Dark Elfs: Dreadlord Converted

My first real character for this commission. This guy has a ton of details on him, and was slightly converted by the client due to it being part of a lot purchase and had pieces missing from it.

Since it was a character model, I wanted it again to stick out from the crowd. Using the same basic colors, but added the reds here to again accent the colors. The dragon on the shoulder I did up in darker greens, and a brown belly. Similar to the cold ones, except a bit darker.

It did not take long once more, as I just got stuck in with it and went to it for painting. Actually what was funny was that I was working on it in the morning, and the owner called me to say he was on his way over to drop off mode models. I had just basically started on it, and had just the metals started, but by the time he appeared 45 minutes later a majority of the model was finished. Was just needing to do up the gems, dragon, face areas.

What is fun with this model, is that I painted up the squished High Elf helm with the colors ( almost ) to that of the client's own High Elf army. Always nice to tie these kind of models together with others that are familiar or common to play with/against.

Not sure what is next on the plate, but there is not much left in the commission at the moment, so its getting very close to completion now.
