Pathfinder Shobhad

Recommended Posts

I wanted Shobhad for my pathfinder game. A Shobhad is basically a 4-armed giant with a big rifle. Similar to the 4 armed Martians in Princess of mars. There is a mini from Tin man Miniatures, but it was too small to be a "giant" in Pathfinder. So I decided to make my own.  

Here is a general description:

Shobhad

This gray-skinned giant is lean and muscled, with four powerful arms bearing weapons. She wears only a decorated leather harness and a loincloth.

These fabled four-armed giants are native to a low-gravity planet and renowned across several worlds for their ferocity in battle. Most shobhads are born and come of age in fierce tribal clans known collectively as the Shobhad-neh, and disdain the “soft living” practiced by many other humanoid races—they believe the abandonment of nomadic culture is a slippery slope that leads away from individual honor and into marginalization. Whether with flashing swords and lances or mysterious longrifles capable of picking off targets on faraway horizons, the clans of the Shobhad-neh constantly vie for resources in the hard deserts and mountains where they live, their need to survive trumped only by a still greater desire for honor.

Though considered barbaric by many, the Shobhad-neh operate under strict codes of conduct that dictate how a warrior may gain status via ritualistic challenges or daring coups in territorial squabbles. Unfortunately for other races, these rules almost always apply exclusively to interactions with other shobhads, and the Shobhad-neh see “lesser” races as little more than sheep to be culled.

Typical shobhad warriors stand 12 feet tall and weigh 500 pounds, and their lean bodies are corded with ropes of muscle. Most shobhads prefer to go naked save for loincloths and the leather harnesses that crisscross their chests and secure their weapons in place. When they wear clothing, its either practical such as hide armor and wrappings that protect against biting sandstorms, or ceremonial like the brightly colored skins and feathers chieftains and shamans wear.

Though shobhads can be found on occasion working as lone mercenaries in cities, such urban individuals are the exception rather than the rule. Shobhad shamans preach that in human cities, an individual is little more than a faceless cog in a machine, remembered by no one. Yet a shobhad warrior who rides heroically into battle atop her armored reptilian steed is never forgotten—neither by her own kin, nor by the families of those she defeats. Thus, in battle, a shobhad is made truly immortal.

Shobhad Longrifle

A shobhad longrifle is treated as a Large rifle with a range increment of 200 feet, but it functions only on low-gravity worlds.

 

I used Rauthorus demon as a base. Shaving off some spikes and what not. There are GW ogre kingdom bits and Manic Ogre bits. The rifle has some tyranid parts...

The Green stuff stands out but I will be adding some stuff once it hardens.

That is a SPLENDID LOOKING conversion. VERY NICELY DONE!

Did you drill out the muzzles? If not, it is worth the effort.
