Re: Faces of Felstad: Brazen Skull Brotherhood (new June 28)

They might be good at their trade, but they absolutely lack PR skills. Brazen Skull Brotherhood sounds more like a cult instead of a company of "honourable contractors" such as they are.

They mostly work for adventurers, particularly relative newbies who are looking to hire extra muscle to help deal with caves full of kobolds and goblins and the like.  A bit of edginess sells to that crowd.  More experienced parties don't make great employers for mercs, even fairly well-trained ones.  They tend to be careless about throwing AoE spells around and often see NPCs (ie everyone who's not a long-term party member) as expendable.

The actual sinister cult is coming up in another couple of posts.  :)

One last post for June, this time the aforementioned sinister Cult of Violet Shadows, who've been playing random baddies (and occasionally a Summoner wizard's crew) around my version of Felstad for quite a while now.  Lots of photos at the blog link:

Wargames Atlantic's giant spider box contributed the limbs.  As  I said on the blog post itself, the head on the demon came from the bits box, specifically a leftover from a botched KS that never went to full retail sale so I won't tease people with it.

I've said this before but I'll say it again, that spiders kit is great but it handicaps itself badly by showing less than half the contents on the box photos.  You get twelve of each size of spider rather than just six, plus six of each of the two wrapped-up victim sculpts and a plethora of spare limbs (and maybe techno-bits if you don't build the scifi versions).  Even after building the whole box and doing these conversions and some others I've still got a fair pile of scuttler legs in the bits box.  Great deal all around.

New post in the series, showing off a bunch of no-talent bums, louts and oafs, their slightly more cunning pal Bloody Jack Fracks, and a new house rule to mix things up a bit in your McCullough games.

Great stuff as usual mate! Your “blood soaked” house rule sounds good.

Thanks, although the sculptor deserves most of the credit there.  Really excellent amount of variety and personality in all the North Star plastic heads I've had teh pleasure of working with.

New blog post in this series showing off the regular everyday sellswords loafing about outside of Felstad waiting for some wizard to pay for their living expenses and no doubt indulging in a little light banditry while doing so.

Work is work and at the end of the day one needs to have some sustenance  :D
