  1. Very cool. I dig the "Shrapnel Rat". Sounds and smells and such are easy to forget to describe so I like having a couple done up on a table, so I like this stuff.

    1. Thanks Pierce, glad you find it useful. I tried to come up with some unique monsters. I plan on writing up some of the monsters and some of the other stuff on the tables. The Shrapnel Rat was an idea I took from the Gears of War 2 video game. I envisioned them as Dire Rats that explode like mines as they approach their victims.
