Ludwig Von Barkhoven - part two



I decided that Ludwig would be a hound dog and painted him with a Brown and White sectioned face. The Brown was basecoated Charred Brown from Vallejo and highlighted up to 100% Snakebite Leather.

The White started as Stonewall Grey and was highlighted up to pure Skull White.

Prior to starting the painting, I added a couple of large buttons to his sleeves and a couple to the back of his coat.



Barkhoven's coat was always going to be Red/Brown and I mixed up some Charred Brown and Blood Red as a base. Highlighting to pure Blood Red on the jacket collar and shoulders.




This Special Edition miniature from Alternative Armies is just full of character and a real joy to paint.

Lovely model, lots of character and good choice of colours!
Is he a one-off, or does he belong to a wider range of minis?
