The Mayan color scheme works well on this figure, great job. Regarding the shelf of shame, I have a pre-slotta GW elf I need to strip, what process did you use for yours? I've never stripped a figure before.

My go-to-method is to soak the mini in ethanol for a few days, followed by scrubbing with a toothbrush, more alcohol (on the brush, not for me...) and a lot of curses. ::D:

It works for the reaper figures made out of pewter that have just recently been painted. I have no experience with plastic minis, plastic bases or even different pewter alloys, so be very careful.

It sort of looks like he's waiting for dinner...

 

Thank you! His pose somewhat reminded me of a heron, with the intense stare and the lowered head. While I was painting him I thought about how he was hunting the fish in the water below him - or, at least, checking them out.

I learned from the maya paintings I used for inspiration that the grown up serpents eat humans. But maybe the young ones start with fish.::D:

I like it! 

Congrats on depopulating your shelf of shame a bit. 

Little critters like this are perfect opportunities to try new color schemes and basing techniques.

Thanks for the fun facts.  Amazing to think how our languages affect the ways in which we perceive the world.

      This is a Patrick Keith sculpt  from the Warlord range and I have loved it since it came out years ago.  She would be a really cool player character, I don't know why we don't see her more often.  Great dynamic movement with this one.  Anyway, I threw some color on her, so maybe she'll end up on the table one day.

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Painted that one in 2017, but never made pictures of him. But last weekend he got a gig as a model in the photography class. So finally: Picture! Yay!
       
      I used fluorescent paints for his eye sockets, so they glow under UV-light.

      Next mini off my shelf of shame: The little mummy from the warlord familiars pack III.
       
      Only when I painted the eyes of the scarabeus I realised that the sculpt is one eyed. And then I was too lazy to add the other one. Oh, well...
       
      Just a quick paint up, enjoy!
       
      C&c welcome!

      Hello everyone, I completed this model last night. 14124 Kevis the Overlords Mage was sculpted by Chaz Elliott. This guy will be an evil evoker NPC in a campaign I'll be running.
