I’m all out of whip puns

Depending on how often you read my blog, the title may be good news or bad news.

I have taken a week off of work (just spending my vacation days before FY end and my March is going to be very busy) and so expect a lot of updates on my blog.

Yesterday I managed to throw some paint onto my Whiplash figure.

I decided to go with an Asian skin tone.  Vanko was from Russia, but in the Eastern part of Siberia there are a couple of different ethnic groups.  Besides, I was tired of painting white guys.

I might go back and paint the separate panel on his knees like I did his helmet and shoulder.  I obviously need to highlight the metal parts, and I am not sure if I want to redo the arc-reactor.

Anyhow, expect an update on him (and likely a couple other minis) later this week.

Hopefully this was inspiring to you, if nothing else to show how a couple of crude conversions can look a lot better with a bit of paint and patience.
