These guys are a small gang of bandits in my current AD&D 3.5 campaign. Basically they’re a group of highwaymen infamous for beating the hell out of the folks they waylay. The fellow in the middle is their leader, Quin Payden. The guy to the left of him is Karg, his lieutenant. Both are nasty fellows.
I rolled some strips of green stuff and cut off the tips, then painted them to look like coins, which I scattered on Quin’s base. I think I stole that particular technique from Cool Mini or Not. I like the end result.
The miniatures are all from Reaper. Quin’s miniature is Dub Bullock, Rogue (03026). Karg is Mack Hardwick, Mercenary Captain (14332). The fellow to the right of Quin is Calbach Greatclub (03231). The guys on each end are Thugs (14329).
Here is a rear view of Quin and Karg. I love the Dub Bullock miniature with the knife behind his back.
In the game, my players decided to fight rather than hand over their money (of course). They killed two thugs and badly wounded a third. Quin was wounded as well, but not before he got a chance to backstab the cleric and take the bard hostage. He escaped with most of their money. Karg got away, too…unscathed.
Bandits rarely change their ways, so there’s a chance they may cross paths with the party again. My players would love some payback.
If Gough sees them again, he is going to hand them a very strongly worded letter that he wrote in disapproval of their rapscallion behavior.
Oh man I am so going to kill you for stabbing me in the back. Great job on all the miniatures by the way.
