Sat on the shelf for a couple of years. Finally gave it some attention yesterday.

Love it! Just like old school citadel colours.

Thanks!

It started with an idea to test a metallic combination that would simulate iridescense (applied on the trenchcoat) and ended with a nod to Grant Morrison's "The Invisibles".

Thanks for the kind comments, everyone!

Pimp my gang! :lol:

That same expression occurred to me when I looked at the finished miniature... Having bought a full gang deal a couple of years ago, what if I'd paint a full gang in "outrageous" pimped style?

Painting every model as an individual the whole thing might end up being a sort of mish-mash and lack gang unity but, like "real life" gang members (who don't exactly wear uniforms but have a few distinguishing signs to show their allegiance) they do have some points in common (bald heads, trenchcoats, boots, bat necklaces). So, it is theoretically possible. But creating 25 different visuals, maintaining some logic and coherency, avoid repetition and not go "shocking for shocking's sake" might turn out to be a creatively daunting task.

Your thoughts on the subject, ladies & gentlemen?  :angel:

Do a goggle search for images of 80's glam and hair metal.
Bands such as Twisted Sister, Motley Crue, Poison, Ratt... And eternals like Kiss, of course!
And not only glam bands. Heavy metal ones sported seriously kitsch looks during the eighties: the first years of Iron Maiden, Helloween or Manowar are a gold mine for over-the-top metalness.

Heck, hadn't  thought about BTTF2!  :blink:



BTTF2 + Grant Morrisson's "Invisibles" + some more outrageous 80s fashion + a dash of 90s Modern Primitives is what I'll be looking for if I go ahead with this!

Thanks for the suggestion but I'm extremely alergic to Glam & Hair Metal...
