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 !
