This week I completed Halbarand, the Cleric from the Heroes set. Looking at this figure I was struck by his warhammer ;-) , and it automatically made me think of Games Workshop. This led to the idea of painting him to resemble a Space Marine in some fashion.
I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying. I then glued the figure to a 1" black-primed fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer's White Glue.
After the figure had had a while to dry, I dug out some old Space Marine decals I had, cut out one of the Ultamarine insignia, and applied it to the front of his surcoat. I let the figure sit overnight, and the next morning I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". Later that afternoon I flocked the base. The next day I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
