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.
When the wash was dry, I painted his eyes, then began with the highlights. I did his face and hands first; highlighting them with the base "Shading Flesh", then adding a little Americana "Mocha" to it to do some lighter highlights. I then highlighted his cape lining and scarf, first with the base "Blood Red" then with some Americana "Burnt Orange". I then worked on his pistols; painting them first with Accent "Princely Pewter", then doing highlights with Ceramcoat "Metallic Pewter". I finished by painting his base with Cermacoat "Walnut".
After the figure had the afternoon to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" in the evening. The next morning I flocked the base using a sand mixture and static grass, and later that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
I like how he turned out. "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of gamers? The Black Mist knows!"
