Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for Flash Gordon. I love the old serials (three of them), the old comics, and I can even tolerate that campy 1970s movie. So, when the Savage Worlds Flash Gordon Kickstarter occurred, I jumped on the bandwagon to get the figures. I have just about every other manufacturer’s Flash Gordon figures, but you can never had too many Flash Gordon figures — at least that’s what I tell my wife.
Since I have been home this week (first of several), I have been getting some painting done in the evenings. Last night I finished the Flash Gordon figures from the Kickstarter.
I painted these figures in comic book colors. The figures have nice animation and styling that is consistent with the Alex Raymond drawings.
The space ship in the background was made from a Denny’s happy meal sip cup.
All of the figures were fun and easy to paint.
And for some reason when I pulled these figures out of the to-be-painted box, I also pulled this Superman figure. I don’t know where it came from or who was the manufacturer, but I painted it up anyway. I don’t even play superhero games; although, To Be Continued… by GASLIGHT has rules for Pulp-era superheroes. Does anyone know who made this figure?
