Thrain, before the madness

Now that I got that little rant out, I think it time to show off a model.  So as the title suggests, I painted up Thrain this past week.  I never took pictures or anything until yesterday.  So, without further delay (or ranting), here is the big guy before the capture and torment.

This guy was a challenge for me.  I'm not used to painting gold, and I learned a bit about its properties.  Flow improver tends to separate the pigment from the water.  I found that using just a little bit of water rather than flow improver helped thin the paint to a workable medium.

I had some issues getting his hair to look like that on the GW website, where he has lighter patches here and there.  I'm used to just painting hair a bit differently.  Its something I'm going to have to work on.
