Heroquest Barbarian Mission 6: the Empire Hunter

Saving Sir Ragnar. A brave Empire Hunter escorts to safety the rescued prisoner (I've changed Sir Ragnar face, now he has a mustache). Two Heroes ready but not yet anyone of the original four ones...

The starting miniature was a very old Elf, from the box Fantasy Regiments. I replaced his head with the Advanced HeroQuest Warrior's helmet and I sculpted the face with green stuff. I replaced his feet too, before those boots were too pointed (Elfish style), and the plume too, with this pale red tuft I don't remember where I got it.


Above the green stuff work and the firts steps of the painting. When I finished the model I had the great idea to add the bowstring. It was a lot of work, but it was worth it.

A lot of green for this Empire Hunter (his eyes too): he is deployed in the vanguard  and explores the dungeons if necessary, to grant the safety of his marching fellows.

I found this picture with the legendary Heroes of Dungeon Quest, it can be useful to compare the scale with Heroquest miniatures.
