More Mansions of Madness Figures

I painted up eight figures from the original boxed set in the 3rd Annual Painting Challenge which were a lot of fun to do and so different to anything else I paint. So on a visit way back in April during a visit to my friends I saw he had bought two of the expansions so offered to paint them,

There they say for months until the shame got so bad I finally got them out and started to paint them up. The shame only got worse as I painted them up really fast managing between one and two figures a session. Photo's taken before base clean up or varnishing as I wanted to send images for him to check they were OK,

The only change was the blue shoes being changed to brown as they just did not work. On varnishing them the paint on the far right figures trousers reacted to the varnish (or the other way round) causing a white residue (clouded varnish?) to form, but just on the trousers. So these needed a quick repaint before sending off to their owner.

So these are off in the post along with posting out my Secret Santa and Santa Clause parcels. Really pleased with what I got sorted for my targets this year and hope they go down well.

Talking of these two Christmas delights, I am told by The Gaffer that both of mine have arrived and are awaiting the tree to be put up. So to both of you many thanks and I will see how good I was come Christmas day.

  1. It is great to get lingering projects cleared away, especially when they turn out this well.

  2. You have gotten really good at painting these kind of figures. Your highlighting is excellent and your transitions are smooth.

    I do like these figures and one day wouldn't mind buying some.

    1. Why thank you Anne, I think the figures can be hard to get your hands on as they only come with the board game but I could be wrong.
