I’ve always really liked Bestmen in general and knew I had to get one of these as soon as I saw it! I’ve been painting a couple busts lately, more than I have in the past and I’m really enjoying the level of detail it allows you to paint the model in.

I figure that a ram would probably bash into his opponents during a fight using his head as a weapon alongside whatever blunt axe or mace or whatever he could get his hands on. (or maybe even block attacks with his horns!?) Either way I added more scratches and minor wounds to his face for that reason, mostly to the left side of his face where there’s already a sculpted wound over his mouth. I also decided to make him blind in one eye, the left side of his face looks more slack than the right and I pictured him being wounded by some magical weapon or spell, maybe ambushing a lonely wanderer traveling along an old overgrown forest path only to realize (after the left side of his face was engulfed in blue flames) it was indeed a powerful wizard!

I converted part of the necklace, swapping out the original pendant for a crude jagged rock that I painted to look like a piece of wyrdstone (for all you Mordheim fans out there) or just a pretty jewell (if you’re not in to Warhammer :P)

Thanks for taking the time to check this out!

    Great version of this Ram! Well done, love the necklace conversion, good idea. Also love the different position on the plinth, looks really like he is charging forward! Pretty cool!
