In Kavorgh's stead, I did manage to finish 77030 Danar, Male Assassin:
I had started prepping this figure for a side project (more on that at a later date!), but during cleanup I decided that it really wouldn't work for what I was going for. Since the figure was already prepped, I decided to push forward despite not having a clear concept. I only knew that I wanted to avoid a black-heavy color scheme, as that was too cliche for an assassin. Looking at the figure, I thought it looked like a good mid-level character; better equipped than a low-level, but not as fancy and individualized as a higher-level.
With that in mind, I decided to paint the armor black for a sinister look, while also conveying that this was more than a common thug. I went with a dark blue for the cloak (good for blending in to dark alleys and poorly-lit rooms), and dark browns for the leather pieces. I didn't want the colors to stray too far (or get too "loud"), so I went with a royal purple for the pants, and a crimson/purple mix for the shirt sleeves.
Conclusion: I'm pleased with how the figure turned out, especially considering it was sort of a "figure it out as I went" approach. The colors work well together, and the figure could totally work for a minor noble (or even an adventurer) as well as an assassin. I intend to hunt out some flock to add some grass effect to his base, but otherwise I think he's done.
One last update: I "upgraded" the eye on the MaC Bot from Bombshell Miniatures/Airlock Games, to better convey the Cylon effect I was going for:
It turned out better than I expected, especially considering just how small that visor slit is!
Next week's Monday Miniature is 77151 Darkrasp, Evil Priest. And as I said, I'll get my go at Kavorgh posted as soon as he's done.
