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!

D&D 5E, and back to blogging

Wow, where have the past four plus months gone??? For a variety of personal reasons, I took the summer off from all things gaming, painting, and writing. Now that summer has morphed into fall, I have decided to re-engage my hobby brain and get back to work, so to speak.

In my last post, I mentioned that I had taken possession of the 5E Starter Set and that I would give it a review. Well, I'm going to have to dust off my notes and give it another quick read so I can deliver a proper writeup. And to add to my 5E workload, I also now have the PH, MM, and Hoard of the Dragon Queen adventure. Looks like The Rise of Tiamat will be here shortly, while the DMG will be out in early December.

On the lead front, not much happened over the summer, just a few random things: a Superior Models eagle, an old DragonTooth baggie of P6 Superhero and Superheroine, some Heritage Air Power planes, a couple Imrie Risley 54mm models from A Christmas Carol, and more recently some Reaper DHL minis that were too cheap to pass up! I remain a sucker for a good bargain, and for a good joke setup: a Fire Giant, a Demon, and a Cloaker walk in to a bar...and cost me less than $21! Thank you, thank you, you're all too kind. Pics to follow. At some point.

If you are reading this, thanks for sticking around. I hope this is the first of many entries as I try to have some fun again.
