The Pondering Paladin

Dark Sword figures have been making ideal subject matter for the tutorial videos now for months, and it is pretty obvious why!

There's always plenty of fine detail, especially on the faces.  They also tend to tell a strong story, which makes basing them even more fun!

In this case, I was able to cut the figure away from the original "broccoli base" with a razor saw, and get him on a nice ruins style base!

Other more minor things which make a difference are areas such as the chain mail.  Chain mail tends to be sculpted too roughly, or nasty mould lines running through it.  Certainly not the case here!  It was quite easy to get some nice shading and color tones onto the chain mail, which was a nice treat.

You can find them all at the Dark Sword home page:
