Very dramatic, and EXTREMELY hard to roleplay- considering my GM is a woman and very happy to step on a dodgy portrayal of her fair kind. So much fun it almost makes up for the horrible AD&D 4.0 system. Going to convince her to switch to something mega retro like Labyrinth Lord. :)
Our whole gaming group are digital artists, so quickly we got into painting our characters...
|Regan Black. Day one.|
Since the adventure takes place in the frozen north, the effect of being mind switched into a witch wearing a skimpy Frazetta style sorceress costume was instant hypothermia as her protective warming spells vanished. Having staggered back into town and scrounged up some clothing from the villagers, I ended up stuck with a red / blue ensemble. She still has the witches red corset and gloves on, but with a male puritanical witchunters eye for fashion, I constructed the rest of her costume with practicality in mind...
|Regan Black... as depicted by me. Now I have to find a mini...|
|Converted Reaper 'Callie' female rogue and Converted Citadel 1980's AD&D Female Thief|
After a few sessions, all the guys got bigger, chunkier modern figures. Mine was getting a bit lost on the gaming table, and besides, I mainly use a bow - so I decided to get a new figure. Callie from Reaper minis was close, the had a dorky face. I dremmelled it out and replaced it with a little green stuff. Again, a corset and fur was added to give a frozen north look. Its going to be fun keeping my miniature up to date. Considering the figures only around 8 bucks, I wanted to keep figures for all stages of her growth. At the end of the campaign I have some reminders!
On a more retro adventure, I picked up these three mystery figures from fleabay. I found out they are Grenadier bugbears. To be honest, they are very old school, ugly looking chaps... stiff with a weird head... but hey, I just love painting up old awkward figures.
Polishing turds, some call it.
Anyway, there was a touch of character about them that drew me in. I tried a little something different here with the bases.
And now... demon nuns.
|Reaper Battle Nuns|
The other units are a little too rude to post- having been lovingly converted to show a little more flesh, and one having snapping jaws where a woman shouldn't have them if you catch my drift. The army features bits of Slannesh figures, Reaper figures and lots of scratch built stuff- insane nuns tearing at their clothes, changing into succubi and generally enjoying the battle. Its a scream to do, but not sure if it should be brought out at a family orientated gaming convention.
Its a big time commitment considering I have yet to play Hott- but I figure I can always use them in Skulldred- as multi based models are perfectly acceptable!
