My role playing group recently started a new campaign using the Pathfinder RPG rules. I am an old D&D veteran and have played all editions up to 3.5. I really like the Pathfinder rules as they fixed a lot of little problems with D&D 3.5. Our DM is taking us through the Kingmaker Campaign from Paizo. So far it has been a lot of fun. We have five players and I offered to paint up individual miniatures for everyone's character. I had them select the miniature they wanted to use from the really cool Reaper Miniature figure finder.
We did not really coordinate character builds and everyone just made what they wanted. As it turns out, our party is not really balanced and a bit wizard heavy. So far it hasn't been a problem not having an official "tank" character.
Next up, Nathaniel a half elf Magus (wizard / fighter). Everyone got to pick two primary colors for their miniature, his was black and purple.
Our one female player made a human cleric, Pruvale. She is a cleric of of the sun & fire goddess, so red was her choice for a main color.
One of the guys is playing a female character, a Tiefling Oracle. Apparently he could not find a male Tiefling wielding a pole arm on the the figure finder so decided to make a female character.
Last but not least is Ptolemy, a human summoner. He has proven to be most valuable keeping us alive but summoning monsters each round to tank and absorb damage.
And the group shot. Everyone has really appreciated getting a personalized miniature painted for their character. I am happy to get this project off my work bench.
We meet once a month to play. Last time, we successfully assaulted a bandit king's fort. The DM really did a good job scratch building the fort out of cardboard for the big battle.
D&D still is a nice addition to all the miniature games I play. Thanks for viewing!
