Continuing my tradition of posting my various superhero figures here, I present The Invaders, my entry for round 9 of the recent LPL painting contest over on the LAF (Lead Adventure Forum).

I was originally going to call the entry The All-Winners Squad, but that might have seemed hubristic in the context of the LPL (hubristic in the extreme, given the voting results of round 9).

Nevertheless, I thought that folks might like to see some individual pictures of the various squad members:

And now the toughest bellhop in this man's army...

Bucky (full-face):

The Human Torch (full-face):

The Human Torch (profile):

Note that the Heroclix (android) Human Torch figure is dressed in his outfit from the 2004 comic book series "The New Invaders", not his original 1940s uniform. I trimmed the sleeve pockets off his upper arms to make him a closer visual match to his original outfit.


Toro (closeup):

"Stronger than a whale, he can swim anywhere, he can breathe underwater and go flying through the air...!"

Namor, the Sub-mariner:

Namor's base was my first experiment with a water effect and I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

Very impressive! Your Namor is my personal favorite, but they're all rock solid.
