They are roughly the size of a baseball and pretty nicely detailed.
Solid cast resin.
They make for some nice fun busts to paint for around $10 each.

This one has lots of nice detail. Should be a blast to paint..
Decided to go with one of the cheap bases I got at WF also.

First, I preshaded some areas with some blue and purple

Then I went over it with some brown watercolors to darken the overall appearance
and to act as a sort of wash as wel.

The base got a light dusting of white spray paint to give it it's highlights.
Then it too got hit with brown watercolors to give it color and depth.

Painted in the lettering, then started to dirty up the banner.

A little dark purple washes in the bandana, finally painted the eyepatch, and detailed the teeth a little.

Getting close. Been doing the detail work.
Some pastels in the facial details. the hair, and some other little bits on the kit.
Just need to dulcote it, then do some brass painting on a few bits.

Well, I couldn't find any brass, so I went with gold.
He's finally done. Will do a page with lots of pics after WF.
