So I'm playing in the Kingmaker PbP run by Vil-hatarn. My character is an exiled Chelaxian noble (well, he's been disowned so I guess that's former noble), and because I like to rationalize my mini purchases (it's not a disorder damn it!), I am trying to find a figure to paint up to represent him (as characters that have painted minis roll better). Alexi Dromange is Shelaxian as I have said but has been training to be a Aldori Swordlord (fighter type). His main weapon is the Aldori Dueling sword (a curved longsword) and he does wear armor. He doesn't normally use a shield or a second weapon in his off hand. He tends to be well dressed. I havn't decided on facial hair, most likely clean shaven (if bearded a neat goatee or trimmed beard). I ideas I have had so far: 2144 Eric Swift Blade: Pros Curved sword, clothing could be fancy. Cons: no armor (but maybe his about town wear?) and I'm not digging the 'do rag. 2186 Alfred Redlute: cut out the lute, curve the sword, could work 3065 Kellen, Nobleman Adventurer: cut out the dagger, paint the armor fancy maybe (Alexi will most likely wear heavier armor but could come close) 3556 Ashlan Fell Thrush: Looks great except for the shield. Cool guy why do I not have him? Added to wish list. 60119 Andoran Steel Falcon: Is the shield on his back a separate piece. If so a weapon swap and he can work. 60127 Hell Knight Captain: Ohhh, this could be the one. No conversion needed clean cut (as long as I don't paint stubble). 60148 Sandru Vhiski another useable figure So what do you guys think? Anyone I over looked? I'm fine with other manufacturers as well, I'm just more familiar with Reaper.
With all the black on the model, contrasted by the stark white hair, this was very difficult to photograph. I need to dig up a good mid-grey backdrop for something like this. edit 12/15/13: new pics! Damn that speck of dust on the shoulder. I'll take another round of pics once I get a better backdrop. The blacks really do go right to Pure Black and the hair has some interesting blue shadows that are pretty much lost. I think I'm also hobbled a bit by my ancient camera, the dern thing is 8 years old now! I'm quite happy with how it came out overall. I feel my gold getting better, I'm starting to get a feel for where to lay in the highs and lows. A few stumbles here and there, but as usual I learned a lot painting this one. I think it does a pretty nice job at portraying Storm, too! [url=WIP]http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47459-60129-chelaxian-infernal-binder-ororo/]WIP thread here
