    This is a cool guy from Andrea warlord saga series. I have painted him as a leprechaun preparing to defend his gold. The base represents his rainbow factory with the refractors sitting behind him. The front shows all the non rainbow stuff being pumped out so the colors will be pure.

    Thanks fellas. Mr. Barton; the non rainbow stuff started with plastic wrap inserted in the pipe and molded how I wanted it, I then mixed acrylic gel medium with very fine dirt to create a mud. I then just caked it on the plastic wrap until it looked like I wanted it. I forgot to mention that the base was made by Steve at creative foundations.

    Neat! The armor looks awesome. And considering the scale... well, I wish my 54mm's looked that good.

    Excellent! I've always thought of Lucky Charms whenever I hear about Leprechauns, but now I'm going to remember this dude.:ROFLMAO:

    I always like you concepts, but this has got to be my favorite so far! Great paintwork as always.

    Mike you are taking great leaps in painting my friend. I love what you have done to this one. Fleshtones are great and the metalwork is really something. Congratulatios.

    Well, obviously Mike you have a very creative side, that is well developed
    and a lot of imagination. This is very clever as so many of the Planeteers
    have stated. It has to be so much fun to work in this fantasy genré where
    there are no hard and fast rules re what the colours must be.

    You also have a lot of colour harmony in the figure and the back of the base
    where the blue tinting on the rock is located. I hope you'll allow a suggestion
    to carry the colour harmony just a slight step further. I'd like to see some of
    those muted tones you've painted on the figure, also used in the
    gray rocks in the foreground.

    And I would suggest one or two more different muted tones in the
    sludge liquid that is coming out of the pipe. A very minor point, here you
    understand. As the presentation stands now, it is just so clever, very well
    executed, and shows a lot of imagination and intelligence. I believe some
    call this "thinking outside the box". . . . Well done, mate, Jayhawker

    Great work! I think that if General Mills adapted your rendition of a Leprechaun, all of the so-called cool kids would want Lucky Charms too :D The armor and skin tones are top notch

    Very nice mate. I was wondering what type of mushrooms you had when you thought of the concept?:sick:
