Or to be more precise "Balrogath" since they were rather Balrogkind. ;)
I always loved the design of the LOTR Balrog miniatures and I have several different of them that I use for representing D&D Balors on the battlefield. But since my group has an average party level of 15 it might have been overkill to put them against 2 Challenge Rating 20 monsters on top of everything else that was going on in this dungeon. So I created a lesser version of the Balor/Balrog which just had a CR of 18 and they fought them individually instead of at the same time. And even though this was a very hard dungeon no one needed to be resurrected afterwards. I like it when that happens. :)

The part of my campaign where the characters are searching for four Soul Gems to prevent an undead Necramoncer from rising from his grave is almost over. The following pictures illustrate their struggle to get the third one:

Bravo, man! I always look forward to your pictures -- the paint jobs on your minis is always spectacular, your layouts are always really interesting, and your photos are always awesome dramatic little vignettes. Fantastic stuff.

Great, great job.

Love the idea of a being able to break out from a Catacomb set and into a River set that leads into a Cavern set....
Brilliant.
I will be officially stealing that idea for something I run later in the year.

Absolutely stunning! Beautiful!
You are making it nigh impossible for me to resist buying dwarven forge sets while im waiting for my kickstarter sets (im still a dwarven forge-virgin, at 0 sets...) !!

Superb miniatures too, awesome setup, goes so well together.

And so the addiction sets in. Believe me, that is completely normal. Dwarven Forge is simply to awesome to resist. :)
Or as we like to say to all Newbies: Welcome to the addiction! ;)

It seems I accidentally deleted the first image of the dungeon (the one without the miniatures in it) when I edited the first post so here it is again:



I also edited the first post again so you can also find the "pre-miniature picture" image at the top of the post. :)
