(sorry for my poor english, I'm not totally fluent with the Shakespeare language... and sorry too if I'm not in the right place to post this subject blush )

Hi all,

I wonder if lots of TI3's fan have painted all of their troups (or part of them) to make the game even more realistic and cool ?
If "YES", could you show me the result of your work please and give me some precious advice, internet links, or others informations ?
(For exemple : the time for one set of color you take, the type of varnish -Gloss or Matte-, your colors'choices ..etc)

I'm very interested by this because I love this game (totally addicted blush )and I wonder if I will not try to paint all of this stuff (or make it paint)

Note that I've already browse all the available pictures here but this is all pictures of the Boardgame itself or not high definitions pictures

And, to finish, could you please post at the same time pictures of your painted Fleets to see the amazing result ?
Just for the eye's pleasure and to have some ideas to paint or make paint my own fleets

Thanks in advance to all of you,
+

There are several painted minis shown in the gallery. Have you looked at those?

Hello,

Yes yes I have browse all this pictures but I don't have really found what I was looking for. For example "Blue fleet" on a "Blue box" is not really easy to see. And, this is the only painted Fleet we can see here, 'cause all the other pictures are (cool) pictures of the Boardgame. blush

Anyone else ?

I'm sorry. I'm not really into painting. Besides, I think that TI3 isn't a very popular game for painting the peices. Of course, if this was War of the Ring, you'd have dozens of answers. You can hardly get a look at what the peices look like out if the box on the gallery.
Sorry no one could help you.

It's OK Jordan, don't worry
I thought there was more Twilight Imperium's Fans on BGG cause it's a very huge, very good, very cool, very interesting Game which has its own community all over the world (look at FGG's forum for exemple)
I also have "War of the Ring" but it's not the same games. WotR is quite a good game but not enough for me to motive me to paint it or make paint it.. while TI3 kiss

Thanks for your answers

Re: [Twilight Imperium 3] Do you have Painted your TI3s piec
I have drybrushed all of my pieces in silver paint, which looks best on black, and ended up looking pretty bad on yellow. I think it's a cool effect because it brings out the details and it looks like a metal piece painted the color. I'm also trying to paint them with little windows.

Check out the image in full size for a better view.

I spray painted all the minis black first. Then, I used three progressively lighter shades of each color. I picked out details (windows, guns, etc.) with an "off setting" color. I finally spray painted the minis with a dull (matte) laquer.

The "flying" stands are GW clear plastic flying stands, which I spray painted black along with the minis.

Hope this helps!

Good Gaming~! Mick
