Cinder King: Raid at the Barak Mines

Our heroes’ successes, moderate though they were, allowed the remnants of the Empires’ Army to gather and march north to the Long Road. This puts Sunstrider Camp as well as the Barrak Mines in reach. The first is a source of new recruits for the much reduced regiments. The second, the only known supply of […]

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.

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.

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 […]

SoBH Terrain and Baddies

So the reason posts have been so sparse lately is I plan on entering this year’s Last Painter Standing contest over at the Lead Adventure Forum. Trick is, none of the figs can have been shown on the internet prior to entering, and my latest brushwork has mostly been focused on entries.¬† I don’t harbor […]
