MCP – Rocket Racoon & Groot Painting Guide

Let’s take a look at how I painted Rocket and Groot for Marvel Crisis Protocol, starting with the big tree himself.

Both figures were undercoated black before I began.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

MCP – Wakanda Forever!

The first new faction outside of the core box, the Wakandans burst into my MCP collection. Offering another great selection of sculpts, with one particularly annoying to put together.

First up is thier leader, the king of Wakanda himself…

A fairly simple sculpt that does a great job of personifying the Black Panther. It’s the dynamic pose that really makes this one stand out. That balled up energy, ready to pounce look is perfect.

Then we have his chief adversary…

Killmonger is a pretty bland mini to be honest. I love the touch of the panther statue but nothing else really makes him stand out.

Shuri looks great but is by far the most annoying yet to put together, nothing major if you have experience but some fiddly bits, looking at you gloves, are frustrating to say the least.

Another strong mini, but much like Killmonger it’s another that doesn’t stand out.

Saying that though I would like to revisit all of the additional characters to add some free hand. Some traditional African patterning could really add a bit of wow.

MCP – Hulk, Modok & Venom

Onto even more Marvel Crisis Protocol miniatures, and this batch includes some of my favourites!

First up is a truly Incredible miniature…

A truly huge and wonderful Hulk! This guy is awesome and plastic!

I really took my time on this one, as Hulk is one of my favourites, but also it’s a centre peice model. If you include him in your force, he will draw the eye everytime.

And then there is the sinister Venom..

Seriously! Atomic Mass Games is knocking it out the park with these sculpts!

Like many, Venom is a favourite villain of mine and this mini does him justice, and luckily his rules do too.

And finally…

A big floating head! Honestly, I dont know all that much about M.O.D.O.K, and he feels a bit over the top. Although I did still love painting him and he has become a firm favourite when playing the game.

All in all a great batch of miniatures, and it has to be said some of the best plastic kits in the market outside GW for quality and dynamic poses.

MCP – Thor Painting Guide

Whilst working on my figures for MCP I’ve also been putting together painting guides for each of them. It may take a bit of time to work through them all, but here’s the first for Thor, Prince of Asgard…

It’s important to note that I started with a black undercoat spray before painting.

I would love to hear what you think, as it’s a work in progress with each one, the more feedback the better.
