WOTC's Male Fighter

2015-01-25 - model number update - this was WOC 40004.  I haven't been able to figure out the sculptor of this model.  Lost Minis Wiki has Mize, Wiebe, and Elliot as the sculptors on other models in the same range.

Dungeons and Dragons is the revamped AD&D system. To celebrate the 25th anniversary, WOTC came out with their own miniatures. This one is the male fighter. I painted this fighter in February of 2001.

The sword is bright, but I just had to do something with it in order to represent a magical sword. I also put a shield on this fighter as he just looked naked without one.

My first attempt at modeling! Nothing dramatic, but I put the two straps on between the glove and the shield. Took me an entire hour - I have new respect for all those craftsman that are making these miniatures.
