This is the Druid (not to be confused with the “Druid with Dart” from the same set…) from the Grenadier Wizards Box Set 2001.
This druid takes a different approach, preferring the sword-and-board style. The set insert that I have has this listed as a druid, but I’m sure that in another insert this mini was listed as “fighter/magic-user.” He is a simple mini; mostly just robes and hat. I did my best to push up the contrast on him with the highlighting so that he wouldn’t be so drab and monotone.
This is the Druid with Dart from the Grenadier Wizards Box Set 2001.
The dart that was originally in this guy’s hand was a tiny little limp carrot-looking thing. I debated a long time whether to leave it as original or upgrade it. In the end, I couldn’t stand that silly little droopy thing, so I cut it off, drilled out the hand, and fashioned a new dart with a paper clip segment.
I also couldn’t make out what was supposed to be on the end of his staff. Was it a puff of smoke? An abstract carving? Fire? A creature sitting there? I went with a creature. Druids can get animal companions, and this looks like it could be some little lizard companion. It’s a pretty talented lizard to perch like that on the end of a staff while the staff-holder is jerking it around while throwing darts. It must have a very high dexterity score.
I couldn’t decide what colors to paint this. So I asked by 7-year-old for help. The color scheme is all her’s.
