|"I hate those comic books. They never get the eyes right." |
This 28mm plastic figure of an infant Anung Un Rama (“and upon his brow is set a crown of flame”) is model 007 Hellbaby from the “Wizkids” Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. “Heroclix” Action Pack. The demon was created by writer/artist Mike Mignola and the character’s comic book adventures are published by “Dark Horse Comics”.
Having removed the miniature from its ‘clicky’ stand and super-glued it to a 25mm round base, I undercoated it with two layers of “Vallejo” Heavy Red. I then picked out the little fellow’s hooves with White before washing them with “The Army Painter” Warpaint Quickshade Strong Tone. As the red-skinned creature was discovered by the Allied Army, I painted his trousers with “Vallejo” Heavy grey and his shirt with Heavy Brown.
I then washed his trousers with “Citadel” Thrakka Green before using more of “The Army Painter” Quickshade Strong Tone on his shirt. For his flesh and ‘Right Hand of Doom’ I simply tidied up the “Vallejo” Heavy Red before applying a heavy Shade of "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson over the areas. Finally I picked out the eyes of Professor Bruttenholm’s adopted son with “Vallejo” Heavy Ochre.

I have been trying out my "Vallejo" washes on these "Heroclix" models of the Gentleman Ghost and Chemo. Now the Pale Grey has dried on Jim Craddock I just need to dry-brush the "DC Comics" phantom super-villain. I was less impressed with how the Green Shade turned out on my walking mass of chemical by-products. So I have since 'blotched' the large plastic model in "Citadel" Thrakka Green. This has really helped bring out all the swirling detail etched upon Chemo's sculpt. Finally I have under-coated the hat of my The Thing objective marker, having had to rewash his overcoat repeatedly due to my inability to paint the inside of his upturned collar as well as I would have liked.

In addition I have been progressing these models of Moon Knight and Lobster Johnson, as well as washed and dry-brushed one of the tombstone objectives I'm hoping to visit by this weekend. The stone gargoyle just needs some climbing vines being picked out on its column to be finished.
