Recently finished a model i always loved, Urmuth - Scars of War from Andrea Miniatures. As you'll see on the pictures, it has been painted in a classical way. I tried to focus on technique, achieving smooth blendings and a clean result.
I also decided to remain "simple", so there arent big freehands or fancy effects. I like the mini this way.
The base is also quite simple, to not distract the attention from the mini. But there are also little details to watch, if you pay attention. I like when bases have little details that you dont see at the first look.
The name on the socked is a basic paper sheet with printed letters. I just gave it some colours after a coat of matte varnish. If you dont varnish it before, the print ink wont like your diluted paint.
Very luckily for me, it got gold in Master Fantasy Painting at the Lugdunum 2012 show in Lyon. That has been a great surprise :)
As usual you can watch a 360 degrees view on youtube. Sadly it kills some of the contrast, but it can give a good idea of the mini like if you had it in your hands. Here,s the link:
