15mm Robert E. Howard

JADE's switch from 28mm figures to 15mm required a few changes to some of the standing player characters. Thankfully most of the 28mm party member figures were from deprecated campaigns, that we have long since moved on from, and so there were only a few to replace.

However, one of the longer standing parties has been the Barbarian brothers Raymond and Robert E. Howard. I finished Raymond E. Howard's 15mm mini some time ago, and with us picking up our Maze of the Minotaur campaign once again, it was time for Robert to get miniaturized as well.

This mini comes from Ral Partha Europe, in the very same pack that I got the mini for Raymond. You can find him in their Demonworld line which is a pretty interesting looking 15mm fantasy war game. Not that I have tried it.

Anyone know if it is any good?

Currently standing at level 14 in Dungeons and Dragons 3.5, Robert and his brother are certainly a force to be reckoned with. These days we are decked out with magical items, including the Axe of the Sea Reavers, and a Vorpal Sword. Which is just the kind of equipment we need for the non-stop action packed game that is Maze of the Minotaur.

Despite being loaded with some pretty awesome equipment, when it comes down to it, Robert likes to use his hands. Wrestling, punching, kicking, and throwing are how he prefers to fight. In fact Robert usually will leave his sword buried in a fallen foe after only a couple of swings before grappling the rest with his bare hands.

As I write this, Robert and his brother are battling their through a thick monster infested jungle, hunting down their 7th Minotaur, and the only one to have ever escape from their labyrinth. And they couldn't be happier.
