    After weeks away from the bench, I'm starting to paint a bit again - bugs, heat, and humidity have helped entice me to stay indoors!

    This is a piece I'd intended to take Reapercon this year.  He's 99% complete, pending any last minute adjustments after he sits for a few days.  I'm really happy with him, tho he's almost overpowered by the base.


    PS - That's a the base off of my Dog Might mini holder serving as a makeshift plinth for pictures!



    This is incredible.  I wants it lol.


    Truly amazing work.

    Started using my new DMG mini painter holder tonight.  First mini is my Great Pumpkin doggie in honor of my brother @tgpumpkin.  I modeled the dog after a puppy that was on "The Incredible Dr. Pol" while I was painting.  I like how the leather turned out!








    This is magnificent.  I’m honored.  Not only am I carrying the ancient transcripts of DMG holding all its secrets and mysteries for future generations, but clearly I am well equipped with flasks filled with ales and other delicious liquids :D

    Yeah, FFG's LCGs are pretty damn addicting. For a while, we were hooked on 3 of them and had to get everything that came out. Then, we got too busy and cut back a bit. Thank goodness.

    Now, I will be pestering you to play the Arkham Horror LCG . I have already turned @tgpumpkin and @WxCougar!!!!!!!!!

    I actually played ACG this weekend.  Blood on the Altar chapter.  I think we either have 2 or 3 episodes left.

    I'll tell them nearly all new items will come into play in the one shot.  Some will be critical to have.  They have to decide whether to get something to help them win the game vs win the RPG for the group.

    I think they’re going to have an awesome time with your adventure...awesome minis....and overall night.  I know it’s sappy but it’s touching to see you go all out like this.  Sorry I can’t be a part of it :) 

    have fun.

    That's a good idea.  Maybe I can come up with some special things in the market.  Egg Nog healing potion.  It will help in the adventure, but not in Roll Player.

    Yes this.  I was just thinking if you could do some playful things with the roll player game itself that doesn’t change the gameplay really but adds to the nuance of your adventure.

    Can you expand on this?

    Yes.  So from what I THINK I understand is they are playing Roll Player the standard way...and then they go out on their adventure yes?

    If that is the case, I'm just wondering do you maybe either create your own alignment cards with fun Christmas themed titles instead of "Protector" ... "Maniac" etc.  Looking at little things like the titles or alignments and coming up with Christmas themed goofy ones.

    They will create their characters.  They know they will be going on an adventure with the characters, but they'll also want to win as I will have a prize for the winner.  What they don't know is that they will want some spells, and a high constitution is as important as a low constitution is bad.

    So is Roll Player just making the characters then and then they adventure with them?  Is everything in the game being played the traditional way otherwise?

  8. I'm asking because I'm wondering if you've considered to be thematic to the night you're planning if you want to change the the alignment cards to something a bit more thematic.  If you're doing that already then great.  Just seeing if there are neat little ways you can tweak Roll Player so you're still playing the game but it has themed elements.

    What I was thinking was telling them that the numbers were written in a dark ruddy color.  So the have to solve the puzzle, and then think to write the answer in blood.  If  they just write it in ink, a creepy voice will say that they are pretty smart, but not as smart as they think.  Then the number they wrote will fade away until it has vanished.

    That sounds very cool.  I like that.

    Still time.  I'll be done with minis tonight.  Tomorrow is working on the story and cleaning house.

    Ok, well since the bulk of the work is done I'll start with light details that could be manageable to change IF you want to do it.

    To start, I think everything looks fantastic @Barb Bliss.  Your minis are wonderful and reading the script and your comments it feels like it will be a lot of fun.

    One idea I'd like to throw out that I think you do a little but might be more fun is giving some more of your enemies some unique methods of defeating them.  I wonder if you can some more fun with that.  I always liked in RPGs I played (that were video game admittedly) the enemies that had unique and creative ways of winning.  Have you also considered giving your players some unique Christmas themed weaknesses as well?

    If you mentioned doing that I apologize.  I am trying to catch up.  So far I think everything looks great.

