Tariq was a fun and relatively simple miniature to paint. Typically I pick miniatures to paint based on need for various table top games, but Tariq is one of the few figures that I purchased and painted simply because I wanted to paint it. Despite being one of my older pieces, it stands up pretty good next to many of my newer pieces.
The armor was done similar to Boris’s armor – painted with a mix of Parchment and Goosefeather, washed/inked/stained with a dark brown, then highlighted back up with the original colors. The metallics were shaded with a wash of black mixed with Vallejo Smoke and highlighted by mixing in some Mithril Silver. The skin was the standard Vallejo mix I used back at the time, left a little darker than usual.
