Barret the Ranger, version 4. I think.

Worked on this fig for a while... I've had it sitting around for a couple weeks now, adding little details every now and then. Finally decided to take pictures and post it.
Also, I used E-tape for the first time, making a couple sheaths, straps, and the edge on the equipped shield.

That last one is probably one of my favorites. Has a pretty epic pose, if you ask me.
All pics are links to bigger better pictures.

Nice fig, painting on the sword, custom cloth cape and coat and sword sheath.... It's also nice to know that my brother and I weren't the only people to use fake flower parts/aquarium plants as trees. ;)

Thanks H&K, and Hikaro!

@Hikaro: Actually, the swords handle is just wrapped with a really thin piece of electrical tape to give it a cool look. And that tree is just from megabloks :9

I like how he has so many layers. He looks buff and like a viking IMO, without the beard/helmet. Lol.

Really? The reason I said that is because that tree looks EXACTLY like some of the plastic "Fern" bits from fake floral arrangements that my brother and I took apart back in the day (about 20 years ago, lol) and stuck in 1x1 round bricks or 1x1 cones to augment our LEGO forest....

Great piece CB! I would have to say my favorite part is his little hidden knife! the sheath and shield are great custom elements too!
OH PS The story is really good so far too!
