Hobby Update 9/30/2020

It’s been busier this past week, but I have a pretty cool set of models that I finished up still. First, it’s the twin Peter Parker Spiderman models. The first one is from Marvel: Crisis Protocol and the second is from the old Knight Models range. I am going to be honest here, unlike the Hulks, I really don’t have a preference in model. Both models have great detail, but maybe the MCP one has the edge because of the increase size. Not really sure because the poses and models are pretty great on both figures.

For Batman Miniatures Game I continued my work on the Back to Gotham starter box completing Thug 3, or chainsaw thug. While the starter box clearly intends him to be a member of Joker’s gang and the studio paint job does face paint on him I went with more toned down look. He is unknown affiliation which means I can take him in other crews, such as Soldiers of Fortune, Riddler, and Birds of Prey crews which I own. This just helps me make the model more flexible without breaking theme.

Getting Started: Starting Out with Colors

If you have been keeping up, you should now have or be ready to purchase brushes, a palette, and know which vendor(s) paints you want to go with. The next thing to find intimidating is the number of colors in that paint rack. Most manufacturers churn out 40, 50, 60 or more colors and picking which colors you want to get started at a few US dollars for each pot or dropper bottle can stretch your initial hobby funds pretty thin.

In this article, I will go over some strategies you can use in deciding what colors you want to pick up first as you start to put the finishing touches on your starting paint kit. It shouldn’t take a ton of colors to be able to get started with painting. Down the road, as you expand your collection of paints or perfect your abilities to mix the colors you need to help with your growing and continued painting hobby.
