Empire Captain

This figure was a late assault on UK Golden Demon 2004, largely converted and painted in the last two days prior to the event. He made first cut but failed to place for a trophy.

He's not that complicated being made mostly from the Empire Command Sprue. The pieces were cut around a little and a few extra components added. Few details in greenstuff, but not much. The biggest conversion was the addition of a cloak made from Amazon Grey Matter (their sculpting putty). Odd stuff to use but it's excellent for drapery as it has a period about an hour into curing where it can be rolled out, cut and messed around with very cleanly.

Although it failed to place I'm happy with the result. I feel it's a bit 'underdone' in places but I'm very proud of the freehand on his shield. Probably the best I've done.

I really like this guy a lot, I wish GW would make some decent characters on foot so we could see figures worth painting this well more often Right now I'm always raiding the Mordheim ranges looking for anything with detail for Empire characters.

This figure is quite excellent. Excellent work on the cape. The fluid motion really catches the eye. To do such an excellent job in such a short period of time is truly amazing.

i am a big fan of the stuff you do. it just seems so effortlessly smooth. maybe not gritty enough for GW. please tell us how you get such clean flowing colours!!!

very nice one ! The "cape" (the tissu piece on his back, I don't remember how to say that in english, lol) is well made as painted, the armour is very nice too. Well face expression ans I like his blue eyes. The shield and the freehand is a very good job. Maybe you schould highlight the little blacks squares on the "cape" Nice Ostlander (I suppose he is).

I am sorry to hear this didn't place. This is an excellent characterization. The man just looks so believable. Great job, especially on the face, the freehand...oh and the cape. lol
