A closer look to Star Wars interior terrain pieces

I've spent a lot of time to prepare some big changes for the site, but it's already some time from my previous post and I wanted to post something new on the site. I started digging my materials and found some photos of Star Wars interior terrain pieces I had traded away, very similar to those I'm using myself. I realized that I had't made article showing my Star Wars interior terrains in detail, so now you'll see better pictures of these terrains, as well as get some insight about how these terrains were built.

 

Prepainted miniatures for Beasts & Barbarians

Ancestor’s Ghost, Demonic Mastiff and Fanged ape

I've now been posting several posts about prepainted miniatures fitting for Sword & Sorcery settings. This time, I'm making a world -specific entry about monsters - for my favourite setting Beasts & Barbarians. I'm mostly using D&D miniatures but also other cheap miniatures, mainly from mage knight/clix series.

Imperial walkers - a resin cast AT-ST and model kit AT-AT

 

I used to run a D20 Star Wars campaign years ago, and I created some At-St walkers for it. I created an original piece and then made a mold of it and  created a few pieces. I used my AT-AT model kit and the chicken walkers with paper miniatures and they worked well. This was before I got addicted to plastic Star Wars miniatures.

I didn't buy the At-At miniature, but I've been using this kit with the miniatures. Even if it's a bit small to be used with the miniatures, it looks ok if there's no other vehicles around, but even if there is it's still better than nothing.

Review: Beasts & Barbarians Golden Edition

New cover

If you've been reading my posts, you know I've become a huge fan of Gramel and it's Beasts & Barbarians products. When Golden Edition came out, I run to buy the pdf right away. This new 210-paged document gives you mainly two new things: New images (which I like a lot, even if I had a small hope of having color graphics instead B&W), adventure generator, npc collection and a bunch of new monsters.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 8 - commoners and monks

Villagers at the market

Commoners (or non-combatants) are miniatures that have a lot of use in rpg's. A combat becomes a lot more interesting when the villains are among civilians, the heroes need to organize defense of a village full of peasants or the heroes will anger the townsfolk when they are surrounded by hundreds of them.

Following photos will give you some commoners and information about them can be found below; You'll find also monks from the page.

Review: Death of a tyrant (Beasts & Barbarians adventure)

Death of a Tyrant -cover

A while ago I got my hands of Beasts & Barbarians and realized it was a perfect setting for the Sword & Sorcery campaign I was planning. I've had plans to run only small sandbox -using adventures with little or no preparation, so I wasn't first planning to buy this adventure even if GRAmel had became my favourite publisher. But I was curious to see what the Gazetteer -part of the adventure had so soon I realized having bought the pdf and wanted to use the adventures in my game.
