My friend (and Geekshow MVP) Rebecca Frost was talking about Gloomhaven one day, and I kind of lost my mind. I had to paint them. Why? Well, I had never seen them before. Here was a game set in the fantasy genre that I had never seen, let alone painted.
Luckily, Rebecca didn’t call the police, and I was able to get started on the first batch of six figs. I don’t know what they are, who they are, or why they are, but they are a lot of fun to paint!
First up, a badass lady with a couple of axes. She reminds me of a classic orc, but I think her skin is made of stone or bark!
Next up is a bard, but I think she might also be a plant person:
I know a Rogue when I see one!
I think the next two are druid/ranger types. I might also be waaaay off here, but they both fit a nature theme:
The last one in the first batch looks like a Paladin. We’ll have to see!
I have another five of Rebecca’s figs, and I need to get them done soon, too. There are a TON of Gloomhaven minis, so this project should keep me busy a while.
It’s interesting painting board-game miniatures. They still have a lot of detail, but the need to keep the poses static to keep production costs down makes a mini that’s a lot easier to paint. For the simple joy of putting paint to plastic, this has been a pretty fun project!
