I wanted to start by saying thank you to all of the people that have got in touch to say they appreciate the guides. It makes my day to hear that people are finding them so helpful. Thanks folks.
I’m still working away on guides, with a couple more core set characters coming your way very soon…
These are all painted with a few changes made form the core set characters I’ve done in the past, and the rest of the core set characters may be a while before they’re tackled. I’m working on a few more conversions that are a bit more involved.
I’m also planning on working on filling some of the gaps. There are a few early characters I’ve not covered yet, and I will be going back to cover Hulk, M.O.D.O.K., Venom, Thanos and the Wakandans when I can. They’ll likely be with a twist on the standard colour scheme or some conversions. Let me know in the comments if theres a particularly cool colour scheme/alt costume you want to see.
I do have a bit of a backlog to tackle before any of that though…
The Inhumans are likely next up on the painting table, but then I would like to tackle some of the terrain. I’ve done some of the terrain from the core set before…
These have given me a bit of practice for the rest and I’m looking at putting together a guide for each of these peices of terrain as well.
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.
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.
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.
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…
