Wizard

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, well actually in this galaxy, I bought some figures. There were four of them, a set of adventurers, made by Statuesque Miniatures. And I put them to one side. And you can guess the rest. But now, several years later, I have painted one of them.

When I first saw this figure,it screamed Gandalf to me, for obvious reasons. So I started painting it with grey robes, white beard and blue hat. But then I thought it looked a bit dull, a bit cliche perhaps, so I added a purple cloak. And deeper shading round the eyes. Now he looks a bit more sinister.

Hopefully I will get to the remaining band of adventurers some time, they really are lovely figures. If you like the look of them, they are now available from Crooked Dice.

This is gorgeous. Can you share how you did the robes and hat? I have a Mordheim Nicodemus I'd like to paint up in a similar style.
