Painted Hulk

This, of course, is the Hulk for Marvel Crisis Protocol. An instantly recognisable figure in modern pop culture, though personally I don’t find him as engaging or loveable as the rest of the world seems to. The Crisis Protocol version is clearly from before the part of the story where Bruce Banner gets to control the Hulk; this one is pure rage monster. Still, rampaging around the board smashing people is both fun and effective, and of course part of the charm of Crisis Protocol is putting your favourite characters on the board. Hulk suffers a lot against enemies that can control him, or against the relatively small number that can just cut his massive pool of hit points down quickly enough.

Painting Hulk was quite an unusual experience in that he’s pretty much composed entirely of three colours. I put more effort than usual into his skin, since there is so much of it, and I think that this has worked out pretty well. As might be expected from the character, Hulk’s sculpt is… er… sculpted, which gave me a lot of opportunity to bring out the muscle striations with the brush. All in all, a lot of fun and a quick job too.

To give an idea of just how huge Hulk is, here he is standing next to Baron Zemo, a more or less normal human.

Next on the painting table: Black Dwarf.

  1. Dude, you are crank out the MCP lately! Love the classic look!

  2. I’m apathetic towards Hulk as well. I don’t know why but I don’t find Bruce Banner or The Hulk’s powers all that interesting but somebody out there clearly does. The skin tone does look very nice on your version and I like his eyes as well. They make him look like he is full of rage!

    • Thank you. I guess Hulk is a classic comic character so for whatever reason he’s really recognizable. I also grew up watching the Lou Ferrigno tv series which I suppose improved his visibility with the non-comic-reading world.

  3. Nicely done. 🙂

  4. Very nice and you seem to be focusing on these and doing them well

    • Thanks, that is very kind of you. It’s easier to stay focused on a painting project when I’m also actually playing with the minis.
