My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman. I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats. My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming. So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.
Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.
Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1
Dex 19 (+2 human)
Favored Class Ranger +1 HP
Trait: Rich Parents
Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)
Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)
Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike
Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken
Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:
Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth
Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:
Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics. I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.
He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon. That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.
Let me know what you think.
My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there. My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.
Needed a civilian type for a game, and this was the best I find in my lead mountain.
Dunno why, but I keep seeing him as one of those beer-making monks carrying a keg on his back.
So I painted him as one who just "sampled" the merchandise and really liked the sample.
The nose and cheeks were more "ruddy" IRL but doesn't show up well in the pictures.
There is a lightish line at the top of the belly where I tried to repair the paint job after accidently flicking some dark wash on it.
The line isn't really visible IRL but clearly seen in the pictures.
Thanks for looking.
And if something looked odd with my montage, it's because the second picture got flipped when I was joining the four of them together. Just noticed this.
The rest of my Kickstarter for AEG's Thunderstone Quest came in. This was for an expansion that changed the player count from 2-4 to 1-6 as well as adding a cooperative mode. I'm not sure I'd want to play this game at 6 players unless it is cooperative because there is a lot of downtime when its not your turn. In cooperative mode, it seems that everyone goes at the same time, so that probably reduces down time.
I didn't realize it at the time, but the expansion ALSO comes with two minis (6 were included in the base game so it wasn't strictly necessary). I also didn't realize that the monk had a mark on her forehead that I THINK is intentional (these aren't the best minis, as you can see from the crease down her back). I would have painted her a lighter skin tone so the mark would stand out better if I realized that earlier. I chose green for her since a nice yellow/orange color was already taken by one of the other minis I painted for this game and I wanted unique player colors. Likewise, I chose white for the crusader because all the good colors were taken and I could see him as a paladin type.
Hopefully I don't get any more minis for this game because I'm running out of unique player colors.
The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game.
For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis.
On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar.
I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect.
I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions...
Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons.
