With Cody's small P&P expansion of Xia, I had to step out on a limb and try something new. I've never painted miniatures before. I asked Cody for advice on painting minis and asked what he would recommend for paints and brushes. I took his advice, bought the three new ships off Shapeways, bought paint and brushes, and painted them up today.

I'm not going to lie, for my first time ever painting minis, I was happy with the turnout:




I took some liberties on the colors (though I did keep it close to the images provided).

Vagabond:



Skimmer:



Carriak:



And here's all three with how they look on the board:



They may not be the greatest, but I would say they're good enough for me and my friends. Overall this was a new and fun experience for me. I can't wait for more to come out. And now that I have at least an idea of what I'm doing when it comes to painting minis, I may have my friend, who's good with 3D models, help me design my own ships, print them off, and paint them. We'll see what the future holds for my copy of Xia.

Thank you, Cody! Xia is still one of the coolest games in my collection!
