I got the critters as an addon to the DSM kickstarter recently. The first thing I am painting is this guy, a musk ox warrior. He's big, so priming took a while. And I am using a crummy brush for base coating all this fur because it is a brush mangler until I get to the nitpicky stuff. 


I'm trying to make the small bit of chainmail 1) NMM to see if I can do it and 2) slightly tarnished. I don't think thia guy is good at cleaning. 


Armor color themes I am thinking dark red primarily, with black, blue, and green accents. I was looking up eskimo art for the sake of doing his belt-thing justice, and those seem like reasonable colors to go with. 


Thanks to the CMPA for the poster tack and the jar idea - had to find a big jar for him!

He's looking more shaggyrific. I did multiple dark colors on the eyes, but I don't know that they really show up. Then again, looking up musk ox, their eyes are pretty darn black anyway.

Got the knife done.


The pommel was probably intended to be bone and I went for a darker metal. Maybe it is bone coated in dark iron. 


The coloring was fun. 


Put a chevron on the front. Colored the knobs. 


I think the extra color on these helps balance the fish out. 


Thinking that the fuzzy trim should be a medium tone slightly reddish brown.

I am a bit unsure about the colors I have for the boots and the trim now. I don't know if I can balance them well with the club over his head. The brown I chose is visually a similar tone as the red, and it is a lot in one spot. Maybe I highlight it? 


Will get pictures soon (phone vs computer typing).
