Killer Frost

This version of Killer Frost is based on her incarnation in the Injustice video game, and while a cool-looking mini (no apologies for that pun!), it was a pain in parts to paint, which slowed me down, and was the reason why I picked up Swamp Thing, Alfred and Scarecrow as 'quick wins' - all were started after Killer Frost!

The mini's arm positions made it really awkward, which was compounded with some poor colour choices in places, which makes the final mini a little rougher than I like, but it is another mini down which is the most important thing. The arms were a pain to get into position, with very fine contact points and no obvious way of pinning as they joined at a right angle to wrist and bicep.

Killer Frost can be used in pretty much all villainous crews as a Free Agent, becoming a Sidekick in Mr. Freeze crews, which seems more about cold theme than how either character is consistently shown in the comics. She can also be used in a Suicide Squad team alongside the likes of Deadshot and Riddler - so I may have to look at building up a few more members for that option before too long.

In game terms she looks reasonably durable for an End 6 character thanks to Acrobat, Adaptable, Resilient and Runaway. On top of that she brings a low threat shooting attack and Stop, on top of unarmed attacks doing 1 Blood. So definitely some useful stuff, but not top-tier by any stretch.

    1. Thanks very much for the very kind words Michael. :)

      I will disclose that the eyes took a couple of attempts to get right. :)

  3. Hmmm... I'm glad the "Heroclix" version I'm currently painting up is in her ice form. I'd hate to be compared against the subtle brushwork of this piece, PulpCitizen. Tremendous work, my friend. She looks awesome imho.
