That is actually the waiphoon styracosaurus....Boki gave one to me way back when. It was the first thing he ever sent me. I don't know if they are worth much, more like a better quality chinasaur. i can post pics of my repaint of it if you want
I like the pattern itself, and orange and black work well together. I don't really care for the high gloss on the whole body myself, I usually reserve that for the eyes, and horns and mouths.
The eyes are great, how did you do them??

Teton; The gloss is made much worse by the flash, but he is a little shiny. I'm still learning to photograph small figures so they are clear and sharp without a huge shine from the flash.
I'd love to see pics of what you did with this guy! I didn't know it was a Waiphoon, I have been trying to find out what make he is but I couldn't find him. I bought him together with a baby Triceratops for 1€!
On the eyes: I put a black basecoat on them, followed by several coats of metallic gold. Then I put the pupil and the highlight in, followed by several coats of clear shiny varnish.
I use Citadel paints and inks BTW, from my Warhammer days
And Kuni, I like the inks too. I learned to use them when I played Warhammer. It's very easy to thin them with a little water and add some PVA, the mix then fills up every nook and cranny. They give a very nice, deep color result. But they are shiny. I was planning to dull him down. But all I have is gloss varnish at the moment. I agree the figure is too shiny.
I'm planning to paint my WS Apatosaurus next. If it turns out nice, I'll post pics of it.
