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!
This thing is massive. That's a 60mm base that I had to trick out to get it to even fit. It's solid pewter and weighs about 1lb. It was probably the worst cast model I have ever encountered. Every undercut was filled with metal and had to be scooped out. It took forever to paint. For-ever. I'm glad it's over.
