|Hellbaby WIP - Green trousers and tan shirt are finished. Lobster Johnson WIP - Black highlights done|
I have managed to get quite a few of these “Heroclix” Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense miniatures progressed this week, even if it has simply been a case of removing a few more of them from their ‘clicky’ bases and super-gluing them to a 25mm “Games Workshop” one.
I am quite close to finishing Hellbaby having spent more time than I cared too sorting out all the belt straps on his green trousers. Fortunately they’re now finished and just his belt buckle needs correcting and then washing with “Citadel” Badab Black. The brown wash on his shirt has come out a little darker than I’d hoped. But I can live with it. I have also tidied up the red on his tail and ‘Right Hand of Doom’. Having dry-brushed Lobster Johnson charcoal prior to a “Citadel” Nuln Oil wash, I am somewhat tempted to ‘break up’ his all-black attire with a dark brown belt. But such a move would be a break from his ‘official’ look…
|Kraus WIP - Bullet-proof vest and containment suit are finished. Daimio WIP - Brown boots done|
Johann Kraus is also close to completion as I’ve finished both his brown body armour and tan containment suit. I just need to finish off the experienced medium’s helmet. As I hoped now I don’t plan to submit any of these B.P.R.D. models to the Analogue hobbies Painting Challenge until next weekend I have had the time to repaint Captain Ben Daimio’s boots, and break up his brown leather jacket with a tan holster belt.
|B.P.R.D. WIP - The final three members have been re-based and undercoated|
Finally, as aforementioned, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and Roger the Homunculus have been re-based and undercoated. Both Abe and Roger actually proved somewhat difficult to glue to the smaller 25mm round base as their stance needed to be slightly shortened in order for them to properly fit without their bare feet significantly hanging over the edge. I am also in two minds with the lime green undercoat colour I have chosen for the amphibious agent as his pre-painted model (based upon the motion picture) is much bluer in colour. Yet the comic books portray him as a green-hued humanoid.
