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!

Top job Matt. Probably best non-metallic gold I've seen. Love the simple but narrative nature of the whole figure

Absolutely stunning! I read your WIP in one go, great stuff But... to be honest the base could be a little more spectacular (but I guess that's because you raised the expectation level sooooo high haha!) and you have to include a front view of the shield in these pics for people who are to lazy to check the forums.

This is simply the most convincing gold-se-nmm I have ever seen! Maybe the base could have been a bit more spectacular, but I would be an arse to vote any lower than 10! it was a pleasure to follow your great "little" sunday project. It should be made into a permanent tutorial. Would you mind taking the time? *begging*
