More RPG Townsfolk!

I’ve had some time to take pictures of some of my many npc’s and monsters used in our RPG lately. Last Week it was the Warrior priests and Mordheim Zombies.

Now it is time for some townsfolk!

First off is Laril Silverhand, Female Elven Blacksmith sculpted by Bobby Jackson. Finally a miniature that’s not a macho dwarf or human! A female elf without boob armor and toned muscles from the hard labour is a rare sight indeed, and she was fun to paint! I am still learning how to paint white hair, but she looks great in real life! My husband was able to mount her on a cobblestone base, which is always a challenge since the miniature comes with a large chunk of metal as a base.

 

Halfling Dungeons and Dragons

Last not but not least, we have the tiny halfling/gnome from a Dungeons & Dragons Collector’s box called Qesnef, Ogre Mage. The miniature is long out of print and not even on the front of the box, but he is so cool and has got so much character, that I just had to paint him! I haven’t even assembled the Ogre :)
He is actually the Ogre Mage in halfling disguise/form. He was a bunch of fun to paint, and I hope we will see his character unfold in our RPG!

Here is the cover of the box.

The resin varies a lot between the collector’s boxes. I have quite a few boxes in storage and the quality is close to Forge World on most of them. This one was very soft and was like a weird combination of Forge World resin and Reaper Bones. He can bend around the base, but is still incredibly detailed.

Carol, the not-so-Christmas Bard

Phew, time just flies when you are having fun! Been spending a whole lot of time playing Divinity: Original Sin 2 (the best game I have ever played in my 25 years of playing computer games!)

I’m totally blown away, and I have already gotten so much inspiration from the game for Rpg sessions, characters/npc’s and miniature colours!

I do have this mini ready for display! This is the Carol, the Christmas Bard from Reaper sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I chose to not paint her as a Christmas elf and instead painted her in vivid colours, worthy of a true bard. The colours are actually inspired by Dandelion from the Witcher franchise. The outfit from the 3rd Game installment to be precise!

She is perfect for our new campaign! And looking forward to having her around in Talabecland!

I didn’t notice the monkey until after I started painting her, so I painted a little subtle :)

Damiel from Pathfinder RPG

About time I showed you another one of my heroes from our Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. This is Damiel the Elf Alchemist. A very entertaining class to play and finally you can use potions without having to banish them afterwards.

Damiel the Alchemist

Damiel is a really cool mini sculpted by Bobby Jackson. His hair looks a lot better “in person”.

The dagger thingie is a bit fragile, though it hasn’t broken off or anything. Here is a few more pictures of the elf:

Painting the potions was a lot of fun. I usually don’t paint flasks and potions in bright reds and oranges, but I tried to make him resemble the artwork as best I could (as with my other Pathfinder miniatures)

Here is the original artwork I based the miniature on:

Myriam the Mystic

As I am always scouting Reaper Miniatures for new and interesting minis for myself or King Games, I couldn’t help but notice the resemblance between Sister Lana, Healer and Myriam Jahzia from Diablo 3 – Reaper of Souls expansion. I am assuming that Bobby Jackson saw her as some kind of inspiration as she is quite similar, down to the small details of her staff, headpiece and dress.

I tried to paint her as Myriam as we needed an enchanter and jeweler for our campaign in Nordland!

Myriam 1

I chose to paint her hair blonde instead of grey, as if it was a youthful version of her. Whether it is her wit, sense of humour or simply the size of her bosom – she has taken our Bright Wizard Viktor by storm.

Here is a piece of artwork and a screenshot of Myriam.

I added a few more gems to the miniature to make her look like a jeweler :)
