Fistful of Lead: Gelatinous Cubed

Recently, I was bidding on an iconic monster mini on eBay when I came up with a homebrew alternative: Ingredients Knox gelatin Cooking oil spray Square mold Victim miniature Directions Coat the inside of the mold lightly with cooking oil spray.

Fistful of Lead: All the Monsters on a Budget

The Bromor Hunter is no exception. If this dwarf, with his multi-barreled rifle propped over one shoulder, is a mere hunter then I’d hate to see his prey.
