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.

      The Left Hand of Darkness here is from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion. I painted this one at the same time as the Bones 4 female devil, as they make a fine pair.  Speaking of fine pairs, you will need to click the links to see, as the titilation offered by a shapely two inch piece of plastic might be harmful to minors.

      A slight Angela from Spawn vibe going here. Not sure what about this mini that makes me think of that character.

      Presenting Amiri, she's an Iconic Barbarian from Reapers Pathfinder line.
       
      Had this one a little while, but all the fiddly bits kept putting me off (and I normally like fiddly minis), she turned out to be super fun to paint though.
       
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

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