Another entry in the AHPC Chambers of Challenge, this time my "The Snow Lord’s Treasury" submission.
The treasury needs constant replenishment, these huge armies and palaces don't pay for themselves so this tax collector has been sent out to ensure that the peasantry contribute their Écu to the cause.
The tax collector is a "Government Representative on Mission" from Eureka Miniatures his stern gaze and pot-metal sword should be enough to convince the Third Estate to contribute their measly tithe.
The size of his chest represents the low expectations of the haul. I had planned to use a bigger chest, but I think they must already be packed away for the move, so this small one from the Cantiniere will have to suffice.
