Yet another looking for PC fig topic

Recommended Posts

So I'm playing in the Kingmaker PbP run by Vil-hatarn.

 

My character is an exiled Chelaxian noble (well, he's been disowned so I guess that's former noble), and because I like to rationalize my mini purchases (it's not a disorder damn it!), I am trying to find a figure to paint up to represent him (as characters that have painted minis roll better).

 

Alexi Dromange  is Shelaxian as I have said but has been training to be a Aldori Swordlord (fighter type).  His main weapon is the Aldori Dueling sword (a curved longsword) and he does wear armor.  He doesn't normally use a shield or a second weapon in his off hand.  He tends to be well dressed.  I havn't decided on facial hair, most likely clean shaven (if bearded a neat goatee or trimmed beard).

 

I ideas I have had so far:

 

2144 Eric Swift Blade: Pros Curved sword, clothing could be fancy.  Cons: no armor (but maybe his about town wear?) and I'm not digging the 'do rag.

 

2186 Alfred Redlute: cut out the lute, curve the sword, could work

 

3065 Kellen, Nobleman Adventurer: cut out the dagger, paint the armor fancy maybe (Alexi will most likely wear heavier armor but could come close)

 

3556 Ashlan Fell Thrush: Looks great except for the shield.  Cool guy why do I not have him?  Added to wish list.

 

60119 Andoran Steel Falcon: Is the shield on his back a separate piece.  If so a weapon swap and he can work.

 

60127 Hell Knight Captain:  Ohhh, this could be the one.  No conversion needed clean cut (as long as I don't paint stubble).

 

60148 Sandru Vhiski another useable figure

 

So what do you guys think?  Anyone I over looked?  I'm fine with other manufacturers as well, I'm just more familiar with Reaper.

I really like the Hellkight Captian. In regards to 60119: Andoran Steel Falcon the Reaper store does list a shield / scabbard sprue in the Boneyard so I would say, yes, the shield is a seperate piece.

Hey Jeff, make sure you don't abuse my Moderator abilities when I walk away suddenly for no reason and leave my laptop open and logged in… especially that Edit button  :poke:

Hell Knight Capt would be my first pick out of the ones you mentions.  You snagged most of the ones I would.

 

Vencarlo Orsini works well too, although without armor.

 

Eando Kline - Though if you don't take him, I may use him for my guy.

 

Tariq

 

Juron

The first two were possibilities.  Vencarlo only shows the paint job not the bare mini, and that gives me difficulty seeing it in any other paint scheme.  I like Eando, but I think I discounted him due to the many  bits to paint factor..

 

I should check my GoT minis from Darksword and see if any of them match up.

      So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done.  Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side. 
       
      Anyway, here goes:  
       
      Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand  and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues).  Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company).   Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such.  As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.  
       
      99% reaper paints:  Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes. 
       
      This mini actually has kind of a weird story.  
       
      This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign.  This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary.  Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign.  But that's only part of the backstory. 
       
      I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004.  I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe.  I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield.  My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.  

      For sixteen years. 

      Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!  
       
      May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not.  Don't know how much more time I want to give this one.  Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.

      Been on a painting spree these last few months, in fact Cassie is mini 52 painted so far this year, out of my original goal of painting 50 all year.
       
      First up is Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard (SKU 77164) which is the bones version.  The details were a bit soft, but she is totally serviceable for table-top.

       
      Next up, Blink Berenwicket (SKU 3689), the super spunky female gnome warrior in metal.  The sword didn't really turn out, and I should have had a side view...  Metals are shaded metallics.
       


       
      And last but not least, Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard (SKU 77031) in bones and mini number 52 of the year.

      Some guy from the Kickstarter  project.  Cast in plastic, some of the detail was really sharp, some was not. The face was weird, I could not figure out if he was supposed to have a mustache or not.  Good enough for tabletop play.

      Hi again, fine folks!
       
      So just finished this one last night, last part of course the shield, which took me a while to figure out, but who doesn't need a good squirrel shield?  Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!
