Sinthea Schmidt, better known as Sin, is the daughter of Red Skull, and was subjected physical transformation in order to become Red Skull’s heir. Sin is linked with Crossbones in the comics and in MCP. Together with Crossbones and the Serpent Squad, her battles with the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Winter Solider.
Sin’s card is very much linked with Crossbones, with two specific tactics cards specifically working with him.
Pretty simple miniature to put together, only nine parts, including the two wall sections (which strangely included the toes of both boots!). Having the toes attached to the walls makes for a really strong bond for the dynamic pose, but only allows for one pose!
Sin is the second figure from the last box I purchased with Hulk and a departure from GREEN!Aside from skin and weapons, she is basically two colors, Red and Black. I have several shades of red, so boots and bodice got one shade and her hair another.
Black. I’ve tried mixing either blues or browns into black for different shades, but this time I wanted to try something different. I first laid down a light, but bright blue on her leggings and gloves. After giving this paint a day to cure, I put a glaze of black over all the blue. This left me with a faded black “blue jean” look, a very different for black. The rest was fairly simple, in keeping with the comic book style I’m after.
It’s not coming through on the pictures, but her hair is a more pure red than the bodice and boots. I also tried eyes again. I think her sculpt calls out for eyes, but I still can’t get them to look “right”. They ether come out looking like Japanese anime or like I should have just dropped in some shaded ink and moved on. I need to find some old miniatures and just paint eyes.
Still about 2 weeks from having a dedicated space set-up where I can paint and photograph; These cell phone picture with a single overhead and from the right pictures are driving me nuts! In the meantime, all of these miniatures need to get dull-coated for protection from handling. After that time I’ll set-up and retake some pictures that make me feel better about what I publish.
