Street wise eggheads out exploring

These three professors left my desk recently and I really had fun working on them. The minis are very different and doesn’t exactly hold the same scale, but I think the colours tie them together nicely – anyway, that’s at least what I tell myself.


The little fella with the enormous head is one of the pre-slotta supervillains from Citadel, produced along with a set of superheroes, in 1984 together with a few blisters. Both sets are great with some very striking and useful models among them. It does not show too well on the images, but I painted veins on the little doctor’s head, which turned out rather good, if I should say so…


The hooded scientist is recent and comes from the absolutely splendid little line of Colony 87 miniatures. I know you know them – if not – go Google them, go buy them. They are worth it.


The last of the lot is the mini known as the ‘Talisman scientist’. The model is slightly crude and somewhat both awkwardly posed and sculpted, but I like his face with the eyes peering over his glasses. I got the idea of painting his receding hairline from the always excellent Oldenhammer in Toronto blog.

 
That’s all for now. I hope you like them. Any thoughts?

 

Cheers
