This model is awesome. I really enjoyed painting him. My wife thought I should go with the purple and it does look rather royal. Also the 'king of the jungle' should have a lot of gold, so he gets some very flashy armour. The colours for his mane and face were inspired by google photos of lions and his retinue was done with pale flesh and blonde hair to tie into him. I didn't want anything too stark beyond that.
I can always go back but I left his claws clean. Any thoughts on bloodying them up? I don't think it really fits the theme of the pose/retinue on his base. He looks too statuesque to be dirty...

This model is simply awesome. I really can't say more. Most of these kingdom death models I feel I'm not doing them justice with the painting. I'm happy with my paint jobs, but some of the inspirational photos I've seen are just incredible. Anyway, my humble effort here was an attempt to use real lion tones for the fur and hair as opposed to the white lion which is quite albino. I have more metal work to do before he's done.
