More E-monsters! This episode we've got elements and elephants, which would also be a pretty good name for a very different RPG.

And don't forget: the contest is still going on. There's still plenty of time to enter and plenty of great prizes to be won!

Neat thread.  That basilisk is fantastic.  A great sculpt and a fine paintjob make for a killer figure.

Thanks! It was kind of a rushed paintjob, actually, but I feel like the colour makes it work, which is gratifying.

Speaking of unusual colour choices, here's this episode's featured "monster," the Elf!

Today's critters include the Frog, Giant and the Flightless Bird, and no, I have no idea why it isn't a Bird, Flightless either. Th flightless bird model comes from Rafm; Oakbound distributes them in the UK.

No new monster pic, but it's contest update time! The deadline has now been extended to 30 November because it's just easier that way.

I do not have an image of any creature from today's episode -- or rather I do, but I have no idea where I put my gargoyle. Anyway, it's more like an architectural gargoyle, so it doesn't really count. I can't believe I've gone all these years and never bought or made a gelatinous cube.

Anyway, to pay the image tax, have this Reaper shark guy.



And if anyone knows where that adventurer came from, I'd be grateful to know. She had a textured integral hex base, and I want to say she has a certain Kev-White-ish look about her, but I'm just guessing.

Yes, I think she's a Kev White sculpt, from a small range of dungeon adventurers made by Ground Zero Games.  I used to stock them in my shop in Cambridge, so you may have bought it from me!  :)

I got given this one by a friend, as I recall, when he cleared out his old minis collection. But he might have!

It's exciting times in this episode, with lots of horror monsters: we've got Ghasts, Ghosts, and Ghouls!

That hangman's ghost is really cool.  I'm trying to put together a graveyard set too;  Nice looking area terrain!

Thanks! The hanged ghost is an old Horrorclix figure: #102 Lynch Ghost. He came in the starter set, so he's usually pretty cheap on the secondary market.

Another good episode. A thought that's occurred to me recently is that D&D gnolls are actually very much like folkloric ghouls - especially the connection with hyenas. I'm painting up some of the Frostgrave gnolls as ghouls for HOTT at the moment.
