Been laid low recently with a tooth infection. It seems with the pandemic the only solution to serious toothache is to nuke it from orbit with megaton antibiotics and painkillers. Still, it was the cheapest private consultation I've ever had costing me precisely nothing save my time. More money for miniatures I guess...
I was feeling better this afternoon so decided to continue my famous familar project with this little chap. The Mannequin. Not the best photograph I know, but at least he is finished. I tried to capture a feel of woodgrain paintig him up and I am not sure I was successful. What do you think, dear readers?
The club also proved a problem as it ended up looking too similar to the body of the model. In the end I mixed red in with brown and highlighted the weapon up as normal. I added a tiny bit of blue verdigris on the bronze studs but it hasn't come out too clear here.
Still, he was fun to paint after a while away. I'll see if I can take some better snaps when I finish the next batch of familiars that I have started. Each is a joy to work with. So full of character and imagination. I discovered today that GW have produced a set for the 21st century. Not a patch on these metal original in my opinion but each to their own.
