 AS I have decided to take part in the "Board of the Living Lead" Fantasy Roleplaying game LINK I needed to get a character. I had a rummage and found and repainted this figure. It is one of the very old Citadel AD+D adventurers. They came three in a pack all the same characters but at different times in their career. Thus you had one starting out one representing mid level and one with better clothes and equipment to represent a high level character. It was a concept that I really liked, but at the time was unable to purchase many pack, just the Female cleric pack and the male thief pack. I have no idea where most of them are now. Life moves on!

Character Name: Tawnee Mac Gillivary.

Stats: Quality:2 Combat :5
Abilities: Cleric.
Points:100

That is all the stats needed for Songs of Blades and Heroes. We were given a maximum of 100 points and as it was board of the Living Lead (part of the Zombie Bloggers Association) I decided early that a Cleric was definitely the way to go.  This hopefully will cover two aspects very useful to the party. A dedicated Undead slayer (It is Board of the Living Lead afterall) it will also give the party a healer. Healing is not that useful in "Songs..." but you never know. Anyway that was my thought process.

Other than "Tawnee" I have been busy on other projects. I have suggested a game for Broadside next year and will be starting that very soon. Most of the painting I want to do as part of Curt's ( Blog Link ) Analogue painting challenge, but I will try a sample figure later this week.

I have some other things loitering in the background as well. 15mm Sci Fi, 10mm Samurai (of course), TAR7AN (yes it's still hanging in there and now planning a second board, more of this another day), 28mm Colonial (what you never mentioned this before!) as well as 28mm Colonial Marines etc. and of course St Searle's Girls......yes with terrain.

So there is a lot going on behind the scenes, perhaps too much as I do want to focus on the Samurai. Anyway that's it for today, thanks for popping round for a look. Hope to see you again soon. All the best Clint

  1. Nice, colourful character. Q2, C5 is *tough*, if I understand these things correctly!

    1. As tough as I had the points for! I could have dropped C to a 4 and taken a few more abilities, but I wanted something that would survive!

      Thank you Colgar. And just to say you have inspired me by doing something similar but with witch-hunters.
