Rigel posted a topic in Show OffPainted up the Bones WWWizard of Oz as Hellboy, as so many others have rightly done (for it is an excellent pulp Hellboy sculpt sans tail). Got some good practice with old leather in making that duster; multiple washes and drybrushes in different tones. His skin is Reaper's Cinnamon Red with AP Red Tone and Nuln Oil washes and some AP Chaotic Red touches. Horns and clobberin' hand are mostly Chaotic Red. Movie came out recently to poor reviews, so this is a good time to remind people of Hellboy's comic-book roots: standing in front of poorly-lit Cyclopean carvings from ancient times before encountering a horrendous monster. "The briefing said this temple complex was dedicated to Camazotz. ...what the heck is a camazotz?" "Ah! Christ, you're ugly!" "Okay, bat-face, you wanna dance? Let's dance." The part of the Camazotz is played today by RAFM's "Hell's Harbinger," in their Fantasy Miniatures: Angels of Death collection. A versatile monstrosity that comes with a giant monster-skull base, I've gotten plenty of Cthulhu and pulp mileage out of it. Bonus tableau! "I dunno what you're selling, lady, but I ain't buying any today!"
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.
