Reaper Miniatures


Rangers of Shadow Deep, Mission: Burning Light. Scenario C: The Courtyard.

PROLOGUE Before entering the courtyard Blackwulf is given the Lorenthian messengers satchel recovered by Sigurd. Blackwulf attempts to read the runes inscribed on a sealed letter inside  +2  roll (20)  and instantly recognizes it as an old ranger cipher once used by both kingdoms during better days.  Blackwulf reads it and calls for Xavos!?  ..”Xavos is still at Tor Varden, Chief “  mutters Skuti.. “ Scribes never around when you need one right?” Blackwulf fumbles for some paper and a charcoal stick from the messengers satchel and starts to write :Blackwulf’s Report:  Met maximum resistance at the Covent Gathouse. Ogres, Undead. We were lucky. The Knight Calistra fights like shes possessed by St Emilia herself. When Sigurd and I found ourselves locked in combat with the brutes, she entered the fray and slew them with a single stroke, not once, but twice. Evil magic is at work here, bound by magic chains, the flayed dead come back to life. Lorenthia was here as well

Rangers of Shadow Deep, Mission: Burning Light. Scenario A: The Gatehouse

 A week ago, one of your fellow rangers stumbled into camp, escorting a Lorenthian survivor she had rescued from a pack of Orcs in the Shadow Deep. During their debriefing, they mentioned seeing the ruins of the Convent of St. Emilia, once a great house of healing in Lorenthia. It is said that the nuns never turned away anyone that came to them in sickness, and that they were aided in their mission through the possession of a powerful magic artefact, the Decanter of St. Emilia, also known as the Decanter of Burning Light. Water poured from this silver decanter onto a wound would wash it free of any infection, poison, or other corruption. The ranger didn’t approach the convent but, from what she could tell, the place appeared abandoned. The walls were cracked, and several of the towers had collapsed. Soon afterwards, you were summoned by your captains. They explained the situation and tasked you to venture into the Shadow Deep, make your way to the ruins, and, if possible, find the Decanter of St. Emilia

Rangers of Shadow Deep, Mission 3: Descent into Darkness, Scenario 3: The Last Stand , Part I

 Mission 3: Descent into Darkness, Scenario 3: The Last Stand Having pushed through the swamp, the land becomes firmer and the gnarled trees less dense. The rolling black clouds above still cast everything in a perpetual twilight and ash and smoke still drifts in the air. For the most part, the land is quiet. No birds sing, no insects call out. Occasionally, a small animal twitters from the shadows or scampers through the dead leaves. Twice you have spotted small patrols composed of gnolls and masked men, but both times you have been able to find cover and remain undetected. With few indications of the passage of time, you are forced to rely on your own reckoning and the growl of your stomach to know when to call halts, rest, and eat. You have passed several streams, which seem to contain fresh water, though you remain wary of drinking from them.Just as your companions are starting to tire, and you are considering calling a halt for sleep, youspy a broken structure in the gloom ahead.

Rangers of Shadow Deep, Mission 2, The Beacon Tower: Scenario 2  Tor Varden, The Lower LevelThis report is a complete playthrough.Full layout of lower levels with all the bits for the potential 4 rooms.Pre-game notes.I already gave my initial thoughts on the scale down of the towers rooms  in my last post but-Wow I still had a lot more to do here than I Initially planned. Not only did I build the modular floors and walls for all 3 rooms, I had put together a bunch of different things to fill out all four potential rooms in the scenario.  Thankfully I had all the bits and pieces I needed it just took me while to paint 20 something small bits of scatter terrain / atmosphere decoration. This in the end was a good thing as its better now painted up for use then sitting around in a bin on my desk.I also put everything together for Scenario 3 which included even more pieces, while I get to reuse my floor tiles as the tower roof  , the walkway, floor hatch, bonfire, prisoner, pilla

Necromancer // Nekromanta

The miniature is called Satheras, Elf Warlock. It was produced by Reaper Miniatures and sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I bought it several years ago as it was released as one of the first minis in Reaper Bone Series. Figurka wydana kilka lat temu przez Reaper Miniatures w serii Bone. Tani plastyczny materiał,z którego została wyprodukowana nie ułatwiał malowania, ale jak na model za kilka złotych wyszło całkiem dobrze.

