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 2019 - Started Batman: Gotham City Chronicles
May 2020 - Finished the core box
August 2020 - Finished all of season 1
March 2021 - Finished season 2
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.
I love a sculpt in the the Early Modern era English Civil War/New-England Canaan/Solomon Kane style every bit as much as I would hate living in Puritan Salem (which is to say, a lot). This buckle-hatted rat catcher from Midlam is just perfect for the Early Modern Monster Hunters series I have going on. Clad in rust, mahogany, and maroon, "sadd colors" as was the fashion. (The Puritans mostly didn't wear black, not because it was somber, but because it was too fancy. Of course.)
With net, traps, staff, and rat mallet, he is ready for any ordinary rat the city can dish up.
But of course, we don't deal with ordinary rats here, do we?
A consultation with a well-traveled colleague returned from the New World is in order. We've seen Boren Backslap here before.
"Aye, on two legs, and wearin' clothes? 'Tweren't a dream, lad. You've much to learn and not much time to do it. Best we set an ambuscade this very night. Where there's one, there'll be more, sure as Judgment."
(The orb-wielding albino is a Ver'Men mage from Black Tree).
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.
