The cloak is beautiful.

 

His general color scheme might be just a little flat. The shadows and contrasts are excellent, but the basic colors of his tunic, the cloak interior, his coloration and the weaponry all fall within a fairly narrow range of hue, value, and chroma.

 

But really he is silvery and subtle and beautifully painted.

 

(Just as a humorous observation, this figure is blatantly a riff on the classic old Marvel Comics Thor from the 1960s and 70s. You can see the echo of Jack Kirby's costume design in his outfit, and his name appears to be a portmanteau of forensic medicine historian Jürgen Thorwald and Norwegian ethnographer Thor Heyerdahl.)

That fur is marvelous! From the front,the colors aren't as striking as those you used on your other minis.

 

I'll gladly take him off your hands though, all your minis are amazing. Still waiting for you to make a "how to paint" YouTube. Whatever you're doing, I wanna do that.

You complaign too much! Lol ::): the figure is perfect.

 

If anything could be improved, it would be the base. The snow is too white and uniform for the awesomely painted mini.ad some variaton in the snow (both level and color) maybe add a tuft of weeds/grass sticking through and you may be hapier about it

      This was a fun and easy paint job. He comes with a variety of arms and weapon options so you can customize the figure. (and the extra arms are nice for conversions)

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      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.

      This is a relatively recent paint job and I struggled with colors for a while before taking inspiration from another model and strengthening the contrast in places.  I like the model but she feels very stiff and doll-like.
       

       
      Or maybe she doesn't like the light in her eyes:
       

       
      Fiddled around with some freehand on the back:

      This is Sonya, the Maine Coon fighter from the Cats & Catacombs boxed set.  I received and started painting several of the figures almost exactly one year ago, and then got into a severe funk because of COVID shutdowns.  Recently I was able to pick this up and get back into it. 
       

       
      Hoping to get to a few of the others this spring.  And the base lettering was done with a waterslide transfer.
