Conquest of Bloodsworn Vale: Pathfinder Module Playing

"By the Gods, that took for ever. Haven't felt tired like this in a while. I really need a good long sss...aay is that singing I hear?" His face lights up as he notices the tavern. "We should probably all drop by and give them the news that we've arrived."

 

 

Incidentally, what's the mood of the tower guards when they see us? Surprise? Relief? What are we carrying in those wagons by the way?

They are at first cautious, asking for names but the caravan crew comes to your aid, the guards seem almost giddy as they watch the caravan move in. The shipment contained various adult beverages, and variouse salted meats, cheeses, and, non perishable vegetable, including carrots, potato, and, Radishes. The third carried various chests filled with different metals, mostly steel, and iron, but a small chest contained silver.

"roast mutton sounds good. As does the rasberry mead." He said with a nod before turning back to his fellow travelers, "shall we see about rooms?"

Lavanliril nods. "Yes, I should really like to change before dinner. Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer not to perform in armor." She chuckles. "Of course, that is in part to do with audiences being easier to win over when they think you pleasing on the eyes. Also, if I can get a nice chunk of meat to keep him company, Melimo might well prefer curling up in a room's corner to the noisy environs of the common room." She proceeds in the direction of the bar, hoping to speak with the innkeep before too many of the patrons pay enough attention to realize it is not just a large dog. The kind of unusual company she's travelling with might prove a benefit in that regard.

The man at the bar is a portly man he has a wide smile and is bald. He wears an apron with a boar skull painted on it. He appears buisy but turns to you at as soon as you approach. "So what can I do for you?" He says in a booming voice, he is currently filling five mugsof beer for a party of guards at the bar. "Is ye stayin' get the night?"

Rowan nods her head "Yes I would like a room. I could use a meal and drink. I also need a meal of some sort for my friend."

 

She gestured to the weasel as she said friend

"roast mutton should do" He said with a shrug of his shoulders "and I also would like a room. private if I can, shared if I must"

Rowan grinned "Same as anybody else. As my new friend notes meat would be appreciated."

 

The weasel happily gnawed on the fat, making little sounds of pleasure at the taste. "I shall take whatever is available for a room."

Lavanliril smiles at the man at the bar. "As for me, good man, I should like a room and a chance to freshen up. Mightn't be opportune to have a bath now, but a washbasin would be swell. Oh, and I could do with a nice chunk of raw meat for my friend, plus... oh, I'll have the day's special once I've freshened up. Which reminds me, do you ken there'd be any interest in some entertainment from your regulars? I should wager you don't get bards hereabouts that often." 

 

She grins and bats her lashes. "Least of all pretty elven lasses, I should wager. Which begs the question, if you'd care for me to perform, which I'd be happy to for just a drink or three to keep the voice smooth, would you prefer a nice and clean routine fit for a stuck-up nobleman's home, something with just a little bit of spice as most should be able to stomach, or a performance that's a bit lewd and might raise more than just spirits with the lads?"

Ooc (pg pls) "Don't ye worry, we got plenty o rooms at five copper a silver a night bath'el cost ya an extra copper, as of ets dem are free wit de room. Drinks cost extra cept water that is.

"What can I get ya" he throws another slab of fat to Lavanlaril "her dog can hav' that, let the people have the meat."

Lavanliril nods, catching the fat with a look of mild disgust, but shrugging and using it to beckon her dog - quite happy to leave it at that - to follow. "Right, clean it is." She digs out two silver pieces and puts them on the bar. "This will cover the first night and some drinks then, yes? So which room can I take? I really would like to freshen up a bit. Unlike my canine companion, I'm not too keen on handling large chunks of  fat. Wouldn't want anyone to have that excuse for saying my routine reeks, ey?"

      Hi Guys,
       
      I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly.
       
      If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes.
      If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

      So I had an occasion to create a new D&D character after a brief hiatus from playing, and I wound up rolling a half orc ranger named Logar Quickarrow, a vociferously proud member of the Bison Clan.  Naturally, being the conversion obsessed sort of person I am, I was obliged to fabricate a proper miniature for him.  I apologize for a few slightly blurry pictures, as I'm still trying to get used to my current camera (which is cleverly hidden inside my phone).
       
      After canvassing Reaper's catalog for half orcs and various iterations thereof, I quickly decided that Skreed Gorewillow by Derek Schubert was by far my favorite.  It was merely a matter of transforming him from a spell caster into a ranger.
       
      For reference, here is the miniature as it comes from the factory:
       

       
      The first step was to remove both the dagger and the burning flask and make way for his new weapons.  Rather than dig around in my parts bin for a matching set of new hands or sculpting a pair from scratch, I decided to simply bore out the existing hands and carve away all the pewter I didn't need and shape it to fit his new weapons.  My character uses a shield in his offhand in melee combat, so to reflect this I also cut away the front two flasks on his belt to make room for a shield which will be hung there.
       

