Cinder King: Skraeling’s Fork

The ride back from the mines was subdued. Our heroes had succeeded at securing a supply of Black Powder but at a hefty price. The bodies of your fallen soldiers were carefully loaded into one of the carts for proper burial back at the camp, mostly out of respect and tradition, partly because you did […]

Miniature Monday

Another Monday warband, Baddies this time. These guys never got named in our previous games and I’m fighting the urge to get alliterative right now and call them something like “Ruinwyrm’s Red Raiders” or “Cryptwail’s Crimson Company”. All Reaper, all metal, there’s a chunky, massively armored warrior with a commissar helmet on the left. Political […]

Cinder King: The Giant’s House

The Cinder King is coming. Hordes of shambling undead, slavering ghouls, gibbering cultists, and reanimated skeletons mass on the west bank of the Tigeria, waiting for the enslaved survivors of Karlsberg to finish the barges needed for the crossing. Grotesque overseers spend these pitiful lives in lavish cruelty, whipping them to a feverish pace. The […]

Cinder King: The Rochant Monastery

“The monastery. It’s on the cliff here. At the bend in the river outside Plainsworth.” General Montsigaard sat up and pointed to a spot on the map an inch above your current marked position. The Legion’s commander was pale, haggard. The stump of his left leg was swathed in bandages, missing below the knee. A […]

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 […]

Shots from a Dungeon Crawl

Two older grandsons came over last night, and finding me in the basement game room, requested a chance at Fortune and Glory. After some debate, they decided to risk The Tomb of Sagrak the Skeleton King. Selecting a Warrior, a Wizard, a Rogue and a Cleric, they made it as far as the first Treasure […]

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 […]

Reluctant Allies

More Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes gaming this week, with Matt, Derek, John, and Pat each fielding a Hero and Sidekick as they search for the Treasure of Sagra-Bayar. Each player has their own reasons for finding the treasure, but their goals align  – at least for the moment – and they must work […]

New Terrain Piece

Saw this Star of Chaos bouncing around online late one night and thought I should do something with it. So…   A scrap of 1″ insulation foam, a couple hours with an X-acto, some house paint, and voila! an Evil Dias. Mantic ghouls scrounged from my bitz box make appropriate Tormented and Damned climbing from […]
