Marthrangul Great Dragon, Take Two

I had such a great time painting Marthrangul, Great Dragon as a White Dragon that I decided to order a second copy and paint it again as another type of dragon. I considered Red or Black but finally settled on Green. Green Dragons are not one of my favorite types but they are the classic. I decided…

Chosen of Sokar, Nefsokar Sergeant

You may have noticed a new painted miniature in the last Celestial Winter Session Three summary. I hadn’t quite finished this mischievous villain in time for the session so I fielded him incomplete…and then it took forever to actually finish him up. But here he is. I painted the flesh amethyst to make the miniature stand out…

Marthrangul, Great Dragon

I purchased the Marthrangul Great Dragon miniature to enter in Michael Mordor’s May painting contest. Unfortunately May ended up being a terrible month on the work front – surprise resignation left me working some evenings & weekends – and I didn’t finish it in time for the contest… Oh well! I like entering these contests…

Celestial Winter – Session Three

Passing through the portal the group finds themselves somewhere dark and cold. Only a few distant stars tinkle weakly overhead. A large sway of the sky is completely dark, empty of even faint celestial light. Spazzlethrop lights his lantern illuminating a rocky debris field. The air is cold and dry, there’s no sign of water,…

Celestial Winter – Session Two

The second sitting was a bit rough as we were down three of five players. This left Caldus, Bridgette, and Edward on autopilot. The sitting began with the citizens of Lonepine related to the party giving them items to help them on their journey – cookies of cure light wounds, magical fire arrows, potions, and so…

Cave Trolls

I quickly painted these fellows for use in the next sitting of my Celestial Winter  campaign but I can see them getting used often in future sittings. I’m happy with how the blend of colors turned out on their skin. The base coat was a dark beige which I dry brushed over with “marsh” green. The heavy…

Vordakai, Cyclops Lich

I had been on the look out for a miniature to serve as a specific antagonist for my Celestial Winter campaign and I decided that Vordakai Cyclops Lich more than fit the bill. Now that I can paint my own miniatures I’m trying to field foes that are visually unnerving rather than just straight out threatening. I think…

Aglanda, Herald Of Razmir

I had started painting Aglanda Herald Of Razmir a couple of weeks ago but then got caught up in other projects. I picked it back up last night and went in another direction.  I’m going to use as an specific NPC in my Celestial Winter campaign. Not sure that this unusual coloring will lend the mini to…

Klaus Copperthumb, Dwarf Rogue

This time I converted the Klaus Copperthumb Dwarf Rogue miniature from Reaper Bones to hold a staff instead of a knife. I plan it to use as an NPC in the next Celestial Winter session but I can see it being fielded down the road as a caster or a rogue with high Use Magic Device. The color…

Shadow Demons

I was pleased with how the Shadow Hounds turned out that I decided to try my hand out on the Shadow Demon. The Shadow Demon is made from the same translucent material but is a very different sculpt. I picked up some color shift paint this week so I eagerly dry brushed it over the…
