The (Un)Usual Suspects: A Rogues' Gallery WIP

Recommended Posts

A rogues gallery (or rogues' gallery) is a police collection of pictures or photographs of criminals and suspects kept for identification purposes. The term is also used figuratively for any group of shady characters or the line-up of "mugshot" photographs that might be displayed in the halls of a dormitory or workplace.

 

 

That's what Wikipedia tells me, in no uncertain terms. So, here it is. I have a large selection of miniatures that would make excellent Rogues (or Thieves, for us old schoolers), and I mean to get them painted.

 

First up, we have a trio of Bushido minis for another Were-Fox character concept. A seductress, who's no stranger to fighting:

 

Saki, Kitsune, and Fox Form:

Next, is the amazing Dark Sword Female Assassin:

Next up Eskin, Male Rogue:

Then Vesper-On's The Duke:

Gretchen vonKonigsmark from Raging Heroes will make an appearance as a gun-toting rogue:

Along with Jirelle, Iconic Swashbuckler:

And the Master Harlequina from Klockenbooty Freebooter Miniatures:

Also making an appearance, once I get her in hand, is Lenore from Hasslefree. Not a rogue by description, she will be painted as one (and probably my favorite Thief of all time):

You know the rules, anything goes! On with the show!

She'll be jumping in line as soon as I get her. I've been trying to get one for a while now, but the metal version has always been out of stock. I ended up grabbing a (much) more expensive resin master, just so I could get one.

I will definitely be watching this one. I really enjoy rogue figures, they speak to me and I end up buying quite a few to paint later on.

I, too, have an affinity for Rogues. They're my favorite class. I highly recommend all of these minis for use as Rogues.

 

EDIT: Not that I'm biased, or anything.

Great line up, I will be keeping an eye on this. Rogues are my favorite class as well and those are some nice minis. I am also anticipating Lenore as I have her waiting in line to be painted.

Downloaded a bunch of reference pictures:

And did some work on the bases for the first set:

The bamboo is basecoated in GW Tausept Ochre (now Balor Brown). The sand is basecoated in GW Dheneb Stone (now Rakarth Flesh). The leather straps were basecoated in Reaper Ruddy Leather. The whole thing was given a sepia wash. The sand was drybrushed in Dheneb Stone, and I've started highlighting and giving a grain to the bamboo with Tausept Ochre.

 

The stone that the fox is standing on was basecoated in GW Stormvermin Fur, washed in black, then drybrushed with Stormvermin Fur, and again with P3 Cryx Bane Highlight. The sand and stone are done, the bamboo and leather still have some work needed.

 

I am taking other suggestions for the Kimono and dress, if anyone has any.

It's like, you want advice on clothing without telling us what these ladies look like!  How can we possibly choose a nice outfit??

Think "Japanese." Honey-brown skin and black hair for the full-human form, and fox coloration for the middle form, but the clothes need to be the same. The only thing that's solid in my mind is the cherry blossom pattern. the color is up for debate, though. I'm leaning towards black/pink or pink/white. (All silk, of course.)

 

I'll take recommendations from those with more fashion sense than me, though. To me "high fashion" means my NICE Doctor Who t-shirt and less torn jeans.

It's kind of plain. I'm pretty set on the cherry blossoms (though other designs aren't out of the question). I don't really want a solid color kimono, though.

      Recently finished this lovely mini from Dark Sword. Toyed with a few ideas but the winter theme ended up being the one that stuck. I wish I had had more time to spend on it but I am happy with how she turned out.

      After giving both Buckland and the Miner a jaunty yellow-and-white scheme, it came burning hot into my mind that they should be part of a team of space roughnecks/asteroid miners/problem solvers. This is the rest of that team. 

      First, Kulgara. She's a Pathfinder model, from the 'Iron Gods' adventure, and is a techno-badelf. What a great Space Orc. I think her vambraced fists count as construction equipment, and the ridiculously huge chainsaw (with knuckle spikes, in case you have a chainsaw fight and need to punch someone?) is beautifully over-the-top. I'm not sure what the lever-matic tool on her back is supposed to be. The giant wrench is from Bombshell.



      She's definitely in the right line of work here.

       
      Next up, Sluggo, the Space Henchman. Noseless and brutish, with gangly but muscular arms and a dyspeptic expression. I thought at first of making him the same species as the Andromedans, but decided against it and gave him a pale Vampiric Flesh+Magos Purple sluglike complexion. Jetpack is Bombshell again. I love jetpacks, though I'm afraid this one gets in the way of his suspendies.
       


      Serendipitously, I remembered the weird little Slimer-like alien I had leftover from Betty, Space Heroine (50150). It, too, has a big round noseless head, rubbery aspect, wiry limbs, and short legs! Perhaps it and Sluggo here are the same species; it certainly looks like it could hench in a pinch. I'll call it Squish.
       

       
      Also got a fella in a hazmat suit with some kind of Geiger-counter sensor or such, from Hasslefree. Seen here in a routine check of goo emissions levels. Just carrying out assigned tasks, nothing suspicious here.

       
      And here's the whole greasy roustabout crew:

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him
