D&D Tiefling Warlock miniature

I‘ve been invited to play in another D&D group – they’ve been playing for a couple of years and were looking for a ranged striker. I created a fun character – a Tiefling Warlock named Trichinosis Carcenogina Hyacinth (although she prefers to be called Trixie). She was raised by Halflings so she seems oddly friendly and cutesy, but she’s got a temper and can deal out boatloads of (mostly fire-based) damage.

The group that I’m joining plays with minis, so I went on the hunt for one that would aptly represent my character. The illustratons in the official D&D books show some pretty cool rams horns:

but the mini’s that are available looked a little odd:

So I picked up the Arcane Heroes 2 package and took the main body of the female Eladrin Scorceror and the forearms of the male Half-elven Warlock, and glued them together, then added some Fimo horns and painted it all…

A 5 km Race

Kathryn Ann & I have been jogging/walking a lot at the Irving Nature Park, so when our friend Sandra asked us if we wanted to do the Canda Day Race in Grand Bay, we figured it’d be a good time to try a little 5km race. It’s been a few years since I’ve done any races, and Kathryn Ann is running for the first time and had been asking about races. It was a very hilly course and it was a lot warmer than what we’re used to jogging in, but it was a fun morning.
