Hey, my Warrior Nation posse finally has a boss! It's Geronimo!!
I knew from the moment I started filing mould lines that I wanted him to be a black bear.
Not only would that make it different from the standard bear scheme (and the official version), but it would offer all kinds of opportunity to do some fun color variations.
I mixed a number of subtle grays... in some places it was more of a tan, others more blue, and in other locations it was even pink.
When viewed as a whole, you get yourself a black bear.
The surrounding landscape was also a big part of this, as I painted the tree a much warmer (and lighter) shade of tan in order to make the bear look cooler and darker.
The ground was painted in cooler tones, not only to match some of the bear, but also create a contrast with the bleached skeleton (from Secret Weapon miniatures) and the bloody severed head.
I had a lot of fun painting this mini, and now he joins the Energy Beast and the Great Elk in the formation of my Warrior Nation!
