The Marvel Universe Collection Grows

A few more figures for the Marvel Universe Miniature Game got completed a while back.

I'd had the Punisher model since before the game was released and had no idea he'd eventually be usable with a downloadable card from Knight Models. I'm happy that he's usable in both Universe and the Batman Miniature Game. Ironically this paint job took more work than I expected, largely because while I was highlighting the skin I nearly messed it up entirely and had to spend quite a bit of time cleaning it up. I very nearly started over, and almost wish I had.

Daredevil was an easy enough job to paint. I decided I didn't want to do the all red or the yellow and brown outfits, so I went with a red-tinted black costume with red accessories. The picture shows me that I didn't do a great job on the DD on his chest. So I might have to go back and fix that up later.

Spider-Man is a great sculpt and pose. It's very evocative of the character. He was a bit more difficult to paint due to the fine lines on the spider. I'm sure I could have done a better job, but since I painted all three of these over the course of two evenings I'm perfectly happy with the result.

These three together with Wolverine make for a really fun 30-level "Marvel Knights" themed team. You could certainly add Black Widow and Black Panther to step them up to 40 while keeping to the same theme.

Lovely job on them all. Really quite like Daredevils alt costume not seen that one before.

Thanks. I'm happy with them. I wish I had taken better photos though.
