Mini Pics!

It's been a while since I posted some real miniature-related content, so I'm pretty excited to post some pictures of my just-completed superhero miniature. He really isn't painted extremely well, but I think he turned out decent. The skin looked a lot worse a couple of steps ago, with way too much contrast between the darkest parts and the highlights. So I went out on a limb and tried a glaze using my mid-tone orange. A glaze is basically an extremely thinned-out layer of paint. I think I had a 2:7 ratio of paint to water before I got the right consistency. It was originally 1:7, but it was too thin so I added another drop of paint. The purple shorts are part homage to the Incredible Hulk, part tinkering around with the color wheel, and part looking at bodybuilding magazines and realizing that bodybuilders tend to wear speedos in the worst colors imaginable. I think from here I'm going to write up a character sheet for this dude using the Mutants and Masterminds rules. He could also be used in the Supersystem miniatures game.
