My camera had the worst time focusing on the kobold section of the build, wish the shot was clearer. Looks ace in person.

Looks great! :)

I especially love the Fisher Price rowboat (or whatever toy it is); I use some too :)

Pretty some of these were posted sometime back but here was one of the last Battles my group undertook before Covid locked us down.

The party, with a number of special allies, approaches a location that had been brought to their attention as being worthy of "checking out" and encountered a Spirit Tree that spewed forth undead near an old dwarven burial mound. The battle really occurred outside near the Spirit tree and swampy water, the discussions with the dwarven spirits was really mostly discussion and no combat resulted, due to actions of the party before that point.

The Burial Chamber was built into the Escarpments and I was able to open it up by removing each 6x6 forest floor tiles one by one as the party entered and could see further. It was a cool game time effect and let me combine sets quite nicely I think.

Most of the time I just do not remember to take any pictures along the way in encounters, so some the more epic ones gets left on the table.
