I'm finally happy enough with this one to call it finished.
This was my first real attempt at blending, and while there is a bit of stepping in some places I think the piece is still better for the attempt.
I do wish the surface texture was a bit smoother in some places. Perhaps I need to clean my minis better before starting.
All comments and criticism are very welcome.
I've recently started up a 4e campaign with some friends, and they've all nominated me as the guy in charge of miniatures. I'm happy with that, as I appear to be the only one who actually enjoys the hobby. So we all ordered suitable minis from Reaper, and I've been hard at work for a couple weeks in my spare time. I've got one left to do, and it's for a friend who's playing a tiefling rogue, loosely based on the "Bast" character from Rothfuss' "In the Name of the Wind." He's chosen the Eccardian Drovenge mini, which has an incredible amount of very fine detail on his armor. The example painted version in the listing for the mini is beautiful, but probably not going to work as a template, as the colours are much too bright for the "Dark and understated" vision that my friend has for his character.
So my question is, given this restriction, what sort of palette would you choose for this character?
He's asked for brick-red skin, and darker red horns, which I've done, but beyond that, I'm really not sure. His character recently stole a bloody cloak from a slain foe as a trophy, so that will likely be the flowing bit hanging from his belt in the back.
Here's the mini, for reference: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/eccardian%20drovenge/latest/60071
