Decided to do this on a whim today.
I always felt the 7" "War Paint Conan" was never a true depiction of how
Conan looked in the Mountain of Power sequence as the "white" part of his
body paint camouflage is practically non-existent:
So I went ahead and tried my hand at a repaint of my figure:
Went with a watered down white acrylic. Basically trying to go over the flesh
parts without laying it on too thick.
I also tried to keep some realism to it, in that the war paint would not be
even all over and would have rubbed off in areas like his armpits and the
palms of his hands.
His face is probably where I tried to go the lightest (mostly in case I screwed
it up ).
The back- this is obviously where I started from as the paint is pretty thick
(and I kind of went over his black camo lines *oops* ). No big deal as
it won't show in my display case.
All in all I'm happy with the result. I definitely think it is an improvement over
the original look.
