Just in time for the season!
I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis. I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it.
This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely. Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things. But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.
Another one bites the dust….😆
One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle.
And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish. Oh well.
Continuing on my not so subtle theme a a group of 4 Gauntfields with colorful taste in coats.
The 5th Guantfield is one I painted at RC 2018 random paint - just added a few touches to it at home. That was fun.... and came out rather well considering the random colors and need for polka dots on the sickle!
B:GCC - Mission 16 "Like Father, Like Daughter". Orphan tries to stop Scarecrow from helping Orphan spread weird toxins/chemicals throughout Gotham. It makes me wonder who the heck comes up with superhero names in DC, and why someone would go by Orphan if her dad is still alive. Anywho...
I stopped painting for a bit due to lots of unrelated things (like Borderlands 3 coming out for Steam). Now that I'm working from home, I can get back to painting regularly. And B:GCC Season 2 just arrived so my dream of painting Season 1 before that showed up did not pan out.
Father, Daughter, and Scarecrow
Orphan (Cassandra Cain). Not someone I know much about as far as Batman lore goes, but seems interesting. Not sure how she's an orphan if her dad is still alive... Painting her was a bit tough, as some of her details were pretty small.
Orphan (David Cain). Another person I'm not too familiar with. And I hate painting white so...not a fan of how he came out.
Scarecrow. I LOVE how he came out. One of my favorites of this series so far. He looks so pale and weather beaten.
Mr Bloom's Gang. Unrelated to the story, but I need to speed up my painting game, so I'm adding one henchman/police group each time, even if they aren't involved in the story.
"If ever you chance to go to the woods
Be sure that you go by day,
Or the Spindly Man with his long thin arms
Will spindle you clean away."
Scarecrows. The purpose is to inspire fear. For crows, the idea is that it looks like a human.
For people, the issue is that it doesn't quite.
Gauntfield is a truly horrific sculpt. For one, scale creep aside, he's very tall. Over eight foot in scale, if I were to judge. For another, his hands are way too big, coming down to knee level. And those hands are clutching a sack full of bones. That's a red flag. Oh, and he's a reanimated skeleton with a jack-o-lantern sack mask. That sadistic grin! the flapping tatters! The sculptor is very like Gauntfield himself, in that they are both...
...outstanding in their field.
"When it comes to SURPRISES in the moonlit night..."
A Bombshell promotion netted me this Autumn the Scarecrone. Less overtly skeletal, but still a construct of cloth and straw given malign, shambling life and carrying a sickle. Tatterdemalion, rag-tag, hobbledehoy.
The crow on her hat is a nice touch.
Her paint job and color scheme are loosely inspired by Sally from "NIghtmare Before Christmas."
Bonus: Bombshell's Pumpkin Pal!
