The theme of the entry figure or Curtgeld posed some problems when first announced. Given that there have been a few Chaos Warriors painted by myself in this year's challenge the first thought was of Elric himself however, a suitable figure just couldn't be found.
So staying with a literary theme another character was brought out of the archives; this time Kheldar from David Eddings' The Belgariad. Kheldar or Silk as he was more commonly known was a small rat faced man who was a thief, trader, spy, assassin and heir to the throne (2nd in line) all in the one package. Silk was mostly a cynic who seemed an unlikely hero and yet a times proved to be more than worth of the title of hero. Of his early days little is known, so with some artistic license and no doublets or jaunty hats here is Silk, Prince Kheldar of Drasnia:
The figure is the Human Assassin from Otherworld Miniatures Dungeon Adventurers range and suited exactly what I was looking for. Kheldar was a knife fighter at heart and the figure shows this well along with other items of his darker trade.
Anyway enough of my ramblings here are the rest of the pictures and I hope that you like them.
As with last year's entry figure I have a second model to paint for my own collection. Safe to say there will be more Otherworld Miniatures joining him throughout the coming months. The points for this figure are over to Curt on this one as it sits in two categories.
That's all for now and please leave comments.
Cheers for now
