From his remote tower, The Silent Sorcerer sends forth nonsensical artwork and useless gaming tools. He also likes to discuss RPGs, boardgames, miniatures painting, writing, movies, books, and whatever else strikes his fancy. Mostly though, his goal is to provide fun and goofy things to inspire others in their games. Enjoy!

This week we again have a very old miniature molded in plastic, and once more it is from the 1990 Milton Bradley edition of HeroQuest. This is the barbarian, and again for those of you who might not be familiar, HeroQuest was a dungeon crawling board game that was a joint effort between Games Workshop and Milton Bradley. It was played by played by up to four players and a referee. Imagine an older simpler version of Descent: Journeys in the Dark. There were four available characters in the base game, the elf, the dwarf, the barbarian, and the wizard. The casts are fairly simplistic, but I thought that it would be fun to paint them, and they will certainly look better on the board. Anyone familiar with this blog knows that I paint a lot of barbarians, so this one was a no-brainer. :-)
