This is Ebony Maw for Marvel Crisis Protocol. He’s one of Thanos’s lieutenants and in the MCU he’s the only one who gets to be more than a punching bag for the goodies. In game, he’s a powerhouse when he can use his abilities but has more of them to use than his power generation allows. I haven’t tried it yet but I theorise that he’d be a good Avenger since Steve Rogers’ leadership would benefit his power usage immensely and make him a complete pain to take down. Ebony Maw also brings the option of the tactics card Shhh which can just turn off an enemy superpower at a key moment; playing this at the right time could win the game for you.
Ebony Maw was a lot of fun to paint. I went for a slightly more blue scheme than the card art (which is more predominantly black in accordance with his name I suppose) as the darker shade just wasn’t working for me with the yellow and white on his tabard. I did spend a lot of time frustratingly correcting my errors staying in the lines of the stripey bits of his clothes and I suspect that this still doesn’t really bear up to close scrutiny but it’s good enough for me at tabletop distance. Also unusually for me, I painted the Maw’s eyes – I felt that they really added to the creepy otherworldliness he has going on.
Next on the painting table: Hulk.
