Conan – More! Monsters & Villains

I finally finished what I think will be the last of the villains and monsters I need for the Conan board game campaign.

Khosatral Khel – The main villain of the campaign.

Thog. I air-brushed on the base colours then finished up with a few washes. So far Thog is my most successful air-brushed figure.

Doctor Who: Cybermen / Daleks

I finished painting the rest of my Doctor Who board game minis. Now I’m ready to try a full game.

Cybermen!

Daleks!

I have a few companions on the paint table, but I’m thinking about using them for this years Advent blog posts.

 

Drazhoath The Ashen / Bull Centaur Taur’ruk

Two more leaders for my chaos dwarf force, both I’ll use in larger games. After this I have ten more fireglaives to paint, then, every chaos dwarf I have built and primed are done!

I’ve used a figure from the Moscrol range from Scibor to represent Drazhoath the Ashen. The figure went together very nicely for a resin figure.

DRAZHOATH THE ASHEN

Taur’ruk is the only figure in my force I own from the Forgeworld range. Nice detail, but did require a bit more prep as it is a resin figure. I hope it will hit the battlefield, but most lists I write would require more Bull Centaurs then I have painted. Not sure if I’ll ever get to that…

I’ve played a game of the new Age of Sigmar 2e with my Tzeentch force. The game was SUPER fun. I can’t wait to try out my Chaos Dwarf force.

Space Fleet Eldar Wraith ship

I played Space Fleet in 1991, collected all the White Dwarf articles and bought as many of the miniatures as I could afford. For the last 27 years I’ve held onto this game as I knew one day I’d return to it.

That day has come.

For the rest of the year I plan to paint up all my ships as best I can, then play games with them all next year!

I decided to start with the Eldar Wraith ships.

AD&D with the best!

Last week I played D&D, it was advanced, and I won!

I was lucky to play with one of the greatest DMs of all time; Allen Hammack, and play his tournament module: C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness. It was super fun to bust out my old Players Handbook I bought when I was in elementary and play this classic adventure.

I played a thief. I went for the treasure, while the rest dealt with the Umber Hulk.

The Monk died trying to take on a Fire Giant! I escaped with an invisibility potion.

I made it to the end rescuing the Soul Gem.

This was one of many fun games I played at North Texas RPG Con. I also played; Dungeon Crawl Classic, The One Ring & Top Secret. A spectacular weekend.

 

C2 Ghost Tower of Inverness

At the moment of this posting I’m sitting down to play AD&D: C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness, with the Author, Allen Hammack. C2 is one of my favorite AD&D modules of all time!

Here is the convention write-up.

Allen Hammack, author of the classic adventure Ghost Tower of Inverness, invites players to challenge this famous dungeon. A shadow from the past, the Ghost Tower has loomed ever larger in the mind of the great Seer of Urnst. Now he has convinced the Duke that an expedition of “volunteers” should be organized to try to find the ancient keep and recover its greatest treasure—the fabled Soul Gem. This module was originally used for the AD&D tournament at Wintercon VIII in November 1979. Bring your own miniatures for brownie points!

“Bring your own miniatures for brownie points!” You bet I did!!!!

Meet the band. The original pre-gens from the module.

As addressed by the Duke.

His gaze falls upon one of your party, a thin man with a short black beard. “Hodar,” he begins, “you dared to defy a royal order and continued to dabble in sorceries which I had forbidden to all the people of my realm.”

This figure came from my Conan board game collection.

“I should have thought that a warrior of your caliber, Lembu, would have known better than to slay a captain of the guard in a bar room fight.” A broad grin is the huge warrior’s only reply. “Never mind the eleven guardsmen you killed while resisting arrest.”

Maybe not the best figure for Lembu, but I wanted to use this figure ever since I painted it up to adventure in the Citadel of Chaos.

“Zinethar,” says the Duke, shaking his head as he addresses the next in line, a distinguished-looking man with gray hair, “your wisdom must have left you when you decided to lead that ill-fated Temple Coalition revolt these three months past.”

I painted this Reaper figure 13 years ago for a D&D game.

“And you, Discinque, your rash daring and bravado is really to be marvelled at. One has to wonder where you would be now if not for that broken cornice which caused you to fall — with the Crown Jewels in hand — on top of sergeant Norlik and his men while they were out on patrol.” The thief merely shrugs.

This game was a perfect reason to paint a new Otherworld miniature for my collection. I think this model is a perfect Discinque figure.

The Duke then turns and slowly bows to the last of your group; the tall barefoot woman. “Of all you five,” declares the Duke, “Li Hon is the only one here who should not spend the rest of her life in prison for some crime. I am deeply honored, Li Hon, that your monastery saw fit to offer your services to me as payment of this year’s taxes.”

My fist Wiz Kid model from their pre-painted line. I’m not super happy with the result as I struggled with its pre-primed primer and mold lines.

The Band assembled for adventure!

Here is hoping I make to the end and rescue the Soul Gem.

My first airbrushed figures!

I recently started painting with an air brush. I bought the air brush with the following two figures in mind, excited to try, I plugged it in and started painting. Not my best work, but I’m happy with the result as I’ve never used an air brush before.

The Burning Chariot is the second to last figure I needed to complete my 2000pt Tzeentch force.

Thaug appears in the Conan board game campaign I’ve been playing through. It was a ton of fun to play, and a fantastic model to paint.
