Beer and D6s Drunk Barbarian Now Available

Beer and D6s now has their Drunk Barbarian miniature available over in their webshop.
He’s almost in a Freddie Mercury pose there.


From the release:

Barbarians are the ultimate drunken warriors. Once the fighting starts they charge in with reckless abandon and blind rage. Forgoing armour or any sort of protection they become so drunk that they ignore pain and damage to their bodies as they brutally hammer away at their enemies with unstoppable beer fuelled rage.

The Barbarian is the perfect choice for someone who wants to deal incredible amounts of damage, but be prepared for all the drinking you’re going to have to do. With no protection and lots of attacks, the barbarian’s wild swings are going to draw a lot of attention.

  • What is the weird muscle going to his left arm from his pectorals?

    • Vaxillus

      You mean his Pectoralis? That’s actually how the muscle looks when you’re that buff and raise your arm up like that.

      • Ghool

        It’s just painted with very stylized lighting, and it’s flattening out the top of the muscle quite a bit.

        • Soulfinger

          Gamers debating muscles. Classic!

            I had a bus load of WWE wrestler people come into my store once. As a body builder type myself, they appreciated my assistance with painting and several of my customers in the store were flabbergasted that “wrastlers” played minis games and painted. They were pretty charming and spent a fair bit of money on minis and paints.
            Most of them had their models with them and tried to get their other wrestler buds to join in and paint while they did their national tour. They hung out and painted for several hours until they had to go to do their show prep for the night. I think my favorite moment was when one of the kids asked why one of them was playing Catachans and he gave the kid a goofy grin, flexed, and looked at his arm and then looked at the model and said because he can look in the mirror and paint the highlights easy. The poor kid didn’t get the humor. The giant graphics covered bus in front of the shop certainly helped pick up my walk in traffic that day.

            That’s awesome and certainly the sort of unexpected and refreshing story that helps offset my experiences with the ‘typical gamer.’ I’m amazed those guys have the time, but I can see how painting a figure would be a nice meditative thing to do following some intense exercise.

        • 4tonmantis

          I think the highlight is a little low but yeah..
          I have had to look up chest reference quite a few times for that pose because it doesn’t always seem intuitive.

  • KelRiever

    They say he’s drunk. I say he’s drunk and playing Dance Dance Revolution!

    The positioning of the legs makes it look like he has to pee.

    • Soulfinger

      That’s how I pee. I call it my “Valhalla” stance, and then with one leg braced on the toilet and tp in place of the tankard when I wipe. The raised fist is always necessary to show how bad ass you are and to keep people from talking to you at public urinals.

      • I never though I’d ask this, but if that’s how you pee it really begs the question “how do you poo?”

      • 4tonmantis

        Do you carry around a Pocket-Mjolnir for when you have to go?

  • sprue

    I’m very happy that my sculpting lead to these topics of discussion. Doing something right! 😉
