Quick and Dirty Re-paint (Pistol Wraith)

I have been relatively inactive painting lately due to play more golf then painting. I did watch a tutorial online the other day that got me thinking about my incorporeal models and I decided to try it out on one of my pistol wraith for my Cephalyx/Cryx armies.

I just need to do the base and I'm ready to call him done. The mini is much closer to what I wanted then my previous green version and was way easier. I really wish I'd have figured this out prior to painting my risen because I'd much rather have them looking like this guy. After completing this mini I am part tempted to paint up an entire Cryx for using this style and make a full on ghost army.

Brainstorming Batman Crews (Batman)

I still have no real idea how to play BMG but that will never keep me from one of my favorite past times.....list building. All minis in the following lists will be minis I own in some state of assembly. I'm currently working on my Red Hood (Joker) crew so I figured I should start to plan some crews for them to fight against. I could surely have them fight against Bane or some other "bad guy" crew but where's the fun in that? Time to throw up the bat signal and bring in the "good guys"

The first batman crew with two models not pictured. Lets break it down:

  • James Gordon: 70 rep/$200
  • Batgirl: 59 rep
  • Alfred Pennyworth: 30 rep
  • Alpha: 38 rep/$500
  • Beta: 27 rep/$300
  • Delta: 33 rep/$300
  • Agent O'Connell: 29 rep
  • Gotham Policeman (tonfa): 14 rep

Total: 300 rep/$1300

Hey Nog I thought you said you were talking Batman crews.....where's Batman? I know but this list is built under the Batman heading to allow me access to Alfred (the limited edition for pre-ordering the regular rule book). Alfred is so important because he allows me an extra $300 in funding and thus allows me to take Gordon's entire swat team. I filled in the last points with additional members of the GCPD. I think I have a lot of my bases covered with this list but I could be wrong.....if you know the game better feel free to comment :) I find when I am building BMG list I like themes and this is the Gordons (Jim and Barbara) with the GCPD.

Since these are Batman lists I threw some of those together too.

Orgins Batman list

Arkham Batman list

I have some other versions of these lists using a special card I received from Knight Models when they sent me some missing parts but more on that another time. Lastly I will leave you with a WiP to show I'm have put down some paint since the orange on Blackgate inmates. 

Started painting up the shipping container. I'm pretty happy with this so far with very little work. I need to finish up the writing on both sides of the container and a few other details but that shouldn't take too much time just gotta sit down and do it. Time for bed see you soon....hopefully.

Gotham Scatter Terrain

Hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th. After I decided I was jumping in on the Batman Miniatures Game (BMG) I spent a lot of time thinking about terrain. I have played with the idea of scratch building terrain and have looked at multiple vendors that sell laser cut MDF buildings. I even back a kickstarter to help make my Gotham a reality.

This is just one of the building I will be getting from the kickstarter but I will do an entirely separate post on those when they arrive in the not to distant future.....I hope. Ok well onto the main portion of this post scatter terrain. The majority of this terrain was purchased from a company in Australia I came across years ago and just happenend to remember when I needed. As you can see most of this terrain was picked up to compliment the warehouse I will be getting from that Impudent Mortal kickstarter.

Nothing says Gotham like water towers for rooftops. I probably should have picked up a second one.

What self respecting warehouse doesn't have forklifts and crates?

Pretty self explanatory ;)

Some random grates to spice up some buildings and security camera for the warehouse. 

Picked this up main for the stripper pole sign.....Gotham needs a strip club for Maroni's crew and the GCPD boys to hang out!

Mostly assembled water tower. I need to do the ladder still and have to do something with the hatch on top as I feel the one they have is lacking. 

Some of the assembled crates and pallets.

Batman and Agent Ron taking cover in the warehouse yard.

Official shipping containers from Knight Models.

These popped together really easy and I may have to get another pack sometime down the road depending on how well they paint up.

Joker Crew WiPs

I haven't done much else on my Joker crew just a little work on the henchmen. I mentioned in the Red Hood post that I picking up some Army Painter paints and this was why.

I thinned down the jumpsuit orange and shot it through the airbrush. Orange has pretty shotty coverage and these will need to be hit at least once more to get adequate base coat coverage but it does look like it is the "right" color for prison jumpsuits. I will most likely be using this color a lot in my BMG painting as I intend to paint all of Joker's clowns pants this color and will probably use it on Zsasz and the lunatics as well.

I know this post wasn't all that exciting but trying to get back in the groove of posting so figured I'd throw this up here. I have begun working on some of my scatter terrain as well seeing as it feels like the game required a nice amount of terrain to keep gun at the appropriate power level and give the table a proper Gotham feel.
