Those look awesome! I love your take on some of those figures... Albino Sorceress is really cool!

Also, your treatment of bone and wood and the cloak on the dragon born is great. I gotta up my game to run with the big dogs!

Cheers!

Minis - Figures - Terrain Etc

Hey Guys Got "back" into RPGs a little over a year ago... after a 30 year hiatus. My son found my old boxes of "stuff" and wanted to learn how to play. I searched the net, and after trying out several of the newer games/rules... we settled on C&C. Of course, to play "proper", you need minis, and I h...

I read this post and scratched my head... If its a powerful NPC that can't be killed... then use your Castle Keeper Judo to make sure it doesn't die...

Re: Printing Differences in Player's Handbook

Well... shoot! I shouldda bought the flip book!... But I gotta say, they are making it pretty confusing to the non-initiated. Printing instead of Version.. and now the "Flip Book". I envisioned a spiral bound notebook thing with a concise set of rules without the fluff! This noob is slowly getting u...

Re: Printing Differences in Player's Handbook

See... I wish there had been this thread before I bought my books... Impatiences wins again! Thanks for the descriptions... Do I have the pictures right with the printings in the OP? I think I may have the 1st and 3rd switched... Anyway, I think I would have been a 4th Edition fan... I don't mind bl...

Dead Links at the C&C store... what is up with that?

Didn't know where else to put this, but why so many dead links in the Troll Lord Online store? At least, when I go to this page (which is from the stores home front > Products > Castles and Crusades you get http://www.trolllord.com/cnc/index.html# And click on any of the links to adventures or books...

Re: Putting my miniatures together...

Part of my problem is that I have visited miniature specific forums and seen some really outstanding, show winning quality work.... And then compare my Minis to those... which is unfair to my skill set. I have painted, in my life, maybe a total of 25 minis (8 before 1985) and the 17 above that I did...

Re: Putting my miniatures together...

I've noticed that there isn't a forum section for minis or gaming accessories... and there probably is a reason that this noob doesn't know about... But since this thread has survived... I'll add to it. 1st off... I SUCK at painting... I am a better art critic than I am an artist... so be it. But I ...

Re: Castles & Crusades is the SHIZ-NIGHT!

I am one of the old school D&D 1st edition players getting back into it (after decades of being away). Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my son (10) "discovered" my OLD D&D stuff... I started playing at his age in 1977 with some of the older kids on my street.... Anyway, I started checking into new ver...

Re: How do you have your players roll hit dice?

Its been a while, but I ran a group once that we tried to go hardcore as much as possible. One of the more seasoned Characters was playing a Fighter... and he rolled 2 for his Hit Points. We all groaned and told him to roll "again" but he said, "no... I'll just work with this". It ended up being one...

Printing Differences in Player's Handbook

Newbie here, and first post. I am getting back into RPGs after many decades (played in the late 70s & Early 80s) and heard some good things about Pathfinder so I took a chance and got a good deal on some of the core books. Well, I got em, read through them, and it really wasn't the direction I wante...
