A friend of mine for who I usually paint his Empire characters has recently brought me another model to take a look on. This time was quite newish mianiature of young nobleman, described by GW as a “Duellist”. The model comes in Mail Order service together with another noble, but definetely less attractive.
This time requests for painting were almost none. Except one thing – the boy should to look very young, handsome, with a bit of French renaissance feeling. After some research I decided to go strictly into Eavy Metal style as it was presented by Mike Anderson on his sculpt Empire Free Company:
This mini speak for itself and no other additions are needed for such atmosphere. Taking into account that my model is mostly dedicated for gaming purpouses it`s abvious, that I couldn`t go for such delicate base and only the painting itself could be my added value.
Without furthermore bragging I would like to present to you, ladies and gentlemen, a young nobleman (I called him Antoine ;))
I hope it will meet with yours expectacions. C&C are welcome as usuall!
