Hi John,

Welcome to HFM. I've seen your stuff over on the other Network sites.

Tell us a bit about these fetching figures. Manufacturers? Painting medium? etc etc.

As a huge Batman fan, I'm particularly interested in Batgirl...

Hi John,

welcome aboard. It`s nice to have you here.

As a Lara Croft Fan the "Tomb Raider" Girl is my absolut favorite. She looks really good.

Hope to see more of your works.

Cheers,
Markus

Batgirl is the "batrina" fig by Jimmyflintstone she is 1/6. i painted her with acylics and oils and made the base from a wood base from a hobby shop and made the bat symbol from heavy plastic sheet I chose to use iridescent paint (made from very fine glitter and future mixed with transarent pigments to make her look as much like Yvonne Craig's costume as I could.

Man -was she ever a hottie!

Very nice Work John:

And I would think those "fantasy" (not sure that is the correct word )
females figs would be a lot of fun to paint. No hard and fast rules as
with straight historical figs, i.e. the correct color of the tunic for the
Austrian cavalry in the Napoleonic era, etc.

To a certain extent you are right - however you need to remember most subjects have a prototype - Lara Croft clothes are based on the game - Batgirl is based on the 1967 tv show. As these are well known it is even more difficult at times than some more obscure references an example -the Napoleonic wars. An example might be - Superman with a green cape - that's going to stick out -bigtime. Many of the "fantasy" icons are part of the popular culture - whereas the more esoteric - although great fun and difficult don't get the critique from the general public that charecters from popular culture do.
