The Cinder King is coming

The Cinder King is coming. A strange and new threat had arisen in the West, a powerful necromancer calling himself ‘The Cinder King’ vowed to cover the whole of the land in fire and death, ashes and bone, and rule over this undying desolation. Other usurpers, invaders, and malignant entities had threatened the peace of […]

Modular Dungeon finished

Marking this project as complete. Finally. What started as a fit of inspiration after finding a bunch of left over faux-stone vinyl tiles during a basement clean up is now a fairly well-accessorized modular dungeon, complete with dank, dark halls, cramped junctions, a King’s Crypt, a Library, a Dwarf Tomb, a Treasure Room, and a […]

Accessorizing the Dungeon

UPDATED 28 MARCH : IMAGES OF END-CAPS/DOORS AT BOTTOM OF POST Some of you might recall my on-the-cheap modular dungeon made from faux stone vinyl tiles, insulation foam, craft paint, and a weekend’s worth of elbow grease.

Song of Ice and Fire miniatures

Always on the look out for good miniatures, a recent thread over at Lead Adventure Forum brought CMON’s new Song of Ice and Fire figs to my attention. (ooooh Shiny!) Now I’m not GRRM/GoT fan but the paint jobs were very nice, so I wandered over to eBay where I promptly picked up a box […]

Dungeon Party and New Characters

DUNGEON PARTY I have this hobby tic, this obsession with skirmish squads, adventuring parties, salvage crews, cyberpunk gangs, shadow-ops teams… I get a kick out of hunting down miniatures, matching aesthetics, regardless of manufacturer, to come up with a cool troop for whatever scenario had fired my imagination.
