Some years ago, my first feeble attempt at doing something interesting with Lego involved combining it the most satisfying of all nerdy pursuits, Dungeons and Dragons.
But more recently, my good chum Guy Himber (purveyor of fine Lego sweetmeats, and venerable curator of V&A Steamworks) has been giving the world of D&D his own unique Lego treatment.
