Miniatures Painting Thread

Recommended Posts

I know I can't be the only Tagger that plays table top wargames. And since I didn't see a thread for this already, I figured I would add some pics. Excuse the quality, phone camera is not the best. I should just make a gallery, wont let me upload but so much, but I will try and get more up when I can.

Those look good!  I never got into the minis games because I didn't want to sink all kinds of money into it, so instead I just waste money on board games.  I've always wanted to try warhammer though.

Very nice man, I try to get into that stuff but never liked my paint jobs and had no patience for the very small parts so I do the next best thing watch youtubers do it.

Those look great. I know that @Hoptimus plays tabletop games but not sure if he is into miniatures. And @QuiGonGinRummy prints out his own miniatures.  It looks like something I would enjoy getting into. Especially when I see the ships they have for that Star Wars game.

It's enjoyable but time-consuming.  Back when I still played D&D regularly I used to buy & paint those that I thought best represented the characters & classes my players were playing as.  If you do so, use Acrylic based paints since they dry the fastest.  Eyes are typically the toughest part considering the sizes of these things, but I always started with a white primer anyway for the figures.

Thanks guys. The top picture is for Blood Bowl, and the bottom is a post apocalyptic warband for a newer game we are trying. Always use acrylic paints, enamel is so hard to work with. Also, Cbaoth, try priming in black, its way easier to hide a mistake that way. I still use white sometimes, depends on the colors I will use in the final paint job. Will dig up some of the better ones I have done, these were quick batch paint jobs.

Check out some of the Games Workshop boxed games. They have some that are a nice balance between board game and miniatures game. Also, you can always paint the minis from a board game. I am working on the ones from Last Night on Earth right now, and Imperial Assault.

My Skaven Blood Bowl team. Took me to decent showing in the last league I played in. Not the full team, but a few of the positionals.

Sounds like you need a bigger table. On another note, some post apocalyptic survivors for a game I have coming up in a few weeks. Will be going up against the military style guys above.
