I converted a chainsaw-wielding, bag-carrying Brat a week or two ago, and last night painted him up:
I've been referring to the figure as 'The Courier'...I imagine he's some kind of messenger for his gang - a competent loner who is able to look after himself. His slightly more muted gear (leather doublet and boots reinforces that look.
He does however have extravagent checkered shirt and trousers. It is the first time ever I've painted checks, and while it was time consuming, it wasn't as tricky as I'd feared. I used the technical pen and colouring in technique, which was fairly straightforward.
I'm not happy with the finish of some of the edge highlighting on the chainsword, so I need to go back and sort that out before I send the figure on to lasgunpacker.
The hairstyle deliberately draws from some of the Confrontation artwork and concept sketches. There are references to shaved foreheads and hairpieces worn on the back of the head. I quite like the result - still an exotic hairstyle, but perhaps less flamboyant and more in keeping with the character of the model.
