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

Welcome to my latest painting guide!

I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!

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.

MCP – Heroes of the Core Set

My first foray into Marvel Crisis Protocol is painting the core set for Tabletop Gaming magazine. Split over 2 guides the first covers the heroes half of the set. You can buy the first guide here.

I really enjoyed painting these, as the larger scale(approx. 40mm) gives much more area than usual and this combined with some pretty impressive sculpts provides some awesome minis to paint.

I’ve also been really enjoying playing the game. It’s a great skirmish system with the added advantage that there are no real restrictions on who you use. Sure there are leadership abilities for building around a team, but you really can use whoever you want in your squad. I’ll be writing more in the future once I’ve had a chance to collect my thoughts a bit more.

Here’s my first five and the start of my Avengers…
