D&D Monster Manual 39: Dungeon of the Mad Mage – Trobriand and Flying Swords

D&D Dungeon of the Mad Mage - Trobriand

HADOUKEN!

More D&D stuff being churned out in the name of both easy wins and getting ready to play through the upcoming boxes. Today we have Trobriand, which according to a D&D Wiki is/was a wizard also known as “The Metal Mage” who apparently specialised in metal golems and listening to lots of Slayer. I think this particulat model reprsents a Golem that he has posessed in some manner, which I guess explains the fireballs.

Pretty simple paint. I added the touch of gold to the trellis and the glowy bits around the head-area to make it a little more interesting, but let’s face it, it’s a pretty uninspiring model so I wasn’t going to put too much effort in. Good enough for the tabletop was the aim here!

The other models I’m bundling in here obviously don’t deserve a post of their own. They’re not terrible, but nor are they amazing or exciting. We have some (low-) Flying Swords. Whoosh!

Aaaaand… that’s that. Another 4 models towards the eventual playthrough of the Mad Mage board game.

  1. Great work on all mate, the Golemn has elements that if carried all over the model would have made it more ornate and inspiring, but guess we can’t have everything ! LOL

  2. Love that steampunk Golem, and the swords crack me up – I immediately thought shark fin, and now I can’t unsee Dr. Evil being pleased with his new ‘sharks with frickin’ swords’ 😂 🗡🦈

    • Yeah. When I saw them my thought was very much “how the fuck am I supposed to paint those?”
      I now have three beholders on the desk to paint that have a very similar issue, though at least theirs look a little less like sharks’ teeth or fins!
