One of the big guns today – one of Spider-Man’s most popualar arch nemeses – Venom.
Venom was started almost a year ago, shortly after I finished Ultron – but unfortunately I ended up stalling out for a hell of a long time until I had my time off work in January and made the decision to just knuckle down and finish him beyond the base and black base coat. 2 days later, he was complete.
Zemo was a pretty enjoyable model to paint – a model in pretty normal clothing with enough different surfaces and textures to keep it interesting. As such, he only took a couple of days from start to finish once I finally got going.
I’m really quite satisfied with how the final piece turned out, especially after such a long break between starting and coming back to the model.
I did the usual thing with these MCP models that come with Tactical Rocks, and added enough slate and slate dust debris to the base so that it no longer looks like some big chunks of perfectly-formed polystyrene landed on the street in front of the hero or villain’s feets.
Now that Venom is done, I need to concentrate on those last few Core Set models – I’ve got two more of those Core Set models to show in the next couple of days, but still another four to paint (and assemble/finish assembling!)
As with every model shown in my January set so far, this one also qualifies for Dave Stone’s Paint what You Got challenge.
