60075: King Castruccio Irovetti

Recommended Posts

I literally stopped painting miniatures for people because I didn't want to deal with having their character get killed off and my painted figure disappearing from the game.

It is a curse: an OUTSTANDING paint job or a cool name & interesting background equal an instant, horrible death in Role Playing Games. A FANTASTICALLY painted & based creation like this one was doomed at the last brush stroke. VERY WELL DONE!

He died sooner than he could even wear one. But I have to say that it was glorious fight and death :) One to remember....and this miniature will remain as a memento of it.

 

@ Redambrosia: Thank you, I stole it on the internet :)

We have a house rule that frowns on specific minis because it kills characters. Doesn't matter who the DM is, what we're doing, a new mini signals deal for the party. We now get special minis after a game. :-)

Brilliant work!  I suppose it serves as a "memorial" for the character, at least.  And who knows?  Maybe in some future game, he'll play ANOTHER character-who-might-be-king, and this time he'll make it stick.  :D

 

(My problem with fixing up custom minis for PCs is that I'll come up with a mini and get a reaction like, "Great!  Except my character has {whatever weapon/shield/armor} now, rather than {whatever it is depicted on the mini, as per a description that was only correct a session or two ago}."  When it comes to equipment, my attitude is that I'm going for the "spirit" of the character, so I'm not "responsible" for kitbashing it every time someone picks up a new weapon or trades out armor.  Otherwise, in some campaigns, the characters should REALLY look like Oswald the Overladen, with overstuffed backpack, spare weapons sticking out of every fold, a small pantry of "rations" slung here and there, magic potions dangling precariously, totally mismatched pieces of armor and weapons, and gaudy random pieces of magic bling.)

He's not a ranger, he's a fighter with a bow!

He looks great. I find that as long as you're GMing (or assisting a GM with figures), old PC make great new PC or NPCs. Especially with new people who haven't seen them before. He would be pretty on a shelf until that happens though.

This mini is so ridiculously gorgeous, i don't even feel worthy to comment ;)

 

Amazing work - the many textures and colors of metal, the amazing free hand cloak - WOW!

      My friend is playing a fighter in a Pathfinder game, so I decided to take a break from my Batman game to paint up a figure for her, though I decided to paint two.  
       
      I asked her what her favorite color is, and she said "Blue", so I painted up a mini with lots of blue.  If I paint her again I think I'd pick out the fleur-de-lis in a different color, to make it stand out some more.

      The new Kickstarter got me motivated to dig up some old bones. I realized after all these years I have never painted a dragon, so I got after it. Rather happy with how this came out.

      This is Barzillai Thrune, the major villain from the Pathfinder Hell's Rebels campaign. I painted him as a service to my DM because we are currently playing that campaign and my intuition tells me that it will be needed some day. The mini is extremely faithful to the original Wayne Reynolds art and I also used the same colour scheme, but I regret using my standard unimaginative "block of acryl paste" base. With the burning mace the mini would be excellent for OSL experiments and there are two fine versions of it on the forum with lighting effects, but I thought to late about the idea and was reluctant to add it to the almost finished mini.

      So here is my take on the famous Pathfinder Sorceress Seoni. I mostly kept to the original color scheme but wanted to find out how a green dress would look.

      I don't play Pathfinder but really liked the idea of Kul Inkit being a barbarian outfitted from a crashed spaceship. I tried to include spaceship grey and bright orange to suggest this.
