I really enjoyed Kick Ass, and I converted these figures for a bit of fun.

Hit Girl is based on a Eureka Kung Fu Schoolgirl, with a spare sword from a LotR Orc. The outfit isn't exact, but I think I've got the 'vibe' down OK. I used a different undercoat, which unfortunately turned out rather gritty. I struggled with the hair, I think it needed a little more red. It would have been nice to add a yellow grenade and some pink pouches, but the yellow neckerchief will have to do. I didn't sculpt the mask, I just painted it on.
Big Daddy comes from the 'Batman Begins: Shadow Assault' boardgame, which I picked up on clearance at a toy store a few years ago for $9.99. It also comes with 20 clear plastic ninjas. I threw everything else away.
|Zok! Bap! Kapow!
I used some guns from Reaper. I like the wooden stock on the sawn-off shotgun, it really helps that jarring 'Batman using guns? WTF already?' effect. It looks like he's about to shoot his foot, but he isn't! I'm not really happy with the angle of the revolver hand, it looks uncomfortable. I did the classic Batman white eyes, and left the ears on. The yellow helps tie the two figures together, but again, it would have been nice to add a grenade to his belt. I left this figure on the integral base it comes with, which is a tad smaller than 25mm. It would not have been worth the effort to do it properly.
And here's Big Daddy's best fight scene:
Finally, because I don't know where else on this blog I'd put them, are the ninjas from the boardgame. Quickest. Paintjob. Ever.
