Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Mission 1


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

Catwoman (Classic).  I'm not super happy with how the eyes turned out but it looks good enough on a table so...

Smart move. Post a session report on BGG and let us know what you think of the game!

 

Getting the game to the table may be tough, but I'll post something once I get a game or two in.

That's a good idea.  I just might end up borrowing it...

      For the very last Batman: Gotham City Chronicles post I'll make, here are the Gang of Robin.  I couldn't find any comic book references to these guys specifically, so they are probably just designed for the game to help balance out the number of henchmen the heroes have access to. 
       
      Gang of Robin(s?) - 
       
        
       
      Not the flashiest way to end, but breaking these figures up into smaller groups helped me manage this project.  AND I was able to finish before IDW's Batman game was delivered (thanks in part to art problems on their end).  
       
      Fun timeline facts -

      May 2020 - Finished the core box
      August 2020 - Finished all of season 1

      For my penultimate post on B:GCC, I am finishing up the Batman Inc box, featuring Batmen from around the world.
       
      The crew part 2 - 

       
      El Gaucho - Batman of Argentina and other parts of South America.
         
       
      Batman of Japan - Apparently they take a different approach to being subtle in Japan.    
       
       
      Night Runner - Parkour master and Batman of Paris.  He has a fun and unique pose, but it did throw off my normal painting order.  I mean, I paint the head first, but I also do top down so...what to do?!?!?
          
       
      Batman of Moscow - He looks like he's trying to out Batman Batman.  PITA to paint and there is probably a lot of unpainted surfaces behind that cape.  Thankfully no one will ever see them.

      The third and final big box from Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is full of Batmen from various countries.  Apparently Bruce Wane decided to franchise superheroing like a McDonalds.  
       
      The crew, part 1 - 

       
      Dark Ranger is the Australian "Batman".  He dresses in white, uses guns and flies around on a jetpack.  Just like Batman...yeah I don't get it.  
         
       
      Knight, Batman of England.  
         
       
      Chief Man-of-Bats, of the Dakota territories.  I tried to get his eyes white but it never looked good, so I wound up going black.
          
       
      Raven Red, the Chief's son and sidekick.  His eyes came out much better than his dad's.

      Running out of "fun" groups of mini's to paint in Batman, these are pretty generic angry dogs.  I'm not a big fan of the pose.

      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.
