I need a Skald

Recommended Posts

Greetings All!

I have an upcoming game of Pathfinder and I am going to be playing a Skald.  For those who may not know, it is a combination between a barbarian and a bard (a bardbarian?)  I have always wanted to play as a bard but I also want to be true to my Viking roots and smash axes into skulls. Thus, Skald. 

 

I cannot find a mini that I think meets this criteria.  There is the "iconic" skald from the pathfinder line but frankly to me it seems so generic and lacking the essence of what I am looking for.  So I am turning to you all to see if anyone has suggestions. It can be bones or metal. I have browsed through the catalog but just have not found it.  Thanks for the help!

You could convert a Viking mini to carry a musical instrument.

 

Reaper has a pack with musical instruments.

And I stumbled along this guy, isn't he useful?

I see you know about the official skald mini, here is what the mini is based upon:

or do the add instrument to existing figure option:

I didn't see you already knew about the official Skald mini....

There is a horn (not quite a lur) on the back of the iconic skald mini, it looks rather cooler than first impressions would lead you to believe.  I bought one for the skald my husband is playing, mostly because he carries a horn of ghost sound anyway.  ::D:

Just thought of this one as well. If you want to go non-Reaper, look for Red Box Games. Scale is slightly smaller then Reaper but Tre Manor is uber when it comes all things Viking & such.

What kind of instrument and weapon do you picture? Is it human or not?

 

Human, Male, Don't know honestly about the instrument. I may consider the conversion option if I can't find exactly what I am looking for, I never considered that and frankly I didn't think I would be capable of doing it.

Can you give us details of what it is you're looking for?

Big? Lean?
Helmeted? Long-haired? Bearded?
Wearing a specific type of armor, specific weapons?

Seconding this.  Tre Manor is the god of Viking minis.

I suppose I imagine my Skald being somewhat like myself.  Large, bearded, genial and nonchalant about things.  He goes through life not generally caring what people think of him. I suppose I just don't want him to look directly threatening. Every barbarian I see is in a pose for attacking. My Skald just wants to drink and sing and laugh.   He knows he can kick everyone's backside but has no genuine desire to do so unless provoked.

Thanks, I will have to check that out!

I think Tharn Helmsunder manages to have an easygoing look to him.

You can probably cut off most of the helmet in his hand and turn the rest into a musical horn.

Ooo, he looks like he's in a Viking musical and is just bursting into song.  ::D:

Orchestral music swells ♫ and an echoing baritone rolls across the fjords as a great fellow crests over the hill, arms wide, charging forward:

 

♫  THE HILLS ARE ALIIIIIVE ♫ ....
