I finished this guys along with the contemptor I posted earlier in the week. He's part of the Fury of the Ancients army I am building.
I completely stole the basing idea from Lil Legend Studios, though I think theirs was executed better. but hey, they are commission painters, they should be better!
The blood on the claw is, as usual, Tamia Clear Red, applied over the matt varnish, so one of the final steps. But applying it last means it stays mice and glossy and it's translucency means it generally gives a pleasing blood effect.
I brought the plastic dread of my mate Steve and re-used the arms elsewhere. Yes, it was an expensive base but I just couldn't resist. You've already spent £75 on a centrepiece model, there's no point in skimping on the base!!
This model was a beautiful kit to put together, with next to no mould lines or slip. However, handling it kinda made holding a contemptor, itself an impressive kit, feel a bit small!
Anyway, I hope you like this guy. Two more to go after this...
