A Matter of Elf

For the first six or so sessions one of the players has used a Human Ranger as her figure but after waiting for the figure to finally be back in stock at Leisure Games I was rewarded with the Reaper Miniatures Elvish figure  14058 Lorielle Silverrain sculptured by S. Garrity.

I really like the figure as has a reasonable amount of detail and fits the players idea of what she looks like so it's more or less perfect for the game. I decided to go really pale skinned as I wanted the Elves to have a fragile look. Being the Fourth Age and after the calling of the Elves home the ones left should be more care worn and in some ways more vulnerable.

The player is experiencing her first roleplaying game and has gone from very self concious to really getting into the theme and world. The reward has been two way, she gets to have a lot of fun but also contributes to the thinking and comes up with ideas and has helped break down a few leads to get results. I have a strong block of players that will help the game progress.

I do wish more figures would come with baggage, though this figure is carrying enough wit the bow case and sword. She also has a couple of pouches and extra's on the belt which makes for interesting bits to paint. If I had been brave I would have added some free hand to the quiver but as it was a bit rushed anyway I chickened out.

    1. It was a pleasure, his zine is a goldmine for fantasy GM's as so much of the detail can be slipped into a campaign and I have had two side adventures and a good adventure hook planted from The Manor already. Other ideas are awaiting their turn too.
