Hi folks, After a bit more messing around this morning I finally got this chap finished and managed to take some pictures before the light fell. He's a treeman from the recently-released Games Workshop plastic kit and is about 14cm tall. I'm still quite surprised that it's possible to make something like this in plastic, but they are generally very good at organic stuff. I converted the model a little using parts from all three versions. I rebuilt a right hand into a left so I didn't have to use the enormous left hand supplied, and used the long plaited beard as a pigtail. I also removed the bottom of his jaw so that the face looks more like a nut and less like a mask from Princess Mononoke. I tidied up the changes with epoxy putty and CA. He's all brush painted with Citadel paints except for varnish, the tendrils (where I airbrushed the blends) and an initial application of "Flesh Wash" to the recesses, also using the AB for ease of access. After the basic paint job was done and sealed I weathered him with enamels and a small amount of pigment - mainly AK and MIG stuff. The flat coat is Alclad Klear Flat, and the gold paint is Vallejo Liquid Gold which I haven't used before, and I think is excellent! I added a layer of moss mixed from ground foam, green paint and leftover "scenic cement" (dilute PVA). A bit scary initially but when toned down with enamels and drybrushed with some ludicrously bright green I think it's pretty effective. I was amused to discover just how many bottles and jars went into this! There's a WIP thread here - thanks to everyone who commented while it was going on, and thanks for having a look here too! I really enjoyed this one, sometimes a bit of messy painting is very good for the soul Cheers, Will
