King in the North done

Well that went quicker than expected. The armour plates were fun to paint so perhaps I pushed a bit harder on these than what I have done previously. All in all I think it turned out nicely. There is for sure places where I am not happy with my sculpting, and places where I could have though a head more. But from afar it looks good. I think the amount of added details tend to blur things so that no individual thing sticks out as being off.

I am also very happy with the stance... only thing I would have done differently is to use a fully custom base instead off adding to the "normal" plastic ones. As it is it looks a bit wonky with the front foot sticking out over the base. Originally I also have a piece sticking out behind the back foot. This was removed as it looked very out of place. Well it is what it is now. On to the next one... or something.

I still have some War glaives on the desk that needs to be finished, perhaps that is up next...  and I definitely need to finish the Deathguard marines that has been on my desk, half painted, for close to half a year? Then I probably should start on Surtur... he has also been sitting on the desk for quite some time (waiting for me to finish Fenrir)...  mostly the head but still...  and I till have a Acastus Porphyron and a Cerastus Atrapos to do...

King in the North WIP 5

This week I have been painting away on the armour plates of the King. I really had forgotten how much stuff I had sculpted on to these...  so it has taken a bit longer than I thought to get it all done. But in the end it is mostly just filling in the fields using my, by now, routine scheme for the ghosts. I think the GS blends in well on the model. Some of the things could have been neater sculpts, but this has been a project over such a long time that it is not all consistent. Now it is only the greaves left and the groin banner (which I have no clue how to attach)... and off course the base I need to finish . But all in all I see that I can soon have this model done.
