Every dungeon needs some vermin to fight, here is a sampling of a few 3d printed miniatures to torment your player characters with.

If the roper and rats dont do the job then

A lot of those are really disgusting (in a good way)!

Perhaps I need some carrion crawlers?

Actually I think the Doctor is needed most.

He has ways to deal with autons.

So the red worm thing is the best I could come up with from a old monster from basic edition, ( not in the books) but a module I was running for my son ( b12 Kings festival had one, so I printed one, also printed a Thoul, bet you never heard of that !)

I'm not into role playing games.

It always baffled me, if you have a games master, why on earth do you need big thick books of rules. How hard is it to say "you hit it," or "you loose your grip and fall." Or the other way, why have a games master if you have big thick books of rules.

I got in trouble for creating charts and more dice rolls for creating towns as you go. Apparently rules are bad and an enthusiastic DM is bad. Who knew.

A games master helps keep thing secret, I guess. But, then why have rule books? Games masters are supposed to be the creative ones, are they not.


Insects look ok. And rat swarm. But nothing you can't get from almost anyone.

The insects look like they came out of a $2 USD kids Toy bag. So, theres another idea for cheat figures. Have a look in the Toy idle of your local discount stores. Especially if you need lots. Check eBay also. Spiders, beetles, ants, all types of creepy crawlies. Also other Toy animals that may work.
