Repaint of an old figure

Recommended Posts

So I'm thinking I'm going to be repainting this old figure that I have another copy and here is my question. Should I repaint with the original paint scheme or should I do something totally different? No wrong or right answer, just looking for opinions.

I never repaint.

 

That way you can see your progress.

 

Unless it is a mini that is very rare and you really want it to have a make-over

I'm not going to give him a PineSol bath. I have another copy and I've always liked this miniature. I've got four figures I want to do  a new version of and I'm not too worried about the other three but that one with orange hair and an orange turban, not so sure I'm fond of it anymore but that's how I did him back in 1982 or so.

That's what I'm considering. I've got a group of four figures I want to do that I've got new copies of. I like two other color schemes and one I can't stand but I'm on the fence with this one.
