This guy has been kicking around for quite a long time. I painted him for the 2021 Eavier Metal 20 Year Challenge after a friend with a very extensive collection of older miniatures very kindly offered to put him under the brush for the competition.

I wanted the way I painted him to reflect the battered nature of his equipment. I feel like notched and battered armour and weapons would almost certainly have accumulated quite a bit of corrosion. Since he also seems as though he is a bit of a dandy (though he looks like he's seen some things since his days of swanning about), he needed some fancy patterns on hsi garb.

I painted the cobbles on the base freehand over a texture paint and finished it off with some moss pads to reflect the horrible, dank environment he has probably found himself in. (Also explains all that rust, right?)
