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.

Also, post it here in OffTopic, the Board Game thread!

 

(That's probably the only place I'll post it  ::): )

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

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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...

      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.
