I have 3 criteria for judging Hero Forge miniatures.
1) technical skill
3) thematic expression
“Mushroom Leshy Druid” checks all three of these boxes. The designer, Garzhovog, masterfully blended the colors, the added assets (the animals), and extra details like the grass and the wrist covers. How they hide the figures’ faces in shadows is both innovative and challenging. They needed to manipulate the lighting around the figure quite a bit to achieve this effect. And thematically, there is no doubt this represents a stalwart guardian of the forest. Club in one hand, adorable woodland creature in the other, no one enters the Woodlands without permission from Mushroom Leshy Druid!
