It's the two henchmen from Reaper Miniatures Dark Heaven Legends range - 02548 Merchant & Henchmen. Though I painted the merchant some time ago, the two henchmen sat around partially… Continue reading Two Henchmen & a Chest
In an episode I've written, I needed a lady in a bathtub to add interest to the miniatures I've assembled for the photos.

So, what has all of this talk about growth and change have to do with Tavern Floor Tiles?… Continue reading DIY Tavern Floor Tiles
