Confronting the brute strength of Buzzcut is scary. A Hobgoblin Hulk is a fright to all. But for the holiday of haunt, what if there was an entire team of terror?
Happy Halloween Coaches! Before you lies a morgue of marvels (pun intended). The BreadDoll presents a Mantic-Marvel crossover; THE LEGION OF MONSTERS!
Originally conceived as a ghastly gang of coaching assistants, this editor-in-chief collected a batch of Heroclix miniatures for easy conversion. A few witching hours later, and their true intent was clear. The monsters needed to play!
Custom teams are silly. It’s the flaccid writing of fandom and fanatics. And yet, here’s a DreadBall team of Silver Age monsters. Why? WHY?! A horror hound at heart, this BreadDoller just wanted some menacing coaches on the sidelines. After the little terrors were beautified*, and ready for a roster – I couldn’t stop wondering. What if Dracula was a DreadBall player? Werewolf by Night? The thought experiment reached an inevitable and creepy conclusion. The character stats are wonky, buy thematic. They’re over-powered, but not without vulnerabilities. Fun? Absolutely.
Beautiful creatures? It can be done. Heroclix are numerous, and with limitations set; inexpensive. Cut ’em off their base, mount ’em to your painting support, and spray ’em with a Matt varnish. The varnish will serve as a transparent “primer” for your custom brush work. They need the attention, because their pre-paint jobs are truly terrifying. Nevertheless, don’t strip ’em. Just use the pre-paint horror show as an undercoat.
