An Unexpected Absence!

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve popped anything on the site and for that I apologise. It’s mostly been real life getting in the way, with me having to stay at the in-laws for a month while the family and I sort out a new place to live taking a lot of my enthusiasm away from the painting, whilst the actual hassle of moving and unpacking took away an time I have had in the last few weeks. Honestly though the biggest thing eating my time and passion for painting has been this….

Batman-Arkham-Knight-Logo-Wallpaper-HD-8

I just couldn’t put it down, not even for a paint brush. Not even to paint Batman figures. I’m not even sorry. It is awesome.

Luckily Knight models have started releasing some figures from the game that fit perfectly with what I was doing before my break, and I have these on their way to me…

These will definitely get me away from my console and sitting at the painting table 🙂

I also had some very welcome news about getting some of my painting published, which I’ll give you all the details on next time…

Knight Models – Batman Crews!

I’ve painted a fair bit for the forces of good in the Batman Miniature Game now and wanted to show off some of the Crews I have put together.

First up the Bat Family…

Bat-Family

and the GCPD…

Gotham-Cops-GroupThese two aren’t crews in their own rights, although the GCPD group could be. The plan was to make up a couple of crews from these two pools. Her’s what I came up with…

Crew-1

The first is a nice and simple Batman & Robin based crew, with as much GCPD back up as I could fit in and, because I adore the mini, Alfred is there to keep an eye on master Bruce.

The second crew I put together looks like this…

Crew-2

This one is based around the Robins; Nightwing, Red Hood and, well, Robin with some GCPD back up and again Alfred keeping an eye on things.

Both of these are standard tournament sized crews (350rep) as I like to make sure that’s what I’ve got to play with once I eventually get to playing the game. Although the first few times will be with a little bit less than this.

Knight Models – Batman & Robin!

My plan for the Knight Models range was to get and paint up the Bat family and what better place to start than the dynamic duo themselves; Batman & Robin…

Batman-&-Robin

Batman-1 Batman-2 Robin-1 Robin-2

I loved painting these up, absolutely loved it 😀

The detail on the models is clean and crisp, something I’ve always loved about metal models. As I’ve said before the scale is glorious, especially considering the little detail of Batman being taller than Robin, something you often don’t see with model ranges. My only complaint was Batmans ears, which seemed a little shorter than they should be, and one looking a little malformed. Only a small problem though 🙂

Next up, Batgirl or Nightwing?
