Wrath of Ashardalon, concluded.

The Ancient Red Wyrm Ashardalon is back in Under Mountain, and the townspeople of the nearby village of Longbridge are worried. Funny that I actually purchased Wrath of Ashardalon (WoA) before I picked up Castle Ravenloft (CR). But I finished painting Ravenloft first. I think the big baddies in Ashardalon were a block for me. I loved painting the Dracolich from CR, whereas the Red Dragon Ashardalon himself was not as easy for me to “see” as a painter. It eventually came though, and so over a year after purchasing it I have finally finished painting all of Ashardalon. Here I list the large monsters I completed, as well as a compilation of the smaller monsters and heroes already posted in “Natural d20, the heroes of Wrath of Ashadalon” – and – “Wrath of Ashardalon, or how I started to Paint Again”. Enjoy, and feel free to ask question re: paints, etc.


Castle Ravenloft

The crypt door opens, revealing a dark and musty chamber. Coffins line the walls. A distinct chill is felt as you step across the threshold…

Ravenloft is an interesting D&D setting. Having never played much with it, I do like the theme. Thus it is that the D&D Adventure system (i.e. DM-less dungeon crawl) allowed me to explore Count Strahd’s castle. And the first step, of course, was to paint the castle’s denizens.

14328: Olivia, Mercenaries Cleric

One of my best friends from way back, Ben Roberts, has a daughter named Olivia. She mentioned that she plays D&D and her character is “an albino girl, a cleric with pink hair”. That image made an impression on me, and when I saw the Reaper model 14328: Olivia, Mercenaries Cleric in the store, I knew I had to buy and paint Olivia for Olivia!
