So close to finishing off Season 2! This is the final batch of individually packaged minis, including a few alternate versions of characters and somebody who's Nobody. Nobody. What is the difference between a villain and a super villain? Presentation! Nobody lacks that presentation. Though I guess if your angle is an invisibility suit, you don't want to be flashy. Catwoman (from Hush, I think). This is the third version of her, but the only version that can play for the bad guys. Mr. Freeze, my favorite Bat villain. This time with a helmet, which is both cool and annoying at the same time.
B:GCC - Mission 23 "A COWardly Act". Catwoman's cats have been poisoned by poison milk. The Bat Team has gone in to investigate, but hasn't returned! It is now up to Batcow to rescue the Bat Team from the clutches of Poison Ivy. I...don't get Batcow. I mean, I understand that comic books have to comic, but why include him in an otherwise serious game? He doesn't really fit the tone of this game system. The Dynamic Duo Catwoman with her Long Halloween outfit. She is not actually in this mission, but she is the person giving the introduction, and I hadn't painted her yet. Batcow. The heroine of our story. Admittedly you can have a lot of fun with Batcow and she was an easy paint. I mean, you can't really screw up a cow, no matter what you do. Mother's Day Flowers! (also Poison Ivy's deadly henchmen)
Monolith Games "Batman: Gotham City Chronicles" came in recently and I decided I'd go ahead and actually try to paint all the minis. Looking at the boxes can be daunting though so I'm breaking it down by mission to make it a less daunting task. For each mission, I'm doing the main villains and one hero for each player, so the game is at least playable with a set of painted minis. The minions will have to wait until my free time matches up with the not raining time so I can spray prime a bunch at once. Did I mention it won't stop raining on my time off? In general, I'm trying to get as accurate as I can with the paints and paining skill I have to the Batman: The Animated Series version of the characters. That is the version I love the best so that's where most of my inspiration comes from. The first mission, "To Sink a City", pits Bane vs our heroes. From the hero selection, I grabbed "standard" Batman (because, of course), "standard" Catwoman and The Red Hood (Jason Todd...spoiler?). I did these a week or so ago and I put gloss finish on them without thinking of taking pictures first, so sorry about the glare. I do plan on giving them a matte finish when I'm done with all the minis. Group picture! Batman! I used a lot of Nightmare Black since it has a blue tint. Breonne Blue quickly became my go to blue for team Batman and Rainy Grey makes a good suit color. The Red Hood (Jason Todd) Catwoman (Classic). I'm not super happy with how the eyes turned out but it looks good enough on a table so... Bane and juiced up Bane.
This is a catgirl pirate ( "Nyamaunir-Piratin"), figure #15503C from Das Schwarze Auge, produced under license by Ral Partha Europe (which is not Ral Partha). Got that? She is a wee bit on the small side. Here from left to right are a cat person (Khaliman) from the French "Alkemy" game, our little kee kat pirate, Reaper's 77340: Avatar of Sekhmet, and Reaper's 03478: Tawny Firehair, Cat Girl. Here she is up close. She has some nice details and a more fuzzy appearance than most of the cat people minis I've seen. This is my standard priming: A thinned coat of Titanium White allowed to dry for a full day, then a wash with thinned Burnt Umber. It's related to Renaissance painting techniques and I find it gives a good warm foundation to start from. I was painting her at the same time as some wolves, for economy of paint. I figure I'm going to paint her like a grey cat. The first coat of paint is a light grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, lightened a good deal with white. Here's a back view: It may be noticed I'm a little casual how I apply my paint. There are bits not covered and the paint has been thinned down and it isn't always the same opacity because of that and the under-brown shows through. I mixed a slightly more translucent, darker version of the same grey and added some more. Then I took some matte pure Carbon Black and indicated in her eyes, nose, mouth, and claws. I put an undercoat of black on her sabers as long as I was at it, since I find it looks very good under silver. Tune in later to find out what's next ...
