Would you buy the expansions?
Are you going to make your own terrain?
How does it compare to HeroScape (where applicable)?
Have you tried using the HeroScape creatures with it?

The Grinning Skull Archives – Carniverous Plant WIP

You can find the OP here.

I was sorting through some old fishtank bits and junk from my shed a week or two ago, I was going to chuck a load of stuff, but just in case there was anything useful that I’d forgot about, I checked throught it all the same. Amongst the grotty unused bits there were some cracking bits ripe for conversion in my models and projects, this plastic ornament was just crying out for it to be made into something weird and alien!

October 2015 Craft War – The Competition!

This comes courtesy of Curufin on the DM’s craft forums. This is the only other entry in the Miniatures contest at this time. I’m not sure if I am going to win this month’s challenge. So wish me luck!

The Waterman by Curufin

He was once a mortal man stranded at sea who pleaded to Procan, god of the sea. Procan heard the cries of the young man and bestowed the power of the Golden Conch of Water Control. The young man became the Waterman, Herald of Procan. He used the Golden Conch of Water Control to create his Water Wagon which is pulled by four water elementals. For a time, he was looked on as a good omen by sailors and fisherman. But as the sea goddesses, Geshtai and Osprem, became more popular among the sea ports and wharf towns, the faith changed from Procan to these more forgiving goddesses. Procan’s mood changed to wrathful, and so to did the Waterman. He is now more of a harbinger than a herald. He precedes great storms at seas, and any siting of him scares ship captains and fisherman alike to keep their boats close to shore. He is an ill omen and stories say he is either an undead or some demon or something far more sinister. Any survivors the Waterman comes upon on at sea, he captures in his Water Wagon….what happens to those poor souls no one knows…
