So continuing my barbarian, slightly-avoiding copyright infringement miniatures, here's a random Barbarian Warlord with Great Sword, or is it just a great sword? Anyhoos, he may or may not resemble some great square jawed barbarian, only you and Crom know for sure: He's got a crazy, exaggerated helmet, but I'm guessing it's ceremonial? Or who knows, maybe he uses it when he's samba dancing.....
I'd been working on this guy on and off for a month or two to use in Frostgrave, but finished him in a final push a couple of weeks ago. Awesome sculpt, full of character. Had a real go at putting lessons from Clever Crow's shaded metallics class at ReaperCon into practice with his sword, and I'm confident in saying it's the best damn sword that I've ever painted. Perhaps I may finally answer the Riddle of Steel... I'm also quite happy with how is hair turned out, though I think it may still be reading as grey rather than black, particularly from the front. There are a few spots on the shading and highlighting of his musculature that I could touch up looking back at the photos, but overall I'm pleased. Time to go break some skulls in the snow!
