  1. Season 2 of Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is kind of all over the place, so my posts will be too! First up, Professor Pyg's Gang. They don't have names, as far as I can tell, so I named them myself. The Gang. Unlike most henchmen, these are all unique sculpts. "Bojack Horseman" - The Hawaiian shirt didn't quite come out as I had hoped, the red flowers blended in with the orange shirt, but the yellow really gets the point across so I'm happy. Not sure how I would do it in the future, maybe use a brighter orange? "Nurse Raamsy" "Chicken Kiev" "Raging Bull"
  2. B:GCC - Arkham Asylum expansion of course includes generic asylum patients. Nothing particularly special in this batch other than it marks the last part of Batman: Gotham City Chronicles for wave 1. Here they are, running around like crazy.
  3. BGG: Arkahm Asylum part 2 is the penultimate (love that word) show off topic by me for season 1. I'll still have to do season 2, but they need to be primed and it isn't great priming weather. Plus I think I need a Bat-break. Listed as Jervis Tetch on the box for some reason instead of his nom du guerre, The Mad Hatter. I missed the opportunity to paint him in blue to match the Batman Animated Series, but the green works. His pants in the picture had some sort of excessive design on them and that was a big NO THANK YOU from me. I'm sure he's happy with Alien Goo pants, who wouldn't be. Probably my favorite figure of the group. Professor Pyg was never a villain I liked the one or two times I did see him, but I like how he came out. I'll be honest, I have no idea who Joker (Mr. Joe) is, as I get most of my bat-lore from the shows. Zsasz is another one I never really heard of until later. Joker's goons with guns. A bit brighter than the other Joker's goons, I guess. I kinda screwed up on their mouths, but you won't notice that unless you know what to look for. They had open mouths with teeth showing, but screw that noise.
  4. B:GCC - Arkham Asylum adds some more characters as well as missions in the infamous Arkham Asylum and Joker's Fun House. No real rhyme or reason for the figures that I painted other than their location in the box. Clayface posing as the Joker. I probably could have done a little more with his face. Dr Hugo Strange, not to be confused with Dr. Strange. Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I'm happy with the color on these guys. I wasn't sure how to paint them at first, but these colors work well for insane comic book characters. Joker's gang (with hammers). The mouths did not come out as good for some. I'm ok with that since they are henchmen and crazy. The face paint is likewise pretty "off", but it works given the situation.
  5. B: GCC - T-Rex. Technically this should be "The Wayne Manor Expansion - Part 3", but when you have the option to put a T-Rex in the title, you do it! When you think of Batman, the first thing that comes to mind is "dinosaurs" of course. This is the robot dino that appeared in the Batcave after Bruce turned it into a museum of sorts. It was fun to paint, partially because no color scheme is particularly "wrong". T-Rex. Alfred for scale. Other side. From the front. Ok. I'm just having fun now. ROAR!
  6. B:GCC - Wayne Manor Expansion adds some missions to the game that take place in the Batcave and the Wayne Mansion. For Part 2, I worked on the "superhero" suited figures. Batman's Thrasher suit. Pretty simple but I enjoy how it came out. Batwing (the hero, not the vehicle). Red Robin. Sadly, I broke him (stupid single attachment point) and couldn't quite get him back in the same pose. The Bat Robots. I think they really missed an opportunity here to call them Bat-bots.
  7. B:GCC - Wayne Manor Expansion has a few more missions that take place in Wayne Manor or the Batcave. The "plain clothes" heroes of the set Bruce Wayne suited up in a different way. Alfred, always good to have handy. Barbara Gordon/Oracle. I prefer her as Batgirl but Oracle certainly has merit. Julia Pennyworth, Alfred's daughter. Bats! The first and third from the left are facing away from the camera. Three of the figures have a bat that is missing a wing. I wouldn't have noticed if the fourth didn't obviously have a wing there. I wonder what happened. Did the mold break or what.
  8. B:GCC - Versus Mode gives us three new heroic henchmen to pick from. Unlike the core game, versus mode has two masterminds battling it out against each other. There is still a mission to complete but the setup is much different. Each team typically gets a main character, a side character and some minions. DEVGRU. Apparently they are a real thing that has been comicbook-ified. They remind me a bit of a cyborg cop in the AD Police anime. Heavy Assault GCPD SWAT. Bomb Disposal Drones. I thought I should give them a brighter color scheme since you probably don't want to be near them when they are doing their job. And make them easier to recover if they fail.
  9. B:GCC - Hero Box Leftovers "aaaand DONE!"* The hero box had some police drones I had yet to paint (and they just as often show up as villainous henchmen) and some of the neutral innocent people of Gotham you sometimes need to rescue. *The first wave also had several expansions, so I'll probably tackle them next. Police Drones (with guns!) Bystanders Citizens. I don't know what makes these "citizens" and the bystanders "bystanders", but whatever.
  10. B:GCC - Villain Box Leftovers "Almost Done". We are finished with the mission book!* Two alt sculpts that were not specifically involved in any missions so far, and all the 3D objectives are all that remain in the villain box. The hero box leftovers will be next. *There was one more mission that featured the Batmobile, but I'm not painting that and there was no one else I hadn't painted already. Island of misfit Batman minis. Riddler, with a fantastic pose, I think. At least, one that fits his style. Riddler Year Zero was in a core book mission but not this guy. I wonder why. (Unless I missed him, which could have happened) Killer Croc, with a more animalistic look than his other sculpt. Getting his face in focus was a bit of a pain. Consoles. I wanted to make them that ugly, 1970s green. Not my best paint job but, meh. They are good enough for objectives. Computer Objectives. An unsafe safe surrounded by bombs.
