My attention's been elsewhere lately and any semblance of miniature-painting productivity has flown right out the window. I took steps towards overcoming my inertia by pressing forward today with FD's Dispater. A clean sculpt by Ian Mountain that offers the triple challenge of NMM, object source lighting, and freehand in one 28mm package.
The WIP pics show the mini after the application of washes for shading. Further progress has been made since.
