Hello Everyone,

We've finally started to paint and base the figures so we can kick our game to a higher level.

This topic is just to show our progress! Hope you like them!

Such a nice base. Use some matte varnish, the figures are really glossy.

Haha I can explain the gloss. I took the pictures right after painting, so the paint was still wet . I also put them under a very bright light in order to get a good photo last night.

Very very Nice! Where are you getting all the extra bits for the bases, are you making those yourself?

The red book seems to have a Chaos star, so perhaps it's some kind of Warhammer bits/scenery?

They are nicely painted. But, and I dont wish to be pedantic, but I will, they are figures for Mansions of Madness. Emphasis on Mansion. Why does everyone who bases their figures feel the need to dump them in a field?

Surely any mansion must have a grand lawn? Otherwise, where else does one take one's afternoon tea?

Nice paint jobs

I buy them from a local Scenery website here in Holland. I believe the decorations are called tabletop art.

I totally see what you mean. This was the one thing we've asked ourselfs before we started painting and basing. The main reason we've went with the outside theme, is because we also play Arkham Horror and we use the same characters for that game. Mansions also features a fair amount of outside locations, especially with the Call of the Wild expansion. Then again, if I went with the inside theme, it wouldn't make sence anymore if the investigators where outside. I think it's a matter of personal preference in this case .

Here are some more painted investigators!





Thanks for all the feedback!

These are very well done! I just started painting the monsters last night, so we'll see how they turn out!

I'm not certain about what to do with my bases either. I have all of the exterior stuff for basing -- but I was thinking I might try and do the black/white checkerboard pattern on the bases, as several of the mansion tiles have that on the floor.

Or, I may just paint them black...maybe black gravel?

You can also just use clear bases.

I *still* haven't tried these out, but the price is good: https://www.amazon.com/Beadaholique-100-Piece-Stickers-Bottl...

"Inside or outside" *is* the age-old question for miniatures. You can also use magnets to swap bases, or drill holes.

Even with inside and outside, you have to decide between street vs. grass, and wooden planks vs. tiles. goo

Wow, kind of wish you hadn't told me. That site could cost me *a lot* of money!

I just stick with the generic black bases. My OCD has a fit if there are grass bases in side, or flooring outside.

Just realized that you could also leave the bases detachable (unpainted) for the first game, record where the miniatures show up in the scenario, then paint the miniature base to match where the miniature first appears. No guarantee that that the base will match the next time the miniature is on the board, of course.

Also, for NPCs, RAFM and Reaper Miniatures have 1920's investigators if you want to do *more* painting. goo
