  1. B:GCC - Mission 14 "Biological Scourge" teams up the noble Ra's Al Ghul with the sewer dwelling Ratcatcher. Really? Anyway, the heroes have to beat up the bad guys to get the antidote and also kill a bunch of rats. Unfortunately I put this group off and when I got back to it, I glossed them before I took their picture, so sorry about the shine. Ra's slumming it with his new pal. Ra's cape (at least the interior) was not fun to paint. I do like him as a villain though. Having David Warner's voice in the Batman Animated Series did not hurt. Ratcatcher. Fun fact, he's listed as Rat Master on some parts of the game. Monolith really needs better QC. Thugs with Guns! Henchmen gotta hench.
  2. B:GCC - Mission 15 "Panic at the Court" asks the heroes to hack a server and defuse bombs while keeping the immortal (?) Talon and his Court of Owls at bay. Talon and the prisoner henchmen Talon is...boring. He's all black and grey, with a tiny bit of color in his eyes. I wound up using Ram Black to give a little color to his gloves and leather bits. The prisoners are colorful though!
  3. B:GCC - Mission 13 "Suicide Escape" has two traditional Suicide Squad members attempting to flee prison. Kind of an interesting mission where the villains are passive until they aren't. They are basically meandering around the jail until they decide to pull the trigger and attack. Croc's left eye was not as well defined as his right, it was pretty annoying. He still came out pretty well though. I tried to make his trench-coat extra dirty. I had a tough time with Deadpool Deadshot because his color scheme is kind of all over the place. Or maybe better put, his outfits are all over the place, as he tends to have the same colors, just in different locations. And finding this outfit was nigh impossible. Still, I really like how he came out. His color scheme is very bright and really pops, especially when next to the drab, earthy Killer Croc. Not quite enough room for a full family photo this time, so the minions get put the the bottom. I'm not saying the color scheme is based off a football team near me, but I'm not saying its not...
  4. B:GCC - Mission 12 "The Purge" has you trying to stop Two-Face from some nefarious deed that involves you purging some vats before time is up. And we are halfway through! Not as far as miniatures are concerned, but the core book has 24 missions so we have reached the middle. Most bad guys are not reused, but lots of heroes are, so I have very few heroes left to paint but still a box load of villains. And, of course, henchmen (and the heroic counterpart). (Sorry for the double post but I got a new computer and spent waaay too much time playing on it instead of setting it up to post pictures of stuff. ) I think I need to find a better technique to keep the whites bright and yet still get the shadows painted. Since I had no new heroes to paint, I am working my way through henchmen. Painting the Thugs with Guns to finish off my thug list.
  5. B:GCC - Mission 11 "Major Gas Madness" has Scarecrow as the major villain to beat. You need to find his toxin formula and escape before you croak. There is a lot of deadly gas about (surprise) so you need to be careful. There were no new heroes to paint in this mission, so I painted up a set of thugs instead. Scarecrow and Hazmat Thugs Not the Scarecrow I'm familiar with, but a cool one nonetheless. Fairly easy to paint, although sometimes the paint seemed to not want to stick to some difficult to reach areas. I thought Hazmat Thugs would be a nice combo to paint up with Scarecrow. I was debating on what to do with the area of plastic between the strap and the gun. Do I paint it black? Or light blue? or white? Or yellow? In the end I decided that these guys were minions so who cares. Black was the least amount of work and looks good enough for what they are on the table for.
  6. B:GCC - Mission 10 "The Postman Always Rings Twice" pits our heroes vs Firefly and Killer Moth. The heroes need to examine the poison and find an antidote for it, but the laboratory is extremely deadly to anyone without a gas mask. Thankfully one is provided. Ok, I'm back from work travels, lets finish up some minis! Batwoman has a great color scheme, but enough with the unbalancing capes already! I like how Azrael's sword came out. I kind of gave up on it but after giving it a red wash it looked much better. I can't say I enjoyed painting his cape either. Between his arms and his cape, there was a lot of blocked plastic. I like Firefly for a number of reasons and I enjoyed painting him. I attempted to get some color in the smoke but I gave up. There's some orange in there but that's about it. Finally, someone who's not red. Killer Moth is typically a gag villain but I guess they made him serious business at some point. I actually kind of like his outfit and while his front logo of a x-shaped teal design over a white-ish design wasn't perfect, I'm glad I tried it.
  7. B:GCC - Mission 9 "A Sad Celebration" has the Joker and Harley Quinn (and minions) lowering some sap into a vat while Batman and friends attempts to stop him. Since I already painted Harley Quinn, I only had the Joker to paint, and he's pretty straightforward. I messed up his lips a little bit but, honestly, he's got a messy look sometimes anyway so I mostly left it in place. Its hard to tell from the tabletop anyway. Katana was also pretty easy to paint, and looked really good in pure white and black. Spoiler I never heard of and her cape makes her a bit unbalanced, but she looks fun to play. I do love the Joker's pose, with the pistol held carelessly and the knife gripped tight, ready to strike. Spoiler: NO CAPES! I must admit, I like Katana's pose and color scheme.
