WizKids look to be producing a new range of Unpainted figures for their exceptionally well-loved game, HeroClix. The site Figures.com looked at one of these new sets for the X-Men which is coming out soon which uses the new Deep Cut and Pre-Primed method we've seen WizKids use for both Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder already.

DeepCut HeroClix #1 - WizKids

The range follows the same format as their traditional HeroClix releases in premise but of course, you now have primed plastic (and clear plastic) miniatures which you can paint up however you like. We've been talking about how bad the pre-paints are for HeroClix over the years and whilst they have improved in part they are still no match to some of the work hobbyists could do themselves. So, it's nice to see them offering up an entirely different option for fans of the HeroClix game.

DeepCut HeroClix #2 - WizKids

Scott Rubin has shown off a lot of the figures in more detail over on Figures.com and it's interesting to see the way they've come to life when someone has added their own take on colour schemes and the like. There are still a few issues here and there as Scott Rubin points out in his lengthy run-down on the product like mould lines and such but nothing that you can't clean up with a good sharp knife.

Of course, the detail isn't going to be as sharp as on some other miniatures out there in various scales but if you're interested in painting up your own HeroClix models to suit your image of particular superheroes and mutants this seems like a good move from WizKids.

I would be fascinated to see what a very talented painter could do with these and if there's enough detail there for someone to make them seriously pop.

What do you think of the idea?
