It really looks like he means business! Very nice result.

I'm thinking of doing a figure for Not my comfort zone GB if that one makes it. I really should try a figure once.

Thank you. Yes, you really should try a figure. Lots of using brushes for slopping paint about, no decals and no masking means it like a modelling holiday :)

gee he looks awesome...and very frightening!!

 

you've done an amazing job on him, especially the paint work. I'm amazed you actually managed to get multiple coat of tamiya acrylic paint to go on top of each other!!! I try and they all seem to either want to come off/mix all together or just go super streaky!

 

Everything just looks right paint job/colours, well done. :thumbsup:

Thank you. I had help choosing colours from a friend who does re-enactment and who kept me right as I was working on him. I used photos of her group for reference and all the bits of historical info I dropped in are from her too - my knowledge of Vikings was very limited before I started this project.

 

There are three secrets to layering Tamiya paints:

1. Sheer bloody minded perseverance

2. Leaving enough time for the paint that's already on to fully cure before the next coat

3. Don't take pictures of the bits that go horribly wrong 😂

Calling him done. Some quick and dirtty pictures for now. Once he's set enough that I can move him I'll dust down the base and take some gallery shots that don't have my desk clutter as a background.

That was a fun build, might be tempted to another one. Off to explore the rest of the GB in the meantime though :)

wow he's awesome looking.... and a bit scary, well done!!!!:thumbsup:

 

You've done a great job on him, I'm so glad you decided to join the build with a figure, it's great to see them in GB as they're not often seen here.

 

I hope you enjoyed the build, it was a real pleasure to have you along and to follow this build.

Cheers Rich, I had a blast taking part. Kind of got the taste for big figures now, got three very different WW2 ones in the post. None of them qualify for this GB, but they'll be around somewhere soon :)

Very nice Andy.  To be honest, I also liked him with the open skull.  Perhaps you could have filled it with ale or mead?  

Would have saved time trying to find the skull of an enemy 😄
