This week I painted this fellow with 2 weapons from the Heroes set. I could not find him listed on the Reaper online store anywhere, so I could not find out his name. If any of you can locate him on their website and provide me with a name and stock number I'd appreciate it. Did he never make it into their catalog? He's only shown as concept art in the Kickstarter page, so I don't think he came from an existing mini. Anyway, this fellow marks the end of the Heroes set, so it joins the list of completed sets over on the right.
(Edit: The folks on the Reaper forum helped me with an ID for him as Drago Voss, Assassin. Apparently not available currently in Bones due to mold issues, but still in the catalog in metal)
I wasn't particularly inspired by this figure, so thought I would use him to experiment doing a figure in colored armor, and another one all in just one color scheme (The other all-one-color-scheme figure I did was the Dwarf Wizard, who I did all in grays).
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 1.25" 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.
By then the wash on the face was dry, so I did highlights on the face with the base "Flesh", then added a little white and did a finer highlight on the nose. I did highlights on the blades with Folk Art "Silver Sterling", and highlights on the parts I had painted "Bronze with Cermcoat "14K Gold". I finished up by adding detailed highlights to the armor with the "Aqua Moire" pearl acrylic. Lastly, I painted the white base with Ceramcoat "Walnut".
After the figure had the overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" the next morning. That afternoon I flocked the base, and the next morning I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
