Greetings All,

I'm Victorious Secret and I'm new to the community.

I'm looking for the likeness of the following four villians in Reaper miniatures. Can anyone help me please?

Artemis Entreri (I'm aware that D&D miniature have a plastic version, however I prefer pewter.)
Jarlaxle Baenre
Pasha Pook
Rassiter the Wererat (I prefer the miniature looks more like human than a rat.)

I thank you for your time and appreciate your input :)

Have you checked the Figure Finder yet? Reaper's Figure Finder

Just off the top o' me egg, I'm pretty sure you can come fairly close to the first two if you're willing to settle for close-enough or you have some skill at conversions... I don't remember what the second two look like.

For Artemis, at least as I remember the cover illustration from the last time I looked at one of the books, there should be a few characters whose armor is close enough to represent his general appearance (not all of them wearing cloaks), although the particular hairstyle might be a problem if the mini doesn't have a hood covering the head. They might require a weapon swap, which isn't really that hard to do.

For Jarlaxle, there are several swashbuckling type figures in the Reaper line-up that might work for an elf, but you may have to improvise on his big feathered hat...

Thank you for your reply Mad Jack, I appreciate your help.

Prior to asking the question I did a little research myself. I've already look through the catalog of Reaper but still I thought I might left out a few figures that I'm not aware of.

Perhaps I was not clear of my question. These characters are from the Icewind Dale and Dark Elf Triology of Forgotten Realm by R. A. Salvatore.

Artemis Entreri-esque character is actually the easiest to find, I've already found a few that are similar but still could use some expert's opinion. The following link is the one I think it's the most suitable.

Jarlaxel is a bald, eye-patched fighter with a feathered hat. I know there are plenty of figures with feathered hat, however, none of them are bold (I can sculpt the eyepatch HEHE).

Pasha Pook is a fat merchant-like character with a cane or crossbow (weapons can be swap and its no problem), but since he came from the souther desert city, I would suspect he wears a turban or fez of somekind. I've found one close:

Rassiter is a half human, half rat like fighter with cape and boots... so far I have not come across such figure yet.

Perhaps someone here with more experience in figure collecting or painting can give me some valuable direction or opinion. Thanks again.

I believe there was a Menzoberanzan (sp?) metal set out a long time back. I forget who all was in it, but I'm sure there are some characters in there you are looking for.

*EDIT*

Found these on ebay. Guen, Drizzt and Jarlaxle and some drow, not the ones you are looking for:

Would this guy serve as Pook? 2433 Omar Al-Kafour

I suspect you won't find anything very close to Jarlaxle or Rassiter. For Jarlaxle you could probably achieve the look you want if you are willing to do some conversion work. I believe Hasslefree sells packs of blank, bald heads and there is a feathered hat in the Reaper hat pack (3202).

Thanks guys for your help!

Djinn Wing:

I saw the Menzo set on eBay too. It is a rather expensive set. I would get this set but not sure if it is "Jarlaxel" in the picture... is that hair running down by the side of his cheek?

Alchemist:

Omar Al-kafour looks perfect for Pook! Thanks alot!!

Now the challenge is to find the Ratman...

Very Solid Choice, the sword especially looks like Charon's Claw, but i'd replace the short sword/dagger with a slightly more ornate one. One of the weapons packs has it, but I cannot remember off hand which. Good Luck!
