The latest in my series of "If I can do it, so can you," I present to you the mini for my new D&D character.
This was done using the Citadel system of foundation paints, base colors and washes. It's Reaper #3358, Eldolan, Elf Fighter, by my favorite mini sculptor, Werner Klocke.
I've been looking closer at D&D 4 multi-classing. It's not as limited as I first thought. This new character is multi-classed into Wizard, since our party lacks a controller. Just a couple of spells to take out or slow down a horde of minions is all he needs to be vastly more helpful to the party. If we didn't have another leader who could heal, I could have gone multi-class cleric. Without a fighter he could have been a more combat oriented warlord or even multiclassed into fighter or ranger. The advice I heard over and over again is you can't really build your character in a vacuum anymore, and multiclassing especially so. You give up a feat to be more versatile; not more powerful, more versatile. It's vital to cherry pick the right powers to avoid a deficit.
