|Superhero WIPs - Both Steel and Wildcat should be soon ready for the tabletop|
Having finally settled upon a colour scheme for my Gotham City high rise rooftop I have not only managed to finish applying a third coat of “Vallejo” Heavy Red to the interior of my brick walls. But also finished the actual roof’s shingle coating itself using a combination of “Vallejo” Heavy Bluegrey and “Citadel” Nuln Oil. Now I need only ‘cut in’ the walls’ stone capping and the interior of my outer rooftop will be complete… Although I may well add a little brown ink to the ground just to break up the decidedly monotone look.

These “Wizkids” models should all be able to play a sizeable role in my planned ‘Battle for Gotham City’ campaign. I’ve yet to decide upon the actual costume paint scheme to use for Batgirl as she has had so many. But Barbara Gordon will almost certainly be predominantly grey with a blue cape and cowl so as to tie-in with my Batman figure. Steel should prove a fairly straight forward paint-job with his all-metallic physique and simple red cape. Wildcat however will undoubtedly be the easiest to finish though as I’ve already painted his all-black ‘gym-attire’.

In addition I have also been basing-up some notable-looking henchmen and a ‘guest-star’ supervillain. This Vampire Roustabout is actually a “Horrorclix” model, and like so many of the figures I own from this range was a greatly appreciated gift from Bryan of “Vampifan’s Wolrd Of The Undead” fame. I don’t actually plan on using the ‘heavy’ as a vampire (for now at least). But thought he’d make an impressive bruiser for one of the Crime Bosses; possibly even for the Joker in view of his giant hammer.
IMAC is actually a test model to see just how well the figure paints up before I commit to buying a number of the miniatures to use as robot minions. Finally I thought Man-Bat would prove an interesting loner, who may well suddenly swoop down upon a battle simply because the noise and activity has attracted his attention.
