  1. Hi there everyone! Oakydeer here, and I'm a very very new to the world of tabletop RPGS. I'd always heard of the magical game dungeons and dragons but was always intimidated by it and didn't know when or how to start. But a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and gather my friends for our first DnD session, with me as the DM. And... we all became obsessed. So now, here I am, completelly engrossed in the world of tabletop RPGs and eager to start sculpting and painting my own figures! I'm open to any advice from any of you wonderful veterans regarding anything, be it painting and sculpting, to game tips, to a simple friendly hello. Let's be friends! :>
  2. My New London group that Dad and I play with was today, but dad couldn't come because of work. We found the tiefling we were looking for and she gave us a ring that gave the wearer resistance to ice magic, and because I was the only warlock in the party I got 7 scrolls and 3 spellbooks! We went into the white dragon's cave to kill it, and since what happed next was all my plan I wore the ring. I used hex to give the dragon disadvantage on charisma saving throws, but the DM said that the dragon's stats said if it was hit with hex it would get disadvantage on ALL saving throws. I cast polymorph and suceeded but the dragon had 3 uses of legendary saving! I had my party members burn spells with saving throws until it used the other 2 legendary savings, then used polymorph on it again, and turned it into a fish! We dropped it down a bottomless chasm, but the top of it's so small when the dragon morphs back it won't be able to get out. The DM gave everyone in our party a magic item, but chose them by randomly rolling from 1-100, and ended up getting a 100! Because the whole thing was my plan, I was the one who got to keep the Wings of Flying! We each got 140g, 200s, and 4 precious stones worth 800g each. We also got up to level 9, so I'm gaining a spell, my slots are changing to level 5, and I'm getting another eldrich invocation! I can't wait to tell my dad when he gets home from work tonight. I'm really proud that I've proved I can game on my own and still make awsome decisions. Vanquishing a dragon is a much better achievement than getting your entire party killed. And to think I almost didn't go today because mom was worried about leaving my sisters home alone.
  3. Did some painting this weekend and I was pleasently surprised that I managed to finish my latest purchases, All are speedpaints with a heavy dose of Army Painters Strong Tone wash to finish them. A few gnolls (Gnolls, Gnoll Slaver and Gnoll Warriors) Two grimlocks Two kobold guards Three kuo-toas (one archpriest and two regular) Two lizardman fighters One roper. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
  4. Happy Labor Day weekend folks! Last week I completed Brom the Wanderer from Scale 75 for a client. He had a specific look he wanted, and even had some photos of a similar paint job. We settled on price and time alloted to this project, and here he is! The rocks are cork and greenstuff, with some sand and small stones in between. The lava was created using SceneARama realistic water. All mounted on a wooden base. Hope you like him. Thanks for looking!
  5. This is another batch for Cal's Pathfinder game. I've wanted to paint them up for some time, so 2 birds 1 stone on this one! It was fun painting the elder male as it was based on Robert Cruse (AKA Jester), one of Reaper's finest painters, and sculpted by the wonderful Sandra Garrity. I believe she did the other 2 as well. Enjoy!
  6. Here is Eskin, painted up to represent my character in Wandering Through the Forgotten Realms, Jared, a THIEF. The lighting isn't fantastic. As always, C & C welcome!
  7. I was on a roll so I managed to finish another one. Nothing fancy, brown/grey + quickshade for the hull and some more attention directed to the eye and teeth. Easy paintjob with a pleasing result :) And the Beholder Lich as a bonus (I finished this two weeks ago)!
  8. I managed to finish 2 miniatures this week to basic table top (for me) standard. Both are intended to do duties in my DnD games. First up is Razmir, one of the villains from the Hoard of the Dragon Queen module for 5E that I'm running at the FLGS (so good to have one again). She is a resin model produced by Gale Force Nine. Second up is the Bones Tomb Guard, ready for use as an advanced mummy when needed. :) The mummy is on a Back-2-Base-ix dungeon base and Razmir's base comes with her.
  9. I'm kicking off my 5e game tomorrow night *joy!* set in my own home brew world. Starting in a city tavern (city is based on attack on Titan city) and then leading into the first "dungeon" of the lost minis of phandelver. I've asked them nicely for the first couple of session if they could bite my adventure hooks and once we have a firm grasp on the rules it will be a free for all in the city (and beyond) I've got a bunch of stuff prepped like 5 different weapon brands and a few things like that. Is there any last minute tips you would recommend me prepping or anything? I have run 3 campaigns (all 4e) and I'm pretty good off the cuff but I want this one to truly be something special (as I like the system a lot and want my players to be *wowed*)
  10. Just saw that Warner Brothers is producing a new DnD movie. http://movies.yahoo.com/news/warner-bros-acquires-rights-dungeons-dragons-movie-224003769.html So anyone want to give odds on this one being a commercial success?
  11. Hi all, Trying to get my current backlog I brought with me to NY painted down so that I am ready for the Bones stuff incoming sometime in June I expect. First up Barrow Wights! Manufacturer: Games-Workshop System: Lord of the Rings Scale: 25mm
  12. I want to pledge another kickstarter but im not sure which one.. I spent around $300 on reapers and now I want to spend around 50 clams incl shipping to canada (could possibly go to $75) on a few more legit minis, They have to be for dnd campaigns so fantasy only (no guns) and I would like them to arrive before reapers in march, I liked the look of the dwarfs http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/607885648/dwarf-gladiators-finely-sculpted-28mm-resin-miniat?ref=live any suggestions?
  13. Most players will usually amass entertaining stories and anecdotes about their characters, events that happen in game, etc... and I'm always interested in hearing new ones! If you have anything to share or add, please add a post below. --- One of my most memorable characters was a gnome illusionist. He was an odd gnome, though; being a touch shorter than average, and with a nose actually in proportion to his face, many people often confused him for a halfling. He had 12 names and insisted on using them every time he introduced himself, and I gave him a high-pitched, obnoxious voice. Most of the party and the DM wanted to kill him, but no one ever succeeded. In 2nd edition, gnomes had a 20% chance for a magic item to not work for them. Well, I wanted my gnome to have been touched by his deity, a deity of magic, and so he had a surplus of magical energy stored within him. I talked to the DM, and actually convinced him to alter the 20% chance a bit - instead of not working, there was a 20% chance that his natural magic would seep into the item, causing it to explode! I gave him a very high constitution to make sure he could live through that, which was good because that 20% chance seemed to come up 50% of the time. It only happened the first time he touched an item, though; after the first time, he could use it normally. My first adventure with him was a blast. I remember walking into a room, and after the party had cleared it of its inhabitants, we started searching. I noticed an interesting shield on the wall, and was curious about what was behind it. I started to reach out for it, started worrying about traps, but figured, eh, what the heck. I screwed my eyes shut, turned my head to the side, and grabbed an edge of the shield. When nothing happened, I let out a breath I had been holding, reached up with my other hand, grabbed the shield and set it on the ground. That's when I realized that my hands were stuck! I tried pulling them away, but they were stuck tight. So, seeking additional leverage, I put my foot on the shield and gave it a good push, trying to get my hands free. No such luck, and now my foot was stuck as well. The groups fighter sighed, picked me up by my shirt, and started carrying me around. I was basically the handle for his new shield. There was a random encounter in the dungeon, and when I said "Hi!" the local encounter was a bit freaked out by the talking shield. Various minor events followed, and we ended up camping for the night. After the party had gone to sleep, I decided that I was bored with being a shield. I slipped off my gloves and my boot, dragged the shield out using the edge of my boot, then went back to my tent and fell asleep. The party was quite irritated in the morning
