Crisis Protocol: Quinjet

Crisis Protocol has a bunch of nicely themed terrain sets. Some of them are a little bit big for playability, but do a lot of work to sell the setting. The Quinjet is one such example.

My buddy very generously gave me this set for Christmas. I quickly got it painted for play, though it’s taken a while to get it posted here.

The main color is a Turbo Dork colorshift, which helps to give large flat surfaces some variation. I also drybrushed on the edges to bring out the shape.

I wish I had the foresight to weight down the nose. There is a lot more model behind the landing gear than in front of it. The bit of ground keeps it balanced, but it would be nice to let it stand freely.

Crisis Protocol: Beast and Mystique

This box may be a less-than-optimal pick for a limited X-Men force. But Beast is cool so it doesn’t matter.


Beast comes with head/arm variants for angry mode and bookish mode. I like the idea of him (literally) hanging out instead of fighting. I asked my kid what book he should be reading. She immediately answered Harry Potter. So there we go.


Mystique is not X-Men affiliated. But the relatively open faction rules of Crisis Protocol means that doesn’t have to be a problem.

Crisis Protocol: Storm and Cyclops

If you want an X-Men force in Crisis Protocol, it’s hard to ignore this box. It has both of the affiliation leaders. So it was an easy decision.


I love this blue and yellow. It screams the 90s cartoon, which is my first memory of the X-Men.


Storm is another super tall model. The lightning support reminds me of some Games Workshop models. I hope it doesn’t get caught on foam and snap off. Until then, it gives a good floaty feeling.
