Draconid Sea-Demon Shaman

Here are the photos for my recently finished Draconid Sea-Demon Shaman.  This is my second model for the Scaly Horde faction in DeepWars.  This guy was much easier to paint than the Dagathonan, as I did not use any special patterns on the scales - just blocks of colours with your standard highlights and shading.





 The staff was particularly interesting to paint, as it contained a couple crystals and some engraving in the whale bone.  I added some light blue effects to simulate the glow from the engraved runes and the crystals, along with some reflected light on his arm:



Lastly, the skull in his left hand was given some glowing red eyes, with the glow extending out across its brow somewhat.


All in all, this figure was very fun to paint.  The details are very crisp, which makes highlighting quite simple.  My only grip with this figure is that the figure MUST be pinned to the base.  With only a small metal nub attaching it at the tail, this hefty metal figure would be falling off at any slight bump.  I added a nice length of paper clip, along with some greenstuff to keep it extra secure.  That's just the price we pay for the glorious heft of metal models! :)  Enjoy!
