However, I've still managed to paint up Plasmatron from the Kitbash Miniatures Kickstarter.
Those that are both observant and middle aged might recognise that I've painted Plasmatron to resemble Microwave, a character from the classic PC superhero RPG, Freedom Force, for my slowest burning nostalgia project.
The model is another cool sculpt, and I'm annoyed that I rushed cleaning up the few bits of flash and mould lines under the legs and right arm.
In terms of painting, it was a very quick job. I'm especially happy with developing a new approach to orange which focuses on highlighting up rather than my usual washing down.
I also tried to give the visor a more comic book look, but it didn't really work, so I washed over it and then drybrushed a pale blue. I'm happy I tried to be more ambitious, but also happy with the final result.
I may have had limited time for painting, but I've been more than able to buy a few more miniatures. I bought a small lot from Ebay and managed to grab an extra miniature from Kitbash for a total of 6.