  11. 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)
  12. B:GCC - Mission 21 "A Golden Opportunity" has the heroes catch Deadpool Deathstroke mid-robbery as he attempts to steal a formula for kryptonite locked behind a door. I think my favorite color that I bought from Reaper is their Hazard Yellow. It slots in nicely between yellow and orange and works wonderfully in a lot of different situations. I think it is spot on for Deadpool Deathstroke. Riddler Goons. I like the color scheme, but I debated for a while if I should switch up the colors a little to make them easier to distinguish on the board. In the end, I decided against it in favor of the K.I.S.S. principle. If I play the game enough where it is a problem, I'll be happy. Goons with Sticks Goons with Guns
  13. B:GCC - Mission 22 "Explosive Surprise" has Harley Quinn and her gang prepping some explosive packages to send through the USPS to various locations in Gotham. Apparently postal regulations are looser in the DC Universe. The whole family Harley in one of her newer outfits and her signature POW! hammer. I kinda screwed up her face when I tried to paint on eyebrows. Tried to fix it but no luck. Bud and Lou, a girl's best friend. Harley Quinn's gang.
  14. B:GCC - Mission 20 "Silence" has Hush and Hush (Jason Todd) trying to infect computers while the Bat crew try to destroy the computers. I can't say I know the Hush story line, but I do know that the song for this mission is clearly Deep Purple's "Hush". Spoilers, one of them is Clayface. Honestly, I'm not sure if you are supposed to let the heroes know, but there isn't any notes explaining how to handle the information, and nothing else is hidden so... Hush. Hush. I though I heard her calling my name now She broke my heart but I lover her just the same, now. And for our featured henchmen, we have the Court of Owls. Batman must have the largest rogues gallery of suit wearing villains. Even the sword wielding Court of Owls henchmen are dress in the samurai version of a suit.
  15. B:GCC - Mission 19 "A Bloody Transaction" has Gordon and Bullock trying to rescue some hostages from The Red Hood and his gang. Apparently there are good Red Hoods and bad Red Hoods. This is the bad Red Hood, possibly the Joker, pre-Joker days (spoiler?). Or maybe just some random sucker in a stupid outfit. Who knows. I think their theme song is "Every Girl's Crazy About a Sharp Dressed Man". Penguin's Henchmen. Not a part of the mission, but I had space to paint them. Their nets had me worried, but I like how they came out.
  16. B:GCC - Mission 18 "Bad Time to be a Cop" has Wrath and Solomon Grundy set a trap for the police. The cops have to activate computers to call in reinforcements, and the villains need to destroy those computers. Wrath I know nothing about, really, and most of my Google searches put him in a cartoonish, bright orange outfit. So I suspect this is a newer incarnation of him. Grundy, on the other hand, I've known since the early Super Friends cartoons on Saturday mornings. That, and he had a fantastic storyline in The Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. I decided to work on both versions of the Gotham PD SWAT team at the same time, to keep their coloring the same. Solomon Grundy, Born on a Monday... (ok, I admit I delayed posting this until Monday specifically for that reason) Wrath. Winner of the Deadpool "Maximum Effort" award for this set. I painted him black, and drybrushed him. The GCPD SWAT Assault Team and Bomb Disposal Team
  17. B:GCC - Mission 17 "Caught in a Spyral" has our hero, played by Green Arrow, trying to stop a hack by Tusk that may reveal some undercover officers. Man-Bat also shows up to smack people around. Green Arrow. Probably the only non-Batman related hero in the set. And probably the last hero I'll be doing for a while. I missed my opportunity on one, and the other one won't show up until the last mission. Tusk. Not a villain I'm familiar with. He has a white suit for his picture, but I wanted to do something a bit different, so I gave him some Miami Vice colors. Plus, he had something nice to wear for Easter. Man-Bat! How can I not love him. He was the first villain in the Batman: The Animated Series. A bit of a pain to paint because of the wings, but otherwise was a lot of fun. Guards, because even good guys need henchmen occasionally. Though they show up as villains often enough.
  18. B:GCC - Mission 16 "Like Father, Like Daughter". Orphan tries to stop Scarecrow from helping Orphan spread weird toxins/chemicals throughout Gotham. It makes me wonder who the heck comes up with superhero names in DC, and why someone would go by Orphan if her dad is still alive. Anywho... I stopped painting for a bit due to lots of unrelated things (like Borderlands 3 coming out for Steam). Now that I'm working from home, I can get back to painting regularly. And B:GCC Season 2 just arrived so my dream of painting Season 1 before that showed up did not pan out. Father, Daughter, and Scarecrow Orphan (Cassandra Cain). Not someone I know much about as far as Batman lore goes, but seems interesting. Not sure how she's an orphan if her dad is still alive... Painting her was a bit tough, as some of her details were pretty small. Orphan (David Cain). Another person I'm not too familiar with. And I hate painting white so...not a fan of how he came out. Scarecrow. I LOVE how he came out. One of my favorites of this series so far. He looks so pale and weather beaten. Mr Bloom's Gang. Unrelated to the story, but I need to speed up my painting game, so I'm adding one henchman/police group each time, even if they aren't involved in the story.
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
  21. 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...
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
