Meet the PC: Aeon, Dwarf Revenant Assassin

One of my favorite parts about tabletop roleplaying is finding, modeling, and painting the perfect miniatures for our party PCs. I've been doing this for years now, and thought I'd share some of these characters with you.

The third party member of our ill-fated "Everyman Company" was Aeon, an undead Dwarf assassin played by mu buddy Roshko. I don't remember the whole back-story, but nobody in the world had seen a dwarf following an ancient cataclysm. Aeon here had been a lore keeper, and awoke a millennium later and set out in search of answers.

I'd say that Roshko has a strong affinity for playing whatever classes & races are new & shiny, and this campaign began shortly after the 4th edition book "Heroes of Shadow" which introduced Assassins as well as the Dragon magazine that kicked off the Revenant race. The concept was cool on paper, but in practice he was a mid-range DPS that couldn't stay in melee for too long since his HP was so low. This made him a bit of a glass hammer.

The character mini was an easy choice. You can't get a much more shadowy dwarf than Reaper's Klaus Copperthumb. He was the whole package, dark cloak, knives & throwing axes, light armor. All I really had to do was paint him in dark, desaturated tones to emphasize his post-vascular existence.
