D&D: Manny the Monk


He was created to be my new D&D 5e first level character that we started playing with few weeks ago.
I will post more about his stats and background in another post, today I'll just show the miniature itself.
Manny Ram is a conglomeration of GW models, part High Elf, Wood Elf and a fair bit of GS to pull it all together. His pet rat is made from GS, first rat I have modeled.


I was trying to get the idea that he gets two attacks each turn, one is a bonus action.


Sweep with spear and punch combo.


Wood elf head, torso and legs with High elf arms and spear, tied together with GS, like the rat and backpack.



I am also going to use him as my Heritor in Ghost as well. You will have seen this model in bits and pieces, mainly on board the Wicked Wendy ship I made for Ghost Archipelago.

Ghost Archipelago: Pyramid

It may seem that I have posted quite a few large builds recently all in a rush, but they have all been on the go at pretty much the same time and in the last week they have all been completed. After this pyramid there is one last building to complete but that may well be some way off as its the largest of them all and for Frostgrave.

Anyway here is the pyramid I began working on a month or two ago all completed and ready to go.



It is basically three boxes made from packing box card glued together, with an archway added to the top, this was made from a template I made from my Quest set, see here.




Again my Heritor and Warden make a fleeting appearance for scale purposes.



Lots of PVAcrete added.

Ghost Archipelago: Ruin Terrain

Alongside several other projects I have on the go at the moment, one I'm doing for myself is another ruin for Ghost Archipelago.

This was born from a desire to make my own sculptural pieces rather than buying loads of Buddhist aquarium pieces. Then of course I found a ready supply of sculpts from Poundland and everything changed, but since I'm not good at lobbing stuff away I've persevered.

Here is my ruin influenced by various bits of aquaria, but sculpted from PVAcrete on top of a card base.

I'm treating this as an experiment, can't see me making anything like it again, but it has been fun.













Will have to bite the bullet and put some crew together next :-)
