Finding Proxies – Part 3


You may recall a while back I expressed the need for a new miniature to represent the Hood in my new ruleset. I had been using Aragorn from GW's release of The Three Hunters (above), but his pose didn't really fit with what I needed.

Well, I have found something much better – not perfect but the closest match to what I have in my head. It's from a little manufacturer called Mad Puppet Miniatures.


This is the Wood Elf from their Fantasy Range and I think he looks awesome. Of course I will have to do some obligatory tinkering (I want to remove the blade in his right hand and replace it with a bow), but it's looking good.


The model arrived today and it looks like both hands will need pinning. Tricky, as they're so small but should be ok. My main concern though, as usual, was the scale – I just felt he was going to be too big. Thankfully I just about get away with it. He looks in good proportion next to the Rangers so that is fine with me!

Now I just need to build and paint it ;)

Add it to the list…!

  1. Oh my, pinning both hands - good luck! Cracking miniature though.

  2. He's not bad at all, like Billy Connolly once said "windswept"!

    1. Yes, he does look all "windswept and interesting".
      Superbly appropriate quote Mr Lee!

  3. Good find. He is even looking down so you can give him that 'moody' look.

    1. I would have loved to have his face in shadow with a lower hood, but all that hair prevents a sensible conversion.

    1. Hopefully will get to him early in the new year. Finished painting Ox today so only two more Guild Ball models to go… for now!
