Another team completed! Well, at least until Angela is released.
This was a really cool batch to paint, with a fairly diverse line up of characters. That’s what I love about painting Crisis protocol, every model is unique and a new challenge.
Find out how I painted them with the links below…
Groot & Rocket
Nebula & Gamora
Had a blast stepping back into Underworlds to paint the amazing Ylthari’s Guardians.
It might only be 4 models but boy are they characterful. Par for the course with the underworld range, it still surprises me how individual each model feels whilst still being strongly cohesive with the rest of the team. I really want to paint some more! For now take a look at the models below…
Jumping into the painting guides for the Guardians of the Galaxy, we start of with thier leader, Starlord.
I began with a black undercoat.
As usual I would love to hear what you think, leave me a comment and let me know what you liked and what could be improved.
Following on from Thor, I paint his companion from the box, the mighty Valkyrie.
I’ve slightly altered the layout to give a bit more room for manoeuvre. As always I would love to hear what you think.
Prep: Black undercoat
Next up are the sinister Hela and the god of mischief himself, Loki…
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.
