Today I had a bit of free time so I threw together this little guy here.
Nothing too fancy, just mixed shades for the blue pants and brown cloak with a few lighter shades for the sack, hat, and boots. The scythe blade is the first weapon I have painted with non-metallic in a while and I may go back and highlight it a bit more to actually try doing a proper non-metal metal effect on it. Naturally he hasn’t received the basing treatment yet, I have a few who need some putty thrown around, that will likely be a project for another day.
As I painted him up, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to use him. He is obviously a good stand in for a Pathfinder villain in a published scenario I played, but I wanted to make him something different in Dungeon Down. So I figured he would have a scaring attack (I know so creative).
The hat band screamed yellow to me, so I painted his hat very much like a rebel cavalryman…although I would not want to see the horse he rides in on. Fast forward a few stages of my rambling mind and I decided he would be a more positive piece of Americana…Johnny Appleseed. But instead of sowing apples wherever he goes, I see him planting skeletons.
So a new creature is born for my game, a monster who spreads skeletons around. This guy will be quite the tough nut to crack I am sure, so I look forward to playing him in a few games.
Another short post, maybe my previous guess of none before the new year was a bit off. Hopefully this was inspirational for you, even if short.
