Neglected models: elf wizard

I played Warhammer Quest during its original run. One of the characters, and Elf Ranger, came in two flavours. You could take a warrior version or a wizard version of the Elf Range character, and they would develop quite differently, with access to different skills and abilities.

The miniature that came int he box leaned towards the warrior version in appearance, so I picked up this model to be the wizard:


As you can see from the bare metal, this idea did not come to fruition. The year stamp under the base says 1986, but I would have acquired this model around 1995 for the stated purpose. The sculptor was Sandra Garrity, who still sculpts today for Reaper among others.

Here he is painted and ready to enter a dungeon. Better late than never:


Speaking of late, I did not get this model painted in the alotted hour, I needed and extra 9 minutes to finish him off. But since I painted the Hive Scum model in 51 minutes, I felt okay about that. As you can see from the next image, I used one or two paints:


Amazing how they add up!

    I sure hope his buddies weren’t counting on him to save their bacon from a dungeon monster 😉

    Excellent work, especially for one hour. I barely apply the basecoat in that time. The colour scheme looks great and the guy looks a bit like He Man.

      I must admit the clock does not start ticking until the basecoat is done, and I don’t count the time for basing either!
