Angus the Scottish Dwarf

Meet Angus the Scottish Dwarf, he is an old GW figure from way back in 1980's that has been lying patiently in a box waiting to be painted. This figure represents a first for me as I have never tried NMM before but thanks to the Saxon Angel who wanted to see me try NMM as she thought I would be good at it here is my attempt the NMM parts are the mustahe rings, sword hilt, sword pommel and the arm grieves in NMM gold which I wanted to look a light gold and the NMM steel on th eblade which I was affraid to go too grey or too blue but just might have managed to pull th ecolour off OK. All comments are welcome as always.

That tartan is making my eyes hurt :) I'd like a straight on so I could see the face's expression better. That's a good lip color. The sword looks good, but I'm not sure there is enough surface area to pull off a convincing NMM on the gold bits.

Well I guess I just HAVE to comment on this. :) This is an excellent first NMM. Don't worry about going too blue or grey on the silver NMM. I think your sword is very well done. The studs on the shield need a little more contrast though. His gold armband is great. The hilt and pommel (sp?) on the sword need some sharper white highlights like the armband. Being a good Scotsman, I think his nose should be a tad more reddish (from drinking of course! ;) ) but that's a personal preference. Otherwise I just love this little guy. I guess because this is currently your highest rated miniature that you ARE very good at NMM. Thanks for proving me right. So I expect to see more in the future. :D Great Job!
