Hey Jamey/Scythe Team,

Is it at all in the works via a stretch goal or add-on to have the faction representatives pre-painted?

How about the mechs?

Thanks,

Max

I've seen Jamey mention a few times that they're avoiding that due to logistical reasons. They look much nicer, but apparently it's much more complicated and time intensive to get them pre-painted.

Good question! Having prepainted miniatures would have been a completely different process starting back in April when we started designing the miniatures. It was at that point that we decided to go with unpainted miniatures, and that path has taken us to today when we've started creating the moulds. Backers can exert their creativity and paint their own miniatures when they get the game next summer.

I think he put it on the wrong category. This is not rules related, obviously.

As a miniature painter, the last thing I would want are pre-painted minis. Pre-paints would clash so hard with the natural/muted colors of the game.

What are the rules on painted miniatures?
How does their camo paint affect gameplay?

As a non painter, I would have given a lot for painted minis.

TheMiniaturesPage has a forum of painting services. I think BGG has geeklist of one as well.

For "a lot" you can get really nicely painted minis from a third party painting service.

Bye

Could a stretch goal be a guide for painting the minis? Or maying commissioning Sorastro to do a youtube tutorial for it?

Could you include cardboard stands to replace the miniatures as a stretch goal?
That way we dont have the unpainted/painted dilemma. No money wasted on moulds and more fantastic colored artwork.

/sarcasm?

If you hit the red 'X' next to the thumb button at the top one of the choices is "Wrong Forum". I think if enough people do that it can get moved by an admin.

I'm going to be looking to pay someone to paint my small world designers version and this game. I'll possibly look at testing my skills on a certain other project if I get some extra junk mini's sent my way, which I hope happens.

His tutorials are fantastic. I don't own Imperial Assault but I've learned a lot (as an amateur miniature painter) from his work.

If anyone's interested:

For those of you who don't paint minis, put would like the Scythe minis to 'pop' a little more on the board, I'd recommend looking into "Dry Brushing" and "Ink Washing". Both techniques are really simple, don't require much in the way of supplies, and really bring out the detail in plastic miniatures. It won't be a colourful as painting all the details separately but it's leaps and bounds above bare plastic and it's easy!
