Hi all,

Due to bad hand tremor I'm only able to paint using spray paint. For some games it's been fine. Mostly zombie games that have a lot of minis. I'd love to personalize this game a little for us but would hate to ruin the aesthetic with a bad paint job. IF I was to paint the Minions, what colors?

Thanks for your help!

the colors are up to you... seem like minions' robes are red, but go for a mixture... some red, some blue, etc..

no matter what colors you choose, make sure to wash/dip them afterwards to give them some depth.

The model is half metallic, half red, with a grey base. So a single color isn't going to be easy. I did some further painting, but here's a completely black spray paint, followed by an overhead red color spray "primer and paint", then a wash with Army Painter Quickshade Red Tone. (Final pic here, and I still need to write a paint tutorial: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3255071/sam-and-max)

The friendly color is blue. Blue and green are the easiest colors to work with. I'd pick whatever color you like and use a colored spray paint and a wash. See this tutorial with green: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1270004/painting-tutorial-t...
