Painted Juggernaut

Do you know who I am? Yes, this is the Juggernaut mini for Marvel Crisis Protocol. As I’ve remarked before, one of the many strengths of MCP is that the characters play the way you feel they ought to based on their comics. So Juggernaut has a lot of mobility, can push through and destroy terrain and is hard to kill. His damage output is OK but compared to others in his cost bracket I’m definitely not picking him to fight people. I actually think that his main use is on Extraction plays where he can get either the single objective (the Skrull or the Kree Power Core) and be hard to take it off, or even better in the Wakandan Herbs mission where his extraordinary movement tricks can give you a big head start on scoring.

Juggernaut is one character where I really struggled to pick a colour scheme. The card art has him in the classic brown suit, which I find quite boring. I’ve seen a lot of people give him the yellow prison suit from Deadpool 2, which is a pretty cool idea but I didn’t really care for it in practice. I searched through some google images and found a costume in shades of red which, admittedly, I also didn’t really love but felt that I could live with. However, when I actually got started applying paint to the big chap I found that I really liked the way that the dark red and light red worked together so I’m more than happy with the result.

I also am very pleased with the way that the traffic light Juggernaut is wielding has turned out.

Next on the painting table: Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme.

  1. I do like the color combo of dark and bright reds. I always think if him as a reddy brown and red. Like you I tend to do lots if internet searching for comic references as apposed to what the Game card art gives us.

    • Thank you Eric. I think that the most common costume for him is a rather drab brown which I just never got on with properly. I have also seen quite a lot of Juggernauts painted up in the bright yellow prison suit from the Deadpool movie, but somehow that just wasn’t what I wanted him to look like.

      • I think I remember him in the red-brown color suit. Should I eventually pick him up, there will just have to be lots of research, but I fear I’ll fall back on the classic X-men comic book looks!

  2. Yea,I think you got the right colors on him. I like the dark brown sometimes, but it works better in the comic than on a mini. I like that street light too! 🙂

    • Thanks Faust. You’re right, sometimes the stuff that looks good in 2D just doesn’t work well on a mini. The traffic light is one thing that I can say came out exactly as I had intended, I’m really pleased with it.

  3. That’s really cool mate, nice one!!

  4. Another dynamic pose. Nicely done. He looks huge. 🙂

  5. I’m glad you went with the classic color as Juggs just looks right that way! His face came out really nicely too. The expression is perfect in my book! I can’t help but hear the voice of Juggernaut from the X-Men movies now where he says his iconic line. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about!
