So, last year I threw cash at the Batman: Gotham City Chronicles Kickstarter. This week I received boxes of plastic stuff, and it will occupy a fair bit of my painting and blogging time.
I've made a start with the eponymous hero. I'm relieved the belt gives him a splash of colour, because otherwise's he's just boring monochrome, albeit with a dynamic pose. I'm not game to pump up the contrast in the cape much more. I'm adding a new scale tag for the blog- these figures are easily 35mm soles to eyes, and are on 30mm bases.
I have a vague strategy for painting the figures. Some are used more often (basic thugs etc), some use similar colours, some are just cool or will otherwise be fun to paint. There are plenty of bright colours, hidden eyes and faces (thus quick to paint) and dramatic capes. Be prepared for plenty of bat-content on this blog!
