We started playing Dungeons and Dragons at the office on Monday nights and it has been pretty fun.  I was lucky enough to find a miniature that closely resembled my character, which happened to be modeled after a character from the latest Soul Calibur.  This is what it looked like when I bought it.

I’ve never painted a model before, much less something that tiny, but I have to say that it was pretty damned fun and was an great learning experience.  It has certainly helped me control the shaking in my hands, which is something that always bothered me while taking photos.  Now hopefully I won’t ruin it when I seal it in varnish.

    Ah, Kiko. This takes me back to the day. I used to paint these little bastards myself, too. And I didn’t even use them in D&D sessions. I just liked doing it. In the end, it got too expensive for the really cool stuff, and I just went on to other things. Good to know the art hasn’t died completely though.

    Sweet, dude. I’ve been contemplating picking up D&D 4E for the gaijin guys to start up a campaign. Is it necessary to play with the grid map and figurines and all that stuff? The only RPG I ever played with a grid map and figurines was Battletech…I mean, it looks cool and all, but I’m only familiar with playing off a character sheet and a set of dice.

    Still — all that being said — awesome job on Marrek!
