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.

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.
