Thrud The Barbarian

Twenty-five years of sitting in a mountain of unpainted lead should be enough for any miniature to endure, sadly this was the fate of the mighty Thrud the Barbarian, produced by Citadel Miniatures in 1984 as part of their 'White Dwarf Personality' set (IIRC it was Gobbledigook I was really after!).

Anyhow, after said quarter of a century (ouch!), Thrud now stands proud and bloodied, axe poised ready to wreak violence on anyone who crosses his path (he may even make it onto the gaming table, I kind of like the idea of him being a chaos champion...).

For the uninitiated Thrud was a comic strip character created by Carl Critchow and appeared in White Dwarf in the days of yore. In recent years he has made a comeback in his own full colour comic, which I thoroughly recommend to anyone with a sense of humour...

  1. Brilliant mate - I have loved Thrudd for many, many years. This fig would make a fanastic God element for HotT too.
