Trollbloods Madrak Ironhide by DC23

I just finished my first ever metal miniature from Privateer Press. This is a variant figure of a Trollbloods Madrak Ironhide. Madrak I believe is the chieftain of the Trollbloods thus I think it was a bad decision to paint him first, as I should have practiced on cheaper or less important characters first.

I am pretty happy with how it came out though as it looks way better in person than my close up ( blurry ) macro shots.

It was super fun painting this figure as it is packed with sooooo much details! I also got lucky I found a small rock that complimented the pose of the figure and gave Madrak a more chieftain / leader look. I learned a lot in painting miniatures with this one and I need to get a few more painting supplies. Mixing of paint to get the right colors is a waste as you tend to mix a lot. So will get more Vallejo paints soon!

I also think the the black oil washes kinda blurred some details and gave it too much contrast... will need to buy Citadel inks or more Vallejo washes in different colors. One problem though, although I enjoyed this figure so much... I do not have another one to paint. Will need to buy a couple of cheap Trollbloods as my practice figs soon.
