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.

Managed to find a bit of brush time today.

 

I have included my primed pic as I think the black shows off the details best.

 

I have done out the basic block colours.  For his eyes, and pulse areas (and power) I will do that before I add in final colours as I want a bit of bleed-over for a lazy OSL.

 

I always start with a couple shades darker than I intend to finish with as my base coat.  Gives me natural shadows and recessed shades without using washes.

 

I also lied before, this morning I had to carve out the piece of his helmet that is red on the face.

Thanks for the positive feedback and likes.

 

To show off my process a bit, the first pic shows before mid tone above the waist and after below the waist.

 

Today I managed to do some more brush-work and have now brought the main panels into the mid tone.  Still highlighting and battle damage yet to do.  I also intend to have some chrome bits that will be shades of grey (boosters in feet and blaster rings in palm).

 

I am wondering about battle damage.  I intend to add a bit (not end of every movie scale, just a few scrapes and gouges).  I also intend to use a gloss sealer to make him shine.  When would be the best time to do the damage: before or after sealing?  I don't have a lot of experience in using sealers so I am hoping for some advice.

 

More pics and rambling on my blog.

I decided to post an update even though I think I need to fix some mistakes.

 

I brought the yellow up too light now, so I will need to do some washes and/or glazes to bring it down a few shades.

 

To show off how bright it is, I have him beside my Black Widow proxy (Hasslefree Miniature Ekaterina).

 

I will add the battle damage first, then decide how much I need to tone it down.

 

Anyhow, comments and any relevant advice appreciated.

Today I did the final washes and the metal parts.  I thought I did all the battle damage.  And I sealed it.

 

Of course after I took the pics below I see the I missed doing the battle damage on his knee.

 

Anyhow, other than basing (and the damage to be finished) any comments or suggestions?  I'm ready to call him done.

      Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences.
      Miniatures
      Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys.
      Hero Decks
      Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises!
      Villain Decks
      Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain!
      Issue Decks and Issue Boards
      Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win!
      Issue Guides
      The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered.
      Hero Dice
      Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls.
      Tokens
      Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion.

      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.

      We have all had brushes with the hard to explain , the apparent impossible , the out of this world ... here's a chance to share a memory or few ...
       
       So way back in my younger days me, my brother and two friends we coming home from an all day "monsters of rock" concert in San Francisco,  we stoped at a store to pick up some liquids refreshments and snaks for the ride home when I saw them ... coming down the street was a largish gang "wilding" , basically thumping everyone that came across their path ... they were a block away and I was the last one to get into my car ... "hay guys get out" , I said, "let's teach these punks a lesson" ... now I was the assistant wrestling coach at the local college wail I was still in high school and have had a wide range of training over the years so this wad kind of a natural response for me ... the other three had way more common sense, asking me to get in so we can go , this went on as the gang kept coming down the block beating up all who crossed their path ...
       
       Just then I herd a car screech to a stop, out of it flew a figure dressed all in black with the bat man emblem on his chest , he dashed across the street in short order armed only with two sawed off baseball bats and laid into the gang ... after over ten years of hand to hand combat training I can tell you, he knew what he was doing and executed every move with impressive precision ... after one of the best fight scenes I have seen in any bat man movie he dashed back to the bat mobile (A primer black ElComeno) and was gone ... leaving a mess of moaning thugs and cheering fans ... 
       
       What a day, Monsters of rock and Bat man ... hard to say witch was more intense.

      Couple of tabletop Bones figures I painted over the winter and have been able to finally finish now that spring is here. 
       

       
      The Black Mist is actually done in shades of blue and purple, but the subtleties don't show on my cheap camera.
