Red Box Barbarians

It's been a while since the Red Box barbarians have been on the blog, so a few will make an appearance.

Just like all the other figures of this type, I had to match previously painted versions.  The one way to try to match color schemes across multiple figure lines is to have as much color harmony as possible within each individual figure.

I attempted to spread around as much of the warm, muted greens as possible... in the skin color, furs, and even the sword blade.


  1. I love the style of this character. The paintjob is kinda of a characterization of realism. Very cool tones with a bit of sketched exaggerations in some of the flesh and blade.

    1. Thanks! These guys are definitely a tricky balance. They are an interesting exercise!!
