first thing I did was remove all the Crimson Fist iconography.
Most of it was in areas too small for a Dremel or even a
file... which meant shaving it all down with an exacto knife.
After that was done, I cut the right foot away from the
tab that fits into the base and raised it a bit. I wedged
a piece of slate under his foot and textured the base.
I swapped out the metal sculpted banner for a plastic one
from a marine kit. I'll freehand paint the back banner.
At this point, the model is ready for primer.
