Miscellaneous dungeon dressing

At some point I really will finish painting up all the furniture and whatnot that I have for D&D. Most recently I did a weapons rack from the Heroquest boardgame and a small nautilus shell (or ram’s horn?) on a stand, which I am not sure the origins of — I think I got it from someone discarding their collection of lead? It is probably something that came in a Grenadier boxed set.  They often threw in interesting accessories like that.

Nest to the Heroquest elf for scale — those are BIG weapons!

A close-up of the horn or nautilus shell.  The stand is decorated with frog feet on the “legs” and clam shells holding the horn/shell in place.

Again for scale, here it is next to a Heritage knight.

Lastly here’s a bigger piece of scenery from a Warhammer Fantasy Battles boxed set.  It had a ton of goblins and dwarves, and some other nice scenery, so although I haven’t played WFB in years and years, it seemed like a good buy.  This is apparently some kind of fence or boundary marker made by dwarves.

One of the nice little touches is that someone left their stuff leaning against it, probably a sentry.  There is a pipe & pouch, stein, and an axe and shield — the last suggesting the sentry either left in haste or was killed unawares.

The same set came with a troll who is throwing a section of this boundary.  I should paint him some time too.

  1. I really like the weapon’s rack and the shell vessel. Both have lots of character. You painted them very nicely with lots of colour variation to point out different textures, materials and details. Well done!

    • Thanks! You are too kind. I’ve seen you blog and you work is stunning, so I really appreciate the encouragement.
