... is how I start each session of my Curse of Strahd campaign, before recounting my player's disastrous choices and whatever wicked thing I threw at them last time as a result.
Although we play our game online and the campaign is drawing to a close, I decided to immortalise these characters in miniature form. I was planning to paint a Strahd for them to fight, but then, uhhh, while I was cutting the figure from the sprue, its head flew into the office and hasn't been seen since.
Of course, I should have known, he's a vampire, he can change shape and move through walls. I'll never find him.
But will this party be able to defeat him in our next session? Fingers crossed!
First off - the party's secretive and somewhat paranoid rogue who goes by "Hope". Out of a traumatic fear of magic users, she dislikes being healed and shaves her head to avoid anyone scrying on her. I decided to pick Serena, Dreadmere Rogue (03873) to represent her, opting for a cloak rather than a bald head.
Then, the party's warlock. Ira was an aspiring actor and playwright who made an arrangement with a local lawyer to benefit his career and learn a little bit of a magic. A whirlwind romance turned into a longterm relationship, but when his patron actually proposed to get married, Ira ran off on an adventure. Commitment issues, you know? But at least he has a magical book that allows him to communicate his regrets and learn new spells from his fiendish boyfriend...
I struggled a bit to find a figure that matched the "Victorian dandy" aesthetic. No staffs or wands, but no guns or playing cards either. I was in the dark a bit, so I decided to modify Drake Whiteraven (03599), using the book that comes with Khalib, Runelord Apprentice (60098), and fashioning a dagger out of bits. Not the best 'kitbash', but it does the job.
The party's druid is Mikal - a half-elf and the oldest member of the group. Though he started off as a loner and a hermit tending to nature, when strange creatures began emerging from sudden mist banks, he had to go take a closer look. Perhaps the real Curse of Strahd was the friends he made along the way.
This figure is Vodelis Winterhand (04009), who I believe was a freebie sometimes last year. I modified the staff to be a spear (a magical item found in Barovia!)
Finally, the party's cleric - Petrus. Many things in Barovia would challenge a man's faith, but Petrus has come out of it stronger and even more pious than before.
This is not a Reaper figure, but a sculpt from Mierce Miniatures. The scale on this one was much finer and the figure itself was obviously shorter, sculpted with more realistic proportions. I decided to place him on a rock to make him appear taller, but of course, that only made him look like he was compensating for something. (He is.)

I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
