From SimonM - "Heroclix" 40mm Mindless Ones (49 Points)

"The Mindless Ones! They've broken through!"
These seven brutish-looking 40mm tall plastic “Wizkids” models of a Mindless One can be purchased as miniature number 05 from the Marvel “Heroclix” Giant Size X-Men range. Summoned via magic to do the bidding of others, for they have no will of their own, these extra-dimensional beings have a rocky hide and no face except a single glowing eye. “Most often seen in the employ of Dormammu” the savage humanoids were created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and made their first comic book appearance within the pages of Issue One Hundred and Twenty Seven of “Strange Tales” in December 1964.
The Mindless Ones First Appearance - "Strange Tales" #127 (December 1964)
Due to these figures each requiring an incredibly simple paint-job, and having previously painted two of Dormammu's behemoths before for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, this particular project was rather straightforward. However, it did once again give me the opportunity to try out the combination of “Vallejo” USA Olive Drab and “Citadel” Nuln Oil. The Mindless Ones' cyclopean eyes were then subsequently ‘picked out’ using a combination of “Vallejo” Heavy Red and the “Citadel” glaze, Bloodletter.
"Now nothing matters! We are all doomed!"

First, I do apologize, Simon.  I missed this and another post from Simon as my Friday morning report time changed to Thursday evening...

These fellows I do remember, a nice simple villain needing pounding by I intrepid heroes. These fellows caused all sorts of mayhem. 
They pop up very well with your brush, Simon. They will make nice badges in several other games as well!  Great Job!
