Dark Elf Hero

From : Avatars of War
Armies : Dark Elves
Unit type :  Lords & Heroes
Scale : 28mm metal figure
Manufacturer : Avatars of War 

For this model, its legs seem disproportionally small right out the box. This also makes the heads looks oversize. So I sculpted shin armors and shoes from Alteco’s epoxy putty to give the figure a more proportionate look. 

Meanwhile the coloring was done through glaze and blendind techniques to balance out the colors. The NNM coloring technique was still being used on this piece’s metallic parts (click here for more information on NMM technique ). 
The paints were mixed to closely resemble brass and iron. I also studied lighting and reflection in order to give an appearance of real metals.
