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 it. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
Next, I painted his eyes, as I wanted to be able to see them peering out from behind his face covering. I then painted his weapons, the studs on his studded armor and the triangular armor bits, with Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey", and highlighted the weapons with Folk Art Metallics "Silver Sterling". Lastly, I painted his integral base with Ceramcoat "Walnut"
After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" in the morning. Later that morning I flocked the base, and that evening I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
I'm pleased with how he came out, and enjoyed the challenge of doing this figure in all black.
