Welcome back for another miniature Monday. Today I am showcasing a quick and easy paint job. Spent at best 30 minutes on this and used a lot of contrast paints to get it done. The model itself is a 1985 Games Workshop, Judge Dredd miniature, know as Cube Head. Part of the JD RPG game line, he was number 13 out of 16. My goal for him and a few other models I have is to create some citizen crowds to act as cannon fodder or hindering terrain features. I don't plan on spending much time on these as they are more scene filler than focus, but hopefully fun enough to look at from 3ft.
Here is some background to these unusual citizens of Mega-City One.
The Uglies are citizens who wish to artificially uglify themselves to achieve a unique appearance. Followers use uglification products or body modification to enhance their ugliness or negate their attractiveness.
Otto Sump, a hideously unattractive person, was chosen to tell his pitiful life story on a talk show. He made such an impression on the viewers that he received a huge cash prize. He used his winnings to found a cosmetics company. However, his skewed sense of beauty meant that he made products that made the user ugly. Sump's celebrity, however, made him a fashion plate. His customers sought to emulate his ugliness, making Sump very wealthy.