  11. Is it too late @Barb Bliss to comment because I finally have a window of time where I can throw some things your way.

    With all the ideas you've had though I don't want to slow your progress.

    If you want me to zero in on a specific thing let me know.  If I'm too late, I'll just eat my humble pie and make it up to you.

    Again, I'm sorry this week kicked my ass.  I've barely had a chance to be on here.

    @tgpumpkin I require reading on all the DMG conspiracy theories. As a fan of conspiracy theories, it's incredibly valuable to my ability to do my job. 

    In the depths of the 7th layer of hell of reading countless college Freshman Finals....I see I've been summoned to a far greater purpose....opening the eyes of @Anne and lifting the veil of lies @Konas has attempted to shroud us underdogs about Dusty Doom....the journey of a 1000 miles pages...and various projects @Konas claims he'll never do but does them anyway....

    tis a heavy burden...but one I shall dutifully take on. 

    *hands @Anne tinfoil hat*

    you'll need this....it's standard issue around these parts

     I have a game "night" on 12/22.  The plan is to play Roll Player, and then take them on a journey to "War in Christmas Village".  I WELCOME ANY/ALL IDEAS AS TO WHAT TO DO.  I thought I'd have fortune teller tell them to follow the white rabbit (ala Neo and the matrix and Jefferson Airplane).  Then there is a bunny ("Cotton") with a gun belt slung over one shoulder.  I'll have him running by saying "We're late!" over and over and "Come on!  Come on then." here and there while waving his six shooter over his head.  They have to follow or we can just start drinking.  They'll get into a sheltered glen.  The bunny then will say something like "Thank you for coming, but I have a feeling you're going to be sorry you did.  By the way, I hope you like snow."  Then the portal zips them to the north pole.

    The 50,000 foot level premise is that there is a Krampus like woman named (a little help here).  She was beautiful and popular once, but has since been transformed into an evil creature by a warlock that she spurned.  So now she's determined to wipe out happiness in the world, and what a better start than to destroy Christmas from the inside out.  She cast a spell over Christmas Village.  She has Santa believing all children are not nice.  Instead of giving toys that would be loved, he's got the elves developing deadly toys.  Note: The elves are happy to oblige, as they are tired of making toys for kids and then seeing them ignored because it's not an electronic device.  So far they've created evil toys like Chuckie, treent Christmas trees, and mimic presents.  The reindeer are also affected by the spell.  Rudolf has started turning into a zombie, and Blitzen has taken to walking on 2 legs, drinking, shooting, and smoking Camels.

    Anyhoo, Mrs Claus sees the changes in her husband (and elves, reindeer, et.al.) but can't convince him that what he's doing is wrong.  Others like her (of strong constitution), have been quietly banding together to figure out what's going on and try to fix the problem.  The Easter Bunny and Burl Ives Snowman are allies of Mrs Claus.  The snowman has some magic ability of his own, and creates a portal for the Easter Bunny to bring heros to help save Christmas.

    Note: When Santa flies off on Christmas eve, if the house is inhabited by Michigan fans that never went to the school (aka Walverines), he's to put lumps of coal in their stockings and bludgeon any children found inside with the coal sock.  Madam Krampus may be evil and all, but if she's going to eat children, it might as be little Walverines.  The world would be a better place less of them strutting around. 

    I have the Christmas Treent (how evil are your branches) and packages, fighting elves, and these. The top link I have in my hot little hands (where bunny ideas came from), but the bottom two have to ship yet.  They say the 12th for ship date, but I live about 10 miles from a distribution center, and sometimes I get lucky and things ship fast if the items are in that distribution center and another deliver is going to my street.  So bear that in mind when making suggestions.





    I'll post more pictures as I take them.  The elves are done, and the evil toy is close to being done.



    @Barb Bliss first off your figures look fantastic.  You’re awesome at mini painting.

    with regard to your scenario are you needing help to put together a role play scenario or is this something like players will play several games and so you have a narrative connecting them from game to game?  Just trying to understand before I start popping suggestions :)
