You wouldn't like me when I'm angry...

Before I start any new projects or models, I thought I'd have a crack at finishing off a couple of the miniatures currently sat half-painted on my paint palette. Hence, one Hulk:

Originally started when the wife and I made a concerted effort to watch our way through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after knocking out Iron Man and Thor my enthusiasm waned as I focused more on other projects.

I'd considered painting his trousers classic purple, or something at least a little brighter to give some more visual interest to the figure, but a quick google image search of stills from the first Avengers filmed revealed that he's wearing black trousers, so black trousers he got.

The Hulk's a bit of a big lad, towering over most other figures, which doesn't make for the easiest figure to take pictures of:

But yes, she does have a face! The Hulk was mostly finished when I came back to him, mostly just needing his base and pupils painting to get his to this stage of completion!

I even painted the back too, where you'll find surprisingly detailed musculature - Heroclix figures are often quite nicely detailed, if you can pick out the good ones!

Finishing the Hulk brings the Tally to: 

25 vs 131 = -106

Alas, poor Captain America (the last of the four modern Heroclix figures I'd prepped) may never see the light of day, although my brother-in-law has just lent us the second Avengers movie, so you never know...

Birthday loot!

It was my birthday last Sunday, and miniature loot from Mother, whilst exciting, means another hit to the Tally:

24 vs 131 = -107

I plan to split the box, and use roughly half for Frostgrave and the rest for some Wildling conversions...
