Will bring in Commissioner Gordon and his band of blue here to counter the Penguin's crew from last week.
I didn't paint these up to a massive high degree, but I did try to add some more extreme highlights to them while copying for the most part the box art colors of them.
Had a lot of fun painting up Gordon after the bolt action tournament on Sunday. Quick hits of browns, with some reds/blues tossed in, but more washes of different GW washes over it to give some better tonal differences. The extreme highlights on the white really came out, and I tried the same for the pants and jacket before washing it back down with browns.
The plain clothes police officers. I really liked how they came out with a minimal of colors. But the extreme white placements really shine through on them! Compared to the duller pants/trousers they are wearing.
The SWAT I am less happy with, only because they are supposed to be dark,and they came out dark. But maybe too dark?
But they are done and they were pigs to put together ( much carving into metal here ). But good as a group all the same!
Frank 'The Train" Wilson.. ready to join the Human Blood Bowl team. Originally an apoc fighter found in Savage Forged Miniatures line up, but now recruited and re purposed for the Averland Avengers!
Quick swap out of his bat and shield for some hands that are far too large, but work all the same. I thought they would have been better for him as his scale is a bit larger also ( 40mm tall ).. but seems even heroic Skaven hands are too large for this scale!
Just need to find one more blitzer ( which is what he will be until I get proper ones ) to complete the team.
6 28mm figures and a 40mm scale piece. A slow week for me it seems.. but lots of building has been done in the background for 2 more Blood Bowl teams, and a new release from Mr Lee's Minis! ;)
ByronM: Excellent stuff here Kyle. It is nice to see other groups out there playing (or at least painting) Batman stuff. Around here it is just SteveB and myself playing it that we know of, so nice to see others with it. I really like the hard contrasts on the police, as you say they really pop with the harsh white, and that will really make them show well on the table. I also really like how the jacket and pants are essentially the same blue, but due to highlighting differently you make them look the same yet different, its a very nice look.
On the brown on Gordon, using other colours is exactly the right way to make it look more interesting and something I am just learning to do as well. In addition to the blues and reds you used you can skip the mix and go straight to the resultant purples instead if you want, and you can even try some greens and oranges (both in small quantities), blacks, and greys as well. For "The Train", the hands may be big, but I think it works. Have you seen some players hand sizes? Or some boxers how their hands swell after years of abuse and damage? I think it works well and I like him.
