This sculpt is really cool in my opinion, it had been sitting about on my painting desk for a while when I decided to paint it for a competition. I was inspired by a classic Dwarf that Darren Latham had painted with a candy cane effect on the haft of his spear, I wanted to replicate that, but with a slightly metallic sheen which befits a sorcerer of Tzeentch. Other experiments were the use of magenta to shade the yellow flesh and repeated glazes to build depth to the blues on the armour. I'm happy with the skin and the sword blade as well as the candy cane effect on the staff. All the best! Jon
