Super Saturday

I've been taking things easy for the past few evenings (= no painting) to give myself a bit of a break after the SYW Russians. This weekend I'm making up for it bu cracking on with the Supers. I've made decent progress, with just one figure needing a lot more work to correct a cock-up I'd made with a wash after airbrushing the basecoat. See if you can guess which one.

Tomorrow I'll be carrying on, but might focus on one or two to take them to completion. The rest I'll complete during the week.

After these are done, my plan is to assemble and paint Tanya Tanker, the review figure I was sent by Raging Heroes. I won't be posting any WIP pics but might include some in my (eventual) review post. I still need to decide whether to leave her on a blank base, do my own basing or buy a suitable base topper and pin her to it.


  1. Looking good. I particularly like the chap in the Greek helmet.

  2. Very nice with some vibrant colours.

  3. Perfect colours. They are coming along nicely.

  4. Despite NOT being a Supers fan I do like what you have done with them.

    Definitely 4 colour!

  5. Terrific figures Tamsin, love the colours.

  6. Terrific figures Tamsin, love the colours.

  7. The yellow one? The cock up that is.
    My mistake with washes is using too much GW shade wash on a figure, and then the wash develops air bubbles in the pooled areas of recesses once dried.

  8. Careful Tamsin! I'm addicted to the crossover minis, I have scores of the minions and supers primed and waiting for winter! ;)

  9. These must make a refreshing change, fabulous start Tamsin.

  10. @ Millsy - cheers! I wasn't sure about that one when I first added the head, but it does look good :)

    @ Dannoc - thanks! Supers should be in vibrant colours...well, mostly! :)

    @ Natholeon - cheers! :)

    @ Clint - thanks! Not really my thing either, but they are a fun paint :)

    @ Loki - cheers! :)

    @ Ray - thanks! :)

    @ Roy - yup, that's the cock-up. My own fault really for not glossing over the yellow outfit before spraying the wash :(

    @ Francis - cheers m'dear! :)

    @ David B - I have no intention of getting addicted; these are for a friend at work :)
    Does this mean that we can expect a big supers and minions entry from you in the next Challenge? ;)

    @ Da Gobbo Grotto - thanks! :)

  11. Super duper stuff here. Seriously, great fun.

  12. Looks good so far Tamsin! Like them!
