I have painted a number of Dwarf characters over the years, mostly in the form of fighters or clerics. Without a doubt, this Reaper Dwarf wizard is a first for me!
He's a BONES figure (not sure which campaign it's from), which meant I was glad to discover the effectiveness of emery boards in removing mould lines.
I enjoyed how all the vintage wizard features were translated to a Dwarf frame. The hat, staff, pipe and other details are what you would expect to see in a wizard, but each has a dwarf twist. This is typified by the staff, which has a distinctly Dwarven look.
I have painted a few dozen BONES figures now, mostly regular 28mm sized characters. I have painted some ogre sized monsters, but I am still hoping to paint up some of the big beasties!
