Post Apoc: Our great savior, The Oppenheimer, Bringer of Light
This was an easy model to paint. First of all, the pedestal was recycled (oh yeah, I was lazy today) from an older statue I had made for a terrain contest at our local FLSG (I won second place.)
I glued the 60mm Marx figure (from the Lassie set I think) to the pedestal, primed the whole construction- flock and all- then painted him up.
I painted the pedestal first with a base of tan. I then stippled lighter and lighter layers one upon the other.
I used the same technique on the bronze statue, except I started with Foundry Storm Blue as a base coat, then I mixed in more and more amounts of light green, layering the statue with more stippling.
The statue represents the main deity of my post-apoc world, "The Oppenheimer." Everyone (except the Waiteri tribes) in Septimontium worships The Oppenheimer as the bringer of light and creator of the world.
