We've been playing a bit of Heroquest around here over the last few months, and I finally decided that it was about time we did it properly.

So, over the next ... well, however long it takes, since I don't get a lot of free time to paint these days ... I'll be hopefully turning these:

... into something a little more colourful.


Coming up first: Skeletons!

Skeletons:

Quick and easy paintjob... White basecoat, then a coat of Rotting Flesh and a good wash with Devlan Mud. Scyth coated in black, a coat of Tin Bitz followed by a light drybrush of Boltgun Metal. Base painted Neutral Grey (Vallejo), drybrushed with Light Grey, and then washed with Black Ink.

I finished off the base edges with Rotting Flesh. This will carry over onto the other Undead, for easy visual identification on the board. Other monsters will have different coloured base edges.

Great to see the old game, I remember those plastics being some of my very 1st painted monster minis. Ah good times, they were often our D&D bad guys.

Awww. Heroquest brings back nice memories. Nice to see them with a good paint job on them. It's now skewed my memories to a nice warm fuzzy place. Are you planning anything special for the hero characters?

Not sure about the heroes yet. I'll paint up the regular models for completeness, but at the moment we generally use D&D models for the Wizard, Barbar and Elf, and a GW Dwarf Slayer for the Dwarf. That's partly just because they're painted, though. The guys may be a little more interested in using the original models when they're finished :)

Looking forward to seeing all these minis painted mate as it sure brings back memories for me as it was the introduction to painting and the hobby of GW(very good days).

I was blown away with the painted figs on the inside side of the box which Mike Mcvey painted then and i still think were some of his best painted minis :)

Looking forward to any updates

Wicked! Ah, the memories...hehe. I played heroquest heaps with my dad when I was a kid!

And yeah tanath, I agree, those painted pics on the box were awesome! I looked at them as virtually an unattainable goal in painting, haha... :)

I'll be interested to see more as you paint them! The skeletons look excellent. I see you've got some of those 'ogres' from the expansion, or whatever it was, too....cool!

This is my list as well.
I picked up a nearly complete Heroquest for $2.50 a few months back.
There is a lot of stuff ahead of it in the queue.....

haha! Maybe it's just me but I can't get the imagery of a broadway musical out of my head. Just the way they're all lined up there. And the 'canes' and what not ^^; Braaains: The Musical

Mostly painted in base colours and then hit with a coat of Devlan Mud, with a few bits and pieces picked out afterwards.

Very nice. I am a very slow painter, and have never tried to do a bang-up speed-painted army, but I can certainly spot a good job when I see one. Well done! Can't wait to see the rest!

Mine too... :)

Although mine was a bit of a mix of gloss and matte paints, depending on what the colour I wanted at the time was available in... They were nasty pieces of work...



Meanwhile: Mummies!

Painted in various shades of white or tan, and then washed with (surprise, surprise) Devlan Mud.
