|"I am the Silver Samurai... To attack me is death!"|
This 28mm plastic “Wizkids” model of the Silver Samurai is miniature number 51 from the “Heroclix” Marvel Universe range and is based upon the one-time Daredevil adversary, Kenuichio Harada, as created by Steve Gerber and Bob Brown in July 1974. The miniature was initially undercoated with an old pot of “Citadel” Mithril Silver before I applied a heavy wash of Nuln Oil across the entire figure. I then dry-brushed the Japanese mutant with more Mithril Silver before picking out the sun disc emblem upon his chest with “Vallejo” Heavy Red and the “Citadel” glaze Bloodletter.

Having completed the former bodyguard of the Viper, I have made quite a bit of progress on my “Antediluvian Miniatures” adventurer, Peter Cushion. The elderly doctor simply needs his grey hair and tie painted and washed before he’ll be ready for varnishing and basing.
I have also managed to paint a few more areas on several other “Heroclix” miniatures I have littering my tabletop. I’ve now finished my Robotman’s red chest cables as well as the hero’s blue neuro-electric converter-amplifier and as a result I now just need to tidy up the automaton’s torso and pick out his eyes. In addition I’ve carefully painted up this very softly-sculpted figure of Two-Face, to the point where I really simply need to concentrate upon the disfigured hoodlum’s head before he too is finished.

Finally I have turned my attention back to the numerous “Horrorclix” models I once started painting towards the beginning of 2015 as part of a “Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense” project. This "Indy Clix" miniature of Grigori Rasputin has already had his black gown’s chest emblem ‘picked out’ with blue and gold, so I have been building up the flesh undercoat on the mad monk’s bald head and arms.
