WIP - Officer of the Guide Part 4

I'm slowing a bit on Slaine, so I hopped back to the Officer of the Guide figure.  I used some sand colors on the base, but I plan to go over it with some pigments to add a bit more depth to the color once the rest is finished.  The boots were a challenge.  Shiny black is tough but I think it came out pretty well.  In person I can see some of the blends still need a bit of work, so I'm not completely finished with it.  I also attached and painted the scabbard.  I was leaving it out of the way while I did the brunt of the base work.  That was another good project for the Scale75 metallics.  Again I used a base of Necro Gold + Reaper's Imperial Purple, then transitioned to Elven Metal and finally Citrine Alchemy for the top highlights.

I also did a little tweaking on Slaine.  There are some claw scratches sculpted into his left shoulder.  Now that the tattoo was in place I could go back over it with some blood (Tamiya Clear Red) coming from the cuts.

  1. Nice work on both of these figures.

    I like the way you have painted the Red in the top figure and the Tartan in the lower one.
