I spent the longest time thinking about Baldur's colour scheme. I wanted to get the red in there, but I didn't want him looking like Santa Claus. I think I still have to work on my technique of painting black because his armour didn't quite turn out how I wanted it but I'm happy enough with the look.
This is another model that looked terrible until I finished it. Getting the green into the metal was the point that tipped it over into what I was hoping it would look like when I started painting.
