Eaglemoss Killer Croc Repaint
Date: Feb 2012, Medium: Eaglemoss lead Killer Croc figurine, Games Workshop paint, Time: About 4 hours
The Eaglemoss Killer Croc is a really lovely fig with so much texture. The factory paintjob is pretty simple and doesn’t do much to bring out all the beautiful detail, so I decided to fix that. You can see the original paintjob here.
All the Eaglemoss superhero figs are made of lead. LEAD! I didn’t even know they made lead figs anymore! Each one comes with like 4 separate warning labels telling you not to eat them.
Since my goal was to bring out all the texture of the miniature, I relied entirely on washes and drybrushing. I’m quite happy with the finished result, but my pathetic photography skills don’t do it justice at all, even with a borrowed camera.
I didn’t use any varnish or sealant because I won’t be handling this mini and it stays in a plastic case. Also the only sealant I own right now is Armory Clear Matte Sealer, which is AWFUL.
This was so much quicker and easier than that McFarlane Psycho Mantis repaint I did a while back. I didn’t realize how much I missed painting minis. I’ve also got an Eaglemoss Larfleeze that still needs a new coat of paint. I’m not sure when I’ll get to working on that one, though.
