Games Workshop classic halberdier

Another random grab out of my lead mountain, I also enjoy how easy it is to paint the old Games Workshop stuff. This is one of the first Empire figures I ever bought; I know that because this figure was among a few that had a socket in the torso allowing you to choose a weapon to plug in. The options were halberd, sword and shield, or great sword. I have five or six of these guys around. I can't believe they're more than 20 years old, now.

Like the pirates, I enjoy the over-exaggerated sculpting, which makes it easier to pick out and paint details. And there's not a single skull on this GW figure!

I'm not done with the pirates -- I have a few more almost done -- I just felt like painting this guy tonight.

And soon, I'll have to paint some more Bones figures for Jeff- ugh, those suck to paint.

They're at the opposite end of the spectrum for sculpted detail; all the features are flat and the definition is shallow. I might as well be painting figure flats.
