One more dwarf

I decided today would be a good day to devote to painting another dwarf for my warband though I didn't anticipate multiple fights with spilled paint pots and a leaky ink bottle (luckily not too much paint/ink was lost and nothing was damaged.). Hopefully all the messy struggle was worth it. Here he is so far!

I'll probably go back after I'm done with the unit and do a bit of shading and highlighting and whatnot, but my goal right now is just to get a decent paint job on everyone. I used a few unusual color choices with the yellowish-brown spear, axe handle and crossbow which I may go over in a brown ink wash, and the very purple hat. The beard and gloves look very red in the photograph. They don't look quite so intense in person, but they could still use a bit of a wash.

There are quite a few noticeable spots where a bit of paint of another color got onto something, like on the crossbow, which should be covered up by a wash and some highlights. Still, I'm happy enough with him for now and I'm sure I can improve on him later on.

  1. A vary daring ensemble on a cracking sculpt. I think he's come out nicely and I approve of the classic green base.

    In fact, my approval has turned into a Liebster award nomination. I do hope you'll accept!
