Three More SuperFigs Complete

During my April painting frenzy I finished up a few more of the SuperFigs models that have been sitting around waiting for colours. According to the profiles available for SuperSystem, first two are members of the "Crusaders of Crime"; Dark Templar and Black Claw.

After I painted Dark Templar I realized that he's almost a perfect looking figure to use for The Master, to lead my Omega Flight team. I considered repainting him without the gold and adding a little more red, but opted against it. Most people aren't familiar enough with the character to really know the difference, so he'll do just fine as is.

Black Claw was going to get a bit of glow effect on his left hand but I messed it up and just went back over it with the previous colours. I like the dark outline on his eyes, which feel like they make him look a little more eeeeevil.

Finally I finished up the massive-for-no-reason Stalker. There is nothing in the character profile that would explain his size. Like a lot of the other SuperFigs I had to trim down the integral base on him a lot. With Stalker I wanted to try a few colours that I don't usually use and think it turned out nicely.

The jumpsuit is P3 Ironhull Grey, the cape is GW Hawk Turquoise, the gloves are P3 Cygnar Blue Base and there are a few touches of P3 Murderous Magenta in there too. I used some AP Dark Tone as a wash. After that I went back in with the base colours, and finished it off by highlighting the cape with some P3 Trollblood base.

Awesome! It's great to see some SuperSystem fans out there, I've been trying to get some players down here so I can try it out. Keep it up!

Nice! Makes me want to pull out my SS figs and finish them!

They really are great miniatures with a coat of paint on them. I still have a half dozen or so to finish, plus a couple sets of henchmen. I might pick more of them up in the future too.

Thanks Ryan. We have played a fair bit of 3rd edition and more recently a few games of 4th. I feel like I prefer 3rd a bit more but haven't played enough of the new rules to really say for sure. I've converted some of the profiles For the SuperFigs I have painted and really hope to get some games in soon!
