Asgard Barbarian - Model exchange program


Some time ago, I managed to do a model exchange program. My mission was to take care of Hess poisonbreath in exchange for this classic Barbarian from Jes Goodwin when he worked for Asgard.
So a little time ago, I got this guy in the post. 

I do have a few models painted by others now and I have to say I'm quite fond of them. Seeing how others do things differently from my way is very refreshing and inspiring I find. I love the deep tones used for the skin, from a deep pink to a very bright bone colour. The base is also very nice and evocative, there's something from the old Blanche illustrations there which I fancy a lot.


The greenish cloak is also very far from anything I' d think of and is therefore very cool to see.
The model also cruely reminded me I had started a Frostgrave band with those barbarians and that I have yet to finish the band.


It's quite funny to see how my skintones seem like yellows when placed next to a model with more pinkish hues.

After a few excellent days in Budapest last week, I'll try to get back behind the brushes and get a few projects done if time and energy allow it.
In the meantime, have fun !

    2. Sadly, in some ways Blogger is a totally rubbish platform. In others, not. Don't even get me started on their app. Good lord.

      Anyway, this guy's nice. Not flashy, but nice. He looks like a person. He does make your guys look a bit jaundiced, but maybe they just ate some spoiled bear meat or something.

  2. Really like that green cloak. It is an unusual choice, but a great one.

    I've never done a painting exchange. Hrm...

    1. I think the colours really state "late 80's" more than anything I'm able of, I really like that.
      I haven't done many exchanges but the few I have are pieces I'm really fond of. ^^

    1. I find the use of washes really gives a great depth to the base, definitely something I'll try to use in the future.
