Rollo, Duke of Normandy, FeR Miniatures 1:12

September 18, 2021 · in Figures · · 9 · 2.1K

Hello dear modellers,

I've just finished another great FeR Miniature. This time in scale, painted with Abteilung 502 and Scale 75 acrylics paints using a Redgrass wet palette.

I struggle a bit with this one. I've painted and re-painted many parts until I was somehow pleased with the warm colour palette, although I'm still not 100% satisfied.

The texture of the cloak was also quite difficult to do and I'm still thinking it can be better but I'm going to move on to something different and I may come back later once I'm more confident with the technique.

One thing I really enjoyed doing was the shield drawing. I spent a long time looking for Viking references and patterns and I ended up combining a couple of things and I'm quite happy with the result.

Thanks for looking!
