Back to Gotham!
I decided to get myself back in the painting swing by taking on a couple of decidedly faster, easier projects. To that end I hauled out my box of Heroclix with the goal of doing some more touchups for my eventual DC Adventures game.
Last night I rebased and fixed up 5 figures that should be great if I run things in a "What-If?" or "Elseworlds" vein.
First up are the Batman of the near future Damian Wayne and the last pre-52 Batgirl Stephanie Brown. I'll be honest that I don't know much about Damian Wayne but I thought the costume was a cool variant on the basic Batman costume and would work in some different settings. Stephanie Brown is by far my favourite Batgirl and has been in editorial purgatory (for no reason anyone seems to be able to determine) since DCs new-52 reboot.
The Questions are detectives who (the original atleast) is the inspiration for the Rorschach character in Watchmen. I first became a fan of The Question through his depiction in the DC Animated Justice League Unlimited cartoons (I can hear my serious comic friends cringing as I type this).
And last but not least is Black Mask. Black Mask is one of those great Batman villains that straddles the line between being cartoonish and just being a noir character with some slightly odd clothing choices.
The other exciting thing about getting these done for me is that I found some figures that should work really well for Shadowrun while I was going through my clix.
