MCP – Another Painting Guide Update!

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.

Until next time, have a great one!
