Ian submits our first fantasy entry with this poker faced fellow, a 'Fade' from the immensely popular 'Wheel of Time' series (that apparently could not be repressed even with the author's death).
Taking full advantage of allowing Fantasy to be included I have quickly painted up a figure for this weeks roleplaying session. Here Gentlemen, Ladies and Tamsin ;-) I give you a Fade from the Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of Time ' books. In fact the figure is Inquisitor Malvernis by Reaper from their Dark Heaven Legends. He wears some kind of mask but I filled in the whole face with white putty as Fades do not have eyes.
I only bought the figure last week as I have struggled to find a figure that suits the creature but was more than happy with this one, though originally was put off by the backpack. In the end it's almost perfect for the job.
It's the first time I have had so much black to do but using a base colour of Black Grey and only going lighter except a small amount of Indian Ink seems to have done the trick.
Another first was the cold effect on the staff and it's come off better than I could have hoped so overall rather happy with the first submission. Now onto something with a few more figures.
Great stuff Ian, especially the work on his cloak and the ice effect on his staff.
This Fade fellow will give Ian 5 points to add to his path to 1066. Chin up, Ian, only 1061 to go!
