I have been searching for a place to either paint my figures from Heart of Glorm and/or make me a set of the following pieces (Elite rats, All the bosses of both games, and possibly some tokens from both games). I have searched some forums, but most of the posts are outdated and the places that sold these miniatures are no longer available (such as the ones on Plaid Hat Games).

If anyone has any tips or suggestions, that would be wonderful.

Thanks,

The replacements for Vanestra and Scitterclak are easily found here on the forum.

Good luck

Shapeways actually ships from wherever is closest to you, I'm pretty sure. Mine shipped from the US as far as I know.

OP, It may be hard for a painter to quote/agree to a price without a clearer idea of what figures you want to have painted. I'd recommend searching through the forums and seeing what other people have done, so you can have an exact idea of what you want someone to do, what models you will need to buy, and where you can buy them from.

Suitable models for Elite Rats are available in Tail Feathers, the 2-player tactical miniatures game set in the Mice and Mystics universe. Considering that the M&M minis aren't available for individual sale, it's probably cheaper to just buy the entire game of tail feathers, rather than buying another copy of M&M and doing the conversions on those rats. You'd also get a rat that could probably be used for Vurst, and 6 mouse rangers that you can use in an M&M game. There's also a crow-type bird you could use for the old crow, not that he really needs a mini, but it's a nice bonus.

As Marco pointed out, there are a good deal of 3-D printable models on Shapeways:
Roolz's work
Sammael's work

I'm using a reaper bones spider-centaur-type model for Vanestra. Their Ankheg model would make a decent Skitterclack.

None of this is going to be cheap though. Have you considered how much you are willing/able to pay for this? On top of the cost of the figures, you may need to pay more for conversion work and/or prepwork of 3-D printed minis. Custom conversion work takes a lot of time. The 3-D printed models will take the painter less time overall, but there is a good deal of prep-work needed to get the surface of a printed model ready for painting.

I confirm. Shapeways have operations in EU (Netherlands) and in the US. They manufacture and ship from the closest location.

Edit: there's also Virgil on shapeways who modelled great elite rats.

Reaper miniatures has some good options for that warriors (wererats) as well as giant spiders and such. Reasonably priced as well!

I am getting my custom paint set done through here: Synchroneyesspainting@gmail.com
Also bgg user Jormi_Boced is the one who does the custom paint jobs for the creator of the board game's copies, but he is more expensive.

Where on the forums are Vanestra and Skitterclak? I will use one of these suggestions for the elite rats and possibly spider. But what about the centipedes from Heart of Glorm and the rat pack peddler? Also has anyone seen a crumbles figure?

Thanks

The centipede is a pretty hard find. Took me a few months until 2 copies showed up and I snagged them. They'll probably come in stock again, or you might get lucky on eBay. The HorrorClix centipede figure is the perfect replacement for Skitter Clak and the Heart of Glorm boss. You can find it here: www.trollandtoad.com/p183431.html
Edit: actually it looks like it is available here: www.ddgamezone.com/horrorclix-nightmares-020-centip020.html I would buy 2 ASAP as you might not be able to find it for months.

Venestra: this figure works really well for me https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/spider/latest/77182

Pack Rat: you can use some green-stuff to make the bedroll. The painting service can do that as well. www.darkswordminiatures.com/shop/index.php/mole-alchemist.ht...

These last 3 are what I'd recommend as well.

The horrorclix centipede has been OOP for years. It looks like even the ddgamezone link is actually out of stock, if you try to add it to your cart.

Here is the Ankheg model I was talking about: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/ankheg/sku-down/77230

It's not perfect, but it is widely available and it's big enough in comparison to the normal centipede. There's a pathfinder "giant centipede" model that I'd avoid because unfortunately is smaller than the base game's centipede.

Wow that Ankheg model looks great, and probably is a good replacement for skorcher. I might have to snag one, although I already have 2 base game centipedes, and 2 horrorClix centipedes. I'm worried the 2 horroClix centipedes will look too similar :/

Also this post here has detailed pictures on how to change the Barrow Rats from Reaper Miniatures into Skulker Rats: http://www.plaidhatgames.com/sum_forums/showthread.php?3468-...

The minifigures from Shapeways are amazing, I received mine in about 2 weeks time.
