Unreleased Dreamblade - Lost along the way

Today's look back at unreleased Dreamblade designs features one piece from each of the first four sets. With each of these I eagerly anticipated seeing the final miniature, imagining ahead of time that these would be my favorite above all other (no, really). Looking back now I begin to understand why they may have been dropped.

"Sword in the Stone" was designed for the very first set of Dreamblade. It was described as being an object. Looking back I imagine it was designed in the same vien as the Scarab Warcharm. Not necessarily a creature but would aid in other ways. It's aspect was Valor.

"Bound Rider" was a spec piece I came up with and submitted while working on Baxar's War. It was accepted, but fell through the cracks along the way. No idea what aspect it would or did have. It came to me one night as I was trying to fall asleep, it kept me up for hours as I drew it in my mind. I figured that was a good sign ...not good enough, I guess ;)

"Hairy Monster" was designed for Chrysotic Plague. I really thought it had a fun look and feel and would make a cool miniature. I had hopes it would have ended up being one of the really big minis like some of the pieces in Baxar's War that I designed. It's aspect was Passion.

"Hypnotic Freak" was designed for Anvilborn. Again, I thought this one had a really cool look and feel and would make a great mini. It was unlike many of the others I had designed for the game (to me at least). I really liked the little dangling harlequin that I put on the bottom back of her dress. It's aspect was Madness.
