Tweak Off.....

Hi all

erm.....sorry about the title of the post.... I blame Dave Stone, after all my suggestion was simply that we should compare the various paint jobs of Tweak, a character from the pages of 2000AD, by Simon (Blaxcleric), Bryan (Vampifan), myself and Dave - who sculpted the figure.  Dave was kind enough to gift each of us with a copy of the enigmatic Tweak, who joined Judge Dredd in his trek across the Cursed Earth.  I did have a load of blurb prepared from Wikipedia but Bryan beat me to the punch so here's a link to his excellent article instead here.

So it was my idea to compare each of our paint jobs of the same sculpt for fun, Dave named it a "Tweak off!"  Bryan has displayed his version and Dave's as Dave doesn't have a blog and you can find a link ***

Anyway here's my version.

I went with a Vallejo Saddle brown for the main body and mixed it with some GW Emperor's Children pink for his snout and hands, washed in Army Painter Strong tone and finished with yellow claws.





I have got another Dave Stone special to show but he'll have to stay under wraps until I finish him off.

hope you enjoy

  3. Nice. The joy of comparing the different styles of you and Simon. One of the best things about reading blogs is how you become familiar with different peoples styles.

    1. Definitely Martin, you can recognise a blogger by their paint style, basing technique etc

  8. Excellent stuff, Andy. Its incredible how differently we've all interpreted the same character from a comic book. Looking forward to the next 'Tweak Off' ;-)

  9. I do recall the 2000Ad character but he was never a character I liked.
    But the pint job has come out very well and he does look very good.

    1. Thanks Clint, I think Tweak is a bit marmite. Some people love him, others don't, but Dave's miniature is cracking anyway!

  11. Sadly, I have no prior knowledge of Tweak or his exploits. I do like what you've done with the miniature. Great job.
