Here's another member of the Relic Hunters crew. Like the previous one, he is also full of character and the quality of the model is excellent. While I was working on him I kept thinking that he reminds me of some character. It was only at the finishing stage that I realized it was Bill the Butcher from "Gangs of New York".
It was too late so I didn't change the color scheme. If I had good sculpting skills, I'd add a few conversions to the miniature and paint it over again to make him look like Bill.
This miniature gave me a chance to work with a new technical paint from GW - Blood for the Blood God. It is... the best "bloody" paint I've ever worked with. It's thick but it's also slightly transparent so that it leaves a very realistic, gory effect when applied.
I also used a bit of bright red and dark brown inks from P3 to add a bit depth to the blood effects. I'm pretty happy with his pants. I know they don't have pockets on the back but I decided to make them look like denim as I want each of the Wastrels to look completely different. This one is a big guy so I thought brighter colors would emphasize that effect nicely.
