So my Dungeon Bash mini is as painted as he's going to be for the OGRE meeting in brother Erny's kitchen on Thursday night.
Here he is, my Grey Wizard now known as Randulf Schatten-Krähe;
Randulf is young for a wizard, probably late 20's or early 30's and I'd like to think I've shown this by giving him a ginger beard (he's supposed to be me after all). He's passed his exams and graduated into the shadowy Grey Order with flying shades of grey and has been sent out into the world to fulfil the Grey Order master plan, yes Randulf is an intentional shameless rip off!
Being a Grey Wizard means Randulf is a tricksy fellow, Grey Wizards are the Jedi of the Warhammer World, being a kind of secret order of peace keepers (after a fashion) and as such I see him as a manipulator within the group of adventurers, using the group to fulfil his Order's agenda. Does he mean harm by his subtle manipulation? Of course not, it's for the greater good of the Empire and mankind in general. Randulf just happens to find the jobs/quests/treasure hunts for the gang that just so happen to fulfil his mission and somehow manages to persuade the others to go along with it. He's certainly not the leader, he just happens to be the strongest voice of council.
I'm aware that it's far from a Golden Gobbo paint job, the face makes me cringe, I've tried to get it right repeatedly and the layers of paint show and I'm not sure if I can hack another ink job on it. Nevermind, he's fit for purpose and I'm happy enough to show him off.
Next post will be to finish off those Campaign rules, promise..................................
