Everyone's a hero in their own way...

 Don't you recognize the lyrics of a song...?

No. I see.

Well, let me explain then. Funny supes thing today.
Joss Whedon went on superheros before The Avengers. You didn't know that? Then you seriously MUST have a look at Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog:

Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day. You have to, trust me.
Once you've gone through the shock of trying to discern WTF is that, you'll kindly understand I had no choice, I needed some minis.
Fortunately, Hasslefree is the answer every geek needs. For almost anything ;). They recently produced this:

Cpt. Hammer 'Sgt. Spanner'
As soon as I saw the model I got it! But what would I use as evil Dr. Horrible? Again I browsed on Hasslefree and got this other mini:

I bought just the plain metal, not the green stuff
And so I got the man who holds a PhD in horribleness!

Pretending to handle the keys of a shiny New Australia
His nemesis looks like this once painted:

These are not the hammer
So here they are, ready for action:

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do...
I'm afraid that you most probably won't get the jokes here if you're not familiar with the show, sorry. Seriously, give it a try ;)
The minis are just for collection, but of course they are totally usable for gaming. Any musings on that?
