Malifaux: Barbaros

The Terror Tot’s big brother is ready to trim your hedges.  I like the lunging pose on this guy, although I haven’t tried to fit him into foam yet.


I decided that the bigger nephilim should be a paler color than the terror tots, so I started with the highlight on the tots (Amethyst Purple) as a base, and highlighted with a mix of the base and Grel Flesh (the Reaper website makes it look like it would be the perfect highlight, but it’s a bit greyer in person).  I still washed with Secret Weapon’s Amethyst.

I tried washing the metals with a dark blue to try to tie back to the purple/blue scheme, but it didn’t really show up.  So I went back to one of my standbys, Armor Wash.

The wings are the blue triad I’ve been using across my Neverborn, but with the Amethyst Secret Weapon wash to tie it together a bit.  I meant to try do some blending at the base of the wings, but I guess I forgot.

The hair is Blue Liner, which is this neat black/grey/blue color, depending on how thin it is.  I thinned it a bit to let it leave the high points with a bit more primer shining through, which gave a nice natural highlight.  I did a light drybrush of Blue Liner mixed with white to bring it out a bit more.
