    David,
    Well done and great colours that help it look really cold.
    Thanks for all the tips.

    David, that is some great figure and base work! If I may ask a question: does this kit come with the depicted axe and spear for the back of the figure or did you make that? I have seen a couple examples depicted both with and with out the weapons on the back and was just curious as I was thinking of purchaseing the kit and thought it looked best, being my first fantasy kit, with a myriad of weapons. Once again, great job.

    Like Brian I have seen this figure in the flesh and I'm afraid the photos dont really do its justice.
    I think its wonderful, one of his best but dont tell him.
    Great stuff Davie.

    Wonderful work David. I`m always in awe of the intensity of color you achieve with a very muted pallet.
    The Axe works especially well, almost looks like NMM with acrylics ?

    If I may, I think while your wanting a "cold" piece, that white skull tends, IMHO, to merge a bit too much with the snow/ice and a brownish age stain might help that ?

    Regards
