Griffin Paints - The Phoenix Saga!!!

There is something about taking a cheap figure or pieces of broken cheap figures and making something beautiful out of it that inspires me. I love doing this sort of thing, especially if it saves me money. With a wife and 4 kids, every cent counts, so I don't ever pay more than 1 or 2 bucks for a figure, and if I can't buy the figure that I want for that cheap, I make it.

Phoenix - This is a Ms. Marvel figure that cost about $1.25 compared to very expensive Phoenix figures.
This is a painting tutorial on how to make this figure:
Spoiler Alert!




Dark Phoenix - This is also a Ms. Marvel figure.
Here is the painting Tutorial:

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

Cool stuff, Griff! I did a similar thing to my Iceman, I didn't use a wash, though, I did a drybrush. Yours looks a bit more "snowy," while mine looks more icy. I almost want to do that to my Iceman, now, hehe!

And I wondered about that Deadpool. How's the scale on him? It's a good looking figure, but I always thought the Handful of Heroes packs were generally a bit bigger then 'Scape size.

Using two bases is a great way of basing Large or Huge figures without using a peanut base or double base. The two bases are separated to exactly match the length of a double base btw.

Yeah, I was going for snowy as that was how the original Iceman was drawn. Glad you liked him. I really just wanted to cover up his naked crotch and a white wash alone would not have been..... appropriate.

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

Oh, and the scale on most of these is great. Sometimes a bit bigger than Heroclix, but they work really well with Heroscape actual.

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

I've noticed that Heroclix can often be too small so if the Handful of Heroes is a bit bigger that works great.

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

I saw the Handful of Heroes as I was looking for Wave 9 in the clearance aisle (isn't that what WalMart is for?) and I thought of you guys.

Glad to see you made it work, Griff, they look great.

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

They all look amazing, Griff, but your Deadpool is my favorite. Great work. I'd love to see a step by step turtorial for dummies like me.

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

I was going to say the same, Deadpool

Wish I had the confidence to do some repaints. I just don't think mine would turn out half as good as what you've got picture here.

Re: Griffin's Super Paints and Mods

Sorry to be a bother, but do you think you could take a picture of Deadpool next to some other Clix/Scape figures?
