Two (face) sleeps until Salute!

So, finished this guy:

A repainted Heroclix Two Face. I've always liked Two Face, whether it was as Harvey Dent in the Long Halloween, to his stint as champion of the people during No Man's Land, and even through his weird attempt to seduce Montoya back to heterosexuality by ruining her life (spoilers for 20 year old comics I guess). There may have been some dorky stories that focused on his obsession with the number two (generally Batman solves the crime by realizing that obviously Two Face is going to try and hit the museum during their display of large golden twos), but there have been a greater number of stories that delve into more interesting aspects of his character (and hey, stories where he's a psychopath deciding whether someone lives or dies with the flip of a coin are fun too!)

Things that are less fun than that though: painting pinstripes on a model where the detail is at times less than defined. Traditionally, the symbolism in Two Face's clothing is fairly heavy handed - dark side of the suit on the bad side, light on the unscarred side, but I flipped tradition, because I thought the pinstripe would look better as the lighter side! The scarred side of his face has come up a little dark in the pictures, but is a little redder in real life - I went for a red raw look, with a burnt and blackened layer over the top - kinda half Arkham City, half Dark Knight.
