Super System 3: New figures painted, old ones touched up and my first Reaper Bones painted!

Well, got a majority of my figures done up for now, I do plan to add some stuff to the bases later like some garbage and newspaper to add some depth to the figures character. Here is what we got so far!

Figure: Reaper Bones Clay Golem
Character Name: Unknown (considering Brawn, Bicep or Slaughterhouse)
Team: Unknown (Villain)
Comments: Well, the Hulk has bee a majority of the colors I wanted to use, so I said the hell with it I went with a mix of Foundry Mauve and purple wash to bring out the figure Some of the detail was lacking in the face and the photo didn't capture the green paints that contrasts against the purple. To me he looks like a huge grape!  If you can't guess his powers, super strength and tough!

Figure: Reaper Bones Ghost/Banshee
Character Name: Unknown
Team: unknown (Villain more than likely)
Comments: This was me playing around with the Vallejo Jade Green, some washes and some light drybrushing.  Overall it turned out well and I intend to use her as some type of gas based bad guy (or girl in this case)

Figure: Reaper Bones Stone Golem
Character Name: Unknown
Team: Unknown at this time
Comments: I really liked this figure and wanted to try to work him into one of my teams, who I am not sure as of yet. I figure his background is his spirit was put into a golem to act as a guardian for an artifact and it was taken by someone and he is questing to try to find it (or perhaps it was destroyed and he no longer has a focus in life). I kept the color pallet simple with two greys, a black wash and a light middle gold tone.

Figure: Reaper Earth Elemental (Large)
Character Name: Bedrock
Team: Journeymen
Comments: Bedrock was fun to paint. His background is that he is perhaps one of the last survivors from his planet. When it was clear that his planet was doomed they launched several asteroids into space to seed other worlds so his race would survive. When his meteor hit Earth the rock started to meld with the ground around him allowing him to mature into a life form that used the natural elements of the planet as building blocks. Bedrock is huge, perhaps the largest of the heroes on the planet, not very agile and gentle as well as an alien you would not want to piss off as he is able to crush anything with his alien strength due to the gravity shift from his home world. What was most interesting is there is some dinosaur bones above his right shoulder and in the fluff this is more or less a tattoo in his culture as what they absorb around them makes each of them unique.

Figure: Crossover Miniatures Whiskers
Character Name: Larceny
Team: Fellowship of Evil
Comments: This was a simple head swap which is always one of my favorite aspects about Crossover Miniatures is being able to add unique personality traits with a simple swap of a head. Oddly, someone else on their site also had the same idea as me changing out the head of another of their figures Fury. She was a blast to paint and one of the first supers I finished. Her powers include invisibility and mind control. She is a professional thief and tends to avoid combat when possible.

Figure: Crossover Miniatures RamJam
Character Name: Onslaught
Team: Delirium
Comments: Another fun figure to paint and one of the early villains I started with. Onslaught has a fairly simple background as a one time pro wrestler that was banned after he was caught using steroids. He always played the persona of the bad guy and after his wife threatened to leave him he went into a rage that lead him to kill her and several police officers before he was subdued. He was later in route for his trial when a scientist broke him out of the prisoner convoy and needed him as a test subject in a super soldier experiment. The scientist sought to avoid following standard procedure on testing his new serum and needed to prove instant results to avoid loosing funding for his project. To his surprise, it worked also too well when the serum mixed with the steroids and other drugs in his system mixed turning him into a psychotic killing machine. He murdered the scientist and his assistant going on a rampage again until he was captured and sent to a mental asylum for treatment. It was then he managed to escape with some other inmates and formed a super team of insane lunatics!

Figure: Superfigs Tarantula
Character Name: Backstab
Team: Fellowship of Evil
Comments: Backstab is a close quarters assassin. He tends to use his powers of darkness to generate a field around him and his target allowing him to get close and use his touch based powers to finish off his target. He isn't one for direct confrontation and prefers to not fight fair.

Figure: Crossover Miniatures Super Soldier
Character Name: Camouflage
Team: SORTIE (US Military Super Team)
Comments: Camouflage is able to turn invisible, uses high caliber guns and uses his training as an Army Ranger to achieve his goals on a mission. He often acts as the team leader despite his independent nature.

Figure: Black Cat Bases Water Elemental
Character Name: Undertow
Comments: Undertow is of course from the Navy as part of the SORTIE team that uses superhumans from various military branches.  She was serving on a submarine when the compartment flooded and she was exposed to radiation that turned her into a water based metahuman.

Figure:  Reaper Chornoscope Zenith
Character Name: Swift (working name for now)
Team: Unknown
Comments: Another of  my early figures that will end up as a long line of super speedster figures. I rather likes his dynamic pose of running.

Figure: Crossover Miniatures Ka-Pow
Character Name: Crackshot
Team: Fellowship of Evil
Comments: Pretty much a Deadshot ripoff more than anything but still a fun figure to paint and add to the lineup!

Figure: Reaper Chronoscope Sandwoman
Character Name: Terra
Team: Unknown
Comments: I decided to go with a simple look for her of her entire body made of sand instead of her costume or other parts of her body having some flesh tones. Overall I like how she turned out, now to figure out where to put her.

Figure: Superfigs Cat
Character Name: Copycat (ironic name for their figure)
Team: Rougestar
Comments: Copycat copies powers of other metahumans and uses them to bolster her team to achieve their goals. She is a renown mimic and is known to copy other peoples personality traits as well being rather unoriginal in her own personality.

Figure: Superfigs
Character Name: MinMax
Team: Rougestar
Comments: This was a rather fun figure to paint up as it wasn't just a single figure but three! I always loved Henry Pym from the Avengers and this was one of the first figures I had to get to add to the collection.

I plan to buy a new batch of figures soon and finish off the current lot of figures as well. Plus I do have a Crossover Miniatures Kickstarter wave of figs also to arrive in August. In the future I will add more figs, stats for Supersystem 3 and more info about the teams in my universe. Stay tuned true belivers!

  1. Quite the start for SuperSystem. Bribe some of your friends with beer and pizza and get them playing! The few games I've run have met with positive reviews and I want to play some more. Just a matter of timing.
