Misguided Geek’s first Pathfinder Campaign.
So as chronicled in my last Pathfinder post, we created our characters for this first campaign. I created a Neutral Good, Human, Ranger (archer specialty) whose name I don’t know yet (Jex Battlewood?). My next step was choosing my mini, which serves as my game piece on the board. If I haven’t said it already, I am a complete novice, this is my very first experience with any type of table top RPG, I didn’t even know there was a board I just thought the game was played in everyone’s head. Anyway, with some direction from my group I went with the guy pictured above, Zandu Vorcyon by Reaper Miniatures.
Unbeknownst to me, the minis come unpainted, although you can buy pre-painted, plastic figures if you choose. It is, according to my crew, a rite of passage to choose and paint your first mini rather than buying one of the pre-made variants. So, today after work, Im stopping by one of the players homes for a group paint session with some of the other members of the crew. I think it will be fun, however my only experience at all like this is painting a mini model of the Reliant (from ST II Wrath of Khan) that my dad got me. This did not go well, and in my frustration I broke the starboard warp nacelle… hopefully Zandu (Jex?) ends up in better shape than the poor Reliant. Once I have him painted up, Ill post back here. Also, look for an update on Monday on my first experience, you know, actually playing the game.
