    Or a little disk shaper dial type counter that can sit underneath the mini. 🤔

    It’s Always Sunny in Gloomhaven

    @Matt John S, I’ve seen that some peeps out there use other minis, including from Conan, instead of the cardboard standees for Gloomhaven. I might follow suit. I’m currently assembling one of those storage solutions for organizing Gloomhaven. I got the one from Daedalus instead of the one from Broken Token. It has a better look, doesn’t result in cover lift, and has nice etchings on the side so you know what everything is. I’ve also ordered a couple sets of 12-sides dice to use for tracking hit points for the baddies. I’ve seen others do that, and it looks like a better solution instead of having to refer back to the monsters card and count up tokens.

    It’s Always Sunny in Gloomhaven

    Agreed @garbetsp... These are a real mixed bag of minis, and very different in every respect from most of the other minis I’ve painted. They are cartoonish, with a pretty wide range of quality and detail. Some I kinda like, others not so much. For example, the Spellweaver looks ok from the front or back, but at an angle you see that she was almost sculpted in 2D. She’s super flat, with no dimensionality to her. Of course, the minis in Gloomhaven are really an afterthought, and the creator of the game even acknowledged that he didn’t really want minis in the game at first. His desire to create a more Euro style game is evident throughout, even down to the art for the components and game board tiles. I’m looking at adding more bling to the game by building scenery using dental stone and silicone molds from Hirst Arts. All that said, I haven’t got it to the table yet, but I think we are going to love playing it!
  5. I’m working to get the 6 starting heroes from Gloomhaven painted up so I can get that beast of a game to the table. It is interesting to tackle some High-Fantasy minis after the hundreds of Low-Fantasy minis I’ve painted for Conan. As per my usual MO, I’m trying to follow the game art in my color selections. It isn’t easy with this game though, since the game art has so many lighting effects and some fairly unusual color schemes going on. I’m fairly happy with them; not destined for a display case, but good enough for my game table!
  6. I finished these peons awhile back, after I wrapped up the Winged Ape, but they are so beige and boring I never posted a pic... Well, here they are in all their, um, glory? I wanted to wrap them up quickly, so after priming in white, I used a small can of tan spray paint to give them all a base color, and then quickly hit them with varying skin tones and a few details. I had them all done in very short order. Nothing special, but hey, they are just members of the wretched masses after all. 😉

    Shinobi7 acquire Conan rights

    Yup @garbetsp. I’ve got entirely too much Conan stuff. A full collection of every English language Conan comic in existence, books, toys, statues, video games, board games, cards, etc, etc... I was actually happy that Dark Horse wrapped up their comics run, primarily because it never regained it’s footing after the execrable Queen of the Black Coast series (ugh, worst Conan comics ever!), but also because I don’t really want any more Conan stuff on my shelves. But, now that Marvel is back in the Conan game, I have no choice but to dive in. I hope it’s a return to the excellent quality of the earlier Marvel and DH efforts.
  8. A few weeks back I thought I was all done painting my All-In Conan pledge.... But I completely forgot about some remaining pieces of scenery that I had primed months ago. Well, NOW I’m truly all done with my painting chores for this game. Just in time too, as my copy of Nemesis from Awaken Realms arrived today... So, leaving behind the distant Hyborian age I’m now blasting off into the future with brush in hand! side note: If you plan to paint the doors, I’d say it is probably easier to paint them unassembled. Also, there is a notch on the inside of the door frame that holds the door shut, you might want to cut it off or sand it down before painting; It’ll just chip off the paint if you don’t.

    Shinobi7 acquire Conan rights

    I’d like to say that I won’t be buying whatever Shinobi comes out with.... But, as a Conan collector, I might be unable to resist. It sounds like they are doing a miniature game first, and then later a card game. I’ll look at it all with an unbiased eye, even though I’m more than happy with Monolith’s excellent game. Honestly, I have to wonder if Monolith will even make a big effort to get the license back after Shinobi is done releasing their products. It sounds like there is at least a bit of bad blood between Monolith and CPI at this point.

    Gates done... Might have to redo the bases for the Accolytes... 🤔

    Yellow Sign Desecration Tokens... I’ll prolly splatter them with some blood as a finishing touch.

    Getting all the extras for Cthulhu Wars knocked out over the holidays. They have a unique ‘first player marker’, it’s a bust of Cthulhu Mythos creator H.P. Lovecraft... I tried to get a marble-ish look to it. It really makes more sense to give it a look akin to a sculpture, versus painting his head and shoulders as a human likeness with flesh color etc.

    Compendium 2En & 3EN.

    I think that Monolith can still help publishing the fan-made Compendiums. They aren’t ‘products’ that they are ‘selling’. They are just collecting money to offset printing and shipping costs. But I dunno...
  14. Nice work dude. Love the basing too!

    Painting Minis

    I often paint the color I want, hit it with shader, and then drybrush or carefully re-paint the area to get back my desired color AND get the shading effect.
