As we close in on the early release date for Ravenloft (is it March 4th yet?) I'm working behind the scenes on the monsters and NPCs that we'll need.
Having said that I have 2 players that may or may not have models for their characters. In any event I decided to get 2 figures done for them so we have them if we need them. The real trick is that I needed two figures wearing scalemail, luckily Warhammer High Elves are multi-piece models (so they're fairly easy to work with) and most of them dress in scalemail.
First up is Therien. Therien is a wood elf cleric hailing from the Ravenloft domain of Sithicus. For those of you unfamiliar with the setting; Sithicus is a twisted mirror slice of Ansalon from the Dragonlance campaign setting. Therien is armed with a mace (which I couldn't find a bit for) and a crossbow.
Next up is Mark. Mark is a human ranger from Ansalon from the Dragonlance campaign setting. Mark uses two hand weapons and a longbow and is built entirely out of parts from the Shadow Warriors sprues.
I intentionally chose to do Therien and Mark up to look very similar for a few reasons:
1. (practical) I was using the Shadow Warriors as a base for both characters so whether I wanted to or not they were always going to look similar anyway.
2. One of them is from the Dragonlance campaign setting and one of them is from a shadow version of that same setting and they are both from a woodland background so they should be somewhat similar stylistically.
3. Everyone and everything in Ravenloft has some sort of dark secret, there are no coincidences, and this visual similarity may/will tease a later connection.
