Thanks youwashock! It's nearly the weapons on him (I finally gendered the pit fighter Captain Brown seems to see it that way too), that are in the book, if we assume that mace is in fact an extractable morningstar Sadly it looks like we won't be playing this year anymore, but you'll never know.

Thanks Captain Brown, it's now Pat the male pit fighter

Thanks Graven!

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.


Thanks ListenToMeWarriors! Painting the Marvel figs is mostly really relaxing. Contrast and maybe an edge highlight works well on them and because they all are different it doesn't get stale.

In the book he has a spiked gauntlet that also let's him parry. So works quite well modeling-wise.

The problem was to get Infinity figures, they are mostly sold off everywhere. Snatched a 3-pack for 10€ and gave Black Widow and Thor to my kids for playing. Because of the Lego Shorts they know and love all the Avengers

Thanks gobert! They are model cars, I would not in a million years have the motivation to paint so many

Thanks monkeytroll and good to read you again!

No real progress, but built the last Marvel minis and primed them (before the first frost tonight, talk about timing) and will try to get them painted up as quick as possible.

Ooh, Mr Sinister. Not a fan of the character, but great sculpt. Interested to see how you tackle Cable, I don't have him but have seen some great versions using cinematics impacting off his shield. I also wondered about using squares of glitter (as I've seen done for Harlequin shields) to make it super sparkly.

I'm not entirely certain, if I have read anything with him. I believe I only know him from the Xbox 360 Deadpool game (awful game, great cutscenes!). But he looks fun and the first time I left stuff off, to be able to paint it better. Same thing with Cable's gun (and he doesn't get the Cape, does no one listen to Edna? ) Regarding his shield I will probably go the lazy way as I did with the Imperial Elf from my Sister's army and use Contrast over metallics and some OSL drybrushing where the grenades hit it.

Looks good. The colours remind me of X-Men comics circa 2005. It’s that metallic aqua blue I think. Sounds like you know what you’re doing with the shield too.

Quick update, started on Spider-Gwen and Kingpin, Miles has to wait a bit to get his base finished. I'm going for a black suit for Kingpin, to have him more in style with the animated Spider-Verse movie.

Thanks Graven! Although actually his shirt & tie and her pink are three different Contrast paints

For Islay Whisky you have to talk to my father I like some, but if I drink peated I'm more inclined to a Benromach with a more barbecue smokey flavor than the Islay one. But the Talisker 57° North was excellent.

Thanks youwashock! Need to watch that movie again, visually perfect and the first look at the sequel looks cool too.

Thanks aku-chan! He's a breeze to paint so far, because he's so big and Contrast colors really help

Did a little more work, Wilson got his skin finalized and some dark grey highlights on his suit. Rings and buttons are next tomorrow.



And I was very apprehensive on doing the blue lines on Gwen, but jittery hands still succeeded and she's practically done by now (my fingers for scale )

Good work on the Marvel models Viterbi - you're getting pretty prolific with them!

Thanks Yorkright! Was debating quite some time with myself, because the white suit is so iconic, but the Daredevil Series and Into the Spider-Verse showed that black could work as well.

Thanks Thumpingbear! The models are fine overall, it's just compared to GW LotR minis, that there is a difference in face detail. I made a quick pic, there are details on, maybe I should habe thinned my paints




And sadly I did not managed to finish the apartment building in 2021 (not painting for nearly two weeks might have something to do with this ), but I did a little more work and it is slowly coming together.

Still not sure, if I try some white stripes on the windows to imitate reflections



Left side practically done, wanted it to look like the windows have been painted all over. May try some small stripes of duct tape on the one at the fire escape.



Forgot to put Ardcoat on the garage door thingy and now the decal stands out a bit But it is my favorite graffiti of the whole bunch. Needs a lot of work on the windows, those will get the same treatment as the front.



This side will probably get a big graffiti. Gonna try to print me a stencil of Bender, he deserves a wall to himself, after what happened to the one he sprayed himself on in NNY



And the roof that is finished since November



Well, see you all in 2022

Slinky wrote:The apartment is awesome, very realistic effect


Thanks Slinky! I hate painting terrain and am glad, that at least it looks the part

Finally managed to get some pics together for my 2021 recap. I believe I set myself some goals and highly likely achieved none I don't like painting and it showed this year, having enough Marines and Sisters for 25-50 PL games. Only painted a handful of new units for those.
But the tally is still ok with 75 infantry models and one vehicle. And I like the diversity, building a new warband for Mordheim (my most played game system) and making a big splash with the MCP minis. They paint up fast, especially with Contrast paints.

Everyone together:



The 40k section, Sisters in the lead:



He hasn't taken to the field, but still very happy with my SM Captain "on bike" conversion:



The MCP minis:





Cursed City (need to tackle the rest of the box this year):



Sisters of Sigmar Warband, mercs (Pit Fighter and Gandalf on square base) and the first two Rohan minis:



Last but not least five minis I painted up for a friend so his Mordheim warband is completely painted:



For 2022 I will try (as said) to get the Cursed City Box done, all the MCP I've been collecting, some more Sisters/Marines loitering on my shelves and maybe a further Mordheim warband (contemplating Vampire Hunters, so I can use CC minis and base them on squares).
