Personify the Wind

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, brain trust,


I'm trying to fill in minis for a home brew D&D campaign. Four of the overarching personalities in the world are personifications of the winds. Each has a tower in my world, dedicated to their reverence, and each person controls the winds corresponding to a cardinal direction on the compass using an instrument unique to them.


The North Wind is cold and ruthless; abandoned by a former beau, she desires to leave the world as cold as that unfaithful ingrate's heart was toward her.

The South Wind is young, warm, and fancy-free; inexperienced, she sees the best in everything, and just wants everyone to be comfortable and happy.

The West Wind is constant and productive; order and normalcy are associated with her.

The East Wind is unusual, untrustworthy, and often bears ill omen; chaos and sickness tend to accompany her.


For the minis, I really like Julie Guthrie's Spirit of Winter (N. wind), Spirit of Spring (S. wind), and Spirit of Fall (W. wind), but the Spirit of Summer doesn't fit my picture for the East wind, and I don't want a mini that's so under-dressed. I imagined them as a group of sisters, although I have considered making the east wind a brother.


Can anyone think of a mini that would fit the bill and (at least sort of) match the other three mentioned?

Have you checked the Figure Finder? It allows you to set parameters like male or female, race, what they hold, and what they wear.  Very useful if you're trying to limit the possibilities.  Note the tags are not perfect, however.  While playing around, I noticed Spirit of Summer is not listed as Human or Female.  Adding the sculptor's name may help as well since their figures may share a likeness.

I looked at the Spirit of Spring fig, then clicked on the "Dress" search value below. Tons of awesome ladies popped up, all in dresses, many whipping in the wind, and some sickly looking.


Try it - I think you'll find something.

Thanks. I've used the figure finder before, but I guess I've been lacking inspiration in my search criteria of late. I've been out of the game for about two years, so...grinding the gears back into it.

      So one of the central villains in my HS game club game are going to be a band of cultists worshiping an evil snake god.  I've been painting up the various Reaper Bones cultists to represent this group.  This info is unknown to the players yet, so I had a yelp of excitement and joy when I was reading the kid's PC backgrounds last night.  One of the PCs listed her estranged mother's profession as a "cultist".  Perfect tie in to the villain - but then I had a sad face when I realized this PC is a gnome, and thus her mother would be a gnome, too. 

      So now I am on a quest to find a decent mini to represent a gnome (or halfling) cultist. 

      Any suggestions?

      I'm thinking of purchasing a Hot Glue Gun and wanted to know if anyone had recommendations and why you like a particular one. 
      Thank you!

      Just finished a short article for DaggerAndBrush showing you a selection of tools that will come in very handy for pretty much any terrain project. I keep it simple and recommend a number of tools for cutting and measuring; painting, sculpting and engraving; and tools that are nice to have, but not essential.
      So if you just started making terrain or intend to make some this may come in handy.
      The right tool for the job

      Might have some time to kill in Portland this afternoon. Can anyone recommend any game stores with broad selection and interesting stuff?

      So I have been looking for some epic mini's holding a church warden or average pipe and am coming up short. I figured I needed to get some help. Besides the cutest Pipe holding wizard EVER, I'm having a hard time finding them. I love me some Reaper Mini but I am not exclusive for this search.
      The idea is to find something along the lines of Aragon in the prancing pony...
      OH And that is a recommendation too, Mini with pipes!
