Lastly in this random image dump we have Spike from Buffy, or at least someone pretending to be him. This is from Hasstlefree and pretty much painted himself (shush you at the back.. Spike wears all black so of course he's easy to paint!). What isn't quite so clear in this photo is the jacket has a satin varnish on so it is slightly shiny, whereas the rest of him is all matt varnish so it doesn't. It is up to Curt if he would like Spike as his Curtgeld, or if he wants to take the risk and wait for the final bonus round entry instead ;)
He was supposed to be the Comedy round entry, but something funnier (at least to me) came along and usurped him.
So that is 10 unbased wolves, 1 standard 28mm figure (possibly Curtgeld) and 1 Terminator sized figure.
Great to see you back Paul, you've been missed!
With this being your first of three submissions today you're definitely treating us to a nice selection of minis.
Those wolves remind me of the old Ral Partha/Grenadier models from the late 80s. Characterful castings, but I remember them having some of the same mold line issues that you describe. You've done a good job on them (and it makes me curious to your wife's art project!)
I love the powersuit model, especially the 'multi-tool power blade' and the paint chipping. Very cool. I look forward to seeing the THI suits in the coming weeks.
Speaking of cool, that Spike figure turned out very nicely. I can see the satin effect on the jacket quite clearly and I like the subtle grey highlighting. I'm going to be selfish and wait to see what your Antihero submission is before I make by decision. Nonetheless I'm going to give you the bonus points now as I know I have a wonderful figure in the bank. :)
