D&D Videos/Podcasts Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I recently discovered that I really liked listening to D&D games being played while painting.  I watched/listened to a few videos with Matt Mercer DMing some really cool games. 


What podcasts/videos do you all like to watch/listen to?

I don't so much watch Let's Play style roleplaying videos; I've tried but they seem to mostly put me to sleep. But I do quite like more advice-style series. No links because I don't know who is selling things (sorry).

  • Ken and Robin Talk About Stuff
  • Geek & Sundry's Game Master Tips (Mercer to start, then Satine Phoenix. Phoenix took me a bit to get used to and still occasionally doesn't really click , but there's some pretty good stuff there.)
  • Matthew Colville (Some brilliant stuff; some pretty good stuff, and some stuff that I disagree with pretty strongly but that probably work really well for people with other styles.)
  • How to be a Great Gamemaster
  • Improvised Radio Theatre - with Dice

They're all reasonably well produced for what they are and the presenters are pretty easy to listen to. Sometimes really interesting and sometimes useful only because they help me to clarify why I think they're wrong, wrong, wrong^_^

For me it's Stoner/doom Metal or in another vein, I like to listen to anything about; Dark Matter, Dark Gravity, Ghost Particles, Quantum Physics and Abstract Theory in general, or H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, and Robert E. Howard ebook novels.

I am going to be listening to Critical Roll for a long time to come. Many of the DM ones are too short. If I have to fiddle with controls more than once an hour, I am out.


When I kind of feel odd and want some steampunk in my life, I go back to the Malifaux podcasts “The Breachside Broadcast”... be warned, there’s immortality in them thar hills!


Sometimes, though, I end up in space. I’ve spent some time with Kat Kuhl and the Campaign podcast using the Edge of Empire (FFG Star Wars Roleplay system). Fair warning, they can be overly creative at points and end up in weird messes.


And recently, I discovered that with my Amazon Prime, I can add a lot of albums to my Music and create some extensive music selections... say all the soundtracks for Game of Thrones. This worked really well as a background while we were playing games. Easy to add in new at no additional cost... also works great for painting.

You guys are focusing way too much on the good games.


Authors and Dragons - a group of comedic fantasy authors playing in a Pathfinder game run by another comedic fantasy author....


A bad Pathfinder game! (They have a lot of fun.)


The Auld Grump - half the party was almost killed by a well... not even an evil well....

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple more demons for you today.  This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D.  These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

      More Below the Spoiler:
      Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.

      If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.

      Also, how do you paint insect wings?  They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?

      Continuing my posting spree. This beholder is the fist model I have printed and painted. I went for a very simple,  classic look, and I was really pleased with the bright purples. I have been enjoying MZ's catalog, but man, printing stuff is a lot of work.
      I really enjoy painting eyes, so this subject was a treat.The Spectator is now on my shortlist to paint thanks to the positive experience I had with the dodgeball of doom.

      Every fiendish army needs tiny minions to throw through the meat grinders.  Today I've got some assorted imps and quasits (the demonic counterpart to imps for you non-D&D folk).
      First up,
      The Quasits

      These fun little guys are the grunts of the demonic legions.  The front two are Quasits from the Nolzur's Unpainted set "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719.  The back three are Reaper Bones Hordlings (77335).

      And up next,
      The Imps

      These three imps are all Nolzur's from "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719 and "Familiars" #WZK72563

      Was definitely going cross-eyed after painting these tiny guys.
      What's the smallest mini you've ever painted? (Feel free to share pictures)
