Breakfast Is The Most Important Meal Of The Day

I finally got around to finishing this guy. He was... surprisingly frustrating to paint. First the paint REFUSED to stick to the primer; I don't know if my primer is bad or if something went wrong when applying it? Seriously though the paint would stick to bare plastic but bead off the primer as though it was allergic or something. That's the EXACT OPPOSITE of what's supposed to happen!

After that my attempts at shading went quite poorly and it took some effort to recover from that. Trying to mix up appropriate browns for bread was... something new. Then it turned out that trying to paint tiny, tiny pieces of toast is actually quite hard; I can't say I'm too happy with how they turned out. But since they are actually so small and hard to see, it hardly seems to matter in the end. Yay?

All this for a model that I can't actually use in-game. Unless people don't mind me proxying him as a Greylord Forge Seer or something... I mean, axe, butterknife, what's the difference right?

This was my first actual painted MOW model. By some coincidence I was just finishing him up as the MOW CID was starting, which is nice timing.

Unfortunately I can no longer access the original conversation where the idea came from due to PP's shutting down the old Khador forum. It's a shame, because I believe this guy is funnier in context.

I decided to go for the classic Khador scheme for him, since I want the focus to be on the breakfast elements and not the colour. I think he looks pretty good, in a traditional sort of way.

EDIT: Thanks to Munindk for providing the original confirmation quote from the now-lost thread:
