Painting up a rat dude for a Pathfinder game I'm in. I wanted to go with an albino white rat look. I had trouble getting the skin to come out right at first. I'd gone with a medium caucasian skintone (Vallejo Medium Flesh), washed with GW Carroburg Crimson, and then highlighted with Vallejo Highlight Skin, a very pale skintone. I wanted to go with a high contrast. It ended up not working quite as well as I had hoped. Adding in some Reaper Old West Rose where the Medium Flesh showed helped a lot. In the future, I think I'll either add a midtone in between the two skin colors, or else start with a pink like the Old West Rose. The end result isn't too bad, but I think I can get there faster, and with a less mesy looking result. I used my Scale 75 steel alchemy set, using their guide for a more blue steel for the sword and chainmail. I think I'll want to add in a bit more of a neutral steel color for the midtones. Right now, it's coming across too blue and green. After that, I need to finish up the fur cloak, do some finishing on the leather belt, and add some basing.
"Many adventurers speak bravely about facing the enlarged rats of Haglynch Swamp. Many adventurers die swiftly in the final realization that they aren't up against rats." This paint job was inspired by the albino Barghest miniature I got playing in a D&D Miniatures release event many years ago. Barghests have always been a favorite monster of mine, so I borrowed some inspiration from that figure. I Googled some images of moors and decided to try and make a base to correspond. I'm still not clear on the differences between swamps, bogs and moors but I think he looks appropriate. Oh and a special thanks to Metalchaos for doing his dragonlion with the water so that I'd get off my butt and finally give the Realistic Water a try. C&C always welcome from all levels.
