Miniature Showcase

This was one of my first dragons when I first started painting miniatures. So, I went with a very simple color scheme. I started off by painting the entire dragon in a bright red. This miniature is the WizKids Pathfinder Battles Gargantuan Dragon, Red model. I like looking back every now and then to see how my work and skill have progressed over time. I think it’s important to show yourself how much you’ve improved sometimes.

Epilogue: Kariss

After the events that had transpired with the Queen of Ash, Kariss worked with the Yuan-ti. She helped them establish a small village in the southern forests of Novos. Her and Gralmor spent years among the new Yuan-ti settlers and helped them build a stable society free from the strictures of their past. They no longer sacrificed to Sssseth or any other god. Many of the actually began to worship Kariss as their savior from the usurper god. 

NPC Spotlight

Urstil’s story is a long one full of tragedy and loss. It began when she was born. Not many in King’s Crest knew this but Urstil was actually a high elf, specifically one born from the Dusk Isles. The main island was her home where all the elves took their young to undergo transformation within the large sunflower that bloomed there. Novos was a hub of magical activity from they Feywild. Elves went to the center focus on that island to transform into Eladrin.

Miniature Showcase

Sometimes a miniature you get just doesn’t evoke the theme you want to portray in a campaign. This is when I usually repaint some or all of the miniature to change how they look. The differences don’t seem very different at first but they can change a lot in the scenery you present players.

Epilogue: Hepolita

Hepolita would be alive long after most of the mortals among them would live. She had a long time to think about what to do with her long life. At first she had just wanted to brawl and get drunk but now she craved the adventure that she had had with the party. She wanted to recapture that wonderful feeling of defeating a terrible monster and getting rewarded for it. After Aleera stepped down from guild leader, she took over the hall and the adjacent tavern. It was the marriage of her two loves, fighting and drinking.

NPC Spotlight

Some of the coolest people in our campaigns are the vendors we run into. We had quite a few but some of them were much more memorable. Asterisk was a vendor of magical items in the city of King’s Crest on the island of Novos. He was also a famous enchanter. His specialty was smashing enchantments together to form new, unusual enchantments. He was a controversial topic across the city and the island.

Miniature Showcase

This miniature was part of a two piece commission. The client was very specific with the look he wanted and I painted it as close as possible to the original reference. These are shots of the miniature before and after priming. I had to do multiple passes with the new white primer I got to reach some of the harder to reach areas. I do plan on adding some black to the primer at some point to make it more gray and opaque for application.

Dust to Dust

The Hand of Destiny was embroiled in a long battle among the wreckage of the Feywild. Pieces of land floated in a red void. At the center, a large, burnt black volcano spewed red lava in every direction. Pieces that were hit with the lava were instantly burnt away to ashes. Their large airship was maneuvering between a cluster of floating lands attacking targets on the grounds below. Several battalions fought on the different floating pieces. There were enemies everywhere. 

The Scourge of Chult

The Hand of Destiny spent a couple of weeks at sea on their way to Chult. The days were filled with planning and work aboard the vessel. Hepolita had the challenge of feeding the entire crew, Kariss dealt with a lot of seasickness and other ailments, and Aleera entertained each night to boost morale. Kaladrax and Gralmore conferred over routes to take and preferred landing spot. Each got to experience life at sea and were quite happy for the trip.
