The miniature is from Reaper, one of their Bones series in plastic. It has the imaginative name "Townsfolk:Blacksmith 77142". The initial coat of VJ Sunny Flesh and VJ Saddle Brown came out all wrong. The flesh got a wash of Citadel Reikland Flesh Shade and the leather apron a top coat of Jo Sonja's Red Earth and then I was happy to move on. The pants are VJ German Grey (seems to be my go-to grey) with some dry brushing and the metal is VJ Oily Steel with a wash of Citadel Ink Marron Brown and I'm very happy with the used look it has produced (I was trying for a colour that I associate with the collection of old tools I inherited from my dad). The tree stump gave me the biggest trouble and I will leave it for now until I base the figure.
My first Saga game is scheduled for just under two weeks.
I think my Vikings will need a drink.
