Probably the last work in progress post:
I may modify the snake tattoo slightly, as it looks a bit duff in the photographs.
Painting the dragon head up as wood was tricky, because of its smoothness – the first effort looked more like chocolate, and distracted from the Dwarf too much; so I made it textured and monochromatic through drybrushing it quite roughly.
I’m going to paint the metal areas in non-metallic metals, which is not a method I’ve ever fully mastered, so it’s liable to require a fair amount of trial and error, which can be a bit time-consuming. Fortunately, there are a few versions of this painted by other people which make a good guide, which should prove helpful. Hopefully.

The utterly ridiculous cost aside, the Deathwatch Overkill game looks splendid – and by an odd coincidence, is pretty close to what I’m going to work on next (BellOfLostSouls).
