Games-Workshop's Bertrand The Brigand

This figure is the leader of my Bretonnian Archers. Who are we really kidding - it's Robin Hood and his gang! This was my first metal mini where highlighting and shading techniques started to actually work. Unfortunately, the scan makes it difficult to see the white or the green/brown shades. Therefore tried to select a happy medium. Completed in July of 2000.
