Pre-Slotta Citadel Ranger

I recently snaffled this figure on eBay for the bargain price of £1.24. I have no recollection of it back in the 80s but further investigation lead me to discover he was apparently part of the Citadel 25mm Dungeon Adventurers Starter Set – Rookbrow the Ranger. Released in 1983, the year before I started the hobby, he has lovely crisp detail in comparison to lots of similar figures of this period.

He’s an interesting ranger/woodsman figure that puts me in mind of Strider/Aragorn in Ralph Baksh’s 1978 Lord of the Rings cartoon.
