This week my time was entirely spent on painting the second figure for this diorama, images of which appear below.
The figure in question is from the Reaper Pathfinder range and goes by the name “Valeros, Iconic Male Human Fighter” and the composition of the figure is perfect for what I have in mind to do with him. There is very little to say on the paint job itself but some of you following the progress of this diorama my well be asking at this point “so what is going on here then?”. You’re not asking? Well that’s OK then because in any event I have no intention of telling you exactly what is going on for at least another couple of weeks.
Now where do I go from here? Well next week I have four aims. Firstly to explain two minor problems I encountered and how I have hopefully resolved them. Do some more weathering and ground work and add the wooded posts and rope ballistrade which goes up alongside the steps. This last step involves glue and I hate glue so I am not looking forward to that bit very much. If I get all that done I will move on to the final piece of this diorama jigsaw. That should take a couple of weeks I reckon balancing it alongside the fact that it is now spring in the UK and I have loads of jobs to do outside in the garden. If that goes well then I will be ready for the final post which essentially will be images of the end result.
