A jewel from Pathfinder miniatures for every DDM collector

Medusa, standing at the door of a temple

While I have little need for Pathfinder miniatures after collecting a large amount of D&D miniatures, I found one diamond from the collection that every DDM collector should be aware of - Medusa. D&D monster design decisions have moved away from classic themes since the late releases of 3E line, and I haven't been happy most of these changes. What I did like is what they did to Lamia. But medusa, just like dryad, were transformed into something that wasn't so main stream.

This small diorama -photo was made for a small maxminis -competition. Some terrain props I've made before were used in the diorama, and potato flour to make the ground look more authentic. Sky was taken from a photo and added to it using Gimp.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Arcane Legions, a tempting alternative

A sample selection of Arcane Legions miniatures

I told you briefly about Arcane Legions miniatures in my first post about miniatures for Sword & Sorcery. Now I'll give you a bit more insight of these minis if you consider using them in a Sword & Sorcery game - or any ancient era/fantasy roleplaying game. I'll have to say again that I love these minis and would really like to use them for a roleplaying game, and with some additions they would work well with Beasts & Barbarians.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Intro

Clix for Sword & Sorcery

I've collected minis from various product lines for Sword & Sorcery roleplaying campaign for some time now. Recent discussion at Savage Worlds forums about what minis should be used for Beasts & Barbarians game gave me an idea  perhaps I should document my collections and help others to find miniatures for their Sword & Sorcery games.

D&D minis for Sword & Sorcery: Priests & cultists

This is the second post in series showing miniatures suitable for a Sword & Sorcery roleplaying game. This time, you'll see some great picks from D&D miniatures for a Sword & Sorcery game.

Note that fixed minis may have different name somewhere - they often have one name for miniature and a different one for the miniature game (Roving swordmage might be called Male human swordmage)
