Miniature Mayhem Paint-and-Take Event #2

The Final Fantasy diorama that I painted for
Miniature Mayhem #2 on July 28, 2018. Miniatures
from Reaper Miniatures.
Continuing with the monthly series of local events I'm running here in Hopkinsville, Kentucky for our local game group, Miniature Mayhem is a paint-and-take event schedule for the last Friday of every month.

RPG miniatures, paint, supplies, and dinner provided free of charge for attendees. Open to members of Hopkinsville Adventurer's Guild for Tabletop Roleplaying by RSVP only.

You can see photos from each of the gatherings on the event's Facebook page. I'll be posting here each month with the miniature(s) I painted during the event. I also have a DeviantArt gallery dedicated to the miniatures I've painted.

This month I decided to paint a diorama based on one of my favorite retro video games, Final Fantasy from the original Nintendo/Famicom 1987 release.  Fun fact: Final Fantasy and I share the same birthday (December 18).

Final Fantasy official artwork, trailers, characters, merchandise, and music is copyrighted to Square Enix.

The first in the series has been released with the July 2018 crate.

The Gaming Gang Reviews Wrath of the Jotunn & Into the Wintery Gale



The Gaming Gang reviewed Wrath of the Jotunn (Into the Wintery Gale) on their podcast back in February of this year. Unfortunately, I didn't see it until now, and wanted to be sure to share.

I really appreciate the hard work folks put into providing reviews -- I know it's not an easy task. So, if you or your blog review something I wrote, please feel free to send me a link so I can share it!

The review begins at about the 40-minute mark of the episode.

Occult Secrets of the Underworld Kickstarter

I've designed another Kickstarter for AAW Games / Adventureaweek.com, this time for an expansion to their amazing Underworld setting (Underworld Races & Classes, Rise of the Drow). I also contributed design to the book itself. The project is fully funded, and you can check it out by clicking here.

The untold vastness of the realms below beckons, and for the first time, we unearth the mysterious occult traditions of the Underworld. Surface-dwellers can now lay their eyes upon the concepts of the Red River that binds all, attain amber enlightenment and transcend the bounds of the flesh with unique and potent magitech! Psychic poisons, mesmerizing spores and the damned of Hel await your command!
