Hello all and good evening! Another figure finished last night, a Julie Guthrie figure from the early eighties, Fighter Mage with Sword, a set of three fighter mages that she sculpted in the good old days. Fun figure, pretty straightforward. His long scarf is apparently a millipede, also a nice little touch! Anyhoos, did him in kind of an oriental style, hope you all enjoy him!
So usually a figure takes me around two weeks to paint, but this being a relatively simple figure, plus the fact that I had the day after Thanksgiving off and was home alone (my beautiful little wife was working), I got to spent the last couple days finishing this figure up, just getting the actual base done about half an hour ago. I like this figure as it's one of the few fantasy figures that Iron Wind has done after its Ral Partha days. One thing that I am concerned about and maybe somebody has an idea, is that this is the second miniature I put matte finish on (using Vallejo), where after putting it on, some of it actually dried white in the grooves of the figures (between the boots for example). I found (hopefully) all those spots and added either a black or walnut brown wash to those spots, but it's kind of a pain. Does anybody know what this might be caused by? I'm using probably a ratio of three parts water to one part finish. Anyways, hopefully you enjoy the figure. I did two front shots, as the one shows the eye a bit better.