Rangers of Shadow Deep, The Beacon Tower Episode 1, The Bridge Guards Play-through.

Rangers of Shadow Deep, Mission 2: The Beacon Tower. Ep 1: The Bridge GuardsThe following is my 3rd Rangers of Shadow Deep complete play- throughPre-game notesDidn’t have to a lot for this one either other than paint up my “Terrain Crate” Camp site, the Vulture and one more Frostgrave Soldier for a potential Tor Varden Man at Arms.The mission specifies  Gnolls as the adversary . I don’t own any Gnolls, but I could not think of better use for my horde of Lord of the Rings  Orcs and primary agents of Shadow Deep in my games , the Orcs have the exact same stats as the Gnolls presented in the mission or the RoSD bestiary.All die rolls are shown as (X) all combat rolls are (x,x) The first number always being the heroes. There is no Target Point in this scenario but the Orcs will never randomly move into the river.This scenario lasts a maximum of ten turns. During the event phase of each odd- numbered turn (so turns 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9)  I will draw one Event Card

My Favorite Things 2018

My Favorite Things 2018I always finish the year out on the blog with some sort of year  end commentary on my wargaming hobby. This year I thought I’d try something different, instead of toothless resolutions or lamenting my lack of posting I thought I mention my favorite wargaming related things of 2018, I may not have played a ton of games this year or go to Adepticon but I did actually do more than last couple years combined (or least it feels like it) so as we kiss off 2018 here’s what was keeping me busy this year when it comes to wargaming.Favorite Miniatures Company:Reaper MiniaturesNot too much of a shock if you’ve read the blog the last 12 years, they’re always in the background and always right there besides whatever else I am talking about.  I’ve been a fan, I’ve been highly irritated by some decisions thye’ve made but they’ve have persevered and have kept my loyalty longer than any other miniature company. This year I bought , built and painted more Reaper than any other manufacture, for&

Rangers of Shadow Deep, Episode 2. Full play- through.

Rangers of Shadow Deep, Mission 1, Episode 2: The Infected Trees.Moving right along Blackwulf and the boys continue their quest!Updated Roster Sheets:Intro:“Examining the bodies of the zombies, along with the other clues from the village, left little doubt. The village had been attacked by some horrific species of giant spider, whose venom reanimated the dead. Thankfully, such creatures move slowly. Likely, they will have retreated to the nearest shelter to slowly feast upon the missing villagers. Your duty is clear. Taking just enough time to patch up your wounds, and make a quick pyre for the dead, you set off after the spiders, following their faint, but unique tracks. After nearly a day’s pursuit, the tracks lead into a small forest. Chances are the spiders are not too deep in the woods. You must find them, destroy them and any nests they might have made, and, if you are lucky, rescue any survivors.The map, lower portion got cut off but you can easily tell whats going on  from the other photosPrelimi

Efreeti Emir Painting Showcase (Reaper Miniatures)

A quick blurb about this miniature and why I chose it. I bought this model a few years ago with the intention of using him as a Herald of Khorne for Warhammer 40K. Long story short, that never came to be and it's been sitting around.The model is Efreeti Emir and it's a Reaper Miniatures model. It's a metal model, which I dislike, but it was such a cool model that I didn't care :) Also, I have had the urge to play around with painting NMM forever now. However, until recently, I had batches of models to paint, not really ideal...continue reading

The Blackbarrow Chronicles , Episode 4- The Cult of Orcus ,Part I

Summers distraction’s certainly got the better of me, but an early harsh fall has us spending weekends inside and me getting back to some fantasy gaming. We actually played this awhile back but the time it take to put these write ups together plus all the other things I want to mention should be an easy 2 or part post, Ill get the game in here and most of post game , advancement details in Part 2.Let start with basics: we revisited the Otherworld Skirmish rules for this and had a grand old time,  while our homebrew RPG rules were cool they’re a bit busy and for this bigger skirmish I wanted something totally fleshed out.Having played an posted a bunch of Otherworld Skirmish (OWS)  games before I was prepared ,  but the game does has some shortcomings which I needed to resolve for the ongoing narrative of the endless campaign based on our little village.  While I have always liked this game , the draw backs for me were always- There are no Campaign rules , There is  a serious lack of c
