During the last Box of Goodwill I came across an almost full set of the Mega Miniatures Kung-Fu blister. Initially I only grabbed a couple with the intention of painting up some generic ninja type mooks. Then an idea formed and I found myself taking the whole blister. These figures looked perfect to replicate the 80's TMNT Foot Clan. Knowing I wouldn't get to them anytime soon I spent a session prepping them so they would be ready the moment I finished my Robotech project. After some bases, a bit of greenstuff, and some primer (picture is obviously before priming) I set them aside. Starting the session I actually intended to paint the generic ninjas in batches of three. Thanks to a bit too much paint on the pallette however I went ahead and basecoated them all. The basecoat is very rough and will require some cleanup but I couldn't belive just how quickly they took their two main colors. Obviously I didn't get to them right after my Robotech project but I did start them immediately after my TMNT Tau so that should count for something. Right?
This is a group I have been working on for several months. Left to right: 77418: Xiao Liu, Female Monk, a repainted clix figure, a pair of 60152: Brotherhood of the Seal (Brotherhood? They have pretty large busts to be 'brothers"), 2534: Kiri, Female Ninja, another asian themed repainted clicky figure, and 2731: Yuri, Female Monk. I didn't want to use all black on them, so they are painted in dark purples and blues, with some brighter colors for accents. Also Xiao Liu and Yuri needed some clothing modification for modesty.
