This is the second of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. The 1980s vibe is strong with this one, and if that is not supposed to be Grace Jones I will eat my hat.
I gave her semi-Egyptian makeup and an ankh tattoo because of course (The Nefertiti references are pretty obvious), and tried to stick with a 1980s color palette to go with the 1980s natural waist and shoulder pads.
WIP thread (unfinished) here.
The other figure in the set, the man, can be found here.
A girl from the set "1502 Teen Robo Hunters" can be found here.
This mini has been with me for over 30 yrs unpainted - finally did it! I'm happy that I was able to finish it in only ~ 6hrs - really fast for me, and that I was able to stop 'fixing' it. I found it hard to attache the field grass this being my first time using it- any hints on how to better do this and keep the grass from leaning so much?
These are from the old Grenadier set #1502 Robo Hunters from the Future Warriors range, sculpted by Mark Copplestone, a vision of the future from the 1980s.
I wanted to paint up some PoC figures. The Grace Jones lookalike was an obvious choice, as was the glowering dude in dreadlocks. The teenager fits too. There's also a guy with some ludicrous hair but I didn't paint him this time.
All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
Pulled out one of the many in my old school collection and finally painted it up. Part of my New Year's resolution which is to not buy any new minis this year and paint what I already own, some of which goes back 30+ years. At some point I may put together a resolution WIP thread to help me stay focused.
Mixed up somewhere in the depths of my cases are the people that came with this beast and someday maybe I'll get to them. If I can find them and all their parts!
