Very exciting news for me: In about a month, I will take a hiatus from DMing and actually play in a few games. Other people will run the weekly RPG show at my house, and that's spectacular. First up, we'll finally get the Firefly game going that I painted up minis for some time ago (see them here if you're interested). Then, once the "pilot" episode of that game is over (we'll come back to it from time to time for two- or three-session "episodes;" not only is it in the same 'verse as Firefly, it's also going to be plotted like a TV series), we'll start a Dragonlance campaign. I should say, "the" Dragonlance campaign. We aren't using the iconic characters--no Raistlin here--but the DM will run the classic modules. I'm totally stoked for this! Now, I just have to paint a bunch of things. This WIP will show the process of the PC minis, and I may throw in a few other things as I work on them (my main job, aside from PCs, is the old Ral Partha box of Draconians). So, here's the five initial PCs. All Reaper minis at this point, but we have a few players that haven't made characters yet. Here you can see Alaine, Jester, Ezren, Lem and Dub in various stages of primer, awaiting paint. So far I don't have names for all the PCs, so I'll refer to them as archetypes (rogue, female fighter, etc) or by their minis' names until I do. Alaine and Dub will pretty well go to paint as-is; they'll be the party's female fighter/Knight of Solamnia and our ranger-rogue. Ezren is going to lose his staff, but we don't yet know what this wizard will replace it with. Lem will play the part of our kender. Happy-go-lucky, blithe...annoying as all get-out...kender use a forked weapon called a hoopak and wear their hair in topknots. So while the attitude of this guy (thanks to Derek!) is perfect, the acoutrements needed work. Here you can see the initial greenstuffing. Obviously I have some sanding and polishing to do once the GS cures on the hoopak, but I'm pretty pleased with the topknot. Jester will henceforth be known as Gerwin Southwall. Gerwin is my PC, a hereditary scion of the Knights of Solamnia who would rather keep his fellows alive than seek personal glory on the battlefield. As such, he's become a competent field medic in a time with no clerical powers, and has picked up a footman's weapon, the spear, instead of a knightly sword. For close combat he prefers a crowsbeak. I've removed the sword from this mini and replaced it with a spear. The axe was removed from his left hand, and will eventually be replaced with a medic's bag. The scabbard has been modified (along with the axehead) to put a crowsbeak on his belt, and the pile of skulls GS'd over to become a pile of rocks. More to come as it happens!
