For a change of pace I decided to work on a single 28mm figure.
Bertok is a metal figure from Reaper that I got as part of a learn to paint kit. I had intended to follow the guide, but came up with some ideas of my own and did it my own way.
He is freakishly big and muscled compared to most 28mm figures, especially the ones from Games Workshop in the late 80's and early 90's.
I thought I'd paint him up as a Chaos thug for my up coming Chaos army. Although my army is going to be Tzeentch, Bertok's color scheme is slightly Khorne with the red and brass/gold accents. It doesn't come across in the photo that well but his hair is Purple. I used the Vampiric skin triad from Reaper and I really like how it came out. Just a hint of purple. Originally I was going t mix purple into my regular flesh color.
In a departure from the norm I only put grunge wash on the no flesh portions. I felt the brown in the wash would ruin the lovely pallor of the skin.
I hope you like him. Chalk up 5 more point. Woohoo!
Nice work Sean! I like his purple hair and the very pale skin-tone you chose to use. Very suiting for a barbarian of Tzeentch. For those who have read the Erikson books, this figure might make a good Karsa Orlong as well, with a bit of modification.
A very nice mini Sean!
