KyleC - 65mm Samurai (12 Points)
So here is a new release from Mr Lee's Minis, but also my latest paint job. The Big Haired Samurai.. smoking a reefer, and ready for a fight if one happens to come near him.
The socket will get painted black along with the other showcase pieces coming up for shows soon, but in the meantime he is sitting on a nice and easy base to show off the painting of the figure more so than the basing works.
Really had fun painting this piece up which was Sculpted by Oleksandr Bilibov from Ukraine.
I look forward to painting up another version of this in the near future here. Might do a bit more atmospheric work on him in that case and a slight conversion on it as well.. but it should be fun all the same.
Now to see what else might get painted in the next few days :D
ByronM - Wow, excellent work Kyle! Now I want one!!!! I love afro samurai, the show had such character, and this figure and your painting captures it so excellently! Damn, now I have to track this down. Truly great work on painting this guy, the shading on the jeans and shirt especially look great, as does the flesh tone.
Since he is bigger than a 54mm I am going to give a few more points than that, so 12 points for this guy.
