KyleC: Ogre Player for Blood Bowl (10 points)
I am really struggling to get the ECW unit finished here with all the details that exist on them. And then this guy ( and some of his pals ) arrived in the mail. So I cracked him open immediately and went to town on painting him up.
I made sure to make his colors the same as the rest of the Human team. Trying to do a more grey pants/trouser section, with his armor sections being the team colors. He has a lot of leather sections and metal parts also.
What I don't like of my painting of him was how the skin turned out. It was really a struggle for some reason compared to the rest of the team. Then again there is a lot more skin on this bad boy compared to the rest.
I thought that the orange inbetween the grey sections on the trousers would look good, and I think it came through in the end.
Here he is now alongside the rest of the team. And I am looking forward to seeing how he does in games coming up soon!
Oh and a quick shot of him compared to a regular lineman before I started the painting. Standing quite a bit larger than 40mm in height, he wont be the biggest mode on the field though. Just hope he is big enough in the end!
ByronM: Well done Kyle! I really like both the figure and your paint job on him. I like the skin tone that you used a lot as the darker shade suits a big figure that is likely outside getting a lot of sun most of the time. I also love the shading on the pants and shoulder pad. He makes a worthy addition to your team. Great work.
