Heh. I crack myself up.
So, I finished a mini for a friend of mine. He said he wanted a barbarian/viking, and so I started digging through my minis box(es), and found something suitable. It was only after I was about halfway done that I realized he was Hercules. But whatever. I made him a viking shield, and it turned out okay. He was happy with it, which means I’m happy with it. ☺
He turned out pretty well for a tabletop mini, and considering I only spent about 5 hours on him. He was a fun mini.
I also worked some more on my exchange mini. I’m changing some stuff up since I took these pictures, but I’m planning on having her come out of a saloon.
Now it’s square, but you get the idea.
Then I ordered some scale75 paints, and they came in! I really liked working with them. I still have a lot of work to do to get my skin the way I like it. I really like the way these paints work…. They’ve got a really great coverage, but they also blend better than anything else I’ve used.
I kinda played around with it to see how much blending and stuff it would take to make these really work for me. This guy had a lot of exposed skin, so he became my Guinea pig.
He’s a little bit pinker in real life.
You can see someof the contrast better here.
Gonna work some more on the skin paints and my exchange mini. Hope Y’all like it!

I like the freehand design on the shield. Far more symmetrical than I can manage myself. Nice work on the wood grain too. I find that figs pectoral muscle a bit funny (the sculpt), not sure what it is exactly…..points too far lateral?
Thanks! I sculpted the woodgrain, so painting it was easy. I think you’re right about the pecs. I thought they were a little off too.
