|Hellbaby WIP - First layers of green and olive to represent the uniform of the Allied Forces|
As inevitably seems to happen with the vast majority of my painting projects I have extended the scope of my latest endeavour, and as a result will spectacularly fail to finish them within the planned deadline.
Originally I had planned to complete one or two of these “Heroclix” miniatures for this weekend. But having rummaged around my “Wizkids” collection I have discovered I have many more members of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, so have decided to spend the next fortnight working my way through them in order to submit them for Comedic Bonus Themed Round of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge; after all the B.P.R.D. is a fictional organisation charged with protecting America in a comic book.
|Kraus WIP - Black boots are finished and trousers inked. Guest-star WIP appearance by Hellboy|
As a result I haven’t yet quite finished this model of Hellbaby yet, but I have managed to complete most of the basic layers of his clothing. As the infant demon was discovered by the Allied Forces in 1944 I thought they’d probably dress him in a spare (ill-fitting) American soldier’s uniform, hence the green trousers and cream-brown shirt.
|Daimio WIP - Black boots, trousers and jumper could do with being broken up|
Johann Kraus wears a simple brown containment suit for his disembodied ectoplasmic spirit, so in order to break up the all-tan colour scheme I’ll be painting his body armour dark brown. The were-jaguar Captain Ben Daimio should also be reasonably straight forward to paint. Albeit now I’ve given myself more time to finish painting him I may well break up the black boots, trousers and jumper.
In addition I have yet to base and undercoat Roger the Homunculus, Liz Sherman, Abe Sapien and Lobster Johnson.
