Color Guide: Comic Style Taskmaster

This Color Guide is for Taskmaster Comic Style for Marvel Crisis Protocol.

This color scheme is based off a more classic Taskmaster style. Taskmaster has not had many costume changes throughout his history. Probably the biggest decision I have had to make was the color of the inside of his cape, white or orange. The model has many great details and is in a dynamic pose. I also love the variations of colors that are all contained on this model, from very dark blues, mid tone oranges, to white.

The miniature was painted with his cape attached. I found that there was enough room to base coat his back and pick out a little detail on the inside of the cape. However if you plan to do a high level of painting on the inside of his cape near his back you may want to keep that part separate.

Color Guide Purpose: To give painters a lists of paints that can be used to achieve a specific look on their miniatures.  The actual techniques I use can me modified based on the painters skill and desired effect. The hope is to save hobbyist time by providing examples of paint combinations they can use, eliminating the trial and error of finding the correct colors.
