Get some polyhedral dice. Set up a few tables, and roll. Paint what the dice indicate.

Or work backwards. I dislike having unassembled minis lying about. So I'd say assemble first.

Thanks mate. It has been a nice change of pace, but now I need to get back on the paint horse (or something). Yeah, JLD is a good shout. I realised I forgot to include something on Constantine's base - so he's now got an ancient tome on the floor also. Whilst I was doing that, I found a brain in a jar also. I can't decide whether to give it to Professor Pyg or Nurse Harley...

Ordinarily, I'd agree with you Red, but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by what's there already. I think the unbuilt stuff will stick about for variety for now. I do generally have a rule of not playing with anything unpainted. Maybe I should set up a game and use that to motivate me

Picked up a Killing Joke joker for a steal; he's the official DCUMG version. Still wish they'd done one with a camera...

So the short term looks like JLD and GCS. I can do that, right?
I quite fancy running Sirens. Ivy has the ability to take any Henchman in the game, regardless of faction or other restrictions, which must surely open up some broken combos...

You're thinking too small mate! This is surely the creative spark needed to bring renowned villain The Brain into DCUMG!

Thanks. I sometimese feel my grungy style doesn't work for DCU - fine for BMG and its street crud, but not so much solid comic garishness. However, the JLD can be... dark, right? The only one I'm really worried about is Etrigan, hence the fairly bright cloak. I'm unlikely to use these guys in BMG: Magic is just broken as things stand. They're going to live in the DCU box.

Tights are simply done with thinned Vallejo smoke, then lightly wiping away where they'd get caught by the light.

And excitingly, I found Owlman's missing arm! Now why, you may ask, would this matter, as I'd converted him anyway with a Razerang? Well I've currently got a Arkham City Batman missing an arm because of said conversion, so now I can use Owlman's to make him into Zurr-en-Arr, which was the plan for that spare Batman all along. Cos I need another model to paint...

Huzzah, etc.

Good work.

I will second rolling a die to decide what to do...
More accurately, rolling will tell you what you don't want to do:
Roll die,
"Nah, I don't feel like doing that one"
Re-roll die,
"Nah, not that one"
...
Repeat until you get "Yeah, I could probably do that" or similar response.

Cheers mucker. Good to force myself back into the habit.

So, having read this week's issue of The Demon: Hell on Earth (out tomorrow, it's dead good) as an excuse to check my colours, I think Etrigan is nearly done:


Mostly, eyes and a bit of work around the mouth. Not sure about flames/osl? Base?

And the rest of the JLD, who aren't quite as far along:

Skin for them next.

After that, it'll be the sirens, assorted vicious plant life, and miscellanous additional Harley Quinns, methinks.

So we had a snow day!
Not had one in... 8 years?
Poor wife walked to work in the snow hour and half there, bless her. The sense of obligation of hospital staff. Managed to get a lift home at least. Meant I was in charge of the 3 spawn today, taught the boys DC Deckbuilding which they loved.

Anyway.
Got a demo as Overlord (villain) of Monolith Gotham City Chronicles.

Lots of fun was had. Crazy game, it broke Kickstarter in the first hour. Decent, well worth a look.

Got a (very) early 40th present from a mate.

It's full of evil toys! Perfect.


Also. I made a Bat... Man.

Zurr-en-Arr!

And I manages to lay down initial skin tones on Zatanna.


Plus, I think, finish Constantine and Jason Blood.

Not bad is selling yourself short, John and Jason are both looking fantastic. Especially your work on the fabric textures on Constantine's coat and Blood's jacket, really quality stuff.

If you don't mind the criticism, I think Zatanna's blouse and jacket might need a bit more work, the rough look works for Constantine but Zatanna's should possibly be a bit smoother (though it could be that those areas just aren't finish yet, in which case ignore me, I'm being overly picky in any case! )


How was running the Batman game in Bad Guy Mode? Is it still competitive with win conditions you can work towards, or are you more in a GM role where you simply set stuff up for the players working against you?

You're most kind old son. Glad you approve. They were a pleasure to do. I'm all about the muck.

Zatanna c&c gratefully received, she's still WIP. Blouse and gloves are way off still, never mind the jacket which needs a layer of VJ black patina.

Playing as Overlord is fun. I only felt like a GM insofar as I have played, and won, as Catwoman, so was helping the Catwoman player a kot. The scenario doesn't lend itself to heroes who know what they're doing though. I got creamed on the last turn, but the guy running red hood had played both sides of the demo before so knew how to play to win. Still fun - I held them to the last dice roll of the game. Much fun was had, I'm now the only person ever to pull off all of Bane's objectives in the first turn. Which is nice

I honestly think that Zatanna's blouse and gloves ought to be just.. pristine white. Maybe put a very subtle wash on them afterwards, for shadow detail, but she's a professional showman, and probably bleaches her whites.

Not where I should be

Those two gents are amazing, you really are pushing the skill level lately. Love the aesthetic. One question, excuse the ignorance, could you make John's tie a bit more colourful, is it meant to be brown, or could it be red, or even black, just to break up the beige.

The lady is looking mighty fine so far, might need some Daz to get those whites clean mind you.

Great to spend the time with the kids, needs to be done, I know you probably did not have much choice, but it is still always worth it. They soon grow up a bit and disappear, even when they are in the same room!

Good to see you getting in some games still too, busy busy boy.
