It’s time to put those finishing touches on this model that I have been working on so diligently. All of the Marvel: Crisis Protocol models come on sculpted city street bases (well, except Thanos and probably some other stuff in the future). These are pretty cool to include and I have decided to use them for all of my figures for this game.

Yellow is a dreaded color by many hobbyists. However, I feel like this is a color I do fairly well. On the Captain Marvel model there are two different tones of yellow that I will actually do. First, there is the blonde hair color that I want to have distinctly different than the the yellow bits around her costume. Both tones will start out much the same, but then I will deviate in shades of yellow for the hair vs costume bits.
Continuing on this series of painting Captain Marvel, it’s on to the painting her face. For Captain Marvel, again I wanted warm tones to convey the plasma energy that she can manifest as part of her super powers. To do that I am going to work with warmer skin tone colors and utilize a slightly different set of techniques then what I have showcased when painting her blue and red portions of her suit previously.
I had a pretty interesting week of hobby and wasn’t expecting to have finished many models. I was quite impressed with the amount of hobby that I was able to actually finished. Starting with Marvel: Crisis Protocol I spent most of my time painting Captain Marvel and creating a series of blog articles detailing that process. I didn’t really realize how time consuming that would be. Once she was complete, I spent time painting up Black Panther as well. He was quick to paint up, but more importantly I am very pleased with how he turned out.
I have been painting mostly super heroes lately and I wanted to work on something different. I painted up Sabine Wren for Star Wars: Legion. This model is from the Rebels animated series and it took me some time to work up all of the different, bright primary colors. The end result feels like it really works. Honestly, it might be one of my better painted models for Legion.
Final model I finished Boromir for the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game. This model is the older metal version of Boromir that they originally released as part of the Fellowship of the Ring releases probably back in 2001 or 2002. I painted the rest of the Fellowship a few years ago and they are displayed on one of my miniature display shelves. For some reason I had never gotten to Boromir. Now he can join them in his proper place.
When I started this model, I didn’t plan to be writing this guide to painting her. She has a number of primary colors that I think make great foundational tutorials into painting those colors which can be applied not only to this model, but to other models where these colors are going to be used. In this article I am going to focus on painting the red areas of the model.
