Basic Rolepaying (BRP) with miniatures - part 2 - Meraung the Elf Rogue

In the last post I mentioned that I have been painting the main characters for my roleplaying group's player characters. The first one finished was "Bullseye" Berry, the human ranger.

This post is for the second player character, Meraung the Elf Rogue.

Meraung, rogue, at your service!

In truth, Meraung is an escaped Dark Elf.

Having been in servitude back in his homeland since childhood, Meraung managed to flee his master and make a life for himself on the streets, eventually making his way to the Old World. From the day he arrived in the Old World to this day, he has been mistaken for a High Elf and Meraung is keeping it that way.

Spying out the enemy lines, Meraung earns his keep..

Leaving his life as a cut purse behind, Meraung has taken to selling his services as a mercenary for hire, often finding himself hired on as a guardsman to many a merchant caravan. Its in this capacity that he began his life as an adventurer.

Dangerous work! Still, it beats life where he was born. And in the Old World there is little chance of him running in to anyone he knew in his former life.

This miniature is another from Reaper Miniatures called Elladan, Elf (product 02543). Another nicely detailed mini from Reaper.

Not sure if you can see it, but even managed to paint his eye's yellow! Below are some final shots with different contrasts. Only two more (actually three more) to go!

Yellow eyes... creepy....
