I set myself the challenge of painting this fellow in a weekend, and pretty much succeeded.
The challenge to myself was part of my drive to achieve a better balance of effort-to-reward, hopefully resulting in painting more, faster. Citadel's new Contrast Paints are a godsend for this, allowing me to block in forms very quickly and needing only minimal touch-up and highlighting when done.
This fellow is actually a bit more impressive in the flesh, when you are instantly stuck by his huge mane of green hair, which vibrates against the red of his body. I also like his Kubuki-like face. Plus his gory hand with its string of blood achieved by gluing a bit of clear nylon to his finger before applying the gore.
Painting more, faster will let me finish projects quicker and so avoid the doldrums of wallowing in a box of half-painted minis. I literally have such a box, which I dub the Box of Shame. It's currently getting emptied as a satisfying rate.
