Cojo, crazed killer ape
I had a lot of fun painting this guy. His name is Cojo, and he's for the game, Malifaux, by Wyrd Miniatures.
I probably spent around 6 hours on him, I think, from box to finish. I've been looking forward to painting him, ever since I saw his artwork in the new Malifaux rulebook. Crazed killer apes just rock.
The hair on his head is a repurposed grass tuft. I haven't seen anyone do that before, so hopefully it's convincing. I like it.
Here are the WIP shots. This was after priming with the airbrush.
And here is the raw modeling, so you can see the grass tuft and the seam-filling.
That white seam on his cheek didn't fill in entirely, and you can notice it on the finished model. It was hard to judge on the raw model. Lesson learned.
