Dragon Tides: Another Bruce Lee figure

Sorry, I've been so inactive here this year; I've been busy with watercolor, getting disciplined to make my move to get published.


Anyway, I bought a second copy of Dragon Tides for extra components. The extra components I don't need are the second set of figures. Still, I will enjoy painting them (and probably selling them later.) Here is my second copy of Bruce. I did the black pants with yellow stripes as per the art in the game. I also took a little extra time with the skin (the previous figure was mostly dry-brushed so I could get them into the game.) I prefer this attempt over my first (and I'll probably sell the first figure.)

Instead of painting a full-color base, I went gray-scale; that should speed things up a little. In fact, I've already painted the bases on all the other figures. The gray bases look a little classier and set of the figure better, I think.

I still have plenty on my table; I've been doing much of it piece-meal: Zombicide Black Plague (still), 40mm Steve Barber Samurai (STILL), some Mercs (still, but easily finished once I get them back to the front of the line), and my Tokaido collector's accessory pack arrived today with the cutest little Japanese characters. Once I can clear some space (and buy some new primer,) I think they will be fun to paint.

  3. It's like a little portrait of the great man himself! Did this base come with the figure, btw? I have a nice press mold I made from a cheap trinket that makes great yin-yang "temple" bases... but how many figures need one of those? :/

  4. The base game comes with Bruce, Brandon, and not-versions of Donnie Yen, Dalph Lundgren, Jet Li, Bolo Yeung, and a couple fighters who are combinations of multiple characters.

    1. Maybe; I have a second set that I started painting but have yet to finish.
      The Bruce in this post is actually one of those figures :)

      If I sell them, I'll post it on the blog.

  7. Hi! Sorry to bother you again. I guess you are busy painting other figures, so I just wanted to ask you if you would be willing to sell the Bruce Lee figure by itself. It´s great!! Best wishes.

    1. Hi, Samux -- no bother.
      I'll be keeping him for a while yet. I want to finish the whole set first before I decide what to do with them.
