Supers Minis II

This is my final set of supers minis, and the final figures from my original batch of 90 or so from 2013.

See Super Minis I 
See the Original Post from 2013

It is not obvious here but I've created a make-shift lightbox out of foamcore board. I think it does a good job scattering the light, but I will need to adjust the design. Once I get it perfected, I'll try to get a tutorial posted showing how to build it from scratch.

The Ground Game

These fill out the ground-based heroes and villains.

The Cat Lady

Thing 2

Thing 1

The Radioactive Man

Rust Bucket

Wild Child

The Cough

Blind Justice


Two Gun Sally

The Good Cop


The Strangler

Lady Maybe

The Flying Game

These are the remainder of my flyers. I need to acquire more flying female figures to balance things out.

The Brown Note

Red Wing

Storm Crow

The Blue Fairy

Miss Melody


Next Up

I'll start on my "greenskins". I've got kobolds, gremlins, mites, orcs, and goblins. I think it is about 50 figures in total. I'm am presuming that they'll be quick to paint because they'll have mostly the same shades of skin complexion and armor with weapons.  

Even so, it may take several weeks.

Supers Minis I

The following are primarily HeroClix repaints.  They are the last batch of primed minis which I started in 2013 ... that's five years ago.

The Queue

Here's the set of figures ready to paint.

I've got them atop two work benches with magnets. The bases of my figures are zinc washers which allows them to affix to the magnets. It also works well for my storage system which has magnets glued to the bottom of the containers to hold the figures in place during transport.

The Pictures

This is about 22 of the supers out of a set of 45. The black bar at the bottom is my LED desk lamp. I am trying to get better lighting. Eventually I will need to make an effort to construct a light box.

Red Sash

Rainbow Rider

Alexa Indra


Blue Wave

Big Green

The Emerald Princess

Suave Mauve

Handy Andy

Black Head

The Bulge

Chrome Dome

Lady K

Anger Ghost

Purple Yurple





Gold Face

Blue Wing

Hot Head

Next Up  

I've got another 22 figures to paint for the supers, including about 5 male flyers. I'll need to look for some female flyers to balance things out.

Heavy Weapons Minis

More from my backlog.

Red Army Heavies

These are some minis that I think will go well with the Retropocalypse genre, They'll serve as the Heavy Weapons unit for the Red Army even though they look like they are using Aztec headgear.

What was, and what shall be.

The Leader

Heavy Squad Automatic Weapon


Heavy Beam Weapon

Automatic Multi-munition Shot-gun

Group Shot.

Next Up

These next are from my bin of shame.

They are the last of my primered figures identified first in a blog post back in 2013.

They are all mostly HeroClix figures which I'll repaint for my Pulp / Supers genre. I want to paint them up very quick so that I can move beyond them to my backlog of Orcs and Goblins for the Dunjon of Death.

There's 15 figures shown here, but I've got about 25 more elsewhere. Total 40 to paint with "tabletop quality"; I'll slap-dash colors but I'll take time with the faces and hands.

15 of 40 from the backlog bin.
