Erny has been kind enough to invite a load of smelly oldhammerers over to his abode to play a dungeon delving version on his lovely looking terrain. So I was in need of an Adventurer of some sort. I rummaged around in my piles of lead and came up with several possibilities, Strider from my list of top ten minis , a conversion of the officer from the marksmen of miriglaino, a paladin from the old citadel d&d range. However, none of them were doing it for me. After having a look through the interwebs I decided to do a conversion based on an old Black Tree Design HYW knight. I snipped off his head and then had a hard time deciding which head to replace him with.
The different heads give the figure lots of differing characters. The capped head on the left makes him look like a serious, religious type - a bit of a templar. The cap on the right makes him look a bit shifty, maybe a mercenary.
The figure on the right looks young an inexperienced, the plan was to cut the cap off and replace with hair. The last head shows a more experienced retainer of some sort.
Hopefully he will survive the journey's into the depths and have many colourful adventures in the old world.
