Similar to the savage dwarf this mini was also intended to take part in my Dark Sun game. The campaign setting created an interesting painting challenge for me since there was practically no metal in the world, therefore I couldn't really use metallic paints. I had to paint what would normally be silver or gold as other materials like leather, bone, and wood. Plus it needed to have a desert theme.
Since there were very few minis that were actually made for the Dark Sun
setting I had to find minis that could fit in with a palette swap. This
guy was one of them.
