You might have noticed that the number one way you can tell that a sculpt is a ranger by his hooded cloak and his bow. Bobby Jackson's ranger sculpt fulfills all the ranger obligations. As an added bonus, he even has a beard -- a small amount of facial hair is rare on miniatures, probably because the detail doesn't show up well. And that unfortunately holds true for Thornwarden.
Until I saw the painted versions of Thornwarden on Reaper's site, I had no idea he had a beard. There's also details along his arms that are easy to miss. This is one of the few sculpts that probably suffered in transition from metal to the Bones format. Still a good ranger, but not a particularly exciting one.
You can buy this miniature at Amazon.