  8. B:GCC - Mission 8 "Deadly Riddles" has the Riddler facing off against the Bat Team, in this case Duke Thomas aka The Signal because...they were running out of names I guess. I stopped reading well before he showed up, but he has an interesting outfit if you ignore the fact that it is bright yellow. I also painted off a set of generic thugs. Getting them out of the way one set at a time. Duke "The Signal" Thomas The Riddler, Year Zero version. Snappy dresser. Some thugs.
  9. B:GCC - Mission 6 "Good Cops/Bad Cops" has the GCPD up against Clayface and Black Mask, trying to get evidence on corrupt cops. You can actually select from a number of heroes for the first hero, but since the second and third heroes must be Detective Renee Montoya and Detective Bullock, I felt it was only fair to paint Commissioner Gordon with them. Get all the big cops out of the way. The heroes have to grab some evidence while the villains try to destroy it. One of the balancing mechanisms to put Gordon, Montoya and Bullock on the same level with Batman friends is that they get to control generic cops. Its a neat idea though I haven't tried it out yet. Clayface was super easy, though he came out a bit darker than I really wanted. I was shooting for a lighter brown and now he looks like a very menacing piece of chocolate. Still, I was happy to paint him after the more difficult batch I just finished. Black Mask was also super simple. Nothing fancy here. I'm not 100% satisfied with his eyes, but they work well enough. Gordon was sporting sunglasses for the longest time. I'm happy how his glasses turned out and look like regular glasses now. Detective Bullock. Detective Montoya, one of the original creations from the Animated Series. I'm actually happy how her jacket came out. I used walnut brown to get it dark, but not the same dark as her noir black hair. It gives it a nice leather jacket look.
  10. Mission 4 "An Icy Welcome" is the first strictly two player map, and it stars my favorite Batman villain, Mr. Freeze. Only two miniatures and I actually finished theses a bit ago, but never put them up because things have gotten a bit busy (in a good way). I was even able to get in some games of Batman! I'm not too familiar with Batman Year Zero (or Batman Zero Year or something), I can't understand how the gloves go with the rest of his outfit. I used my favorite MSP Sample (pinkish/purplish) paint for both figures. It is such a great color. And a crossbow! When does Batman use a crossbow? My favorite Batman enemy since (and because of) Batman: The Animated Series, Mr. Freeze's B:TAS design comes from Mike Mignola, Hellboy creator, and you can tell. The more recent designs don't stray too far. I'm not happy with the gun, but the rest of his body painted up nicely with just a little drybrush work. Super simple.
  11. Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Mission 3 "A Series of Mutations" has another villain I've never heard of, Mr. Bloom, turning thugs into plant people. For Frank Miller's Batman, I went with a lighter shade of blue. The pictures I found were ether black or a brighter than usual blue, so I stuck with the blues. He also came with two bases. I was hesitant about painting the "diorama" base just because it was so different than the rest of the bases but it came out a lot better than I was expecting. When he hits the board I hope we use that base. Nightwing and Bluebird were a good choice to do together, I basically used the same palate for both of them and there wasn't a lot of different colors. I don't know who Bluebird is, but her outfit is pretty sweet. Mr Bloom wore a bit darker cloths in the comics, so I used dark green to give him a little color and stay with the plant theme. I played around with his base and I'm not sure I like it, but I definitely don't hate it, so I kept it. Maybe it will grow on me...
  12. Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Mission 2 "Deadly Infection" has the Penguin and Doctor Death trying to do something evil while some version of Batman and two of his allies try to stop them. I'm not terribly familiar with Doctor Death, and I couldn't find too many good pictures of him online, so I just went with a zombie-ish look. The Penguin was also a little tricky, but for the opposite reason. He has been around for a while and has a slew of looks. Although I was planning on sticking to the Batman Animated Series as a baseline, I found the color scheme for the Penguin there a bit bland. Other versions of the Penguin have a lot more purple, so used purple for his pants, tie and hatband. And I figured if the Penguin wold wear purple, it would be Imperial Purple, of course. I didn't have much luck with his monocle, but its good enough for tabletop. Out of the available heroes, I painted Batman Year 100 and the two Robins. I'm not too familiar with Batman Year 100 either, but he seems a bit like a vampire, so I went in that direction with very little color. I took the Robins looks from the Batman Animated Series, pretty much. The Damian Wayne look with the yellow down the front I was particularly happy with. He should have more yellow outlining, but I decided to stop before I ruined it. And apologies again for the glare. I glossed these minis up before I decided to photograph them all. The next set will be better, I swear! Batman Year 100, aka Vampire Batman Robin (Tim Drake) Robin (Damian Wayne) Doctor Death (I presume) The Penguin. He was actually a bit more fun to paint than I anticipated.
  13. 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.
