Darkson Designs Mad Dok

I picked this up through Fantization when making an order for bases. I have always been intrigued by the figure as it looks like a good one to integrate into a scenario. I am ambivalent about it right now, however.

It is thin and was difficult to put together (probably because I was in a hurry). Since it is closer to being anatomically well proportioned, it was smaller and more difficult to paint. I have a lot of respoec for the Darkson painter that did this (or whoever "photoshopped" it!) I made the field stone floor from ProCreate and am getting better at using it. I don’t use too much water anymore and am getting the hang of smoothing it down.

On the positive side, I am pleased with the paint job. I feel like it is an above average gaming figure and at a foot it looks impressive. The pictures from my camera always make me shudder as they show every little imperfection, but I know where my errors were and the phot s don’t show (many) more! 

Comments, as always, appreciated.

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
