G, maybe you should think of what colour inclueding all shades and lights you will have on the Bust! And MAYBE (to be on the safe side) test some variations on a cheaper figure just to see how the shading work will look like!). I for myself would go the blonde way for a viking. There are tons of possible colour mixings!

Looks promising! And now go along carefull, with planning (yeah, I know it is blah, but how often I have said this to me! Without any effort, so I consider it as important now, muharr!) The blonde basic looks really good!
Planning wasn't the problem Frank, I'm just not that experienced in painting figures. I will do the best I can and now I will move on to the finish. I started the base painting of the eyes yesterday, they look better than the first attempt so that's good.
Thanks Deano, I'm glad you jump in every now and then, you're one of my favorite modelling artists and the best in 1:72 scale !

I think the little bit reddish in the skin tone fits perfectly to a blonde. It may not look good on this special figure here, but have you ever considered painting "sundots" (do not know exactly the english word for the german "Sommersprossen", you know those darker little spots on pale skin. And to improve my english every time I do not use some translation programs instead of my fantasy when it comes to describe what I mean, harhar!) on a figures face? The idea hit me exactly NOW.
And hats of for the "ugly" mouth, it is really realistic, gulp! Teeth and gums are sculpted very well and your paint job brings out even the most rotten detail.
I know exactly what you mean my friend, we call them "zomersproetjes" (Sommersprossen). I don't know if I will add them, I'll be a happy man if I manage to optimize the contrast of the face and hair. Maybe next time, I think I have a suitable one in its box.
