The Further Adventures of Malachai’s Cohort – Sword in the Stone

Every great adventure starts somewhere . . .

Journey to the place where Malachai’s Cohort was forged: Sword in the Stone tavern.

Two brothers make a shocking discovery while prospecting for precious metals. What they find is beyond either of their imaginations. To research the origins of their find they hire the Orb’s most famous explorer: Malachai Underhill.

This online graphical novel consists of 60 pages in 6 chapters, each with a photograph and running narrative to illustrate the tale.

I hope you enjoy it.

Awesome! Where did you get those booths with the dragon emblems on the back as well as that corner booth and the kitchen fireplace

They're all Grendel sets. The ones with the dragons on the back were from a set whose name escapes me at present. The kitchen set can still be found online from time to time, though Grendel products in general are a tad bit scarce lately because of slow production from the manufacturer.

Very cool setup. You've done a great job in creating an atmosphere, and your wealth of painted minis and terrain help to further the illusion.

I found myself recognizing most of the minis and terrain used, but some have stumped me. Where did you get the girl in the bathtub? And the lounging fellow in the Pub Snug setting escapes me.

All in all, it's a terrific series of photos showing an awesome gamescape.

Thanks, Kradlo. The "bathing beauty" as I like to call her is from the Victorian range by Eureka Miniatures out of Australia. I just picked her up and painted her a few weeks back. Very fast (and reasonably priced!) shipping to the U.S. I think I got my order in under 2 weeks. The two squatting story tellers are also Eureka minis.

The lounging fellow... you talking about the guy with a sword in one hand, beer mug in the other, one leg up on the red bench? I'm pretty sure they were from Heartbreaker's Fantasy resin line from a set called "Red Dragon Inn." (more info below).

I got that from eBay for a song! That piece along with the other long bench (the ones with the Red Dragons on the back) and a table (not pictured in the current tavern setup) were all painted and I picked them up for about $8. A few touch ups here and there and they worked out just fine.

What's interesting about that set is that I just picked up a couple more pieces on eBay that seem to be related to those benches with the dragons. The first set is a set with 3 sets of wooden stairs--2 short, 1 taller, the tallest one has the exact same dragon on the back of it. It's called the Heartbreaker #2104 "Grand Staircase".

The other set I picked up (from the same eBay seller) is called "The Game Room." Also by Heartbreaker. This one has a "rat race" board that looks like a miniature horse track but between the wooden dividers are rats. It also has an absolutely hilarious "Russian roulette" table that features four "player seats" and a "dealer's seat". In the center of the table is a crossbow mounted to a swivel pivot (doesn't actually swivel since the whole piece is cast in resin). On the side of the table is inscribed "Wheel of Misfortune". ROFL

In that same set is a wall with hand and feet shackles (wooden wall with LOTS of little pock marks in it from throwing knives and axes). Mounted next to the shackles are a bunch of throwing knives and axes. Oh yeah--and did I mention the mop and bucket for cleaning up the um, "mess"? ::grin::

The last piece in that set is a very large hourglass mounted to a wall. One would release a latch, turn the glass upside down, and latch it back into place while the sands ran out. Not sure what the use for that is/was but it looks pretty cool.
