Started a new barbarian (of course), this is the one I got from Catacombs. He made his way towards the front of the queue pretty quickly after I received him.

His name is Torgils the Black Wolf

Here's a test-fit of nearly everything together and various angles.  

Some work done today on Severus the vile wizard!   Going with the purple and teal club here, thinking the purple and teal are looking pretty good here on this guy. Really I just need to do a few lit

Barbarians...always jumping the queues.  ^_^ I see lots of potential for good skin tones with this one.

 

They are just wild like that! Oh yes, great chance to practice some more skin tones here, I'm thinking more like a Conan bronzed skin tone for him. We'll see how I feel as I'm painting him up tho.

Are you done yet?

 

Yep. Didn't you see the show-off thread? :huh:

NO! Where, where! I can't find it! :down:

It's in...the .... FUTURE! :;):

Oh, wher'd I put that TARDIS....

 

Looking forward to this one, he's such a fantastically ragey fellow. He'll need some skulls and dripping blood from axe me thinks. he's so angry! Someone musta stole his coffee.

I was also looking for that TARDIS the other day...

 

Thanks! Yeah, he'll have skulls and blood and maybe even a broken mug of spilled coffee on the ground heh.  ::D:

So what color direction do you think you will go with this one?

 

When I first looked at him all I could think was "Glowing eyes as if he is possessed by a barbarian god"

 

He's wearing some pelts and skins, so they'll be browns and grays. Skin will be darker, I'm thinking more Conan-esque with the bronzes/reds in there, maybe some purples to offset and bring them out a bit. Not going any kind of supernatural thing here with him, haven't yet decided if he's going to be available as a table-top character or display piece or part of a vignette. We'll see how I feel as I move through the process, I like to play it by ear.

My first thought when I saw this thread title was "Catacombs barbarian. Okay. So... this is a barbarian who specializes in dungeoneering? Or is there actually a specialized tribe of barbarians who live in catacombs? And if so, what do they look like? What kind of culture arises in barbarians who never see the sunlight? I am envisioning something between Schwarzenegger's Conan and a Morlock. Plainly, I should click on this, and see what ub3r is on about."

Turned out to be the name of the manufacturer.

I do NOT have enough to occupy my mind, today.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Finally got back on to some painting.  It was a minor win, but just basing this dude feels good to be done.  One cool thing i thought was fun is that i put a footprint in the mud under his left foot.  Kind of a small, but cool detail. 
       
      Done.

      Got another one down for the weekend. 

       
       
       
      This time paying special attention to the face and eyes.  @Inarahmentioned to me to lighten things up a little.  So, I took her advice.  I think it turned out for the best!
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Taking way more time around the face this time and really putting a lot of work into leveling up the color step by step with really thin paint worked well.  VMC Burnt Red and VMC Flat Flesh was a good blend together.  I think in the face, I could have added a bit more fare skin, but hey, he's a barbarian.  He's not going for a "best skin" award, he's going for best raging out award.
      *  The bone, leather, fur was a really fun combination to work on. I kept things pretty simple and the variation between all of them were pretty complementary.  
      *  Again using the zenithal highlight really helped features stand out and give me a good starting point. 
      *  Stages: Skin, then leather elements, then accessories, then weapons.  The working method inside to out went great.  
      *  I really like the way the scabbard came out, but I kind of thing it was supposed to be straight up and down and not off to the side, but I hate when it's up and down because it'd be impossible to get the sword out of.  However, the downside is the scabbard has NO detail behind it and it's jutting out, which Ididn't think about when I glued it in place.  Wah wah.
      *  Free hand on the handle.  I added the little black/brown element on the sword handle.  I am pretty happy with that.  I think it's a nice slight add.
       
      Misses:
      *  Loin cloth was a deep red I was trying to lighten up.  I used a light grey, didn't work.  Then I tried white - pink?  Do you think a barbarian is going to wear pink?  "I reckon' you get your broccoli kicked for wearing something like that."  In thinking about it I could have pushed it to orange for the highlight.  Doh!
      *  Eyes - I did them better this time, to @Inarah's point, but I didn't have enough room to get much else in there.  I was also at a points where I knew if I tried to fix it, it was only going to get worse, so I called it where it was.  Meh.
      *  Sword - just a basic steel.  I tried to use a black wash on the bottom side of the blade to give it shading, but you really can't see it on the photo.  It's nothing special, and again, I wish it was more...anything.  It's pretty basic.
       
      I'm reallllly looking forward to putting a base on this one. Needs to be something epic, so this will be a special one.  I'm very, very happy with how this turned out and feel it's a good spot to stop for the weekend.  Yay!
       
      As always - open to feedback and would love your thoughts.
