What is it and why did I buy it?

I bought this from a friend in the early 2000s for around $10. He was selling some of his gaming stuff just prior to being deployed to the Middle East. He painted it.

At that time I lacked miniatures for D&D. It was the Heady Days of D&D Third Edition, and the game almost required that you have miniatures.

Why did I sell it?

The unicorn rider never saw use on the tabletop in roleplaying or wargaming. It’s a shame, because I liked the miniature. But nobody in my D&D group ever played a character who rode a unicorn, and I don’t recall unicorns featured in any of my campaigns.

Also, the miniature was a true 25mm, which meant it was small in comparison to my other figures.

And so, in June of 2014 I sold it on Ebay, advertising it as a good birthday gift.
