Swashbuckling Nobles

Hi Gierburgers!

Today I am showing you two young noblemen I painted for Chris. On these guys I went for a "clean"shirt, using a more blue-ish palette to suggest a thinner and more expensive cloth. One that would suit young noblemen.

I started with a mix of VGC Sombre Grey + VMC White and worked my way up to pure white. Some folds in the shirt took some time to get accentuated properly, because they were either very shallow or non existant. I always find that painting whites is pretty difficult and even when you get the hang of it, you need to be REALLY patient.

Richard - Work in Progress

The first one is Richard the Rake (originally named "Diego the Rogue") from Heresy Miniatures. This really cool and charismatic mini is one of Andy Foster's earliest sculpts (along with Scrote, the Jailer) and unfortunately they both were taken out of the Heresy range recently.

The second nobleman is by Black Cat Bases. This one doesn't have a name (yet) - something cianty will hopefully remedy soon!

Just like Richard this one wears a posh white shirt to stress his social status in Gierburg.
