Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I feel like these took forever to finish, but here's what I've been up to: painting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Heroclix!

I've wanted decent miniatures of these guys for a long time.  The old Dark Horse figures are somewhat hard to come by and can be rather expensive on Ebay, so when Heroclix recently put out a set based on TMNT, I had to to jump on it.  I'm pretty happy with these guys. I tried to paint each one's skin with slightly different greens for variety.  I debated painting the bandanas different colors but decided to go with the classic red.  I used this Kevin Eastman illustration for inspiration.

Here's how they looked when I got them. 

I pinned them onto Secret Weapon "Town Square" bases.  I like these bases for superhero-type figures in general and sewer manhole covers really sealed the deal for the Turtles.

I thought I would also share that I played a really fun Land of the Lost themed game using Golgo Island rules and the Sleestak and "Pakuni" miniatures you may remember from my past blog entries. (I can't believe I painted these Sleestaks all the way back in 2014.)  Good times.

I hope to post again soon.  Stay Tuned.
