I bought a bunch of rangers so that anyone I played with had a good set of choices and I settled on a cool female ranger made by Otherworld Miniatures for myself. I picked the name Lewinna, who is a quite obscure saint with dubious provenance I read about in a book on relic thefts.
From left to right we have Gabriella (Reaper duellist), Ladyhawke (Mega Miniatures), Lewinna (Otherworld), Sasha (Frostgrave plastic female soldiers), and Orbis the hound (Frostgrave).
My kids (ages 9 and 5) picked some rangers out of the pile for me to paint for them.
Here we have Blaze and Seeker the Panther, the 5-year-old's pick. He wanted an animal companion since his older brother had one, and wanted a panther. Luckily I had a Ral Partha lioness unpainted in the lead pile. The ranger is from Reaper.
Thor and Mary the Wolf, my 9-year-old's pick. Both are from the same Reaper pack. Not quite sure where the name of the wolf came from...
I've played the first scenario twice now, once with the family using four rangers and a companion each, and once with a friend. So far I like it quite a bit and am furiously painting stuff for the next scenario.
Excellent painting! All of them are very good looking but Blaze and Thor are my favorites from the bunch!ReplyDelete
Thanks, I'll let my sons know. They picked the colors ;)Delete
Very nice! I really like the subdued pallette on Blaze.ReplyDelete
Thanks, my 5 year old has a good eye already!Delete
Looking really good mate! I like the scenery too. I'm now going to try and source that dogReplyDelete
Thanks, I already have several 28mm dogs, but I had to have this one for RoSD :)Delete
Ordered! He's going to become a trusty Scavvy companion in NecromundaDelete
Cool idea, I have some scavvies myself but never did get a hold of the dogs that specialist released.Delete
This is exactly what RoS should look like.ReplyDelete
Wow, I'm both jealous and in awe. Both the miniatures you picked and painted, as well as the terrain are just perfect.
This post is pure eyecandy. I do hope you're thinking of writing some reports of these Rangers their exploits in the future.
Thank you, I have to say this game has really captured me. I've got a lot of plans for it. Thanks for the advice on reports- I don't do enough of that. Good idea!Delete
Lovely work. Otherworld really puts out some lovely models, and your work here on the ranger(s) from them and Reaper really look fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Otherworld does make some great stuff. I'd been eyeing their demon idol set for a while, and picked that up at the same time as this this ranger. They have quite a few things I want ;)Delete
Lovely work, I like them all, they look really charming :)ReplyDelete
Fantastic. These look great and whilst I had resisted looking at this game I am now intrigued. I have a 5 y.o. interested in miniatures gaming (and a 7 y.o. who might be if everyone was doing it!). How does yours find it? Can they do enough to have fun?ReplyDelete
They liked it, but I made the mistake of generating characters and then playing, which made it a long session for short attentions. Also, the youngest was trying to set up his own narrative (for example, one of the village houses was his ranger's house!!) so you may need to roll with that. He started making his own Hirst Arts block creation today, so I think that the game was fun enough to generate some creative interest.Delete
Thanks...might have to check it out!Delete
Beautiful table and miniatures.ReplyDelete
Thanks, apologies for the late reply. Missed this one!Delete
