A few days ago, I decided I would sculpt a new model for the squad. I wanted this model to fit in with the members of his squad when painted, so now I needed to actually make him with some armour that could be given edging, etc, as the previous model wore more chainmail type clothing, as shown with the previous mace wielder.
After allowing my ideas to brew for a while, I managed to sculpt the model above. I really love how he's turned out. I kept the hammer, as well as the swinging motion idea that the original had, whilst also going for a similar approach for the face and hair. However, as you can see, he wears better armour, as well as an armour skirt that has the Zragga emblem engraved in the front section.
Two of my favourite features on this model is the chainmail hood at the back that has two braided tails of hair falling over it. If you look closely, you can see the metal rings in it.
This guy has got to be my most prized sculpt yet. Now all that is left is to paint him. Concerning a topic I took part in in a community, what skin tone do you think I should paint him? I have mainly done the usual pink fleshy skin tone on my dwarves, though of late I have added three chocolate toned dwarves into the mix. I'm thinking of doing this guy as the chocolate skinned guy in his unit, but am still unsure.
As I won't get to paint him until a while after I move, I have plenty of time to think about it. What are your thoughts?
