Reaper Bones review #48: Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard

Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard


It's interesting that when some sculpts are male it isn't noteworthy enough to include it in the title; Anirion's title isn't "Male Wood Elf Wizard." Bobby Jackson does an adequate job of sculpting a figure that stands there with a staff -- but in contrast to Autumn Bronzeleaf, he's certainly more wizard than she is. But in this case a gender appellation would actually help, because it's hard to tell exactly what is lurking under Anirion's hooded cloak.

As mysterious characters go Anirion isn't bad. His hair peeks out as he stares down, all serious wizard business. He clutches his staff in both hands, a gesture he probably copied from Gandalf. But really what distinguishes him is his paint job, so I used a green palette (if you're seeing a pattern, I painted all my elves at the same time). You can order this miniature at Noble Knight Games.
