Is that a Reaper Dire Bear? Just bought one of those to be a playmate for my Stone Giants. He's a whopper!

I think I now know what to add to your parcel though  :icon_wink:

It is not. I have a few of the Reaper bears myself.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

The one on the right is a Reaper Bones dire bear. The one on the left is the companion of the elf in the middle - from Grenadier. The Reaper figure is really nice, but I was hoping it was a little closer in size to the Grenadier bear.




 I changed lights. Do these newer photos look a little too blue-ish? Or maybe too much light or glare?

Reaper has a bear to scale in one of the Animal Companions sets. Their other bears, sold individually, tend to be 'heroic' scale.

Really like both of the bears!  :-)

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

Thanks, I will look that one up.

I actually played a game. Just a small one. Finally tried a solo game of Dragon Rampant.

Love this 023. Read your blog write up as well. Your table is awesome! GP got me heading for a dragon rampant game but my hobby world came to a screeching halt awhile back. Have a little thread dedicated to the DR. I should be up and running again fairly soon.
This has got me revving again 😸

After recently receiving the Midlam Miniatures hobgoblins (and started to paint them already!) I decided to write a bit about how they fit into my Althammer setting...

Hey 023 ... finally read your blog post on Dragon Rampant.  Seems like you weren't thrilled with the rules.  My suggestion is to play it on a 4x6 table with some a good number of pieces of scenery.  I haven't played Dragon Rampant yet, although I've played quite a bit of Lion Rampant and usually on 4x6 tables with scenery setups, and sometimes using some of the scenarios in the book.  This has allowed for more maneuvering, and the scenarios can sometimes present a challenging game as well.  Lion Rampant and Dragon Rampant are similar, although each incarnation of Mersey's rules system is a bit different.  Pikemen's Lament lists can't really go with Lion Rampant, and then there are All The Kings Men, and Rebels & Patriots.  As an example, the last does away with the rule regarding once an activation roll is missed, a player's turn stops.  Not that R&P would be good for fantasy, but a person could switch up some of the rules to obtain a different flow to the game.
