Role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons evolved out of various tactical board games; in these games, the players moved their pieces around the board, attacked each other or defended, and generally played wars out turn by turn

With current RPGs tending to involve at least some combat (certainly, the ones we play do), it tends to be easier to visualize what's going on if there's a battle mat out in front of the players with pieces representing the combatants, much like the original tactical board games. Except that these pieces tend to be player-characters, individuals with their own sense of style and...

And so, I think painting the lead for them is far more interesting than painting a giant army of standardized pieces. It's an art form. Thus, this gallery.

The links on the sidebar take you to various sets of minis - all of them belong to a specific campaign, except for a few of the unclassifieds which I painted for the fun of it, and to learn what I was doing.
