After my first two articles on model painting just being ink jobs I wanted to share some more complete paint jobs that I had completed for tabletop figures!
We revisit this article in this week’s Flashback Friday! I hope you enjoy!
Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate
This article was orginally published on 29th September 2018
After having a very enjoyable time playing Betrayal at House on the Hill with some friends I decided to pick up a copy myself. Whilst I was looking up the game I discovered that there was a Dungeons and Dragons version of this game; Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate.
I had no choice, I had to get it!
When the box arrived I opened it and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the figures inside the box are very well detailed and molded, and at the same scale as general war-game figures with a 1 inch base (or close enough to pass). However the painting on these figures was, in my view, terrible. The half-orc and the drow had well-printed eyes, but apart from that the painting just completely undermined these beautifully sculpted figures.
This post is unfortunately not a step-by-step on how I fixed these paint-jobs, as I painted these before I decided to record my painting process. This is more of a showcase of what I can do, given that my first two posts were all about inking, without substantial painting to the models.
I have almost finished painting these figures; I just have to complete the ranger (seen in green at the back of the second picture) but I will be more interested in posting up more extensive paint-jobs I do on the Rage of Demons figures I have, followed up by some Warhammer 40,000 and some figures from the Castle Ravenloft and Legend of Drizzt board games.
