Well another mini completed today. Pretty happy with the outcome, I think the dull muted tones I choose really help hammer home the fact that he is a wood elf. I also went for less pinky skin then the barbarian. Instead of mixing red gore into the basecoat, I used a smidgeon of grey, to give a more ashen elfy look.
I used washes to shade all the fabrics. I did this carefully and slowly building up the layers like you would in a water colour painting. Created a lovely softness to the piece I feel. Main 4 colours I choose for this model were Vallejo game colour: Earth, Cayman Green, Terracotta and desert yellow. Also went for the non standard purple gems just to be different.
I remember him from ages ago. I think you spent more time painting him than I did. You have painted him well, the addition of purple gems does help separate him from the blue gems in common with High Elves and make him more of a Wood Elf. I have the Barbarian too. I'm not sure if it's the same model but I think he has rather large man-boobs from what I remember.
I like, alot. Another excellent piece Gareth.
