Sorry, content browsing has some technical issues. If you want to switch main category (on the right), choose -Any- and then choose the category you want to see next. I'm trying to fix the issue soon.
Another post in the series helping you to find prepainted miniatures for your Sword & Sorcery rpg - this time mostly D&D miniatures, but also some heroscape. I've decided to use Troll and Toad as the site to link the miniatures to as they have a good selection of product lines for sale and get refills from time to time. I'm using mostly cheap miniatures, although there are some more expensive ones, which I'll try to mention.
Traditionally, most fantasy miniatures represent warriors, wizards and other combatant or adventurous types, and even then only people. This leaves many of us gamemasters want more miniatures, both for scenes taking place in the middle of crowds or where larger, more exotic weapons are used in combat. There are some such items various manufacturers are producing, but mostly they are metal miniatures, and many prepainted miniature collectors want to stay away from those metal ones.
Chases on horsebacks, cavalry charges and extremely cool miniatures. Mounted miniatures are made for Sword & Sorcery, much more than for Dungeons & Dragons! Here I'll present you various mounted/cavalry miniatures you can use for your S&S games. While many of them are DDM, there are also some excellent Mage Knights among them and a view to the Lord of the Rings miniatures.
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.
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.
Anyone can get a great miniature collections very cheaply, thanks to collectible miniatures vith very rare miniatures and stores selling singles. For as low as $25, you can get a basic set of 50 miniatures that has a lot of those extras your player characters are going to meet a lot, plus a lot of different characters for pc's or villains. I've chosen to use Troll & Toad as I've made a lot of purchases with them I'm happy with, and they have a great collection (including Mage Knight) and good photos of everything.
There are thousands of prepainted miniatures out there, and while some are difficult to find, many of them suit well for Sword & Sorcery rpg's. This series of posts is meant to show you miniature's I've found for my purposes and tell you what these miniatures are, and in many cases linking them straight to a miniatures singles store.
I've been drawing Pulut -sarjakuva (Pigeons -comics) for a Finnish young's community site, and like I've often drawn these pigeons to guestbooks and in greetings, I decided to create a decoration for our wedding cake of these comic characters. The same theme was seen in wedding invitation, where one pigeon 'accidentally' prod a ring closer to another pigeon - and the wedding cake decoration was made from this picture.
