Some more models for the Marvel Universe Miniature Game, namely Gambit and Night crawler.

Seriously lovely models to work with. Actually enjoyed painting these ones!

We’re X-men, we’re X-men in tights!

…We roam around the forest looking for fights.
We’re X-men, we’re X-men in tights.
We rob from the rich and give to the poor, that’s right!
We may look like sissies, but watch what you say or else we’ll put out your lights….Ahem. Anyways.

New times calls for new game systems. Not that I necessarily have the time for yet another game system, but really, who’s counting? Knight Models released a new game with lovely sculpts of my favourite super heroes, so I obviously had to buy them, simple as that.

Even though the blog-radio-silence as of lately, I’ve done a bunch of hobbying, more or less every other night (every other night I put my oldest to bed, so the nights where the wife puts him to bed, I get to paint! win-win).

Apart from 4 really greatly detailed sculpts (Knight Models really do know their sculpts), the starter box included stat cards for all of them, and a rulebook containing one scenario. As of now there’s also starter boxes for Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, but I’m not as keen on them as I am with the X-men. The bases are sadly sculpted, so they do all look the same, but a bit of green stuff and grass tufts remedied the situation, thankfully.

So, super heroes ahoy!

First up, Wolverine.

Buns of steel is a common concept in this merry gang.

Second, Mr. Whineypants-…I mean Cyclops.

Same picture, but from behind! Rear-freem!

Next, Rogue.

Rogue? Rouge? Roueg?

Zoomin’ off into the night.

Next up, Colossus. Whom I have grown deeply fond of after the Deadpool movie.

Check out mah canons!

If I hadn’t already mentioned buns of steel…

To spend even more time on a game I’m not even sure when I’ll get the chance to play, I printed and laminated all the X-men gangs stat cards with fitting backsides. And trust me, it wasn’t easy finding a non-disturbing one of Rogue. Laminated stuff is really great, especially when combined with dry-erase markers. Mmmm Lamination.
