    Hey guys,

    Whilst I was waiting for my Figone bust to arrive I picked this up from a small company called Games Workshop (you may have heard of them) ;)

    Anyhoo, here is my first attempt at a figure after a 20 year break. It looked ok till I took some close up pics. I am happy with him anyway, he turned out a lot better than I expected. He looks a lot better away from the flash and when viewed from a distance ;)

    Painted almost entirely in Vallejo acrylics, with a few dabs of humbrol gloss clear coat here and there, mainly on the gems and staff.

    Apologies for the quality of pics, I am not now, and never will be, a photographer.

    Comments very welcome, I am just starting out again and any hints/tips will be greatly appreciated.

    Billy

    Hey mate. Good work. Makes me think I must dig my one out and slap some paint on it. After such a long break you have done well. I like the highlighting on his coat? cloak?

    Hello Bill:

    Say, you did quite well on this figure, especially since
    it has been quite some time. I hope getting back into
    figures will be a lot of fun for you. That last photo with
    the added coin for scale is a good idea. I'm not familiar
    with either of the company names you mentioned so I'm
    guessing this is a 28mm figure? I feel the scale should
    always be mentioned when posting photos. It helps
    old dudes like me better understand just what I am
    looking at.

    I decided to strip this figure and repaint him to see how my painting had improved since 2013. I just finished him tonight:

    Hi Billy,

    The repaint is great. Its nice to compare against the old version as you can see how well your painting has evolved.

    Cheers

    Phew, thats a difference between old and new!
    You have done a great job on the repainted figure. I like it a lot and take it as a reference for coming projects.

    PS: I for myself couldn't repaint any of my old figures cause they are all personal history;)
