Elemental Forces III

In the past week, I finally completed my Bones Earth Elemental project. The way was not without obstacles, but I am pretty happy with the results, and I would dearly love to get this beastie onto the table in an RPG scenario of some kind.

I set up the design and color scheme in my previous posts. To finish the project, I focused on details. Along the way, I also continued to shade and highlight the model with increasingly pale and yellowish colors to build on the sandstone theme.

Dindrenzi 2.0

When Spartan Games released the latest version of their starship combat game, Firestorm Armada, they embarked on a new round of revisions to the game's miniature line. To Spartan's great credit, all past sculpts are still fully legal for use in the game. Most of the new designs share the same game statistics as their predecessors, although the exceptions to this rule are noteworthy.

In this installment, I will be taking a brief look at the revised Dindrenzi models from the Battle for Valhalla scenario box. Included in this review will be the new Praetorian battleship, which is not a simple revision of the older ships, but is a new class, with its own stat line.
