So I rewatched The Watchmen over the weekend and got a little bit inspired :)

Doc Mercury (Doc Manhattan)

Trail (Rorschach)

Harrier (Miss Jupiter)

May do the other two or may not, I'm easily distracted... ;)

Definitely...looks great. That highlighting is spot on in the right spots on Mercury.

Thanks team, they were fun to paint, as are all the Pulp minis!

Yep, that's cause I blatantly copied the silver paint job of the studio version but just used blues instead :twisted: . Was really interesting to paint actually, I'm usually a straight forward edge/raised bit highlight painter and I've always used a blackline/comic colouring look so it was quite a bit different. Good fun and happy with the result, I really like the way the black and white checks work with the blue.

Anyway, after all that, here's another straight forward edge/raised bit highlighted job, Sgt Bale! :)

I wanted to keep the pants and vest simple block colours so the focus is the flame hand and the arm tattoo rather than cluttering him up with a heap of camo. He's turned out looking a bit 50's G.I. with the colour pants and "greaser" type hair, which wasn't intended but is pretty cool I think...

A stright forward paint job? All I can say is WOW! I love it.
Not really been a fan of the Bale mini but your example makes me want to put him on my next order.

Wish I could paint even close to that standard

The tattoo looks great on Bale!

Cheers blokes (and ladies if you're reading!).

So I've had a crack at two more Watchmen inspired supremes. It's a bit of a stretch but I've done Skyline as Ozymandias and Jade Hawk as Nite Owl. Skyline was also a candidate for Nite Owl with the cloak and goggles but in the end the padding he's got on was perfect for the gold that Ozymandias needed. Happy with the way they both turned out even if they're not immediately recognisable as homages to their inspiration.

Just the Comedian left to do, and the only Supreme I can think of that kinda matched is Guerrilla!?!? Unfortunately Felstorm is the A.R.C. collector out of us though. Can anyone suggest any other Supreme to fill in?

You are a painting demon!

A very nice pair. Love the gold pads on Skyline. Really shows the technical nature of them.
The colours on Jade (Gold?) Hawk are very striking and work well together.
Impressive on both counts.

So there's some irrefutable laws of physics that rule the world; What goes up must come down, the bigger they are the harder they fall, and, most importantly, red ones go faster :twisted: !!!

Therefore my hands were pretty tied when it came to choosing a colour scheme for Androida... RED!!!

Also finished off the last two remaining Heavy Metal heroes, thus finishing what I set out to do on this thread before I got distracted! Nuclear Jones is my favourite sculpt in the PC range, and him and C.O.R.E. were the first minis I picked up. I wanted him to look more electric than radioactive hence the blue, super happy with him, he's still my favourite:

And the boss. As you can probably tell I normally prefer to come up with my own colour scheme for a mini, however I couldn't think of anything better than the studio job for old mate CORE so studio job he is! It works perfectly with the idea the he's just a bunch of scrap computer bits the is animated by computer power, which is an awesome concept. Still can't quite believe him as the leader of Heavy Metal, I just don't get the emotionless computer running the show, so my story is he's the most powerful fighter but Doc Mercury is the leader behind the scenes :).

Image

Image

And finally the whole team assembled, pumped with how they've turned out. All individuals but the colours work well together and the bases give them a common thread.
