Avatar WIP 1

Getting a start on the RPG March challenge project. The idea is to take a mini and paint it up like a character from a video game RPG. I decided on one of my very favorite CRPGs of all time, Ultima. The model will be painted as the Avatar, the player’s character.

I started with Reaper 03556: Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin. First thing that had to go was the shield emblem, as that needs to be a serpent.

Then priming and lining.

And finally the base coating.

Bronze skin, blond hair, white tabard, lots of gold. My first stab at white, I’m going for a cool white and that blue will really be more for the undersides and very deepest folds, not much should show by the end. There’s going to be prominent freehand on this, I’m a bit daunted but it should be educational.
