Colored miniature

Hello again everyone,

I ended my last post about miniatures with a remake of an older one.
A small badger in armor, swinging a hammer - a paladin.

Though I like the raw look of sculptures I think miniatures really benefit from a good paintjob. It increases the readability since they are so small and usually watched from some distance.

I was worried at first and not sure how I wanted him to look, so I took the previous photo and used photoshop to sketch some colors. The first attempt was very grey and dull, since the badger istelf doesnt add much color either. After that I came to like a bronze and gold mix or a red-shaded gold. The first idea to make all his clothes leather was changed to give him a white dress under the armor with yellow accents. This together with the warm-colored armor created a nice impression of a holy knight.
