“After the rains.”
This is my first ever historical figure and it was a joy to paint. Really enjoyed doing the groundworks and the weathering and trying to produce a more realistic representation than I would if it were a fantasy piece. The only issue was the poor texture on the chain mail but I did my best :)

I wanted to depict the warrior during Autumn or Spring, after heavy rains and he's just trudged into position overlooking a battlefield. Someone who is tired but ready for what lays ahead of him.

The figure is the Northumbrian Warrior form the now, sadly defunct Latorre Models. I hope I've done it some justice.

    Excellent job on this figure!  You definitely got the realism you were after.  The painting and scene definitely tell a story and convey a specific mood/feel.  I’m also glad you included a close up of the base.
