Batman Miniature Game Cuchillo

Second model from the Bird and Mercenaries set is Cuchillo he seem is armed with a knife and is on a par rep wise with McGregor the machete armed merc from the Bane starter pack. Where this knife guy truly differs is in his traits. Cuchillo has Stealth so models have to be within 20cm to see him and he also has tireless which means he can perform a run by only using a special counter instead of a special and a movement. Making him very fast. Give him the backpack equipment for carrying loot for free and he is the perfect loot grabber for the Bane crew.

To represent his stealth I kept his colours to blacks and greys.

  1. Good work as usual mate. I like the white on his face mask - is that canon or a personal addition?

    1. Cheers Dai. It was on the studio paintjob. Its very similar to Bane's mask. Originally I was going to leave it off but then decided to add it in at the end as I felt another colour needed adding in.

  2. I like the simplicity of this one, both in sculpt and the way you've painted him. Nice one.

    1. Cheers Kieron I must admit he was very easy to paint. I am finding School boy irritating however his vest is harder to get to.

  4. Excellent work on the painting mate, and he certainly did his job when you used him. :)

    Definitely an upgrade on McGregor IMHO as he gains better/clearer purpose. :)

    1. Thanks Leon. Yeah indeed I'd use McGregor to go after other henchmen now I think.

  5. Sounds like a very useful fella. Strange pose on the sculpt though

    1. I don't think its strange looks like he has sneaked upto someone and is about to deliver a nasty blow from behind.

    1. Thanks Suber. I think he has like a camouflage scheme on the studio job but I decided against it and went with trying to keep it simple.

  8. It's tough painting blacks. You did a good job despite that fact.

    1. Thanks very much I've got some varying shades of grey and use washes to tone down the highlights a bit. Experimenting mostly but it seems to work ok :)

  9. He sounds like a right nasty piece of work to me; a 2-bit knifeman and thief :-) .
