“Blonsky Became A Large Scaly Humanoid Even Stronger Than The Hulk.”


“In accordance with [Stan] Lee's wishes, the character defeated the Hulk in their first battle.”

This 40mm scale miniature of Namaste Haiku was created using "Elegoo" Water Washable Resin on a Mars 3 Pro 3D Printer and is available as an STL (Standard Triangle Language) file by "C27 Studio". The 60mm tall sculpt is clearly inspired by Stan Lee's comic book co-creation - The Abomination, and designed to be used as an 'alternative' figure for the Marvel Crisis Protocol rule-set.


Along with a 75mm scale version, the model also comes with its own 50mm circular base. However, as I dislike trying to print off anything of that size which is supposedly (super) flat, I decided to just print out the rubble upon which Emil Blonsky’s alter-ego stands and then superglue it upon an 'official' spare plastic stand by "Atomic Mass Games". I then used some green-stuff to blend the join in, and primed the entire ensemble with "Citadel" Abaddon Black.

"C27 Studio" WIPs - Namaste Haiku shaded, dry-brushed and base-layered

‘Deliberately exposing himself to a greater quantity of the same gamma radiation that transformed Bruce Banner into the Hulk’, I decided to use the former KGB agent as an opportunity to test out some of "Duncan Rhodes Two Thin Coats" I've recently been sent by "Trans Atlantis Games" to trial. As a result, I applied a double-helping of Emerald Green over Haiku to use as a prime, shaded the miniature with Battle Mud Wash, and dry-brushed him with (more) Emerald Green. I later used a similar process for the rubble, swapping out "Duncan Rhodes Two Thin Coats" colours for "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey, "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade and Nuln Oil to as to match the basing palette I’ve previously used on my ‘official’ Marvel Crisis Protocol figures.


I initially picked out the hideous lizard-like creature’s eyes, torn trousers, teeth, finger nails and toe nails with Doom Death Black by “Two Thin Coats”, and subsequently applied either White Star, Skulker Yellow or Marine Blue to the appropriate areas. With the exception of the monster’s clothing – which was given a liberal shade of “Citadel” Drakenhof Nightshade – all these parts were then washed with (more) Battle Mud Wash by “Two Thin Coats” so as to dirty them up. Finally, I went back in with some additional Emerald Green and Skulker Yellow to help tidy things up, as well as bring a little focus to the super-villain’s deep-set pupils.

"Battlefront Miniatures" WIPs - This Panzer IV has been primed, shaded and dry-brushed

Alongside my first entry into the Thirteenth Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, I have also managed to make some steady progress on a 'test' 15mm scale plastic Panzer IV by "Battlefront Miniatures". This tank will be one of four fully tracked armoured fighting vehicles I want to field as part of my 50-point German D-Day Defence force for "Flames Of War", and has rather embarrassingly been sat gathering dust upon my hobby table for quite a while.


Part of this delay has admittedly been because I simply couldn't make up my mind as to what camouflage scheme I wanted to use for my tanks. The hard-backed "Colours Of War" painting guide by "Battlefront Miniatures" is rather good at suggesting a variety of different palettes, as have been the numerous colour historical photographs I've perused. However, in the end I was rather intrigued by the notion that Panzer IV crews would pigment their chassis in all sorts of different designs dependent upon what materials were to hand and their particular fancy. As a result I plan to apply a scheme similar to the one I used for all the Panzergrenadiers' helmets, in an effort to tie the entire force together...

The Abomination is a superb model, and the green you've used looks fantastic on him/it. I love how his yellow eyes stand out so much, it really gives the figure an unsettling stare.


I never knew that panzer crews could basically paint their own tanks! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Cheers Matt. Big fan of the C27 Studio prints, so expect plenty more to come. This is my fave incarnation of the Abomination too. Super-pleased you like him.


I'm currently working on my pilot Pamzer IV camo, so hopefully it'll be finished soon, and then I can crack on with the rest of the unit. 😀

That Abomination is a great model and you have brought him to life wonderfully. A great job all round. Who would have thought painting a tank would create so many options and dilemmas? I am sure it will look great when done and fit in with your infantry.

Thanks Undercoat. I've got many a "C27 Studio" superhero/villain planned for 2023 I assure you. LOL!!! I'm pretty happy with how the test Panzer IV is turning out, so once completed I'm pretty sure the remaining three will be quite quickly finished too.

That is a cracking sculpt of Abomination, the one they featured in "She Hulk" was so much better than the on in the second Hulk movie!


Really looking forward to you doing some "camo" on your Panzers mate. 😁


Cheers Roger.

Cheers Roger. This is my favourite version of the Abomination by far. I wasn't impressed at all by the reimagined version Marvel created for the recently finished "Immortal Hulk" comic book series. Hopefully C27 Studios will do Wonder Man at some point - as he had a terrific fight against Abomination in the old West Coast Avengers comic.


Hopefully the first of the Panzer IVs will be finished for an early Jan 2023 posting. I've set my sights on finishing my German D-Day Defence Force by the end of that month.

Abomination turned out great Simon, and hope the tanks speed up now you've settled on a colour scheme.

Thanks Dave. Really enjoying both the C27 Studio 3D prints and Duncan's paints. More to come as you can probably expect, LOL!!! Definitely hope to get the first of my Panzer IVs finished soon. Fingers crossed the camo colours work out.
