initiative. It is getting darker. Due to the twilight and fires, there is at least dim light. -5 perception checks related to vision (except Darkvision within range). The road here is 20 feet wide. The mercenary speaker is 20 feet away, his chums are 30 feet away. The kobolds are in the other direction, 30 feet away. Scattered trees line the road, big enough to give half cover. Where there is no tree, there are light bushes/hedges here and there which can lightly obscure someone).

Do I recognize the black arm bands as anything? (It's my background thing)

The arm bands, not specific enough yet.

Don't worry, that part of your background will have a chance to shine, I guarantee!

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      I am not above blatant copying if it will push my skills and teach me something.
      @Wren Your version of this was The Definitive version of this figure, in my mind.
      Her post is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72285-1596-joy-winter-fairy/&tab=comments#comment-1483083
      There have also been some other lovely versions of Joy.
       
      I am a character in a Reign of Winter campaign for Pathfinder.  The DM gave me a list of monsters we will fight, and a fairy type fey is in there, so I figured it would be a great excuse to paint my Joy.
       
      I haven't tried blue skin before.  That was the reason I wanted to copy Wren's version.
      Here are some pics.

       
      This is the first time I've used my iPhone for pics.  It does a good job getting close, but the white balance seems a little yellow.
       

       
      Someone had asked Wren about Reaper sparkle paints.
      I went ahead and tried some Sparkling Snow in the wing membranes, but it didn't show enough in hand.
      So, I glazed the wing membranes and her cheeks and her base with a very thin layer of Vallejo Model Color Metal Medium.
      You can't see it well in the pictures, but it is a nice effect in hand.
       

       
      I was least happy with the base.  I tried to sculpt snow overhanging her base with green stuff.  Just not the effect my mind's eye was seeking.
      I am most happy with her eyes and face.  I tried to glaze some pink and purple and sparkle into her face to warm it up and give her some pixie dust effect.
      Again, not showing up great in the photos, but I like the effect in hand.
      Her left eye I managed to get on the first try.  It really represents my best luck with an eye.  The Iris is a mix of Spectral Glow and Moth Green.  I remembered Wren's Joy having greenish eyes, but thought they looked otherwise human, so I painted these that way.  Then I reviewed Wren's Joy, and her eyes looked otherworldly.  
      You can see, I had a "Dicken's" of a time trying to get the right eye to match the left.  I never could, but after 10 tries, this is the best I could do.
      At arm's length, it looks fine.
       
      For anyone interested, paint recipes are spoilered here:
       
      Overall, I'm very pleased with it.
      I hope I did the original inspiration justice.

      A tall hunchbacked moss green creature dash towards you, its long arms stretched out, its sharpened claw hands whipping the air as it tries to get a grip at you. This frightening vision chills your blood. In a few steps, he's on you and you see in its dull, sunken black eyes, that its ugliness has no pair but its ravenous appetite...
      For all those of you who likes Old school model. Wizards of the Coast D&D 40052, Troll sculpted by Chaz Elliott.

      Some more 3D prints for my recent Dungeons & Dragons games.

      First is my fiance's Half-Elf Warlock, designed by HeroForge and printed on my Ender-3.


       
       
      Next, a Goliath Barbarian in the same game, the file was designed by the talented Miguel Zavala/DM Workshop.




      Last is the infamous Strahd von Zarovich, printed for our recently finished "Curse of Strahd" campaign.  This design was also by Miguel Zavala.
