The Devil made me do it.

Guess what series I’ve finally gotten around to watching?


I recently bought myself a really good Daredevil Heroclix, to use in an inspired, fun little squad I’ve thought of, but the model was a horrible bright red. Yeah, I know, I know, “That’s how he’s supposed to look!”. I just prefer the modern, armoured Man Without Fear from the current series, ok? If I was going to be hiding in shadows and dodging bullets I probably wouldn’t vote for bright red Lycra either, and trust me, I know a bit about wearing it.

I started out trying to replicate the crimson/black pattern that The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen wears, but soon discovered that the cool action pose, whilst making him look awesome, doesn’t lend itself to the exact style of it; Parts that are solid metal would need to be bending. Instead, I simply went with something “in the style of” the series. Pretty pleased with it. Even if I did go in blind (Sorry).


As a side note, this era of Heroclix (around “Incredible Hulk”) used a horrible shiny paint that is almost impossible to adhere other paint to. He currently has three layers of maroon on him, and it rubs off super easily, so he’s going to have to have a nice coat of varnish to hold him together. I don’t want him shiny, so I’ll probably go for a Matte (Murdock) (Sorry again).
