Well, "Endgame" is almost upon us, and surely there could be no better time to post these! 50107, Afterburn, is a magnificent pulp-era flying armored gadgeteer genius superhero, part Rocketeer and part Iron Man. The color choice was a simple one. Screaming Bell, Greedy Gold, DecoArt Rich Espresso, AP Rough Iron, and some Reaper-sample blue. The base comes with some billowing vapors, which I augmented with some cotton for additional effect. And then there's 50080, Zenith. I couldn't resist painting him as my favorite hero, and the dynamism and determination (as well as the almost comically well-defined musculature) made him a natural fit. This was also a good opportunity to get more practice with washes and highlights, to make the bulging muscles pop EVEN MORE. A small clear plastic round sticker provided a shield. Mostly painted in Reaper sample blue, with shades of AP Dark Sky, Chaotic Red, and True Red. The stars, "A," and wing emblems are in silver. Forgive the many pictures; this sculpt has a lot of detail that needs showing off! Next up: villains and action scenes!
Chronoscope has some splendid figures under the "Superhero"/"Supervillain" tags. How could I resist? 50080, Zenith, is magnificently dynamic and determined. The posture would make an amazing speedster hero, but the ludicrously well-defined muscles and enormous pecs (as well as the name) hinted at something else. Not original of me, but I love the guy. I have been advised to use more washes and shading, and so it has been done! Should I try to paint little scale-armor scales on the torso? I need to find a large round-headed thumbtack for shield purposes... 50107 is pretty obvious. A delightful sculpt! Used GW Screaming Bell, Gehenna Gold; ArtDeco Rich Espresso, AP Rough Iron. I'll put some glowing eyes on there soon and Nuln Oil the armor up. Maybe I should throw some copper or silver in there? 80058, the Wild West Wizard of Oz Lion, does not look remarkably leonine. It DOES look like our favorite Dark Horse hero with the serial numbers filed off though: And then there's the unspeakably jacked Crosswire, 50018. This one doesn't map directly onto any one villain, but a combination of the Wrecking Crew and Bane is gonna be fun to paint. (And he'll also make a great techno-luchador!) Should I make his weird superpower drug pods (and bulging veins) Alien Goo green, or Orc Blood purple? I think I'll also put black diagonal CAUTION stripes on the yellow parts of his armor.
Since I have so carefully documented my Dr. Doom conversion I thought I would track my Iron Man conversion. To start with, Afterburn scales very well with truescale 28mm, again using Deano from Hasslefree Miniatures to scale. To start the conversion I removed the fin on top of his helmet. I carefully retraced the panel design and ensured the lines matched. After that, I guess it's on to painting. Oh, not much of a conversion, more of a joke. But as I paint him up I will keep track of it here.
