Do NOT challenge this man to an arm wrestle...


Recommended Posts

My favorite part of painting is putting the first few colors on a miniatures, which is problematic since that encourages starting lots of things that never get completed.  I gave into my baser impulses yesterday and started work on this guy, who has been waiting patiently in my drawer of shame, primed and ready to go.


Lorenzo Cortez, from Anima Tactics.  He came in a box set with another figure I wanted that I couldn't find sold separately (one of those ones that I want to wait to paint until I'm good enough to do her justice).

Check out this arm.  I don't know what the story is behind this guy, but I bet he has never lost an arm wrestling challenge since he got that thing attached.




MSP Soft Blue for his suit, VMC Ochre Brown for the collar-thingy, MSP Dark Skin, and MSP Clockwork Brass (washed with P3 Armor Wash, then highlighted with Clockwork Brass with some VMC Metallic Medium).  MSP Pure Black for the shoes and undercoat on the arm.  MSP Blue and Brown Liner as lining.


I'm going to try not to spend too much time on this guy.  These pictures do a good job showing off the shadows thrown by the lights (I haven't done any detailing except on the arm), and they look pretty straight-forward.  Not too many fiddly-bits left now that I've decided to take the easy road with his arm.

I decided that I would try to take "higher highlights, deeper shadows" to heart with Lorenzo.  Tell me how you think I did - both blue and yellow parts are nominally complete.  The picture washes the colors out a little (and add a little glare), but it's mostly accurate.
