Looks great! The NMM is really stellar. My one suggestion would be to push the contrast on the browns a little higher; the tunic especially looks a little flat. The freehand is very nice as well.

 

You're right about the armour, I'll rework the highlight. Thanks!

There's a tapestry called "The Osberg Tapestry" that depicts a man in a very prominent position (in the upper right hand corner) who is clearly wearing a horned something, but it's a very abstract piece of art so it's really impossible to tell.  This is where the idea of the viking "horned helmets" came from - it propagated particularly in the 19th Century.  There are, however, horned helmets among the Celts (again, probably ceremonial since they were pretty impractical.)  Oddly enough, other than the horns, the helmet has a very actual Viking design - the "eyebrows" and the oculars (the goggle-like appearance) are both features of real Nordic helmets.

 

As to the figure itself - it's a pretty amazing job.  I love the freehand on the cloak (Fenris and the MIdgard Serpent, perhaps?,) the shading on the figure itself. the stripes on the breeches, and the NMM on the hammer.  Very nice!

 

The armor is a bit flat, it's true.  Looking forward to see the rework!

      I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. 
       
      IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.)

      I have to confess when I pulled this guy out of the core set I thought it was a goblin. In particular, it reminded me of a certain space goblin that backwards talks in riddles he does, mmmn.   So he's green.

      Hello everyone, here's the result of my first attempt at sky and earth non metallic metal (SENMM). This Dark Heaven Legends model 02023, Tolzar Righteous Arm was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I started painting it during RVE (Reaper Virtual Expo). I painted the cape as I was following along Ian Markon's class on blending through Layering and Feathering. I then painted the freehand at the bottom of the cape during Brice Cocanour's Beginner Freehand class. I finally painted his armor, shield and hammer head using the SENMM technique. It's my first take at Sky and Earth Non Metallic Metal. I did my best to reflect the sunset on all metallic parts. Let me know what you think.

      Hello everyone, today is a Pathfinder day. I did my best to paint it as faithfully as possible respecting the original artwork colors. This is the metal version 60136, Aglanda the herald of Razmir sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It's also available in Bones plastic under sku: 89040.

      Hello everyone, I completed this Dark Dwarf today. I really enjoy painting these Duergar models. They remind me of the D&D Forge of Fury adventure module.
      This one is the Irontongue Priest sku 03883. It was sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
