Cheers folks. Yeah I generally don't go that heavy on the shading contrast which doesn't photograph well as my pics are terrible and it gets washed out even more. Also the faces aren't as derpy if you don't zoom in. :P

The clix are the Ultimate Fantastic 4 versions so I guess technically Reed shouldn't have the grey hair on the temples. I'm not sure heroclix do a Mr Fantastic that isn't in some kind of stretch though I suppose you just need to find a suitable generic dude in spandex and let a paint job do work. :)

I can't take credit for the bases, they're Fenris Games' "Mean Streets" bases.

Lovely FF paint jobs! When I painted my flames for Pyro I did a white base coat and then washes of yellow/orange/red inks. Granted the Human Torch has a whole lot more flames than Pyro.

I decided I wanted a Thanos a few months back but the available minis, either Clix or the OOP Knight Models, are super expensive. Then I saw a job lot on eBay containing two clix parademons and decided they had some potential.



After an acetone bath, some chopping and some sculpting I ended up with a close enough approximation.



...and then a paint job brought it together. Not entirely accurate but close enough and a bit less than the £40+ an actual Thanos clix would cost.   ;D

Nice painting, and well done on the Thanos conversion/painting too.

Abra-Cadaver! Fixed all the images in the thread (photobucket can go get stuffed). Not quite supers themselves but I picked up these East Riding Miniatures Thugs ages ago to use as generic street thugs and muscle. The minis are pretty basic (and super cheap) so I decided to test out GW's Contrast paints with them with mixed results some of which is trying to get used to the best way to use them.




Also realised I never posted the finished Human Torch, photos not great because he's very dark but I went with painting the flames after all.

Honestly, I thought they were sculpts of Ambush Bug on steroids at first glance.
