Batman Miniature Game Arrow (TV)

Another quick victory this week and my 80th miniature of 2016! Only 2 more to match last years output! This was a quick paintjob tbh as the Arrow uniform from the CW tv series is mostly all the same colour. I went for the unhooded head just to have a bit of contrast and his gloves are black though its hard to tell.

This is my fourth Green Arrow leader for my crew he plays very similar to Comic Green Arrow but uses an ability called Multifire in which he can shoot 3 times with one of the 3 types of Arrow (Standard, Serrated and Flash) the only downside is that he can't move at all if uses this ability. I used him in his first game the other night and he led me to victory with Arsenal, Animated Canary, Spartan and the best of the four cops Agent O'Connell.

Painting was simple a base coat of dark angels green, a drybrush of greenskin followed by a further drybrush with spot of yellow add to greenskin to lighten it a little. A Green tone wash was applied all over to help blend it in. As a final touch I use dark tone on the bow, straps, and numerous quivers.

I'm tempted to try him at the next tournament though his back up may change slightly.

    1. Cheers Simon, I feel it breaks up the mini better especially with how much of the same colour is on the mini.

  9. The technique you describe was very simple yet the results were very good. Contrasts were visible at even this small scale.
