Had to get it done! Featuring the Nolzur's Vardo, the bones War Dog (77422) as Schubert duVere; Ardellen the Ranger (03512) as Friedrich Johannes; Torin the Stealthy (02045) as Norvil Rogers; Original Recipe Seoni (60034) as Theophany Black; and Hosilla (60172) as Valima Dincalli. The Saturday Morning Commedia presents: "Schubert duVere and the Riddling Engine." "'Tis said by the magistrate that the common folk report the manor be haunted by spectres!" "Come then, comrades, let us venture forth severally, in search of clews!" "JESU! 'Tis chronicled here that a mountebank from this town devised an art to produce the likenesses of shades! By use of a magic lantern and smoke of a curious nature..." "Egads! A hidden door; certes no harm will befall from rushing in." "Z-z-zounds! I fear to venture in, Schubert, and yet we must! ...Would'st do it for a Schubert Scrap? ...Would'st do it for two?!" "RUH-ROH!" *catchy chase music plays* "Doubtless here provides a place to snare the fiend with a subtle trap!" *montage* "ZOUNDS!" "Ruh-roh!" "" *further montage* "And now, friends, to unmask this scurrilous varlet! Let us see who the spectre really is!" "Jesu! Venerable JENKINS?!" "Ay, I aimed to frighten off the simple--and sell their land to a corn engrosser! At great profit! And HAD, were't not for ye meddlesome simpletons!" "We'll take Jenkins before the magistrate, youths. The barony thanks you for your assistance." "Well done all; another riddle solved! Twere Venerable Jenkins and his magic-lantern, coupled with masks and stilts." "Zounds! But--but what of the... the..." "RAR-Rulf?!" "Witless Norvil, the Wer-wulf is but a peasant superstition!" *ending music plays*
Hosilla from Reaper's Pathfinder miniature line. Or the curious case of the miniature that looks better in the pictures than in real life! I painted this some while ago (last august) to be a stand in for Talis, a villain in the Horde of the Dragon Queen DnD adventure. I was rather pleased with the result except for how the face turned out. I think it looks similar to those "doll faces" that you see on the Wizkid produced prepainted DnD and Pathfinder miniatures. Strangly enough that doesn't show up in the photo. So this is the first miniature I've painted where the photo is better than the actual result :D
In the last Box o' Goodwill round, I had the opportunity to start a box. Since we had a number of Sir Forscales around already, we landed on Bobby Jackson's Hosilla for our group-paint project. My group members did all the work; I just added a little basing that hopefully isn't too obnoxious--I noticed in the photos the lighter color of the stuff I used didn't take the wash fully in a spot or two, especially along one edge. So it looks a bit bright. Sorry. I'll fix it later but decided to go ahead and post it since it since the painting's what's hot, here. It's some fine painting everyone did, too. Please to be enjoying the work of these folks, in mailing order: Fishnjeeps IzzyLobo Pingo Fanguad Arc724 Kadence Ironhammer I think these are the first pictures I've posted using the lightbox I made. Hopefully these do the group's fine painting at least a little bit of justice.
