I split them up into different colours to represent different crews attending the fire.
First time painting figures for a board game. Really enjoyed it..... now I just have to get good at painting.

Wow, these are FANTASTIC!

I'm tempted to paint my set. Did you use the standard model paint or something different?

Thanks for that. Pretty happy with them. To be fair they aren't highly detailed so I assume they are an easy miniature to paint.

I used Citadel Paints for them.

Bishop I briefly saw the flag on your avatar, and was about to ask whether you'd do a set for payment, but then realized you are on the wrong side of the Tasman (or perhaps I am)! I just don't have time..



Nice work!

Let me pass on a bit of "wisdom" a good friend of mine gave me a couple decades ago about miniatures painting:

All you ever see on any miniature you paint is what went wrong. Since you're not aware of that looking at other people's work, most other people seem to be better painters than you are. Keep in mind that they're looking at your work the same way.

Obviously, as you paint more miniatures, your skill should improve, but there isn't anything wrong with these!

That's really true. I definitely look at them and think that. That's really good advise, thank you.
I didn't mean in my OP that I wasn't happy with the results or that the figures weren't good - because I am happy with them. Just that now I've lifted the lid on painting for the first time I know I've got a lot to learn to progress to harder models........ quite daunting really. Been looking in the painting forum....... sigh..... a LOT to learn - which is awesome.
