This week’s Miniature of the Week is a freaky beast with a sparkplug head, courtesy of Mordicai Knode.
One nice thing about using minis for an RPG is that you can cross genres and rules systems at will. If you want to use your red dragon in your sci-fi game, just call it a space dragon! And if you want to use an alien Hive Queen as a hideous creature living beneath your fantasy world’s biggest city, who’s going to stop you?
“The metal horror is a scrap metal Hive Queen bough in Bryant Park (in NYC),” said Mordicai of his D20 campaign’s ultimate battle. “Threads came together– the big lunk of a soldier was revealed to have been taking rogue levels and be in a secret conspiracy, the crime lord was part of the same conspiracy but sold his soul in the penultimate session, the alchemist had an open-secret that she was a demon worshiper, and the other player was a sex and drug wizard. Somehow they managed to save the City from the horrors beneath it with but one of them dying.”
A sex and drug wizard? Where’s the miniature for that one?
