One of my many long term, ongoing projects is the painting of an 80's wood elf army, using the classic Jes Goodwin sculpts. I have collected a couple of dozen of the min so far and whenever I feel like it, I paint up an elf. They are hard to paint and take patience and skill and they intimidate me, so it takes me ages to drum up confidence.
I recently finished up a bear handler with his two animals. I had the handler for ages, but finally got a hold of the bears.
I wanted to give the bears a bit of height, so I could play with the base a bit more, but also make the bears different from each other. The sculpts are the same of course, Citadel made only one bear for this range.
