I painted my starting class heroes today. I did them much like I do the Reaper minis for D&D. I mostly used basic techniques as I am devoid of any real talent. I based my color scheme off of the picture on the character mat, but I still like to do a Google search to get a few ideas.

Now that I am done, I would say the Google image search was more help. There is more detail in the picture than on the minis. After priming, I did a basecoat in a dark color, wash all of them in black, then drybrush more than I usually do. The only thing left was to dot a few eyes, nose holes for the Brute, then I put down a thick coat on the base with the closest color I had to the character mat for each character. I finish all my minis with a gloss finish for protection. I was a little out of practice as I have painted nothing but Arcadia Quest chibis for the better part of six months.

Overall, they look pretty good. I have the broken token insert coming later in the week and I've been trying to put off breaking everything out until I had a proper storage solution. With that said, I can not wait to do nothing but Gloomhaven next week.

Rob from the dice tower has a good video on two of the starter characters. The video says part one, but as far as I can tell, there is no second part.

General guidelines, though, are to prime it, paint the hardest to reach parts first, water down your paints (if you are using acrylics), do multiple layers, use a wash with a darker color to bring out the details, dry brush (usually with a lighter color), and finally to seal it when you’re done (I use a polyurethane spray). I was amazed how well mine turned out using these simple rules.

I have two of them painted so far.





I don't own an air brush, so the Spellweaver's orbs were painted by wet-blending about seven different shades to form a gradient.

This guy does a pretty good job of explaining what he's doing. A beginner could follow it pretty easily.

How did you prime these? Zenithal? Or just black? They are both phenomenal. thumbsup
