"Killmonger Will Protect You From Harm!"

"You'll take nothing from me ever again!"

This 40mm scale plastic figure of Erik Killmonger is produced by “Atomic Mass Games” and can be bought as part of  the company's Black Panther & Killmonger expansion set for "Marvel Crisis Protocol". Assembled using fourteen separate pieces, not including its stand, the model depicts the "fallen son of Wakanda" standing upon a statue of a black panther with his hand-weapons raised.


The miniature was initially primed using two layers of "Citadel" Abaddon Black and had his combat trousers painted using a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Grey and "Citadel" Biel-Tan Green. I then layered all of N'Jadaka's bare flesh with "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna, his spear shaft and sword handle with "Citadel" Doombull Brown, and his spear-tip's straps with "Vallejo" Heavy Brown.

"Marvel Crisis Protocol" WIPs - Venom and Spider-Man

All of these areas were subsequently shaded with a mixture of Strong Tone Quickshade by "The Army Painter" and "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade. Killmonger's gold and ivory necklace was pigmented in "Vallejo" Gold and White, before being washed with some more Strong Tone Quickshade by "The Army Painter". Whilst his sword blade, pommel, spear-tip, belt-buckle and metal knee-pads were treated to some "Citadel" Ironbreaker (or "Vallejo" Gunmetal) and "Citadel" Nuln Oil.


The figure's pre-modelled street pavement was undercoated with "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey and washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil. It was then dry-brushed with (more) "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey using a make-up brush. Finally, I very carefully dry-brushed the obsidian statue of a black panther with "Vallejo" Turquoise and shaded that with "Citadel" Nuln Oil as well.

"Colony 87" WIPs - The four security troopers have had their details 'picked out'

Having completed my first 'pairing' of arch-rivals for "Marvel Crisis Protocol", I have set to work in earnest on the duo of Venom and Spider-Man. Luckily, my model of Eddie Brock's alter-ego had already been built and primed, so I have currently just laid down some rough "Vallejo" White layers on his symbiote's spider-markings, as well as washed them with "Citadel" Nuln Oil, in order to better see the delicate design I'm going to be painting.


I've also managed to make some further progress on the four "Colony 87" Security Troopers by "Crooked Dice Game Design Studio" which I plan on submitting to Dave Stone's latest Community Challenge. In a single session I have completed all of the base layers for the quartet's knee-pads, automatic rifles, data-pads, face-masks and pistols, so now just need to layer in some "Vallejo" Gold and Brass, before applying the different washes...

Thanks Undercoat. I'm looking to get the entire unit of Security Troopers finished over the next few days and then crack on with the Marvel Crisis Protocol models - I have a fair few in the pipeline for that game as I try to target completing the ten figs needed to try out the rules before the end of the year.

Cheers Dave, much appreciated. I'll hopefully have the first of my Unity Challenge Security Troopers finished before the week is out. The Marvel Crisis Protocol minis will take a little longer.

Killmonger looks great! Really good job on him, great skin tones and well painted face. Love him, well done. Spider-Man is fun to paint, his web detail is all sculpted in so should have a good time painting him. I also think Venom is a fab model to. Those colony minis look cool to. Great post!

Thanks ever so much Roger. Yep, the "Marvel Crisis Protocol" minis are a bit bigger than normal, with Killmonger's sword tip actually reaching 45mm from the base. I think Venom's white markings are going to cause me some consternation, but the "Citadel" Nuln Oil wash over the initial "Vallejo" White has definitely helped see the markings a lot better. The Security Troopers should be finished with another dedicated session, fingers crossed :-)
