Painted Thor

This is Thor, another character for use in Marvel Crisis Protocol. He’s rather like She-Hulk and Black Panther in that he is the leader for his own affiliation (Asgard in this case) while also being a member of the Avengers. Of course, everyone who’s anyone has been an Avenger at some point. At a mighty 5 threat, Thor is a huge beatstick, able to throw people around and eventually charge up to a really cool area attack where he zaps everyone nearby with lightning. So far I’ve only played against Thor so I need to find some time to use him myself, either in Asgard (although I’d need to get some more Asgardians to keep him company if I do), Avengers or as an unaffiliated splash to another team; I theorise that he’d quite like the power gain from A-Force for example.

Thor has appeared in a great many costumes over the years, ranging from the truly silly days of golden-era comics to the fairly silly costumes of the MCU. His clothes are probably notable for having a higher combusting point than the metal used to make Stormbreaker in the Infinity War film. For the miniature, I went with the card art which is probably about middle of the road for how silly Thor has ever looked; I like the contrast between the brightness of the cape and the drabness of the rest of his clothes. All in all I very much enjoyed painting Thor; the miniature really looks like his comic book appearances. I tried the most basic possible interpretation of non-metallic-metal technique on the clasps (?) on Thor’s shirt in that I painted them using greys rather than metallic paints and I’m quite satisfied with the result.

Next on the painting table: Stannis Brocker.

  1. By Odin’s beard man, he looks fabulous!

  2. I like the contrast from drab armor to the bright red cap! And I think the NMM came out well, it never works for me, but I’m always impressed when others can pull it off!

  3. Very nicely done! 🙂

  4. Odin smiles upon you! Thor came out well and it sounds like he is a great mini to be able to use in games too.

    • Cheers Kuribo! Currently I’m buying and painting all the Crisis Protocol minis but sharing them for gaming purposes with a friend. He was using Thor again yesterday (not against me) and managed to zap half the Guardians of the Galaxy in one mighty lightning bolt before an ignominious end at the hands of Winter Soldier.
