Quick update... Shadowrun Mage Heroclix Repaint
I worked on the second half of the heroclix figure that I used for my Troll character figure. She started as a Red She-Hulk figure (hence the skin color) that I repainted and added magic effects via 3d printing in clear resin. Yes, I've accomplished what cheap prepainted miniatures did in 2006! Hey, it's still a first for me.
I'm happy with the detail and color of the clear resin (that I colored bluish via a wash to less than stellar results). Somehow the figure didn't seem too dark in tone despite having jet black hair and clothing but now seems like it after I repainted her in dark grey clothes. I keep debating whether I should strip the paint off completely as it shouldn't damage the resin itself as people have been using acetone to clean resin post printing in the post-Covid rubbing alcohol shortage. For now, I'll leave her alone but I may revisit this figure at a later date.
