Something SUPER different.

You nay have realised form the lack of posts that my painting and posting mojo really isn't where it once was. I am still enjoying gaming and honestly I do have some orcs for orctober almost finished but at the moment I am enjoying something completely different with my two boys.  We are all superhero obsessed at the moment so I thought I present to you some of the clix repaints I have been working on.

First up the fantastic four. A nice simple team to get done, with a uniform and no having to choose favourites with uniforms from a common time period like the x-men (there is so much to get wrong with them I may just give up and paint what I like). Any way the fantastic four, not master pieces but fun quick paints for me and the boys:


 I'm pleased with Ben, a big improvement over the original paint though I'm now thinking I should have trimmed away the mould lines on his head. never mind I like him.


 Sue turns invisible. OK not a paint job here, just changed the base but I'm still pleased with the look and the boys think shes great.


 Villains!


 The green goblin is a personal favourite. I have some acrylic rod to make flight stands of various heights but at the moment, with my modelling drills missing I'm using transparent drinking straws. He's on a low one here.


 Spidey  swings down to investigate.


And trails the unsuspecting Green Goblin from up high.


 More villains. Piledriver and Thunderballs faces haven't come out well in the photo here, small faces with very shallow detail. I've since gone back over and really beefed up the shadows and highlights.

  2. They look so good! Your paint job has really captured a comic-book flavour. No wonder you and your boys are having so much fun.

    I've been on a super-hero kick lately, but for me it was with the off-brand card game Sentinels of the Multiverse. (I love SotM -- it's fast to play, you can do it solo, and it has lots of crunchy comic book flavour).

    1. That would be a game to check out then. Me and the boys have been playing Chaos Marauders for our quick card game fix.

  3. These look, erm... SUPER!

    Are you playing straight Heroclix, or MSHRPG or something else entirely? Always thought with all the mutations and tech weapons, Warhammer, RoC, 40k was hackable into a supers game.

    Also don't Heroclix do Turtles ...?

    1. Super system 4th and or Super mission force a very light weight supers game. I have considered 40K too and may end up there for familiarities sake. The big question is, if a regular human is str 3 is str 10 good enough for the Hulk? If yes then no problems.

    2. Oh yes they do turtles but they are currently silly expensive.