       
      Next, I dug around in my parts bin for some suitable weapons.  I found an appropriately aggressive looking sword blade which was orphaned from its moorings, however after trimming away a portion of the lower half and rounding it out with a file I created a shaft for it which easily fit inside the hole I had drilled in his hand.  I like my figures to have appropriately shaped scabbards for their weapons, so I traced out the outline of the blade onto a sheet of styrene and cut it out as a starting point for making him a matching scabbard.
       

       
      Next, I selected and appropriate bow and quiver.  I also dug out a small shield, as my character uses a shield in his the offhand in melee combat.  I drilled and pinned the quiver so that it can be mounted on his back where the figure's original sword would have gone.
       

       
      After test fitting the shield, I came to the conclusion that it just didn't sit very well on the front of his belt.  So to cover up the damage I did earlier I simply sculpted a satchel where the flasks used to be.  I thought about cutting off the empty dagger sheath from the original figure and replacing it with a completely new dagger, however instead I simply sculpted a small nub at the top and called it a day.  The idea was that the dagger fits almost entirely inside the sheath itself, much like a dark age Seax or a traditional Finnish hunting knife.  At this point I've also drilled and pinned his feet in preparation for basing.  I've also tweaked the shape of his right hand by filing and carving it a bit more so that it closely fits around the handle of the bow I picked out for him.
       

       
      Next, I created a base using a very handy texture stamp made by Happy Seppuku.  Our campaign takes place in a rather wintery sort of place, so I will go back later and add some small piles of snow to reflect this.
       

       
      In an attempt to mirror the design aesthetic of his dagger sheath, I sculpted the sword scabbard to match with a raised bulge on top of a flatted base.  I left it otherwise plain, as I intend to hang the shield on top of the scabbard much like a medieval buckler. 
       
       
       
      Next, I flattened out the nub of his sword with a pair of smooth nosed pliers to create a rough disk shape to serve as the basis for a pommel.  I also sculpted a flap on top of his satchel.
       

       
      I then sculpted a fairly basic hilt, using a combination of styles mixing a "viking" type crossguard with a later medieval style disk pommel with a peen block.  I also sculpted a small throat around the top of the scabbard to suggest that it is actually hollow on the inside
       

       
      After test fitting the buckler, I realized that a portion of the scabbard was just barely visible underneath.  It was probably overkill, but I sculpted a rudimentary belt attachment to fill this gap (because I'm weird that way and can't let things like this go).  I then went ahead and glued the shield in place.
       

       
      I then glued the bow into his hand and glued the quiver on his back.  I had filed out the opening in his left hand specifically to fit the bow I had chosen for him, so it didn't take much to get it to fit snugly in place.  The bottom end of the bow rests directly against the lower part of the figure's clothing, which serves as a useful second anchor point for glueing (he is a tabletop figure after all).
       

       
      For the final step, I took the last bits of putty I had mixed and put them in little piles on his base, which I then stippled to make them look like little piles of snow.  Next up is painting!

      Left home in a hurry for a family emergency. Grandfather having heart trouble so I’m hanging out with him helping out.
       
      I didn’t bring any minis or paint so I found a local game store and picked up a few. I went to hobby lobby and michaels for some brushes and paint. 
       
      The paint was extremely cheap but hey if it doesn’t work out I can do something else. Space for travel is super limited (motorcycle) so I don’t want much to carry. 
       
      I brushed on some foundation white from model color. Since I don’t have any skin tone I had to experiment making it. I am happy with the results. I’m not quite sold on the color for the armor yet.

      In the 5E game I recently started played, one of the characters created a halfling bard.  I had yet to paint Lem from the Kickstarter so he received a quick paint for the tabletop last week.  Of course, that player didn't show up to last weeks game but Lem is ready when needed.  Now that I look at it I see there are a few little bits that I missed but I doubt I go back and touch him up.

      Here's another post.
      Hellakin languished on my shelf of shame for about 5 years.  He was intended as an entry into a forum contest for painting "little people."
      Life got in the way.  I recently decided to finish him, in a little bit of a rushed fashion.
       
      He sat and sat at the basecoat stage.  I struggled with figuring out how to do his cloak black.
      I am not too happy with it.  It reads dark blue, as I'm trying to paint black without cycling up through gray, as you'll see here:
       
       
       
      I'm more pleased with the gold nmm on the knife than the steel.
      But, I tried to really suggest he's in a dark area by the shadowed part of the blade remaining nearly black.
      Here are some more shots of him.
       

       
      I'm pretty pleased with the hair color and face:
       

       
      He's got a very intense stare.
      The eyebrows didn't please me very much.
      The base is a "hollow" round base with a circle of cobblestone patterned sheet styrene from a model railroad supply hobby shop that I painted up to give him a feeling of being in a dungeon.
      If I wanted to spend more time on him, I'd paint his toenails and fiddle more with the knife.  I originally had a thought to try to paint shadows and light on the base to make it seem like he's sneaking up on someone to backstab from the shadows.  I gave up on that ;)
      Overall, he fills a missing niche among my painted figures of an iconic halfling rogue.
