This Dark Sword figure is from an older boxed set, but he was still interesting to paint! As with previous Dark Sword figures with large "broccoli bases", I used the tree bark and oxide paste to fill in the surrounding areas.
It also gave me a rare chance to use this type of ground foliage, which I got from Hangar 18. The fall leaves are part of the grass tufts, which is very unique. You do have to be careful when you pull the tufts off the sheet, however, as the leaves are easily crushed in that process.
I use an exacto knife to pull them away, preserving the look!
