Over the weekend I finished up Valeros, Iconic Fighter; the last of the Iconics and Officially Licensed Pathfinder Miniatures set I had left to complete. This set now joins the list of completed sets over on the right.
This was another figure from this set that I wasn't particularly fond of. Yes, it has a great dynamic sculpt, but I just found it to be overly busy feeling; with stuff pointing in several different directions, and no real "front"to the figure. So, I thought I would use this figure to do an experiment. I had been thinking a while about trying: painting a figure with mainly inks and washes, and I thought this would be a good opportunity to try it.
So, I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then I gave it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsed and dried it. Next, I glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". When the varnish was dry, I flocked the base, and that evening I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
So, that wraps up the Iconics and Officially Licensed Pathfinder Miniatures set. My plan is to do another four Orcpocalypse figures for next week, and then start in on the Pirates set.
