That repose looks fantastic and quite dangerous, excellent work!

Thank you! Today I am working on Urien and Telesto. I keep splashing colours and white on the sea horse, and worrying about when it will be time to shade him with a shadow wash, in case it ruins all the brightness and messes everything up. Gulp.

Alright, I think this is probably the best I can do. Taste the rainbow.

Wendigo and Zephyri. Friends? Not sure.

And Urien, painted. This is one model where I would understand if people can't tell what the original model is. Both a headswap and a repose doesn't leave a lot of recognisability intact.

Free Sunday, lots and lots of painting today.

Dimitrios... hmm. Something's not right. I feel like the red clashes. Gonna change it for green.

Also, super flimsy spear shaft. I probably should have replaced it with brass rod, but I guess I will see how long it stays.

I like Dimitrios a TON more without the helmet. The unicorn + fish fin just doesn't do it for me... I wonder how a Ludus Magnus style masked helmet would look on him?

Speaking of helmets, where is Urien's from? I can't place it. And I said it before, but the repose you did has made him look 100% better. Nicely done.

Finally, I dig your version of Telesto too. The stock paint scheme looks good, and I like what you did with washes/glazes around his hands/feet/muzzle.

(Also nice to see you posting your work regularly again!)

Thank you so much. :) Since I was so productive yesterday, I am running out of models to paint - all I have left now is mounted Dimitri.

Interesting question, because I actually gave him one such helmet way back when I got him, albeit keeping the unicorn fish fin.

I decided to abandon it, but I think a large part of that is that the helmet with the wide shadow looks a bit weird. If I had used a normal gladiator helmet, I'm sure it would have looked a lot better. Which I still may do, actually.

The wide shadow and Urien's helmet come from the same sprue, and it's from maxmini.eu.

Hmm. Hmmmm.

Right now, my feeling is to give foot Dimi the same type of mask I gave Argos, and then take the bare head and put that on mounted Dimi.

I can't bring myself to get rid of the unicorn fin though... I feel like it is his trademark.

Honestly from that angle, I think it works all right on the closed helmet - much better than on the open one.
