Monkey Magic

Woot! I have followers!

Is that good?

By the way, it might seem like I am the Speedy Gonzalez of painting but most of these figures have been waiting for their moment in the sun for a while now.

Anyone who knows me at Heroclix will tell you I have a strange and slightly manic love for the monkeys. So when I saw Pulp City's range of monkeys, well I was hooked. I plan to use these guys as their character names, under the super team name " The Sinister Simians."

First, Che Gorilla.

Just a nice simple gorilla with a mini gun. Great figure, but my wife kind of spoiled my fun by asking, "Why does he have man boobs?"

Next up, Virus.

Great figure, full of character but a pain to put together. Fiddly bits for those unskilled with the drills and whatnot.

His mechanical protector, Apebot.

I went with a white colour scheme because I figured Virus would be a geek and the most intimidating of all armoured characters are, of course, Stormtroopers. Just a great figure to paint and put together.

Finally, Chimp Chi.

I really, really wanted this one to work. But, alas, I failed. Could not get traction on this one and ended up just finishing him. Sigh....

I still have Dr Red, the explosive orang-utan on the table, and hope to add him to the motley crew soon.

Thanks to everyone who's taken a look and especially to Rob Bresnen for his kind comments on his blog, Four Colour Supers.

Catch ya next time!

  1. Have you though of incorporating some of the HC Simians in to your figures? Mallah, AA or even HT Grodd, HoT Gorilla Man even AA Ultrahumanite. I find the Super Apes to be a little on the small side.
