Okay, I picked up this particular cloud giant at 40% off in the clearance section at the local FLGS. First section I hit when I get there every few-to-six months. It's been sitting here next to my chair in the living room under consideration for addition to the Joten Horde for a bit. One of the first things I was concerned with was the color under the translucent "air" effects. When I paint the skin the spot under the "air" will look different than the skin tones. So after some internal debate about how to proceed with everything I figure the clear effects needed to be dismantled and the cloak needs to come off so I can get at his right arm. This is where I learned that WizKids/Gale Force decided to take a shortcut on getting the effects of the air. ... *facepalm* The entire miniature is made of translucent material and they just "primed" the non-air parts. There's one exception to this; the ruff around the neck. That means the head, the hand, and the legs where the other translucent effects exist are not multiple pieces as I had originally imagined, but are, in fact, one piece each. Arg... I'll be disassembling the ruff as well as the "pauldron" so I can at least paint under that piece of "air." Anyway, stay tuned and enjoy. We'll see what I can wrestle out of this. Ps: The jewelry on the face reminds me of the emperor from the movie "300."
