I like it best when a model does all the work and just seems to come together in your hands. This was one of them. The base figure is a Reaper Barkeep. He was from a blister of three townsfolk I picked up at a LGS a while back. GW doesn't have too many thickset models in their range and this guy was impossible to pass up. As a stock figure he oozed character. He was taking a rag to a stein he had in hand. I'd carved him down a bit more than I might have needed to for this conversion. I'd considered really cutting him up and turning him into a 40k noble (really cool painting from FFG product) and got about halfway through the chopping and had a change of heart. The lower part of the body was a bit of a stumbling block because I would had to have cut him in half or dremel the hell out out of his apron.
