I have finally got around to finishing the mini for the character Valerius in my =][=MVNDA campaign. Click here to see his background entry.
Although he turned out somewhat different from how I expected, I am still pretty pleased with him. The doner models are a Mordheim gang member and an Empire pistolier. It's a bit hard to get a good photo of him as he is so dynamic that a single angle doesn't really do him justice.
I painted him using the techniques Steve Buddle has been at the vanguard of. Viz - the awesome Citadel washes of fairly flat base colours with selective highlights. I was very pleased with how well his padded tunic came out - the Gryphonne Sepia provided some wonderful shading. The hue of his flowing jacket was based on the colour scheme employed by the great Migsula on his XX LEGION marines. I loved the way the dirty turquoise transitions to a lurid yellow.
Valerius' proxy is a rank pip from a military uniform.
Portrait to coming soon.
