Dads and Daughters D&D Characters

When 5th Edition D&D came out, I gathered some of my old high school D&D buddies and started a very occasional gaming group. Since we live a few hours drive away, we've only met about once a quarter, but we make a whole weekend of it. After our first game session, we incorporated our teenage daughters and nieces into the game. We call it "Old Guys D&D" or "Dads & Daughters D&D", depending on our mood. I've been DMing, and we've been having a blast!

I've been painting some figures for character models. These are all from Reaper and have been a joy to paint. I've used Reaper paints and Vallejo washes. Simple photos from my iPhone, but I think you get the idea. I still need to finish the bases, but wanted to share some WIP photos.

My daughter's elven druid character.
One friend's daughter's wizard.
A friend's dwarf cleric.
A friend's human fighter.
A friend's halfling wizard.
There are three more in the party. I will post them when they are finished. I hope you like these. Feel free to comment below.

Until next time, carry on!

Pig Faced Orcs

Here are the old school pig faced orcs I received from my friend. They are fun and take me back to middle school days of battling over the floor with our home grown rules. Good times!

For the sake of nostalgia I do not plan to repaint these figures. My buddy painted them over 35 years ago, so who am I to judge? I will likely mount them onto 1 inch bases for ease of gaming with Song of Blades and Heroes. I'm thinking I might even use 1 inch fender washers for simplicity and to not distract too much from the old school look. Anyway, I hope you enjoy them! Comment below...I'd love to hear from you.

Until next time, carry on!
