Number Five is Alive

Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom! V - Law vs Chaos is now live on Kickstarter.

This superb range of Heroic Scale Old-School style fantasy miniatures by master sculptor Darcy Perry of Star Hat Miniatures are the perfect thing for your RPG table.

The boys in blue.

Two main sets of figurines are available: Law ...and Chaos (as you may have guessed);
and if you acquire both, you'll also be rewarded with a selection of bonus Epic Hero minis ...a selection which is growing as the campaign progresses.

Bad boys bad boys...

One of the Epic bonus figurines was actually based on a character from a Dungeon Crawl Classics campaign I run. It was amazing seeing Brodo, the Eternally Cursed come to life!

The luckiest unlucky rogue who ever lived.

You too could have a custom designed figure of your favourite character lovingly crafted by the talented Mr Perry, by snapping up the one and only Legendary Hero pledge!

Strike while the sculpting tools are hot!

Jump on over to check out Darcy's Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom! V - Law vs Chaos now.
You won't regret it!

A Fifth Helping of Doom!

Yes, he's back at it again.
Darcy Perry of Star Hat Miniatures, sculptor of some of the best Old-School Heroic-Scale minis this side of the black stump has returned with another slathering of pieces that your game table will not be able to do without.

Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom! V "Law vs Chaos"...

The (not so) Usual Suspects.

This fifth, as you may have already guessed, KickStarter from Mr Perry's DLitDoD line is only days away from launch. Two to be precise. And with the amazing success of it's predecessors, I imagine this one will be no less than legendary.

Ready your pledge-pouches!

This time it is those age old adversaries ... Law and Chaos ... one side causing mischief and the other saying, in a firm but fair voice, 'No'.

No bull, you're not going to want to miss this one.

Not being able to have one without the other, I seriously advise all pledgers to put their names down for the full retinue of both factions. That way you'll also be able to get your sticky gauntlets on the Epic Hero... Amarok - Wolf Wizard!

He is truly Epic!

But wait, there's more!
This time 'round, Darcy has been joined by Anton Ducrot of Flytrap Factory, another fine Kiwi sculptor, who has added a giant, a troll, a treeman ...and Basil the boar into the mix.

Milton, his half-brother Cecil ...and Basil! Squeeeeee!

Well, if you're keen for some of these delicious figures, hand sculpted in purest green and cast in finest metal alloy and/or resin; and I know you are; head over to the Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom! V "Law vs Chaos" KickStarter page in a couple of days! They'll be a waitin' for ya.

A selection of morsels from previous DLitDoD KickStarters;
painted by yours truly :)

Eye of the Storm

A good friend of mine: Lewis Morgan ~ Storyteller and Author ~ who also goes by the name of Zebong - Teller of Tales has penned a fabulous story ... and I, I have put pen to paper myself and come up with some illustrations to embellish the pages.

First Storm of Autumn is an intriguing tale of pirates, treasures, tree-houses, chainsaws, and more!

"A haunted ladder. A pirate's dagger. The greatest tree house ever built.
Scott promised his father that he would defend the family, but when your tree house is threatened by the chainsaw wielding pirate next door, there is only one option.
Stay the course and set sail into the jaws of the First Storm of Autumn!"

“It was given to me by an Arabian pirate prince. We sank his ship after a terrible battle and in exchange for sparing his life he gave me this.” Dad fixed Scott with a steely gaze. “You can have it if you make me a promise.”

First Storm of Autumn is currently available on Kickstarter ... in fact you better get in quick if you'd like to secure a copy, as there are only three days remaining! Funding has been reached, so if you you are keen on getting your hands on one, it will be a certainty!

There are various pledge levels available, One or more copies can be gleaned. you can also obtain Lewis' book "The Climbing Competition", from his previous successful Kickstarter.

Fine art giclée prints of the full-page illustrations I have created are also available - perfect for framing and hanging over your settee :)

If you're keen for a gander, please don't hesitate to check out the First Storm of Autumn on Kickstarter now!

Le Grande Totem

A couple of weeks back I got to create this set of pieces for an avid Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island player, from Boston, Massachusetts.
He requested a Morale marker, similar to one I had had made previously, in a double-faced totem style ...but this one was to be extra chunky!
At twice the height of the previous, it certainly has quite the nice weight to it :) Fun to sculpt too.

Sad face.

Happy face.

The usual suspects.


Thatching the roof.

Preparing to defend the estate.

Tropical bliss.

Don't let PETA see this.

Leathery hides.

Mmmmm... yummy!

Nuts from below.

Paradise ...or is it?

A home away from home.

Yes, the Ti-pi is sitting on the lid of Mombasa,
another fabulous game!

Tasty morsels.

Surf and turf.

A smorgasbord of organic, GE-free produce.

Nice and chunky.

Good times.

Hopefully this'll keep that pesky tiger away from our steak.

A good day at the office.

Packaged up (almost) and ready to send!

Something a Little Fishy

Salmon was on the menu with this recently commissioned Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island component pimp.

It was certainly enjoyable working on some different fins from my regular fishies and to get a nice blend of coloured clays to give them that recognisable (hopefully) salmonesque appearance.

Delicious with some dill and a squeeze of lemon.

You have to cook those tasty fish somewhere...

Cookin' with gas!

Somewhere to relax after a fine meal.

A few other things lurk on this island.

Crates, washed upon the shore.

Wood ...always useful.

Set the table, it's dinner time!
