60148: Sandru Vhiski (aka 'Basil Rathbone')

Recommended Posts

Basil Rathbone is also quite well known for playing Sherlock Holmes... Just in case you find a mini of a barbarian wearing a deerstalker cap and cloak.

:;):

Any way thanks for straightening that up for me... also Hell of a job on the mini.

I love the character idea and the mini looks great.

 

(In 4E I actually built Samurai using the Barbarian rules, worked suprisingly well.)

Ah, Basil Rathbone. Brilliant swordsman, and the only reason Errol Flynn looked like he could fight. Note to fight choreographers: cast your best fighters as your villains, they'll make the hero look good.

 

Must see Rathbone fight: vs Danny Kaye in The Court Jester.

 

Also, great paint job on this guy. Love the base, too!

Actually, Rathbone couldn't keep up with Kaye in the famous swordfight, and Kaye's trainer had to stand in for Rathbone in much of the shooting. Kaye choreography was just so fast, and his technique was unconventional.

We need a Peter Lorre mini! In just that pose.

 

Also, amazing work on the elf there.

 

But seriously! Make a Peter Lorre Mini!

 

Peter Lorre - AS A BARBARIAN.

 

It could work! :bday:

      I finally finished painting the player character models for my 50 Fathoms campaign. Sadly I am posting this now instead of playing, since one of the players is sick.

      Group shot:


      First up, my husbands character, Toa, the kraken earth mage and swordsman. (Reaper 3135 Bathalian Pirate) Those who know 50 Fathoms should be able to guess one his starting edges.




      My son wanted to play a Zorro like character, so here is Xorro Mandez, the spanish mask wearing swordsman and ladies man (Reaper Chronoscope 50054 Zorro). This figure is also my first real success with NMM on a bigger object like a sword.





      The third character is Tawny Tinewise, a masaquani gunslinger with a penchant for blowing stuff up (Reaper 3623 Finaela), modified to have 2 guns. And yes, that revolver is not quite the right period, which is why I was trying to hide the cylinder by painting it wood...





      Last but not least, the captain of the bunch, an Englishman named Tim Brighton, which is also quite adept at shooting pistols and bows. (Pathfinder 60148 Sandru Vhiski)

      So I'm in the middle of working on 5 figures for my Pathfinder Group members, we are know collectively as The Queen's Hand.
       
      Stonehaven Gnomes (Mad Scientist & Thief) - Mr. Keen is the Alchemist and Shaddix is the mutated form, a single player uses both figures for his PC. It's a gnome alchemist who uses mutagens to change forms, so the Mad Scientist/Alchemist is the more reasonable half and the Thief/Mutated form is his crazy side. I'll be trying to add little bat wings to the Mad Scientist form as he's got those as a mutation as well. - EDIT - This character was made into a cohort, I'm still going to paint up the figures since I started on them, but the Alchemist will be following the orders of a new Priest of Asmodeus (below Hellknight).

      Bard, Sandru Vhiski (Reaper) - Alexite is a Chaotic Evil Bard (Detective) is just loves to kill things and use subterfuge to do so. The figure is smiling, I'm going to attempt to use paint to make him look like he's sneering. I've also filed off his goatee and given him a cleft chin.

      Elf Ranger, Arthal Nightblade (Reaper) - Maloc is a human mercenary fighter (archer) from Mwangi (think Africa) who looks like Heimdall from Thor. I've already filed off his ear points to make him look more human. I'm also planning on giving him a tiny beard (but going to double check on that with the player first before I do so).

      Art inspiration 
       
      Not shown - Hellknight who'll be joining us in a few weeks. I need to talk to the player and find out what that character will look like and find a figure for it. Obviously, he'll be the last thing I paint here. Still waiting on hearing back from the Player, will bug him again soon.
        Victus - Priest of Asmodeus, becoming the main character for the Player who also has the crazy Alchemist gnome. Need to find an appropriate figure for this guy.

      All of these are evil characters who are part of the Queen's Hand, an elite squad that is on the hunt for a character who committed treason agains the crown. My previous figure (Tiefling Summoner) is the nominal leader of the group.
       
      Here are the first pics of the figures as I got them all cleaned up, primed, slathered black wash over them, and then a bit of dry-brushing of the white primer again to bring out some pre-highlights. Finding I like doing this more and more.
       
      Shaddix & Mr. Keen - 


       
      Bard -

       
      Archer - 

       
      Throughout this WIP thread, I'll be asking for some C&C to try to get these all looking good (err evil). So any and all would be greatly appreciated!
