I also love the contrast of this image. The ghosts being the same color as the dungeon lends a bleakness to our hero’s prospects.

Yes, it's very nicely done and very effective.

Another giant...this time a Citadel / Ral Partha joint release...Stone Giant, facing off against more Metal Magic characters.



I’m digging this giant a lot. Also, what are you using for the sky background in this one?

Well some of them do look like they could so with feeding up!  Their eyes are piercing. I see that they have coordinated their coloured contact lenses with their outfits, reminds me of one of my wife's friends...

Yeah, he’s pretty cool...and not very common.

Maybe 20 years ago i saw tagboard in a store (Walmart?) with patterns on them.  One was a sky pattern..I don’t even remember why I picked it up, but I’ve been using a scrap of it for miniature backgrounds for years.

Ha ha, I was sort of experimenting with “glowing” eye colors.

Worst roll on the wandering monster table!!

Probably should have made this a nighttime picture :), oh well.  This campsite scene has a real mix.  The Gnome is from Midlam Miniatures Kickstarter, the Knight is from Reaper, the two headed troll is from Knightmare Miniatures, and finally, two old Marauder trolls.

Well, at least the Trolls turned up before the two heroes had got tucked up together in their little tent!

Perhaps he knows there’s a hobbit with a crossbow hiding in the wardrobe?

Taking a break from the dioramas to post a picture from my backyard trailcam!  Winters in Wisconsin are always interesting...
