Grenadier: Hirelings (part 1)

These are the first 4 minis from the Grenadier’s Hirelings box set. There are 9 minis in the set, but one of them is a sculpt of two people carrying a large chest, so I guess that’s why they felt they could get away with only 9 minis instead of the usual 10 in the box. These are the unsung heroes of any D&D game; the poor suckers that get hired by adventurers to carry their loot and look after their horses for a pittance of coins and a healthy dose of certain death. I imagine that the weapons and armor they have are mostly junk that they picked up from monsters that the adventurers slew.

The first is the “Pack Bearer,” and is the first mini I’ve painted with a definite “African American” skintone.

The second is labeled “/W Coin Chest” on the box set insert.

The third is labeled “W/ Jewel Box” on the box set insert.

The fourth is labeled “Spiking” on the box set insert.
