Nicely done! I love this mini, and you've really done great work with him. I love the weathering on him, and the colors in his armor look fantastic!

A fabulous paint job! The cape is excellent, but the freehand on the shield is quite amazing. I haven’t tried freehand yet, but if I do 10% as good as you, I will be happy.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it. It's the first time I try to paint an armor this way and I'm pleased about the result. It isn't too shiny, perfect for a veteran warrior.

As for the shield, I was going to paint two Fleur de Lys, and then decided to paint a boar head after looking at some inspiring heraldry symbols.

As I said on Facebook, I think you have done a great job and the added details like the claw marks on the shield are wonderful!

You captured the feel of a grizzled old Veteran from his unshaven face to his battered shield & his well worn armor. Your color choices make the miniature. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Exceptionally good work on the armor and the clothes. I really love the look of the metal and how you achieved the clean lines of the bag and the clothes.

 

I am not entirely sold on the cloak, but I haven't figured out what bothers me, yet - and I absolutely can't get over his face. It immediately draws my attention and I think: Hm - this looks ... wrong somehow.

It looks a bit like a color variation of his tunic. Or an unshaven orc having a yellow fever rush. I simply don't like it. The execution however is really good.

      Though technically not part of the town themed figures, I tapped him for the captain of the guard. I did him relatively quickly.

      I'm trying to complete all the town related figures from the Bones 4 core set with the same colour palette. I took my inspiration from the Whiterun guards in Skyrim. This pair of guards is also available in metal.

      Here is my most recent Townsfolk figure from the Bones 4 core set. He is also available in metal (SKU 03859). Two things I tried differently on this one were 1. no under-painting and 2. letting go. I usually apply an coat of German Camouflage Black-Brown over the whole figure to start when working with Bones. I know it has been shown many times that Bones are designed to go from blister to paint but I wanted to check it out for myself. I just went straight to the base colours, shading and highlighting with no issues.
       
      The second was more difficult. This was me telling myself to trust myself and the figure and not overwork the paint. I had to remind myself to pull back when I started thinking, "maybe I should add another blend or work that edge some more..." At first it was a little uncomfortable but after awhile everything sort of fell into place and I am happy with the results.

      Struggled to find this guy that interesting to paint, and as a result he ended up a bit lacklustre.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      This figure is available in metal sold as a single figure - Townsfolk: Sage. While I used the same base colours as my other townsfolk, I wanted to give the impression of somewhat fancier clothes. After shading and highlighting, I brightened the cloak and frock with GW inks (Biel-Tan Greeen and Carroburg Crimson respectively).
