Marvel Universe Miniatures Game - Iron Man 'Hulkbuster' Mk44

Knight Models are continuing to expand the range of miniatures for both their Batman Miniatures Game and their Marvel Universe Miniatures Game and after my recent acquisition of their X-Men Starter Set I decided to expand my options with a few more members of the X-Men faction...and then this model who is very much not an x-man apparently I'm now collecting the Avengers as well...

Hulkbuster - Blister and Insert
The individual models come in blister packs which also contain the models stat card.

Hulkbuster - Stat Card
I've taken a picture of the stat card so you can see the quality and overall look as well as including a picture of the official version downloaded from the Knight Models website in case any of the info is obscured on the card version.

Iron Man 'Hulkbuster' Mk44 is affiliated with the 'Avengers' and is of course also a 'Hero'.
Unlike the 30mm and some of the 40mm models that come with textured bases these larger models come with a standard appearance one.
Hulkbuster - Unassembled
Here's pictures of both sides of the unassembled model.

Hulkbuster - Assembled
Where the domed parts on the limbs meet the indentations in the main body may need some clean up in order to get a good fit but fortunately the few places that aren't a perfect fit are where the heavy armour segments join so it looks just fine. The model will also need some mould lines removing and this can be simply done with either a sharp blade or a decent file though be careful not to remove any detail while doing so.

The model also overlaps the base very slightly which is why I made mine a bit more scenic though there are no doubt other solutions.

The model has a choice of hands so you can choose between open handed 'repulsor' mode or clenched fist versions. As you can see from the pictures above I used one of each. Here's some pictures of both options...


Hulkbuster - Other Views
Here's a close-up of the model and a multiple angle view.

Hulkbuster - Comic Outfits
If you happen to be looking for colour scheme inspiration then you have a wide variety of red, gold...or red and gold to choose from...

Should you be interested in this set or any other models from the Marvel Universe Miniatures Game factions then this page here will let you know what models are available for each faction.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
