This very happy guy is a score marker for the Samurai Orc Blood Bowl team. It seemed to be very appropriate, on many levels!
It was a resin figurine that someone had given me. His hand was broken, but I was able to fix that. I decided to paint him like a stone statue (the original paint was a flat gold).
As usual, I tried to vary the colors as much as possible, in particular over the broad open surfaces. The cracks were put in at the very end, because I thought it needed a few little touches to break up these areas.
As you can see, I tried to incorporate as many greens as possible to give it more of an aged look, as well as some staining. The color choice was made when I primed the figure, mixing a few different colored primers together. I loved the color which emerged so much, I decided to continue on in the direction that it set.
