My son got the board game Mice & Mystics from Santa this year. I just finished painting the mice characters (6 of them). I have not painted the minions (centipede, rats, roaches, spider) yet. I like how they turned out as a set, though the last mouse was a little rushed, because I wanted to finish in time for his Mice & Mystics themed Birthday party. Can you figure out which one was rushed? (Hint: it's not the last in line). Here's a photo of my son playing with his friends:
I got a new vampire box of bones, from the friend who talked me into buying one in the first place. So now I get to repaint all the minis I painted when I was just starting. is now This guy is a repost, now with gold bracers. He is from mice and mystics board game (I only bought the figures) and has gone from hero to villain In my campaign he is known as "The Lord of Cats" This figure will shortly serve as a Dire Lion, so I wanted to paint him as cat like as possible. Ill post the earlier (hellhound version) after I get a new picture of him. I think I completed hound in late 2013, shown is a second attempt at the him, the first was terrible. and thankfully has no photos.
Nissiana and I are quite happy to have picked up a commission, and even more excited to share it with y'all! These are the gamepieces for the Mice & Mystics base game and the first expansion. I'm sad I've never had the chance to play, but I'm fairly certain I can remedy that the next time we host a board game night. And I'll eventually want to buy a set for us, because these minis are great! The minis themselves are a soft plastic similar to Bonesium, but cast in a tan color. There were a few mold lines and injection points that needed a little cleanup, but really these are pretty high quality casts. The extent of prep was trim a bit of flash (super simple with a scalpel, just like Bones), wash in some dishsoapy water, and prime. Nice sculpts, too, with good detail and a lot of character. The aesthetic is a good bit more "realistic" (realism being relative, we're talking anthropomorphic rodents, after all) than Reaper's mouselings, but I still think the mice are totes adorbs, as the kids say. And the villains, a host of creepy-crawlies and less savory rodents, are sufficiently menacing. But enough yammer. Photos! The bunch primed up: Various scalawags and neer-do-wells: Rats: A spider, a centipede, an ant-warlock and a slew of roaches: I'll be painting all the arthropods. I'm actually really looking forward to the cockroaches, believe it or not. And a group shot of the Heroes: Nissiana will be painting up the rodents. You can see she's already got a good start on several of them; I'll let her talk about that once she gets home from rehearsal tonight (or tomorrow during the day sometime). We'll be painting these to a "tabletop" standard; the end result should be easy to differentiate on the table and attractive in the hand, but we don't hope to win any Sophie Trophies with the lot. Let us know what you think as we move along!
