I love not just the freehand, but the amazing wear and weathering on the shield - it has definitely seen many battles

 

gorgeous paint job - inspirational

Overall a great job, looks like a veteran indeed!

The shield is outstanding!

Thanks all!  The shield was definitely the most challenging, and I got the scale of the griffon off a bit so his wings aren't fully visible (though I think it still works as a stylistic choice).  This Bones model has some bending on the top of the shield that heat couldn't fix, so it made a great focus for some battle damage.

Very nice free hand on the shield. And good clean, clear paint job on the rest. Nice handling of the red.

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.
