Sliced from his 'clicky' stand with a sharp hobby knife and super-glued to a 40mm circular base, the officer of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage and Law-Enforcement Division) was primed using a couple of coats of "Vallejo" Heavy Blue and shaded in "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade. I then picked out all his straps, holster, quick release buckles, belt pouches, gloves and shoulder insignia with some "Vallejo" White and washed these with Pale Grey.

Lastly, I layered the face of "Fury's permanent second-in-command" with "Vallejo" Heavy Skintone, washed it with "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade, and then 'highlighted' it using a dab or two more of "Vallejo" Heavy Skintone. As a final touch I painted the Deputy Director's bowler hat with a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.

Alongside the leader of the Howling Commandos, I have also finished re-painting two more Gotham Policeman figures by "Wizkids". Available as miniature number 001 from their DC “Heroclix” Hypertime range, the cops were painted in precisely the same method as the first figure I finished last week, with the exception of one having his skin treated to a concoction of "Citadel" Doombull Brown" and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.
