I don't get to be a player as much as a DM. So, when I do get to play, I want to spend a little extra effort on my figure for my own PC. This is the situation for this Goldar. He is a half-orc fire specialized sorcerer, so he get's to use a Greataxe and plays a little like a one-trick pony with his fire spells. I envisioned him as very gray skinned. I tried to accomplish a green shadow blending up to gray highlights. I mixed MSP Stone Gray and Highland Moss, then highlighting with Weathered Stone. I think it just ended up as a pale green, but it is still interesting. There were glazes of GW green and red washes in the shadows. I think it would make a good zombie or ghoul flesh recipe. I tried to give a little life to his face with a few layers of thinned flesh glaze on the nose and cheeks, but it doesn't really show in the photos. His face was a tad miscast, with a flat nose and odd right cheek. The backstory of the character describes ritual branding and tattoos all over his body. I thought that would end up taking the figure toward a Goliath, so I avoided it. Instead, I put a little flame on his shoulder pad. I wanted to read as raised embossed metal, but I think it just looks like a decal. As I thought of ways to add detail, I decided to put runes on his skirt. My go-to for runes are the variant of FUTHARK used in the Ultima games. In this case, Vas Flam, which was the recipe for the fireball spell! I liked it enough, I put it on the axe. I can imagine a smart sorcerer would figure out a way to turn his skirt into a scroll. I'll see if my DM will let me do it ;) I had to re-do the armored legs and axe nmm a few times. The first time I tried the Twilight Blue triad, and didn't like it. Then I tried the Stone Gray triad, and worried it was too close to his skin. So I ended up mixing White and Black into Cloudy Gray. It ended up a little rushed. The scratches are all just painted on, a decision I made at the last minute (I tend to hate risking botching up a paint job that I'm happy with, and getting the metals to that point were almost enough deterrent to do it). Without further ado, here is my take on Goldar. C&C Welcomed.
