I don't get to be a player as much as a DM.
So, when I do get to play, I want to spend a little extra effort on my figure for my own PC.
This is the situation for this Goldar.
He is a half-orc fire specialized sorcerer, so he get's to use a Greataxe and plays a little like a one-trick pony with his fire spells.
I envisioned him as very gray skinned.
I tried to accomplish a green shadow blending up to gray highlights. I mixed MSP Stone Gray and Highland Moss, then highlighting with Weathered Stone.
I think it just ended up as a pale green, but it is still interesting. There were glazes of GW green and red washes in the shadows. I think it would make a good zombie or ghoul flesh recipe. I tried to give a little life to his face with a few layers of thinned flesh glaze on the nose and cheeks, but it doesn't really show in the photos. His face was a tad miscast, with a flat nose and odd right cheek.
The backstory of the character describes ritual branding and tattoos all over his body. I thought that would end up taking the figure toward a Goliath, so I avoided it. Instead, I put a little flame on his shoulder pad. I wanted to read as raised embossed metal, but I think it just looks like a decal.
As I thought of ways to add detail, I decided to put runes on his skirt. My go-to for runes are the variant of FUTHARK used in the Ultima games.
In this case, Vas Flam, which was the recipe for the fireball spell! I liked it enough, I put it on the axe. I can imagine a smart sorcerer would figure out a way to turn his skirt into a scroll. I'll see if my DM will let me do it ;)
I had to re-do the armored legs and axe nmm a few times. The first time I tried the Twilight Blue triad, and didn't like it. Then I tried the Stone Gray triad, and worried it was too close to his skin. So I ended up mixing White and Black into Cloudy Gray. It ended up a little rushed. The scratches are all just painted on, a decision I made at the last minute (I tend to hate risking botching up a paint job that I'm happy with, and getting the metals to that point were almost enough deterrent to do it).
Without further ado, here is my take on Goldar.
This is Reaper's 60164: Vampire Hunter, as she is rather innocuously called. She is remarkably armed and armored. I think she is from Pathfinder, and I am sure there is some story there.
There is no WIP thread.
