This blog is about the world of gaming miniatures, as seen from my perspective. I've been collecting and painting for over 30 years now, and while my primary focus is miniatures for D&D, I also enjoy many other games that use minis, so we'll be covering those as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Dads FTW

Just a quick note to my fellow geek/nerd/leadhead dads out there. Happy Father's Day to you and to all fathers out there. I don't think Frodo and I are going to paint today, but he has requested some of my time to blow me to pieces in the videogame of his choice.  I knew my two decades in the gaming industry would pay off one day! Well, at least I can hold my own most of the time.

Red Box Games Kickstarter - 48 Hours Left!

Tre Manor produces some awesome work, in case you are not familiar with Red Box Games. His current Kickstarter campaign is in the final stretch, with two days left to join in on the action. I wish I had the extra funds to join this one too, but sadly I'm going to have to pass.

Whisper & Venom - For The Greater Good of Lesser Gnome Games!

 While I sit here rubbing my hands together and cackling in anticipation (yes, I am waiting for my Demons & Devils package from the successful Center Stage Miniatures Kickstarter), I thought I would share another cool Kickstarter project in case you are interested:

Whisper & Venom - a nifty boxed set that contains an adventure and setting, dice, and (you saw this one coming) miniatures! Lesser Gnome Games is run by Zach, an Acaeum member and fan of old-school gaming. There's Jeff Dee artwork, and did I already mention miniatures??? It looks like Zach has poured a LOT of work into W&V, so if it looks like your cup of tea, why don't you join? The project is fully funded at this point, so now we just need some more folks to jump on board an unlock stretch goals!

Thanks for indulging me in spreading the word for Whisper & Venom. I'll be back soon with a new Lead Market Report, and some WIPs of various projects and perhaps some pics of a few recent fun finds.
