03381: Satheras, Elf Warlock

Recommended Posts

Finished up the month with Bobby Jackson's Satheras, Elf Warlock. This is the metal version. I'll be using him as an NPC in the Pathfinder Game I'm running--Gerinnes Lefelen, an elven wizard who's the de facto ruler of a town and the PC's benefactor . . . for now. Mwah ha ha.

 

I'd had this mini on my to-get list for quite some time, having wanted to paint it since the moment I saw it, but I must confess that once I started getting into it I found the robes a little silly, regarding what's part of what and what's not. I just kind of winged it, in the end, hehe, without being altogether sure how it should go. But it was still pretty fun.

Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are always appreciated.

Do you mean if you tried to map out the shape of his garments, it would be difficult to determine how they work?

 

Anyhow, he looks nice and slightly sinister.

I see you went with gray, too.

 

Ahhaha, was yours gray? I thought he looked darker.

 

Confession: I wasn't sure what color I was going to use for the robe, but then I had a ton of that light gray (some lightened Payne's grey) left from something I was doing on the mini prior (Nord) and decided, hey! I kinda like that!

Yeah, pretty much. Like I decided to do the hood bit and the rob down his legs as a set, but then I did the vest and sleeve-armor and what I suppose is a cape as a piece, though I feel like they're probably three different things. The outfit just struck me as a little silly, once I got rolling with it.

 

Also, the leg and the foot had no clear cut; I still haven't decided if it's a thigh-high boot or not, lol. Didn't seem right, so I just made an artificial cutoff for it. It kind of looks like he's wearing a slipper, though. :unsure:

      This finally gave me something to use my larger Games Workshop skulls on. I may try to give his hair another highlight of something brighter, as it looks pretty dull at the moment. A fun evil mage that I hope to use as a boss battle one day.

      What is a faux-prehistoric setting without Cavemen? The stereotypical fur-clad, monosyllabic unwashed barbarian that whacks a woman over the head with a club and then drags her by the hair into a cave?
      Or at least, sporting the "cave man" look that was popularised in The Flintstones and The Far Side.
      The reason these types are prehistoric lies in the name. Pre-history, as in "before recorded time". Which really is most of time.
      We don't really know all that much about prehistoric man other than what can be gleaned through archeology. We do know that there existed several different sub-species of humans concurrently up to about 50.000 years ago. Neanderthals would be one such sub-species, the Hobbits (Homo Florensis) another.
      Then we (or something) killed off all the others. Some evidence of interspecies breeding is still to be found in our modern DNA.
       
       
      #628-631 These were only shown as silhouettes in the KS.

      From left to right: Shaman. clubber, spearman, archer.
      These are technologically advanced cavemen, as shown by their use of the bow.
       

      The Shaman. I call him Barney. He succeeded in the Quest for Fire.
       

      The clubber, Thag Simmons. He will be known to posterity by the manner of his demise. (Should have stayed clear of the tail end of that Stegosaur.)
       
       

      Fred, the spearman. Used stones of flint to make a sharp spearhead.
       

      Archie the bowman. His right hand strategically placed to hide his embarrassing lack of arrows from the others.
       
      These were simple and fun to do in regular paints on a black undercoat.
       

      I come in search of the answer to the Riddle of Steel! What do you know about it?
       
      These minis were finished June 14th 2020.

      These two were mostly done a while ago (along with their buddy Darkrasp). It's just taken me a while to work up the courage to paint the scroll and spellbook and get them off my shelf of shame!

      Here is another wizard from the Greybeards subset of the Bones 4 Core set. This one does have a metal version (SKU 03953) and was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I had fun with this figure. I love the character in these wizard figures. This one is strongly reminiscent of Gandalf. Though I resisted the temptation to go grey I did sneak Gandalf's rune onto the medallion on the back of his hat.
