Yesterday I found a package in my mailbox, filled with the Barbarian Dude. Last Week is stumbled upon the beautiful sculpt of a barbarian, sculpted by Emmanuel Giovanni, for his Range "Raining Frogs Garage". Sadly the miniature is limited to 350 casts, but I was quick enough to get one. The mini comes in a simple ziplock bag with a card, saying which number of the limited version you got.
The miniatur itself comes in 4 parts. The body, the crossed armes, the axe and a little hairpice.
Altogether it is a wounderful miniature. He reminds me a little bit of a certain Barbarian form a certain PC game, lets say, he looks as if he has slain the Lord of Hell many thousand times.... The real highlight of the sculpt is the face, its so atmospheric and grumpy - but see for your self
So today I found some time to clean the cast, fill some minor holes and the miscasts on the arms and the back. And I build a base using some Milliput to form some landscape. The rocks are done with a mixture of Milliput and Fimo. If your interested, i can write you a tutorial. The base will be finished after the paint job by adding some snow and a bit of old grass here and there....
Now its priming time. The axe will be painted seperatly, allowing a better handling.
Stay tuned for more.
