I have had very little paint time for past two weeks and this one guy took up all of it. Totally worth it! He was a blast to work on and the finished model is just the right amount of silliness.
Although I love how this turned out, I can’t help but look back now and think I should have made the carpet a bit more tattered when I was sculpting it. Maybe add some tassels to it?
Also, if I was to do it again I would have left him off the carpet until after I painted the carpet … free-handing under his robe and around his feet was needlessly painful, lol.
Hope you all are having a wonderful summer! Happy painting!

Brilliant work! Can't believe you painted the carpet with him on top! Madness!
How has he performed in your games?

D'awww, I was hoping it would have some sort of pseudo-Arabyan pattern.
He's one cool little dude 🙂
I really like him, although the paintjob you gave the carpet made me think think of a banner….
…Which in turn made me think that it would have almost looked cooler if it *was* more obviously a tattered old banner that had been enchanted into a fashionable ride for the Chieftain! Next time maybe? ;0)
amazingly detailed it looks terrific
Thanks all. I do have another idea I am working on now for ANOTHER model with the same gear. If I pull it off it will be epic! Will post the pre-primed as soon as I get one more piece to put on it.
I love this model. The freehand on the carpet is epic. Bravo!
I love this, although it reminds me a little bit of a flying duvet. Perhaps this is what gobbos get up to when they fly to sleepyland after too many mushies?
