I originally purchased that head from Planetary Dog Toys simply because I thought it was cool and unique, but I had no idea how I planned to use it. I was initially thinking of using it with my Mythic Shoguns and making him an old samurai master, but as I was examining the piece, I got the inspiration to paint him in browns and greens and make him a forest spirit. Looking up different kinds of sprites and Fae, I found a legend from Cornwall about a creature called a Spriggan who are “depicted as grotesquely ugly, wizened old men” and who are “notorious for their unpleasant dispositions, and delighted in working mischief against those who offended them.” Once I read that, I knew this guy would be a Spriggan!
The body on this is a Thumpp with a cape and skirt from a LOTR Faramir. His weapons are all from various LOTR figures as well. His feet are from a Marvel Legends Puma that I repainted to match the head which came from Planetary Dog Toys.
