I took a nice little break from miniature painting after The white dwarf. And I thought that it would be amazing to attack some of the members of the infamous list that I prepared some years ago with all the majority of the miniatures that have been waiting to be painted for ages.
This bust sculpted by Alfonso Giraldes for Scale 75 is a monstruosity, as big as my fist and the detail is amazing. Alfonso had been a commercial painter for ages and when he designed this piece for sure that he knew what to offer to all the painters out there: VOLUMES and TEXTURES. It is a really niece piece because you have the round and cilinder like shoulder pads, a nice and big bold head that allows testing skin tones, fur and metal alike.
In this miniature I would like to set here some of the things I'd like to explore and try to further my understanding of colour:
- White like armour
- Iron rust beneath white painted plate.
- Subtle red osl underneath figure
- Purple deep eyes
- Pale gold
- Some eye effect on the chest and shoulder armour plates
Lets see what we get at the end, but certainly what I love about this hobby is the learning process, trial and error.
