This is Golden Guardian, a brand new superheroes. Actually she is the fourth hero to assume that heroic identity, with the first being Buck Brand, in the 1940's. The current Golden Guardian is Brand's granddaughter, and he personally handed over the Guardian Power Gauntlets along with the mantle of responsibility. Her retro styling cape and buccaneer boots are in tribute to her father, the second Golden Guardian, who was active in the 1970's and who disappeared when she was just a child.

This mini is a superfigs 'Shield Maiden', minus the shield (which I used on another mini). Once more I am indebted to Leon for supplying me this mini form his massive stockpile of unpainted lead. Thanks Leon!

I was hoping to upload a picture of the latest superhero in my collection, but alas I broke my USB cable, and have had to order a new one, but then I realised that I haven't yet posted a picture of the finished super I showed earlier as a WIP.

This bad-boy is Incinerator, part time pyromaniac, part time lunatic and full time Vigilante. In his own mind he is the ultimate superhero, it's just that the media, police and society in general don't see it like that.

This is a slightly converted Heresy figure. Basically I rebuilt his hand and added the flames (the original is holding a coffee cup- oddly). I enjoyed painting this mini, with a very tight pallet of colours and directional lighting form the flames- I am delighted with the results. I will post the new pics as soon as the USB cable arrives.
