Supers Unlimited - Miniatures

Sorry for the silence in the last few months, but I promise it has been with good reason!

I have decided to launch a line of supers minis later this year through Kitbash Games!

Alphas - A Superhero Miniatures Game (Kickstarter)

Still struggling on the painting front, but in the mean-time I wanted to draw attention to a cool little Kickstarter I am backing: Alphas - A Superhero Miniatures Game

This one has super-heroes. I love super-heroes in case no one noticed! It is also done in a chibi style, and I like that a lot too! Finally it is a board game, and I really like those!

There are a couple of super-hero board game Kickstarters live right now, and one is a dollar drawing juggernaut called Batman, while Alphas is something much more indy and markedly different to that (yes, I am backing both!). Alphas is funded and has 10 days to go, and if there is anyone else out there who likes super-heroes, board games and the chibi style I just wanted to flag it up!

Beast Man

Beast Man joins the ranks of Skeletor's Evil Warriors as my Masters of the Universe Project makes slow but fairly steady progress, and means I have painted two minis for He-Month so far. With two Evil Warriors now finished, I think Orko is due for some reinforcements soon!

In-keeping with many Masters of the Universe characters, Beast Man has a typically bonkers colour scheme, including an orange-blue discord and red side by side with orange - if, for example, I was painting a random generic superhero or space-farer mini they are not colour combinations I would consider!

I have tried to remain fairly faithful to colour scheme depicted in the 1980's Masters of the Universe cartoon as that is clearly the primary design inspiration for the sculpt (available from Qminis' Etsy store - click for link), although I tried to differentiate the two types areas of red a little (torso piece in contrast to the boots and arm bands), and the two areas of blue (fur trunks and the amulet thing-y).

While not my best painting, I did enjoy being able to finish the mini in an afternoon, and overall I am pleased with how it turned out.

The bottom image is Beast Man's game card for the personal set of Masters of the Universe skirmish rules. The first draft is complete and I hope to get some games in with the rules in the next few weeks.
