  1. This dragon from the board game Dragonstrike has his charm in its awkward pose with its left arm raised and its tail passing between its legs and laid over its left foot. Too bad he's so fudgesicle-ing fragile! It's supposed to have one more horn closer to the nose, that was broken before I even got the piece (indeed it was broken in the pic the person I bought it from had). One of the wings is a separate piece that pegs in. The pegs broke in storage, I had to shave that all off and rely on glue alone. I painted him purple because I asked for color ideas with my D&D group and the one
  2. "Beauregard" from Zombicide Black Plague, obviously just Michael Palin as Sir Galahad from Monty Python and the Holy Grail... Not painted in the slightest to resemble Michael Palin OR Sir Galahad, because gaming sessions can already get derailed enough by Monty Python and the Holy Grail quotes without dropping miniatures deliberately looking like the characters of the movie on the table. And a pig-faced orc converted from a Boar Warrior from Yu-Gi-Oh Heroclix. Just snipped off the little tail on the back and then painted him up. The things on his helmet were meant
  3. Got another pair of cheapo dragons of aliexpress, from the same assortment as my last two from last year (off Wish that time, thankfully these were a tad cheaper). Randomized again, so this one had a sparkly blue King Ghidorah-ish one, and an orange bipedal type with three short horn and a large rear crest not unlike those of a triceratops or other ceratopsid, plus a flat scorpion's stinger. I like em. Though orangey's wings were attached on backwards and instead of being glued the parts almost seem FUSED so that wasn't a fun task cutting out to put in the proper position.
  4. Lately I only seem to complete part of what I set out to make. Seems like I start some and hit a creative roadblock, especially the ones that were my primary goal. Still, I get my "side-projects" done, and that's important too. One of these was primed so long ago and only finally painted this weekend. The other was primed a few weeks ago and just kinda sat there as I dealt with some frustrations (THAT GODDAMN DEEP CUTS ELF ARG) and I ended up grabbing it on a whim today while working on the others. First up, a classic TSR Firbolg. From that wonderful era of Firbolgs, from th
  5. Executioner from Marvel Comics, another cheaply acquired mini ideal for conversion to a fantasy character. There were a few things I considered first, like just an ordinary greek hero in a leather cuirass, or a chaotic barbarian to go with my converted Anval Thricedamned and that Battlemasters chaos archer... But in the end, that hair only left me with one option. An homage to professional wrestler Road Warrior Hawk. I couldn't exactly spike up his cuirass thanks to his very dynamic pose, but I think it still works well, the head is pretty accurate and the studded
  6. As far as the PHB is concerned, proficiency with the tool lets you add the proficiency modifier to an ability check if you do it with the tool you're proficient with. WOTC kind of realized how much of a drawback that was, especially as applied to things like thieves tools, because taking thieves tools without sleight of hand (for example) is far more limiting than vice versa. Xanathar's Guide To Everything offers up the alternative that if you're proficient in both a skill and a tool for a check, you get advantage on the roll.
  7. A regular car is hardly loud though. This is more like a really loud muscle car careening through. You'd hear that over more noise.
  8. I just went over a copy of the D&D Next playtest rules from 2013 and the loud noise was there too, just at a lower range.
  9. Yes. Yes it does. It certainly has not been added in later on. 5E is only a "living document" as far as errata corrections go, and Knock is not among them. https://media.wizards.com/2018/dnd/downloads/PH-Errata.pdf It's always been the last line of text in the spell description: "When you cast the spell, a loud knock, audible from as far away as 300 feet, emanates from the target object." I have one of the earliest printings of the book and that line was always there.
  10. I got a random bunch of Zombicide Black Plague minis a while back and most of those are pretty blatantly based on various characters of medieval and fantasy films and TV and a bunch of the ones I got were Monty Python And The Holy Grail knights, and I got two of Sir Galahad, so while I'm undecided if I should paint them as presented in the movie or just make my own stuff with em, since I got two Galahads I can already just paint one as I please.
  11. Silence is in a 20-radius sphere and Knock has a 60-foot range.
  12. I mean... I am unfathomably clumsy so most miniatures I paint are finished out of spite... this is just the first that was all spite from start to finish. I COULD have painted up one of my two Michael Palins and a teeny dwarf and maybe an elegant wizard that I'd primed last weekend but instead I hate-painted this.
  13. Nope, that is totes mcboats a thing you can do in 5th Edition, as Silence is a concentration spell but Knock is an instantaneous spell.
  14. Knock in 5E has always had an accompanying incredibly loud knock that's audible as far as 300 feet away. Probably because 5E spellcasters have so many more spell slots so having what amounts as instant-success lockpicks in abundance needs a drawback to go with it.
  15. The mini that in conjunction with some gaming frustration stopped me from doing all 13 minis I planned last weekend. I hate it so much because everything is in the way of each other. The absolute clowns at Wizkids obviously just posed their usual library of 3D renders and were like "good enough, sell it!" without considering the difficulties that could arise from painting it. Probably why when trying to look up other people's attempts at painting it in Google Image Search, I found absolutely zilch and thus just based it on Wizkids' "painted sample" (IE their cgi render but COLORIZED).
