I finished this guy tonight and had to post a picture. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and it was really not hard to achieve.
As most of the figure is a flesh area, it paints up really fast. I tried a NMM version of the sword, but it looked terrible. I think I did it properly, but it's not a technique that really shines in 15mm. So good old Mithril Silver with a Badab black wash replaced my fancy attempt.
I enjoyed painting this so much that I immediately started one of the females in the set, and a Troll.
Scott Pyle over at Four Color Figures is painting these right now too, and very nicely too. He has suggested he might try his hand at a "solo system"for small encounters based on his (excellent) Goalsystem rules. Needless to say, this is very exciting to hear!
I've got the Barbarian bug now.. Expect a fair bit of this stuff coming up.
