MCP: She-Hulk

Back in early May I posted about a painting contest over at Fury’s Finest discord. That contest was to paint up a leader for any affiliation, I chose She-Hulk. I don’t have a strong affinity for the character, she seemed like bending to the early “girl power” trends of the early 80’s, and I was nearly done with Comic-books by that time, having found Dungeons&Dragons a couple of years earlier. What I do like about the character for the game is she gives us a leader for the A-force, and I have 4 other members just from the Core Box and other sets I picked up along the way; she also adds to Avengers and S.H.E.I.L.D.

A “picture of the model’s state before the contest began” was required, and since I though a picture of an unopened box would be boring, I set out the sprue and box contents:

I tried to go a lighter shade of green than her bigger cousin, Bruce, with more yellow-greens and a yellow ink wash to tie all the constant together. I also opted to go with a reddish girder, as many building I-beams are coated with anti-corrosive treatments to extend their lifetime, especially if they are not in a place where they can be regularly painted (like bridges and other structures).

And my small nod to social justice, which seems sorely missing in America today, I free-hand painted a Nike “swoosh” onto each sneaker. I picked Nike for two reasons. One I love their shoes and pretty much wear my Nikes everyday at work. And two, Nike stood with Colin Kaepernick when the NFL black-balled him for protesting racism in America. It’s my little “Fuck you” to all new-Nazis now stealing the conservative mantel – especially those evangelic types!

  1. You’ve done a great job there, well done. I love the green of her hair, it looks suitable for the character without drawing attention from the iconic skin.

    It’s been a while since I played A-Force, I definitely need to get them on the table again. She-Hulk makes a brilliant partner for Angela, who can jam her down the throat of the other team highly effectively using the Special Delivery card.

    1. Thanks for the kind words! Hopefully, I’ll have enough other models to do an A-Force list, haven’t started introducing tactics cards to our games, yet, but that combo does sound nasty!
