Yeah, I think that's tonight game, in fact. And of course, someone on BGG suggested white washing the transparent ghosts and orange washing the flames. That (should I think it's a good idea) wouldn't take long.

I also pushed through as I got my notice that Marvel United is on its way. I have a bunch of chibi superheroes in my near future....

Oh neat, Greenbrier games just announced a Kickstarter for Folklore 2, which apparently is better than the original in every way with all new miniatures that you use instead of the ones in the original game.

First of the Marvel United heroes. Hulk came out...fine? First time trying to paint in a comic book exaggerated style (ala Epic Duck). It looks fine on the tabletop and was good for a first shot but I have a lot of room to improve. Going to try doing Adam Warlock in a more traditional way (zenithal priming, for example, as versus the pure white for Hulk) and see how I feel afterwards. I'm feeling uncomfortable, so it probably means I'm pushing myself the correct amount.

More Marvel United. I'm going to back their X-Men kickstarter simply because I'm having so much fan painting these minis.

His name is Ramjeet, and he’s sidekick and right-hand man to Minerva (of Minerva’s Mercenaries fame.)

Maybe I’ll try and get to Minerva tonight.

No, she’s doing a Neo gesture with only 2 fingers.

Just wanted to say I love the color schemes that you've chosen for these minis.

Thanks. I always struggle with color choice/theory.

This looks better on the table than it does in pictures, but I think it looks pretty decent even in pictures. Continuing to love painting these. I painted this with an underlayer of metallics on all pieces, then colored over with some thin colors, then black ink for the separation. Feels weird not using washes, but good practice.

I’ve gotten some great results with contrast paints over metallics. Like peanut butter and chocolate.
