I finally got around to actually painting the bard conversion I built last week. With the next session being on Thursday, I have a lot of miniatures to prep and it was nice to start it off with something that I could actually get done to completion and appreciate the results.
A friend of mine is likely to play a bard in the campaign, and his instrument of choice is a set of bagpipes. I have no miniatures even remotely close to a bard, so I had to improvise.
The second chapter of the campaign I am aiming to run is heavily populated by dragonkind and all manner of reptiles. As such, it was a pleasant surprise to unbox my copy of Legend of Drizzt and finding three unpainted, green plastic Hunting Drakes. These have a great scaly texture, and it wasn’t long before I was putting paint on one of them.
About time I gave Radgar Virescale (yes, that’s his name in the campaign) a base on which to stand, overlooking his vast Kobold and Cultist army.
Long time, no painting! It’s been a while, but I had to pick up the brush again when I found a store carrying a decent selection of Reaper Bones miniatures… among which was the pefect general for the Green Dragon in the campaign I’ve been running for the guys at work.
Time for another PC mini. Dredd, the Human Paladin of Helm in my campaign lacked a miniature that properly portrayed the character, and that was the perfect excuse for me to try and paint some white (something I had been meaning to do for a while).
The guy playing a Warlock in the game that I started running a couple weeks ago didn’t really have a mini to use, so he had to settle for a generic caster for our first session. Well, time to correct that!
