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…

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…

Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard

Anirion the Wood Elf Wizard is another miniature from Reaper Bones. I  painted it to use as an NPC in the next Celestial Winter session but it will definitely see use beyond that. The polyurethane has been darker than usual lately, I think that it’s starting to dry out but it’s still coming out nicely. I finished up with…

Celestial Winter – Session One

The harvest season ended only a few short weeks after it begun when a deadly shroud of pure white descended upon the rich fields of the valley. Many of the able bodied folk in the valley have struggled to salvage what can be saved of the now frozen crops and gather fuel to ward off…

Galladon, Male Wizard

This is another fun miniature from Reaper Bones. I painted it for use as an NPC in my Celestial Winter campaign but I could see it being good for any wizardly figure in future games. I was a bit apprehensive that Galladon would end up looking like Santa Claus with maroon as the primary color but fortunately…

Shadow Hounds

I needed some “special” monsters for my players to face in my Celestial Winter campaign so I ordered a set of Shadow Hounds. I have several translucent miniatures but this is the first time that I’ve painted one and it was a learning experience. There are definitely some cool effects that can be done with drybrushing…
