Photo Two - Shows the bare metal miniature based on a 40mm round base from Privateer Press, with the new crest and both Milliput and Green Stuff sculpting. I have always found Jim's sculpting easy to copy and although I would only describe myself as a proficient 'prodder of Green Stuff', I am never-the-less very proud of my attempts.
Photo Three - The same miniature undercoated with Matt Black spray paint.
Photo Four - As usual, I have started with the flesh areas and built up the colour from Games Workshop Snakebite Leather.
Photo Five - The Bronze areas are layered over a Charred Brown base and highlighted with pure Gold acrylic paint.
Photo Six - I wanted a different uniform colour from my earlier troopers and choose Blue, Enchanted Blue over Midnight Blue. Now that the figure is finished and varnished I think that I might have preferred a red uniform instead. Throughout all of these photos, I have touched-up the black areas before moving on to the next stage.
Photo Seven - More detail painting. I choose the red rest to add some much needed colour to the miniature.
Photo Eight - The finished, varnished and flocked Frigia Officer.
I have long harboured plans for a couple of Molemen, an Octopus-headed Humanoid and of course a Brian Blessed Vultan. All of which WILL be detailed here on this Blog should they ever materialise.
Comments as always are very welcome.
