The Thief is done! With a gold coin in hand, and a sly look in his eye, The Thief is the newest member of the group. Where The Fighter uses force, a thief relies on stealth, cunning, and skill.

The Thief figure is just about carved! The figure features the grinning Thief, gold coin in one hand, hidden dagger in the other. His belt holds two pouches, an empty knife scabbard, and a coiled rope.
Next I'll carve the facial features, then give it some color with acrylic paint.

The first figure in my group of dungeon-delving heroes is done! The Fighter is the core member of any adventuring party. He's the front line, the sword and shield protecting the less martial characters.
This fighter wears grey armor under "bachelor button blue" robes, and a crimson cape to better find him on the battlefield. His shield device is a diving swallow, inspired by the neck label on a bottle of Powers Irish whiskey.
All figures in this project will wear matching gold cloak clasps w/emerald gems. The Fighter wears his on his left breast.
Up next: The Thief!
