Today's episode features the Aleax, the Algoid and Al-Mi'raj (since "al" already means "the").

An Aleax is just a person that kind of glows in a colour related to the target's alignment, so I bashed out a quick silver base and purple wash on a model I probably wasn't going to be using anyway.

I didn't do any work on today's model: it's just a clear plastic ghostie, I think from WotC. I don't *think* it's the same clear plastic ghostie I used for the Spectre, but honestly the Apparition is pretty close conceptually.

More B-monsters in the most recent two episodes, including the Babbler and the Blood Hawk!

Last plastic dinosaur for a while, I promise: it's the Bonesnapper, appearing alongside the Booka in today's episode:

I'm looking forward to this. I caught up on the last couple of episodes last night, and they were terrific - especially the episode on giants.

Thanks! I was pretty pleased with the giants episode; there was even more I could have said, I think, but time started to run short.

Also, this toy ape from a car boot sale stands in as the Dakon in Friday's episode.

Another good episode!

I take your point on small dragons re: the firedrake, but there's also a good argument for smaller dragons made by Wayne Rossi here. He talks about how 'dragon inflation' has meant that there are far fewer dragons in D&D than there should be and would be if they were commonly horse-sized (as in lots of historical depictions) rather than gigantic.

I also feel compelled to add this firenewt ("Sir Salmon Saliva the Second", a PC in the Whitehack campaign I run for my kids) to the thread.
