Easter Monday seems an appropriate day for Calendar Man, the date obsessed villain for the Batman Miniature Game.
Not my best work by a long way, but good enough, given that the actual model is fairly dull. I've tried to get the dates he has tattooed around his head done, but they are a bit wonky.
In game terms Calendar Man is a slow moving assassin, who is quite durable, and has abilities that allow him to mess with your opponent. Amusingly, he has a variable trait that is different depending on which month you are playing the game in. This not only makes him interesting to use, but also means that your opponent will probably never be fully aware of his capabilities.
I'm going to a tournament in May, and there's a very good chance that Calendar Man will feature in my crew. For reference, his bonus trait in May is Disarray, allowing to mess with enemy counters.
CM turned out well Kieron - I think you did an excellent job. :)ReplyDelete
I have to admit (as I have before) to not being a fan of the 'Trait of the Month' gimmick for CM - in some ways fluff, but it creates a fuzziness in design of which i am not really a fan.
I see what you mean, but it's already a somewhat 'fuzzy' game. I'm always happy for something thematic and a bit daft as it breaks up the po-faced nature of the game from time to time.Delete
A strange fellow, not my favourite sculpt but you painted him quite well.ReplyDelete
Not mine either. 'Quite well' is as far as I'd go with my painting of this one.Delete
That's a new character to me and good work too.ReplyDelete
Thanks. He's mainly known for his background role in the storyline that began in the Long Halloween.Delete
