Gator with an Axe: Painting Bloody Barnabas

No surprise to those who know me, I love to paint swampy things, especially gators & the like.
The Gators of the Hordes Minions have always tempted me, and though I really like trolls, I could see myself painting a whole Gator force someday.  So having the chance to paint up the warlock Bloody Barnabas was a treat.

I went for a similar look to the Privateer Press studio version, with a few minor changes.
A swamp water base was a must.

Here he is:

Swamp water bases never photo very well: very reflective & always look darker than they do to the eye.

Thanks everyone!
I'm a big fan of gators and Privateer Press has some nice ones.
