My goal of doing all seven Sisters of Sigmar for tonight didn't go as planned, but I managed at least to finish three.

No worries, I only just finished painting a model that I had planned in having done several weeks before Halloween

The three sisters look good, and I especially like your smooth paintjob on Black Widow.

Thanks Graven! The very bright and direct light probably helped

Thanks youwashock! He is in the near future, but not necessarily the next project. I have a group shot of my upcoming MCP minis later in this post.

The Mordheim game on Saturday was a blast. My friend made some pics and I will write up a batrep in the next days.

In other news, I finished two more Marvel minis. With Contrast and a bit of brush control those paint up real quick. Nothing for the cabinet, but perfect for gaming. And I'm sorry Graven, I tried to do the black lines on Spider-Man's costume, but caved after the first try

Ok, need to paint the black on his "backspider" better



He was really fun, although I find the rifle lacking. An M16 or something like that would have looked better.



And some easy terrain


Everything painted and built so far


Waiting to be built


And on its way are Hulk, Green Goblin & the Miles Morales/Gwen Stacy pack.

Nice fast paintiobs Viterbi! Looking at Spidey it looks like a nice bit of Nuln oil in the recesses with a fine Brush would do the trick. Paint would be more hassle than it’s worth!

Love that Punisher. Gun is a little iffy, agreed. May as well have an orange tip and some Nerf darts.

Much excitement for Hulk and Gwen.

Thanks gobert! Tried the Nuln Oil, it helped, but it's not as black as I wished it to be. Nevertheless, I'm much happier now

But they were a to get off. I had read somewhere that superglue breaks of easy and nice. Unfortunately my glue hadn't heard of this

Thanks youwashock! That is an apt description with the Nerf gun. But otherwise great sculpt, loved painting that bag.

Thanks Warboss_Waaazag! I really dislike painting terrain, so always looking for an easy way

A bit has happened, I painted Ultron. It did not work out the way I wanted, but seeing as I don't like character or sculpt that much, he is now finished. That leaves only three core set minis. And the Hulk is built, now need to build Goblin, Gwen and Miles and prime them all.



And I bought Mr. Sinister, he was a bargain on Amazon. I should start looking into the rules, now that I have amassed quite the collection

Spidey with gobert's suggestion of Nuln Oil lines



Slow but steady some progress on the Sisters. All basecoats very sloppy atm, but will get better. Next game is on Friday, so that's the goal.



And I still owe you that Mordheim batrep, may get it written up before the next game... maybe

Glad my tip worked. Spidey looks less like he’s wearing pyjamas now! You could always drop another layer of Nuln in the recesses if you want them blacker, or layer a brighter red on the raider areas? What I really want to see is HULK SMASH!

Thanks gobert! I'm to apprehensive for another Nuln oil go and really don't want to layer those small raised areas. Because damnit are they small. I'm already dreading to paint miles, although his suit is kind of inverted. So I only need to paint him black and then all the raised red lines.
Hulk is still on standby, got the putty to close the gaps, but couldn't be bothered

Thanks Graven and will remember the freezing trick!

Thanks youwashock! Glad you like Ultron, really not happy with him, but he'll do. And you're in luck, the rest of the year will see even more MCP, if I keep up the pace.

Thanks Captain Brown!

I finally got the last four Sisters of Sigmar painted up, which concludes painting the warband. Really happy, although the faces are really meh and despite me being not the best painter, I want to blame the sculpts. Looking back at Eowyns face I painted this year, I don't have problems with small faces





I dread painting terrain (nearly as much as vehicles), but work on the apartment building commences. And got some Graffiti, because I also dread freehand





Sorastro has a nice guide to turn an Infinity toy into a statue (https://sorastro.com/2020/09/06/turn-a-disney-infinity-toy-into-a-statue/) and I will do just that with this Iron Man. His pedestal is a flower pot from Ikea which thankfully has a nice concrete look.
Currently on the second layer of bronze and it's starting to look better.



It's not over til the fat lad sings, Wilson will be up next...



...after finishing these two for the painting comp



Added bonus is the Spire Tyrant I will use for Mordheim as a pit fighter mercenary.

Very nice one. How did you feel the apartment went? I didn't enjoy the sanctum build. Just did Fisk, he's great fun. Where did you get the tags from? I do a mix of freehand and printing real ones out and pasting/painting them on.

You’ve been very busy Viterbi since the last time I’ve checked. Really nice work on all these Marvel figs, between you and Graven I’m getting the itch to paint up a few myself. (Must resist).
Looking forward to seeing how those transfers work out on the building, I had no idea those were available.

I found building it quite relaxing, it's very modular and simple. Maybe the Sanctorum uses some other techniques. Tags are from Green Stuff World and Micro Art Studios, bought both at kutami.de, but Wayland or Element might carry them too.

Was quite happy to find, that someone produces them. So much faster than handpainting and of better quality in my case

Managed to finish the Green Goblin too and am nearly done with the apartment rooftop. I'm soso about the glass panes, may try Graven's method of some white streaks, but They'll do for now.

Thanks youwashock! And don't talk about that Billy club. It's not supposed to be glued to the outstretched hand. I had to do it, because the thin line was already broken, when I built the mini. But the repairs worked.

The Marvel Mania continues, my Mat arrived (4x4) and tested my buildings (more from 4ground on the way) and my cars I got so I don't have to paint some



And the statue is done



Miles Morales is a great sculpt, but those red lines are They will work at arm's length, but I won't post closeups No "only" need to get the base done, first layer of blue is down.




And now for something different, my pit fighter for Mordheim. I thought it's a she, but from my photos looks more like a he. Will call shkler Pat the Pit Fighter, works for both genders And I corrected her dark skin behind the ear, didn't realize it until the closeup

You are smashing through the Crisis Protocol figures, I must admit that I know little of the Marvel Universe bar the obvious characters but these are all looking like great fun.

Great to see some more Mordheim from you as well. The fist spike on the pit fighter looks brutal!

Whoever came up with the idea of using the Infinity figures as statues is on to a good thing as well.
