Shadow Empire - Lo Pan

It's been a while, almost 2 months in fact, but I have returned, and I bring with me the darkest magic.

The main man himself, Lo Pan, is now complete. I needed something groovy to drag my out of my hobby mire, and you don't get groovier than this guy. He's one of my all time favourite villains, so adding him to the collection is most gratifying. I've really enjoyed painting the vibrant Chinese robes on him and his Yaoguai, and they contrast very nicely with the terracotta warriors.

Lo Pan lays down a sick rap while his man bangs out heavy percussion. Or concussion.
I trawled the net for reference, and I took a rough palette from some of the images. I reduced down the decoration on the robes to just lining on the hem and sleeves, and boiling the rest down to a few main colour choices. Lo Pan flavoured rather than a direct attempt at his exact outfit. He loves his bling, does Dave Lo Pan.

Gonna magic you good.
I decided to give him glowing eyes, because it's cool. I'm keen to get him on the gaming table, as he's just so damn quotable. I'll be wary of any enemies with decent reflexes and good knives though. I think Lo Pan has spent enough time in the hell of those killed by idiots.

Lo Pan and his bros.
With Lo Pan finished, I'll be moving onto a unit of guardians. I reckon back in ancient times he had a few more in his service than just the one lonely dude floating about his lair. I may in time add some cultists so I can use him in a more modern setting. The three storms are in the queue as well.

Lo Pan and his loyal Yeren.
So, now I am returned from the wilderness I'll be lashing up more painty goodness soon. Rejoice!
