Batman: Ra's Al Ghul and the League of Assassins

It's some great soap opera stuff today, bat-fans!

Ra's Al Ghul


Ra's Al Ghul, the Demon's Head, is a formidable centuries-old opponent. He is the head of the League of Assassins. He has deduced Bruce's identity, and calls him 'Detective'. I wasn’t supremely impressed with this sculpt. It is what it is. Painting facial hair is a pain.

... and is a sore loser.

These assassins came out pretty nice and quick; the dark red robes are quite nice.

Talia Al Ghul



Ra's's headstrong daughter, she seduced Bruce Wayne and bore him a son, Damian/ Robin. She calls Bruce 'Beloved'.

The facial sculpt here isn’t great, but the flowing robes and white/ green combo are great.

Heretic


Rebuffed as to an ongoing relationship with Batman, Talia cloned Damian and vat-grew Heretic. The sculpt shows a moment when he was set alight. Not an exciting figure, but the flames help.

Lady Shiva


The deadliest martial artist in the world, her daughter is Cassandra Cain/ Orphan. The bodysuit is red ink over gold, and looks even better on the miniature than it does in a photo.

Ninjas


I sprayed these Panzer Grey and picked out the armour and straps with AP Dark Tone wash.

  2. Hey Barks these figures are disappointing after seeing your last lot of villains.
    The Assassins & Ninjas are fine but the other sculpts are uninspiring, Ra's Al Ghul is actually pretty poor!
    Your paintwork is great given what you have been given!

    1. I’ve got one more bat-batch of figures to go, Darling; they’re a bit better sculpts! Watch this space.

  3. What I really like is the pulp vibe they all instil. You did a pretty nice job!
