Who could resist wielding that "mace" of his?

I was but jesting, random attribution/DM's choice works fine for me too :)

Sorry to be awkward bit I'd rather keep hold of my character.

No problem, I really get it and I wouldn't want anybody to play a character of mine. I really like how th echaracters are played how they are (and let's face it they are good because they reflect their player ;). Let's make it quick to get in the open air again for some adventures then :D

No awkwardness, I'm easy either way.

I don't know what would happen if Weazil got control of Robin, to be honest :D

It may not be to everybody's taste so I would understand if some don't fancy the idea but it's something I've done in the past and which was particularly funny so here it is. Just the idea.


I suspect this is the time when we'd discover Seu was in fact a crack fiend and Robin was, in fact, a woman...

Still, I'd be happy to take any of the characters out for a spin :)

I have to confess, though I launched the idea, I think it would have been premature, the characters have to have been played a lot befoore doing that, for now, I have to say I'm enjoying a lot discovering our new mage, God, I had a laugh at Peregrin Mason and all that chandelier thing :D

Okay chaps, our enigmatic new elf friend has a guitar in his case, but we haven't seen it yet... and i'm wondering, what does it look like?

So show me what you think it looks like! Post a photo, draw a scribble, whatever. Bear in mind that whatever we go for, I need to make for the miniature i finally found buried under 13 layers of assorted plasticard cuttings, sawdust, putty leavings and lead deposits. Dazzle me! :D

I could probably blacken whole pages of this thread about the guitars but let's not do that.

Although Yngwie's name is a reference to a certain shredder, let's stop the reference here shall we?

We could pick from John Petrucci's Ibanez signature before he commited with Music man :

But its is highly impossible to paint (PIcasso drawings) and the red and green one is really ugly) a freind of mine has the far right one and I have to say it does look good in real.

We could also pick from Dimebag Darrel's guitars :

Image

This would be a nice hommage but I feel Yngwie is far more peaceful than Darrel...

Maybe the best embodiment of Yngwie and his guitar could be Steve Vai and his EVO (notice the handle to go in fights) :

and let's not use this version of it :

Image

Maybe a simple Gibson flying V could do the trick too :

Anyway, I think my favorite is STeve Vai because it's a reference to a good guitar and good guitarist, plus it's an easy one to paint and model. That and I think I still have one I made in P-card somewhere I could send you along some other goodness in an hypothetical package I could send to Australia ...

I must admit, at first i was all set on a Dimebag style instrument simply because the shape is so dynamic, however... your reasoning behind picking the EVO has seriously swung my opinion. Plus if you already have one made.........

Does anyone else have some input into this before i make my final choice? :D

Whatever the choice, I'm picking some Pcard to make an EVO this WE (the wife will want me to watch "the voice" with her to tell her if people sing right so I better get something to work in the meantime), I'll put it in the post with some other stuff for you Aussies and you can decide what you keep in the end (I promise I won't be offended if you don't pick mine).
Come on, just look at Steve's face, doesn't he scream "Elf guitarist of love" to you? he was Frank Zappa's "stunt guitarist" for Christ Sake!
