Well, after many short Sunday-only painting sessions it is finally done! I am very happy with this figure. I think it is my best so far. I really pushed myself with the non-metallic metals and reflections - something I enjoy doing a lot and never thought it could get this complex!

After I read the background story of Sigvald, I got some better ideas for the painting scheme and the base. Aside from the extremely reflective armor (so that he can always look at and admire himself) he also hovers an inch above the ground, and the powers of Chaos shift the terrain around him to create a path. I tried to represent this by having rocks and dirt "moving" up to form a sort of bridge over a lava flow, as well as a Slaanesh symbol formed in lava on the ground. I put a few extra highlights on the ground beneath him to show that he's sort of glowing.

I want to thank everyone in the forums for their kind words, encouragement and helpful advice. I appreciate every comment!

As always comments/critique is most welcomed, and I make sure to return the favor.

Thanks for looking!

Very good work, especially in the sword. Bravo! And I see you're really suffering a lot from snipers. It dropped from 9.4 to 9.1 in just a few votes! Shame on you people!

The NMM on the sword is really perfect. The Gold-NMM looks great, too. 10, 10, 10! Greetz, Jonathan

Wonderful piece. Was great to follow the work in progress thread, and all the little details you have added to the NMM with the underside illumination and hints of reflections are fantastic. Think I'll go put mine back in it's blister

A straight 10 for me, Matt. That NMM is just off the scale... Serious congrats due to you.

By far an awesome mini that covers every aspect in detail. I can't think of anything that was left out aside from having a screaming, nekid divatchka slave begging for mercy from Sigvald. The attention to detail really makes this stand out. Thanks for sharing this with us. Hope to hear about the future you have in store for this mini. Keep us posted!
