Here are the close ups. Sorry they are blurry. I'm not a expert when it comes to taking pics. If anyone has any advice on how I can get the blurry out let me know. I also don't do a good job of painting eyes so thats why some of them don't have eyes.

Does any one think the Watchmen characters will be added to the DC hero clix line up?

Dunno but they wouldn't be very good would they? Apart from Dr Manhattan of course. And whoever has him, wins!

Well, I haven't actually played them, but Nite Owl II would basically be Batman, and Rorschach would be a good brawler, I mean they each have "powers" but not in the conventional sense

I am a diehard miniatures wargamer and toy soldier collector (multiple eras) and have recently pulled out my set of WATCHMEN 25mm miniature figures issued by Grenadier back in the late 1980s as a tie-in to the DC heroes RPG.

http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o306/piper909/Watmenfigbox.jpg

http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o306/piper909/Watmenfigsint.jpg

I was considering selling them, as they are rare and collectible, but I'm now leaning toward keeping them and painting them up for display (I'm a very good painter). Maybe I could even get some tabletop use out of them someday in some sci-fi miniatures game.

Something that bugged me was the lack of many Watchmen universe villains -- but the other day I came across Pulp Figures manufacturer and discovered that some of his 28mm figures would make excellent Watchmen villains, both common and costumed. Check out the ranges here:

http://www.pulpfigures.com/main.php

especially the "Personalities", "Gangland Justice", "Weird Menace" and "Germans"

The PWM-1 set Weird Villains includes a superb Screaming Skull type. PWM-12 Mad Science I shows a possible Spaceman (with ray weapon). The Gangland Justice range includes 1930s-40s-era thugs, including some figures in masks (or you could paint domino masks on them), suitable for the Underboss and his ilk in particular. PGJ-13 shows a magician that might double for Moloch in fancy stage attire. Lots of colorful Nazis among this catalog. And look at PGS-24, Zeppelin Troopen Gasmasks 2 -- the central figure looks just like the movie version of Captain Axis, with the addition of an overcoat. I am really inspired to pick up a bunch of these and start painting, and make a special place in my collection for the world of the Watchmen.

I'm open for suggestions for Captain Carnage...
