|The Black Mist WIPs - Both models have been undercoated with "Citadel" Abaddon Black|
One of the mini-projects I wanted to complete during the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge is to paint a “Reaper” miniature in both its original metal form and its Bones variant. Such a task will not only provide me with a miniature which I can submit to the imminent Anti-Hero Bonus Round. But that miniature can then also be dispatched to Curt as payment for entering the Painting Challenge in the first place. The second figure would also come in handy as my prize to the eventual winner of “The Pulp Trio” side-challenge.
As a result I’ve based both the “Reaper” Chronoscope metal model entitled The Black Mist Vigilante (code 50217) and the “Reaper” Chronoscope Bones plastic miniature The Black Mist (code 80007); sculpted by B. Ridolfi.
To be honest the difference in quality of their detail was rather evident before I’d even removed them from their packaging, as the Bones figure has several edges which appear to have been torn as they’re rather jagged. Perhaps unsurprisingly the model also took a bit more effort to undercoat black, as the paint simply kept pooling for the first few layers. The sculpt is clearly heavily inspired by “The Shadow” from the Thirties pulp magazines, so I plan on both being predominantly black in colour with some charcoal and deep red breaking the monotony up.
|Not Tarzan WIPs - All five models from Kojar Of The Forest Tribe have been undercoated|
I have also turned some attention to some of the models from the “Pulp Figures” collection PLT09 Kojar Of The Forest Tribe. Having painted all three of Bob Murch’s wonderful Killer Apes, I have started work on Bongo the Chimp, as well as some close approximations of Tarzan’s Jane and Boy.
|More Hired Killer WIPs - The gangsters clothing will range from green-brown to light grey-blue and cream|
In addition I am still slowly progressing the ten hired killer miniatures from “Pulp Figures” “Gangland Justice” range, and hope to have a couple finished by the end of the week.
