MCP – Asgardian Commission

I recently worked on a small commission for the Asgardians for Marvel Crisis Protocol.

It was really nice to jump back to some of the earliest models and have another bash at them. They were to be painted as my guides which gave me a bit of an advantage going in.

I noticed a change to my level of painting from the previous models. Progress is always really nice to see and who knows maybe I’ll give Thor another paint in a year’s time.

MCP – Construction Site Painting Guide Part 3 – Shack

Welcome to my latest painting guide! Today I’m covering the shack from the Construction Site terrain pack.


You can help me do more!

I make these guides for everyone to learn to paint, but they do cost money, time and resources. If you enjoyed this guide, you can donate £1-3 to help me make more!

Donate via Ko-Fi Donate via PayPal


Prep: Fully build the shack and undercoat black.

A note on drybrushing: When covering larger areas, especially on terrain, I prefer to use drybrushing. This technique requires you to add a light amount of paint to the brush and then remove most of it. Lightly brushing over some kitchen roll until only a small amount of chalky paint is left. When brushed over a model this hits the hard edges but can also be used to build up in layers to create a gradation in colour.

A specific drybrush helps greatly, especially on larger models. Something like this or this.

Stage 1

Dawnstone: Apply a basecoat across the shack.

Middle Earth SBG – The White Council Gathers in Full!

The wisest and most powerful of Middle Earth finally come together, ready to battle whatever evil they must!

A final wee push added the last three members to the council, completing the force.

I’ve painted many a Gandalf over the years, but surprisingly never on a horse. I’m happy with how he turned out overall, but wish I’d gone a bit grayer on the cloak as it feels much bluer than it should.

Glamdring was a delight! Every time I paint a Gandalf I always enjoy the sword. I tried to push my NMM on this one and I’m really happy with the result.

The final elf and Lord of the West! I found this a challenge because of the material. Finecast has a lot of problems that I won’t get onto, I will say I’ll avoid working with it if I can.

I decided to play with the colour scheme a little, as most of the force has a darker feel to them. I decided on black and gold for the armour, kind of mix of the elf’s I’d already done, and the red lent itself well accenting that.

The final member and the most recent release, Saruman the White!

A beauty of a sculpt, so much so I had to replace the foot model I’d prepared for the plastic one. The detail disparity between the old foot model and the plastic rider was too great.

He did turn out a bit more cream/bone coloured than white, I was happy with the result. It keeps him in tone with the sombre tone of the rest, and he doesn’t overshadow the brightness of Galadriel.

Take a look at some photos of them all together…
