It's Clobberin' Time! A super quickie.

Knocked this out in about an hour....It was just a plastic toy from some randomly purchased Marvel toy set.  The Thing seemed to be the only one passable for a 28mm, so I gave the rest to my nephews.  The harsh lighting really swallowed up any subtle highlighting, he doesn't look quite so monotoned in real life.

Actually, this is 1/2 of the Fantastic Four here.  The Thing AND the Invisible Woman.  I think I did my best work on her.

The Dog Days of Summer...

First up, I've been digging Captain America lately.  Inspired by the movie, I used a Chronoscope mini and a leftover Shield to create Capt. Rogers in his WW2 Glory days:

I think it worked pretty well.  Also, slowly I've been painting up some Cowboys.  Looks like the gradient photoshop background I put in ate up a bit of the middle guys arm.  Or is that some sort of Active Camo system????

And finally my Avengers Team is assembled!  After quite a while of hunting down Knight Models various superheros, I think the mission is a go.  Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Hulk.  I want to try and up my painting for these fellows, so I've been just practicing on other things to help.  It aint helping...LOL.  Hopefully I can get these guys done before The Avengers movie is in the Theatres....The race is on!
