It's a trap! - Sumothay

    I've always heard that this great figure of Raul G. Latorre was one of the most difficult pictorical challenges any hobbilist could try. I nevere tried before.

    I love the mini, looks beautiful, but there is not so much things where the painter can show their skills, but painting well, with so many elements and without anything out place or looking strange it's a goal, therefore I decided to seek distinction with the ground, something more elaborated than usual in the Sumos I've seen out there.
    So this is how born the scene "It's a Trap!" (Also affectionately called "apache attack to vegetable stand") where you can interpret that Sumothay is a mercenary charged with protecting a merchant convoy of food and water or a pirate raiding an alcohol convoy.
    At the end I must say that the fame of complex Sumothay has is justified. Actually most of the work was rewarding and simple, but when you approach the end and see how the days go by and keep painting little details and little details, and they never end : P
    I hope you like it and effort worth it

    I know some people complain that all anyone ever gets on this thread is positive comments like 'stunning' 'fantastic' outstanding' 'exceptional' 'superb' etc, well that's what this is.
    Everything is 'stunning' 'fantastic' outstanding' 'exceptional' 'superb' etc.
    In fact you could take the figure and put it on another base and you'd have 2 'stunning' 'fantastic' outstanding' 'exceptional' 'superb' etc, models.
    This is painting of the highest order, a pleasure to look at.
    Cheers
