Since I thought the Movie Hulk toy was a pretty good figure I decided what the world needed was a Gray Movie Hulk! But why gray? Well the Hulk was originally gray when he was created. Also, the Ultimate version of Hulk is gray. And let's face it, he always looks cool in gray. And for some reason I always think of gray hulk in purple shorts, rather than blue. Either way, he was fun to paint.

- Games Workshop Citadel Warlock Purple
Hulk was first airbrushed a basecoat of Euro I Gray. I then heavily drybrushed Gray over this, then lightly drybrushed Light Gray over that. This gave him 3 nice tones, but I wasn't finished. I then airbrushed Smoke (clear gray) over him, which balanced the 3 different grays and made the difference in tone subtle. I then went back and drybrushed Euro I Gray over large areas to further even his skin out. The result is very subtle layers of shadow to his muscles. His pants are Warlock Purple with Napoleonic Violet drybrushed for detail. His fingernails and toenails are Light Gray. Whew that's a lot of gray! Finally, his eyes and teeth were totally repainted. Also, his metal beam was basecoated Black then drybrushed Chrome Silver for wicked effect.
