Another 3 stunning minis.
Nice highlighting on Androida, very nice gloe on CORE and an amazingly stunning take on Nuc Jones.

Really, really impressive.

Cheers all.

The final piece of the Watchmen puzzle came together for me! The Comedian was a tricky one but I found the spare head I got with Iron Train and looked at Ace of Wraiths with his body armour and gun and everything clicked. Just needed to add the cut down Space Marine shoulder pads and he's good to go!

Which means the Watchmen of Pulp City are complete now too.

Here's the movie version:

Here's the action figure based on the comic book version:

And here's my version based in Pulp City, a fully functioning 9lvl Hero team :)

This not-Watchmen project has been brilliant to watch unfold. Thanks for showing them to us. :)

Out of those last 3 pics, I prefer the 3rd.
Looks much more impressive.

Amazing work

Thanks everyone for the kudos, hope you all had a bonza festive season!

Latest Supreme is Vector and his pixels. I bought him and Kitty at the same time I bought C.O.R.E. and Nuclear Jones at Auscon last year which were my first PC purchases so massive fan of this mini. I found a cool pic of the Space Invader icons in this gradient green so I did the pixels like that first. That guided my hand for Vector's colour choice which is basically replacing the studio red with green and making his chest piece stand out a little :)

I thought I'd bang up my BOOMinion for closer inspection as well. To tell you the truth I have slapped 2 colours on all these guys just to have them painted so they're basically just metal with maybe a glowy bit. But they work perfectly with the Heavy Metal crew or with Vector commanding them. The Toolbotz are my favourite, they're names are Stop, Wait and Go...

A few extra hours of painting time snuck in today so here's Vector's box mate Kitty! I've gone for the latest colour scheme from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland Cheshire Cat but with blonde hair (cause blondes have more fun :)).

And a couple more minion. The TV Reporter is my June Summers model and the priest is Father Joe, his BOOM card is below.

Cheers mate. She's a Reaper mini, from the Chronoscope range, same as the priest and the toolbotz. I think she's called Natasha the spy or something, she's usually holding a revolver, I just made a mic out of bits for her :)

heh - if you go for contrast strips like this mint green on Cherse- add a oposite color to it so mix in shadows purple to this grey - it wil make all things pop up :)
