Repaint of Archilon Shadowheart Human Warrior

This is a repaint of the figure Archilon Shadowheart, Human Warrior from DC's World of Warcraft Series 2 action figures. Painted for private commission to match closer to a player's paladin character. I sculpted over the skulls with lion heads on his shield and pauldrons as requested, and added the character's guild tabard. The figure's wrists are posable and the shield can be removed if so desired. I'm still searching for the original sculptor's name to add here, so will hopefully update soon with that info, really great dynamic figure to work on! The figure is cast in plastic and is roughly 7" in height. Painted by Anne Cooper (me) using various companies acrylics, a mix of Reaper, GW & Vallejo.

The original figure as it comes out of the box unassembled for comparison:

Lion Shield WIP

Woo sculpting! This is a wip photo of a shield, modified from its original, which was a large skull to a lion's head. Pretty fun doing shallow relief, the shield is about 3 inches long and 2 wide roughly, and I'm using green stuff for the material ( a 2 part compound). Part of a project modding a paladin figure, from I think a deathknight for private commission. I'll add pictures later of the final version.

and a not as great pic but eh documentation, 1st basecoat in blinding sun
