It's miniatures Monday again, a little later in the day than usual, but while the painting was done, the photography was not. This week we have another barbarian. The miniature is an old lead figure that I believe was from Grenadier in the 80s. That 80s hair is a dead giveaway! Being old, it doesn't have a ton of detail, but I liked the running action pose, so I decided to paint it. I'm curious about the decision to sculpt him barefoot. His tribe seems to have access to steel weaponry but not to quality footwear. I'm pretty happy with the results given that there wasn't much to really work with. In retrospect though, I should have rebased him as his base is small and he is prone to toppling.
