Shaeress Nashanneth, Dark Elf Queen


It's not easy being a dark elf queen. Because the definition of a dark elf largely relies on the color of the sculpt's skin, you have to ask -- what makes a dark elf an elf besides a coat of dark paint? Werner Klocke does his best to make Sharwhatshername Nashunpronounceable look queen-like.

Like most of Herr Klocke's sculpts, Shaeress isn't big on clothing that doesn't lift and separate. She wields a sacrificial dagger in one hand and a staff (topped by a magical crystal) in the other. Shaeress seems like less a queen and more like a priestess, but if you know anything about typical D&D drow culture this isn't necessarily uncommon. Less forgivable is her lack of queenly attire -- there's no crown, unless you count Shaeress' massive head of hair.

Still, what Shaeress lacks in queen clothes she makes up with her imperious stance. Klocke nails the look of "I"M the queen!" She's just more high priestess than high royalty. You can purchase this figure at Noble Knight Games.
