Last week I had the pleasure of painting up the pre-slotta Werebear model from Ral Partha and some eagle-eyed readers on the Facebook group noticed that the model bore a slight resemblance to the Mighty Avenger, Bryan Ansell himself. Steve Casey was quick to point out that there was indeed a Bryan Ansell model out there that shared a striking resemblance to the Werebear, and here it is... The famous (or should that be infamous?) Midland Troll!
I had such a good time painting up the previous model that I decided to spend some time this Bank Holiday Monday painting the other one, only with the green tunic replaced with a mighty Foundry T-Shirt!
Yellow is a very difficult colour to paint I have found and this was the first time I ever worked with it over such a large area but I feel that I have handled the tone reasonably well. Its simple a Sunburst Yellow basecoat worked up with Foundry's Boneyard Light in the same fashion as the Werebear. I was also keen to work on my skin painting once more, this time trying to nod towards Mike McVey rather than Kevin Dallimore.
The two models hare exactly the same base, and I managed to get a 'Chico style' (ie blurry) picture of the bottom of the base before I stuck it down. I plan to add a few more items of detail to the bases of these two models until I would consider them finished. I sculpted some mushrooms earlier on today and I shall be painting them up and adding them to the bases - perhaps with a little static grass too - in the near future.
I hope you enjoy my painting efforts!
