I thought the Colossus figure would make a great Sinister, the original plan was just to do a basic repaint with minimal sculpting seeing as how the characters costumes aren't a million miles apart; but then i thought if I'm going to do the figure properly I might as well make it as comic accurate as possible - famous last words! Removed the tunic then loads of sanding down of the lower torso, belt and hands, then even more sculpting - the top of the boots, wrists, shoulders and the torso to try and match the metallic bands/grooves (don't know the best way to describe Colossus' metallic form lol).
I used Citadel paints to to paint the figure, blood red and a mixture of chaos black and regal blue with some silver mixed into that mixture for the metallic parts.
The cape was simply made from card and painted with the same colours. I originally intended to use some thin plastic but the paint didn't stick very well to it and the card is stiffer so it was much easier to bend into the correct shape.
This figure took so much work but I'm really happy with the result, he looks huge and imposing just how he should be IMO. Look forward to hearing your comments!
