Dungeons & Dragons – Bard with Pipe and Lute (Darksword Miniatures)

I’ve been planning on taking a Short Rest from DMing after running regular games since beginning of 2018 and some of my players have stepped up to DM.

Unfortunately we have been hit by the Corona virus lockdown so we’ve had to migrate online for playing and I don’t want put this on my players so for the time being I will be DMing, which is fine.

However, I did make a lvl 1 character, a bard called Jean-Jacques La Cour and this is the mini picked.

I was struggling with a colour scheme and my wife suggested bassing it on Oberyn “the Viper” Martell from Game of Thrones, which I thought was a great idea as I’ve used GOT as inspiration before when I painted the Lion Knight for Kingdom Death: Monster.

I’m not sure the result is as good as I had hoped but I do love the unusual colour scheme for a fantasy character.

Prince Oberyn has stars on his cloak that fits a seemingly random pattern, I like this and I am guessing it is actually star chart so I added stars to the bard’s cloak based on a star sign. I did connect them with lines to make it more obvious.

Again, I think the idea is great but not sure I’m happy with the result.
