Following on from the Avengers are the sinister Cabal, the villains from the Crisis Protocol core set. Like the heroes before you can find my guide on how to paint these in Tabletop Gaming Magazine, buy your copy here.
Take a closer look at my first five villains below…
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…
Well it’s been a long year and I have been spotty at best with keeping up with this, hence the delay in getting it out there.
I set out to keep track of how many models I paint in a year, not with a specific goal in mind or as a figure to beat, but to just have a look at the numbers. So without further ado my painted figure count for 2018 was…
Not a bad number to be honest, but this year I think I’ll break it down even more. I want to look at how many figures I paint for each game that comes my way, board game, tabletop, or anything else that may happen. This is one ofthe things I’ll be adding to my painting goals for the year, which I’ll talk about soon.
Anyway, enough rambling, here’s the 175 models I painted this year…
Let’s take a peek at the latest article we have completed for issue 14 of Tabletop Gaming Magazine.
This month’s guide covers the villains from Mantic Games Star Saga, a sci-fi dungeon crawler set within the Warpath universe. Covering each of the 5 ‘bosses’ of the story set out within the Eidas Contract, the first mission book of what we hope will be many more. Here’s a look at the 5 big bads:
That’s only 5 out of 35 miniatures for the game, so keep an eye out for future guides for the rest of the miniatures!
I’m a wee bit behind in getting this news out there, but the latest issue of Tabletop Gaming magazine is out now to buy and features my latest painting guide. For this issue I was tasked with painting up the Inventors starter for Wolsung by Micro Art Studios, so make sure you check out the issue to find out everything you need to know about how I painted them up. You can also check out some more images of them below…
Another article I realised I had not shared anything about was a guide I did, again for Tabletop Gaming Magazine, focussing on speed painting a Kings of War Ogre force. You can grab copy of the issue this guide was featured in here.
The guide primarily covers the speed painting of the main bulk of the force, but also goes into a more detailed process on the captain, a process that could easily be replicated across the whole force. This also gives a fantastic example of the two different levels of painting I tend to work towards when doing commissions. The captain shows off the more expensive but detailed approach, where as the rest of the force shows off the cheaper option.
