warrior of minas tirith

Last night I tried a warrior of minas tirith, but not my usual approach, which was basecoat of black, drybrush of metal paint. Instead I painted the whole figure in a medium grey paint, with brown for belt-scabbard, and flesh for face, then applied two wash coats of black wash (waiting to dry in between). I like the result - it's not as contrasty as it appears in these photos, it's a bit duller in real life, but it still looks good, and the ink wash over the top of the grey paint gives a look like metal, which I quite like.

Here are 'before and after' photos.
