    splendid dave!
    the two skulls on the base are a saying "slayer...sword..slayer. ..sword ....

    question: the extreme edge highlights on the red - colour?

    Looking incredible. My only thing and I wonder if this is a photo / screen issue. The rope/binding that ties the skull onto the armour looks very much the same colour as the skull. However perhaps the skull and what holds it on would be the same colour due to gathering dirt in that area ?

    All those little edge highlights bring out the shapes on the armour so well. I hope the person who sculpted this mini sees this paint job as I think you've more than done their sculpting justice.

    Been keeping an eye on this is my absence from the forums....really special and i'm positively clammy with excitement to see this complete.

    Absolutely love the tonal range on that skull...it reminds me of either some game artwork or an illustration I cant quite put my finger on.

    Any reason behind you priming the base?
    Also, is the inside of the armour "collar" grey? will you paint if it is not or it's not worth it?
    It's almost impossible to see the inside of the armour "collar", however, that is of course no reason not to paint it. It's painted with a dark brown to grey stippled gradient so it's been treated the same as the other areas of 'unpainted' armour just very much in shadow.

    I wanted to experiment with zenithal priming for a future project and the base was an ideal candidate. The 'zenithal aspect dosn't show up all that well in the photo but it worked very well and provides a guide for the light & shade so the base will match the megaboss with regards to lighting.

    question: the extreme edge highlights on the red - colour?
    Most of the extreme edge highlights are a pastel peach/orange colour. The absolute extreme highlights on the red are pure white.

    I chose to use a very similar colour for the rope and the skull because I didnt want the rope details to pop out too much. The idea is that it's a lighter coloured rope that has gotten a bit grimy along with the skull. The texture of the rope is what diferentiates it from the skull more than the colour.

    This is a (sort of) current project.
    I'm currently doing the FaceBook 7 Day Art Challenge and as a part of that I've just repaired and restored a formerly lost project from the early 1990s. I posted pics of Ariel long ago but she was always missing something (apart from being the ugliest Elf Queen ever I mean. She looks more like Oberon in drag)

    The piece used to have two wardancers attached but they got smashed off in an accident years ago. The ankles on both minis were roughly snapped off and there was a lot of distortion to all the parts. Yesterday I took a deep breath and did what I could to restore the piece. The ankles are a little wonky but I'm quite pleased with the overall result and it's great to finally be able to share the 'finished' Ariel and Wardancers piece!

    That makes sense about the fixing of the skull and using the texture.

    I remember when you bought this piece into GW Southampton, it was stunning then and still is now. So bright too.

    Excellent article in the January edition of White Dwarf all about you too. Very inspiring to read.

    the drag queen and her body guard look amazing. A riot of colors that all work together and tie into the base. Wonderful piece.

    I remember that conversion! Mike painted his wood elves with a Native American inspired theme.

    Thanks! But it's 6 pages ... just saying
    I met up with Dan Harding last Summer and talked (at him) for an hour and a half in Bugmans Bar. What's in the Mag is an almost exact transcript of our conversation. I couldn't remember much detail of what I said so I've been awaiting it eagerly!

    Dont know about a you being nasty rash, but perhaps a bit annoying with all the attention

    On a serious note fun that you get all the attention well deserved I would say Havent read the WD since I dont play any of those games and currently almost never paint there figure range.

    Keep up the good work.

    /K
    work is boring when it gets in the way of my painting.
