(Originally posted on 12/3/13) There has been a lot of non-40k going on with me lately. And with all of these rulebooks flying by every month it's easy to take a step back from the game while GW catches up on rules (which should have happened a long time ago). In the meantime I'm having a great time with WMH and (if you didn't read the title you're going to be shocked...SHOCKED!) DnD.
If you live under a rock (I get that the rent's cheap, but your children are sick of eating moss; stop it) or if you aren't very nerdy (why are you on our website?), Dungeons and Dragons or DnD (or D&D if you're willing to put in the extra effort for an ampersand; not worth it) is an oldschool role playing game where your imagination is the only limit to the amount of fun you can have.
Basically, it's not something I bring up on a first date (and the same goes for my overuse of parentheses.)
However, it's something I enjoy playing. So when my gaming buddies decided to move their DnD night to one of my days off, I was pumped since I hadn't played DnD in years.
I won't bore you with the why and how, but the character I finally decided to go with is a Rogue...
Put them all together and I thought the Eldar Harlequin Troope Master was a good model to go with:
Plus it gives me an excuse to eventually dive into Eldar or DEldar in the future.
I'm pretty pleased with how this model turned out. This is the first time I think I really pulled off a shimmering gem (the one on his belt) while at the same time not having it bright enough to distract from the rest of the model.
Until next time. "Excelsior!"
