Does a DM ever really have enough beds for his room set-ups? They have many uses ya know including a typical barracks’ setting, a comfy room at the local Inn or an item of stature in the Captain’s quarters.
With so many possibilities, we manned up and took a daring stab at creating our own cot mold. Of course our home brew beds will never measure up to Dwarven Forge (our favs). Still, we feel our option is a respectable item in the perennial do-it-yourself bargain bin.
The paint job was a bit of a head scratcher – particularly the blanket. Ben tried several colors but the green had a nice army-issue-kinda feel to it (for the average minion).
The bed surplus has already come in handy several times. Most notably during our Friday Night Strike game when we played the Bloodtower on the Moorland delve from the Open Grave book.
Keep looking for ways to take chances in your own Dungeons and Dragons projects. Don’t let the usual creative hesitations and doubt hold you back. You will be surprised at the results.
Who doesn’t love a good dark and damp cave setting? Trouble lurks around every unchecked corner. The smell of death fills the air. Unfortunately, a dry erase marker doesn’t exactly portray that same fear and mystery. Never fear, DMs…Dwarven Forge shall show you the way.
Ben covets every square of his Dwarven Forge Cavernous Set Series. These terrain passage pieces are unmatched in the industry. You will absolutely be astounded by their meticulous painting and subtle details. And the supplemental pieces are just as good. In one instance, Ben had our Dwarf, Crag McBeard, mine for whetstones.
Yes, yes – they’re pricey. Ben gets it. Look, if you want to drive in style, a man’s gotta open the wallet a little. This particular pile is all about budget management and slowly amassing your sets through holidays and birthdays.
Thankfully, Dwarven Forge sets also blend in nicely with Hirst Arts molds. And that connection opens the door to all sorts of creative configurations. D&D miniatures, particularly the four legged kind, work great for surprise encounters.
So pick a set (or two) for the upcoming holidays and get some of these babies in your hand. You won’t be disappointed.
