This is from Rackham/Confrontation an Ophidian Warrior.
He is a Heavy Snake Infantryman for my Lost World.
He originally came with a sword to put on his side, but I left it off.
Liked him better this way.
He is on a resin base from Micro Art Studio enhanded with Vallejo Still Water.
WIP is here:
On to the pics, some against my Jungle Backdrop Board.

9th gate Miniatures presents Collection of Mysterious Miniature Models of Pirates Busts Kickstarter:
Lots of busts based on a certain Disney Pirate movie...
I began this bust last week. I preshaded as a guide then proceeded to cover it all up. My lighting scheme is supposed to be "bright from above and slightly into face".
I am kinda at the point where I can keep tweaking the face, but I think I should let it rest and work on the neck and chest instead for a while. Eyebrows and deer-nose and lips still need shading and work though. Most work has been on the skin.
In roughly sequential order....
I think I may have overdone the shadows but I will decide if I should go back to fix that up later.
I've been wanting to paint a bust since I got back from ReaperCon. I missed my chance to pick up Julie Guthrie's beautiful sculpt from the convention, so I did a bit of research. I had already picked up a larger scale mini from FeR Miniatures at Scale 75's table this year, so I started there. In addition to some more intricately detailed stuff, FeR also had a few busts that seemed a bit more on the simple side, so I grabbed them. They're both in the "Portraits From the Middle Ages" line. I started with this one, the Saxon Huscarl, Hastings, 1066.
I started off by doing the face, using Reaper's HD flesh quadrilogy(?) I mixed them to create midtones, but it still came out less smooth than I had hoped. I think it looks ok for a first go, but I definitely have so much room for improvement. I'm definitely going to do a bit of touching up on the face.
I did the eyes next, and I really like the way that they turned out! They give him such a ruthless look! After this, I base coated the chainmail in dark grey mixed with some black, and then I left it there for the night. I'm going to try and do the metals as non-metallic, so we'll see how that goes!
